Oh, and although not strictly related, you guys did also recommend Aria, Legend of the Galactic Heroes and xxxHolic to me, and those were all pretty damn good. Slayers was a bit hit-and-miss, but at least when it failed, it did so in much the same way as your average RPG campaign.

No.

You CAN make them /tg/ related by discussing them with the idea of turning into a rpg set, but for what it is it isn't.

By the way, we discuss shit that's not /tg/ related all the fucking time, so stop pretending GitS is /tg/ related when it isn't.

Really, it boils down to two questions, is it decent quality and does it feel like an RPG campaign? If the answer is "its not crap" and "yes", then it's a /tg/ anime.

D&D/Fantasy -
The Slayers
Record of Lodoss Wars and its spinoffs
Tower of Druaga

SciFi
Legend of Galactic Heroes
Banner/Crest of the Stars
G Gundam
Gundam 08th MS Team (arguably most of the original Gundam timeline)
Tenchi Muyo and Universe (former for quality, later for being a campaign)
Outlaw Star
Cowboy Bebop

Cyberpunk -
Akira
GitS SAK (arguably the two movies)
Armitage
Bubblegum Crisis/Crash/AD Police

Modern/Ultramodrn (i.e. "now" with some scifi tech) -
Gunsmith Cats/Riding Bean
Burn UP

There are more. Those are just what come off the top of my head.

You must be new to /tg/ because everything you said there is exactly correct. /tg/ is a melting pot of topics, ideas, concepts...traditional games can and do draw information and inspiration from a staggeringly wide range of sources. That is what is happening here: an exchange of the highest caliber, an enrichment of the hobby.

To insist discussions be restricted to only the strictest definitions of "traditional games" is counterproductive, stifling and ultimately hurtful to /tg/ and its community.

Fullmetal would be fantastic, but I think it wouldnt be as full an experience without a mechanically specific setting. I'm also pretty confident someone's already made a FM game engine out there somewhere.

I wouldn't say Kubo is particularly bad at writing Bleach or at the making of Aizen, it's just that he sucks at pacing so if you follow the mango it's going to feel more like torture than entertainment.

It's better to read it monthly. Or not read it at all, but once you start, there is no going back.

The only guy who was defeated by that was Ulquiorra. what's his name pink sword captain and Ichigo were evenly matched in the end, the Ichigo's fight against cat espada was pretty even, Ichigo didn't manage to kill Aizen, and in the end he was stopped by Urahara not Ichigo, facebook is just mindfucking Ichigo now.

And Aizen curbstomped all the good guys, and all of Ichigo's "friends" get curbstomped in each arc by the bad guys.

Strands of FATE or Savage Worlds. Dem universal settings, man!

Really, I'd say straight up Spirit of the Century or another FATE system. I haven't seen Durarara, but given that it;s basically Baccano minus the extreme gore, it seems about right. YOu wanna have a climactic fight atop a train between two psychos who forgot that they were ordinary humans in a world full of immortals? NO PROBLEM!

>Broken Blade

Now that could be pretty awesome. Unfortunately, the average PC won't get to do a mid-air turn kick off of a sword, but it could be awesome regardless.

Just so /tg/ knows what we're talking about, it's a mecha show where the mechs are powered by crystal sorcery; just about everyone in this world can telekinetically manipulate a particular kind of quartz, which over time has allowed them to create a lot of modern-level tech via quartz ligaments and other such things. Warfare is accomplished by large mech suits that can use air-pressure guns, but also use swords and such.

Also, I liked it better when it was called Break Blade.

Because I do ever so love whipping this out at the slightest occasion;

Shingeki no Kyojin, or Advance of the Giants (or Titans if you prefer). The setting is a western-styled world that reached something akin to high renaissance; there were still castles, but they had fairly good cannons and such. But out of the north a horde of giants showed up, that are all somewhere between 3 and 15 meters tall. The giants are humanoid, but oddly proportioned, and they tend to regenerate from nearly any wound unless struck at a precise point on the back of their neck. They do not speak and are not very intelligent, but are very strong.

Their only goal; to devour all humans.

Given their strength, they forced humanity back and back, until we built a series of huge, 50 meter tall walls to bar entry to the giants. There are three, an outer wall, a middle wall, and an inner wall, all successively smaller. For nearly a hundred years, man was safe.

Until recently, an even larger giant appeared; one tall enough to look over the wall, and to kick a hole into it for its smaller friends.

The last line of defense are an elite corp of specially trained soldiers using the latest in tech, the three-dimensional movement system. It consists of a waist-mounted, gas-powered grappling system; the hooks fire from the waist, lodge themselves in something, and then wind up, ideally bringing the soldier along with. This allows the soldier to quickly travel from ground level up to the giants' height, and from there to the weak spot at the back of the neck in a spiderman fashion. The triggers that control the grappling system are also built to hold disposable blades, which are then used to cleave the crucial weakpoint, killing the giant.

These troops, as you might imagine, have a pretty large fatality rate, but they're one of the few weapons that have any effect against the giants.

I usually think of Black Lagoon as a resettinged Shadowrun game. Never saw a show that got me into the mindset quite as much. Rock's a textbook example of the 'fucked by the company, wound up a runner' archetype.

Basilisk.
Mutant ninja clans dueling to the death over politics and secret agendas. Right up there with Ninja Scroll. Despite being 12 episodes, they are very short, only 20 minutes apiece, and very well dubbed for anime.

>>15583662
Ther eis actually an anime semi-based on Exalted. The Heroic Age (Ah-geh) is about humanity - the iron tribe - tryign to survive the depredations of the silver and the bronze tribes (humans and psychics) aftert the golden tribe (the creators of the other sapient races) left. The Heroic Tribe was all but destroyed....except for one, who merged with a human child lost on a far away 'world....' It's surprisingly Exalted in flavor.

Anything by Tsutomu Nihei.

Seriously, the man lives and breaths grimdark megastructures.

Blame!, a manga in which mankind is mostly whipped out or living in cramped cities using technology they barely understand to hopefully (and usually unsuccessfully) stave off destruction by crazy cyborg deathmachines or the robots which were created to kill the cyborgs.

Illiteracy is at just less than 100% and the horrible doom structure is expanding at an exponential rate. At the very least, we know that it's swallowed up Jupiter at this point. The main characters are about as PC as you can get, including wrecking hundreds of cubic miles of structure frequently, and using a gun that puts 80km holes in whatever you shoot it at / rips your arm off when fired on the highest setting.

Made around some boardgames? Like Hikaru no Go?
Or look like some RPG? Then any fantasy one.

Or it is just 'post your favorite anime' in /tg/ related disguise? Then what is good /tg/ related CP?

It pretty much represents the the ideals of all good themed campaigns where a group of thrill seeking adventures join together to live out there dreams, seeking adventure for the sake of adventure, and doing good deeds and building a reputation for yourselves along the way, all the while becoming stronger and getting closer and closer to your final goal.

He claims that the lack of backgrounds helps to put focus on the actions of the characters. Whether that's an excuse or not doesn't really matter, I would prefer no backgrounds to bad backgrounds. I doubt assistants would draw Miura class backgrounds.
