...I think I know why you picked "glass onion" as a hint, and I take offence.
EDIT: Changed my questions. Could you clarify the phrasing of whether it's an OP or not?

Glass onion... glass onion... glass, as in glass doll, as in the term used to describe humanoid entities in Imaginary Girl... Imaginary Girl... opening to AD Police Files...
Oh wait, it's not Fantasy or Sci Fi. Welp, I'm out of ideas.
Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. Glass is transparent. So... ... ...
Nope, no leads!
Is it comedy? drama? Tragedy? I'm sure those all count as tropes somehow!

Just noting that I'm online because of my DSi at the moment.
Okay, let's see if I can get a post through now...
@Pyrite: I only picked that hint because of the anime/song.
It is not an OP.
It's not Kusari.
Mons are not involved.
None of those movie tropes can be applied.
@Tomu: Please Pot Hole those questions. It was a pain justing checking for the other tropes.
It's not Mecha.
There isn't any Scenery Porn.
There is no Narm.

Using your D Si again.... I got to try that...
I'm only using it now because I don't have my laptop at the moment.
...Honest? Because "glass onion" is apparently urban slang for overanalysing... which, as you've guessed, is my schtick.
@Pyrite: Durr, I totally forgot why The Beatles wrote that song. No. No. Yes.
I,ll compile a list when I'm back on my laptop.
Is it the ED theme to the Animal Crossing anime? ANN says it's "森へ行こう" by Taeko Onuki.
herpderp (Hey, I meant that I thought you were trying to mock me. Well, if you weren't, guess you are now. HAVE AT THEE, VARLET! *uppercut*)
Is it the anime adapted from a Dating Sim? Eroge? Is Magical Realism present in the setting?

I'm finally back home.
*sends out Snorlax to break my fall and Glaceon to encase Pyrite in ice*
What gave it away? Let me guess, you checked for Slice of Life titles on the The Anime of the Game page.
Mori e Ikou* The title romaji according to Animelyrics.com - Animal Crossing - 23 facts
Hint explanation: Glass Onion -> The Walrus Was Paul -> Related to The Walrus Was Paul or: Glass Onion -> The Walrus Was Paul -> Wendell the Walrus
Durr, posted the wrong video earlier.

Pyrite used Outrage!
It wasn't very effective...
edited 24th Aug '11 7:48:44 AM by Pyrite
Glaceon used Ice Beam! Pyrite is frozen solid!
(Haven't played Pokemon in a really long time.)
It's super effective! Pyrite fainted! Glaceon gained 300 exp!
A wild MissingNo appeared!

You cannot grasp the true form of MissingNo's attack! Destruction rains from the heavens!

Or reality overall is just simply f***** up.
So, it was right.
Hint: Keep weight
Varient rules: Just the usual "no questions about airing dates and series length" stuff.

Is Xenoblade awesome?!? Does it live up to its name? SHOULD I FIGURE OUT SOME WAY OF GETTING IT?!?
I'm not really that far into it (I'm 8 hours in, but considering the size of this game and the sheer number of sidequests to distract you, that means I have only just reached what I consider to be the the second "town"), but yes, it seems like a very fun game so far. It's kind of MMORPG-styled in gameplay terms (apart from the fact it is single-player obviously), with the main focus of battles being how you manage your skills and aggro. The setting is great, the graphics... are technically kind of poor, but is made for in other aspects of the art. The close-ups of the characters, used quite often in the cutscenes, really show the Wii's limitations compared to its more powerful rivals, but have the camera zoomed out as far as you can while playing and it looks great due to the sheer scale of the world being shown in its full glory.
It's too early to comment much about the story, but that seems pretty solid in a classic JRPG (with a chosen one, a legendary weapon and all that kind of stuff) kind of way too. I'm playing in dub, mainly because it has British voices instead of American ones, otherwise I would have probably played it in Japanese. There's always the replay for that, though.
Oh, and in case you are wondering about how battles work with the MMORPG-style battle system I mentioned, you control one character directly, and the others are controlled by the AI. The only way to control multiple characters mid-battle is to use chain attacks. Oh, and you can change which character you control from anyone in your fighting party at any time apart from mid-battle (once that feature is unlocked, which is pretty early on), meaning you are not stuck with playing as Shulk (who is a DPS character). I'm currently controlling an awesome MILF who can heal and support using her gun, as well as attack from range, and you can also control Shulk's friend, who is a tank if you want, but I haven't used him yet.
The only other controllable character so far is another DPS character, and a female one at that. She's pretty cool until she died, but at least she went out all guns blazing ;_;
Anyway, how about asking questions related to the Anime Theme Song Game, and not ones about Xenoblade?

Oh fuck, it's for the Wii?
Okay, I won't ask about Xenoblade.
Is it from the Xenosaga anime? Is it In This Serenity? :P
edited 24th Aug '11 3:03:13 PM by TheyCallMeTomu
Yes for the Xenoblade question (Monolith soft are now a first-party developer for Nintendo)
No and no.
edited 24th Aug '11 3:20:06 PM by flygon250
Does it involve Goo? Gu?
Okay before I lose my tally sheet again, here's the score so far.
Shay Guy: 15
Catch the Sun: 6
Miya Kousaka: 1
The G: 1
Jen Kunoichi: 1
