Still prefer MAL overall, but I've been a member of Hummingbird for a small amount of time now and it's pretty cool

Nobuo Uematsu?! If I had money I would back this for his contribution alone. He's my favorite video game composer. He's the person behind (I think) 9 or 10 of the final Fantasy Games. As well as some other JRPGs.

Yup, Nobuo Uematsu is a living legend. A genius. I can only hope he does a large portion of the score.

Anyone else as psyched as I am? Though what I particularly like about this video is the amazing fangirl screaming any time absolutely anything comes on screen.

Some might think I rotated my desk to point it at the window for these summer months. In actuality I just wanted to watch DVDs from my bed.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 30 - Your favourite game stylised as anime [ie. FF, KH, etc.]

 

Bit of a faulty question but ah well. I think the best answer I can give has to be Tales of Symphonia. Because it's like the greatest game ever or something.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 29 - Your favourite antagonist / evil character from an anime.

 

Oooh. Tricky to come up with a definitive answer for this as there are so many good ones. I'll go with these two because they came to me off the top of my head.

 

Kyubei~ (Madoka Magica) What could possibly be evil or sinister about this little fellow?! He's just so cute, he can't possibly have a hidden agenda! But seriously, Kyubei was a great character. Listening to him with his "I just can't understand these human values of yours" whilst he sentences a multitude of girls to hideous fates is enough to send shivers down your spine.

 

Miyakonojou Oudo (Medaka Box Abnormal) This guy's great. If nothing else he just LOOKS the part of a fantastic villain. But on top of that he has a super combination of powers, and literally makes everyone bow to him. Plus his backstory is equal parts tragic and laughable.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 28 - An anime you wish had an official game spin-off.

 

Cardfight Vanguard? I don't know. I could say this about a lot of the anime that I've already mentioned thus far - they'd all make some pretty good games, like maybe an insane Redline racing game.

 

Just because it'd be pretty funky and I'd like to see how it'd work, we clearly want BTOOOM!: the game of the anime of the manga of the game. I like blowing people up, so that'd be cool.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 27 - An anime which you found worse than the manga.

 

Most of them! But that's not to say that the anime are thus not awesome. For this one though I'm going to go with The World God Only Knows.

 

I think the sheer over-the-top-ness of this series doesn't quite transition to the anime as well as one might like. For one thing, not that I dislike Shimono Hiro, Keima's voice just grinds on me a lot of the time. It's absolutely perfect for his normal conversation, one-liners and condescending explanations, but when he goes into high pitched insane mode it makes me sad. Also they seem to feel that they have to reign-in the craziness of the manga a bit for the anime, which I guess could make sense, but if you're going to do that you have to be systematic about it - some great bizarre parts from the manga are cut or diluted, whereas others are just left untouched.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 26 - An anime which you prefer over the manga.

 

This is fairly tricky as whilst I don't read that much manga compared to the amount of anime that I watch, there haven't been many occasions on which I've experienced the manga being the worse of the two. So it's a fairly weak answer, but I think I have to go with OreImo. I think it was a manga retrospective of the anime, and didn't have any new content in whatsoever, and the art was a bit weird. All-in-all the anime was more entertaining.
