I admit I have a fondness for classic cartoons, epecially Disney. Though I enjoy how complex cartoons can be, sometimes you want a simple story of a mouse, duck, and dog going about there daily routines.The black and white ones can reach as far back as 1928, the year Steamboat Willie was first shown, and they were very weird. But then again most cartoons were at the time and oddly enough they weren't ment solely for children. I remember watching the old Cartoon Network cartoons. The ones you listed are very good, I would also add the Power Puff Girls though I didn't watch it as much as the others. I agree with Courage the Cowardly Dog, that was my favourite and I am quite suprised how they were able to get with so much.
It's interesting how growing older can change the way you viewed things from your childhood. For Courage, I really loved watching it as a kid, but I noticed I have a little bit of a hard time watching some episodes now since I'm not a fan of being overally surreal. I still hink it's a great cartoon that everyone should try though. For Digimon I can that the original two seasons have aged quite well. I want to try watching Tamers again myself and see if, me having a better understanding of storytelling, I would have a different opinion on it. I believe you are correct there. The only possible problem with that is how the Pokemon manga aren't just simply darker but also more violent from what I know. Being that the anime is mostly geared to young children makes me think that they may not go for it unfortunately. Which means Ash is still here...at least change the way things happen to him. Will do most certaintly. I can't really say what exactly makes people think that about Beelzebub. I haven't reached that map yet though I am working on it, so unfortunately I can't say much but I still stand by what I think happpens with Majins. I just find it hard to believe that he is most certaintly dead when the Pumpkin King came back in full force with the current event. Maybe we will have a Pumpkin Majin based off the Headless Horseman? I honestly didn't think I wanted that until I just thought of it ^_^ Hmm, I know I read some legends with that concept but I can't remember. The thing is that most stories, especially epics or things of that nature, generally have the basic rule of "defeat the weaker enemies to earn the fight with the powerful ones". The only exceptions would be when a minor villain wasn't fully defeated and they come back aftewards to settle the score. I really need to finish the Majin's Inner Body arc so I can have better idea about this.
They could potentially, it would make gaming headlines world wide. It isn't? I thought the Super Crown was a proper item. I hope you don't mean Game Theory. There fine in certain aspects but I find a lot of their conclusions to have major flaws. I should look more into the Super Crown, this has really piqued my interest. I personally wouldn't count Bayonetta, only because she is not a Nintendo character like Samus. Kid Icarus does have a fair bit fanservice, albeit to a lesser degree, including Medusa and Phosphora. Seeing that for the first time was surpring especially how Palutena "emphasized" herself and her in-game movements. Oddly enough the thing most people took from it was how an anime Zelda or Kid Icarus is something we definitely need. That is very true.
Something I found recently, an actual scene from the game Kid Icarus Uprising. Not the best quality unfortunately but it does show how willing Nintendo is for fanservicing cartain characters.
I am relatively certain that the artist is a girl, I remember seeing Kuremisao and Petite Soeur refrencing as much. That is indeed true, there is no way to have avoided that situation. From what I know they are contractually obliged to make base art and AW'ed art for all current units. You may be right in that an artist can't just simply step aside, unless it's for reasons beyond their control I imagine. Also it may not be as inforced with 2AW. I would guess it's understood that they need to provide art for it but they are not rushed for it. There are cases though, like Thetis, were the original artist couldn't supply what they were asked for so another had to take their place.
That it is very good assertion. As support for it, the current event unit, Candy, is training to be a mage and it doesn't seem that anyone has a problem with it. I think it may be implied that her family is supporting her in this as well. So it seems that magick users are on their way up the social ladder. That is quite possible given how machine oriented the Industrial Capital seems to be. If there is a "Witch Hunt" motiff to some of its units, I wonder how they would be in personality. I would imagine they wouldn't be in the best sorts having to contain all that power. Rinne became a border line mute after being incarcerated.
It is a true wok of art and it even managed to influence many modern film makers like Spielberg on how to make movies. If you manage to find the time I highly recommend it. The old everything depends on how you look at it logic strikes again. An unfortunate truth for many wars was that the act of glory was one of the primary motivators and the WW's were a prime example of this. You would expect documantaries to showcase this but rather they promote it. On a related note I really should watch Code: Geass again. I never managed to finish it but it was quite good from what I saw. I can only hope that would be the case and I also hope that the "sacrificing accuracy for entertainment" doesn't become an industry standard. Many game were able to balance the two quite well with having the story take palce alongside a historical event rather being about. Assassins Creed may be suffering from being a AAA game having to meet expectations so there is still hope in the indie games.
One day Thetis will come, so best of luck to you! Barbastroff and Cyrus pair quite well together. One of the several reasons I think they were together in some way. Also considering the current 2AW line up, you must be looking forward to Ema's 2AW. She is considered one of the best duelists in the game so there is a lot to look forward to. Of that list the units I have that I'm looking forward to are Lewd Blue, Racua, Kibahime, and Bernice. Especially Bernice, Heavy Armors deserve much needed love.
