    It's a harem animu. A human dude somehow finds himself at a school for monsters and amasses a harem consisting of a bipolar vampire, a virgin succubus, a stalker yukionna, and a pedobait witch.

    Shit is awful. I keep thinking how much cooler it would be if he had to constantly keep up a facade of being a powerful monster while talking Moka's vampire half into letting him take credit for her beatdowns just so the school won't figure out he's human.

    Shugo Chara is the heartwarming story about a young girl who has been infected by some mysterious parasitic creature that lives in her uterus and leeches nutrients out of her blood for purposes that remain unclear. All it seems to do is somehow manufacture what look like eggs of varying sizes; these are usually composed mainly of precious and semi-precious minerals such as gold, silver, diamond, etc. It also appears to be affecting both her natural bodily functions and her brain chemistry in ways that are as yet unclear.

    Man, vampires used to be cool. Back in my day...

    Honestly, though, the Rosario+Vampire one isn't _that_ bad. It's more that the show's a harem show. No idea how the anime works out, but the manga sort of plods along the usual clichés. Like someone else said already, the setting isn't all that bad, it's just that whoever's writing didn't bother to come up with any halfway decent/original plot. Just the usual harem anime plot.

    The real shame here is that I find this shit better than some other harem shows I've seen, like Girls Bravo. I think it may be something about the male lead being just dull rather than downright stupid. And stupid plots. At least I haven't watched this show. I just wasted the time on 4chan instead.

    The anime whizzes pretty much all of the mango's plot. Fortunately, Ruby's intro arc isn't a rejected Captain Planet script anymore and is actually somewhat clever. In addition, shonen rejects like the outcast ayashi, the Aizen ripoff, and similar fags vanish allowing the various girls to turn their craziness up to 11.

    It is just as stupid as the mango, but in different ways.

    Also, Tsukune doesn't get the MARY SUE PUNCH to go with Moka's MARY SUE KICK, and all the COMPLETELY IGNORED FAKE-ASS DRAMA to go along with it vanishes in the transition to the animu.

    Still, the animu's season 2 opening was a superbly animated disco dance number.

    It depends on what scale you're using. Considering what I've read of the manga (up to and including the first male "mary sue"-panch as someone else said) I'd say it's safe to say I ain't touching it anymore. If you compare it to the Girls Bravo anime, it's probably slightly better. There are degrees in hell.

    There are better harem shows. I suspect, anyway. Luckily, I was never really that attracted to the genre - though I did like the original Tenchi Muyo OAV (also, Hand Maid May. Come for the dollsized girl, stay for the awesome guy in the purple suit and the octobot). Also, Urusei Yatsura, but that one's not really harem.

    Why did I like that anime? It takes 13 episodes to do what amounts to a 5-oav-episode plot. Or 7 TV episodes. It was probably the opening. And that psycho vampire with the dogs. And Ciel. Huh.

    Shugo Chara is about the dreams you had as a child of what you wanted to be when you grew up.

    The eggs are from your soul and give birth to a potential that you can become.

    So if you wanted to be a fireman, your egg would hatch open a tiny you that looked like a fireman and floated around you all day. It's personality would be what you have secretly always wanted to be like. An example from the series would be the timid boy leader haveing a passionate world domination king egg.

    The main character of the show has no clue what she wants to be, not even a tiny inkling. So she has many eggs compared to other characters.

    Another large part of the show is attempting to live up to your dreams, which is shown by characters combining with their eggs and gaining powers from it. The timid boy combines with his world domination tyrant egg and gains a confident personality, and a scepter that can perform magical attacks.

    The idea is that you can become anything you want to be when you grow up as long as you never give up your dreams.

    That being said, it's marketed for 9 year olds and /a/ is a bunch of pedos for watching

    There is no Shingetsutan Tsukihime anime. There is only a rather good soundtrack mysteriously released some time after it was not aired, and some weird set of MANFACE fanart of the Tsukihime cast.

    But seriously, the only excellent thing about it was the music - everything else fails miserably when compared to the original.

    When did I say you weren't allowed to like it? I sort of like it myself, to tell the truth.

    All I'm saying is that it fails miserably *when compared* to the original in all aspects barring music, which is excellent.

    I wouldn't call a visual novel a game, but either way, the anime most fails by molesting the story and making some rather fffff-inducing choices in the adaptation.

    Why does she run? And why in the park, rather than the apartment? And what's up with that half-assed SHIKI version, anyway?

    The mango seems quite a bit more well thought out, if we're going to be talking adaptations.

    The primary reason that I watch anime is because there is a seemingly endless quantity of it available for free online, and I'm lazy enough that I enjoy entertainment which takes extremely low effort on my part to get and partake in. I wouldn't claim that most of it is actually good. If I trip over a good storyline once in a while, great, and for the rest of it I doubt I'd have spent those hours on anything better anyway.

    Most of the problem is that American productions look at anime and see 'this is kids stuff'. The REAL shit is hard to find and a hell of a lot more expensive 'cause it's better quality and not very popular in America.

    Basilisk, Bubblegum Crisis 2040, Millenium Actress, Higurashi, all of the darker, plot-filled stuff is very irritating to the American companies because it's not for kids, and has a more limited market.

    I dunno, I find some of these highschool animes to be entertaining. Of course, thing is, storylines don't concern me much. I'm in it more for the characters. I liked Berserk not because "LOL grimdark" nor "Middleageaboo!", nor for the (laughable) plot. It's because I found the cast to be interesting.

    And I happen to also find the cast in many of those "moe" animes interesting, in other ways. They're entertaining, and generally end up bringing a smile to my face (see: Yotsuba)

    That's not the sort of "moe" we're talking though; Azuma's work is generally cute and quirky, which is what gives it its charm. Moe-moe when used derogatively means shit that's cute for the sake of it, without any sort of substance to back it up.

    I have not ever seen a reverse vampire in any form of fiction ever.

    Does she burst into flame in the moonlight?

    I'm probably one of few who have this problem. Blood: The Last Vampire? Awesome. (Wait, there's a live action now? This could be good.)

    Blood+? Started out well enough. But then I found it starting to get really predictable somewhere in the 20ies of episodes. I just dropped it, couldn't motivate myself to watch more of it.

    I have no idea. I do know that she needs someone to drink her blood.

    So, Normal vampire + Reverse Vampire = Perpetual motion machine?

    Anyway, little open question. How do you people prefer your vampires' bloodlust? They need it to survive, and will die if they don't, much like people need to eat; or do they technically not *need* it, but have a horrible addiction that makes them desire it and suffer withdrawal if they don't?

    So how do you like vampires then /tg/?

    I prefer mine loosely based to Bram Stokers Dracula:

    Undead, but not immortal. Basically they age normally, but drinking blood prevents this. Drinking too much blood actually makes them younger as well as heals any and all wounds they have by "reverting the body to it's original state"

    When becoming a vampire, they die. What this means, is that they lose their mortal personality and all memories and are reduced to nothing more then a "ghoul" that acts like a rabid animal with a thirst for blood.
    As time passes, they become more and more cunning until they once again reach human level intelligence (obviously they don't regain their previous personality, they become a completely different percon)

    So basically a fledgling vampire is an frenzied human with a taste for blood, a 50 years old vampire gains sentinence and starts experimenting with their powers and a 200 years old vampire has mastered vampirism and claims a domain of his own, usually a small village and it's surroundings.

    A little bit of column A, a little bit of column B. They use it to power their vampire abilities, but otherwise don't need it.

    I prefer them as oh my god why does everyone on this board focus on "races" instead of characters

    not all vampires should fucking be alike, whether they're monstrous, very human or whatever

    Fantasy is what you make of it, modern or futuristic settings can be just as bad.

    That doesn't make any sense, I never said anything even remotely like that. I am only pointing out that clearly you've only ever played D&D so you think you can only play certain races because that's what you get to do in D&D. Branch out more, try new RPGs you just might like a game that's more than a dungeon crawl.

    Vampires are made out of death and magic.
    They have traits that are defined by the nature of whatever creates them as vampires, be it the manner of their death (suicides being spit out of Hell for being too lame, demons posessing a dying lunatic, that sort of thing) or the nature of the magic. The nature of what animates this group of the living dead defines a broad range of their traits, such as weaknesses, instincts, and drives. A vampire that can only exist because it drinks the blood of humans that wronged it in life, like the suicide vampire, is going to act differently than a vampire animated by a gypsy curse that can get on just fine by drinking the blood of animals.
    People have preferences for what makes their vampires tick.
    Vampires aren't an actual race, they're more like androids, something else made them exist and made them what they are, in some stories they aren't even sentient, in others they are, in none of them are they an actual race that came into existence and reproduces naturally.
    Bitching about people debating various stories of "what makes a vampire" is like complaining about people talking about hermetic as opposed to runic magic.

    They're mixing up behaviour with some of the traits, I suspect.

    Behaviour is more fluid, but if I say "vampire", I suspect most people would agree on them having the following traits:
    * Fangs
    * Pale skin
    * Die/are severely hampered by getting stakes through their hearts
    * Burst into flame from the touch of sunlight

    And added stuff which may or may not fit some vampires:
    * Not visible in mirrors
    * Aversion to religious symbols (or faith)
    * Hideous in appearance
    * Sex on legs (or a metaphor for sexuality, whatev)
    * Inhumanely strong, fast etc
    * capable of limited shapeshifting
    * unaging
    * cast out from heaven
    * demonic subrace
    * weaknesses void when invited into house

    And so forth. You CAN add behavioural stuff like "lust for blood", "mindless when newly made", "love garlic", and so on, but they don't _need_ to be there for a typical vampire.

    This is a matter of prototypes, though - not everyone will view a "real vampire" with the exact same criteria, but most will agree upon something close to it. And, thanks to Twilight, we'll probably have a generation of fangirls whose prototypical vampire is dull, immune to sunlight and sparkles like glitterdust was applied to them.

    There's a difference between "favourite type of vampire" and "typical vampire", though.

    I'm not trolling, though if I were I'd appreciate that you arrived pre-butthurt to the thread

    I know, but this mindset of "hey let's make THIS race with THESE traits!!" seems to overshadow, you know, interesting characters a whole lot of the time. A race doesn't inherently make a character interesting-- this is the problem with obnoxious people who think that vampires are cool. No, they are not cool. Individual characters with interesting personalities and histories are cool.

    Differing vampire origins is not what I'm irritated by. That's perfectly fine, and sure, have mindless vampires. But even animals have personalities.
    >> / !/////m/ShI 01/21/09(Wed)09:05 No.3474179
    Yeah, I suppose that's my problem with it.

    >Differing vampire origins is not what I'm irritated by. That's perfectly fine, and sure, have mindless vampires. But even animals have personalities.

    I have to step in here and point out that even among animals, behaviours are reproduced. There IS fluidity, of course, but... Well, dog breeds are a good example: german shepherds are noted for being loyal and protective of their masters. This applies pretty much to any german shepherd you find, ranging from assertiveness to general paranoia on the dog's part.

    As we go into humanoids, yeah, things get a bit more complicated, but there are still stuff people do. It's more subtle and mostly not applicable, I suspect. But with vampires - isn't there much "inbreeding", so to speak, so that some of the weirder things and behaviours reproduce?

    tl;dr: Some behavioural inheritance among vampires can make sense, given inherited traits. Also, generic vampires are like generic people - feel free to flesh them out if you feel like sinking time into that.

    If you can accept that some people will think of vampires as mindless monsters, why would those people then need to think of individual characters for vampires in order to be allowed to think "vampires are awesome!"?

    Would you require people to differentiate between individual zombies to think "zombies are awesome," or to differentiate between individual bears to think "bears are awesome"?

    This is what I think a vampire looks like.
