Anime Banner Update

Fitch posted on Jun 02, 2012 at 05:51AM
So from the link, there is an interest in updating the banner.

Guidelines to posting: (Please follow)
1. Your character list should be in one single post. I do check edited posts. Separate character lists will very likely be ignored.
2. Character suggestions are limited to one character per anime
3. Post up to 10 characters
4. Include the characters' full name and the anime they are from
5. Separate your character list by old characters already in the banner and new characters that are currently not present
6. Leave a special mention on the one character that you really want in the banner
7. If you suggest a character that is already in the banner, also include in brackets if you want to change the image of the character

Old characters:
Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece) ->Please be sure to include Luffy
Kurosaki Ichigo (Bleach) [change]
Lucy (Elfen Lied)

New characters:
Gasai Yuno (Mirai Nikki)
Heiwajima Shizuo (Durarara!!)
Death the Kid (Soul Eater)

I can't guarantee that all the characters will be included but I'll try my best. I'll post updates as we go along. And if you're interested in how it went last year, click link

*Please keep in mind that If I include a character in an update, it does not mean that character will be in the final banner. If you really want a certain character, check point #6 and/or get others to put that character in their list.

-Old characters-
Usagi / Serena (Sailor Moon) [change]
Luffy (One Piece) [change]
Goku (Dragon Ball Z)

-New characters-
Ken the Eagle (Science Ninja Team Gatchaman) (Please include this character)
Van (Gun X Sword)
Tekkaman Blade / Teknoman (Tekkaman Blade)
Ichigo / Zoey (Tokyo Mew Mew / Mew Mew Power)
Vash the Stampede (Trigun)
Optimus Prime / Convoy (Transformers Armada)
Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop)

I am aware that people might think that my suggestions are a bit... odd, since some of the characters I suggested for the banner and the anime they come from aren't very well known, but that's the point. Putting these characters on the banner gives them more free press, which is a good thing. Famous anime icons such as Goku from Dragon Ball Z and Usagi from Sailor Moon are important, but there's more to anime than just the well-known ones.

It's like choosing characters for a roster in a Marvel Vs. Capcom game. Sure, it's good to have big-name characters like Ryu from Street Fighter and Wolverine from X-Men, but sometimes, it's better to go with more obscure choices such as Nova, Iron Fist, Phoenix Wright, and Firebrand.

over a year ago viktoriya773 said…
I suggest: Kyo form Fruits basket

Tamaki from Ouran!
Please see if you like any of them!

^ i was just about to say that!!! XD fruits basket, hetalia,and OHSHC are 3 very well known highlited animes ... ( as much as i hate to admit it.... *coughcough hetaila coughcouh* ) but characters from those 3 could be a good idea
over a year ago viktoriya773 said…
Yes see no matter how much some people hate some anime(hetalia) cuz its so popular I think we need to put it! Ans OURAN!
Glad we agree!
over a year ago Fitch said…
@animegurl23 I did not make the Anime Spot. But we can contact the F4 to change the banner for us

New characters:
Ken the Eagle
Dr. Tenma

I've shifted the banner a bit to the right. I haven't figured out how to deal with the annoying black fade in the banner

From what I've seen, Hetalia seems to have a lot of characters If you'd like to have a character from Hetalia I'd rather it be a consensus. So if you could make a pick/poll or use answers I suppose and show me the results, I'll put in the winning character.

P.S. I really hate the black fade in the banners

I'd prefer a banner with characters that don't suck major ass *coughcough*, but whatever.

I would suggest GoLion (better known as Voltron) for the banner, but I don't know if giant robots are allowed, considering that they aren't really actual characters (that, and GoLion/Voltron wasn't popular until it came over to the USA).
over a year ago Gigglepud said…
of your current Work in progress banner, I think you should change either Natsu or Luffy's picture. there's already a pretty big argument about the two shows' similarities, and it just so happens that their poses are very similar :/

and I'm pretty satsified with the character choices so far, thanks for putting all the effort into making the banner, it's greatly appreciated.
over a year ago Fitch said…
Oh I didn't even notice. I will change either Luffy or Natsu's picture in the next update.
No it does not have to be a popular character. But I'm trying to include the characters that are on most people's list.
over a year ago wishey said…
Hey, could you dd some one from angel beats?
over a year ago Fitch said…
I'll put down Tachibana Kanade (Angel Beats) as your special mention
over a year ago Cerudays said…
Oh! Sorry to be so last minute, but do you think you have enough room on the banner for Izaya Orihara? (DRR!)
over a year ago animegurl23 said…
i think you should include hatsune miku , and amu hinamori!! ( p.s i hate that black fade too >:( )
over a year ago Fitch said…
No worries, the forum will be open for at least a week. I want to make sure to give people a chance to leave a post.

So that's two counts for Izaya Orihara. He will be in the next banner update and I will take out Heiwajima Shizuo
over a year ago Fitch said…
Ah yes I was wondering about Miku. Thanks for clearing that up for me.
I'll put Clare Stanfield as your special mention
over a year ago Fitch said…
New characters added:
Tachibana Kanade (Angel Beats)
Orihara Izaya (Durarara!!) replacing Heiwajima Shizuo (Durarara!!)
Hinamori Amu (Shugo Chara)

I've changed the picture for Natsu and moved characters around. Does anyone think the banner looks a little crowded?

It looks good, but I don't like how Ken, Tenma, and Sailor Moon are placed. Their heads are just barely poking out from behind the others.

Yea I'm going to fix that in the next update

Old characters:

1. Hei (Darker than Black)

New characters:

1. Taiga (Toradora) ---> ^_^ by far my favorite anime; #1 best characters/development I have seen in literature

2. Minami (Baka and Test)

if these three characters at least get in, I will be happy :)
over a year ago viktoriya773 said…
Not to be picky, but I suggest Tamaki holding a rose :) anybody agrees with me, because it's like his thing...
over a year ago Fitch said…
I tried to unbury some of the characters but might have buried some other ones. I've moved some characters around, removed Spike and added:
Aisaka Taiga
Claire Stanfield

Could you maybe put in either Itachi or Sasuke?

Thank you so much for putting Gintoki in there ^_^
Oh and I second Sasukes_Gurl vote, Itachi would be the best :-)
over a year ago Moosick said…
Great job with the banner so far! I see many of my favorite characters, you did a really great job! If you could, could you add a character from Katekyo Hitman Reborn?
over a year ago xXitachiXx said…
I agree with Sasukes_Gurl and Ziva I don't see any Naruto characters, I vote itachi as well.
over a year ago Fitch said…
Ah don't thank me yet, depending on the character counts, I might have to remove characters that only have one count to make room for others.
So that's 3 counts for Itachi. I will add him in the next update
over a year ago kakukun said…
Good job with the banner :D And I agree with Moosick~ I would love to see a character from Katekyo Hitman Reborn in the banner! ^^
over a year ago Fitch said…
Ok so 2 counts for a Katekyo Hitman Reborn character. Any particular character you'd like to see?

Uchiha Itatchi (Naruto)
Sawada Tsunayoshi (Katekyo Hitman Reborn)
