Editing & Tools » What Counts as Anime and Manga in the Wiki

If you're getting rid of non-Japanese animated shows, shouldn't we also get rid of Japanese shows that aren't animated? Things like Super Sentai and J-Drama (If we have many of that).

General Discussion » Why do Asian girls love Doraemon so much?

Doraemon is much more popular than you're giving it credit for! He's basically a Japanese cultural icon. You'll find more people that know Doraemon than people that know Naruto and such in Japan.

It's not unusual that people in China are very well aware of him as well. Plus there's a lot of merchandise potential with a cute mascot character.

General Discussion » JJBA Anime

David Production are working on the Hyper Dimension Neptunia anime. Jojo is taking a break, I guess they'll animate more eventually, since they sold quite a lot of Blurays for the series so far.

Bakuman » Is Bakuman sexist?

Prefering cute and docile women is a preference. Some guys like them, others like out spoken women. Japan especially has a preference for quiet, submissive women, but I don't think it's sexist.
I also assume they're underdeveloped because the majority of readers are young males and they're not interested in girl characters.
 
I dropped Bakuman years and years ago because I thought it was terrible, but I believe the "Promise" was also mutual between the two parties? They wouldn't get together until both had met their dreams if I recall. I'd say the promise was dumb and made for a painfully terrible romance, but not sexist.
 
I feel like people are using the term "sexist" far too loosely these days. If the author made some comment about women being too stupid to live without the intervention of a strong male mangaka then it'd be sexist, now not so much.
Though I dropped it, so maybe it did get like that.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods » Regarding Super Saiyan 4

@Daniel_Newton said:

No images of the God form have been released yet, if you think you've seen one, it's fake.

There're some pretty popular supposed spoilers floating around. They seem so in-depth and ridiculous that I'm not sure whether to believe them or not.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods » Regarding Super Saiyan 4

The Dragonall MMO is generally thought of as the canon follow-up from Z anyway, as Toriyama had a large part in creating the story. The whole thing acts as if GT never happened. The movie is just more evidence really.

Battles » Angemon vs Myotismon

Been a while since I watched it, so not entirely sure. If I remember right Angemon was at least able to damage Myotismon, but Myotismon was then successful in fighting off all 7 of the chosen children (Perfect/Ultimate forms for all but Takeru) at the same time. I think Angewomon only won with an "All of your powers combined" attack. 1 on 1 against just Angemon I think Myotismon would take it convincingly.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Kotoura-san Discussion

Seems pretty good so far! I doubt it'll be exceptional but I'm quite enjoying it.
They changed a couple things from the manga in episode three though, made it a bit more lighthearted.

Sword Art Online » Sword Art Online Anime Discussion

@Supreme Marvel: If you're interested in following the rest of the story check out the light novels instead of the manga. 

Haven't got around to watching the recent episode yet! Felt the second game was kind of weaker than the first. Which one did you guys prefer?

Heroman does. Stan Lee worked on it, and he's a character in a couple of episodes.

General Discussion » What if anime/manga had the same kind of continuity DC/Marvel has

Nah, the reason I got into anime instead of comics is because of the linear plot style. I like being able to pick it up at chapter/episode 1 and go through to the ending of that one same story. The thing stopping me from checking out comics is the no ending, new author takes it up thing.

General Discussion » A good post-300 starting point for One Piece

@sickVisionz: I feel like the problem with the One Piece anime is that the animation is subpar even in newer episodes. The art isn't poor or weird in order to maintain really great looking animation, it's just poor because of the budget.
The art in movie 6 is really strange, the characters look diferent but the animation is very well done and the whole thing flows together. I really like movie 6 despite the weird look. I feel like the series isn't like this at all though. There are tons of still shots, where it's just characters with their mouth and eyes wide open reacting to what someone said.
 
Personally I don't like the kind of filler One Piece does now, not to say you won't enjoy it then since you seem to enjoy filler. My major issue was the episodes are just artifically padded out. Again it's the People react to what's just been said shots that got on my nerves.

General Discussion » A good post-300 starting point for One Piece

Even though the animation improves once they get further on the art style and pacing start to really suffer. Thriller Bark is actually where a lot of people, including myself, gave up on the anime as it was getting pretty bad and hard to follow. There are eventually some really well animated episodes near the end, (Strawhats vs Oz, Nightmare Luffy vs Moria/Oz, etc) but they're few and far between.
There also haven't been that many big fights since Thriller Bark. The big war arc is less about well done fights and focusses more on a new character being introduced and showing off a big move, or little skirmishes between 2 characters that we never see the end of.  
 
Enies Lobby has a couple of filler episodes of character flashbacks for the first 7 just before they start the big fights. The arc had some alright fights, but the art was really inconsistent and occassionally looked stupid as hell. Also you said you probably couldn't even get episodes that early.
If you're only interested in cool, nicely animated fights One Piece might not really be worth it. There's less focus on fights, and the anime is a slog to get through. They mostly stopped doing filler arcs and just padded the main arcs themselves out with a ton of filler. You might want to read the manga and then just watch conclusions to the big fights in the anime.

Nope. There are the light novels though. You never see the Christmas Party anyway.
 
Uhh wait, is this a bot topic? Confused.

One Piece » Supernova's heights and ages as well as other things.

Reader: Odacchi! When I went to the One Piece exhibition, in the Jump One Piece insert art gallery, I see the insert art for chapter 668, “Pirate Alliance Formed!”. In front of Ace’s grave, I saw three sake cups!!! Can I take this as “that person” went to visit Ace’s grave!? The only ones that know about this are Luffy and that person after all…

Oda: Yes, about that insert art for the weekly Jump chapter 668. For the weekly chapters, it’s covered with the text so the readers can’t see it clearly huh… But at that time, at the One Piece exhibition in Tokyo, they put up the clean version without the text and it becomes somewhat like a message of confirmation of “that person”. Later in this manga too this will be confirmed clearly. As to what to think of this, I’ll leave it to your imagination for now. 


 From here.Pretty interesting development!
 
 
Haaaa, this guy is back. I love him.
