Yes, that's right -- I am uninvolved in the anime culture, by and large. I have very little frame of reference, or "hook" by which to be inward-drawn.

Ugh, after being sick for so long, my stamina is worthless.

I got, like, fifty rolling situps. That suuuuuuuuuucks.

My arms are so tired, I can't do push-ups, and I used to be able to at least to 12 pushups and ~65 rolling sit-ups. Dang it.

From my memories of Toonami, you should! It was pretty solid!

I also recommend Record of Lodoss War, and, though NH has had bad experiences, Cowboy Bebop.

Also, Princess Tutu and 08th MS Team, but that's just because I love them, so.


Hate to rain on the parade, as it were, but Cowboy Bebop is one of the reasons I'm not into anime . . . . Perhaps my sensibilities are simply too Western, too . . . something . . . for me to dig it . . . .

Hahaha, been there. XD I liked the movie, though it's been so long that I couldn't tell ya anything about it really. I watched the first episode of the show and decided it wasn't for me.

You're probably aware already, but anime is a massive medium with many different genres contained within it. I tend to like two types of anime: Miyazaki movies made for older kids, and gritty shows like Death Note, Darker than Black, and Psycho Pass. I am currently attempting to ease my wife into Psycho Pass, but I don't think I really have a shot until she gets thru Buffy.

C'est la vie, right?

Just read a ranking of the Dragon Age companions that didn't have Aveline, Merril, or Wynne in the top-5 and I'm befuddled.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I finished watching Cowboy Bebop and recognized it for what it was: A massively-innovative, cutting-edge, stylistic anime when it first came out, now reduced to mediocrity solely through age and emulation: By the time a modern anime watcher finally finds Cowboy Bebop, they've already seen a half-dozen reboots of it done in different styles, more modern, better animated, or whatnot. (I swear Trigun is a massive derivation of Cowboy Bebop, and I loved me some Trigun.)

So I certainly didn't dislike Cowboy Bebop; I just wasn't as "wowed" by it as people who saw it when it first came out...

I am more mainstream with my favorite DA characters, I think. But Merrill is definitely one of my favorites.

hey, if you like firefly, you'll LOVE outlaw star! You'll feel a kinship between the two series. Almost as if one couldn't have been made without the other.

I guess I was fortunate when it comes to Cowboy Bebop - it was one of the first series I saw and really enjoyed it. I've heard many others express the same feelings about the show as NobodysHome. I will admit I've gone back and watched it and had many of the same thoughts as he. It's one of those shows that's good to be your first foray into anime but doesn't seem that awesome if you've watched others.

And I loved Trigun - Vash the Stampede is perhaps my favorite character in all of anime.

Wolf's Rain is another I enjoyed (though I never did get to see the last 2 episodes - I really need to do that).

Witch Hunter Robin is worth a look.

Hellsing and Hellsing Ultimate I recommend. Just a warning for Hellsing - it was originally supposed to be 26 episodes but got cut down to 13.

I believe this was already mentioned but Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood is another good one. I prefer it over the original FMA.

Love's got nothing to do with it. She started watching Buffy all on her own, and has threatened to withold something very important to me if I complain.

My only experience with Dragon Age is Origins, which I am playing currently playing thru, so the only names I recognize on that list are Wynne and Zevran.

Tacticslion wrote:

I got, like, fifty rolling situps. That suuuuuuuuuucks.

My arms are so tired, I can't do push-ups, and I used to be able to at least to 12 pushups and ~65 rolling sit-ups. Dang it.

So, more on this.

Just in case you guys don't know, "rolling sit-ups" are effectively, "Wussy sit-ups" - they're the things you do when you can't do real sit-ups.

1) Sit down, like you were normally going to do sit ups.

2) You put your hands on the floor, slightly behind your rump.

3) You then lay back, supporting yourself with hands and slightly upraised legs.

4) You push yourself to sit up with your hands, using your legs (in the air) for balance.

This may sound hard, but it's really, really not. More exercise than getting out of bed, mostly by technicality and repetition.

As a comparison: I can't do push ups, right now. And even when I could get up to 65 of those, I couldn't manage more than twelve without an embarrassingly long break between them.

Also, my abilities really, really aren't that impressive. I figure that's probably crystal clear, but I read that and kind of thought it looked like I was boasting about what I used to be able to do. NOPE.

My (current) goal? 100 rolling sit-ups and 30 push-ups. I... have a looooong way to go.

(This is the small goal, by the way. The big one is much bigger.)

Things I am grateful for right now: Epsom salt baths and cuddly kitties who curl up with me when I'm feeling crappy. And pain meds. So much thankful for pan meds.

I cleaned the apartment over the last three days to standards of not clean clean, but not a pigsty anymore either, and also took care of the grocery shopping. My whole body is made of pain. And that's with heavy duty pain meds. But hey, I hadn't been well enough to clean in several weeks and nobody else here cleans at all, so I am proud of my accomplishment. (Lynora vs the forces of entropy! I kinda won, but was badly wounded...) ;P

TL, I always had to do modified push-ups because of my shoulder issues, so I learned some good ones to work your way up to real one. Start with wall push-ups. Basically you stand at an angle to the wall and do the push-ups motion. The farther out your feet get, the greater the challenge. Then you can move to counter push-ups (Same idea, just lower angle), and stair push ups, where you eventually work your way closer and closer to a normal push-up. I never made it past wall push-ups myself, but I'm basically falling apart and can't put a lot of stress on any one joint. :)

So, FaWtL, I'd like to make a request of you, and/or present a (hopefully) fun exercise!

Obviously, this is a volunteer-basis kind of thing, but I'd appreciate it if any of you that wanted to made a character or two!

What kind? This one!

Though it's a 3.5 class, presume upgrades to PF skills, and give it any two additional class skills of your choice. Similarly, if a class feature has altered, give them the updated version (though not things that build off of that - so the new rage, for example, but no rage powers). Give it proficiency with any single weapon of your choice as a bonus proficiency. It can be a favored class.

Level five minimum. Mostly use any normal PF creation method.

There is no base class - give yourself 5 ranks each in bluff and disguise, and the Skill Focus feat in any skill you want at all; these are taken from your normal resources (so these are not bonus feats, but use up actual feat slots and skill slots). With this, your character is considered qualified for the class.

You may take other levels, but a total of levels under ten, please. Presume PF classes.

Despite the lore, there, no connection to the School of Broad Horizons. In fact, this is rather strongly Final Fantasy Tactics-based, though, if you've played that game, presuppose the character you make takes place a little more than 400 years later.

Really, this should surprise no one.

Lots and lots of info, if you want to create a character!:
What does this mean for world lore/tech/etc.?

While the glories of the past have not quite been re-acquired, some hints of them have slowly been unearthed. The Glabados church is loosening, and a kind of Renaissance-cum-Industrial Revolution has been happening (and continues to) within their lifetimes. Train-like devices, by way of lightning-charged magicite (lightning charged "magical rock/crystal-like-thing"), has begun making travel more possible. Various low-grade magical devices have slowly become more commonplace, as various forms of magicite have been found and mined, and distributed through trade. Magicite was always known, and used, but relatively hard to come by - either due to general rarity and being difficult to find, or by way of the extreme danger it represents. Recently, breakthroughs in technology have changed this - a large number of different kinds may now be reliably located, while a number of the more dangerous kinds may be reliably approached, and thus mined.

That said, actual magic, like honest-to-goodness "I cast spells." magic is much more rare, and generally considered impossible. The actual pieces of auracite (a particular and rare form of magicite, considered a holy stone) from the FFT story are generally unknown, or believed to be a pure myth or perhaps a point of religious teaching.

The main continent/nation is a place called Ivalice (made of seven regions - Fovoham to the north, Gallione to the west, Lesalia to the middle, Zeltennia to the north-east and Limberry to the south-east, and Lionel to the south, but there are other continents - Romanda and Valendia (both to the north - west and east, respectively), Ordalia (to the east), and Kerwan to the south (see here for some details, but here for a proper description of Romanda's location).

Recently, a large scale... eh, "war" except not really... raged across several countries and continents, apparently sparked by the revelation that a few powerful and noted bloodlines were false lines - pretenders to their thrones. This "Succession Crisis" meant a lot of death, power structures becoming shaken, and social revolution, even within the backdrop of (magi-)technological revolution.

If you want a published RPG setting, think of a combination somewhere between Forgotten Realms (drop the myriads of archmages from active duty) and Eberron (there is no spoon Cyre, or mages).

In any event, you don't really need this information, but it's here for you.

The gist is that you've a vaguely quasi-French named character (or actually French, if you care) who has ties to somewhere in the world of Ivalice and who, through <reasons> (feel free to specify), has recently acquired a lost ability to change their skill set daily, including the ability to cast magic, as desired.

(Prepared casting isn't a thing, but you can go ahead and presume it is when building a character, if you like.)

Regardless of how you make the character, in addition to name and basic stats, I'd appreciate: an alignment, an allegiance (choose a regent or concept to be loyal to - make a name up, or give a minor historical note, or something), a vague morale and/or tactics box (they don't need both, but it'd be cool to have at lest something there), and something about their personality and history (however small) to get a handle on the character. I'll need to know about their relative amounts of bravery and/or faith in the supernatural (note: this is different than the divine) - there are no wrong answers, here. Finally, I need their zodiac/horoscope sign (based on birth date).

They may or may not be making an appearance as an NPC later in a game I may or may not ever run*! Ally? Enemy? Never-see-light-of-game? Who knows!

Other than that: go nuts! If it's Paizo-or-Dreamscarred-or-Alluria published: sure, go for it!

* I'm not being coy, here: I'm being honest.
