Genres: Action, Comedy, School, Shounen, Supernatural, Psychological
26 episodes (2 course)
Features three separate protagonists who eventually meets by fate.
The main protagonist is a young high school boy who has an indifferent outlook on life. He is considered a genius at school, good at athletics, but only has few friends as he is considered cold. However, he has a kind heart and cares about the people he makes bonds with. One day he sees a strange girl running away from a spirit-like being. Without a second thought, he attempts to help her but only gets attacked and injured instead. The girl (who is bleeding and injured at this point) touches the boy's forehead and gives him her powers shortly before she passes away. Before her
"death", she says "your heart is what matters". From then on, this protagonist attempts to understand what she means before facing off other strange phenomenon at his school.
She is really not died, but in a coma.
The deuteragonist in the series is a young girl, who is spoiled by her parents as result of her wealth and family inheritance. She is known to be stuck up at school and the only friends she has pretends to be her friend because of her status. One day while home from school, she also sees the strange occurrence on that the main protagonist sees but hides herself during the event. After it is over, she tries to tell herself it's all a dream. Yet, someone notices that a human has seen the world of the supernatural and murders her parents. Grieving over their deaths and determined to learn the truth, she finds the main protagonist of the series and confronts him about the dark mysteries that lies beyond the school grounds.
The tritagonist in the series is a loner boy at school. He has practically no friends, talks to himself often, and more often or not, looks at the time of his watch so that he can go home from school. He is also often bullied by the other students as his father is the mayor of the city and his classmates are jealous of his status of being his son. There is a girl in the class that he likes (because she often stood up for him) but he feels that he is way out of her league. Luckily one day though, he becomes her lab partner for science class and gets the courage to ask her out. They have a fun date and talk about their problems (strangely enough, this girl also has her own problems). At the end of the date, the girl says that she doesn't have "much time left" as her "heart" will eventually worn out. A spirit being certainly appears and says "your time is here" and takes her heart out killing her. The loner boy who is scared but also furious at this point screams and is recused by the main protagonist and deuteragonist. They defeat the spirit after the loner boy (with the help of his watch) to time their attacks in synchronization. Confused with many questions that needed answers, the loner boy joins the two and is also determined to find out the mysteries behind the spirits and what is going on in their town.
Meanwhile..the girl that the main protagonist met earlier awakes from her coma and visits the tritagonist at his home one night. She tells her that "your heart has potential and beyond those walls are what matters".
The deuteragonist also meets this same girl as well later on and tells her that "life is heartless but there is hope beyond what you see".
Both these characters are later given powers as well.
Mm, not sure where else the story will go but that's all I can come up for now.
Animanga hunter extraordinaire
It would be about a true female mob boss (similar to Black Lagoon) and the lives of the men and women she hires to kill people she doesn't like. How they interact with one another and the friendships that are formed in this deep seedy underworld
Yep, I'm fucking with you
My Lovely Rapist
It's about a serial rapist whose first rape was a witch that cursed him. The curse is that every woman that he rapes falls deeply in love with him. A true tear jerker for sure as you go through his plight of trying to rape new women and the girls he is in love with keep interfering.
Yep, still fucking with you - probably gonna get some butt-hurt quotes on this one :P
A Winters Morning
It's about a man in college trying to find his way and thrust in a new environment. He falls for the wrong woman and gets his heart broken about half-way through the series. It would also be a brutal heart-break, probably sleeping with "the good friend". The protagonist wouldn't be one of those idiots that you are screaming through the screen at though and the woman would be very cool at first making the heart-break more palatable. Throughout this, he would meet some good wacky friends that would help him to get on his feet again. Eventually he would meet Mrs. Right at a poem reading the title of which is "A winters morning". The poem would be about a woodsman who got lost in a blizzard and when he is about to give up, dawn breaks through and he sees the light shining upon the snow, the beautiful colors in the clouds and finds the will to go on.
Ultra sappy but whatever.
Yep, that's my half-assed true attempt. I guess I have thames that I would like to explore more than a great story at my disposal. Part of what I liked so much about Kids On The Slope is that the friendships felt real since there were ups and downs throughout it instead of "perfect fit" like other anime. I'd like to tie the story around one of the arts as well. Something like painting, music or literature
I AM WHAT YOU NEED WHEN YOU CANT FIND ANYTHING ELSE
The Last Days
Ironically, the final great mystery to be solved by science is the human brain, and with it scientific research is quickly rendered obsolete. The development of this breakthrough has lead to a machine (aptly named the Teacher) that can impart to any human the entirety of humanity's wisdom - granting them absolute knowledge. Suddenly anyone can be as well versed in the intricacies of the most convoluted bureaucracies, as with the probabilities of the most confounding particle physics.
This comes at a time where humans number in the trillions and have colonized every pebble in the solar system, using every square meter as efficiently as universally possible. Humanity, however enlightened it now is, has morbidly calculated when it will end, and given the current state of overpopulation and consumption it is in a meagre 750 000 years.
After establishing an extensive public access system to Teaching terminals, those who have been Taught are volunteering in droves to sacrifice themselves for the longevity of the human race.
- - - -
The anime would follow the lives of various people in different situations a world like this creates: struggles with individualism, social benefits, social stigmata, various scenarios of suffering, social loafing, and other ramifications in a world with 'absolute scientific knowledge'.
Oh, and sorry for the cheesy use of capitals, "Taught", what am I thinking...
You just keep moving...
Genre: Action, Drama, Fantasy, mix of Comedy
Studio: Key/Visual Arts (There work is phenomenal)
Takes place in modern-day Japan.
Basic premise revolves around the fact that humans are capable of "unlocking" supernatural abilities that the brain has locked away to prevent humans from becoming God-like.
The show revolves around a group of 13 freedom fighters that basically act as superheroes to protect society. The Japanese government knows of this group, but denies their existence.
The 13 Tengu "ninja" dress very GQ during the day, and wear a more modern-day ninja outfit during operations. They have formed a brotherhood and named their group Tengu XIII - 'Tengu' being chosen to pay homage to Japanese Folklore for supernatural creatures, and 'XIII' being used because of the number of members.
The Tengu XIII have also agreed that even though they unlocked and mastered supernatural abilities, they WILL NOT pass on the knowledge or recruit anyone into their ranks, therefore, the members have to watch each other's backs and protect society to the best of their abilities while they are around. The lead Tengu (Captain) would be the calm, collective character that sees equality amongst the team, and actually hates being referred to as the Captain, in fact, he utilizes a round table at HQ due to be inspired by King Arthur folklore.
The show will air no more than 60 episodes. All members utilize typical ninja tools such as: swords, kunai, caltrops, and smoke bombs. Their abilities include: heightened senses, super speed and agility, and increased intelligence.
If anyone here has ever watched Smallville, it's a similar premise, trying to be a hero in a world where people do not believe in them.
My anime would be called, "Olive"
It would be loosely based on Oliver Twist. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure it would be comedic and slice of life.
So many own made I don't know where to begin.
I'd love to see a mech assault anime, with the word of blake and whole planet invasions.
SAVE THE DALEKS!!
About Detective Rabanne, chasing a serial killer whom has announced the intended target and time. Which is out of character for the killer and will make her 13th victim. With the help of Child 12th, the previous victim whom survived, and Dunhill, a serial killer Rabanne put away, as his partner, hunt the serial Killer Mother before she strikes again.
The story would be mostly black and white with colour being used for a key reference or sudden cliffhanger/plot twist.
SAVE THE DALEKS!!
A series set 5 years after the zombie outbreak. The hordes are disappearing but so are outposts and recon teams. The heroes learn that the zombies are not dying out but evolving. Different types control the freshly converted forms while devouring the weaker forms to enhance their own powers.
The main arc shows them being hunted by 5 beings that control several hordes, a unified alliance of the strongest zombies, yet they are individuals that statically attack humans.
SAVE THE DALEKS!!
The Dark Trains/Tracks.
Still haven't decided on the name. A touring rock band stop off where the hero, who is homeless, broke and starving, finds the will to live with their music. Only he stumbles on the members secrets. A necromancer with powers over tattoos, brother/sister werewolves, a witch who can't cast spells and a vampire that hates the smell of blood.
Instead of memory wiping/killing him, they find he's the best drummer for their band. After a few misadventures, the hero ends up infected with a curse. When enraged or emotionally pushed beyond his limits, he becomes a flame demon, melting everything in his reach.
He learns to control the power, which scares most because he's the only one to have lasted this long, let alone master it to his abilities.
The group travel with their own train, since this world only has train tracks as it's main transportation, The World also knows nothing about the true nature of monsters and demons ruling them in plain sight.
SAVE THE DALEKS!!
I dont think Ao no Exorcist is unpopular, there is a movie coming after all... also, Bleach, One Piece and Naruto arent really better names.
Mr. Stealyogirl aka King Koopa. ;)
Story Idea #1:
Rise & Fall (Krewella Remix) by Adventure Club ft. Krewella http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T70VeonTrLc
The concept of a higher power. Angels. God. Whatever you want to call it. This story idea is based on a few things I gathered from educational and entertainment material. The story is basically about people, primarily focusing on children, who have died before experiencing all they need to in life. They are sent to somewhere with no initial memory of their past life except perhaps overtime through headaches and flashes, bits of memory, from encounters with other people or they could have possibly figured it out all on their own without outside influence. It varies between each character who is designated a 'Wingless', so to speak an Angel who has yet to earn their wings. The plot really focuses on one of these 'Wingless' children and her determination to earn her wings. To earn their wings the Wingless have to descend back down to Earth and help a designated child with their problems, to put it simply. But there is a catch because while they are all trying to earn their wings they are also given a second chance at life, to experience it. Another twist is once they have finished their assignment they are given an option to become a true 'Wingless', as in an Angel without wings who is forced to remain on Earth forever or become a 'Winged' which is an Angel with wings who can only remain on Earth for tasks given to them by their superiors. This means that that Wingless can live a second life on Earth permanently if they choose to remain Wingless but they would be mortal with extended lifespans unlike the Winged who are ageless and also wouldn't gain any powers. The Wingless and Winged don't bleed instead when injured they emit a blinding light from their wound and anyone who touches it without their permission would get searing burns on that part of their body. The Wingless as with the Winged can change forms (as in their age and only the Wingless who as trying to earn their wings can do this) at will to accomplish their tasks and are also allowed to help each other but can't decide how another should handle their task, it's up to that Wingless or Winged alone. They each also have individual artificial helpers (think small flying AI that can fit in the palm of your hand) that they can consult and inquire certain things with.
Avariella Poretti - Main character. Narrator. Italian. Poretti is a new Wingless who has yet to earn her wings. She is brash and likes to speak her mind but is also insightful and caring when she chooses to be. Her memory is locked and therefore she doesn't know about her past early on in the story. When she does gain bits of it back she gets a migraine, collapses, and then blacks out. Has two alternate identities she goes by which are Aurelia Piccoli and Ali Piccoli. Her designated child is Amarante Mikomi and her AI helper is named Paolino.
Aimee Belrose - Major character. French. Belrose is a Wingless with a bossy and somewhat self-centered attitude. Aimee developed a bubble around her mind to keep herself from others and to hide her true self, which is hidden for most of the story. Sometimes her true self does slip up and comes to the surface before it is fully revealed later in the story. She has yet to earn her wings and her memory from the beginning of the story is fully unlocked but she doesn't tell anyone or show significant signs of it. Her designated child is Margot Morel and her AI helper is named Adeline.
Cindy Estrada - Major character. American. Estrada is a six year old human who Aurelia lives with. She ran away from home because of the harsh and abusive nature of her parents. Always quick to like others and is very energetic. Has trouble pronouncing certain words, a fascination with shiny things (in particular quarters), and the Tooth Fairy. Thinks of Aurelia as an older sister and wants to meet Aurelia's younger sister Ali. She doesn't know that Aurelia and Ali are actually the same person (Avariella) just different ages.
Amarante Mikomi - Major character. Japanese. Fifteeen year old human of Japanese descent with glasses who is also Avariella's designated child. She is very shy and reserved but is outgoing and forceful when she needs to be. Very knowledgeable but doesn't show it or boast about it. Becomes friends with Ali really quickly and has met her older sister Aurelia a few times. Knows that Avariella and Ali are the same person but acts like they just look very similar. Wants to be friends with Aimee really badly as well, always dragging her to hang out together.
Sophia Soto - Major character. Japanese/Spanish. A teacher at Auckland International with a very laid-back and joking personality though she is very intelligent about most things in life and can figure things out quickly. She is actually a true Wingless that decided to stay on Earth and acts as a friend and mentor to everyone in the story. Grows fond of Cindy and gets together very well with her. Knows what Avariella, Flora, and Aimee really are and quickly deduces each of their characters. She still has her AI helper which is named Damita who she calls Dami for short.
Flora Shelsher - Major character. British. Yet to earn her wings she is a Wingless with a bubbly and excitable personality. Underneath her personality is a darker and more solmen one. Her memory like Avariella's is locked but she knows more about her past than Avariella does at the beginning but she never talks about it but instead gives hints and implications on what it is. Doesn't do well with stuck-up or rich people but does her best to tolerate them. Her designated child is Lenin Hughes and her AI helper is named Lovette.
Mr. Hideyoshi - Minor character. Japanese. Aged Sushi shop owner and Avariella's boss. He watches Cindy from time to time and gives advice to anyone who needs it.
Margot Morel - Minor character. French. Aimee's designated child. Very proper and kind, somewhat outlying.
Lenin Hughes - Minor character. New Zealander European/Australian. Flora's designated child. Outgoing and annoying to most people.
Tayten Poretti - Minor character. Italian. Avariella's human older brother. A very caring and fragile person, blames himself for his sister's death and subsequently his family's breaking apart.
Prudence Wright - Minor character. British. Waitress at Mr. Hideyoshi's shop who Cindy and Avariella live with. Shy and not forceful.

Excerpt from Wingless:
"....Again, Mikomi nudged me on the shoulder but this time to say 'Cut it out'. The atmosphere at the table with Aimée there was surprisingly calm. It wasn't at all tense like I imagined with the way me and her have been getting along. Though it wasn't so calm that we were all best buddies because Mikomi was sitting very close to my left and Aimée in front of her on the other side of the table. The reason being all the earlier courage Amarante coughed up could barely even be considered tonsillolith now and Aimée didn't want to sit anywhere near me. After all, to her I was just the 'Saucisse italienne sur la pizza pain français' and not the 'Saucisse italienne farcies pain français'. I just sat there eating my meal of noodles, again (they were remarkablely fine noodles what could I say?), and minded my own business. Mikomi, on other hand, kept glancing between me and Aimée like she was waiting for something to happen. Bread-roll never looked up from her food to even notice and good thing because she would have barked at her to stop with the quick stares. The only thing Aimée did was later ask if anyone wanted her drink because she disliked over-sized soft drinks, especially the grape flavored ones. With Mikomi now too shy to answer I offered to take it. Belrose slide it across the table with her fork towards me like it was some kind of foul substance that would cause her to melt if she came into direct contact with it. She must really hate over-sized soft drinks. The rest of the lunch period went by silently after that as we all finished our food. First to get done was Aimée who acted like it was a race to see who could take the quickest mouthfuls without breathing apparently and in second was me with Mikomi in dead last third place. I thought she was actually dead for a minute because she had hardly touched her food and her chopstick hand was convulsing slightly. Before she got up Aimée thanked us for the meal and took her sweet time walking to the trash can, like a princess. It seemed she wasn't so stuck-up that she was above common courtesy – and by common I mean very common...."

It's set in a futuristic near apocalyptic world seventeen years after said tyrannical power had unleashed mass destructive weapons on the Earth's populace and announced it's ulterior motive of conquering all. The two siblings escaped from this tyrannical power's grip and were drafted into the organized resistance. The organized resistance is called the N.E.O.(stands for New Earth Odyssey) that aims to take down this tyrannical power called the Salvation Alliance and free conquered nations. The Salvation Alliance consists of world powers wanting to gain a share of controlling the Earth and have a mutual agreement with each other. Racial and political grudges hamper both sides to some extent and infighting is more common than it should be, though isolated.

Excerpt from Emancipation Provenance:
"....The prospect of piloting a real life mechanized war machine sent a blaze of excitement down Akihiko's spine; in contrast, it send a shiver of dread down Eriko's. He was thrilled to operate something he's only seen on patrols outside the walls of the their - escaped from - relocation camp. Gazing at the sheer size of them: nearly seven meters tall and armed to the teeth in anti-personnel, anti-tank, and anti-aircraft weaponry, he marveled at the immense power that resonated from them. On the other hand, Eriko saw the pure terror inducing and destructive capabilities that such a massive machine could do and she was afraid. Afraid, she was against the idea of having a young child pilot a metal war machine the size of a two story building. Not forgetting to mention that it was her own blood that would be piloting it, who couldn't grasp the plain fact that they were dangerous, she was very against the idea and promptly voiced her belief. Lieutenant General Lerwick noted her concern with a nod as he cleared his throat to offer an explanation to the decision, his arms clasped behind his back.
"As a part of the New Earth Odyssey, no matter how young or old, we need every able body that we can. The concern you have for your younger sibling is admirable, but I regret to inform you that he will be the secondary designated pilot of one of our mechanized armored units and that he will be put into danger at some point. I am confident that this young man will be able to handle anything that crosses his path; whether it be dangerous or not."
At this news Eriko turned a bit pale and glanced to Lieutenant Eberstark who nodded her head in approval of the Lieutenant General's decision and offered her own insight into the matter.
"Shizuka, as the Lieutenant General said, will be fine as long as he is capable of his own strengths and aware of his own weaknesses. Not to mention, he is the secondary designated pilot, not the first. These machines are designed to be piloted by two people: one to maintain and watch the stability of its systems and the other to concentrate on movement and operating the various forms of weaponry." She formed a reassuring smile as she put her hand on Eriko's shoulder, "Shizuka, you must have more faith in your brother's abilities as a pilot."
Eriko took Lieutenant Eberstark's hand in hers and squeezed hard, the warmth of Eberstark's hand giving her extra reassurance that what she said was the truth. She only hoped that that truth was the right one...."
Story Idea #3:
You Got to Go (Seven Lions Dubstep Remix) by Above & Beyond http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=506NS0tDylw
Title: Idol Discovery
Deduction stories and murder mysteries, detectives and serial killers. Stories of grandeur, of glamor, and of living your dreams. That's what this story is about. A team of detectives is investigating into the gruesome deaths of local artists that all have some sort of connection. Some factor that draws them all together and points to one ending dot; their killer. He has racked up a multitude of newspaper articles and television broadcasts in his name; which nobody knows. That's because nobody can catch him, but two detectives on the team are determined to stop his killings once and for all. These two detectives draw others to their cause outside of their team and pair up to gather evidence and clues on this artistic killer. Can they stop his rampage before it becomes too big?
Leo Ansell - Main Character. Greek-American. Ansell is one of the two detectives determined to undermine the unknown killer's efforts at thinning the number of artists in the world. He lets his emotions affect him more than his partner and he's not afraid to hunt down any potential suspects no matter how much evidence is weighed against them. Prone to fits of anger and passion, he often does things without thinking of the consequences.
Naomi Hamada - Major Character. Secondary Narrator. Japanese-American. Detective Naomi is the other of the two detectives set on catching the unknown murderer. Of the two of them she is better at controlling her emotions and staying calm in most stressful situations. She keeps her partner in check as well as gathering clues and evidence on the killer more-so than her partner before engaging in anything. Determined to not let her emotions get to her on jobs, she suppresses most of her feelings and tries to comfort those affected around her.
Kat St. Carney - Major Character. French-American. Kat is a civilian interested in the case that the two detectives are pursuing about the artist killer. She butts her way into the investigation and gathers information about the killer from her sources and observations. It helps that she is an upstart idol singer because her contacts are more than most, but that also generates a lot of problems.
Cal Barret. Minor Character. German-American. A young girl who idolizes Kat and isn't afraid to show it. She gets involved in the case as well after following Kat around.
Janet de Moraal - Minor Character. French-American. Kat's doctor who also offers insight into the case and gives hints and advice on the killer's motives. She also helps care for members working on the case and charges them a discount for her services on Kat's request.
Apo Castellanos - Minor Character. Spanish-American. Another member of the team of detectives working on the case of the artist killer. He gathers info along with Naomi but isn't as invested in the case as her or her partner.
