Probably something akin to what I'm writing; a supernatural/action/romance. I want to add slice of life to that but instead there'll probably just be far too many filler episodes.

I've always had an idea for a slice-of-life/comedy with a touch of supernatural in the form of spirit sharing a body with the heroine. One thing I thought would be fun would be having semi-detailed background characters (not even just a few like every background character) who may or may not enter the plot later at some point (ex. A cashier at a store who never gets any speaking line for the first few seasons ends up being the main heroine's best friend later in the plot).

Hmmm, I would say history/action/psychology cause there's a book I am writing however if this was for anime then I would pick either a mafia/shoujo ai and / or slice of life/seinen/ a hint of comedy.

Action/Tragedy/Romance

Had enough of all the 12 episode slice of life anime. I need suspense! SUSPENSE!!!

mine would be based off a dream i had where a couple were john and jane does and they go on an adventure not knowing who they are but they have supernatural powers. and it would be more action in it, but still have some very sad parts and funny moments. and they lived in a world where creatures and humans lived amongst each other. and the score would be nothing but heavy metal!!!

Hm, I was thinking it'd be cool to make a shonen anime taking place during the ancient Aztec Empire

The main character would be this boy who lived on the outskirts of the Empire in a tribe of cannibalistic natives who wore wolf skins and could turn themselves into wolves. He eats humans, but he's also curious about them especially humans living in big cities.

He would journey to the largest Aztec city out of curiosity but would create havoc as soon as he entered the city on account of him clearly belonging to a tribe of cannibals.

He would be saved by a girl who holds a high position on the Aztec government's council, a girl who has the powers of the phionex, so she can control fire and heal herself by setting herself on fire. She looks fourteen but she's actually much much older on account of burning herself and starting her own life over many times. She is the oldest person in the empire and is therefore on the council.

And I guess it would be about how they help each other. Like she would show him around the human world and he would be her gateway to good diplomatic relations with the cannibals, so the cannibal wolf tribe would eat fewer Aztecs and more of enemy tribes and whatnot.

So like a drama/fantasy thing. And I somehow want to work in a bunch of fight scene with people using magical powers, so it'd be kinda shonen-y. The anime I feel would be closest to this would be Shaman King.

I vote for this. Depending on how strict your definition is, I can't think of anything since Lodoss

Barring that, Id like to see the first 2-3 episodes of Total Eclipse hacked off from the rest of it and turned into a full series.


What is meant by high fantasy, exactly?


Wikipedia has a less strict definition than me but I tend to restrict it to a standard LotR archetype, if you try add a "twist" or mix genres then then it becomes something else like medieval fantasy, low fantasy, sword & sorcery etc. Just semantics really.....

So something akin to ye olde' D&D? Kinda?


I'd be down for that honestly. But it'd have to be the older D&D stuff... the newer stuff is getting... fancier... and I just have not gotten used to it at all.

I'm down with the adventure/fantasy type. I'm looking for a mix of stuff we get from Super Mario Galaxy and Tsubasa Chronicles.

Physiological tragedy anime. Merge the psychological aspects of Code Geass and Death Note with the tragedy elements of Attack on Titan. Profit.

Yeah, pretty much. I know what you mean about the newer stuff, I tried the Neverwinter MMO when it launched and one of my first reactions was "Why is Mask floating in the sky over there?". Pretty much anything from the spellplague on I am completely unfamiliar with......
