H-h-hey /tg/ can we have a /tg/ approved anime (i.e. fantasy themed animes) thread? I'd ask /a/ for recommendations, which is what I'm looking for, but I prefer /tg/.

Anyway, I just finished Louie the Rune Soldier, by the same guy who made Record of the Lodoss War.

>> No.22344470

Louie is my favorite muscle wizard.

Also acceptable genre shows are:

Berserk
Orphan
Slayers
Dragon Half

Probably others as well.

just watched it and it had some of the best characters I've seen in a long time. Each of the characters gets fleshed out, and even the villains are fully developed as characters.

Spice and Wolf.

Come for the cute haughty wolf girl.

Stay for the cute haughty wolf girl teaching you economics.

Also, Slayers, Lodoss War. Legends of the Galactic Heroes for Sci-Fi, and the Fate series of Anime and Visual Novels.

>> No.22345733

>>Fate series

I vote no for the early series. Fate/Stay Night was a valiant effort but it was cheaply made, poorly adapted, and riddled with problems. Best to start with Fate/Zero even if you miss a few continuity nods. From there decide if you want more.

Ooh, also Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Good mindfuck anime. A bit over-hyped, but still totally worth it.

>> No.22345790

>>22345733
If there was a good mechanic for multiple timelines, I would run a game similar to this. There's a few good roleplayers in my games so I might give it a shot, but the whole 'Met your character before you were your character' might not work out so well.

>> No.22346137

It's only a manga series (for now), but I recommend Maou x Yuusha. Has some parallels with Spice and Wolf, except it focuses more on macroeconomics, takes place in an NES-era Dragon Warrior game, and really pokes holes in a few RPG tropes (pic related).

Basically like a tabletop game where the players ignore the stock good-vs-evil plot in favor of influencing countries on a global scale and/or revolutionizing agriculture/warfare/etc, forcing the GM to scuttle his original plot and flesh out the leaders of entire countries.

Also notable because MaoYuu was first written on 2ch before getting published. That's an achievement on the scale of a random piece of 4chan writefaggotry suddenly landing a deal with major publishers and being reproduced as a novel with comic book spinoffs.

yes, i know, mangafox, but i'm in a hurry.

>> No.22346321

I'd add Silent Mobius to the list of shows related to Shadowrun. It's magic/sci-fi cops hunting demons in future Tokyo.


>>22345018
Mah nigga. That's an excellent show that's not on the list. In a similar vein, Escaflowne.

>> No.22346396

Ghost in the Shell. Which one? Doesn't matter. They're all fodder for a cyberpunk game.

Black Lagoon and/or Jormungand. Modern setting fodder, the characters in either one are remarkably similar to PC murderhobos I think.

The series is pretty damn good too, although I'm less enthusiastic about the new movies (mainly due to the shitty CG being a huge turn off)

>> No.22346589

So, what's /tg/'s consensus on the following?

>The Tower of Druaga, both seasons.
If you haven't seen it, the show can pretty much be summarised as: "adventurers racing through a dungeon for ultimate treasure: the anime" or "Slayers 2.0"

I'd also recommend Outlaw Star.

>> No.22346591

It's a visual novel, but Shikkoku no Sharnoth is a great read if you like steampunk and lovecraftian horror. The setting itself is great for inspiration in general. It explains enough to know what's going on, but it barely scratches the surface of the specifics. Sekien no Inganock by the same writer apparently goes into more detail but I've yet to read it.

It's to be expected, considering the protagonist is your run-of-the-mill university student.

Its not an anime but more people should read "Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou"

The premise is a bit different (centers around a robot running a cafe after a vaguely defined disaster) and not much happens (sample chapters include "Alpha gets a model airplane engine running" and "Some kids dick around on a beach.") but what it does well is
-has very nice art
-shows a different take on the end of the world; things are clearly in decline, but there's no Mad Max breakdown of society. Its a different take on post-apoc settings. There's problems to be solved, but its more trying to get by and less oh boy, biker gangs. More about a sense of wonder, less about terror.

I'm using it as idea fodder for any apoc-related games I run. Its got some interesting imagery and the ending is a big cocktease I'd love to unleash on players someday.
