Well to be fair I'm normally not one to scream "omg it sucked too much please redo it lololol" like some of those random anime blog trolls. But I personally think StrikerS should have been a S4 or even S5 and a series with an earlier timeline should be made first.

It would probably have been better. Though perhaps a change in management internally in 7arcs and stuff prompted the lousy production for the TV version of StrikerS. Though that's probably a little too far-fetched and maybe 7arcs just decided that they didn't wanna spend too much money but just milk as much as they can through merchandising.

We'll never know.

The analogy is a little overused. Its like people saying they want to see what's on the other side of the moon really, and get disappointed when they find it has more 'scars' than the one we always get to see from Earth (through a telescope that is).

Well you could use the different versions of her voice. Just make sure Katrina doesn't go ~desu anytime soon. Oh wait! She could imitate Rein and psycho Hayate! Wow that would be fun! *spies Aaron charging at top speed* Whoops gotta run!

In the end, after meeting real people online and having a common interest, having common complaints, having arguments, letting creativity flow, getting to read other people's works. I say it's all worth it. Besides, even if it's just fanfiction, I can still give the characters I like proper care and development, right?
I complaint about StrikerS to some real life friends. I think there was once me and PF were discussing about it while on an outing somewhere. I don't really know many people who like the mahou shoujo genre though, so its hard to find people around me to talk about it.

Anyway, glad to see you guys are still around.

Why don't one of you just cheat and say that Katrina or Tesla is using the same way of talking, just different volumes/deepness/intonations bla bla.

Mandy from Grim Tales, originally from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. Kinda like a doujin for a famous Cartoon on Cartoon Network. Or was it Nickelodeon? The link is here. There's also some wikipedia info here. However, fact is Grim Tales has been suspended indefinitely, and the artist is now actually working on another comic.

Surprised to see that really. I completely forgotten about Grim Tales after it was suspended in favour of Sugar Bits. Heck, PPGD ain't finished yet either. But I can't really complain I suppose, the author is probably really busy. (Or is he? )

I might actually start playing WoW in 1 or 2 months. I've got this itch to try it out since most people I talk to (who have played it) say good things about it. Though the common problem seems to be that if you do get to like it, it becomes addictive (dangerous for me).

So how many of you guys here play the US servers? Which one?

Well having the ability to make the coated bullet doesn't indicate skill in making it, nor power in making a lot of it. But if you ask me, I've always thought that Teana is too harsh on herself. I personally think she's quite intelligent, so what if she doesn't have raw power like the others? Her brains more than make up for it.

-------------------
All of us just eased back into the routine of backlog breaking and didn't really realize it. Really, the OC thread is back up and running. So now we can all look forward to breaking the 20k post wall!

Well back to work!

ooo my first page claim! I think...no big deal though. Running along now.

EGAD! IT'S MR. OLD MUSCLES!!!

Lionel was a completely original OC grunt leader attached to Riot 6 by orders of le General to keep an eye on Hayate, but he is soon won over by Hayate's ideals and team.

But... If you could enlightening me which Lionel are you talking about (do you really mean the above commander? ), I could accomodate. So far, the only old man to appear is Charlie, one of the new Cleric-knights spawned from Forsaken crack.

O'Neil figures he can keep it hidden from her forever...

Though if we follow TK's crack idea, which had Jack O'Neil and Lindy reemerging into the springtime of their love.... <.<

Hmmm... I'll talk it over with Kagerou and get some input from TK. From what I recall of canon O'Neil, he's not much of a sharer type...

Still, it has potential... though Mandy's leadership style would definately rankle the Assault Platoon.

Quick question: has Mandy ever been in combat?
Well, yeah, you don't become an admiral in an active Navy without your fare share of combat. It's her preffered tactics (effeciency over humanity) that often raised questions, but efficiency (and a whole lot of arguable politics) got her through.

If you mean scenarios, though, I just finished her profile yesterday! Cut me some slack at least.

I have a habit of picking up slow updatimg webcomics (Dragon-Mango, Paradox Lost, Gone with the Blastwave, Bleedman's comics). I suppose the slow-to-update thing reminds me of myself. Updates on Grim Tales started again sometime in September, though they've been slow.

Ah, Return of the Jedi. Second best Star Wars movie in my opinion. Empire Striker Back lacked something to really catch me (bar the legendary 'I'm your father' moment). Too much white I guess.

So far, for this winter season, I like the songs from H2O, as well as the new ending theme from D.Gray-man

Chest size is a questionable reasoning to use, as we've seen flat-chested characters before. However, the style of Hamaji's hair and her physical size often has bigger chest. Although... that last picture did show something as oposed to nothing, which makes me hesitate (take Jun, for example, who has zip when putting on a bathing suit). Still questionable. Hamaji has the right personallity for a trap, but I'll gather more evidence before jumping to conclusions.

Well, you could always kill 2 birds with one stone and have Shamsel as one of the escorts for your Lost Logia book
Again again.

I think you might be mistaken here. The Grimoire never was under TSAB custody and was stolen by the Prize shortly after its discovery so I really can't see how Shamsel can be one of its escorts. Workable idea to involve him, though that would mean pulling the Rouges in as well. I'm not too sure about that.

It's Aim for the Top! (Gunbuster), which was one of Gainax's earliest works and put them on the road to success (there was also the Daicon III and IV openings). The series is basically the embodiment of what the company was founded by: sci-fi goodness and geek-dom (they even have full-blown science lessons at the end of each OVA episode). Plus all you fan-service lovers can thank this series for being the first to introduce the Gainax Bounce. If you like hot-blood, giant robots (they used freakin' JUPITER as a battery for one ), and sci-fi....watch it NOW!!! DVD's are available!!!



I had a feeling you are a Gainax fan and this pretty much proves it. Looks pretty good overall and I see lots of scenes that are probably the refs for certain GL scenes.

Pray hard that it doesn't come to that then. And pray harder for it to end faster once that happens.

Spoilers? Source nao!
Nothing big. It's just two of the threads in the CG forum.

Link

First post has a summary of all the confirmed spoilers for S2 and is pretty much the twin of the spoilers and speculation thread so be warned.

Quote:
Watched episode 12 yesterday night, was pleased with the overall happy ending. Now that the roller coaster ride of ef (I just found out it meant ever forever, how slow of me ) I need more of the same kind!
It was pretty good ride though not of the rollercoaster kind for me. Excellent story and art. Of course, the drama. Oh, not forgetting the clouds. Hands down the most beautiful clouds I have seen in anime.

Quote:
Erm, nope. I definitely recall seeing it on C.C's forehead and also in the ruins where they hijacked the Gawain.
Well only the symbols of the ruins has any semblance to the more decorated symbol on her clothes but I'll drop it here anyway.

Quote:
Well to be fair I'm normally not one to scream "omg it sucked too much please redo it lololol" like some of those random anime blog trolls. But I personally think StrikerS should have been a S4 or even S5 and a series with an earlier timeline should be made first.

It would probably have been better. Though perhaps a change in management internally in 7arcs and stuff prompted the lousy production for the TV version of StrikerS. Though that's probably a little too far-fetched and maybe 7arcs just decided that they didn't wanna spend too much money but just milk as much as they can through merchandising.

We'll never know.
Well the point of StrikerS being a later season is pretty valid with all the developments in it and Nanoha's injury by the end. It probably would have turned out much better this way too.

And it seems the trend of milking out a popular series seems to have hit anime production studios in Japan as well with recent examples. Guess that's a pretty bad turn for things.

Then again most of us have gone AU anyway.
A fair number but it's alright since it's not as if the characters or story was established as a in-canon but gone pure AU after that.

Quote:
Which I find quite surprising. Though fact is just a few months ago it was the other way around.
Well only taking into account most of the OCs are males to balance out the lack of them in canon.

Quote:
The analogy is a little overused. Its like people saying they want to see what's on the other side of the moon really, and get disappointed when they find it has more 'scars' than the one we always get to see from Earth (through a telescope that is).
An all time favorite analogy of mine but I'll spare the thread from my usual nonsense and just say people tend to be like that.

Well seeing her in casuals, Chinese clothes (once), and school uniform was hot too.

Drunk Nanoha might just be less dense than her normally sharp self.

I was thinking Almaria, but I don't think psychology attacks really work well on Aurion.
The number one psychologist in the OC probably has no qualms about attacking a exact copy of Almaria right now.

You know, we should do a Sai-OC some day. Though it'll probably be too tedious a project to do.
Yup.

Hey like everything else it can be overrated. Its really up to how one makes of it.
Not sure if it's the exact line but Forrest Gump has something to say about this.

"My mama used to say life is like a box of chocolates. Never know what you are going to get."

Quote:
Well you could use the different versions of her voice. Just make sure Katrina doesn't go ~desu anytime soon. Oh wait! She could imitate Rein and psycho Hayate! Wow that would be fun! *spies Aaron charging at top speed* Whoops gotta run!
Katrina can copy mannerisms given enough info. And wow, Katrina going ~desu for her usual manner makes for a pretty weird and cool computation.

Quote:
Why don't one of you just cheat and say that Katrina or Tesla is using the same way of talking, just different volumes/deepness/intonations bla bla.
Subtle differences can work but I think we are both looking for the relaxed but arresting manner C.C.'s voice can be so anything goes.

I think it was mentioned in of the pieces during the Cradle period that she did get a rank boost but it wasn't reflected in her current profile. I know Koji and Maren had one during BreakerS as well.

Nicely done character integration into canon events and people again. Like the finer points of her personality and traits, certainly gives the not to be trifled with initial impression along with her history. I'll say her being a Captain after 6 years might be abit too fast given the number of events she would have to go through. Her rise to an admiral might not be at the youngest age but her speed at ten years certainly rivals Chrono's. Goes give her extra prestige in getting the things she wants I suppose.

S-skyfall in the OC thread?!

USO DA!!!



Welcome, Skyfall. You should try hanging out more often. Who knows, we might get the very first OC made by a mod.

Oh, and Tk? That's just how he is. The trick is just not to take his sharp words too personally and read thru his intent. But I guess it gets different with different people...

On another note, I've been working quite hard on the reconstruction of my characters. This time I will start posting the complete profiles first, since my first attempt, in which I tried to introduce my characters through scenarios, failed quite hard. And dont expect quick profiles...these will be massive...

Anyway, glad to see you guys are still around.
Welcome back, Erio! Good luck with backlog breaking. I'm still stuck here until weekends before I can tackle the holiday backlog properly.

Well, considering the type of Yukana tone your both gunning for, it is indeed complicated. If you'd look a bit...

Hayate = Kana Ueda
Sophia = Kana Ueda

Aurion = Takehito Koyasu
Isdera = Takehito Koyasu
Kaempfer = Takehito Koyasu

Saga = Hoshi Shouichiro
Hikki = Hoshi Shouichiro

Grandis = Hikaru Midorikawa
Franz = Hikaru Midorikawa
Takamachi Kyouya = Hikaru Midorikawa

Widuri/Halcyon = Rie Tanaka
Reiji's OC that's not revealed yet = Rie Tanaka

Tesla = Yukana
Rein = Yukana
Lucino = Yukana



Quote:
Looks like you are going to have some high expectations to keep to then.
Yeah...

Quote:
Yup that's approved. Though I'll say I have made plans to include Gen as part of the Prize now so that's something to consider on Aurion's end, having a contact within a organization that the TSAB is searching for and which operations undermine and threaten their work.
No worries. Aurion isn't exactly fond of following TSAB regulations by the word.

Quote:
Tesla's moving fast to becoming a popular figure here like her counterpart it seems. Keroko's got a knack for such things.
Quoted for truth.

The older they are, the less likely that they'll be eager to be sent out on death-defying missions of the non-elite-unit sort; younger people tend to have a greater sense of their own invincibility compared to more experienced ones.

-

As I mentioned before (back in Part 1), Part 2 is full of talking. There's not much banter in this one either, so it's like one of those boring exposition episodes in StrikerS.

Believe me when I say that I already cut down a lot of extra talking and background explanations. I like to write about characters just talking to each other, because I suck so very much at action sequences.

Spoiler for Lyrical Melancholy Chapter 1 Part 2:
A lot of talking done very well! The relaxed atmosphere in the piece allows one to see the attitudes of each character clearly. Nice work! Rancer sure knows how to use words at these circumstances.

But uh... As the spell creator I should know this right?
*Thinks*

I'd have to go off and venture that you couldn't do something like that. Until a spell is used to activate them they are, well let's say inert. They pass through things without nothing happening... And if they are passing through a object they aren't 'stable' enough to be 'cast'.

Something like that
Since that brings up a good point... Since some of the spells in mind make a Dying Soul go BOOOOOOOM. Which going BOOOOOM inside someone's chest cavity sounds a little unfair...
Although Rune's spells are more geared to fighting Varistan soldiers then other mages really. That and getting in really close since Varistans use guns and stuff
Good. That quells my initial apprehension.

Like Tormenk said, Gen is one of Aurion's outlaw contacts. Aurion calls him Ealin-sempai at times for annoyance.

About Mandy, she'd most likely view Aurion as an annoyingly smart but absolutely useful pawn. Dealings with the outside, Aurion can help. Devices, check. Usefulness in additional negotiations, there.

In Aurion's side, he'd be mostly impartial and just be Lloyd-like (from Code Geass) to her. And not being on the receiving end of a very influential admiral's paper-shredder is a big boon.

Even if you clone her, the absence of the 'connection' will instantly tell him about the fake. That cannot be replicated in any whatsoever way.

Besides, an illusionist like him should know the fake from the original easily.

Bleh. Makes me want Aurion to know of Katrina's existence like he does of Saga and Co. >.>

Yes. Without even so much batting an eyelash. Of course, a reason to attack is needed.

But, he's still human. I'd say he won't like it. He'll be quite annoyed. And getting him annoyed is not good.

You can pretty much only rattle him with indisputable live evidence. He'll get a real shock in finding out Grandis is alive in GenerationS. And of course, Hayate's kidnapping would shake him even worse.

Ealin-sempei? The old grouchbag isn't going to be happy about this. I'll be going through Aurion's profile again soon to see if there are any breaks for them to meet and think up possible scenarios. Interesting side project for now.

Aurion is Lloyd-like from time to time come to think of it, aggravating those around them for their amusement.

Reasons why I think so too. Aurion's not going to learn about Katrina's existence for a long time if I can help it though why the interest?

So far Katrina's earliest planned meeting with any OC is Jeno.

Heh just as expected.

Aaron might want to check out the Image thread. Some new Hayate and Rein pics that I'm sure it's to your liking.

I play on a US West Coast PvP server. Yes, it CAN be addictive, but then again almost anything can be addictive . Just depends on your self control

It's a pitty that Keroko can't join any of the post-Cradle stories, but I'm not going to alter this.

If a story is set after the final episode of StrikerS (as in, after RF6 is disbanded) then Keroko is available again.

Fun fact, kids who don't know: Anno directed the last episode of Gunbuster, which in hindsight was probably a clue into his mental stability (I know I'm not the only one who generally considers the last ep. of Gunbuster to be horribly depressing compared to the rest of it).

But most anything by Gainax is awesome, except for a few productions.

O'Neil figures he can keep it hidden from her forever...

Though if we follow TK's crack idea, which had Jack O'Neil and Lindy reemerging into the springtime of their love.... <.<

Hmmm... I'll talk it over with Kagerou and get some input from TK. From what I recall of canon O'Neil, he's not much of a sharer type...

Still, it has potential... though Mandy's leadership style would definately rankle the Assault Platoon.

Quick question: has Mandy ever been in combat?
...I guess it'd be a copout if I said it's up to you, Goose . If I can get ahold of ya on MSNM we'll talk about it.

It's also giving me an idea for a "Creation Theory" for the Nanoverse galaxy; Proteans, Ancients, Forerunners, you know, it's all starting to look the same.

Purposely done. While I can play with the years a tad, I wanted to show just how ruthless she can be in the pursuit of ranks. She raced through the ranks at almost the exact speed Chrono did, but unlike Chrono she did not have personal instructors (elite ones at that), the elite-mage treatment, nor the 'my mommy is an admiral' advantage. Mandy clawed her way to the top through a combination of above-average magical talents, ruthless efficiency, extorsion and brutal politics.

That sounds interesting. Although Mandy would hardly view Aurion as 'annoyingly smart' smart pawns are prefered to idiot pawns, they get things done better and more efficiently. Like I said, she wants obiedience, not loyalty. As long as you do what she says, everything is fine. The fact that Aurion knows or can find out anything she is doing or has planned is none of her concern as long as he keeps his mouth shut about it.

A bit short, and lacking in detail. Just what are these devices? How powefull are they? Why would they make customization obsolete? And most importantly, how are the Cyborgs involved?

Points like these would help lesh out the devices.

It's also giving me an idea for a "Creation Theory" for the Nanoverse galaxy; Proteans, Ancients, Forerunners, you know, it's all starting to look the same.
I know, Mass Effect just scream 'Lost Logia' no matter how you look at it. I mean... an ancient race that disapeared, leaving thousands of ruins with highly advanced technollogy behind?

Oh, and just and remember, Tesla is already flying the Normandy.

And yet it might end up being public knowledge thanks to their oh-so-kind friends

But most anything by Gainax is awesome, except for a few productions.
Yup, Anno was involved in the project . I like to think it was a way for him to hone is directing skills as they had a very limited budget for the last episode and yet he managed to pull off something memorable and just as epic . It might have been a bit depressing, but I know I practically cried when I saw the very end.

Oh, and if I remember correctly Gunbuster unofficially holds the record for most kills by a single mech.

Does this mean I need to find Shamsel a voice actor?

The Wikipedia dumbfounds me. How can the TSAB front line infantry be A rank soldiers!? O_o
They're too puny to be A rank. If that is A rank Rune is screwed at B+ and No.47 is even worse at C.

I'm just... Ignoring that
