Justice League Anime Discussion:

This is for discussion of the upcoming JL Anime game.

A quick starter note: This world's civilians are sort of a cross between Planet Eris and Weirdness Censor. They're aware of the existence of magical girls, soul reapers, zombies, etc., but unless it's directly impacting their lives, most civilians just want to get on with their normal lives. As such, many of them don't know more than the most general details about paranormal stuff.

Speaking of which, Kazumi's Witches and Black*Star's Witches are not the same thing in this world, despite the similar names. Kazumi herself looks more like what Black*Star thinks of as a "witch", while her Witch would look more like a Kishin to him.

Seriously, what does that even mean?

'Watermelon, watermelon, cantaloupe, cantaloupe' is what directors used to tell statists to say when they wanted background chatter, and, as the PPC wiki tells you, it is the mating call of Generics everywhere.

Heh. Nice.

"So when are we going to get this started?!"

Calm down, Black Star, some people are still making their sheet. You just gotta wait.

"Wait? Hah! I'm not gonna wait for these people! This League is just another stepping stone in my path to surpass God! Hahahaha!"

Irk.

Further notes—your characters' series are not fictional to each other, so if anyone has a secret identity, you can't just consult your copy of Yaibaman to discover it. On the other hand, some of the characters will know something about the others.

For an example, anyone who's into that sort of thing knows that the DWMA exists, the main campus is in Nevada, and the basic concept of meister and living weapon combos. Black*Star and Tsubaki themselves are more obscure, and only people specifically interested in the DWMA will have heard of them before.

You might want to work out who knows what about who.

Hm. I may be too quick, but... when are we going to start? I'm really excited for this one.

[up][up] Nanoha never made any attempt at concealing her identity — heck, Arisa and Suzuka saw her when she and Fate fought Reinforce Eins — so I guess she's pretty well-known, Planet Eris-style, by this point, at least in Japan, and certainly in the environs of Uminari City.

Hey guys. Just joined as Raoh, because about half of the prospective members of the League right now are Magical Girls.

He has the double-whammy of being both unmasked and extremely distinctive, so he's probably well known locally, similar to the Gundam masquerading as a Magical Girl.

Further stuff: I'm going for a more DC than Marvel feel—the public likes superheroes in general, there's little of the anti-mutant or anti-parahuman prejudice seen in some series. However, individual characters may be severely prejudiced or outright hostile.

We'll be keeping it PG-13, please. Sex happens offscreen, and the print version of Gory Discretion Shot.

Our heroes' base is Justice Hall, a heavily refurbished ex-school building in the Tomobiki neighborhood of Nerima. Following the Uruseian "invasion" in the 1980s, Tomobiki became known for welcoming alien immigrants to Japan, and is sometimes called "Little Spacetown."

The base is equipped with a super-level gymnasium, a crime lab, the latest in communications equipment for the monitor room, and several small apartments. The only vehicles that have been delivered so far are an armored personnel carrier, and a passenger hoverjet. There's an on-duty mechanic, and a driver/pilot, names to be determined later.

[up] Wait, who's the youngest member? I think it's Kazumi, since she's fourteen (?), but.. hmmm...

Naturally, the general board rules also apply.

Are we going to start with the team already assembled or are we going to have an "introduction" period?

And we start...now: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13479831220A77220100&page=1#1 !

Shutaro Mendou is all grown up from Urusei Yatsura, Noa Bright is repurposed from Mobile Suit Gundam, and the reception team are Kim, Vanessa and Shammy from Superdimension Fortress Macross.

POSTED! Tell me if I made a mistake.

Looking good so far. You might want to review for grammar/typos; I won't point them out unless they're funny.

Sumire would likely be pretty well known as an actress to the public, and in fact revels in her fame. She does try to keep her crime-fighting a bit of a secret though.

Sumire is likely to have met Mr. Mendou before socially; he has a reputation as a bit of a playboy, but his business skills are said to be competent.
Like a BOSS
[up]Gotcha, so he runs in the same kind of social circles as her. Also, I hope Sumire's self introduction came off as suitably arrogant. First time I've played her in anything, or her type of character at the least.

Hey, guys! So I'm a part of this, now, too!

I'm sort of interested as to whether or not anyone other than Celty would be a part of the Dollars...

Also, the DWMA is in Nevada, not in Arizona. (I believe this is explicitly stated in Soul Eater Not.)

Hope you don't mind Izaya figuring out what Celty was off to do with so little information...

Izaya might have been jumping to conclusions, but there would certainly be enough information out there that he'd expect a new job for a superpowered person to be connected.

And he knows a lot, so he's probably heard the rumors, or put two and two together, and realized what is probably happening. His conversation with Celty just confirmed what he already suspected.
