Gainax. What can I say about this particular studio? Well, bottom line: it varies. Their shows can be very interesting and addicting; their shows can show off as extremely weird. They were even responsible for the bouncing breasts that can be seen in anime along with confusing endings that make no sense with the rest of the show. As of late, Gainax has been trying, key word being "trying," to mend their use of these particular endings, although there's really no way of telling if they cleaned up their act. But what put them on the map? What anime was responsible for Gainax becoming famous for their robots?
That, my friends, is Top wo Nerare! (Aim for the Top!) a.k.a. Gunbuster!

First off, I'd like to apologize about how this isn't the Re: Cutie Honey review like I promised back from Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera. Unfortunately, the first part of the first episode was taken down and it's hard as it is trying to find another whole version. Again, my apologies. No Re: Cutie Honey review for a while.
Second off, I'd actually like to say something that I told a friend of mine but I haven't told the rest of you.
My favorite genre of anime is mecha.
You see, mecha (short for "mechanical" of course) anime started off with Tetsujin 28-go (Iron Man #28, no relation to Tony Stark), or Gigantor to us in the US, back in 1963. The original version had this summary:
"During the final days of World War II, the Japanese military is secretly developing a superweapon intended to help save the Japanese Empire. After twenty-seven failed attempts, Dr. Kaneda completes a three-story high, remote-controlled robot. The robot is officially named Tetsujin 28-go. The war, however, is alrea
Concepts of a Collectible Trading Card SeriesAs I slowly get things done for my card series, especially the art work (Done by the amazing Talents of Bracey100 and FBWash here on Deviant art), I need to start "designing" the series itself. Now I got inspired to make this card series thanks to Colossal Kaiju Combat's own trading card series (to which anyone who is reading this should go to their website at Sunstone games And buy their trading cards and Computer games like right now) but I don't want to duplicate them or their success but stand side by side as my own little thing. So I am taking my series in a different direct. Here is a rough idea of what I want to do with my series:More Like This
20-30 Monster/Mech cards
20-40 Story Cards (depending on how many it would take to tell each story)
5-10 Location Cards
5-10 Character Cards (Human and non Human characters)
For a minimum of 50 cards to a maximum of 90 cards, depending on how everything works out.
I really like this idea, and if it goes well I might even use it for the two other tradin
