To Aru Majutsu no Index » Railgun: How powers work and could drugs increase power.

@cfatalis:  @Wraith: Well sorry I missed index. I'm going to take a guess and say he is a bad guy.  
I'm starting to think the old school x-men was better on the power and character front then this show.  
Well at least Railgun got the whole Child Errors/government conspiracy going for it.

To Aru Majutsu no Index » Railgun: How powers work and could drugs increase power.

Ok, I know the show hardly take it self seriously but when it dose the show is enjoyable. Plus it is really late so I started to think of the level upper. So far this is what we know about powers.  
1) To have power you must first create you own reality. This is where the show get all Schrodinger's cat on us. So much show the actual example of putting a cat in a box in brought up in class.  
2) Sometimes sound wave can cause powers to increase or diminish. This is show by the level uppers episodes where a song is use to increase powers. It's not really a song just some noise looping in a sound file. There is also a half filler episode where a van with some huge speakers is use to block out powers. 
3) The espers are all connected somehow. It seams that people with powers are connected in some way. We don't know for sure how but this is shown in several episodes. It is how the level uppers backfires on everyone who used them and it is causing Poltergeist (don't worry about it int not that important) 
4) All espers create a AIM (An Involuntary Movement) It some sort of field that is generated when powers are used. This is also why 2 works (maybe) 
5) You must have two X chromosomes to have powers. There no real proof of this and one guy dose have the power to stop other powers but hay tell I see more characters that are male espers I'm counting it. 
 
What's the point, well we know powers can increase via outside influence so if you want to distort reality and make your own why not use drugs. The one that comes to my mind is THC via Cannabis. It may work for only a short time but why can't the show deal with that? 
 
(ok it's too late/early and l'll finish or fix this in the ASAP) 
 
P.S.  Thoughts?

Just Anime » Railgun should be better then it is. (Spoilers)

A Certain Scientific Railgun is not a entirely bad show but neither is it that good. However, it had a potential to be better. Around ep.11 and 12  it is reviled that an early government experiment on esper powers went wrong resulting in the death of 12 or more kids only to be cover up. Do the main characters who are typical 'good guy' to the point where it is almost annoying, investigate or even question the government that they work for. No, they act as if nothing ever happened and go back to work/school. I know Railgun is mostly a moe show but it seems like they flirt with a more serious plot only to go back to moe but with superpowers sub par show. I will continue to watch Railgun hoping the plot will pick up. Will it, probably not. 
 
Anyone else think the same thing or watched a show hoping it will get better?

Gossip Girl » Gossip Girl manga (smi-review)

First let it be said I can't believe I'm do this.  Oh well.
As of the last two issues of Yen Plus that is the Jan and Feb 2010 issues. Gossip girl has be featured in them and thought there are only 2 chapters are out so far I am surprised that I am still well.... enjoying it. Adaptations are nothing new to Yen Ex: 'Maximum Ride'  with Gossip Girl even thought I do not wish to read the novel Yen has done a good job in making it into a readable manga. First by finding a fan of Gossip Girl and a good artist Hyekyung Beck who states in an epilogue of the first chapter that the series will be more like a spin-off that direct manga adaptation. 
So what's not so bad about Gossip Girl. Well...  
1) It's refreshing to see a series not take place in Japan or in school. Most scenes so far take place in clubs or apartments. I not saying school has no part in it but at least its a series that dose not take place in the class room.   
2) Non-moe: the women and men are both sexy and their is eye candy everyone to enjoy.  
3) Non-Perfect humans: Having all the money and time with no parents hanging around dose not give you good habits sex, drinking, and drugs are show or mentions but stays with in a PG-13 rating so far.  
 
Gossip Girl is not one of my favorite sires but lets not be so quick to write it off. If you get Yen Plus or you on day see the Manga on you local book store shelves give it a read you might like it.

General Discussion » ViceSquad Casting request

Hay, it's time to do another ViceSquad and I want to know who wants in. 
All you will need is a mic and Skype. Don't worry if you don't have it Skype free but you are on your own with the mic. 
We will talk about the winter shows are coming up so know that but other than that you really don't need to know that much about anime/manga. 
Also no one under 18. (I don't want to deal with that S***) 
 
If you are interested there PM me or leave a post in this forum. 
 
PS. We usually do the show at 9 or 10PM CST but we can work around that a bit.

General Discussion » Anime character you would want as a bodyguard

At first I was going to say one of the Gunslinger Girl's preferably Triela or Rico. But then I thoguth that would be too much of a pain to deal becaues I would have to replace them to much. 
So I'm going with Walter Dornez form Hellsing  not only is he a great body guard that will kill anything alive or undead he is also a butler. Now as long as he doesn't kill me. 
    
Old bastard going to kill you.

General Discussion » Japanese Indies games on Xbox live. (wait, WHAT?)

All right That did not take long. それでも、私は愛している (Still, I love) is not an eroge. Seems to be a verital novle so for (and one I can't read). I took some pics I apologize for the poor quality I took them with a sub par digital camera.

The game brake down like this. Talk to girl on roof, talk to girl at lunch, talk to girl in hallway and in shoe locker area. Talk to wall. (I don't know why) Talk to girl in room. Push Girl down on bed (now were getting some where, ok nothing really happens). Girl gets up and talk in room some more. Brown color flash back. Then talk to girl on roof. Credits. (Hay end song sounds like it was done by Miku.)

I kind of what to know what going on but the game dose not really deserve the 3/3 rating on sex that xbox indie give it. unless the next volumes have more.

General Discussion » Japanese Indies games on Xbox live. (wait, WHAT?)

Today I turned on my Xbox 360, and I was surprise to see two Japanese games in the indie section. I downloaded trials of both to figure out what they were.
The first one: クレッシェンドシンフォニー (Symphonic crescendo) seems to be a regular shooter with a anime looking witch character. If you like shooter give it a try I guess.
However the second one: それでも、私は愛している (Still, I love) Looks like an eroge. The trial game only shows a anime looking school girl talking to you on what seems to be a school roof. It has voice acting but it and the show text is all in Japanese. However the game has a rating of 3/3 for sex. so maybe there is more. (I'll tell you when I find out)
Both game are made by: nakfiv and are 240 micosoft points

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya » What could make the "Endless Eight" better?

With the current arc of "Endless Eight" we all feel like Nagato. From what I read and a gut feeling I have I fear "Endless Eight" will be in fact eight episodes. That is really a pain but what could have made this better? One of the simplest solutons would have been not to have so many dam episodes. But I think if KyoAni were going to have that many eiposeds they could have taken this opprotnity to experimant with them. The problem is that the episodes are to similar to one another. If KyoAni changed the art style (radically in some cases) with each telling of "Endless Eight" if could have been something interesting.

What do you think could have made it better, other than having less episodes?

Super Sentai » Rolling Bomber Special.

Seeing some power ranger like stuff on the site reminds me of a video I once saw called the Rolling Bomber Special. It is about of a random guy who is harassed buy ranger because they think he is a bad guy that wants to destroy earth. He doesn't think this and the ranger a vary bad so they become for of an annoyance than a real problem for him. It a really hilarious video and deserves a good watch. Link
