Why its that there is more parody and game related stuff than normal fantasy?

Can't japan into high fantasy or its just japan doesn't even like high fantasy in first place?

The only good thing to come out of fantasy anime or manga or LN shit is Slayers

Everything else is godawful at worst and mediocre at best

>>137203894
They're much less rooted in WE WUZ DUNGEONS N DRAGONS N SHIEET(what I think of when someone broadly states 'fantasy anime' and posts maou') and stand out as unique settings that aren't just 'generic japanese rpg world but with this twist on the dynamics'. They don't use cliches as a crutch to form a setting.

Her design and her everything checks all the right boxes. I heard she was ten times as lewd in the manga too.

I miss average j-rpg, not mostly everything is actionbased and the few classic jrpg are either for phones or portable or online bullshit.

I want DQ, Suikoden, Bof and the like to return to the big consoles

I wish there was more of my favorite genre in my favorite media, I would wellcome with open arms high fantasy anime with its own lore that doesn't have anything to do with D&D

But I understand that how the industry works is more easy go just for generic fantasy with elves and dwarfs since for building a complete setting you would need 50 episodes and now that kind of series are almost exceptional.
>>
>>137202791
Because their default brand of fantasy is Dragon Quest, not D&D. And what little "proper" fantasy we got in recent times didn't really do that well, sadly.

now write that again with a straight face
>>
>>137204919
Am I typing funny? I say and write things kind of odd even though English is my only language.

I didn't say anything off. I haven't seen Twelve Kingdoms, but Berserk is not completely dependent on magic and stock fantasy races and character types. They are there in part of course, but it is not the backbone of the world, it is not just 'fantasy rpg world but with this twist'
>>
>>137204876
It seems at least Arslan did well
>>
>>137205238
Arslan is jack shit as far as fantasy goes, this new version even less than original.
>>
>>137205197
What you say about berserk was true until the finish of the troll arc, since then became more and more generic fantasy.

Not that I dislike it now or something, but I miss the dark fantasy part, it made it feel unique now is like reading any other fantasy with its dragons, undead pirates and goblins

Even if that is true, it's worlds and worlds away from anything else in anime or manga

There are no other parties of flat adventurers or demon kings to my knowledge

shit design just for fanservice...well every design in the manga its shit
>>
>>137206483
Overlord was just too deep for you, I suppose.
>>
>>137203295
My guess is because guns are the great equalizer. In the (high) middle ages, there was a warrior nobility because only they could afford the best weapons, the best armor and the best training. Guns had better armor-piercing capabilities than any other weapon seen since (though not perfect, as even Napoleonic cuirassiers wore cuirasses that were deemed bullet proof) which speeded the movement away from feudal armies towards professional standing armies. This more or less made the nobilty a leisure class with nothing going for them other than old titles and privileges. When the French bourgeoise figured that out, they put they abolished the nobility.

>>137203565
Right. Much softer design, which actually fits her personality. The right looks more like an actual demon though, she's much "sharper" in design.
>>
>>137205490
>There are no other parties of flat adventurers or demon kings to my knowledge

Fun thing is that we saw that parodied to death, but if you think about it there isnt much of those...its more, there is even just a single one of those?

We have this for that.

Problem is...well, there is so much shit on it that one doesn't really know where to start.

I think the first 2 lines are pretty safe. Except may be QB, although I always thought QB is a good high fantasy anime from the high fantasy point of view its terrible in so many ways, but its basically Conan the barbarian with tits.

In Berserk or in anything nipponji?

This list should be expanded

>No Bikini Warriors

Then again, the guy who made the original might not even be around to update it.

>the guy who made the original might not even be around to update it.

Actually I am, I'm a fantasy bitch after all. And actually tried to update it long ago but there is no way of adding more rows without the chart being to heavy or too small too read so I started a part 2 but never finished.

There is also Garo, Bahamut genesis, Nanatsu, Akame ga kill akatsuki no yona, Maria. Danmachi Arslan, Gate...
>>
>>137211633
I see. In that case a part 2 would be the best idea. I hope you'll get around to it sometime.

Compression.

If you don't like that then just upload it to imgur and provide a link here. You don't need a second image.

Rance has to be at fault for all of this level shit. There's no other explanation. And all these idiots forget that one
>Rance is a VIDEO GAME series where there are ACTUALLY LEVELS SO IT MAKES SOME SENSE FOR CHARACTERS TO HAVE LEVELS
And two
>Rance has had 25+ years to develop a relatively big setting through a dozenish games and setting material (i.e. artbooks)
>>
Sure I do, none particularly come to mind, but wouldn't you say most anime are fantasy?
>>
>>137202791
>Why its that there is more parody and game related stuff than normal fantasy?
Because old fashioned fantasy played relatively straight like Orphen or Record of the Lodoss War isn't the trend currently.
