The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2019 - 08:49 AM)

*Dragon Slave*

@  Xellos : (15 January 2019 - 06:22 AM)

I used to use a pic like that as my avatar for years, but that... is a secret.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 02:07 AM)

Is Flatland an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (14 January 2019 - 11:16 PM)

@Xellos Every time I see you post, I picture Xellos' infuriating smug grin and finger waggling with the "sore wa hi*mi*tsu*desu <3"

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

The Last Starfighter is also one of those

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

Astronaut gets shot through a wornhole and ends up on a living starship full of escaped alien prisoners.

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

I realized a few months ago that Farscape is a sci-fi-based Isekai.

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 08:13 PM)

Re:Creators!

@  Xellos : (14 January 2019 - 07:47 PM)

There is also Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, where people regularly get summoned to a fantasy world, then eventually sent back with their accumulated powers (and the main character smuggles the demon lord's daugher by his request, which is a no-no)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 07:23 PM)

We need more inverse isekais, like The Devil is a Part-Timer

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 04:11 PM)

I feel like Tron is pushing it but I can't actually come up with an argument to that effect

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

To Arazyr- I don't see why it wouldn't be.

@  Xellos : (14 January 2019 - 02:11 PM)

Just like how TRON and Captain N are early examples of "getting transported into a video game"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2019 - 02:07 PM)

That would explain why it's so common for isekai settings to be blatantly RPG-inspired.

@  Arazyr : (14 January 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Would the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon count as isekai? 8^)

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 12:06 PM)

I am in the exceedingly unpleasant position of knowing what you're talking about

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 12:05 PM)

So I'll just say I can consume the series without endorsing the real-life lie that false rape accusations are common and successful.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 12:04 PM)

I would go on to talk about that, but alas, that would spoil significant future story details about the accuser.

@  B-Fox : (14 January 2019 - 12:03 PM)

Shield Hero dared to have a male character falsely accused of rape, right?

@  B-Fox : (14 January 2019 - 12:02 PM)

At least now people will stop shitting on slice-of-life shows....

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 12:01 PM)

listen just because it has shield in its name does not mean you need to ally with it

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 12:01 PM)

oh good lord

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 12:00 PM)

In fact, the Shield Hero series does not portray slavery as a good thing nor keep the initial slave characters down for the count.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 12:00 PM)

If you're referring to The Rising of the Shield Hero, the backlash from some Western fans is misaimed, IMO.

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 11:59 AM)

I wish I was more surprised that "slavery apologetics" is a thing. Still disgusted.

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 11:53 AM)

But surely we all know the best isekai is Captain N.

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 11:49 AM)

This morning I saw one of my friends express disbelief at having an opportunity to say "yet another slavery apologist isekai"

@  Lancer : (14 January 2019 - 11:21 AM)

Although recently they explicably acquire a harem by purchasing them as slaves, which makes it that much worse

@  Lancer : (14 January 2019 - 11:21 AM)

I think what people hate is the modern trend of isekai taking place in generic-ass fantasy settings with bland, oft-overpowered male protagonists that inexplicably acquire a harem.

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Does Kingdom Hearts count? On the one hand it's a serial world hopping adventure, on the other hand all the worlds are contained within the same overworld that the characters have always been in, just unaware of.

Hey all. We've started an official Discord server for the Allspark, and after selectively circulating some invites to shake things out, we're now going fully live. The invite link is here: 

 

https://discordapp.com/invite/9esErqN

 

If you're not familiar with Discord, it's a live chat system often used for gaming chats, most similar to Slack, or more distantly similar to Skype and Google Hangouts, which are another step over from modern IRC systems like Riot. It's not very much like old-school IRC at all, given the persistent log, image embedding, text formatting, support for voice and video, *droning continues*

 

If you're not familiar with any of those things, Discord is a live chat client where we can argue about stuff at the speed of type and Enter. We've been having quite a bit of fun doing that the past few days and would love to have anyone join who's interested. 

 

You can join using the Discord web client without even creating a permanent account, although creating one will give you options like setting an avatar and keeping access to servers you join without an invite. Installing the desktop or mobile client (which works on everything, we've checked) gets you desktop notifications and the whole biscuit. 

 

We currently only have one discussion channel open, but will open more as needed in the future for topics as they become recurring. Current discussion is on health and safety standards regulation in Ohio.

 

Come play!


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Naw, that's the Mayhem server. If you're fun we* might invite you.

 

We**'d like to note that the Allspark Rules and Guidelines apply to the official Allspark server. That means no personal attacks, nudes and lewds, and all the usual. We do watch and moderate the conversation but please feel free to pop one of us a direct message if you feel there's a problem. 

 

Some super-random Discord basics: 

 

• Discord uses markdown for text formatting. It's a standard set of tokens used in a lot of places that gets you things like *italics*, **bold text**, ~~strikethrough~~ and so on, though not colors. = ] You can see the official guide for more details. 

 

• You can embed images or attach files simply by dragging and dropping them into the chat. Image URLs and YouTube videos will automatically embed the content in the message.

 

• You can edit your messages, either by right-click, or by the up arrow if it's the last thing you typed. This can be very handy.

 

• Discord is a bit emoji-crazy, a perk of which is emoji reactions to others' messages. Right-clicking a message will allow you to pin an emoji reaction to it. Kinda handy in the way that a "like" is.

 

• A lot of personalization and configuration magic happens in your user settings menu, which you'll find in the cog icon at the lower left of the screen near your username. Points of interest are the My Account settings, where you can set your display name and avatar, and the Notifications settings, where you can control ... notifications. But there's a lot of stuff to tweak and finagle in there if needed. 

 

• Notifications can be a bit confusing and overwhelming, but they're something you can set both app-wide and per-server, and something you'll probably want to play with to suit your taste. Personally, I have notification sounds turned off, and mobile notifications turned off for all the major servers I'm a part of, with the result that I get a beep on my phone or tablet if I get a direct message and am not on my computer at the time, but not every three seconds when there's activity ... yeah. Play with it to suit your taste. You can find your notification settings for individual servers in the menu next to the server's name at the upper left, and your universal notification settings in your own user settings menu.

Yeah, sorry about that. I got antsy about the name since just plain old allspark is taken (For now)

 

I had it as allspark.tv but that's more oriented towards the youtube channel and I wanted it to be more about the community but that seems like allspark.community might be too long (Though it might change again). Right now it's set to allspark.forums so we'll just see how it goes. 

 

On a personal level, I'm not really a huge fan of facebook, but I can't shake my fist and yell at clouds about it because our community overall matters to me more than the software being used to experience it. 

 

And the fact that so many people there now are long time forum members that haven't been around to the actual forum in ages, I think we did a good thing. I don't like splitting things up per se, but I do think facebook is just something 99% of people use now and it's good to diversify to a point.

 

Plus, it officially replaces the temp spark as a place for posts discussions (with discord still being there for live chat stuff, which has also gained a lot of users).
