I love the catamaran, but I do wonder about the parallax layers.

Still, it's your game and it looks great overall, so do what you want, but I'd at least like to see a screenshot with correct background shading.

as far as the 10 year old storylines, I agree, it would be nice to have mature themes (in a literary sense) addressed on a more regular basis (and not just the run-of-the-mill "shock of death" and "who am I and what is my purpose?" conflicts, I mean really fleshed out storylines that take on complicated issues the way great films do.)

Eek. That sounds like Wolf's Rain. :P The ending was completely horrible.

As a side note, my dad watches Bleach. And I'm not the bastard child of a ten-year-old.

Bleach is pretty much my only Shounen anime, besides FMA.

I wish there was a show or animated film which, like some of the old movies from the 30's and 40's, PAY ATTENTION to what people can and cannot do.  chase scenes in which people can only jump a few short feet, or where jumping out a window breaks legs, or where the actor actually spends 100% of his time carrying his possessions rather than merely producing them at the opportune moment.  Haversacks and canteens are needed for simple day-trips, the inability to carry a 8r0d5w0rd in their pocket is a real issue, etc.  I don't want to watch the characters piss, but it would be so much better if they had more human and less superhuman qualities about them.

In something like, say, Naruto? I agree. People often leave craters in various stone/wood objects and quickly pick themselves up and continue fighting. Bleach is something else, though. Bleach is much more superhero. It's got a whole 'I'm so badass I can cut buildings apart' that isn't half as painful as most anime make it; that show has some serious punk attitude, which makes the enormous-sword-toting pretty cool in comparison to Cloud who may or may not be male. Such scenes have completely ruined the series of late, though. When they were more infrequent, the series was awesome.

Oh, and FMA had very little filler; even the side episodes like the Lust/Lujon romance still served a purpose - namely, fleshing out the thinner characters.

An anime with great animation and design was Fullmetal Alchemist. Naturally, being Shounen anime, the faces were square-ish and the eyes were enormous, but the characters were usually distinctive enough to tell them apart at a glance, and most of the characters wore the same uniform. The designs were really simple, too.

Anime really doesn't bother me; when it's done correctly, it usually looks quite nice (Ghibli!). However, there's a lot of Tsubasa Reservoir (probably the most painful show I've ever laid eyes upon). There are a number of great-looking anime out there, though. You just have to dig.

anime is sure as hell overrated, but there a lot out there thats actually quite good imo.

That's like saying that sci-fi or fantasy is overrated; there are good shows in any genre. That, and every genre is flooded with more bad than good anyway. We've got all kinds of shit on the Sci-fi channel, but we also have Doctor Who and Firefly; likewise, we have fifteen thousand Dragon Ball Zs, but we also have Paranoia Agent and Death Note.

I know you said that there are some good ones, but calling a genre 'overrated' is just too broad.

But, yes, we need less Yu-Gi-Oh! and Dragon Ball getting the attention. On a side note, large hairstyles don't bother me much, but Cloud looks simply horrid outside Advent Children, in which he was actually in some freakish way almost normal.

@Ryu: Holy shit that's some serious awesome. The head reminds me a lot of the kid from Paranoia Agent (Li'l Slugger in the english dub, forget what he is in Japanese). The shading is pretty damn impressive.

Wow. I'm in the middle of watching Stargate SG-1 reruns and eating dinner.

Eeeh, I'm not a big Stargate fan myself. I'm more of a Firefly fan. And I only saw two episodes. :P

Soooo...who else is hyped about The Golden Compass? :D

Sure i`m not mind ;) Your work is better than mine. But i think you should ask me about it before you put that pixelart here. Good job! Probably i`ll delete my work now.

I meant to say that I was just showing it, not entering it.

Otherwise it feels like a waste, just letting it sit somewhere on my computer.

I think it's cute. The shading looks great. It'd be cool to see it with a more interesting background. ;)
