If it was done well, sure. I watch Starcraft from time to time, and it's exciting, but i'm not sure if a show about progamers would turn out that well.
There's certainly enough conflict/tension between teams/players to happen.
There's potential if they portray what's happening ingame really well
Does Hotshot still post in /vg/?
>little girls calling each other noobs and and flaming in all chat

Sounds like something out of Kawahara Reki head, but could work.
If they can make a show about Karuta and Mahjong interesting, I don't see why they can't do the same to video games.
There are bugs and viruses living in the database, and as the madness of the system grows, programmer Protag sends programmed Pokemon to cleanse the system in a battle sweetened with CG splenda.
>You will never be as cool as Firebathero senpai
If it was star craft related or had him in it, I'd love it.
I'd watch it regardless. People really don't understand that like a real sport the amount of practice they put in is insane.
They could make a really dramatic show starting at the prime of bw and tracing savior's descent and bw's fall
would watch the shit out of it
As long as it's about BW and includes the TITTY SAMBO, sure.
If it was about Navi or Bigdaddy.
Yes, but I think it would have real potential as an anime.
Or I guess they could show oov in the beginning of the game dealing with everyone hating him and managing a relationship at the same time...
Or B teamers leaving bw to form IM and dominating sc2.
Either of those could be fun plotlines
They win the U-whateverage world championship, faggot.
The only reason they don't win the world cup is because the author doesn't write about it happening, for now it's all clubfaggotry where Tsubasa shitstomps everyone as usual.
But we already have one
I would like to point out, that insertion sort does really well for small sets, so using a hybrid of merge sort and insertion sort works really well.
It also does perform really well for almost sorted sets, so when there is coherence you can exploit, for example when coding sweep and prune as collision detection broadphase, then you an use it as well.
So even though it's O(n²), it has it's uses.
The concept is workable, but I wouldn't trust the average Nip writer to not turn the main character into some variation of Yugi or Kirito who all-but-cheats to win and people love him for it.
I'd watch a bloody monday anime if it was done right
I already am. Kirito is the best programmer in the world, because he learned from american internet forums. He's so good that he's developing his own neural man-machine interface, while still having time to play MMOs and go to high school.
Will they make a 2d version of tossgirl?
Will we see her naked?
Only with the Genshiken cast.
Would be so nice to watch/read.
I want to watch an anime about EE and Froggen where they use the power of friendship to beat the soulless chinks and gooks
They should make one about korean fighting game pro Infiltration. He's one of us, after all.
>Would you watch an anime about progamers?
In Korea, gaming is a big entertainment industry and there are televised shows on gaming competitions as well as a cable channel for gaming. You get an inkling about mmorpg games being broadcast via gaming TV stations and networks from the korean light novel "Legendary Moonlight Sculptor". I've often wished there were fansubs of some of these korean tv shows showing quests or contests as they progressed.
It would have to be a simple game like Quake or something. If it was a strategy game/ASSFAGGOTS or something there would just be deus ex machina asspulls everywhere.
Quake/Arena shooters have simple rules that are easy to work with. That's why mahjong, at least in Akagi's case works. You know the rules and the plays they make are impressive because of it.
I mean they're not simple, but you can learn the basics and a bit more in a short amount of time. It's also a preexisting game, whereas something like Dota 2 has way too many intricacies to get across in an anime, and they can't make up a game for the anime in particular without coming up with convenient asspull rules that get revealed whenever the MC needs them.
Quake is a simple, preexisting game. You move around, shoot the other guy, control the map and manage your stack. It's simple, but hard. Easy to adapt into anime form.
We've already had a show about programmers and yes they were girls and yes they were magical girls who did magic by programming. It came out just a few years ago, it was called Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou and it was shit.
Considering this board's fixation with A) Insisting that post 2008 anime has a lot to offer and B) Calling people casual when they don't like poorly made cute girl shows it's pretty laughable how downright awful the board's powerlevel is.
HERE COMES LIGHTOFHEAVEN FOR THE HUGEST BLACKHOLE
TI2 never forget...
IdrA was the best not because he was a good player, but because he had a personality.
I stopped watching SC2 because all the kora-bots are so fucking bland and characterless I really can't root for anyone.
They all look the same, they all say the same shit ("I want to say thanks to my fans and I'm going to try to give them an entertaining match") over and over again, and there's never any real rivalry there.
And the interviews between matches. Oh god. That's some industrial-strength awkwardness.
Battle Programmer Shirase wasn't really about programming, BPS himself was a hacker and the plot of each episode revolved around him hacking as opposed to programming. It was fun though.
>I stopped watching SC2 because all the kora-bots are so fucking bland and characterless I really can't root for anyone.
yeah, same here. SC2 was a million times more enjoyable when we had big western tournaments like MLG without any koreans. I watched everything back then, but now I can't remember the last time I watched a game of SC2.
MC probably the only fun Korean player. At least that I can think of from the top of my head. I haven't been following the game for a long time now.
I know man, it's sad.
I really liked SC2. It's a fun game to play and fun game to watch. Especially with good casters.
BTW I just started up a stream of Acer vs Liquid. Why the fuck MMA's SCVs look so weird?
Boss toss is probably the only fun one. He like to troll a lot too.
They're still based. They've been playing a bit together on stream.
Sing's stream has dropped considerably in quality though. I miss the times when he could actually read the chat. Twitch chat wasn't a shithole memesprout competition back then either.
