Off-Topic » What is good storytelling ?

@ownagepants: That would depend on how popular the title in particular is. In many cases, anime based on ongoing source material is used as promotional material for folks to buy whatever manga, video game, novel, etc... that the title is based on. In many instances, said anime's not getting a sequel, spinoff, prequel or remake. I'd be giddy if the rest of my favorite 2013 anime Aku no Hana adapted the rest of the manga, but I highly doubt that is happening with the manga having recently ended and the nice amount of backlash the series got from irate fans last year because of the rotoscoped animation.

Off-Topic » What is good storytelling ?

Good storytelling is a title taking its time to build things up, drop some hints to tease me in anticipation of things to come, flesh out relevant aspects of the title's world and characters and then devote said final episodes to showing everything that is happening (some exposition is okay, as long as it isn't overused) and having some sort of conflict that challenges the characters and undergo some sort of significant growth or come to terms with some sort of internal conflict. Put all these elements together nicely and you'll get a gem. It's becoming rather difficult to find titles that follow these steps of good storytelling in recent years, especially with titles based on ongoing source materials.

Battles » Spike Spiegel vs Revy

Added a few battle conditions to the match opener since I highly doubt the person who made this thread's popping up.

As for the match...

  1. Revy. She could take a beating from the Terminator Maid (i.e. Roberta), who could punch a man's head off and casually carry around an anti-material rifle one-handed throughout her second rampage in Ronapour.
  2. Revy again. She's been able to dispatch small groups of gunmen head-on without being injured, implying she has some degree of superhuman speed. In comparison, Spike sustained some gunshot wounds from mook Red Dragon members when he was going after Vicious in their final confrontation.

To be fair, I don't think this is a good match for Spike. A number of Black Lagoon characters have some degree of superhuman attributes demonstrated such as Ginji's bullet-cutting feat and Roberta's ridiculous capabilities.

Battles » Perfect Cell Vs Piccolo

I don't recall Piccolo being any more stronger than he was from Buu saga where he'd pose a threat to even Perfect Cell. The Namekian gets slaughtered.

Battles » Sagara Sanosuke VS Guts

If this is a straight-up sword fight, Guts would easily take it. Sano's only capable of attacking with his BFS in a predictable pattern due to its weight while Guts can casually carry his pre-God Hand BFS as such where its a natural extension of his body and can move rather fast with it despite its huge size.

Off-Topic » Questions about the Walt Disney animated Movie Hercules.

@sickVisionz: Disney still does animation, many of their recent works being CG animated (Chicken Little, Meet the Robinsons, Bolt, Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen) and a few traditionally animated ones (Princess and the Frog and Winnie the Pooh. You seem to be assuming that any CG-animated work must have been done by Pixar.

Off-Topic » Questions about the Walt Disney animated Movie Hercules.

@Alpha_Watcher_3000:

1. Inspired, but very loosely.

2. To my knowledge, the major characters of the movie were in with Hercules, Megera, Phil, Hades, Pain, Panic, the Hydra, Rock Titan and Ice Titan (the latter five having no voice actors for them). Three of the four characters reprise their roles from the movie for Kingdom Hearts, minus Danny DeVito as Phil.

3. Besides the mentioned TV series, Disney made a direct-to-video "prequel" the following year called Hercules: Zero to Hero. Like many of Disney's direct-to-video projects, your mileage may vary with how well you enjoy it.
