devilman 4th wall

It’s time to get serious. I sometimes hear that so much power lies in the hands of us fans. I want to believe it too. But instead of waiting to be proven right, I’ll SEIZE POWER WITH MY OWN HANDS.

I won’t be greedy with it too! Today, here in this post, I share the power with all of you: THE POWER TO CHANGE THE VERY FABRIC OF ANIME WORLDS. THE POWER TO MAKE ANIME AWESOME. Is your anime already awesome? MAKE IT AWESOMER.

Don’t waste the power I share with you today. GET IT BY YOUR HANDS!

Let us begin.

uwolf_guy_v01_159

Here is the structure of the rite:

Name your character, or characters from a single anime.

Take an ability, item, or character from a completely different anime.

Add something from your own imagination, dreams, or desires.

AWESOMENESS.

Now name your new anime show.

I will lead.

Nekki Basara, from Macross 7

RahXephon, from RahXephon

Enable RahXephon to transform into a bird.

Macross: Bird Human Galactic Tour

That’s what you can do with the POWER. Can you FEEL IT?

Azusa, Ui, Jun, from K-ON!!

Mylene Jenius, from Macross 7

Ton-chan becomes MECHA-TON-CHAN and becomes their tour bus.

K-ON!!! After School Fire Bomber

    from one anime: mizunashi akari
    from another anime: himemiya chikane
    from my dreams: kozue amano writes a spinoff of aria wherein akari goes to the moon.

    ’nuff said.

  2. Free Planets Alliance cast (LOGH)
    Maria “Momokan” Momoe (Big Wind Up!)
    An unconfident, shy Yang wants to pitch.
    Legend of Gakuen Heroes: Iserholm Koshien

    Hilda von Mariendorf + Imperial Admirlty (LOGH)
    Haruhi Fujioka (Ouran High School Host Club)
    Hilda enrolls in recently gender integrated academy because its in walking distance to her house and accidentally joins a military otaku /astronomy club filled with bishonen though techinacally a host club.
    Odin High Host Club Gaiden

    lastly…

    Julien Minci (LOGH)
    Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (TTGL)
    You know where this is going…
    Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Spiral Labyrinth-hen

    Basically I wouldn’t mind seeing any LOGH cast members in a school setting… or scratch that in any setting. I just had newtype thought of Reinhard dressed as Char shooting a bazooka at Braunshwieg “Blame this on the misfortune of your birth!”

    I don’t know if this is what you were looking for but it was very fun. Great idea Ghostlightning.

    p.s.- mad props for wolfenguy

  3. >Nekki Basara, from Macross 7
    >RahXephon, from RahXephon
    >Enable RahXephon to transform into a bird.
    >REIDEEN WITH NEKKI BASARA

    Fixed. As for mine:

    Touma, from To Aru Majutsu no Index
    That immortality elixir from Baccano
    Maybe give him a gun too
    Result: TOUMA KILLS EVERYTHING

    • Rakuen says:

      Words cannot describe how much I approve of your idea.

    • It wasn’t b0rk3n Y U FIXIT?

      As for your your show, please make Touma’s first trio of victims Mssrs. Katz Kobayahi, Hathaway Noa, and Saji Crossroad.

      • Skribulous says:

        >It wasn’t b0rk3n Y U FIXIT?

        Because RahXephon is just a Tondo/Danao/(insert region known for making facsimiles) Reideen knockoff.

        • I’ve never been impressed with ripoff/knockoff accusations. Maybe it’s because I think to rip off or knockoff something is negative, as if there was some malice, or at least an inability to come up with something different and the creators are forced to copy or steal.

          What’s more likely to me is that the creators really liked Reideen and perhaps Evangelion, and used them as strong influences and inspiration for their work, the same way Macross used Yamato and Gundam.

    Mazinger Z
    Make it a dual-piloted mecha.

    I would watch the hell out of this and swoon at HOT-BLOODED MECHA PILOT MIYAWZAWA

  8. bluemist says:

    Take all these mahou shoujo character leads:
    Sakura (CCS)
    Amu (Shugo Chara)
    Usagi (Sailormoon)
    Nagisa and Honoka (Pretty Cure)

    Arm them with K-ON instruments:
    Sakura (lead vocals and guitar)
    Amu (bass)
    Usagi (backup guitar)
    Honoka (keyboards)
    Nagisa (drums)

    Title: Magical Tea Time

    Wait a minute, this is not awesome if it were just a normal highschool setting. What if we incorporate… ZOMBIES?

    Title: Magical Tea Time Highschool of the Dead

    It wouldn’t be awesome if I didn’t explain that the instruments can transform into weapons:
    Gitah: Aside from Left 4 Dead style guitar bashing, it fires PINK LAZERS at every strum.
    Elizabeth: Aside from transforming into an AUG HBAR Machinegun, it develops anti-zombie UHF EMP signal which makes stuff explode from their insides with gore similar to Elfen Lied.
    Backup Gitah: It transforms into the Spear of Longinus and Usagi transforms herself to look like the Black Rock Shooter.
    Keyboard: Honoka is a normal girl but she’s the only one who can control the time-alterting function of the keyboard. The lower the note, the slower time goes, and vice versa. Achievement unlock for her will be actual time travel near the end of the first season.
    Drum Set: Hmm… let’s just make Nagisa pure strength and GAR, throwing drums and stuff to the zombies, although she needs Honoka to slow time for Nagisa to gather her ammo.

  9. Rakuen says:

    Maybe, I’m just not cut out for this. Second attempt.

    Jessie, James, & Meowth
    The ability to steal absolutely anything. (King of Bandit Jing)
    Dr. Seuss
    How Team Rocket Stole Christmas

  10. f0calizer says:

    1) Taiga Aisaka (Toradora)
    2) Shinsei Industries YF-19 Advanced Variable Fighter (Macross Plus)
    3) Taiga graduates from high school, dumps Ryuuji, and joins the UN Spacy. Objective: Make Macross II canon with a more interesting female lead than Silvie Gena.
    4) Awesome Anime Title: …

    Macross Plusu Plusu Dakedo Minusu! (Ok, I admit, this was just a chance to play with the Pre-Parade lyrics, eh-heh…)

  11. drmchsr0 says:

    Terrible idea 1:
    1) Char Aznable, Amuro Rey and A MYSTERIOUS MS PILOT, KNOWN ONLY AS “THE COG” (He’s actually Shiro Amada, but no one really cares…)
    2) Mobile Suits (every Gundam ever)
    3) Top Gear (YES THAT BBC SHOW WITH THE CARS AND THE JEREMY CLARKSON AND WHATNOT)

    IT WILL BE CALLED “RED GEAR”, AND IT WILL BE HILARIOUS. ALSO FEATURING GUNTANKS FLYING THROUGH SPACE.

    Terrible idea 2:
    1) JUNICHIRO KOIZUMI
    2) PATLABOR
    3) …FIGHTING GODZILLA IN TOKYO

    I SHALL DUB THIS MONSTORSITY “GODZILLA VERSUS KOIZUMI”.

    Terrible idea 3:
    1) TETSUYA KOUJI
    2) REPLACING THE DIPSHIT MAIN CHARAACTER IN AMAGAMI SS
    3) FEATURING THE ONE AND ONLY MOGRA, IN WHICH TETSUYA KOUJI INHERITS THE NIGHTCLUB FROM HIS UNCLE DJ YAMA. AND THERE’S PROBABLY DATING AND STUFF, BUT WHO CARES.

    “AMAGAMI GROOVIN’ MAGIC.”

    Terrible idea 4:
    1) TK (Angel Beats)
    2) Discovers the wonderful world of cute bacteria (Moyashimon)
    3) AND THEN HE DISCOVERS THAT THEY BECOME A SUPER ROBOT.

    “TK Discovers That Cute Bacteria Kick Heavy Metal Butt”. Because I’m bad at naming.

  12. Skribulous says:

    Fine, I’ll play your game:

    1) Makoto Kinno (The Girl Who Leaped Through Time)
    2) Heybo (Heroman)
    3) Post-movie, Makoto stumbles upon Heybo, giving her the ability to “timeleap”–which she uses along with Heroman to battle alien invaders IN THE PAST TO SAVE THE FUTURE, time paradoxes be dammed (Mysterious Stranger-Who-Turns-Out-To-Be-Her-Love-Interest giving her occasional help FROM THE FUTURE optional–also, FINAL ARC will be the revelation that it is her constant time travels that was the reason the aliens invaded in the first place WHAT A TWEEEST).

    Title: ヒーロータイム (HīrōTime)

    Bonus: Me (for thinking this shit up), You (for giving us this idea) and Stan Lee (because he can) has random cameos in every episode.

  13. Chrisa says:

    1- Kyouko, Sho and Ren from Skip Beat!
    2- Evangelion Units
    3- Kyouko unleashes her inner demons and utter rage upon Shotarou in a way to best heal her damaged heart: ripping him limb from limb in Eva Unit 01 while he’s in Unit 00. She also causes the 3rd impact from all the evil within her and restarts the world. Then she and Ren get it on as the new Adam and Eve. Perfect! I would fund it.

    and another

    1- Sousuke Sagara from Full Metal Panic
    2- Setting would be Death Note world
    3- He ends up shooting everyone he suspects of being Kira. Story ends faster. Yes!

  14. Specialist290 says:

    I feel kind of silly coming into this as late as I am.

    1. Lelouch Lamperouge / vi Britannia (Code Geass)
    2. The “Solar Hands” of Kazuma Azuma (Yakitate!! Japan)
    3. Take the “World’s Largest Pizza” of the School Festival episode and make it the focus of the series.

    Title: “Code Yakitate!!: Pizza Chef of the Rebellion”
    One man’s quest to depose his tyrannical father and bring world peace by making THE SINGLE MOST AWESOME PIZZA IN ALL OF EXISTENCE (with giant mecha).

  15. Reid says:

    Idea I
    1. The Sailor Senshi- Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto and Minako + Tuxedo Mask (Sailor Moon)
    2. Nobel Gundam-style MS (Mobile Fighter G Gundam)
    3. mma-style training from hell (with plenty of lean, toned up hawt chicks)
    and you get…
    “Bishojo Mobile Fighter Sailor Moon” – high school girls who are not only students of different martial arts styles train to enter the Gundam Fight, an event they’ve dreamed of participating in since they were young. They start off as rivals but eventually come together to fight off the invaders returning from centuries of deep space colonization. This involves lots of awesome fight choreography but on the ground and from the cockpit of mobile suits. Makoto (my favorite character) gets at least a couple of episodes to really shine even if she isn’t the focal point of the show, and just to satisfy my preferences, she is the muay thai expert of the group. This would not be a “panty-fighter” of the Tenjou Tenge or Battle Vixens ilk. More like a serious(ly awesome!) fight anime with some super-robot martial arts thrown in for good measure, though of course the chicks are super-fine.

    Idea II
    1. The characters of the original Mobile Suit Gundam
    2. The style and setting of Ace Combat, with super-advanced planes in this case replacing mobile suits
    3. AMBAC-enabling fins, wings and “binders on the space planes” – “realistic” dogfights in space

    …there we go. Pretty self-explanatory. I haven’t thought of a name for it, but instead of Gundam, Guntank etc. the main jet (a blank-slate prototype different variants suited for various environments) is called the, what else, Core Fighter, which is equipped with the “GUN” system, and the different variants are the GUNSaber, GUNCannon and GUNBomber or some such. Instead of Zakus they’re Suzakus, so the Zeon-ish forces all use the Guardian Beasts for their naming conventions. I think this would be pretty cool in an Ace Combat/Area 88/Yukikaze kind of way.

    • Reid says:

      Oh snap, IDEA III:
      1. Lynchman an Johnnyboy (Red Line) get hired by the…
      2. Titans (Z Gundam) to…
      3. Infiltrate the mobile suit racing championship to…

      bring down a racing team known to be AEUG supporters but they eventually start fighting/racing/kicking a$$ 10 ways from Sunday in the name of good (and more money) in –
      “Mobile Suit Gundam 0087: Side Story: Circuit of the Stars: Lynchman & Johnnyboy: The Grand Prix under the Hood.”

      also there is some serious heavy metal music and everyone has names that reference automobiles and autoracing (more sweet appellations in the same vein as Quattro ^.^)

      • Matt Wells says:

        Oh God, I want to live in a universe where this exists.

        • Reid says:

          the racing one or all three? lol it’s technically possible, if you believe G Gundam is a wayyy-in-the-future of the UC (but before Turn A and all that) and the thing with the jets could be an in-universe movie, or it could be the real universe with all the other Gundam stories being merely fictionalized retellings of actual events, which may have included a comic book crossover from the popular super heroes Lynchman and Johnnyboy. Kinda like how Captain America used to fight HItler, Lynchman now takes on those evil Titans!

          • Matt Wells says:

            The other two are fine, but Lynchman and JohnnyBoy fighting the Titans through the wonders of Underground Mobile Suit Grand Prix racing is utterly INSPIRED. The title alone is fund-worthy. I laughed my ass off before actually applauding. Bravo!

            Bishojuo Kido Budoten Sailor Moon is no slouch either.

          • Reid says:

            I thank you, I thank you. This thread is awesome, by the way. I wish I had seen it when it first came out.

      • ALL THE FUNDS OF GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, AND APPLE. FUND IT.

        I gotta put out too:

        The Fucking Space Battleship Yamato.
        Captain Fucking Grodek.
        Ideon, Genesic Gao Gai Gar, Turn A & Turn X Gundams piloted by Genocidal Flit Asuno clones

        Vs.

        The Humankind Empire Abh (basically an an entire race of Newtypes)

        THIS SHOW CANNOT BE NAMED

  16. Matt Wells says:

    1. Shotaro Kaneda + MISUTAH KING OBU KINGSUU, MACHEEEN HEADOO TETSUJIN!!! = “Shishou no Shishou: Machine Head Tetsujin 28”. Think of it as a cross between the original Tetsujin 28, except Tetsujin is now a Cybernetic Intergalatic Racing Champion built like a brick shithouse. Kind of like Heat Guy J in fact, if that show was better than average. Shamelessly copied from Reid’s superb Redline/Gundam crossover.

    2. Chibodee Crocket and Texas Mack and Mic Sounders 13th + that one OVA where a family of anthropomorphic Tigers teach their toddler how to poop = “HOW ARE U? FINE SANK YOU! GODDAMN SHITTO, TOO MUCH HIGH POWA MAAAN: Bakunetsu Conversational English for the Japaneesu springtime youth”.

    Giant Robot pilots Mack and Chibodee teach basic English conversational vocabulry for the under 5s, teaching children such universal phrases as “Kore ga JAPANESE MOUNTAIN MONKEY”, and “OI JAPANEESU! SHADDUPUU!!!”. In between these incoherent bouts of linguistic Imperialism and bordeline racism, Mic Sounders hosts a wealth of fun singalongs, which not even his co-presenters can understand.

    3. The main character of Detective Conan + Robo’s Control Watch from Giant Robo: The Animation = “Jimmy Kudo and His Giant Robot”. The adventures of the 19 year old Boy Detective continue on much the same as they always do, except that when the killer is unmasked they summon a giant robot to fight on their behalf. Jimmy calls up Giant Robo. Your 74 volume, 640 episode series just got awesome again.

    That’s the best I got. Some of the other entries here are so good nothing I could come up with would be their equal.

    • Reid says:

      1. Thanks for the shout-out in the first idea. I LIKE YOUR IDEA BETTER. Heatguy J is the shizzz. Dice is such a cool nickname for a guy named Daisuke (that used to be my handle on mechwarrior 4 back in the day)
      2. I would watch this and cry laughing at those wondrous caricatures of my homeland’s finest.
      3. This sounds cool, but ain’t it pretty much the same thing as Steam Detectives?

      • Matt Wells says:

        1. I never saw Heat Guy J, I only know that it was the show that killed Geneon USA. If you recommend it, I’ll have to give it a look. YOUR IDEA IS STILL BETTER.

        3. Never saw Steam Detectives (or read the manga) but I was under the impression that robots weren’t that heavily involved. My mistake.

    • OH MY FUCKING GOD MACHINE HEAD TETSUJIN 28 JUST RUINED MY UNIVERSE BECAUSE IT DOESN’T EXIST IN IT.

      I gotta try again.

      Turn The Free Planets Alliance into Tanuki.

      They are at an ecological battle against the Zentraedi.

      =

      Heisei Tanuki Wars of the Super Dimensional Galactic Heroes Pom Poko

    • Matt Wells says:

      Just two more then I’m done.

      4. Johan Libert + a beta disk of the Monster Fight videogame = “MONSTER Rancher”. Transported by magic inside the game into a life or death struggle against the evil warlord Moo, eugenics experiment Johan systematically razes this virtual landscape to the ground, doing untold damage to the already crippled world, instead of bringing salvation. He does this simply because he can, and he enjoys doing it.

      Along the way, a loyal gang of monsters try to teach him the value and meaning of friendship, and through subtefuge and deception he turns them against one another, descending into a daze of rape, murder and madness. The resulting show is “Pokemon” meets “The Boys from Brazil”. Genki is Tenma, Holly is Nina, Tiger is Inspector Runge and Pixie is Eva. Moochi is Roberto.

      5. Jim Hawking + Cybody Tauburn = “Outlaw Star Driver”. When Melfina turns out to be the secret fifth Maiden of Southern Cross Island, cute Shotaro Boy Jim Hawking is forced to become the Galatic Pretty Boy and defeat the combined forces of the Glittering Crux Brigade and the MacDougal Brothers. That is if a jealous Tsundere Aisha Klan Klan and Kuudere Twilight Suzuka don’t kill him first. They don’t take kindly to being upstaged in the sexiness stakes. Meanwhile, Gene Starwind questions his sexuality with mounting horror. Is Jim REALLY that pretty? The Outlaw watches the preceedings with amusment.
