General Discussion » Japanese anime vs Marvel and DC anime ( not battle )

@MarioRedfield said:

Well, there's a lot more variety in anime than there is in a single genre of a single company of american animation

I don't even understand the point of saying this. Of course there is more variety in an entire medium that there is in a single genre from a single company. It would be ridiculous for their not to be. That's like saying there's more variety in music as a whole than in any one genre of music or there's more variety in the entire color spectrum than there is in the color green. Duh, of course there is.

@Marshal Victory: Again, you're not citing references that pertain to this. You're citing military people getting harassed. Sinoun did not go to some foreign country and murder people. A violent criminal came onto her soil and she protected her family. Find examples a someone protecting their family and being teased for it. Not indirectly like trying to tie going to Vietnam as protecting their family but something direct where the threat comes to them, the kid saves the day, and is then teased for it.

I just don't think that would happen in the US. Or rather, you might have some people teasing but the overwhelming majority of people would see the kid as a hero. In SAO it was the opposite where the overwhelming majority of people viewed her as a bad person for saving the day. 99/100 times, stopping a robbery and saving the day will get you seen as a hero in the US, not a villain like in SAO. I don't get how this is even arguable between people who live in the US or grew up in the culture.

Editing & Tools » Concept ideas thread.

I would add Chikan. I've seen it in non-hentai anime. Most of that other stuff is pure hentai. Add it as examples on the hentai page or something.

@Marshal Victory: If a little kid stopped a bank robbery in the US, they'd be seen as a hero. Sinoun might get teased for other stuff but she's not going to get teased because she was a 5-year-old marksman and a hero. Comparing that to a war veteran is flaky considering basically every incident of war involving the US is the US going into a foreign country and killing people vs Sinoun's situation which is conceptually the total opposite.

Episode 11

I thought this episode really sucked. Nothing interesting happening and the story development was Kirito making some logic leaps that to me felt like maybe someone realized that they were not going to be able to wrap the story up in the amount of episodes they had left unless they found a way to basically fast forward what everyone knew to a certain point. A bunch of discovery actually happened off screen and in the past. The jump to it must be two people felt like they pulled it out of a hat and within like 1 minute of thinking about it they seemed to have discovered every aspect of it. I also thought it was funny that Kirito seemed to think that Death Gun was bound to some honor system and that the one in the room couldn't kill Sinoun until the signal was given. I thought that was silly because obviously if he's already there and has everything he needs to kill her, he could kill her regardless of whatever was happening in the game.

Bug Reporting » How to get rid of AV mobile handicaps.

I decided to make this thread considering there are lots of users in here who complain that there aren't as many options in the ipad version of CV as the PC version. So I made this thread to fix that and tell you how to make CV in your mobile exactly the same as the PC version!
  1. Download Google Chrome from your respective app store.
  2. Open the app and go to [animevice]
  3. Log in your [AV] account
  4. Press the button on the top right and tap "Request Desktop version"
  5. Ta da! Now you can post pics/gifs, use pretty much all the stuff on the pc version and use it on your phone.
And huge thanks to @human_rocket for making a comment about this in another thread and showing me this trick. This thread couldn't be possible without you. :D
PS: I'm not sure if there is a thread like this already so I apologize if there is.
PS: I also apologize if the topic's title is grammatically incorrect, had to shorten the title to post this.

General Discussion » Most evil/psychotic "hero" in Anime/Manga (Read post)

@AdamantSky said:

I'm asking for narratives that ACT like their characters are supposed to be legit heroes, but they act more like false heroes. Basically, the narrative is broken and excuses the characters actions when it really shouldn't.

I don't it necessarily means the narrative is broken. That could just be the perspective the writers chose to use and the entire point is for the viewer to notice this and start to take umbrage with the hero's actions.

@MarioRedfield said:

Isn't Light Yagami that way? Even L did some bad stuff.

I feel like Light is not presented as a "hero" after like one or two episodes though. He is the protagonist and L is the antagonist but L is the hero and and Light is the villain.

Naruto » NARUTO 692 (REVIEW)

@katmic: I go back to the days when he was all about teamwork, they show him training with Orochimaru and refusing to kill people, then he attacks Killer Bee and is looking out for his new teammates during the fights, raids the Kage summit and is still looking out for his teammates... then he fights Danzo and he's impaling Karin like "I don't care about my teammates!" and then challenging Team 7 to a fight for like no real reason. That was like, huh?

So ok, he's changed. He's out to attack Konoha. Then the war arc is happens and now he wants to save and protect everyone and goes back to being how he always was pretty much over some story about people being friends (as if this is the first time he's heard the concept of friendship). That was a quick personality 180°.

Now he's back to being crazy murder Sasuke and everybody must die.

There's never any subtlety or progression to his changes. It's always instant 180°.

Dragon Ball » How come gohan is ssj in boG?

I don't get it. Gohan could go SSJ since he was a little kid. Why would he not be able to go SSJ in a movie that takes place after that?

Naruto » NARUTO 692 (REVIEW)

They write Sasuke in such a flip-floppy way to me. He goes off and on to a berserker barrage that only seems in character if you take into fact how all over the place he's written. Anyways, I just hope the fight is cool and that entirety of it is well-animated.

Episode 10

  • How did Kirito know Death Gun will pick the horse vehicle and not the buggy?

He's from SAO, a medieval fantasy game. When Kirito transferred over so did some of his skills. I could see a SAO player opting for a horse if for no reason other than already having been used to it.

I thought it was an interesting cultural thing though Sinon got teased as a kid because she stopped a robbery by shooting the robber. In the US she'd be rightfully seen as a hero and kids would think that was kinda cool.

General Discussion » Is a character being a Badass really important for a story?

I like them but they aren't necessary for most genres. Also, it's only cool to me if it's not combined with hot-bloodedness. The two cancel out as imo a hot-blooded character can only be bad and ass, the opposite of badass.

Just Anime » Anime you wish to see a remake of?

@Whats_out_the_bag: But Kai is just DBZ without filler. To me, a person who doesn't like it is a person that just doesn't like the stories and/or characters of DBZ. A remake wouldn't fix those issues.

Just Anime » Anime you wish to see a remake of?

I don't really want any remakes. Most of the stuff I saw was done well enough visually and even for stuff that wasn't, I'd rather see something different than a remake of the same story all over again.

@BraidyBunch said:

Dragon Ball Z, because the animation for Rock Lee and Might Guy's action sequences are how Super Saiyans should looks like in battle.

Dragon Ball Z already has good animation though.

@takashichea: I'm only at like episode 6. This bad guy seems just as shallow and one dimensional though. He doesn't even have a motive yet other seeming like he kills for fun. The main SAO guy probably had some "deeper" but dumber reason and I thought the creepy rapey dude's reasoning (sexual attraction gone awry) made sense at least.

Off-Topic » Do you bilive in bad Omen and superstitions ?

I don't believe in superstitions but I believe in bad omens. The bad omens I'd believe in are more like red flags, bad signs, and following your instincts though.

I finally got around to starting this early this morning. It's everything I was hoping it wouldn't be and everything I hoped it would be. Yet again we're in a world where gaming gets real (what I hoped it wouldn't be) but it's a decent enough story with likable characters, a kinda cool baddie, and some nice action scenes.

Off-Topic » Anime themed wedding gifts

I got this for a friend who is getting married in about three weeks. I could have gone with a pre-made engraving that read, "To your steps down the aisle and beyond," but I thought that was kinda lame for who he was and how we are. I sprung this one him today and things went well. His fiancee laughed because he walks around the house saying stuff like "chidori" when he opens a door or for some other random silly reason. Just thought I 'd share it.
