General Discussion » Discussion Directory ~ Chat about New Anime & Manga!

@takashichea: There's no need to ask first. We make threads for all the new anime and we already have threads for other big shonen shows like Fairy Tail and Toriko, so it only makes sense to have threads for Naruto and One Piece as well.

I might check out Space Dandy tonight. I heard the dub is airing at the same time, I don't think that's ever happened before with anime. Not sure if I want to watch it dubbed or subbed, I guess I could check both out and see which I prefer.

Anything else I can do for you guys and gals? Just call me when you need me.

We could probably do with anime discussion threads for One Piece and Naruto if you feel up to it.

Pupa was pushed to the winter season. Now, it's airing on Crunchyroll this week, on Thursday as a full series. I recommend you watch it. It gives me the Oreimo vibe. Pupa is no longer a micro series.

Nah I don't think so, Oreimo was basically a romantic comedy that turned into a harem in the second season. Pupa is some incest horror anime where the sister literally eats the brother. I'm up for giving most things a shot, even when they seem weird or gross at first glance (Mysterious Girlfriend X comes to mind) but Pupa doesn't interest me at all.

So far I'll be checking out Space Dandy and I'll definitely watch Maken-ki! Two, not sure about anything else just yet. I'm still behind on Golden Time and Infinite Stratos 2 at the moment, I've been busy watching True Blood.

Off-Topic » Christmas Character Icons for Everyone!

@takashichea: Those portraits are okay but a little on the small side. The heads should almost fill the icon, don't worry too much about cutting hair/hats off around the edges.

I uploaded the KyoAni portraits in my previous post above. How did you get those Fairy Tail ones? I swear Shonen franchises don't have a lot of official art.

Yeah, usually that's true, but sometimes they release art books and you know how Hiro Mashima loves drawing his characters all the time. I already deleted the image those portraits are from but it was probably from the art book.

You can buy it on Amazon (although it looks like it ships from Japan through Amazon US, on Amazon UK they seem to stock it themselves) I have it on one of my wish lists.

Off-Topic » Christmas Character Icons for Everyone!

@takashichea: Well how very Scrooge of you to set up a Christmas profile contest and then not bother to do your own. I stick by what I said; for shame indeed! ;P

I might change the default images for fun on Christmas.

It would be a lot of effort just for one day. It would be better to do it now and change them back after Christmas. As long as someone keeps a list of characters to make it easy to find them and change them back, I see no problem with it :)

Off-Topic » Christmas Character Icons for Everyone!

Hey guys, Christmas is nearly here, but I've noticed some of you aren't using a festive icon/avatar on your profile. For shame! Luckily for you however, I've made a bunch you can use, free of charge! Check them out:

You can find them here to set as your profile icon and/or portrait image.

Don't see one you like? Don't worry! I'll be posting more as I make them. Also feel free to post any requests you might have and I'll see what I can find for you.

I would just try watching it, and if you find it insulting at any point, stop watching it.

Gohan » is mystic gohan stronger than vegito

Not even close. Don't forget when Vegito fought Super Buu, Buu had absorbed Gohan, and he couldn't touch Vegito.

  • One of those non-anime shows I need to watch (Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Spartacus) as well as some anime (Jojo's Bizzare Adventure, Slayers)
  • Video Games (Metro: Last Light, Metal Gear Rising: Revengance, Shin Megami Tensei IV)
  • Comics (Hellblazer, Doom Patrol, Fables, Saga of the Swamp Thing, Monster)
  • Non-graphic books (Wolves of the Calla, Blood of Elves, Tuf Voyaging)
  • A robot/mecha

What, a figure or just a lifesize mech? That might be a bit much to ask for Christmas :P

Season 7 of Doctor Who (any season from Tennant's Final season to current season would be ok)

I think the first Doctor Who release I'd like to own is the 50th anniversary special. So awesome. If I ever buy the series I'd like a full box set, but they're pretty expensive.

@DBZ_universe said:

Helping charities and to see poor children smile. That is what I want the most and nothing more.

That's good all year around, but there's nothing wrong with wanting something for yourself for Christmas too :)

Just added something new to my list, coolest mood lamp ever! I wonder if you can buy more than one and put them together without anything blowing up...

General Discussion » Share Your Christmas List!

@takashichea: I was thinking about getting a little black Supernatural Impala for my desk or shelf, but I'd rather get a TARDIS from Doctor Who, the problem is the one I want is out of production and hard to find at a decent price, so it's not on my wish list right now :(

I know it's super nerdy, but I can't wait to get my hands on a set of really cool looking dice to use as damage counters and coins for the Pokémon TCG. I'd never searched for dice online before, it gets super crazy! Chessex do some really cool stuff.

I want a set of these:

Ideally both, then I can use one set as damage counters and the other as coins and vice-versa.

General Discussion » Share Your Christmas List!

Hey guys, Christmas is roughly two weeks away, and if there's one thing you're never too old for it's making a Christmas list!

I have mine set up on Amazon (I highly recommend using Amazon for making wish lists, you can add items from any website so it's really convenient) so you can check it out here. Usually there would be a bunch of video games on there but I have enough to play through right now so I'm focusing on my Pokémon TCG obsession, haha.

What's on your Christmas List?

@Marshal Victory said:

@Daniel_Newton: 9 will have ya like her more i think.Getn to be one crowded harem.

Yeah she's definitely grown on me, but she isn't very high up on the harem totem pole of this show for me. I'd probably put them in this order: Charlotte > Tatenashi > Laura > Houki > Kanzashi > Ling > Kanzashi > Cecilia

@takashichea said:

If I'm not mistaken, that's Daniel's favorite gal right on the cover from Infinite Stratos.

Yep. Tatenashi is a very close second though!

That Crisis Vine from that Mega Venusaur would destroy me. I would hate to see that paired up with a Virbank Gym card.

Okay, yeah, now I can imagine Mega Venasaur in a deck. Mega Venasaur + Virbank City Gym + Hypnotoxic Laser could be a pretty powerful combo.

Did you see the new EX versions of their previous evolutions? I heard rumors that Mega Pokemon can only evolve from EX. So, the pokemon company have also released EX versions of Venusaur and Blastoise. And the thing is, both of the newly released cards are basic pokemon, which would make their mega evolution alot more usable.

Yeah I saw them. I assumed it was a given that Megas could only evolve from EX cards, but I guess we don't know for sure. Can we play 4 regular cards and 4 EX cards of the same Pokémon? If you could then you could potentially have 8 Pokémon to evolve from in the same deck, that sounds kinda crazy.

@Acura_Max: Dude have you seen the Mega Venasaur and Mega Blastoise cards? I want them sooooo bad!

They have crazy HP, only one attack, and Mega Evolving ends your turn. I'm not sure how viable they are, but boy are they cool.
