How about a team of teen heroes ala Gatchaman(Battle Of The Planets over here)? Or maybe even Kinnikuman(Ultimate Muscle over here)......
Both are now on the agenda.

Hmm... I think it would be interesting to have the sort of Lucky Hero (such as Justy Ueki Tylor) who is on everyone's radar for having some sort of luck power, but coming up completely negative on any sort of powers and governments being hesitant to explore much further because they know inquiring too close seems to result in massive expense from equipment breaking down coincidentally, etc, especially since I know that you have the chops to make that sort of character have sufficient pathos.

That is, assuming I didn't already miss your tribute to him.

Ooh, that's interesting. I'll look into it.

So here's the deal. The Freedomverse is kind of lacking in anime and manga influence, which is odd given that it had a character whose high concept was 'anime and manga influence as a supervillain'. (Or maybe not so odd, I suppose, but let's move on.) There was an opportunity to redress this in the East Asia atlas entry but ... well, it was passed up. So I'm going to try and redress it myself, and already have done so.

But what sort of manga and anime influenced characters would you the reader like to see represented in my thread? I am throwing this thread open to suggestions on that front. Suggest the series or even the specific characters you'd like to see Captain Ersatz versions of, and I'll see what I can do to come up with a character or characters like that.

Now, you know that there are going to be a few conditions on that invitation, right?

* No hentai. Goes without saying.
Of course, and between you and me, this is the far more likely result of any such antagonists from such.

* No magical girls. Already got them!
Okay, breaking the rules already but to be fair Card Captor Sakura could be a fun combo for a more magical approach and a pokemon/digimon style character.
And in my defense it was the best rule to break out of the lot ;~)


Hrmm... most of what I watched in Anime is either stuff I've completely forgotten, or doesn't really fit well (Alas poor Kobiyashi's Dragon maid).
As much as I enjoyed Full Metal Panic I imagine there are enough paramilitary groups running around.

Could have some fun with a Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex style group of low street level cops.
Or the Cowboy Bebop concept of bounty hunters hunting down jobber villains.

I suppose there is also room for some kind of Yokai hero/villain too ala Inuyasha or Ushio and Tora...

I kind of thought I'd have more ideas after thinking on it this long but apparently I got nothing ;~)

I am of the opinion that Kanna is weapons grade adorable.
