  1. I think if you have to ask " At what point are we all wasting our time?" I think you might already be there. It's now been officially over 4 years since we've had a single chapter of manga. I know I may have mentioned it before to other people, but I will always say it again: Don't count on new material. Move on. Focus on other things. As much as we want more Guyver, hoping and wishing for it... It's not up to us, and if more does come, it will come when it does. And if it doesn't? Constantly hoping for it will hurt even more when/if we are confirmed no more will ever come. I have taken years away from any real Guyver talk in the past, and came back when something finally came up... And even during some other long breaks, I have had Fanfiction/Fanart/Friends stuff to keep me interested in the concept of Guyver, even when there is no official material being made. It is a choice you make, to keep coming and looking for new Guyver material. Just alter that choice. Come for discussion on Guyver related topics if you want to try and continue keeping the community alive, or bow out of Guyver discussion completely. Find a new topic to focus on. I have lots of other interests other than Guyver, and sometimes I take some time (sometimes months) and focus on them. Find their communities and interact with them. Find something else to be excited for. I am not going to say we don't miss our members who do eventually move on... But since no new content is currently being made, and speculation topics have been so overdone, there is nothing left to speculate about... Maybe come back every 6 months or every year just to check for new material. If there is, there could be more than you expect. If not, your quick little pop in won't effect you all that much as you move on to your other interests. Even at this point, as part of the fan fiction part of the site, we've officially moved on from the manga, and will not be writing around it any further. I sometimes wish we could go back to the days where the fan fiction was still actively being put out so that we could contribute SOMETHING... Unfortunately despite all of our current planning ( we meet up to talk at least twice a month), writing just isn't feasible with our lives at the moment... With artwork sometimes popping up in bursts with long times between.
  2. I honestly do not know what to think about it... Other than " It doesn't feel like Ghostbusters"... Which could be good or bad for it. I think one thing a lot of people tend to forget, is that Ghostbusters the movie is really not a kids movie at all... But it is just on the brink of being an adult horror/action, but with some comedy to lighten the mood. But I mean, the Ghost blowjob, Peter is clearly a sleazy con man trying to hit on Dana, and the best joke ever "Yes, it's true. This man has no dick." are not really family friendly. Even Ghostbusters 2 wasn't that family friendly, and it was sillier than the first. It goes without saying that the cartoon was for kids, despite it still being pretty scary at times. And the all female reboot failed to pick up on this and focused purely on the comedy aspect (unbalanced comedy as well, which is the worst part of it) and failed. Yes it is true that Ramis, Aykroyd, and Murray were all comedic actors, they mostly played regular tropes and got a few lines when they could... but for the most part they kept things "real". This is why I think the Marvel movies hit so well. They got what Ghostbusters did. Made a movie for Adults that kids could enjoy, without having to dip into completely into using children for important roles (except Iron Man 3. Ugh. I still dislike that one, though not just because of the kid) just because they want children to want to see it. This, does not look like an adult movie.
  3. Man... I tell ya... We may not have written any story in a long time... But we are meeting up on Skype at least every 2 weeks and completely re-writing the fan fiction, piece by piece. Certain big events still happen of course, but the in between, who is involved, or who fights is constantly in flux as we progress... Some minor characters have been completely written out... While some have gotten expanded roles... If only we could find the time to put it to story... So going back over things with a fine tooth comb (and sometimes scissors or glue) is never a bad thing until everything is perfect... enough... For now... Until you think of something better... or rewrite it all...
  4. I want to preface this by saying I am NOT trying to be mean or trying to stop you from creating your fan fiction... but considering the reason you stated that this post exists, I figure I should lay out some things you need to know and things to expect when doing a project like this. Basically: Considering your fan fiction takes place outside of the standard timeline, you can practically do whatever you want with any of the characters. They could have had time to change or mellow out, as it were. Of course this can lead to the problems with fandom not critiquing or offering opinions etc... because this means there is little interest in the topic or concept that you are using said characters in. Writing a Fan Fiction that uses official characters is always the harder option if you want other fans of the series to like it. If you take a character too far away from what they are in the main plot, it's really no longer that "character" and is just your own character that maybe walks and talks similar to the original. So certainly, if you are writing it absolutely for yourself, great. Go right ahead and enjoy. But hoping/expecting people to comment on a subject that they aren't interested in, despite some of it being from their particular fandom isn't always a guarantee... Especially when the other fandoms involved are either completely different from this one. This is why my favorite Guyver crossover is the really Old Bubblegum Crisis crossover; Heart of the Beast (and it's unfinished sequel, Soul of the Beast. BGC and Guyver have similar DNA and fit together pretty easily (both antagonists are evil corporations, just one uses biological creatures and the other mechanical. Main protagonists are a small group in powered suits etc...). This is something we've had to deal with a lot in our own stories... If you can't keep the essence of the characters, you might as well just create new ones for you to use. This is a big reason why the Warrior Guyver fan fiction original characters are the main characters of our stories. Yes, it is set in a modified Guyver universe, and we do use the originals in ours, but we try and keep them grounded in the reality of the original story as much as possible ( like Agito secretly creating his own Warrior Gigantic... We did that back in 2000... Over 10 years before he secretly made his own Gigantic in the manga. Still a jerk!) So, if you go ahead and make your story ( and you should. the more writing you do, the better you get at it), try not to be disappointed when people don't seem to want to read it. It's clearly not the kind of story they like, or they just don't like the crossover concepts. We have people that loath our stories, and that is perfectly fine. It doesn't stop us from working on them. So write your story the way you want. Post it in as many places where the fandoms you crossover with might like it. If you get hits and fans, fantastic. If not, it will be an experience to help you improve, or you can use your ideas and adapt it to something more original. Remember, even 50 Shades of Grey started as a Twilight fan fic.
  5. Kickstarted it. Played it. Beat it. Waiting for next DLC. Yep, pretty fun. A little TOO much like SOTN in my eyes, mixed with Aria of Sorrow for her soul powers. It's one of those kinds of games that honestly are fun to play, but if you can't come up with new mechanics, it feels a little too rehash-ish... And it only suffered from it... Unless of course you never played Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow for the GBA. Plot is a little thin, but not terrible by any means. There seems to be a whole big story about the characters before this game... Much like SOTN, but at least SOTN has proper games and backstory ( though I know MANY people never played or cared about Castlevania 3 and only jumped into SOTN... So very same-ish there as well for many). My biggest complaint, is that you cannot just wear a helmet and not have it appear. They go and make it so you can have custom hair styles and all that... But if you get a head piece or helmet... It covers her head and face anyway. I played it with the Japanese voices... but David Hayter played Zangetsu in the English version, and who is likely going to be the first secondary character to be able to play as with his own campaign/story. So can't wait for that as his abilities will actually be different.
  6. To put it simply, he doesn't quite care about most series plot shenanigans and just likes entertaining movies/shows. So if has some entertaining stuff, but piss poor plot? He'll still enjoy it. He's not that picky like a lot of us. I wish I could be like that sometimes, but that is just not me =P
  7. Nothing is over... He just needs sometime to drink...

    Dude! Nice to see you still kicking around. And punching around.
  9. Arrived in April 2016. Though the issue number for Shonen Ace was June 2016.
  10. Yep. It's the reason I dislike Zeta, despite some may others who love it. But it does really make you believe that they need to be stopped, despite the Feddies having the general moral high ground after all the garbage Zeon pulled during the OYW. And if you think that tonal shift is bad... Just wait for Double Zeta...
  11. If you like the fighting in G and are able to pick up on the other plot lines, then it really shines.
  12. Haha, lovely! Glad to see the Gouf Custom from 08th MS Team as well. Another bad ass.
  13. Yeah, the plot of G really gets overshadowed by the super level of fighting. It is one of my favorites, but it's because I block out a lot of the fighting garbage Wing is alright is my book, and 00 ranks up as one of my favorites ( despite season 2's shortcomings). 08th MS team is great, likely due in part to its briefness. Really helps the story and animation. IBO is definitely unique... But that ending... So bad. AGE is hit and miss with a lot of fans... With some liking certain parts, but not others. In the end, I thought it was very "meh" in the story... but the mecha designs were great. Build Fighters is superb ( you'd never believe you could get so worked up about 2 kids fighting with their toys) and Build Fighters Try tried change up the formula, and was hit and miss in places... but mostly hit. Divers... Well, it's the opposite of Try... Hit and miss... but mostly miss. The new one that is coming later this year seems to be more based on Divers... So I am not expecting much. But as for Seed, yeah I liked the first season a lot ( also lots of the designs I really like), but Seed Destiny is such a train wreck of poor writing/decision making that it's pretty much inexcusable.
  14. Swap every time you said "chapter" with "volume" and vice versa, and you're spot on. Volume = Collected groups of chapters Chapter = Collected of group pages
