Ever wondered what the creators of manga and anime were like? I was watching black butler season 3 when i started thinking how could someone think this story up and scenarios and ending like that? for example the creator of Deathnote? How does one think randomly of a guy killing ppl with a notebook? kind of Sadistic. Or fullmetal alchemist? what are these people even like to think of something like this half dog half girl?! What are your thoughts?

Are they on shrooms? how does any of the characters from DbZ get even created? Ever seen an anime and your like dammmn how does someone think of this and make it into a story?! Give some anime examples of anime that are just like wtf? This is just random but anything goes. ......


For ex this anime idk how ppl even think of this?!

bobobobobobo!

I had thought this same thing while watching Excel Saga and again while watching GantZ!

I had the chance to meet Jhonen Vasquez after reading some of his works and watching Invader Zim. I had asked half jokingly where he comes up with his ideas and stories. He told me from his daughter here and there, he was serious too.

So I believe that we all have strange and wacky thoughts, some people can expand on them and create art from them.
In America we don't have Manga like Asia, if we did I am sure we would have many things that would compete with the Japanese.

Some people are more creative than others. They like telling stories and if money can be made that's a plus!

Manga and anime creators are just creative people. That's all. They're just like western fiction writers like R.L. Stine or J.K. Rowling only with creative art. Although, whoever created BoboboHoweverManyBosThereAre was clearly on drugs.

maybe unique when it comes to the animation but the ideas themselves you can gather from different media and mostly research into books, put these into a pot and stir

If you think about anything too much or too hard, it becomes weird. In all seriousness though, yes, they are all on shrooms.

As a writer myself... my goal is to write about an idea that inspired me. When I was younger, I would think up of many different love stories, but now that I'm older, I'm more inspired by sci-fi writing.

When you feel so passionate about something that words would flow endlessly on paper. I think most adults have difficulties being passionate about something other than sex. We've lost our creativity and we like to stick to routine and norms.

___________

Writers get inspired by different things; just because we write about rape or murder or about underage sex, it doesn't mean we're into those things. They are simply inspiration to our storytelling... how can we explore those situations or express a character's anguish and experience. I love movies like 'the girl with the dragon tattoo' (original version), where it explores the dark sides of human behaviour... it's realistic to me...


My writing philosophy is... 'i write to entertain myself first and foremost, I dont write to entertain others'


I'm a selfish writer in that respect. If I can't laugh at my own jokes, I can't continuing writing the story.

Seven. There's seven.

A set of three, a set of two, then another set of two.

BoBoBo-BoBo-BoBo.

As for something more on-topic, I've heard that stories are more a culmination of multiple ideas spinning around inside of you. You only get a story once all these different pieces come together. A single idea can be a character or a scene, a plot, or anything in between. As for the ideas themselves, that's hardcore neuroscience that will probably take another century to understand.

The words in this post are not meant to be taken seriously. I've done a lot of drugs in my life-time and this is all meant to be a HUGE joke... The words typed are accidentally placed in a random string generator, ran a million gazillion times and happened to find their organization interesting and decided to post the random structures in this thread, thus I shall take no responsibility with what-ever words, phrases, etc etc that this post contains! Also, I'm an idiot..

Baka? Baka! baka :(

When you hear a lot of artist talk about "rock bottom," typically it's what they figured out while on drugs.

DRUGS?!?

Yeah, but not only that...maybe its a bit deeper like the UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE!

What? Now, you're crazy.

Let's take a look at some of the popular Anime (One Piece, Dragonball, Naruto, Fairy Tale...) and add Drug References to them.

Dragonball (Meth, just look at the power ups... hell, they take at least 2 or 3 episodes to power up...)
One Piece (Massive Combination: not only in the art style, but directly related to the characters...):
Luffy=Meth,Zoro=Marijuana,Sanji=Cocaine,Robin=LSD,Chopper=Ecstasy,Brook=Heroin
Naruto and Fairy Tale follow the same pattern...

Now, just calling out as DRUGS is only one way to view it. What about world events?
Yeah, just to keep things interesting...

While I was on some really trippy shit, I saw what One Piece was trying to communicate!

Actually, I have like 3 notepad's filled with references to world events that actually predicted the future (and I know what WILL happen in the future, even if the writers don't!)

----
Wow dude, you must really hate these shows to bash them like this... not cool.
NO! It's the opposite! I LOVE these shows with a DEEP BURNING PASSION!!!!!!
That's why I've done as much research that any demon could.

OH! So, you're one of those guys who thinks he's a demon? Yeah, sure... why not.
While your at it, throw an insanity sticker on my face.
----
I'd like to add one more thing about One Piece; the ending. Now, I think we all have done enough research to know that at the end of OP there will be a Tree...of some sort.
Yeah, this stupid boring tree... or is it?

Well, without me giving you the answer, where do you think Oda got his material from?
NO! I'm not saying he copied, I'm talking about the Universal Language here...
Google: Yggdrasil

Wait...that kinda makes since, but...how did you figure that out?
What book was mentioned before going into Skypiea?
Er, okay then how did you figure all this out Onee-san?
This one's a doozie, and it's actually REALLY interesting...

What is Brook famous for?
THE PANTIES!!!
YES! Er, wait NO! Well, okay but what else?
45 Degree Angle!
Wait, that's not really important...it's just something stupid/funny that he does...
When has One Piece ever been stupid? Okay fine, I'll give you another Google phrase: 45 degree slope information theory

Dude, that's like some bleeding edge shit...how did you figure this out?
Figure what out? I thought I was crazy...

It's going to take me awhile to process whatever it is that I just read.
