He could have just put the Zelda characters in an image search and picked out the first anime picture he saw (then use image search again to figure out who that was).

I don't really feel like that excuse holds for most of these characters, most of all Midna, Ruto, and Fi.

I said not to ask!

Okay, you want to know how the sausage is made? FINE!

First of all, when I first played this game almost a year ago, the basic concept for this article had already taken root. As is obliquely mentioned in the bullet point section, the fact that all the women's victory animations included a healthy amount of "camera winking" deeply reminded me of the harem anime "we're all here for your titillation" bend. It was a short jump from there to see the comparison between the Hyrule Warriors cast and various stock types.

Then ROB chose this game, and I remembered my initial thinking, and whipped into it on Monday, drawing up a basic skeleton and hitting TV tropes to see the distinct "terms" for these archetypes. "Cloud cuckoolander" and "tsundere" are not normally a part of my vocabulary.

Then, with my list of "gets", I hit my anime collection for characters to capture. There were some happy accidents when I started hitting the list: Tenchi was always my thought for Link, but I had completely forgotten Tenchi was a swordsman before I fired up the OVA. Love Hina has always been "the second harem show" in my head, so Naru was natural for Zelda even before I realized their physical similarity. Kurmuru of Rosario + Vampire was the first "rival" character I thought of outside of the first two shoes, and holy cow, that one is practically a double for Lana. The majority of the rest were just trying to think of someone who fit the description put forth in the article, and not use the same series twice. Obviously, I didn't watch entire episodes to get those captures, just kinda skipped around until I knew the character was being featured (speaking), and it was pretty easy from there.

And, yes, to address the question I'm dancing around: I watch trashy anime like some people watch trashy reality shows or similar fare. I will admit to really liking the entire Tenchi series back in the day, and, for better or worse, I enjoy the story of Steins;Gate and the direction (as in staging and animation, not the direction of the story) of Monogatari. The rest are predominantly shows I've popped in over the last decade under the pretense of "this looks completely insane", and watched halfheartedly while raising pokemon or something.

So, with my hazy memories of these shows, I just checked an episode guide to see which episodes might feature which characters, and here we are.

And just to prove my insanity and that I didn't just GiS along...
  • The Tenchi capture is from the first episode of the OVA.
  • Naru is from the first episode of the second season, that three episode dealy thing with the weird cousin or whatever.
  • Kurumu is from her introduction episode, I believe the second or third episode.
  • The Infinite Stratos grab is from the episode at the end of their class trip, probably like episode seven or so.
  • Monogatari's second episode is there. Was deliberately doing a tsundere thing there with Midna looking pissed off and Crabby looking friendly.
  • Sen is compliments of the beach episode, I believe the fifth episode. Was hoping for something more aquatic...
  • D-Frag's last episode featured there because I (incorrectly) guessed there'd be at least one really good shot of the star there.
  • Ikaros could be from damn near any episode, but I believe I settled somewhere in season two, like episode four or something. The original plan was to get the villain from that series to match "Ganon", but I couldn't get a good shot, and too much of Ikaros talking and saying "master" just turned her into an easy Fi.
  • Daru is just from the first episode.
  • And Astaroth is flying in from his third season villainous turn around episode seven. I had just watched this nonsense, so it was fresh in my mind.

So, in conclusion, I've wasted my life.

Admitting you have an anime is the first step to moving on from anime.

Also I don't actually have a problem with you liking anime, but you were pretty much asking for this.

Regarding the Darkwing Duck post, I seem to recall that there's a romhack of Darkwing Duck that adds a new final stage which pops up after Steelbeak is defeated, which features Negaduck as the final boss. I believe he kidnaps whats-her-face also, not Goslyn but whichever character what was sometimes DW's love interest.

At the very least upon beating the new stage you're treated to a splash image that features the good guy cast, so at least some intrepid hackers were able to pick up Capcom's slack. Y'know, a little bit.

Oh yeah! Morgana! Darkwing's girlfriend and a magical witch that also occasionally proved to be a better crimefighter than Darkwing. Yeah, can't see how she could possibly be adapted to a video game.

Dammit, Capcom.

Neat to see that hack exists, though. So oddly specific, but I should never doubt that that kind of thing can get made.

Ph sure, mention that there's a Hug button, but ignore the fact that Blob gets as when you don't hug him.

Whatever, Man!

I feel like there's an important word missing here...

Speaking of missing, I should force everyone to comb the latest KH faq entry for this, but I was taught to share without mercy, so here's the best sound clip in Kingdom Hearts.

Autocorrect decided that "as" was a worthy replacement for the word "mad"

Dear GoggleBob.

Please make the banner at the top of the page that says "GoggleBob.com" a link to gogglebob.com because I will be reading a thing on your site and then want to go back to the front page and click it and then just sit there waiting for something to happen.

Then I'll click it AGAIN.

I've suffered long enough Gogglebob. It doesn't have to be this way.

Your voice is great and now I'm reading your posts in it, but I'm not too much a fan of the "Brandname .com" finish to the video. I find that sort of thing kind of grating.

In an effort to boost traffic, we are going full buzzfeed today.

Okay, maybe I've just been chomping at the bit to use that format for some sort of subtle "cool comparison" between the 90's and now.

Noted! And, speaking of which, the top of this week (Playstation All-Stars etc.) marked the 50th post on the site, combining FGC and KHFAQ. Given the "milestone" there, any other thoughts on the site or the content or... anything? I'm thinking about taking a break after FGC#50 to recharge and redesign the site and format and what have you, so what does everyone think?

There are no wrong answers!

Also, the DS version uses the correct Bio sound effect, or at least something close enough to pass muster.

Has any game went from being almost universally showered with hyperbolic praise to openly derided faster than Bioshock: Infinite?
