This list should tell you who I voted for. <3
I liked having mini-bios to go along with girls' pictures, makes me feel less shallow about judging the girls. xD
@Daniel_Newton: Also, lol you should have used one of those pics for Shiina instead, I would've voted for her in an instant!
edit: you know I just realized for whatever reason, I have a strange phobia/dislike of really large-breasted women. o.O" In some ways that might be just as bad as automatically disliking women who are fat. If that's so, then... am I a shallow monster? o.O! Must think on this some more..
Well I watched about 15 series that aired in/started/ended in 2012... And I probably watched and finished a couple of older series in there. So I said 16-20. Hmm I probably should have counted anime I'm currently watching and started in 2012.. so it's probably actually 21-25
I voted for Chie! This time my thought process was a little different, haha. But I'll spare the details this time. =P
Ultimately I voted for Chie because she doesn't need a sexy swimsuit to win! It's not about the swimsuit, it's about the girl in the swimsuit! *deep* *gameover* *sunglasses*.
Also as a side note, it's pretty interesting to compare different art styles and the different portrayals of female characters.
I ended up voting for Tomo... Not sure why I haven't even watched the series, but here was sort of my thought process of why I like certain female characters over others.
It was between Tomo and Nami. My first thought was that Nami would be more able to beat me up, but then I was like... Saeko and Nico could probably beat me up if they wanted to... I guess it comes down to being more mature? Nami, although pretty level-headed and rational, can sometimes get swept up in emotions. But then I was like... is Tomo more mature than Nami?... ehhhh.
So I figure my decision ended up being about who would be less violent. Saeko and Nico probably wouldn't resort to violence if they didn't need to. Whereas Nami has shown to be violent to keep other people in line, like punching Luffy/Sanji/Zoro/Ussop in the head for acting silly.
And I guess that says something about why I either prefer more innocent characters or more mature characters, because there is more predictability about how they will act. Here I'm assuming that Tomo is an innocent character, but I could be wrong, since I haven't seen the anime. xD
P.S. Keep up the polls, this is turning out to be more interesting than I thought it would be (for me at least). =D
@takashichea: Lol thanks for spoiling it, xD lol j/king. Sounds like a pretty typical ending. I'm probably still gonna see it through, but for the past few episodes I've been kind of like "meh, I just want to get this series over with."
Where'swhen you need him ;P I'm interested to see what he suggests.
I can't really say too much about the animation and fight scenes, since I am only around episode 200. BUT, just looking at the arc breakdown on the One Piece page, it looks like ep300 is right in the middle of the Enies Lobby Arc (eps 262-325).
I have heard that both the Enies Lobby Arc and the preceding Waters 7 Arc (eps 221-261) are really amazing though.
For all the continued hard work on the site, especially community spotlight. Also, I'd like to think that part of the reason I got into One Piece was because I saw some of his work on the One Piece pages. :P
How he still contributes to the site with school, I have no idea. I admire his patience and optimism. The seasonal anime trailers blog is probably one of the most useful things to be added to this site in a while.
For well-informed opinions and contributions to various discussions about anime.
I have not really enjoyed the fairy-tale parts either, but I can see that they're trying to make parallels to the relationship between Rokka and Atsushi. Like how in episode 6 they were tending to an injured bird, like how Rokka used to visit Atsushi in the hospital.
It's a lot of pushing and pulling and indecision, kind of like real life I guess, and I feel like it's trying to be really subtle and careful while building up to something big. I can feel it in the way that I watch it. Like whenever I see Hazuki in the real world, I have to keep switching in my head like "okay.. wait.. this is actually Atsushi speaking through Hazuki, so whatever Atsushi says, Rokka is going to be hearing it from Hazuki, how will this change the way Rokka takes what he says?" And then there's lots questions that keep running through my head like, 'who is doing the right thing?', who is going to 'end up' with who?, will there be a 'happy-fairy-tale' ending? None of which have 'right' answers. =\ I'm really interested to see where this series decides to go. However it turns out, it's going to be a really delicate ride until the end. (pun not intended)
Just watched ep3. Hah, so you can hide your player level. That would be interesting in an actual game, making it closer to REAL LIFE. o.O"
Getting wiped by a trap mob... true story. Also not sure if crunchyroll made a typo spelling "Reindeer" in the episode title. Unless it's some sort of pun on snow being like frozen rain.
It was an okay episode, but so far the only thing this series really has going for it is the whole game-real life dynamic, and related fate/free will discussions. For example, what kind of person Kirito is in real life versus who he is in the game, or how the game forces him to play in certain ways and/or interact with people differently than in "real" life. But even then, the series hasn't done too much with that yet.
@Daniel_Newton: Yeah that's what I've been doing to get around the second bug, but thought I'd mention it anyway so it's out there.
Okay FINALLY I figured out how to access the proper gallery for episode images. Thanks. Now time to do some repair work.
edit: alright, I'm just going to remove all images from the wiki galleries then try attaching them again.
So I uploaded some screenshots, and then attached them to the episode page like I normally do, but it looks like some images were added 2 or 3 times.
I already tried fixing it by removing the copies manually from the images sections, but the episode page still shows multiples.
I'm using Chrome and Windows 7.
Edit: well since I'm here I might as well report a second bug about image uploading. Whenever I want to select images I have already uploaded to add to a page, I start selecting images, then scroll down, and the images I have already selected will reappear, sometimes they will already be selected, other times they will be unselected. If they are unselected and I reselect them, the image count does not change, but if they are selected and I click on them to unselect them the image count goes down.
