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.

I finally got around to watching some Persona 4 and I love it to death. I have a dilemma now, though. I've never gotten further than recruiting Rise. I really like the game, but I keep basically drowning in all the choices (who to date, what stats to focus on, time limited events, etc).
Now I have to decide if I want to spoil myself and watch the anime past where I left off, or if I want to hold back and try to finally finish the game.

Anyway, about that anime. One thing that kept me from watching it for a long while was the protagonist's name. I'd gotten used to naming mine after the manga's Seta Souji, so a new one being introduced kind of irked me. I got over it quick once I started the first episode, though. Even with dialogue he feels really close to the game's version (which is to say: Awesome)
I love that they got the main cast back and kept the music straight from the game, though I don't like the new opening song(s). The original is damn catchy, and the others are just sort of there. Bleh.
The changes to the story and battling are pretty well done. I was expecting to go in picking it apart, but I like what they've done for the sake of pacing and action.

I have a few more episodes before I catch up with the game, then I'll have to decide to either keep going or break out the game and try to go at it without annoying myself to death with a faq again.
And if I decide to play, THEN I'll have to decide if I want to continue where I left off or restart so I can use the anime protag's name. icon-ball.gif

Aw come on! I can't be the ONLY Zero no Tsukaima F fan here!

I loved the first season, loved the second season. I will admit the third season was a bit 'too' silly and fanservicy at times.

However season 4 doesn't have that problem. Two episodes in, and the plot has already gone wild! I can't WAIT to see where this goes.

(Also the fanservice seems similar to how it was in the first season. There really hasn't been that much)

It's a secret to everybody

Despite myself, I'm rehooked on Zero. If they can just continue to keep Louise's flaming hellb thing attitude scarce, then it could be quite enjoyable.

I'm really liking Ano Natsu de Matteru. Yeah, it's horribly similiar in ways to Onegai Teacher, but I loved that series, and this one seems fun as well.

Aquarion EVOL looks to be a great show (at least for what it is) judging from the first three episodes. I loved the first series (I just finished it on DVD yesterday), and this may well be better.

Yeah, I figured the girl would already be having some space pirate adventures by now. Compared to Rinne no Lagrannge or Symphogears, very slow. And there's a ton of characters, but most of them are complete blanks so far, so it's not like they're spending all their time with introducing the herd.

Oh well, hopefully it will build up to something awesome.

It's 26 episodes long and following the novel pretty closely.

I'm glad they're taking their time building up the space stuff though.

Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040
Heroic Age
Rideback
Shangri-La
Heroman
Tiger & Bunny
Vandread
Star Driver (heir apparent to Gurren Lagann)
Full Metal Panic (though be advised: S2 ["Fumoffu"] is a pretty big tonal shift from serialized dramatic action-comedy to straight-up episodic slapstick --though it is possible to jump right from S1 to S3, since nothing changes in S2.)

Its a super hero anime from last year that kicked all kinds of butt in story, action and characters.

subs were on hulu I think but I'm not sure.

no DVDs out in the west yet but people do own the rights

It's definitely on Hulu, I just watched the first 3 episodes a few days ago.

From what I saw of it I enjoyed it a lot, it's a super hero show where they're sponsored by companies to basically pay for what ever damages they cause, and the main to keep from being forced to retire has to team up with the newest hero.
