Hello Iwakuvians! I have been away for a long time but I'm back and ready to get my creative brain juices flowing with some RP's! I feel there are a lot of the same anime RP's being done over and over again (Naruto, Bleach, Pokemon, Soul Eater, etc.). Now, I don't know about you guys, but I know there are a lot more anime out there that would be cool or interesting to roleplay. Am I the only one who's seen them? Let's find out!! I'll put down a few ideas here and you can look about for one you might like to do with me. The wikias are provided for visual effect so that you can get a feel for the type of anime it is. I am quite open to suggestions for how we could go about each RP. Just PM me whenever or leave a response here. Gintama (adventure/comedy/historical/fighting/misc. activities/tom foolery/aliens) http://gintama.wikia.com/wiki/Gintama_Wiki Generally, the idea here is a group of three, maybe four, people who meet through unforeseen circumstances and end up working together on odd jobs (Yorozuya). They take on many weird, quirky, some times emotional and deep slice-of-life type jobs. Anything from finding a lost pet to bodyguards to delivery boys/girls. There will be a need for Shinsengumi members (which are a lot!) so there won't really be a restriction on the amount of people that could join in on this RP. The Yorozuya and Shinsengumi will bump heads often enough with some of the jobs they will take on. I have been hankering for a Gintama RP and two people have come to Iwaku, started one, and life coldly snatched them away and they have not come back. So I have a character for the Gintama verse and have not gotten a chance to use her yet! Samurai Champloo (swordplay/historical/traveling/fighting/hiphop) http://champloo.wikia.com/wiki/Samurai_Champloo_Wiki OOC Thread: https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/samurai-champloo-rp.94803/ Originally, two men are tricked into helping a girl look for this samurai that smelled of sunflowers. They end up trekking all over the country, meeting all kinds of strong opponents and getting into all sorts of trouble (some of it illegal >..>). I'm not quite sure how to go about this since there are only three main characters. There's always gender bending but I don't know. We can brainstorm for this one. It could be with the original characters or OCs or a mix of both. I recently rewatched this anime for the second time and... I just... I would really like to do an RP for this anime. I thought to write a fanfic but decided this would be more fun. :D Also, I wouldn't necessarily be focused too heavily on the actual historical element. Cowboy Bebop (futuristic/90's feel/spaceships/planet-hopping/green hair/hackers) http://cowboybebop.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page Four bounty hunters travel the galaxy hunting bounties and trying to scrape up money for food. A gambler, ex-cop, hacker, corgy and former member of a crime syndicate. The character's backgrounds drive this anime for the most part so I suppose we could follow that type of pattern with the characters learning more about each other as the RP goes along. They make for a rather interesting bunch but OC's will be present here. That means the players would have to know very little about the other characters. I like this idea but, again I'm open suggestions. I'm thinking of generally making OC's for this one and our own storyline. I'll need help with plotting if anyone wants to do this anime. Natsume Yuujincho (slice of life/supernatural/school/drama/yokai/special items) http://www.natsumeyuujinchou.wikia.com/wiki/Natsume_Yuujinchou_Wiki A boy who can see yokai is given a book passed down from his grandmother, who could also see them. Inside the book are the names of yokai which gives him the power to control these yokai. After finding out that Natsume has passed, they come in search of it; some want to use it to control the other yokai, some just want their names and freedom back. Natsume is guarded by a yokai who intends to eventually eat him and take the book but for now he protects him from the other yokai. There are about five main characters here but there could be players for the yokai. The story here is interesting so I would actually like to keep the general storyline here. This would be a really nice RP to do. I have only ever talked to one person who actually knew about this anime, but it's a really good one. There could be some action but this one would mostly be a slice of life type. Hopefully you've found one of these as an interesting universe to jump into. There isn't necessarily a need to have seen the animes since the RPs won't follow the original story unless we want to do that type of thing.
