  1. Maybe some search engines still have cached data linking to old/removed posts that some people stumble over...? There are ways to access a sites cached data which likely includes links to pages and possibly even cached postings with data. But I'm not going to go into that subject anymore here as that is something we precisely do not encourage the use of for reasons already mentioned...
  2. Well the anime adaptation was started before the manga was complete (I believe) and towards the end the anime was completed before the manga was ready. The diversion from the manga basically made the anime not really able to have a season 2. It is similar to how Hellsing was created by jumping ahead of the manga which resulted in them having to create Hellsing Ultimate to get the proper story done right. Unfortunately this anime didn't do well enough for them to do a reboot of it, unfortunately. I would have really liked to see it as it was intended. **Crap, I forgot the forum rebuild changed it a bit and many of these threads are old...oh well**
  3. Ah hah! So changing the season to "Illustrias Geocentric Theory" was the missing piece to the puzzle my friend missed. I appreciate all your help on this! Thanks for the pic Koby! That helped me understand it since I don't have Netflix. I guess this thread can be archived away now! Now I need to hijack my friends TV to watch the last episodes.
  4. Well I guess I can't argue with you Koby. I should be going over to my friend's place tomorrow and I'll see if I can find it. Might there be any reason my friend couldn't find it? ...like maybe you have a special anime add-on service or something? My friend is very big into anime, so if a special subscription is needed, I'm pretty sure he'd have it. Hopefully he just doesn't know how to search properly or something. Maybe the last 3 eps are only subbed and maybe that could cause the search to be more limited? Anyway, thanks for the responses from both of you. @Headhunter I didn't mean to call you out on a lie or anything. I was just trying to get something conclusive and wasn't sure who to trust more here. But I've known Koby long enough to trust in what he says over practically anyone else. So I'm sorry for not believing you in the first place. I'll try to figure it out tomorrow as I, unfortunately, don't have a Netflix account.
  5. Thank you for the reply. So I consulted my friend that has Netflix and after he finally found it, he said only eps 1-10 are on there. So I'm not so sure you are correct. Can you verify what you said is accurate? If so, please let me know how to find it if there is some specific way; such as specifically searching for, "Illustrias Geocentric Theory"?? Or another way. This is the exact reason I posted this question on here because of so much conflicting information about it. Now, and still, after checking netflix, I'm still unable to find the last 3 episodes.
  6. I've seen the first 10 episodes, but can't find a single thing about the last 3...? The first 10 aired like 3 years ago or something. I know they put a pretty long pause on finishing the last 3 under the name, "Illustrias Geocentric Theory". But I can't seem to find them anywhere. Did they simply never air? It sux soooo much being at the ending to the season and then just blah...nothing. Ugh, I hate not being able to complete a series. I'm sure many of you out there have info about it. I did a little research. But after hitting up 4 major sources about it, I was unable to get any concrete info and I got lazy and quit looking. So now I'm asking here. Thanks Guys!
  7. Incorrect. And to help provide a little more specific info... Radiant is based on the french Comic of the same name that is distributed in Japan, but was animated and produced by Lerche Studios who also did the animation for series such as Assassination Classroom and Danganronpa.
  8. You know, I never really took this into consideration. Good point!
  9. I appreciate and totally respect your response. This definitely isn't for everyone. Like I mentioned earlier, this may apply to just a select few at the moment. But, I predict this to gradually change and will grow to become a bigger concern that will affect more and more with time. Just remember, when the time comes where it affects you, please remember I predicted it long before anyone thought it was even an issue and even worked towards the basis for the solution. But who knows, maybe it'll never happen or be resolved in another manner...who knows...
  10. I totally understand where your coming from. But from what you just said, there's clearly a need for terminology to help classify since this issue is starting to hit the top of the food chain...as I predicted it would, eventually...earlier in this thread. I posted my idea laid out simply as an Idea and possibly a good starting point for simple awareness. I didn't mean it like I did in the original post asking for us to make changes. It's more top seed the basic idea in the back of people's minds to consider what my idea is and remember it when these sorts of discussions come up in other places of the interwebs. The exact term I used may not live in, but the premise of it should and can't help be a pivotal point in the fandom collectively coining a new team for this very reason so that it can become official at some point. No, my idea is simply an example from my point of view used to explain how I would personally classify. The main point is that if everyone hypothetically uses a term such as what I came up with based on the idea and reasoning for needing it, and develops their own way they would classify "Amino", collectively combining this information would create a more universally agreed upon categorization without even realizing it. When anime was new to us, we didn't have a term so just used anime. Now, we just need to continue conversations all over the net with this simple little idea in the back of our minds when this issue comes up and terms will automatically be created, changed, and simply grow on its own into a new category that would be eventually too popular to not use and would be adopted by companies having trouble currently trying to categorize their video as anime. The point is that I haven't seen or heard anyone ever say, Party A says it's anime...Party B says it's not...technically one is correct, but essentially the other is also correct...Hey, let's fix the terminology instead of arguing over an old outdated term that technically isn't accurate at all for use outside of Japan. I only see this problem grown more and more until something like my idea finally happens. It's inevitable. Am I the only person that really sees this?
  11. I just thought of a great idea. Anime is Japanese Animation. So a new term we can use (instead of Anime-esk, etc...) can be "Animo" that we can freely standardize as a term for any Anime Style-like video no matter the location of development that has similarity or design purposefully to be like Anime. "Animo" is short for "Animated Motion Video", but shortening in a way to very closely resemble "Anime" which matches the goal of what it represents similarity to, but not limited to. Basically, a more adult themed animation that is normally designed by using back end 3D modeling but overlay art style by use of hand drawn, digital coloring, and other techniques to make it not look like digitally created video...but utilizing technology and 3D models to help enhance and speed up the production of an artistic style video...the way anime is. So I would like to hereby coin the term "Animo" for shows like RWBY and Exaella as they really don't seem to fit in the category of cartoon. Another movie I have always felt it to be more like anime than cartoon was Titan A.E.. I don't normally take much interest in American made animations, but for some reason Titan A.E. didn't give me that same feel that all the others do...just like RWBY! And, well, Exaella is clearly an anime that was just produced in Russia instead of Japan...so it clearly needs a place to hold the closest possible relation to anime. Oh, a there are a few others I feel need this title (if they aren't considered anime, which I don't think they do...) including Godzilla Monster Planet [Trilogy], the Castlevania series (which I think is an excellent series...can't wait for the next season), and some others... Sorry for bringing this old thread I started, and thought we fully concluded, back up. But I had one of those weird mornings waking up and just having this thought in my head and I thought it was a great idea. So I needed to write it down. Please feel free to share your thoughts on this. If you think it's totally dumb, that is fine...please briefly explain...or just say I'm dumb...whatever. This is not meant to start this conversation all over and open the argument up again. But, if this idea sounds as good to others as it does to me, maybe this will help share the idea with others and if enough think it is a good idea, collectively everyone can think about it and help define and create a new simple solution to anime-like video categorization such as what I've proposed. My ultimate goal with this is to be able to easily search a genre that contains all of what I like instead of having just Anime and then have to fish through Cartoon Categories to hunt for an anime-like movies/series/OVAs hidden in there. It just doesn't seem feasible and I often miss very good shows because of this. I hope a simple solution, such as this, may help to fix this...little issue possibly a non-issue for many, but considerable for some. ** Oh, as for my Avatar being Archer...even though it is an animation and may meet most of the criteria I described for "Animo", I would not consider it as part of this category. It simply does not have the same feel at all. The same goes for South Park. (both of which are pretty much the only non-anime animated series I watch). **
  12. I totally respect your opinion. And, you are exactly correct about the "if" scenario for other shows which is why I feel there would be (or maybe is) the need for specific requirements to be met for the label to apply. Right now we basically have two sites that are the authoritative entities who decide what falls in the category of "anime". Do they follow the same standard as you by "if made in Japan"? Where do you draw the line between video from Japan? Death Note live action...clearly not an anime, but would you possibly file that under your anime collection? Animation itself has changed quite a bit over time to 3D CGI and will continue to change as live action video contains more CGI to where they will probably merge. It's the basis of this type of modernization of technology that can change what defines what and a Kobe Beef patty on a bun gets called a hamburger. Will the definition of "anime" change with the times or will new terminology be created to accurately recategorize sub genres and new design methods for video production? ...just something to think about. And, once again, I've started thinking too much into this! Lol. Sorry... :-P (I'm getting a little bored at work...which is really rare)
  13. Lol. I've never put so much thought into this subject before... For American made adult cartoon/animation shows, such as South Park and Archer, I've never really known what to call them. I've always just called them shows like any other TV show. I've never had to describe them before because everyone knows what they are. But that question for categorizing anime definitely plays a part in my categorization. I guess American made animation isn't nearly as diverse as Anime is. We pretty much have 90% all animation as cartoon or whatever we would call the very popular CG Animation from Pixar an other studios that are made for kids. Quick search I found Wikipedia describes Archer as "Adult Animated SitCom". Arg, I had to look up "Cartoon" now. "Cartoon" as a definition has changed over time as it originally wasn't referred to animation at all. "Cartoon" doesn't appear to be used anymore for modern American animation, but seems to just refer to "two-dimensional illustrations". Wikipedia describes all modern day "Cartoons" as "Animated Series/Movies". Oh well, this might be a bit off subject here. Sorry. I guess the idea of trying to put RWBY into the Anime section was the wrong way of going about fixing what I though should change. Instead, maybe changing the term "Cartoon" would be the more accurate solution. But what could it be changed to in order to keep it simple and properly identify? "Animated Animations"...lol? I can't really think of any single way to define the category that would include "Cartoons", "Animated TV", "Animated Movies", "Adult Animated...", "Anime-Style Animation", etc. Unfortunately, it appears "Cartoon" is just the simplest, albeit not being very accurate.
  14. Oh wow. I didn't realize so many cartoons were outsourced like that. I meant what I said more of as a hypothetical situation not realizing how much it was actually done. Thanks for the reply and the way way you explained it. I have a better understanding now. I regards to how you mentioned many anime don't have the appearances of what we call anime, I agree with you there. I was actually thinking about how I wouldn't even call some "anime" anime because of that exact reason. If I was to tell someone about one of those, I would call it a Japanese cartoon instead of anime. That's how I, personally, categorize anime. I guess I'll just need to call RWBY an "American made anime-like series"...or maybe take out "American made" and simplify it to "Anime-like animation" so that it would be more universal to others, such as "Exaella".
