Since I wasted spent so much time tinkering with my blog theme and layout yesterday and this morning, I’m afraid this week’s Tuesday Rumble is a bit shorter than usual. World Tour and Mini-rant/editorial will be back next week.
RPG Maker: Perfect Edition
As we all know, the best edition of RPG Maker would be one that could read your mind and create a game based on your imagination, but in the meantime, let’s come up with a few ideas that would make RPG making easier.
- Tilesets and resources for numerous different settings, including modern, futuristic, Japan, period Europe, India, Middle Eastern and Native American.
- Full support for 2D, 3D and isometric games.
- A selection of battle systems covering almost every RPG, action RPG, platformer, fighting game and simulation game imaginable.
- Read made animations for every sort of physical and magical attack.
- Numerous pre-made events, as well as more move options that actually work.
- Fully customisable message windows (with minimal effort and scripting).
- Inbuilt support for summon monsters and exotic job classes.
Fist of the Blue Sky
Observe the muscular MANLINESS.
Sakura petals are always a sign of HARD GAY.
“No, you don’t put the Cane there!”
“We can surely fit in some HARD GAY.”
“Did you know you can get high on chalk?”
“I’ve never had Finger before!”
“We haven’t reached a climax yet!”
“It is called a condom.”
MANLY affection, redux.
“They all have dirty minds!”
Short parody: Tokyo Mew Mew A La Mode
Berry is introduced.
Berry: Hello, I’m Berry! I’m the new main character now that Ichigo is gone!
Tasuku: And I’m Tasuku, the obligatory love interest!
Berry: Now, there was too much angst last time because the main guy didn’t know the lead was a magical girl, so you might as well find out straightaway.
Tasuku: Berry, shut up- stories like this need angst!
Berry: Oh well, let’s angst over the fact that we both want to become more than childhood friends.
Mint etc: Hey, what about us? We went through seven volumes with hardly any development and now we’re getting shafted too!
Zakuro: Looks like it- they’re even making us all randomly transfer to Berry’s school.
Pudding: This makes no sense anymore!
Berry: Shut up- you’re destined to be supporting characters forever!
(Kish: At least you got page time.)
The new enemy, the Saint Rose Crusaders, arrive.
Saint Rose Crusaders: Gwakaka, we are the new evil! We have many members, but absolutely no development, and no reason to exist!
Ichigo: I heard someone was taking over as main character! I can’t let that happen, so I’m back!
The Saint Rose Crusaders commence their evil plan.
Saint Rose Crusader #1: I’ve come up with a most excellent plan! First, I’ll use subliminal messages to make everyone love Tokyo Mew Mew, and then I’ll change the messages so that they all hate them instead!
Saint Rose Crusader #2: Why don’t we just skip straight to the part where we make everyone hate them?
Saint Rose Crusader #1: Shut up! Why do you have to ruin everything with common sense?
The evil plan is put into place, and generics start shouting abuse at the Mew Mews.
Berry: No, this is wrong! Power of Love!
Ichigo: Who are you, Flonne?
Mint: Look, the power of love is affecting everyone!
Generics: I feel love for everything!
Saint Rose Crusader Leader: Damn, my pointless and ineffectual plans were completely pointless and ineffectual! Now I see that love is the answer!
This Week in Anime
rnAnyone can make up for small size with a giant wang-shaped desk.rnrn
“The Apocalypse is coming- I must gather lettuces!”
“Why do you never consider the feelings of these apples and pears?”
“Quick oranges, get into the box- this is an apple-only town!”
“Your apples pass the inspection.”
“Flying apple- go!”
“Such attacks do not faze me.”
“Get that HORSE ready pronto!”
September Anime Awards
The “I pledge my soul to you” award for best anime ever goes to Dennou Coil, which only improves with every passing week.
The golden tanuki award for interesting new characters goes to SaiMono, for successfully introducing two more personalities into an already rather large cast.
The “this show has everything” award goes to first-time award winner Oh! Edo Rocket.
The “I don’t understand it but I like it anyway” award for confusing plot is awarded to Baccano! for the second month in a row.
The “I’m in Despair!” award for lack of subs goes to Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, although a slow catch-up is beginning.
The Second Monthly Ultimate Boredom Beyond Any Boredom Experienced Before award is given to El Cazador, although Seirei is trying hard to regain the trophy.
The second stylish supernatural horror award goes to Mononoke, which far surpasses its predecessor.
The “it all went downhill” award for inducing a complete lack of caring goes to Darker than Black.
The pointless episode award goes to Shounen Onmyouji episode eighteen for its lack of relevance to the main plot.
OST spotlight: Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex Be Human
Stand Alone Complex is known for its excellent music, but this CD takes a rather unique approach by focusing on so-called “Tachikoma themes”, such as those from Tachikoma Days. As well as a predominance of beeps, dial tones and the like, the CD covers a wide variety of tracks, from pseudo-classical to samba carnival and even a theme that wouldn’t sound out of place as Bleach OP. The result is a somewhat quirky mixed bag that can be rather hit-and-miss, but which will still be a necessary purchase for SAC and Yoko Kanno fans.
Notable tracks: Be Human, Trip City, Rocky wa Dokko?, Spotter
Reverse Harem of the week: Ichigo Momomiya (Tokyo Mew Mew)
Part-time catgirl, café-worker and defender of the Earth, Ichigo nonetheless had the time to accrue a harem worthy of any magical girl.
Masaya Aoyama: The “main guy”; Ichigo loved him from the start but nonetheless had to go through the usual phases of angst due to hiding her magical girl identity.
Ryou Shirogane: The cool and calm genius; usually rude to Ichigo but nonetheless goes out of his way to protect her.
Blue Knight: A mysterious warrior who appears to save Ichigo- could he be someone close to her?
Kish: One of the invading aliens, a cheeky prankster with a soft spot for Ichigo.
