    Name that Director!

    Hey Outlaws!

    As you may or may not know, OLS had more than one animation director working on it at a time, hence why the way characters are drawn in certain episodes may end up looking very different from others. This was a common thing, especially in 90s anime, simply because it was a fast, cost efficient method of animating.

    Anyway, Mantis and I had the idea to make a game out of it-- I'm going to give a list of directors with a frame from each of their work, then go through each episode starting from the beginning, it's up to you the players to guess which animator worked on it simply by the style, way it was drawn, etc.

    Your choice of directors today will be:

    A, Takuya Saito



    B, Akiharu Ishii



    C, Natsuki Egami



    Each player will be allowed a maximum of one answer each, after a certain number of replies I will pick the winners. Try not to just randomly guess either, take some time to look at the frames and carefully decide who you think it is, you'll get a bonus point if you include reasoning. And no looking up the answers yourself, or I'll know!

    Anyway, without further ado, let's begin!

    Episode 1: Outlaw World







    Name that director!

    Finally done with most of my current work. I've been looking forward to this game, great job. So...

    Takuya Saito? *crosses fingers*

    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    It's a good guess! But is it the right one? :p Come on guys, feel free to join in! (and don't mind the 'test run' in the title, I tried to change it but I'm not sure if it's possible...)

    I'll do what I can to get others to join in. Here's an extra incentive: for this first round I'll give the winner 500W. Wong will become much more useful later on.

    So we each vote basically until the round is over? I'm going with C: Natsuki Egami personally then. Something about the eyes...

    Yep! That seemed to be the best way to handle this since I want to be as inclusive as possible. I think I'm going to keep votes open until 6PM tomorrow, so another 24 hours, after which we'll begin the next round.

    There's still time to participate, and remember; there's 500W in it for the lucky winner!

    6PM tomorrow what timezone? I ask because it's already 6:30PM for you, and 1:30PM for me- meaning it'd be 24 hours, I think? I'm confused. But yes, 500W! And more importantly...There's fun to be had!

    Oh crap, I completely forgot to announce the winners! Bear with me a minute guys, I'll be more on point next time.

    Mantis. Your choice of option A, Takuya Saito, was...

    Eh-Ehhh!



    That was the incorrect answer, sorry!


    Juneberry. You decided to go with C, Natsuki Egami, which means you were...

    Ding ding ding!



    That was the correct answer! Well done. You get two points, the first for guessing correctly and the second for including a reason for your answer. The way the eyes are drawn was indeed a valid point, and as a clue for future rounds I'll just say: scars.


    That means Juneberry walks away with the 500W prize money! Thank you to everyone who participated, hopefully more of you will choose to join in on the next round... which I will organize tomorrow, as I really need some sleep.

    Juneberry: 2
    Mantis: 0

    Normally I have a horrible eye for detail, so I'm shocked I actually managed to get it right. And scars huh? Good to know to keep that in mind!
