An anime based system by Wise Turtle. It's pretty awesome. Anyone wanna play? Run?

I've been itching to give that a go, I'd be willing to play!

Any idea for a setting?

I'm not 100% set on a setting, though there are a few things I've wanted to run;

Power Rangers <- I've wanted to run a game in this setting for a while, but most systems were either too complicated to run it or just wouldn't. OVA seems promising. Though, due to the structure of how Power RAngers usually functions with all its tropes, this might not be very realistic. I'd need at least 3 players though.

One Piece <- If ever there was an appropriate system...this is it. I do get kind of particular with the formula of how the protagonist characters are built though..so it's iffy, not to mention, would be nice to have more players, though it's not super hard to add more characters in.

Slayers <- Very open-ended setting, could be fun to run something like this, can be done with few players easily since the series technically started off with just the two, and it's easy for more to join in after the start.

I'm sure there are others I could run, just not thinking of them right this moment because I'm tired... lol

Having just read over some of the quick characters on the kickstarter page, this seems like a pretty neat system. I'd be willing to play in a game of it too.

I guess I really just need a setting then. Feel free to throw out suggestions and I'll pick one based on how familiar I am with the setting.

I would be comfortable with Slayers, but I really like One Piece. So One piece.

I didn't mean just pick from what I suggested, lol. You guys can suggest other stuff too.

There is a lot of cool anime out there and by extension, video games originating from Japan often have a strong anime flavor that works well here too. Final Fantasy for example.

We don't need to be overly limited by the three I mentioned.

Oh don't worry, I wasn't limiting myself, I just really want to do a One Piece game.

Well that's three for three on One Piece...sooo yeah... I'll come up with some plot for One Piece.

A general query though: I've played in a few One Piece games that sort of fall flat, both running parallel to the anime, which is tricky because you have to consider things already going on and how they affect what you players are doing and vice versa, but also running as an original timeline without the Strawhat crew, which runs into the adventure folding out differently due to different characters with different motivations and plot seeds (or character trying to emulate existing characters too closely)

So my query is, what KIND of One Piece game do you guys want to see? My experiences with them have been iffy. What kinds of characters do you want to play? Are you all planning on being devil fruit users? Any non-humans?

Hm.... I think it'd be fun to possibly be a pirate crew who were inspired by the White Beard War and Luffy's antics there, and thus set off on their quest a bit later in the wake of the Straw Hats, but I'm down for almost anything.

As for a character I was thinking along the lines of Kaylee from Firefly but a bit younger, a teen prodigy shipwright (I discovered that playing younger characters adds a very fun dynamic to a game as long as people don't get creepy, they also have a greater sense of vulnerability and lack of responsibility.).  Was thinking she could be either a devil fruit user who ate the Bat-Bat fruit (Found a cool picture to go with this), or a Crab Fishperson (BIG CLAAAAAWS!!!!).

I like the idea of playing Pirates, it is one piece after all, that is the thing to do. :P
