DEmotivational Posters have been the craze of internet parodies for many years now and although they are similar in concept to Internet MEME Pictures they differ because they have a particular style which capitalizes on the intent of the popular and original motivational posters often used in the common workplace

So…….what the hell does that have to dew with this “competition” you may ask…okay…let’s explain how this is all gonna go down

Introduction

So the aim of the game is to make the most impressive Anime / Manga DEmotivation poster you can think of. Whether its humour based, weird or just oozes AWESOMENESS for some reason, it needs to stand out and be particularly memorable to be hailed as the best of the bunch.

Personally, I have been making these DMP’s for fun for a while since back when I was just another forum post-er on various anime websites such as crunchyroll, MAL and even AnimeNFO so I can tell you I’ve seen a shitload of these before and I (as well as the other judges) will be looking for ORIGINALITY & CREATIVITY first and foremost and not just ready-made DMP’s done by other people from other sites…….not to say these are excluded btw….they are not…I am just telling you it would be best if you made something yourself from scratch

To give you an example…..about a year ago (when I was bored at my old shitty mundane J.O.B) I actually took the time and went through 3000 pages of DMP’s on the following link below just to pass the time and amuse myself……..this will give you an idea of what we are looking for in an Anime / Manga DMP

3000 PAGE ANIME / MANGA DMP EXAMPLE

So for the record if I see any entries that I've already seen from the above thread or any overly popular one's i have seen floating around the internet in general…..trust me, your chances of being top dog will be exceptionally less……SO BE ORIGINAL!

Instructions

Alright, so making your picture is really REALLY simple. The first and most important thing you will need is a picture / screenshot / scanshot of the image you want to use for your DMP.

Once you have that you can head on over to a demotovational generator site like http://diy.despair.com then upload your image there and enter your one or two phrases (either is acceptable) and voila you've made your first entry.

Of course there are tons of other DEmotovational poster making sites out there if you don’t like the one I posted above….as long as your site of choice uses a generator that sticks to the black background, white border DMP style and phrase(s) your good to go.

Here’s a YOUTUBE VIDEO as an example.......for you tyro knuckleheads

Here's the link to the site used in the above video CLICK and an EVEN COOLER ONE

ANIME EXAMPLE

MANGA EXAMPLE

THE GRAND PRIZE IS $100 WORTH OF ANIME AND MANGA GOODNESS

COURTESY OF

The $100 gift Voucher will be from the very popular Anime Superstore ROBERTS ANIME CORNER STORE which is based in the United States but ships all their products INTERNATIONALLY. (please check the website for possible shipping restrictions)

For those who may ask….hey, why didn't you guys use an Amazon.com gift voucher instead?

Well, that is a dumb question tbh because this is about ANIME & MANGA and to make sure we put money back into the industry we love we have decided to go with a retailer that is limited to such merchandise. If we went with a more flexible retailer such as Amazon you could just go and buy the twilight saga’s DVD and Book collection and that is not at all what we are about here……keep in mind this is a competition made for Anime & Manga fans by Anime & Manga fans.

Roberts AC store sells a plethora of Anime / Manga related merchandise so we feel its purrrrfect for our needs!

The Wrap Up

It should be worth noting that even though there will be only ONE grand prize winner for this particular competition, our three favorite DMP’s will be featured on the front of the Planet Tyro group page for ALL to see up until the new year 2013!

This competition will obviously be good promotion for the group planettyro.com, a good chance to make new buddies and most importantly it’s gonna be enjoyable watching you guys try to one up each other with some great DMP’s

Your Judges are Myself: (Donwun), Nuansay & the Old Boy from The DREAMcast

Results will be posted on planettyro.com on Friday the 7th of December and the winner will be sent their $100 Roberts Anime Corner Gift Voucher by Spill.com’s Personal message feature which is only available to the members of planettyro and Spill.com so once again we remind anyone interested to sign up in order to participate!

and welcome to DREAMcast’s first Halloween instalment of The NIGHTMARECAST

Yes that’s right folks on this episode your host’s Donwun & The Old Boy wrestle with the interesting topic of your not so friendly protagonist THE ANTIHERO!

Now at first this might not seem like a particularly ghoulish topic for a Halloween podcast but when you come to think about it these so called dark hero’s have raised the bar in what people in general are used to seeing in terms of violence and horror. So to drive that point on in our conversation for once we here @ DC broaden our discussion into the wide world of Television and Film bringing up some the more recently enjoyed Antihero brands.

Things like Dexter, Breaking Bad, The Punisher, The BATMAN, movies where people are enjoying chaos, murder and horror: SAW, Piranna 3D, Nightmare on Elm Street…ya know the commonly know stuff

This leads me to ask the question what actually scares us nowadays in media.....in where we have a startling revelation about Katface(well, startling to me anyway)

Then once we get all that outta the way we get back to the Anime & Manga stuff in true Halloween fashion, which leads us onto what should be the epitamy of terror….DEMONS

DEVILMAN – a title me and katface have been looking forward to discussing on the podcast for a while now

We also discuss Demons in general and how in anime and manga they are pretty much seen as any other normal character…with no real emphasis on terror, hell or anything else you would think a demon would be about....more of a means to an end in terms of power and other exploitable traits....bah

Then we end with some nice Halloween recommendations

From Myself (Donwun) - Higurashi, Perfect Blue & Boogiepop Phantom

The Old Boy - Portus, I Am A Hero, Ibitsu & The Works of Junji Ito

and finally from our uninvited guest - Garden of Sinners Paradox Spiral & Noein

Oh did I not mention we are joined on this episode by an uninvited guest that has escaped from prison…..AGAIN!

And lastly here’s some are EXTRA LINKSrelated to some of the topics discussed on this episode

Anime & School Life OBSESSION

We change things up a little bit on this episode and steer off the usual review / single title analysis path and focus more on an open discussion episode instead.

The topic you ask………did you miss the headline above? jeez it’s….Anime & School life obsession……to be exact…what is it with anime and the school settings. Whether it’s used as a premise, a excuse, or just an idea…why is it so many anime / manga titles take place in schools.

Is it the about appealing to the masses…is it about the perfect place for unlimited fanservice hijinks, is it about setting easy story boundaries viewers can automatically understand or is it just the perfect theme that fans will never ever get tired of no matter how many times it is used

Well, to discuss the possibilities in greater detail I have kindly requested the help of two fellow Animephiles, Starting with a returning guest……the lovely Angel Otaku!

Next we have a new guest from the realms of AnimeVice and YouTube….Sotyfan16

cracks knuckles

Alrighty….this is quite the meaty podcast folks….and to delve more into the school theme topic we sift thru a bucket-load of quote-unquote “school themed” anime titles….from individual random picks to our best and worst’s

Here is just a few of the titles we discuss on this episode

B Gata H Kei: Yamada`s First Time, School Rumble, Green Green, Happy Lesson, Tenjou Tenge, I My Me Strawberry Eggs, Cat Planet Cuties, Clannad, Ouran High School Host Club, Golden Boy, Tora Dora, Maid-sama and a lot more

I also want to thank Sotyfan16 for pointing me in the direction of this excellent blog series written by AnimeVice user madpierrot who has had first-hand experience as a teacher in a Japanese school and has written a series of blogs pointing out the fiction in anime schools to the reality in real Japanese schools.

These blogs are fantastic and I highly recommend you read and share them with anybody you may find to have interest with such things
