General Discussion » is Kyouran Kazoku Nikki in english yet!?

Have you ever heard of Google? It took me about ten seconds to find out that it is NOT licensed in English at this time.

Off-Topic » HOW MEANY OF YOU ARE IN TO MY ANIME "MAGGNORIYIONS"!!??

Thank all the blessed gods above for that.

My question remains, though. Who's supposed to animate it? Do you have a character designer and chief animator? Tweeners? Some kind of method of distribution?

Just Anime » most populer anime in japan!!??

...Well, how do you want to measure it? Sales? Amount of merchandise? Longest-running?

The longest-running anime in Japan is a show called Sazae-san. Second is Doraemon, which is also huge in terms of merchandise. They've probably made the most money, but it's by virtue of being around a long time (Sazae-san has literally been running for forty years-- since 1969 --and Doraemon since 1979, not including a brief show that ran in 73.)

Sazae-san still consistently sits towards the top of the Oricon most-watched charts. So it's probably the "most popular" anime overall. But of the two I'd bet that Doraemon has made more money, because it markets itself with merchandise and movies and stuff.

General Discussion » your ideas for the Maggnoriyions, what type of anime should it be

Okay, what?

You said you have someone writing it. You said that it's sci-fi/action.

What do you want from us, exactly?

Angel Sanctuary » What's the Title Refer To?

In some cases, a title has more to do with sounding cool than anything specific. I'm guessing Angel Sanctuary is one of those.

Although there ARE angels involved in the series. The "sanctuary" could be Setsuna and Sara's love, or something.

Just Manga » HOMEWORK: How Has Manga Changed?

There actually isn't REALLY such a thing as "swear words" in Japanese anyway, just really impolite forms of speech. So it's hard to say that they've actually "cut out swearing." But I get what you mean.

...But as you say, VIZ has done it for some time now, and plenty of companies before them, so it's not really something that's "changed."

I feel like there are less manga series to get excited about. It's sort of like we've mostly caught up and are releasing series that are big in Japan (even if we might be behind them in specific chapters/volumes), and now we're waiting with them for the next big breakout thing. Which might explain declining sales.

I mean, think about it...20 years ago, even 10 years ago there were still plenty of majorly popular series that hadn't been licensed. There aren't a lot of those now...and those that are there probably CAN'T be licensed or they already would have. But so, that means that 10 years ago, maybe a quarter or even half of new licensing announcements were ZOMG BIG DEAL kind of things. Now the new licenses are so new they haven't necessarily had time to build up audiences in Japan, which means more risk for the companies that license them and less interest from buyers, unless the series significantly breaks out.

I think that plays a part. I think it's true for the anime world as well.

The magic of the Internet: you could create an anime for a country you are not physically living in.

Off-Topic » CHANGE OF PLANS maggnoriyions new future!!!!

I wouldn't normally nitpick, but since we're specifically talking about spelling in this thread, it's "per se," not "per say." Sorry, it's just a random minor pet peeve of mine. Obviously you don't have anywhere near the issues LordHaseo does with spelling. :)

I think what DocHaus is trying to say is...no one is ever going to take you or your works seriously if YOU don't take them seriously enough to learn how to spell. Hell, even in your own post, you referred to both "maggnoryion" and to "MAGGNORIONS," and you came up with the name.

"Disney characters in anime form, hm...................."
ok go watch Metropolis, that idea is more realistic then you think. As for you question, I somewhat hard to get a good anime out of the game. I go with Ninja Gaiden or Dead or Alive, at the very least the can hide the fact that there little to no story with violence and fan service."
I don't remember any Disney characters in Metropolis O_o;;

Off-Topic » is ARIES illegal

You mean Ares? It's not illegal in and of itself any more than BitTorrent or the entire freakin' Internet is, but downloading copyrighted files without paying for them is definitely illegal...no matter what program you use to do it.

Why didn't you just reply to the same thread to ask about this?
