    RIP Desbreko 1988-2016

    Honestly, I still don't really know how to put how I feel into words regarding this. I feel like it's a bit surreal. Des is someone that I feel so fortunate having met. Though he was always on the quiet side, when he did speak, he always had a way of making me smile. Being a moderator with him is something I consider an honor. Whenever I approached him with questions, he always had an answer. It made me want to do better. I feel like I owe him for that. Des was partly responsible for getting me to love anime as much as I did. I can't tell you how many things he got me into. But because of him, I've been able to introduce those things to new friends and see how much enjoyment they get out of it--probably as much joy as he did showing those things to all of us. He was such a big, BIG part of this community in its heyday... It's just surreal to think that funny, silly, hard-working Des is no longer part of this world. I'm so heartbroken by all of it. The world lost a good man.
  2. [color=darkblue][size=1]One of the main purposes of Manga Alley is to get help with working on your artwork. With that being said, I have decided to create this topic. Any people wishing to ask for help from others will post a "help wanted" post here. Any topics created from now on regarding this subject will either be merged with this topic, or deleted entirely. Thanks much, Kei[/color][/size]
  3. [quote name='CaNz' timestamp='1320361205' post='710117'] Did you Tell Kei when Sakura no-showed? [/quote] [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"]That would probably be why. Either I didn't get a message that she no-showed, or it got lost in my Messenger box. I would like for everyone to send me their win-loss tally (I'm pretty sure you're all keeping track). I already have some things to fix and I want to make sure this is done right. This bye week thing is throwing me.[/color][/font]

Nine trainers have entered the field, but only one will stand at the top of the heap when the dust settles. Will we have a repeat Champion in [b]The Raging Typhoon, Lawliet[/b]? Only time will tell.

  5. [b][font="Century Gothic"]Round 4 roster is live. Recaps not available, since several pairs were no-shows/did not report. [/font][/b]
  6. [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"]I had completely intended to do them, but time got away from me. I'll try to start them again next weeks. [/color][/font]
  7. [b][font="Century Gothic"]Round 3 roster is now live! [/font][/b]
  8. [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"] It was in the rules that failure to report results or one of both trainers having technical issues would result in a draw-loss. This is a special case at the moment, though. The results will be amended when he comes back and has his battles. I just need to keep them this way for the moment so I don't get confused. [/color][/font]
  9. [b][font="Century Gothic"]Round 2 roster is live! [/font][/b]
  10. [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"]Roster is forthcoming. Technical difficulties. [/color][/font]

    OB Night Football

    [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"]In college news, apparently three more players for The Ohio State University have been suspended for the Nebraska game coming up on Saturday for accepting too much pay for too little work at their summer jobs. [url="http://www.wdtn.com/dpp/sports/college/3-buckeyes-suspended-for-nebraska-game"]Link to story[/url] With them being 3-2 already this season, this really isn't something that the Buckeye Nation needs right now, but it brings up a talking point that people have mentioned when the OSU scandal first broke. What is with the NCAA these days? There have been a lot of scandals breaking out over pretty glaring oversights. Is it that the regulators are being lax and only pouncing on something when there's too much evidence to ignore, or are players and coaches getting better at hiding things, or is it a mix of both or what? I don't think I'm the only one that thinks this is getting a bit ridiculous. [/color][/font]
  15. [quote name='White' timestamp='1317519358' post='709705'] [color="#696969"][font="Tahoma"]I've actually got a level 60 Poison team good to go (I was originally going to use it for the tournament but then decided on Grass). I could take Fancies spot if you want - if that's alright with everyone.[/font][/color] [/quote] [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"]If everyone else is fine with it, then I don't see a problem. However, since that means I'll have to redo the roster to account for that, so the battle timeframe will have to start on Monday, provided I get a response from everyone today (Sunday).[/color][/font]
  16. [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"]With people dropping out, it's thrown a wrench into the whole mechanic of the robin, so the entire first round may have to be scrubbed and we'll have to start again. That's the only way I can figure that people won't have to have rematches. Sorry, folks. [/color][/font]

    Anime Tiger & Bunny

    [quote name='Sangome' timestamp='1315097262' post='709253'] [color="#9932CC"][font="Microsoft Sans Serif"]GAVIN THAT POLL IS EVIL. I love pretty much everyone and I have no idea who to choose, ugh. I was kinda wondering about where those magnetic powers came from, though. I'm also kinda wondering how [spoiler]Barnaby suddenly got his memories back in this most recent episode. Was there something I missed or was it really just the whole FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC!!1 deal?[/spoiler][/font][/color] [/quote] [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"]From what I gather, [spoiler]Kotetsu calling Barnaby "Bunny-chan" the way he did was enough to snap him out of the mind control. So yes, in a nutshell, Friendship is Magic.[/spoiler] =p More than a bit camp, but considering how things got ramped up to srs biz by the time the episode ended, I think we can forgive them that one.[/color][/font]

    Anime Tiger & Bunny

    [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"]For me, Tiger & Bunny is something I've been waiting for. There are a lot of series that tries to approach the whole superhero genre in a new and innovative way and fail in terms of either believability or plain interest. T&B managed to do both well, and it's so, so refreshing. As Gome has said, the art and music are lovely for the series (save for Ep. 19, holy ****). The characters are pretty much amazing, though I do agree that the others could stand with a little more development. In all the episodes, the only one that hasn't gotten at least a little bit of backstory/side story love is Nathan/Fire Emblem, though I have a feeling that's due to the fact that he's gay (the producers actually had trouble finding a company that would be willing to have their logo advertised by him in the series when they were hunting around prior to production). T&B offers a lot of light-hearted fun while re-imagining just about all of the superhero staples. You can find references to past major superheroes just about anywhere you look (Superman, Batman, X-Men, just to name a few), but they don't feel trite at all. If anything, the show only suffers during the moments they slip into melodrama, but fortunately, it doesn't stay there very long. All in all, I would say that it just might be a show to break someone's gums on. There's action, comedy, drama, and an interesting world going for it. It's tons of fun and I will actually be sad when this season comes to an end. In closing, Kotetsu is a boss. That is all. [/color][/font]
  25. [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"]Five slots confirmed and six hours to go until deadline. Keep them coming, people. [/color][/font]
