Stealing this from Robin because it looked like funsies.


Comment here with the name of your character(s) and the series they're from and I WILL TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW ABOUT THEM/IT/THINGS in one+ sentence. EVEN/ESPECIALLY IF WE'VE NEVER THREADED.

I'm sure you know Zidane, so I think the most hilarity will come from York (Deadly Premonition)

Deadly Premonition is about Agent York and his best buddy Zack who occasionally take time out of their busy schedule discussing which one of Tom and Jerry who are on top, which eighties movies drool and rule and how coffee should be served to fight crime and gently run over shadowdogs. Am I getting it right?

I know I've only threaded with you with Kaiji, but I'm curious about what your take is on all three of my characters /canons XD: Kaiji/Kaiji, Anthy/Revolutionary Girl Utena, and The Disreputable Dog/The Old Kingdom trilogy

KAIJI- A man poor in judgment and monetary assets yet rich in nose makes one bad decision after another, only to be briefly uplifted by a good decision every now and then so he can continue to make bad decisions late onr.

ANTHY- Once upon a time some dude wanted to do a show that had symbolism, ALL OF THE SYMBOLISM, and he succeeded in doing so; unfortunately he forgot coherency somewhere along the way but figured that he didn't need coherency to turn pretty boys and girls into cars.

DISREPUTABLE DOG-... Iiii got nothing, sorry.

I AM CURIOUS ABOUT THE CURRENT CROP YOU THREAD WITH THOUGH, which I think is really just

Himura Rikuou/Legal Drug
Yoi-te/Nabari no Ou

LEGAL DRUG- Two very pretty boys that have very pretty banter go on very pretty telekinetic adventures in service for a skeevy man in white coat and super-reliable smile.

NABARI NO OU- Young ninja finds love on the battlefield, then loses it because Disney lied and having your wish come true is a bitch, then it's time to learn archeology.

Hoo boy.

Megumi (Princess Princess), Soma (Gundam 00), Alto (Macross Frontier), Aoi (Love DNA XX), Ivan (Being Human).

PRINCESS PRINCESS- Three dudes wear frilly dresses to rein in the desires of their fellow men and try to pretend that it's no homo (even though they mostly are), and then relationships outside the hetero-normative happen.

GUNDAM-00- People in giant robots try to bring about peace by making war which doesn't work out very well for them, then Prince Ali fucks up EEEVEERYTHING and pretty much eeeeveeeryone while sparkly telepathic love blooms on the battlefield.

MACROSS FRONTIER- A lady armed with breasts of hope sings in order to boost morale and powers of the army because that happens in this world, then a little girl can also sing with superpowers and they must both sing so that cross-dressing dude can save the day together with giants who turn regular-sized.

LOVE DNA XX- So penises are gone but dudes aren't for some backwards reason, so some dudes go to this school where they have very pretty adventures.

BEING HUMAN- A ghost, a vampire and a werewolf live together, but since this isn't a movie they don't fight but just... live together and have room-mate hijinxs, then their common centuries of history catch up with them and ever so much shit goes down.

why not

Ageha (di[e]ce)
Kuroyuri (07-GHOST)
Naoi Ayato (AngelBeats!)

From: [identity profile] aguidingoath.livejournal.com
DI[E]CE- Chess is suddenly played with human pieces, and most of them are male and very pretty and very disturbed in their heads.

07-GHOST- Once upon a time Satan totally wanted some of Gods hot jailbait daughter but kinda fucked up and then she died and is now a dude and Satan doesn't really care because he's an open-minded kinda guy who can swing with that if he has too, only now Satan is kind of trying to destroy the world for a booty call and the daughter-son is on the side of good and trying his darn best to save the world with seven handsome men and his drago-boyfriend, also there's this kid with an eyepatch and unclear gender because that's just how this show rolls.

ANGELBEATS!- Purgatory holds a lot of disgruntled teenagers who wants to do a rocking revolution to get another chance at life, only things don't work out too well for them all the time and they die a lot.

For which one of the shows?

From: [personal profile] notonboard
ALL OF THEM, sob. Those could probably be the canon sections in an app.

Ha ha I have read so many apps over the years the "humorous short-hand description" format must just come naturally to me now! Still, the only one I really know anything about is 07-Ghost: I've just read a few chapters of Diece and seen nothing of Angel Beats. Is Beats good?

Fairly good, I'd think! It's short (13 episodes), and has drama, humor, and action. The characters are all great (even if their screentime is uneven), and it will either make you laugh or heartpunch you. Unfortunately, it might be a little off-putting if you get whiplash from sudden humor/drama episodes that come out of nowhere at times, or if you expect a strong plot (there kind of is one, but then it drops off and a new one starts up later in). I am awful at pimping things, but I think it's worth a try :(b

Sera (Digital Devil Saga), Lung Tien Lien (Temeraire), Toothless (How To Train Your Dragon), and Sebastian Michaelis (Black Butler)?

DIGITAL DEVIL SAGA- The most adorable world-destroying little girl gathers a group of rainbowhaired guardians to have magical adventures, and then they devour everything in sight and meet ~symbolic~ ends.

TEMERAIRE- Stuffy proper English gentleman sailor Laurence thought he had it all, until he met the partner that nobody could predict: the hot-shot, don't play by the rules, maverick young dragon Temeraire, and together they fight against the working class in Impressively Well-researched Buddy-Soldier Movie: French Revolution on Dragons! Rated T for Teen due to multiple references to hookers.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON- Vikings learn to ride dragons in order to fight bad dragon, and yet it manages to be considerably less metal and more family-friendly than Napoleon on Dragons.

BLACK BUTLER- Little boy in questionable outfits sell his soul to the Devil in the vain hope that one day he will look like he's NOT from doujins that are now illegal in Europe and USA (oh and to right wrongs and restore family name and junk), and then I stopped caring because GODDAMMIT DOLL WAS ADORABLE AND DESERVED BETTER- ehem. Sorry. I'm okay now.

Alright you--

Shiki Misaki of The World Ends with You and Oswald from Odin Sphere.

This I gotta see.

The World Ends With You- Typical JRPG boy protagonist suddenly finds himself neckdeep in the mind and genre-fuck and tries to adapt as best as he can while a girl with body-issues out of this world wants his pants off, a boy wants in his pants and a third boy refuses pants that aren't hella sicknasty baggy style, yo.

Odin Sphere- Once upon a time there was an angry young man who met an angry young woman and they were drawn INCREDIBLY pretty and killed a fuckton of people and mythical beasts to find their happy ending... of the world.
