Anime Week suggestions

Recommended Posts

This is purely tentative, but when we do the Anime Versus Tourney, we're going to do an Anime Week. Now, I still have no idea when we're going to be able to do this, but I'd like some thoughts on what we could do for an Anime Week that could be posted on the mainpage.

For the first day, I'll have an anime primer to kind of introduce people to the genre and tell how it all started and what some of the popular anime vocabulary words mean. That's a definite.

I'm also going to have a new anime music video for you all for another day that week. :OMG:

We'll probably do some reviews of anime shows, too. But what else could we do? I need suggestions.

I'd be down to write about Naruto, it's my favorite series at the moment.

Actually expanding on that, if there was enough interest I think a gorup "favorite anime" column would be a good idea. If not I'll just take the three layers of dust on my proposed Escafllowne review (and Skyre, if you want to try this again, I'm game)

Alright. Here is what we could do:

Monday: Anime Primer

Tuesday: My new anime music video

Wednesday: Dear Friends Review

Thursday: ???

Friday: Group column--"favorite anime series/movie"

I've gotten a lot better at writing things now, so sure I'll try to do the Escaflowne review again.

I had Yoda go ahead and post my latest anime music video on the mainpage. I've been done with it for several weeks and I was sick of waiting. I'm impatient, damn it!

We can come up with something else for that day.

I'll do Goku, Kenshin, D, Ashitaka, and Wolfwood.

One thing though, how much of Goku do you want?

Put as much as you need, but I'd like to limit it to anything/everything before the abomination that is GT.

I need to hold this off for a while. I haven't done my primer yet. I haven't done my Dear Friends concert review. I'm still nowhere close to being done with the fighting tourney profiles. It's just too much to do to be ready even within another two weeks. So, let's just put it on the backburner for a while so I can catch up with everything.

I still need to finish my half of our Batman: TAS column, but I'm almost done with the JLU top 10 moments piece. Hopefully, we can get those out pretty soon. We can hold Anime Week off for a while. No biggie.

I'm not sure how many off hand, but it's a lot.

I just thought of a great idea for an Anime Week article. I'll do a review of all the cool stuff I will do at Anime Weekend Atlanta (which starts on Friday). For example, they are having a "Cowboy Bebop Lounge" in one of the ballrooms at the convention center. Basically, it'll be a dance hall with a 1920's-1950's jazz/bebop ambience (and a bar!). All night (it starts at 11:00pm Saturday) they will play music that inspired the show Cowboy Bebop. Artists like Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Dexter Gordon, Theolonius Monk and more. They encourage people to dress in the old school jazz style. SO...out come my spats, the pinstripe suit, and the feather hat. I'll definitely want to write about that. :yes:

Just got another idea for an article. Anime Clichés! You've seen the grande list of RPG clichés? Well, I'm going to do the same with anime. :evil:

Just noticed this thread, else I would have helped sooner. If they're not taken yet, and it doesn't look like it, I'll take Ed and Scar.

If you want to do Scar, go ahead. We're holding the VS. tourney off for a while, so whenever you get it done is fine.

As James said, the Anime Versus tournament will no longer be a part of Anime Week. Don't worry! We will still run it, but it is the one thing that is holding Anime Week up so we're going to move forward without it.

Rejoice! James and I have spoken, and we're happy to announce that Anime Week will take place next week: Monday, October 03 through Friday, October 07!
