From Anime to Reality

Someone was such a fan of Akira that they recreated Kaneda's bike from the manga and the movie. The bike is actually street legal and I'm looking forward to reports of it tearing it up in Neo Tokyo in vicious street gang battles. Extra bonus points if it manages to create light trails. Link

What is your favorite anime character?

In a combat RPG game; What do you want to play as, who do you want to play as? I am making a board card game and i am asking you, what do you want to be? Examples: Goku, a turtle, volibear, a dire wolf, a swordsman etc... Game must be funny. So choose entertaining characters. I prefer tanky, melee characters bcause they are brute.

Will someone draw this for me?

I want a picture of a man in white kneeling and a man in a black suit with a sword putting the sword on the kneeling man's head. I would prefer this to be in a manga kinda style, but any style will be ok. It doesn't matter how long it takes, but sooner is better.

One Piece should come back!

Recently I've been wanting to watch One Piece, since I heard that FUNimation had begun dubbing it. Apparently this had happened about a year ago, but since I had stopped watching it on Cartoon Network, I didn't know till I saw an episode with different voices. It was great! A lot of stuff was cut out in the 4kids dub, and the voices were downright awful. Especially sanji's retarded voiceAnyway, the FUNimation dub is really more loyal to the original, and featured a lot of things 4kids left out, like blood, dialogue, or even entire arcs! They cut out one part about a whale and a lighthouse, which at the time didn't seem like much more than filler, but as it turns out, was the background story for a new friggin crew member! So basically, 4kids had completely ruined continuity. The FUNimation dubs on CN was the best thing that ever happened! Yup! All 15 episodes it ran. CN canceled it for no friggin reason, even though the FUNimation dub was quickly gaining much higher ratings than the 4kids one.The main reason I am angry, is that I can't watch the GOOD version o One Piece on tv, because CN is stupid. And I can't watch it on the internet, because FUNimation is too copyright...y... And the DVDs are quite expensive. I can't watch 4kids version now, knowing all the stuff that's missing. All the wounds that should be there. All the facts that have been ignored. All the 9 year old voices on 20 year old men. All the serious themes dumbed down for stupid 8 year with their fingers up their noses! (okay, so my finger is in my nose now, but that's not the point!Basically, this is a rant. Anyway, if anyone likes One Piece, please discuss how idiotic and retarted 4kids is, and how you hope they get ****ed in the *** with an iron stick hard from multiple angles for making a great series just udder ****!

What do the symbols on the head of Japanese cartoon animation mean?

While watching some Japanese cartoons on TV, I always noticed that some symbols appear on the head of the characters. Sometimes a sweat drop appears when they are aggravated or embarrassed. Sometimes I have seen what looks like crosses, periods and other symbols and shapes. Since I am not familiar with Japanese culture, can someone explain me what these symbols mean? Thank you.

Any Ideas on making a stop motion animation station?

I am wanting to make a stop motion animation kiosk for kids to make short animations.  I'd like it to have a simple design using a mac mini, buttons for shooting frames of an animation, playing the animation and deleting the animation.  ideally this would email the animation to an email address. Where would I start? Thank you.

Gripping your Bokken

Hey you sword gurus of I'ble. I have a question, is it appropriate to cover your bokken's handle ( gripping it ) with coverings like tape, cloth or something like that? I mean I saw this on an anime called shaman king, where a character named ryu covers his bokken handle in cloth to have a better grip. I tried doing that, and it works. Now, what I am asking is that is this allowed? I mean will you get scolded at by your sensei or something in aikido or kendo practice for doing that? because people very rarely give their bokken a grip job, so would it kill the ' traditional ' wooden sword look? thanks in advance. P.S: I just finished making a nice, homemade bokken, so expect a bokken I'ble from me anytime soon!

Physics concepts flash animations

I stumbled on this site with all kinds of cool physics animations a few minutes ago. It has all sorts of animations illustrating physics concepts, from wave behavior to vectors to fluid mechanics to magnetism. It looks pretty cool. Some of the animations are more like just articles, and some are true animations. Requires flash to run.

Share Your Animations

I've been using Corel R.A.V.E for simple animations. I am an amateur at it, but I got simple creations out of it. But I wonder if there are other types of animation creators out there. I would like to see from the Instructables community some animations they made too. Post them here for everyone to see!

Animal Questions

Welcome to Animal Care, Rescue, and Rehabilitation! Here you can learn how to nurse wild or domestic animals back to health, share your knowledge and experience, or give simple tips and tricks. Any Instructables involving animal care of any kind are welcome. You can ask questions here regarding animal care in this topic. ( Example: I just saw a baby bird fall out of it's nest, what do I do?) I might not be able to help you in some cases (I know most about rabbits), but hopefully others can.

Type of Animation

So I saw this video which is a wonderful video on physics: http://vimeo.com/64951553 I really love the video content but was unsure about the name of the type of animation she used. Also, I was unsure about how I could go about doing this type of animation or similar. A few days ago, it struck me that technically speaking, she could have drawn a frame and then redrawn it multiple times and played them. Unfortunately, this is a huge amount of work to do so I was also wondering whether there was a faster way to achieve this type of animation (assuming I already have all the frames for a regular animation without the moving lines). I am not exactly a genius in the art and animation field but was very curious. I guess it would be possible to do a small scale animation like a title where I could write a title or something and then redraw it five or six times as close as possible and make it a GIF image but again, on a larger scale there would be a huge amount of work that would needed to be done.

Eating Meat and Overpopulation

I'm not try to start a flame war just wanna bounce some Ideas around. If everyone stopped eating meat and animal products (total vegan). What would happen to the animal population. I think at first it would increase dramatically, then after humans started to consume more and more fruits and vegetables there would be a shortage of food ether for humans or animals (most likely animals). Which would cause a sharp decrees in animal population (possible extinction of species lower on the chain). Or if there is not enough fruits and vegies for humans, they will be forced to eat animals. What do you think?

Cloned animals for human consumption : what's the point ?

This evening, at the TV News, they announced that cloned animals are going to be authorized for human consumption in USA, and that the EU may also authorize that since they did not find any difference with meat from non cloned animals ...Here is an article on New York Times : http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/01/15/cloned-animals-safe-to-eat-fda-concludes/?hpWell, if it's safe, why not ... But what's the point about cloning them anyway ???We breed them, there is not problem, they make baby, we eat them all ... everything works perfectly since the beginning of times ... So, what's the point ?!Any idea ?

Cruelty to animals isn't okay...

Personally, I'm not an activist or animal maniac of any kind... but I find this instructable really irresponsible for the site to host and promote: "DIY Kitty Crack: ultra-potent catnip extract" The debate in the comments alone discusses how dangerous this can be for animals... and whereas I'm sure instructables bears no responsibility for what users do with their newly found knowledge, there's a line you guys should draw in the sand:  don't support teaching people how to kill domesticated animals. Take it down...

Needed sound fx and voiceover Animation programs?

Firstly I do not want a complicated or high end professional stop motion program. I also do not want to spend more than say $80 dollars. I want it to have sound capability such as sound fx and voiceover. I do not want to have to export to another program to add sounds. It is for windows use by the way not mac.I will be using it with a Logitech Pro 9000 webcam.All your suggestion helps me to take decision !!
