    Default Anime Week (Jan.23-30): Such misfortune!

    Welcome, to Anime Week Thread! Anime week, by voting was selected as the next week, to be held on January 23-30!

    Hm? What's that I hear you say?

    "Well, gee, Ruki... I'd love to participate but I don't know anything about Anime!"

    No worries! I'll include some information, and if you want help deciding on a character, that's what this thread is for! Or... what's that? You'd like to suggest someone go as your favorite Anime character? This is also a good place for that!

    AVATARISTS! If you have any already made Anime Avatars that you would like to put up for adoption, this may be a good moment to do so! I'll even throw in some I made myself a while ago.

    Information:

    Anime comes in several categories. The most basic are sorted out by target demographic:

    Shonen being possibly the most popular is anime aimed at boys, up to the age of 18, maybe. The supreme king here, of course, is Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball. In more modern times, the Shonen category mostly revolves around "The Big 3": Naruto, Bleach and One Piece. Not all Shonen are "power level" Anime, however. The popular Death Note anime is also a Shonen. Other examples include Pokemon, Digimon, and the ever-popular Fullmetal Alchemist.

    Shojo is Shonen's female counterpart. Unlike Shonen, Shojo usually centers around young female characters. The most popular type of Shojo is the "Magical Girl" genre, stories about "ordinary high school girls" with magical powers. The first one to come to mind is Sailor Moon. Other popular titles include Nanoha, CLAMP's Card Captor Sakura and Magic Knight Rayearth. Aside from the Magical Girls there's also more "mature" Shojo, such as Ouran High School Host Club or Fruits Basket, dealing with (few) more adult topics.

    Seinen is the broadest of them all. Technically aimed at a young adult male audience, it's usually accepted as the "default" for young adults and is popular among females as well. Perhaps the most popular here is Neon Genesis Evangelion, a true ground-breaker, and Cowboy Bebop. Other titles that come to mind here are Chobits, Azumanga Daioh, Elfen Lied, and cannotforget to mention: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

    Finally, Josei is Seinen's female, less broad counterpart. Josei, being aimed at a young adult female audience, is quite rare, but has some very popular titles as well. Some well-known ones are Honey and Clover, Nana, and Paradise Kiss.

    There are other further types of Anime and Manga,based on content rather than target demographic, but most of them are covered by the previous four, barring the Adults-Only (Hentai, 18+) material. I suppose, however, that it is important to mention Mecha.

    Mecha, to put it simply, is Anime about giant robots. Giant Robots and their pilots, specifically. The best-known ones in this case are Gundam, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Code Geass, and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

    If any of these catch your eye for an avatar, you might want to look up the Opening sequences of some of the underlined titles in YouTube. It usually tells you all you need to know.


    Avatars for adoption:
    (If you're an avatarist and made an anime avatar that you might want to put for adoption, here's a good place, I'll add them in. If you want to adopt an avatar, PM the artist, I can only give away the avatars I've made myself.
    If this little adoption center office becomes too big, I'll start linking to the images instead of posting them, but for now I'm posting them as it makes browsing easy.)

    This will be an excellent excuse for me to finally upgrade my avatar to Shichika's final appearance.

    If I had more time/skill/dedication I'd do a Gurren Lagann Sigatar, but alas, I am so lazy. Hopefully someone else will (or has) and I can heap praise on them for managing what I could not.

    If you really need to kick logic to the curb and surpass the impossible, try Simon's 5-pointed version. However, due to the sheer amounts of AWESOMETM contained within said glasses, attempting to store their image permanently in a single 'shoppable image tends to melt whatever server it's stored on with hotblooded manliness, and thus their image must be created anew every time they are to be applied. Also I couldn't find a .png online. Maybe someone should make one

    Some people call it "Drag On" instead of Dragon Ball.

    How many DBZ characters does it take to change a light bulb?

    One, but it takes him 45 episodes.

    Dragonball Z brings back so many memories. Mostly memories of frustration at having to wait a week for more long winded conversations

    Good times.

    Yuki from which anime- Space Battleship Yamato or a different one... You haven't made this remotely clear- and I've watched so much this year that characters are beginning to blur together...

    To clarify my previous request, I would be interested in an avatar of Amuro Ray from Mobile Suit Gundam 0079.

    Hmmm. Maybe I should try stretching my artistic muscles, and actually try my hand at making an anime-style Serpentine... If I, as I expect, fail miserably, anyone else interested in giving it a shot? I sort of have one already, but not quite.
    What was that Blu character someone mentioned to me a couple of years ago?

    Not sure how many of these are still in use, but I believe all of these are based on something animeish:

    Welcome, to Anime Week Thread! Anime week, by voting was selected as the next week, to be held on January 23-30!

    Hm? What's that I hear you say?

    "Well, gee, Ruki... I'd love to participate but I don't know anything about Anime!"

    No worries! I'll include some information, and if you want help deciding on a character, that's what this thread is for! Or... what's that? You'd like to suggest someone go as your favorite Anime character? This is also a good place for that!

    AVATARISTS! If you have any already made Anime Avatars that you would like to put up for adoption, this may be a good moment to do so! I'll even throw in some I made myself a while ago.

    The non-Adult Anime comes in several categories. The most basic are sorted out by target demographic:

    Shonen being possibly the most popular is anime aimed at boys, up to the age of 18, maybe. The supreme king here, of course, is Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball. In more modern times, the Shonen category mostly revolves around "The Big 3": Naruto, Bleach and One Piece. Not all Shonen are "power level" Anime, however. The popular Death Note anime is also a Shonen. Other examples include Pokemon, Digimon, and the ever-popular Fullmetal Alchemist.

    Shojo is Shonen's female counterpart. Unlike Shonen, Shojo usually centers around young female characters. The most popular type of Shojo is the "Magical Girl" genre, stories about "ordinary high school girls" with magical powers. The first one to come to mind is Sailor Moon. Other popular titles include Nanoha, CLAMP's Card Captor Sakura and Magic Knight Rayearth. Aside from the Magical Girls there's also more "mature" Shojo, such as Ouran High School Host Club or Fruits Basket, dealing with (few) more adult topics.

    Seinen is the broadest of them all. Technically aimed at a young adult male audience, it's usually accepted as the "default" for young adults and is popular among females as well. Perhaps the most popular here is Neon Genesis Evangelion, a true ground-breaker, and Cowboy Bebop. Other titles that come to mind here are Chobits, Azumanga Daioh, Elfen Lied, and cannotforget to mention: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

    Finally, Josei is Seinen's female, less broad counterpart. Josei, being aimed at a young adult female audience, is quite rare, but has some very popular titles as well. Some well-known ones are Honey and Clover, Nana, and Paradise Kiss.

    There are other further types of Anime and Manga,based on content rather than target demographic, but most of them are covered by the previous four, barring the Adult material. I suppose, however, that it is important to mention Mecha.

    Mecha, to put it simply, is Anime about giant robots. Giant Robots and their pilots, specifically. The best-known ones in this case are Gundam, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Code Geass, and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

    If any of these catch your eye for an avatar, you might want to look up the Opening sequences of some of the underlined titles in YouTube. It usually tells you all you need to know.


    Avatars for adoption:
    (If you're an avatarist and made an anime avatar that you might want to put for adoption, here's a good place, I'll add them in. If you want to adopt an avatar, PM the artist, I can only give away the avatars I've made myself.
    If this little adoption center office becomes too big,I'll start linking to the images instead of posting them, but for now I'm posting them as it makes browsing easy.)

    Haruki's avatars:

    Higurashi no naku koro ni Cast, any of them are available.


    Osaka (Kasuga Ayumu) from Azumanga Daioh.


    I really want as many people as possible to participate, and I'll do my best to break the "I can't because I don't know about Anime" barrier. We all should.
