Yep, we absolute need one of these. Well, we also need a Movie screenshot guessing thread, but i didn't want to start two at once. And imo, guessing anime screenshots is easier. Which means, yep, i've admitted it, i watch plenty of anime (guilty pleasure). Although it's probably more accurate to say i watch anything if it's SF, and almost anything if it's F. (which already is a tip about what kind of screenshots i can post)
Maybe this belongs in the games subforum (since it's a game) but i thought i'd try it here first where all the videophiles hang out. ;) So i hope it's not too unwelcome and won't get booted down there. :tongue:

Anyway, rules are simple:
1. Post a screenshot. Pick a nice one. Not a mugshot of the main character, but not exactly half a pixel out of the background of a 3-second scene either.
2. Anyone with an idea what it is can post a guess. If someone above you already guessed, but you think it's something else, feel free to post your guess without waiting for an answer first.
3. If no-one guessed correctly for a day (or a lot of people guessed wrongly, use your own judgement) post another screenshot. Up to three screenshot (and thus three days) per series. Make them progressively easier if possible. Maybe a minor recurring character or memorable scenery for the first, and a main character for the third.
4. If someone guessed correctly (and got confirmation) they're next up to post a screenshot or declare an open round. If the series hasn't been identified after the third screenshot has been up for a day, the next round is also up for grabs. Although it would still be nice to hear the solution. ;)
Addendum: 6. If you guess correctly but aren't available at least once a day for the next three days, please declare an open round. If no new pictures or updates come for two days or more, it's an open round, so the game doesn't stall.

Technical Help:
I suggest using Imageshack: http://imageshack.us/ as a host. Upload the image and then copy the line of code in the "Forum Thumbnail" box into your post. The thumbnail will help keep the bandwidth use for viewing this thread down, but you can view the image in full size by clicking on it.
Hint: Check the filename of the image before you upload it, or you could make it very easy to solve. ;)

Aye. If it's uploaded to an image hosting site, it should be fine.

I have plenty of anime screenshot ideas to unload, but unfortunately, I don't think I'd seen this one. Raxhephon, maybe?

LOG

I don't know which it is, but based on the style of animation I would say it's pretty recent, almost definitely post-2000.

I'd also say that it's a fair guess that it involves mecha, it's a rare anime that has simply aerial battle with no mecha element. Although it could be a space battle that's partly moved into a planet's atmosphere. It reminds me of Tytania, but that took place in outer space from what I remember, it's been awhile.

I do wonder about the green tint though, seems kind of strange.

<snip>Raxhephon, maybe?Nope.

For the record, you guys are fine as long as you're not hotlinking to sites that we're going to be costing extra bandwidth -- sites like flickr, photobucket, or your own domains are fine.

For the sake of our people on slow pipes, please keep the image sizes within a reasonable vicinity of about 500x500 px or smaller.

cheers!

By Yoshitoshi ABe, same guy responsible for Serial Experiments Lain. I recommend. Very different atmosphere from his other stuff.

Yeah, check it out. I don't usually recommend Utena though. But it was one of the inspirations for one of my novels, so I like it for that reason.

Revolutionary Girl Utena is somewhat character-driven sometimes, has nice fights, episode 33 is really good, and at least you can't complain at the music.

I love Elfen Lied too, but I find it a bit slow, so I have never rewatched the entire series, only a few episodes here and there.

I'm... I... I've seen the first episode, actually. I now wonder why I didn't watch more. (I remember very little, but isn't it also of special interest for writers, as it's - at least - in part about writing? Or something?)

Lhun
09-03-2010, 06:16 PM
Hm, a little maybe. I think it's mostly interesting because of the animation. Not just because the pictures are beautiful, but mostly because it actually utilizes the medium. Most animated movies/series are just like regular ones, only with drawn/rendered scenes. The creators of Ef treat every scene like a a painting, with no need to stick to what could be filmed with normal actors. I really recommend this one, even if only to be amazed by the visuals.
The awesome soundtrack helps too, of course.

I either simply use google (there's a tab for "pictures"; since I use the German browser, I don't know its name in English, but it should be easy enough to find). If I don't find anything good, I try fansub.tv (http://www.fansub.tv/), which is a site I found via the "google pictures". If they have the anime, they have a wide variety of pictures (many per episode), and ones that are otherwise hard to find (e.g. don't include the main characters).

However, they will often have subtitles, which - as Lhun said - makes guessing easier. (If you're more patient than I am, you might find good, no-sub images. But I explicitly wanted the coins, so...)

Kyra Wright
09-13-2010, 09:15 PM
Why would you want it dubbed?
1. Once it's dubbed, the DVDs can be made and released in the US
2. Durarara is being dubbed by the same people who did Baccano! (another series by the author of Durarara). Baccano! is, hands down, the best dub I've ever seen. It's better than the Japanese version by far. I am confident that the Durarara dub will be of the same quality.
