CAA Radio Season Two Topic Circuit

Talk about anything in here.

Postby steenajack » Mon May 31, 2010 7:07 pm

Here's some questions that I'd like to suggest (if you'd like to use them):

Do you read fanfiction? Do you like it? Do you write it? What are some things you love/loathe about it?

What are some pet-peeves you have reguarding anime/manga?

Do you read web-manga or amateur comics on the web? If so, what are some titles that you've read? Are you an author of any web-comic/manga yourself?
Please, feel free to check out my sites:

We should have an anime movie episode. Many fans (myself included) tend to focus on the TV series, but the films deserve our love as well.

Some topics might include: What makes a good anime film? Favorite/least favorite anime film directors? Anything upcoming that looks promising? Discussion of the history of anime films or maybe just some landmark film/anime film milestones. Each of you could recommend your favorite anime film and tell us why we should watch it.

If CAA was a real place what would it be like? If you had the sole responsibility (and an unlimited budget) to do so, how would you build (infrastructure and facilities) and furnish it?

Odd, I was just thinking about suggesting something like this.

While I'm not exactly all for an entire episode devoted to one thing, perhaps you could have sections devoted to different genres? Samurai, mecha, and the like?

Themes in anime- what do you like seeing most (friendship, sacrifice, love), and what anime do you think showcases it the best?

Has there ever been an anime that you've watched the first show of, then never watched again because it was so bad?

Here's one I don't think has been brought up before (at least not in this thread)- Anime vs Manga- are there an anime you feel are better than the manga versions? Which ones and why? And are there any manga you feel are better than their anime counterparts? Which ones and why? And are there ones that you love both versions equally?

I think that we have a general idea of the sorts of things you like as well as your top n anime. Now, what about your bottom n anime and what do you think it says about you?

Have your tastes changed from when you started watching anime to now? In what ways? Are there some series that you liked when you started but find a little painful to watch now, or just can't watch now because it's no longer appealing to you?

Since I'm beginning to see duplicate questions and because it may make it easier on the podcast members, I'll steal Tsuku's job here and post a somewhat organized list of topic ideas so far. I won't include the ideas from the last list since I can't remember which ones were used/combined exactly.

- What kind of bear is the best? (Shilohan Ninja)
- Also, do you read any American or otherwise Super Hero comics? If so, which ones and why? Favorite comic publishers?
Read actual comic books, or the Sunday funnies? Which do you prefer and why? (Shilohan Ninja)
- What anime/manga character is your twin as far as appearance and or personality? (Shilohan Ninja)
- What anime/manga character is your inverse (polar opposite) as far as appearance and or personality? (Shilohan Ninja)
- What anime/manga character is your dream girl? Why? *dream guy if any girls answer on the podcast in the future* (Shilohan Ninja)
- Favorite anime/manga character of all time? Why? (Shilohan Ninja)
- OPs and EDs. Top five of your favorites or what you consider the best (within the context of the anime or not, your choice). And for further discussion in case you're bored, you can talk about what makes an appealing OP or ED. Does it always depend on the series' context with the OP/ED, or can you like an OP/ED and hate the series (or vice versa, love the series, but hate the OP/ED)? (goldenspines)
- How do you feel about using scanlations or fansubs, or others using them? (Mr. Hat’n’Clogs)
- How do you feel about collaborations between the US(or anywhere else, if they've done it before) and Japan for stuff like the Animatrix or Heroman? (Mr. Hat’n’Clogs)
- What are (or would be) the pluses and minuses of your significant other being into anime? (TheSubtleDoctor)
- The coming-of-age story in anime/manga: do you tire of it or do you still heart it? (TheSubtleDoctor)
- Are there any tropes/trends or otherwise cool aspects of 90s anime (or older anime if you prefer) that you miss today? (TheSubtleDoctor)
- Thinking of the Doctor Who cast idea reminded me, that if there is enough interest, you all should do a Kamen Rider cast. :D (yes, this is an excuse to get you all to start watching Kamen Rider) Or you could do a small segment on it, that's okay too. :3 (goldenspines *is too much fangirl, sorry >_>;*)
- And for something totally off the wall: You are stranded on a desert island with a portable battery powered DVD player. You only have enough battery power to watch one anime series (the battery power will magically adjust according to your choice), which title will you choose to watch before you die of starvation (or get rescued)?
(Note: You cannot remove the batteries from the DVD player) (goldenspines)
- I think this may have already been touched on, can't remember, but what do you think about live action anime adaptations, both from Japan and America? (GeneD)
- If you could create a live action adaptation, of which anime would it be and what would be the best way to pull it off? (GeneD)
- What anime characters you want to throw off a cliff and why? XD (Airichan623)
- Have you ever been to a convention? If able to reveal, which one? On con activities? (Airichan623)
- Favorite manga translator (legal) (Airichan623)
- Series that made you stop and think (Airichan623)
- Series that made you the most emotional (or cry if you can admit it XD ) (Airichan623)
- Do you watch AMVs? (Airichan623)
- Fullmetal Alchemist (origin) vs. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Which one is better? (Arya Raiin)
- Have you ever tried to re-create food or dishes you've seen in anime? Has anime inspired you to drink Ramune or eat Pocky? (GAINAX)
- Do you tend to prefer anime or manga when both have a version of a story, including anime first series like Eureka Seven or Evangelion. (Mr. Hat’n’Clogs)
- I would like to see the "question to the audience" revived. (GeneD)
- The internet phenomenon known as "the abridged series", Yu Gi Oh TAS and others. (GeneD)
- Have you ever been mistaken for someone else (like a celebrity)? (goldenspines)
- Going off that first question, can you mimic anyone famous' voice? (goldenspines)
- Or better yet, mimic any anime character's voice? (goldenspines)
- If you had a choice to travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why (and be specific, not just "Japan" or wherever, but what city/region)? (goldenspines)
- Do you read fanfiction? Do you like it? Do you write it? What are some things you love/loathe about it? (Steenajack)
- What are some pet-peeves you have reguarding anime/manga? (Steenajack)
- Do you read web-manga or amateur comics on the web? If so, what are some titles that you've read? Are you an author of any web-comic/manga yourself? (Steenajack)
- We should have an anime movie episode. Many fans (myself included) tend to focus on the TV series, but the films deserve our love as well. Some topics might include: What makes a good anime film? Favorite/least favorite anime film directors? Anything upcoming that looks promising? Discussion of the history of anime films or maybe just some landmark film/anime film milestones. Each of you could recommend your favorite anime film and tell us why we should watch it. (TheSubtleDoctor)
- If CAA was a real place what would it be like? If you had the sole responsibility (and an unlimited budget) to do so, how would you build (infrastructure and facilities) and furnish it? (GeneD)
- Japanese food (not hands), in real life and food themes in anime. (GeneD)
- Themes in anime- what do you like seeing most (friendship, sacrifice, love), and what anime do you think showcases it the best? (Atria35)
- Has there ever been an anime that you've watched the first show of, then never watched again because it was so bad? (Atria35)
- Anime vs Manga- are there an anime you feel are better than the manga versions? Which ones and why? And are there any manga you feel are better than their anime counterparts? Which ones and why? And are there ones that you love both versions equally? (Atria35)
- I think that we have a general idea of the sorts of things you like as well as your top n anime. Now, what about your bottom n anime and what do you think it says about you? (Blkmage)
- Have your tastes changed from when you started watching anime to now? In what ways? Are there some series that you liked when you started but find a little painful to watch now, or just can't watch now because it's no longer appealing to you? (Atria35)


Now, for another from me.

- Have you ever come across an anime/manga that's difficult to explain, plot wise, to someone else? (whether they like anime or not) If so, which one(s) and how come? And do you think an anime/manga is better or worse if you can't sum up the plot very well?

Hey hey folks, our next show is going to have a bit of a theme, so if you have any questions about anime conventions or our experiences at anime conventions, let 'm fly here (within the context of the rules on CAA of course).

Do the hallway gamers at conventions fill you with a murderous rage? How about rampant meme shouting?
If you could host a panel, what would it be?
Who is your favorite guest that you have seen/met at a con?
A "rave"?
What are a few things you would do to improve the anime con experience?

If your going to do best cosplay you might as well do worst cosplay as well.

One or two things you hate and/or love about cons?
Something you always wanted to do but never got to?
Best/ Worst con you've ever been to?

Aww, everyone else took my ideas for questions. XD

- What is the one thing you should never be without at any anime convention?
- And with the previous question in mind, how should one prepare for an anime con?
- Have you ever cosplayed? If so, who did you go as? Or, if not, who would you want to go as?

Looking forward to this special topic show. ^__^

The november podcast has been eaten by the unfortunate confluences of an extremely busy beginning of the month for several members and the end of the month being entirely consumed by Thanksgiving, which was a little unexpected.

We'll be back in december for sure.

We actually discussed Gundam in the first episode of the second season. We talk about ongoing shows almost every show more or less.

I think you should move the x-axis so that zero is at boring or mediocre. Otherwise, it would imply that Bleach cannot possibly get any worse, which I'm sure is a point of contention.
