Isn't that a bit cliché?

Possibly, but it's not the sort of cliche which breaks immersion. In the PSP remake of Persona 3, the female main character option has the colour scheme mostly in pink (just as the male main character option is mostly in light blue, as in the PS2 version). The change in colouring is surprisingly effective in changing the mood.

For this case, it's also fine to dial down the... damn, I don't know what the proper term is. The luma? The brightness/darkness of the colours, rather than what colour it is in the first place.

Even if Yuuki could do it efficiently, a dialup connection is a bottleneck for data to pass through between the hundreds of computers. It'll be like trying to drink a lake through a straw.

I imagine Yuuki could do it, using a reality hacking virus thing like the cave cricket. He infects the local network of computers/Playstations and they are all changed/upgraded to process the data he needs effectively and covertly, so that the users don't realize their computers are trying to divide by zero. Using those small .jpgs that actually contains 436 TB haxx data, even a dialup is quick. He could even reality haxx a dialup line into broadband.
Though this isn't going to be something the player needs to know, here's how I envisioned the situation:

Yuuki is running on severely limited processing power, so his ability to realityhack is almost non-existent. He uses the computer that they stole to upload aspects of himself onto local computers, hijacking their processing power in a sort of zombie net/cloud computing effort to restore some semblance of normal processing for himself (though he's still well short of his normal capabilities, due to lag and inefficiency of human computers). This is where most of the first three hours goes.

Having sufficiently restored some of his power, he is then able to realityhack the dialup connection into something far more efficient, which allows the greater transmission of data necessary to perform cross-dimensional communication with the IDTE.

Also...
Spoiler for large images:
I agree.

About the images. While the art is pretty, I didn't reconized Yuuki. I think there is something odd with his eyes.

Ok, I will work on it. But, this include all dialoque boxes or only the narration? And how about the interludes? Standard black?

His is manly enough to this don't be a problem. Also, some fanartist like drawing him with a bandana or headphones(like Ryo Asakura, from Shaman King).

Anyway, you can be sure this kind of thing was already discussed. There is little point discussing it now, as the their basic image is already set more then a year ago.

Anyway, welcome. Both to this thread and to the forum. Please have fun and don't be scared by the madness that is this thread. Remember reading the FAQ.

Hope see you more here.

PS: I wouldn't call Itsuko "cute".

Hmm... I haven't read Shaman King in a long time. Did it continue on the promise of the first few volumes?

Also, I will work on the edits sometime. Probably this weekend. Maybe. Depends on how much work I have to put into getting my data into SPSS.

Seconded. Yuuki looks the most recognizable in that one in my opinion, and it resulted in some of my forgotten fangirlyness awakening from its slumber. Which should be a good sign

Actually, no. It become a crazy tournment, for some reason.

Hmmm, curious, I preffer the short hair. I don't even reconized him when I looked the first imgae. Just understood it was him when I looked the short haird version. I think the 'problem' is in the eye, tough.

But, well, opinions from a Yuuki fangirl should count more then mine. I could use my 'status' as a Yuki fanboy, however.

PP:
After discussing the matter with Danchou, I am pretty much convinced that what buged me in Yuuki is not really his eyes. But his general expression. Danchou said it was proposital, trying to make him look different from Yuki. I tought it was the eyes because it is what more show the expression in a face.

Yuuki's the type to be misunderstood.

It's a shonen manga. All shonen mangas eventually become crazy tournaments.

Say that to One Piece. Heck, say that to Dragon Ball! Of all Shonen Manga, Shaman King is the only one I know that it becomes a crazy tournment and did never come back to what was before. Not saying Shaman King become worse after that, but certanly not what was in the begining.

Didn't Dragonball have three crazy tournaments in the original, and then another three in Z?

Yeah. But but it quickly back to what was before. Also, all tournaments have very little impact for the plot on DBZ. Exept Cell's Games, that weren't tournaments to begin with it. It neve became the tournament.

Shaman King, however, never came back after the beginign of the Shaman Fight, the tournamente continued until the end.

Then again, a fangirl's opinion is always more or less biased. It could have been the glasses that did it for me too

I don't think the Yuuki with short hair was bad (not at all) either. I guess the long hair just matches my general image of the character better. And I happen to like the glasses. So I can't really provide any solid arguments for my opinion

Thumbs up from me, like always.

Yet again awesome, Kaisos. My only comment for now:

No luck. No luck at all!

Isn't this a bit redundant? I mean, I thought they were in the same class, why check twice?
