@Acura_Max: Absolutely, the same thought occurred to me earlier today. You should run it, or FinalDasa if he's interested.

Editing & Tools » What Counts as Anime and Manga in the Wiki

@takashichea: I don't really think we should add any western stuff we don't already have in the wiki. He would be better off backing up his work and going to Xiaolinpedia.

With Screened ending on March 14, 2014, the wiki scope is widened. You can work on shows that have anime influences. Go wild. Let me know if you need help.

Thank you and I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

I'll repeat what I just said in the other thread so you guys see it:

Don't include "anything" but I think it's safe to say we can hold onto the almost-anime shows for now, like RWBY, Korra, etc.

We don't want to start filling the wiki with random Saturday morning American cartoons or anything.

Editing & Tools » Episode Archive: Hot and Steamy Edition!

Welcome to the "Hot and Steamy" Episode Archive!
Welcome to the "Hot and Steamy" Episode Archive!

The cast finds a reason to spend an episode at a hot spring (温泉 onsen) — a popular type of Japanese resort/attraction similar to communal bathing. It's the Japanese equivalent of a European spa town. Naturally this provides an excusable opportunity for Fanservice if a show is so inclined, although some shows aimed at younger kids will use toweled characters. Some series that aren't geared towards younger viewers will broadcast with towels (and/or Censor Steam), but remove them from the DVD version as an incentive to buy the DVDs.

In milder situations, this is merely equivalent to a bath scene where the episode slows down so the characters can relax and think about the events of the day. Often a trip to an onsen will lead to characters accidentally seeing each-other in the nude. Or intentionally seeing each other in the nude. Or falling onto each other in the nude... whatever they want, really, as long as someone ends up naked.

The low-budget version of this is the sento [銭湯] episode, where the characters go to the public bath house together. Usually, it's because there's a plumbing or other utility failure at home.
TV Tropes

To add episodes to the archive, all you need to do is find them in the wiki and make sure the page has some screen cap images we can use for the archive, that's all there is to it. The hot spring or bathhouse scene doesn't need to fill the whole episode to qualify. Post a link to an episode in this thread and a moderator will add it to the list!

There is no need to be formal with me. You may not know the person is much younger than you. Just address by their name or nickname for this community.

Heh, just a quick point; when someone says something like "keep up the good work kind sir!" or "good sir" or "good man" ...or something along those lines, it's not strictly informal. It's more like a friendly sign of respect that can be between friends or strangers. I know English isn't your first language so I thought I'd point that out.

Anyway, back on topic.

@takashichea said:

This would be my first Yuri show. It looks normal and sweet. When I think of yuri, I pictured this show to have an aggressive gal who is after this passive gal. Partly because of this theme in yaoi manga that I heard from my little sister and anime fans online that yaoi tends to have a aggressive guy and a passive guy.

I'm glad this show is normal. There are too many weird romantic shows out this season.

Well I'm halfway through episode 2 and it looks like there are at least two other yuri couples as well as the protagonists, so there are plenty of personalities. But yeah, the main couple are both shy and sweet, though one is more forward and open than the other.

General Discussion » Wiki Project PMs ~ Lets Conquer the Wiki Together!

@takashichea: PM started! I also created the franchise page and logo image. For the record; every anime/manga series should be attached to a franchise page, even if it's the only thing in that franchise.

Good luck with the project!

General Discussion » The Blue Exorcist Club

@Ikki_Minami_: I appreciate the effort you went to in making this but like I said when you PMed me over a week ago:

The club threads are more reserved for things that aren't specific anime or manga series, also I can't make a post that two users can edit. What you guys want is a Blue Exorcist discussion thread. Luckily we already have one! I've updated it to match the current standards and added it to the Discussion Directory. The thread is practically untouched, so feel free to chat about Blue Exorcist to your heart's content!

Discussion threads are for anime and manga series. Clubs are for broader topics (like The Ecchi Club, The Shipping Club, etc.) and non-anime/manga topics (Comic Book Club, Pokémon TCG Club, etc.)

Pokémon » Pokémon Trading Card Game Club

New Expansion: XY!

So a bunch of big changes happened to the Pokémon TCG recently. Firstly, the XY expansion was released, here's the official ad video:

Some Notable Cards

  • Yveltal EX - an insanely powerful card which basically has Mewtwo EX's X-Ball attack plus an additional 20 damage on top.
  • Yveltal - a powerful basic Pokémon that goes well with Yveltal EX in a deck.
  • Of course Venusaur EX, Mega Venusaur EX, Blastoise EX, and Mega Blastoise EX are in this set, but I don't know if people have figured out good decks for them yet.
  • Professor's Letter - basically a double energy search.
  • Muscle Band - like the card that lets Dark Pokémon do 20 extra damage per attack, but for any Pokémon.
  • Evosoda - lets you search your deck for the evolution of one of your Pokémon in play and evolve it.
  • Red Card - makes your opponent shuffle their hand into thier deck and draw 4 cards. Great when your opponent has a big hand of cards.

The full list with all the details can be found here.

Huge TCG Online Update!

The online game has been completely revamped. It was super buggy when the update first came out, but it's been patched and now the game, for the most part, is better than ever.

Good changes I've noticed

  • The game used WAY LESS system resources now. Runs so much better.
  • The login screen doesn't jump around between fullscreen and windowed any more, it stays at what you set the game to.
  • The UI has been completely revamped and looks much nicer.
  • You now see all current public trade offers. The ones relevant to you appear at the top of the list.
  • "Beginner" and "Expert" in online versus mode have been replaced with "Practice" and "Ranked"
  • The playmat and game view have been changed. Cards are now easier to see.
  • When you draw more than one card, they're now drawn all at once instead of individually.
  • Chat, friends, and messages have been moved to a hideable menu on the left side of the screen.
  • The menu from the home screen can be accessed from a hideable menu on the right side of the screen.
  • The way the game renders cards has been changed. Instead of dynamically rendering them each time, it uses images.
  • The holo/shiny effects on the cards are rendered differently and many have been corrected.
  • Matchmaking was really buggy/slow before, now you get into matches super fast!

Changes to adjust to

  • At first I HATED the new playmat/game view, but after a day or two I've become quite fond of it. Give it a chance!
  • Drawing cards is faster, but the card animations are now slower. I turned them off and it makes the game really fast-paced, which is nice.
  • Because cards are images now, they aren't altered (HP increase, etc.) when trainer cards or abilities are in use. At first this bummed me out, then I realized that's how it is in real life, and making sure you keep an eye on all the cards and effects during the game probably isn't a bad thing.
  • Also when you see a card for the first time, the game has to download the image for it. After playing for a while you'll have most cards downloaded already.

Bad changed I've noticed

  • The chat menu takes up too much space in a match to have it open all the time, so you have to check it to see if your opponent's said anything.
  • The size of the deck doesn't change. You could have 1 card but it looks like a full deck, so keep your eye on it. Hopefully they'll fix this.
  • The coin flip at the beginning of a match is silent. Probably just a bug.

So, now that I've typed way too much text, here are some screenshots I took:

It takes a while to adjust but overall it's a huge improvement, see you online!

@Sonata:

I have no idea why they feature Heaven's Lost Property since the show had ended a while ago. I never tried it, but there could be something new for the franchise.

They were going to make a third season, which was cancelled in favour of a second movie, which I think is scheduled for April.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Space Dandy Discussion

@Supreme Marvel: Since you seem to be on the fence, you might want to try another episode or two before you ditch Dandy. Each episode is pretty different from the last so you never know what to expect. It has a Saturday morning cartoon quality that you rarely see in anime.

General Discussion » Anime with the hottest chicks

Considering just how many ecchi and harem series there are, it's pretty surprising to see the same choices appearing in this thread. I guess it's a testament to the artwork and characters though, a lot of my choices have been picked multiple times already.

Chapter 370 is most likely one big tease... On the next chapter we will see that everyone is okay and they probably have an afro.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of them end up seriously injured and spend the rest of the arc in bed wrapped in bandages. That's always a strong motivator for Natsu and co. to overcome their enemies. That poor building, though. How many times will it have been rebuilt now?

I'm more interested in the humans being changed into demons. Mira should be interesting, since her powers let her transform into demons in the first place. I bet that will make her immune to the process and whatever they change her into will just become a new demon form she can use.
