Sometimes, you wonder if the universe is really a giant hamster.
@Jason Maybe that was more meant to be a warning that it was not dubbed? (There isn't even subs for it!)
It looks like a lot of it can be easily interpreted from what's happening then from what's being said though.
I've seen that before, it's really cool. =)
(Maybe not that one specifically, but I've seen tons of things like it)
I can hardly see the actual Defensive Matrix on them. xD
I feel like spammin' you with - Youtube.com
This is probably my favorite recent Cartoon Network show. It's so good. =)
I'm not quite sure what's being asked here ...
EDIT: Wait, the other person there is McNeil. Well, it's Oxana in action at least!
You are very scary. Quite scary indeed.
Okay, anyone who wants to continue this please take it to PM. I've made my points and everyone else has made theirs.
The main reason I started this discussion is because I think that definition of Anime that you all use is far too narrow. But to be honest it will probably change within the next generation or two anyway due to Anime itself becoming exponentially more mainstream as time goes on.
I am willing to make a compromise:
Everything that I don't think is a Cartoon, but everyone else won't consider "Anime" I will call Animation instead of a Cartoon.
What will fall under this category,
Somethings I already considered "Animation" instead of "Cartoon" is things like Justice League and Batman: Beyond. (Did not really consider these Anime in the first place though, as they do things differently then Anime does)
Things like that.
The reason I don't consider them a cartoon is because they take themselves a bit too seriously then an average cartoon. They borrow an Anime-style, with more realism and not as vibrant colors as cartoons.
Good. Very good. ;)
His arms should stretch and grow and bend around more for the full Luffy effect. =p
Look at the silos here:
The silos in that image are at a much different angle on the Y.
The silos here look like they're almost taken from the top-down compared to that image.
The TS Silo looks like it's at an odd angle...
Wait, what? Which episode? Are you sure this happens every time?
I never noticed it. xD
AI ignores prerequisites for the most part. If they are told to build something, they will build it regardless of the requirements.
So, I think what you could do, is give them "AI versions" of things, and give those things "Build Limits" (Normally they ignore Build Limits too if their AI script calls for it more then once) where the actual construction of walls, defenses, and certain buildings, is limited to a certain amount.
Keep 'em comin'! ;)
Can't wait for October. =)
AAAGH!! Ya got me!! *Falls over ded*
Actually, I think I should be clear that I'm not fighting on what Anime actually means right now but what I think it should mean.
Maybe that makes things a bit clearer? Idk.
I just don't think it's fair that something can do everything right to be a convincing Anime except being from Japan and because of that one thing, that makes absolutely no difference, it's not.
I argued "Also, saying that Anime isn't an Artstyle because there's "No set-in-stone" method of it is pretty stupid."
And then you reply with the exact argument that I said makes no sense. That is what I mean with you completely ignoring what I said.
However I'm not saying that Anime is an Artstyle because of this. It, again, deserves a lot more credit then that. But it also deserves more credit then just being from Japan.
Wait, WHAT?!!! What lets you do this again?!?!
You should use the C&C1 EVA for Forgotten and the C&C3 Cabal for Cabal. ;D
Anime is extremely important to me. And that is why I am fighting for this, because it deserves more then this meager definition.
Thought of something fun: In the Movie A Bug's Life, in the scene were Flick has the idea to leave the island to find bigger bugs, replace every time Bug is said with Boob. And Bugs with Boobs.
Bonus points goes to anyone who sits through the whole movie and finds funnier scenes for this.
What does this have to do with this image?
"Bigger boobs!! We can go find bigger boobs to come here and fight, and fend off Hopper and his gang!"
So, I want to state as unbiased of an opinion as I can muster and suddenly I'm like, being an attention *****?
You're ******* pathetic if that's what you think opinions are for. Lol.
Also, here's a tip next time you want to be helpful: Don't join a side. It just makes you look like an ******* to the side you're not on. If you don't join either, chances are both will forget about you.
Is that official though? In fact, does any one person own Vocaloid? xD
But that's very cool. Did not know that existed. =)
Okay, one last thing. Sorry 'bout the spam, but:
Okay, Vocaloid is not Anime. I can accept that. What I can't accept is the hypocrisy in that statement, though.
Someone posts an image of Vocaloid and everybodies totally fine. But someone posts say...Avatar, as an example (It's not that much like Anime but it has more similarities then you think), and everybody blows their ******* ****.
At least there's more similarities between Anime and Avatar then Anime and Vocaloid.
Also, I feel like it's better to just follow the ideal that since this is on Moddb, Game-related Anime, or Anime-like Fanart of games, should be top priority as it only makes sense.
I refuse because the "Correct" term is self-entitled ********. "Oh no, it's MY Anime, I don't want it to be from anywhere else!" is basically the attitude here. But as I've said, it is wasted effort here because pretty much everyone here are traditionalist neophobics.
The only reason I actually care about this is because this is highly restricting content here. There's so many things that look, function, act, and progress like Anime, and are even made by Japanese people, but aren't considered Anime because their Country of origin isn't Japan. Which is ******* ********.
But anyway, this is what I'm talking about. Wasted Effort.
Also, n5, way to completely ignore my argument.
Also, saying that Anime isn't an Artstyle because there's "No set-in-stone" method of it is pretty stupid. Cartoons are exactly the same in that regard, they all have VERY different Artystyles but we still know they're all Cartoons.
Many Animes have very different Artstyles, and some not even made in Japan, but we still categorize them as Anime.
I can go very deep into this, but it would probably be wasted effort as no one in this group will probably accept this anyway.
I have one question for you, though: Do you really know Anime? Or do you just watch it?
Sorry, but I just completely disagree. Anime has a much more deeper meaning and explanation then it just being Japanese. And I believe anyone who believes that truly doesn't take much effort into it.
Anime is a lot more then just being from Japan or being made by a Japanese person. It's not the artystle or the genres, but it's the feel that it creates. I for one get a huge surreal and creative tone from Anime. It's a very different feeling from say, Disney Cartoons. Yet they share endless similarities and Anime is highly based off the Disney style hence why the similarities are so striking.
Anime is not Japanese Animation. But it's not an Art Style. But it is instead a Genre all on it's own. But what defines this genre? Well, to me, I feel like what can clearly define it is that Anime is simply a mix-and-match child of virtually every cartooning and animation style that has existed.
(I'm not making this comment a reply because Moddb's comment system is whacky.)
I'm talking about the Blood Pact. What are you talking about? XD
