Gaming / Arcade Game List 2008
« on: May 14, 2008, 02:02:17 AM »
It's about a week to Fanime, so I figured I'd attempt a go at making an officialish thread for the question a good chunk of people in here will probably be asking: What arcade games have you got lined up for us?

Naturally, this post will be edited with details as they come out.

Fighting Games

Music/Rhythm Games
  • pop'n music 14 FEVER!

  • ESPgaluda II
  • Mushihimesama Futari

Things in the Universe / The Emergency Party Button
« on: May 08, 2008, 08:34:19 AM »
Another thing in the universe reported via Engadget: the Emergency Party Button.

Jerry, I think we need to install something like this into your house. >3

So, as that last topic was more or less shot down due to the iffiness of having high school kids with some twenty-and-thirty-year-old somethings at the beach (sorry, Chibblz!), I'm making a thread for a different, less restrictive venue, in a different timeslot: July, after Anime Expo. (If you're still up for doing the June beach gathering, though: by all means, keep on posting in that thread!) Anyway, here's the unecessarily-formatted prep post as always:

[ it's not raging waters anymore! ]

(art by range murata oh my god you have no idea how hard it was for me to not use konomi yuzuhara)

Current Agenda
where + when

suggest something
current ideas: monterey, carmel-by-the-sea, santa cruz beach boardwalk

suggest something in july, after anime expo '08

you could be in this list

Preliminary thread for those of you who play pop'n music and love the characters so much that you've decided to cosplay a character from the series. More details will come soon.

Current List

Spiritsnare: Mutsuki (14 CS: Innocent 3)
Lisu: A. Michel (11 CS: Beat Rock 3)
Rokujou: Goku-Sotsu-Kun (14 AC: Enzetsu)

If you're on the list and you need me to modify your info, contact me; if you're interested in joining us, post with the character you're going to cosplay!

-=Current Standings=-

Currently not up-to-date. Block sf-2 shows a win for Rika Furude of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (1372 vs. 1367, +5 advantage).

Saimoe 2007 discussion goes here.

Preliminary Lists/Ranks
Prelim Lists/Ranks Eng ver.

Second Preliminaries - Rankings

Better introductory post to be edited in later. Until then, take a look at the 2006 thread, which basically explains everything anyhow.

I'm already somewhat depressed knowing Fanime's going to fade away in less than 24 hours.

Wax nostalgic about the con here. XD

lol the above pvc is made by kotobukiya

Anyhow, this thread is for posting random PVCs/figures/whatnot that look good and/or are on your purchase/wish list. :3 That way, we can potentially discover stuff that we probably wouldn't have seen whilst searching alone, and fawn over WanFes/Comiket exclusive stuff.

General Anime Chat / Moetan: THE ANIME
« on: April 27, 2007, 07:28:39 AM »
Yes, it's true.

This could be very interesting indeed. XD


Current (Subbed) Episode: 8: March 13th - 3% of Hope

LastElixir mentioned that this wasn't repped enough. And it's true: it hasn't. In addition to that, Chun does editing for the Hidamari project over at Shintani.

And by the way, oh god yoshinoya is hot

Registration / List of Registrants
« on: March 28, 2007, 12:32:45 PM »
Will there be a list of registrants posted up? If so, when will this be posted?

The reason why I ask is because I'd like to verify whether or not the group I signed up with actually got registered. ^^; Thanks.

General Anime Chat / Byousoku 5 Centimeter
« on: February 25, 2007, 08:24:26 PM »

Subs have been released for the first chapter of Makoto Shinkai's latest, Byousoku 5 Centimeter, or 5 Centimeters Per Second.

And it is gooood. A more detailed post will follow later this week.

Gaming / Tourneys on arcade cabs for 2007?
« on: February 16, 2007, 07:06:36 PM »
I think this question hasn't been addressed; if it has, well, my bad.

Anyhow: has whoever we're outsourcing arcades to (OnCampus Entertainment again?) approved the use of their arcade cabinets in tournaments for this year's con?

General Anime Chat / Loli Battle 2007 - Shana Wins!
« on: February 15, 2007, 09:05:17 PM »
Continuing on from the backup boards.

For The Unenlightened: Loli Battle is basically a character popularity contest to determine who's the most loli-icious loli there is in the world of contemporary anime -- that is, dating no later than 2005.

Loli Battle 2007

Shana (Shakugan no Shana) wins the tournament!


Current (Subbed) Episode: Series Complete

Continuing from where we left off on the backup boards.

Because Momo is a journalist and therefore is all kinds of awesome.

General Anime Chat / If you could pick a character to hang out with...
« on: December 19, 2006, 07:50:12 PM »
I've a rather challenging and relatively philosophical set of questions, a little something to think about if you haven't done so already.

Ignoring the language barrier present in most characters, if you could pick any one anime/manga/game character to hang out with,
  • Who would it be,
  • What would you do with that character,
  • ...and why would you choose that character?
  • Optionally, under what circumstances would you meet?
Along the same lines, if you could pick any character to hang out with for merely a day -- which changes quite a lot -- who would it be?

I figured I might as well bring the discussion out into the open, regardless of how late I was. XD This topic has, at least, been made in time for the final block, post-shuffle.

For those who don't know: the Anime Saimoe Tournament 2006 is basically a popularity contest to see which anime girl is the most appealing. Girls are first nominated to be in the tournament; from there, they are shufffled into three-person groups and have people vote on who they like in the group, based on anything they want. Votes because you love a character due to 'supporting contents', or fan-made content canon or otherwise, are encouraged; for example, a vote for Tsuruya because you like Churuya is acceptable...nyoro~n.

Update: The semifinal matches are as follows. Names are given in Japanese order when applicable. Dates are now fixed. :D

Final Round | Saturday, October 28

Suiseiseki (Rozen Maiden Traumend) - 2306
Fate Testarossa (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's) - 2239

Past bracket results can be found here.

Let us begin discussion! Who do you want to see crowned champion? :D Fate. <3 If not, then Yuki. <3

The title says it all: perhaps we can organize one or more Cosplay Capture the Flag games.

I have several ideas concerning this:
  • There are two sides to the convention: a Hilton side and a Mariott side.
  • Both sides have infodesk booths to monitor the flag status, and can thus walkie-talkie the information over to Stage Zero, who can do a play-by-play recap to those passing by/those observing.
  • The pillars of the convention hall can be used as cover, thus making for an exciting game.
  • Optionally, teams can also be themed.
Any suggestions and/or objections? I think it'd be pretty fun.

General Anime Chat / [Discussion] Utawarerumono
« on: April 13, 2006, 09:29:54 PM »
Since it's been a week (and two days) since the first ep got released, I suppose some people have looked into the series. Oh, and since I forgot to make one for Fate (which I'm also horribly behind on XDDD), I suppose I might as well start now with Utawarerumono.

AnimeSuki download page

For those who've played the AVG, please keep spoilers to a minimum.

I thought the first episode was rather slow, but that's to be expected for a 26-episode series. As such, I expect the pacing to remain constant, or at least build up as it passes on.

The animation's fluid, except in certain parts (see: rain at the altar). Voiceacting is pretty awesome, and characters are...well, depends on the character. For example, Eruru's cute, but Nuwangi is a total dick, and I'll have to wait a bit until the protagonist's traits show a bit more.

It's a good start to the series, and I can't wait for episode two (hurry up hurry up hurry up YesY XD). Oh, and as an afterthought, I like the OP enough to rip it to my MP3 player. <3

Take a look at January 10's A+E section. Flip it over to the back.

There's a whole article about anime (leaning *so much* towards shounen -- I dare you guys to find one "recommendation" on that page that isn't), and Fanime is mentioned in the Branham High School Anime Club's activities. The piece, by Sarah Ho, touches upon four popular series -- Naruto, Bleach, FMA, and One Piece -- and, via a sidebar, talks about fansubs and where to get them, along with other anime club stuff.

If anyone can provide an online link to the article, I'd be grateful; if not, I'll be scanning it for your viewing pleasure soon, for those guys who are outside of the reach of the Mercury's home-delivering service.

So, what do you guys think?
