For some reason, KyoAni tells you that they're giving you full control to create a SoL series but of the country you live in.
It may be highschoolers, elementary schoolers, adults, anything you want.
You must do an honest-to-goodness representation of your country. Maybe some stereotypes here and there if you want, but it should keep an upbeat, positive image of your country.
What kind of series and characters would you do /a/?
If a series were to be about Mexico, it'd have to be either Mexico City or a more peaceful city like Merida. The highschoolers visit ruins, old towns, eat nice food, with the occasional beach episode, or the water caves near Merida.
Or maybe cute luchadoras doing cute lucha things.
That doesn't sound like a honest-to-goodness representation of Mexico.
How about a SoL about those guys that love Tribal and have the crazy boots?
Their lives outside the disco, and their lives inside the disco.
With Mexico being my motherland, I would probably say having a school life themed approach would do it. Peaceful city is also a good idea, especially one with a cultural festival. Common means of transportation would be walking all over town like most series. As for characters, there are a few approaches to it. Athletic to lone wolf personalities could suit the main character. Have a cute love interest and supporting characters to have all sorts of adventures in the beautiful tropical environment and bustling city life. IMO 10/10 would read something like that.
Free EMTs getting sent on wacky calls.
I laughed way more than I should have at this.
It would be better if it were like K-on, but with banda music
Instead of tea and cookies, here they'd have coffee and sweet bread.
I'd really love to see Kyoani illustrating some Day of the Dead sceneries. Or old buildings and churches.
Will it be dual audio Spanish/Japanese? I would watch that so fast.
''Ah, Pepe-kun boots are so long and pointy! He looks so chingon!''.
TL: chingon means kakoi.
Even if I don't know US too much, I'd really like to see some SoL, especially situated in the South, or some lofty mountain town.
>TL: chingon means kakoi.
I saw this coming a few feet away.
What would be the OP theme to a Mexico SoL?
SoL? Make this with angsty teen falling in love, alcoholic relatives (humorous or serious, but where the main character just overlooks it now), and stress the importance of a everyday high school life.... Throw in some intense parties and dangerous thugs here and there to make it accurate.
I don't know if you have seen soap operas, but it would be like those with less emphasis on drama and more fun and upbeat.
Spics pls go back to /pol/ let me discuss my superior animes pls
I mean the music theme ¿Por qué chingados seguimos hablando en inglés?
I like that idea.
No se guey. Pero un rola Cumbia sera chingon
About a group of friends(one canadian, one european, one middle-eastern, one asian) constantly complaining about the snow and getting high all the time.
I would love to watch an anime where the characters smoke weed and talk bullshit for hours, without accomplishing anything,
It'd be like Lucky Star but with guys in their 20's getting super-high.
Because I'd also like to hear ideas from people from other countries.
I'd like to hear what would they consider cute or interesting enough for a SoL.
I hate it that people start calling us spics at the drop of a hat.
American west coast, it would be a glorified The O.C. complete with the rad guy, the rich girl, the nerdy girl, the beta kid, a dog, and a mom who cooks a lot. They go surfing and skating in the weekends and go to school complete with the comical black guy and asian.
Housos except Kawaii as fuck
Or a high school SoL would be pretty fresh esh
Sol in straya
>fuck u cunt
>we're le full xD
>emu war best day of my life
Sounds like K-On! on weed.
Even better, pitch it as a hockey series, and make them waste their time eating at Horton's, or eating Maynards and shit at someone's house.
Make them cute girls, and give them fluffy clothes, people love girls in fluffy clothes.
>lolis being rude
Fund this shit already.
Far right: "Let me steal her" cute.
It'd take place in California because I know it best out of the rest of the country, and would focus on a group of college kids of various life situations. Like Golden Time or Honey and Clover but with less drama and more life experience and drinking.
You would have Abou-kun, the weird classmate who has a tendency of sleeping in the middle of the road.
I'd love to see cute-looking Strayan girls cursing like, well, Australians.
Central New York. It would be a group of people in their early 20's killing themselves and moving out of the state after they're finished with college.
pls make this into Chinese cartoon.
The Tonari no Seki-kun of our time.
Even though it is a state I would make a Hawaii SoL. Lilo and Stitch was well received and people in Japan love Hawaii. I would set it in the past maybe 30-40 years to give it a slower pace kind of like Non Non Biyori. Japanese culture is pervasive in Hawaii too so you can still have obon season, cherry blossom season, etc.
I'm from Vancouver. It would look like a typical highschool SoL except from some superficial differences, tbh.
>Taught ego over wisdom
Id rather not animate reality TV.
Why is this not happening?
Japan hates everything not British.
But they love France, the complete opposite of Britain
In the case of Murrika, who would you prefer to be the wacky, offbeat member of the group? A black, asian, injun, etc?
For Mexico, it could be:
MC. If it's a boy, then pretty mild-mannered, but WILL notice if someone's flirting, and with enough common sense to knock on doors or get the fuck out if he catches a girl dressing. If it's a girl, mild-mannered leaning on cheery.
Poorfag. May embrace the poor or not. Could have thief tendencies, or have a shitty part-time job to help in the house.
Blonde girl/dude. The richfag that gets along because they all grew up in the same elementary school. Can and will flaunt their money, but will also throw parties, making them seem shallow, though they will almost always stick to the group.
"An upbeat, positive image of your country."
Such a thing exists?
It constantly rains here, the kids don't do much more than play in parks. The teens fuck, drink, smoke, and vandalise shit. The adults complain about the kids doing that, then do the same thing, only they do meth and then kill themselves.
What a coincidence, it's basically the same thing in the United States. We're not so different after all, save for the raining bit.
Not that you'll believe me, but I had great professors at my school.
How about older times? Were they happier than the current ones you're mentioning?
Scotland never had an upbeat time. Ever.
It's all 3DPD anyways, no matter what country you're from.
How long ago are you talking? Industrial revolution? Middle ages? Viking era?
Any time, as long as you could put it in an upbeat mood, without forcing it, like trying to force sunshine and puppies in dark times.
Basically this, but the best times we've had is when we got whisky and killed the English a lot.
>Border town in Texas.
Border patrol SoL
MC is fresh out of the academy and has wacky adventure with his co-workers on the bridge.
crossover OVA with >>101773908 where he gets lost in mexico.
In that case, never.
The only european countries more depressing than scotland is like, lithuania, latvia, and poland.
Are you telling Serbia has it better than Scotland?
Northeast Forida SoL?
I don't associate enough with rednecks to make it believable.
Eastern Europe in general is just a depressing and scary place. No matter what time period. Past, present, and future.
It's amazing what simple statistics can tell you about a place and its people.
Oh shit I forgot about them. Nah they're fucked too.
Though, the best I can do for making an upbeat SoL, isn't really all that interesting. Kids would go on little kid adventures in parks, forests, ruined buildings from the old ages. Teens would be having fun with their mates, pranking each other, talking shit, smoking, drinking, vandalising property, and having tween drama relationshits. Adults would hang out in the pubs, get drunk with mates, mess with tourists, and work.
The new transfer student Gustavia Adolphia arrives at North Gakuen to conquer the school in the name of Protestantism. Can The Lioness of the North win against The League of Catholics?
American college setting. Main character is a lonely commuter who never made any friends freshman year. Halfway through his sophomore year he's forced to dorm because his parents hit the lottery and retire to Florida. Now he must deal with a roommate and other people even though he finds it hard to make friends and put any effort into human relationships. There are girls involved, but there's also the pressure of trying to get an internship, overwhelmed with papers, awkward parties he's forced to go to, etc.
I'd watch the shit out of little Scottish kids adventures or adults getting drunk and fucking with tourists.
A Scottish driller friend of mine invites me to his guest house if I ever go to Scotland, how would I get messed with?
Given how much Japan demonizes drugs, and anime where the characters constantly smoke weed would be interesting.
>I'd set it on Seattle or Portland, tho.
5th grade boys and girls during summer vacation who live in a beach town. Imagine Mitsudomoe but outside. Large cast of characters, separate groups of friends, and not much of a plot. Wide variety of locations, such as the beach and boardwalk, a local park, one kid's backyard, the boys' secret treehouse, the main street where all the tourists come in the summer, the marina where all the boats are, a construction site, etc. The last few episodes would get a bit more serious as the summer winds down and everyone realizes they're going to get separated again for the next 9 months. This would prompt some character development.
I can see one whole episode being about a protracted water-balloon fight between the boys and girls. Skirmishes would occur, one girl would cross-dress to sneak into the boys' hideout, someone would accidentally hit an adult. It would lightly parody shounen action shows.
Another episode could be about a block party. Or a rainy day/hurricane where everyone is stuck inside. General summer-time fun things.
And since it's in the US, there'd be a Fourth of July episode with nothing but endless fireworks and a waving flag.
Depends. If you're ignorant, they'll just lie and use a lot of sarcasm. When it comes to pronunciations, there's no victory. Ever. Someone will ALWAYS tell you to say it differently. There'll probably be cases of them misplacing your shit intentionally. Oh and they're going to feed you questionable looking shit. Though most of it's pretty good.
Have no fear though, the best way to get in good with Scots is drink. No place to stay? Fuck it, you're stayin' with us. Someone fuckin' with ya? Let's go fuck 'em up.
>Boondock Saints style SoL of two cute Irish girls and a cute Italian girl who work together to pull mean pranks on the bullies at their high school/neighborhood, occasionally getting into trouble because of it.
Good to know.
I've worked with a lot of Scotsmen on the rig, si I've more or less got the hang of things with them.
Not a degree on Scotonomics, but I'm not too ignorant either.
I am very willing to eat whatever you put on my plate if it's something you also eat, but I'm afraid I'd die of liver implosion because I've been drinking for only a couple of years now.
Going back on topic. I'd really like to see some edgy tryhard character in the group. Here in Mexico you'll see that kind of person in a group of friends quite often. It's especially worse when they're younger and one of them tries to sound tough as shit by saying they've been in fights, or when a group of dweebs has the one that tries to look grimdark and cool.
>actually researching shit
>actually researching shit
Try watching El Cazado de Bruja. That's how the country would be depicted if we ever get another anime set in Mexico (or Latin America, really, makes no diference for japs).
I'd make an adaptation of my favourite book. It's basically a high school SoL, with an alpha as fuck protag.
Araki does research...........in his own particular way.
Hmm I don't think he did much in the past. I mean there are a few that actually do research, I was going to mention two manga, Emma and Otoyomegatari, but both are by Kaoru Mori. Other than that, most manga is set in Japan or not in this world in the first place.
What about a failed college NEET from prestigious university who plots to kidnap former schoolmates? Being Mexico beach episode would be during Easter Break.
>TL: chingon means kakoi.
Can Mexico into anime?
