Chances are many of the anime deserving a fighting game will never get one, unless someone does a kick starter for cyberconnect2 or something but either way I want to hear your picks for fighting games based on anime.

Animes I want turned into a fighter are Accel World (since its a show about n MMO-fighting game), D. Gray-Man, and Toriko
what anime would you like to be in .?

the problem is that you have to pick a world where everyone has a fighting chance:

-If you pick a supernatural based world then theres a chance that you won't be sensitive to the supernatural and be a normal human and do nothing.

-If you pick a world where everyone is human but badass, then that means they probably have years of training and you'll be playing catch-up and most likely still be in training when the main villain attacks.

-If you pick a world where the people with powers have powers simply because they were chosen, then just like supernatural worlds theres is a chance you won't be chosen and simply be stuck watching shit go down.

I think Ultimatefuffin has it right by picking a virtual world because you can introduce yourself to the awesome world and like everyone else in it work your ass off to become badass.

If i had to pick I would love to be in the magical world of MAR. Since in MAR all beings from the human world become faster, stronger, and magically powerful by simply being in MAR.
what are your saddest anime moments? (beware of spoilers)

I don't know why no one brought this one up, since everyone had to have been just a kid when they saw it. I think i was 8 or 9 when the 3rd Hokage was stabbed in the heart but even with the pain he kept fighting. He then sacrificed his very soul... to try and seal Orochimaru away forever. Even though he failed in sealing him he did delay orochimaru for about a year.

The scene afterwards was what made me cry...the combination of Sadness and Sorrow being played on the piano and the scene of EVERYONE going to the 3rd's funeral. Even though many of the young ones didn't want to be there, they went because the 3rd always treated everyone in the village as though they were his grandchildren, and then finish with his actual grandchild Konohamaru crying so hard he could barely stand.

That is how a sad moment is done.
Whose your favorite Naruto character?

in Part 1 rock lee stole the show with his backstory, gaara fight, his struggle, and overcoming his injury.

However it seems that in Part 2 no one chose properly, since we all know that Killer B is the ultimate Mary Sue character ever.
-He is a master swordsman, to the point he invented the Shichitoryuu (7-sword style)
-Is an excellent martial artist, with a lot of strength to back it up
-He can use lightning power
-And he also one of the jinchuriki to tame his fully-transformed state.

It like someone on the writing staff said we should make someone who is badass in like every possible way.

I recommend this manga to anyone who loves martial arts and thats the korean manga God of Highschool. If they made that into an anime I would definitely watch and recommend it.

The first anime i watched was back when i was about 4 yr/old and I just thought they were all cartoons (meaning, single episode stories like loony tunes) which was pokemon. I had no idea what anime was until i had discovered Toonami which introduced me to 2 animes that truly showed me what anime was. Those two shows i watched when i was about 7 or 8 and they were Naruto and IGPX.

Even though i love naruto more than IGPX i still hold a place in my heart for that series since the premise was so insanely awesome that it aired on Toonami afterall. It was just about a future sport that had teams of 3 race against eachother in rollerblading mecha goin at about 200mph.

Giant Killing- The story of a Japanese soccer team that has had a long running losing streak and is at risk of being cut from the league. The soccer team Eastern Tokyo United (ETU) is looking for anyway they can return to the days where they won many games and had a huge fan base. When they need to find a new headcoach they make the rash decision to hire Tatsumi Takeshi. The reason why this is a rash decision is because Tatsumi used to be the star player for ETU during their best years, but he suddenly left the team for unknown reasons and his leaving is widely regarded as the turning point for when the team started losing all the time. So the management is scared that they might lose a lot of fans with this decision. However Tatsumi turns out to be an amazing coach using unorthodox coaching methods to mold the best team possible.

The show is an interesting take on a sport series, as it mainly follows the head coach in his efforts to turn ETU into a championship team. This makes sense seeing as there a lot of characters including the starting lineup for the team, the sub players, the team's managers, the owner, and of course the other teams. One thing i found absolutely amazing in this series has to do with the voice acting. This series is the only one I've seen where characters from different parts of the world speak their native languages instead of japanese or english. This is the first anime I've seen to have voice acting in English, Japanese, Portuguese, French, and even German, unlike similar shows where if a group of japanese characters go to italy or germany everyone there will speak japanese. The show has pretty good animation, but the story can get confusing in later parts with the narrative flashing backward and forward on what happened during or after a game, but for the most part its a pretty good sport anime and an interesting look at voice acting and dialogue writing.

Hajime no Ippo- Makunouchi Ippo is a high schooler who gets picked on and beat up a lot, until one day he is offered a boxing lesson by a boxer named Takamura Mamoru. To both of their surprise it turns out that since Ippo has been helping his mom load and unload fishing boats since middle school he has an enormous amount of natural strength, he just doesn't know a single thing about fighting. He becomes so interested in the world of boxing that he wants to become the best he can, and so sets his sights on the title of Feather Weight Champion of Japan.

The series exposes you to the basics of boxing and then slowly builds on that because the audience is on the same level as Ippo since he knows nothing of the sport. The animation is pretty decent is gets pretty bad at the comedic moments but when it gets to a major fight it can look pretty amazing. The animation is at its absolute best in the second series (Hajime no Ippo New Challenger). The interesting thing about the show is that before each fight you get 1 or 2 scenes to introduce you to Ippo's opponent and you get to understand their personality and get a bit of backstory, a few of them you may even begin caring about during said scenes. Aside from Ippo the series also follows Takamura and Ippo's rival Miyata Ichirou for some time. Both of them have interesting stories of where their fighting career takes them. If you like sport or fighting animes you'll definitely enjoy this one.

Sengoku Basara- A series adapted from the series of games by CAPCOM which take famous figures from the Segoku Period (or Warring states period) of Japan and give the full on anime treatment such as sonic speed, super strength, and of course elemental magic.

The series is set during the time in the Sengoku era when Japan was split into dozens of major provinces, most of which were at war with each other. Oda Nobunaga ruled over about a third of Japan and was planning to rule japan as king and end the war. The series follows Sanada Yukimura the retainer or right-hand-man of General Shingen Takeda (The Tiger of the Kai Province) and his rivalry with Date Masamune a powerful samurai and general. Mostly the series is an interesting look at japanese history and will either get you interested in these famous figures in history or not, but even is it doesn't the animation is great, there are plenty of crazy awesome fights and there are some really cool characters and designs.

Many of the characters (since they are famous generals and warriors in Japanese history) appear in a variety of games the most notable being Sengoku Basara series, Samurai Warriors series, and Pokemon Conquest. If you enjoy the show you may also enjoy seeing how your favorite character looks in the more realistic Samurai Warriors or in a pokemon game.
