Top Anime to RP

1 - Probably Goblin Slayer. Seems like it could be a good universe but perhaps needs to be expanded on more, I like the thought of working up from nothing in a pretty harsh world

2 - One Punch Man/My Hero Academia. These are in some ways kind of similar so I'd be kind of good with either just doesn't feel like it'd ever be active enough for some reason...

3 - Bleach/Naruto. Uh well I mean they're a little older now but they've got pretty good universes for RPing in, Bleach more so than Naruto I guess? I find some Naruto Rp's spread people too thin or bunch them up too much and it kind of makes it either hard to RP or undesirable to RP in, plus both these types tend to need a lot of people imo to work really well...that's just in my experience.

Posting Speed Preference

I like my RP's a bit faster paced...find it keeps me more engaged and interested, keeps me excited. I find once it gets past a day or so for a reply each time...uh...just gets...boring. It all feels like it starts to move too slow and advancement isn't made fast enough so story's just die out along with interest, this is just my experience though.

RP Requirements

I'm a number 3 kind of guy. I find one liners don't give enough to reply to but at least a paragraph should give someone enough to reply to and doesn't take that much longer either so seems alright. I don't mind people writing longer than that, I like it but yeah one paragraph minimum for me.

---

I personally just find there aren't so many RP's anymore and that RPing is probably dying? moving on? I dunno but it's still really enjoyable just hard to find a dedicated and motivated group of people to keep something alive and going strong these days. Most RP's seem to die in under a week or just over a week, which suuuucks considering someone may have put a lot of time and effort into the idea only for it to flop so quickly.

I do find there are some interesting RP's but considering most of my interest in RPing is usually anime related yeah...I don't see all that much that's interesting for me atm. That and...uh...this place seems like it's dying and other places don't seem much better? So maybe we could just pull people together to make some big and good RP that'll give us something to look forward to when we wake up and finish work/school/WhateverYouDoIDontJudge

Top Animes to RP
1. Sports Types currently
-There are a lot of moving parts, therefore there are a lot of things for players to do. The amount of detail that can go into a post is quite vast. What your player/character is doing, planning, thinking, seeing, reacting to. Thats all things one can throw into a post. Then comes a reaction with just the same amount detail because they have to react to the previous post and create their own actions. However, my only concern with this is that it needs a larger group of players to take up roles so it can be a fully fleshed out roleplay.

2. Bleach
-Because Bleach. Kidding aside. Within Bleach, there is a wealth of detail the players can already use. I think I speak for anyone that read the manga from beginning to the end that the ending was garbage and did not justify the memories it brought us. Therefore, we the players can pick up where the manga left off, expand on it, and make it something we would have loved to see.

3. Goblin Slayer
-I've always liked MMOs. The leveling, gaining gear, taking on missions, and other things one can do in an MMORPG is what makes things like this fun. Goblin Slayer, given its well known brutal nature, can serve as a great starting point for something we the players can expand on. It is a relatively new anime/light novel series so there are not too much information in terms of what is set in stone. Therefore we the players can take what we know and just meld it into something we like.

Posting speed
-Personally, I prefer a faster paced roleplay. Now, I'm not saying we turn this place into a chatroom and just shoot one liner back and forth. Thats how it was when I started/first discovered forum-based roleplaying years ago. The pace was insane. You blink and you'd be pages behind. However, that sort of pace was invigorating. However, it is not currently sustainable. The people I met during those times all grew up obviously. We do have the same sort of time to devote to roleplaying and posting as we did back in those days. However, keeping a regular pace within a roleplay is what keeps it fresh and alive. To be quite honest, I tend to get antsy if a reply doesn't happen to my post within a couple of days. I'm by no means pushy and require my partners to constantly check and post replies. However, some regularities in posting and replying would be nice.

RP Requirements
-Eh. I'm not too fussy. One paragraph would be fine. However, I just ask that the player put in as much effort as I do. Give me enough to give you a good reply. One liners will most likely be met with another one liner because there wasn't a whole lot of information for me to go off of. Paragraphs of detail? I'd be obligated to reply to everything you said and then give you things to reply to as well so the post will obviously be a longer one. Thats all I ask. Give me something substantial to reply to, so we can all benefit from it.

---------------------------

Honestly. I get that inspiration come and go. Muse comes and go. We all hit it rough patch from time to time and go a bit stagnant. That is totally fine. We're all human and we go with highs and lows. Posting and finding inspiration to create isn't a problem when other things in life is going well. When things starts to head downhill as they inevitably do, creativity and muse tend to go down with it. I think we're all here to capture some sort of magic we felt somewhere. Through literature, cinema, plays or whatever it was that inspired you. We're all here to take on a different mantle. We're here, perhaps not to capture a feeling, but to escape something. We let ourselves fall into a created world and escape whatever it is that is bothering us in the real world. Thats the magic of roleplaying. We're all here to create. The purpose of this thread is to facilitate that. Help each other find a common interest and to create something spectacular from it.

This may be too blunt, but my opinion reflects the title.

I guess for me I'd go with:

- Out of the list of Anime to RP, I have only seen Bleach so that'd be one I wouldn't mind taking part in.

- Out of posting speed, in my opinion, to keep the momentum going I'd say I prefer 1; Fast, a post every 6 hours.

- Post length I'm Okay with 2, a one-liner here or there isn't too bad since it could help with the fast responses, as long as it isn't too often like the free section RPs.

@AristoWhy did you take your time to write out a response?

You saw the list and saw the list of topics. They're obviously not your thing. Why shitpost?

You're welcome to stay and chat with us if you have something constructive, otherwise please excuse yourself.

Thanks.

The options are entirely unappealing to me, and so I found the title quite directly reflected my opinion. The kicker for commenting was the implication in the title that there's nothing good and that the thread is trying to introduce good, when I find other options are of marginal, though incomplete interest, while this provides none at all. In short, I found it ironic.

@ArenaSnow

Oh Yikes! If only someone had read things properly. Perhaps you should try again and be a little more useful this time around and actually contribute something useful or if you happen to be unable to actually give any useful input...well...don't comment at all. Just saying~

Edit: Also Just to say~ Maybe by being useful and actually listing things you're interested in! you may actually introduce others to those things you're interested in and hey who knows...maybe down the road an RP may pop up for said thing you listed way back then...no one will know if you don't share.

There's a little thing called getting an impression. By what someone wants to do, you know what they are interested in, and pushing constructs through the hole that are entirely different to every option posed in the first stream of ideas is far too likely to result in an OP simply not passionate about the alternatives. At this rate, I'm not even sure I'd want to follow the ideas with this lovely crowd of gentlemen anyways. Thank you for your immensely useful input, and if you ever need a one way ticket to the gulag, I would be happy to provide at any time.

Do you have any particular RP ideas you'd like to share? Since OP obviously wants to get something going that people would be interested in joining, as they asked for ideas too. This is a general interest check after all xD

If you don't want to share then that's fine, the point of this was to ask for input but I don't think what you've said so far has been of much help

Nah, I don't particularly care anymore. Input was given, and it was taken. However useful you find it doesn't matter to me.

The sorry truth is that no matter what I propose, it will either not come to fruition by this audience, or I simply won't give enough shits to see it through. So, I'll see myself out.

Well that's quite negative thinking but suit yourself. Since you simply cannot be bothered to partake in, suggest or create an RP then commenting here has pretty much been a waste of your time xD Either way, alright ^-^
