Nintendo looking for an anime series 3D designer

Nintendo posts new job listings every day, but they've just shared one that's pretty different from the usual. Apparently Nintendo is trying to hunt down an anime series 3D designer. There's no other details on what kind of project they're looking to adapt into anime, but we'll keep tabs on the situation to try and find out more.

Maybe they're planning on doing animated shorts for an upcoming game, akin to what they did with Kid Icarus: Uprising. I'd be totally on board with that since I enjoyed those shorts (been a long while since I last watched them though).

Personally I'm hoping for Star Fox like they did with Zero more than Uprising. Pikmin could also be a possibility I assume.

Personally I like the animation of BBK/BRNK. I'd love their team to work with Nintendo.

Ah, yes. The memorable franchises like Breaking Bad Kingdoms and Bowser Rides Nifty Karts.

(But really, what are those abbreviations...?)

I never understood people using LMGTFY links. Obviously I know how to Google, but it might surprise you that asking actual people questions (instead of an internet search machine) produces interesting answers and promotes conversation and discussion, which is kinda the point of this comment section.

You of all people, with long posts, should understand that, right?

"but it might surprise you that asking actual people questions (instead of an internet search machine) produces interesting answers and promotes conversation"

If the question asked had an interesting or complex answer, then that is what would have been provided.

"You of all people, with long posts, should understand that, right?"

I do not think 'What is this?' 'It's an anime.' warrants much elaboration.

He could've talked about what he likes about it, why he wants that animation. Maybe there's a specific reason?
A lot of conversations and discussions start with simple and straight questions. I feel like I shouldn't need to tell you this.

In fact, I met my best friend through a question "What's that?"

They could have. They did not.

Those are answers to different questions than the one posed.

...It's almost as if you don't understand how conversations can emerge. Which is kinda ironic, because a discussion emerged between us from my simply question

And I'm 100% sure you grasp that concept. So now I think you're just arguing for the sake of arguing

"So now I think you're just arguing for the sake of arguing"

I do not consider this much of an argument. You asked a question. I answered it in a comprehensive manner.

I also subtly tried to warn you that you were asking the incorrect question for the information I suspected you actually wanted, which was borne out rather predictably by the response you eventually got. This apparently dissatisfied you, and I am still working to determine why.

(Given that you are choosing to focus on this rather than to rephrase yourself or even to follow your question up, I get the sense you were not all that interested in the original line of conversation to begin with.)

"Which is kinda ironic, because a discussion emerged between us from my simply question"

You seem to think my position is that questions cannot lead to conversations: In actuality, my position is that vacuous questions lead to inane conversations.

This exchange has not contravened that point, lol.

The way I see how this went.

1. I ask a question
2. You give a LMGTFY link, implying I should've Googled instead of asking
3. I give my stance on why I asked instead of Googling, saying it can lead to conversation
4. You say that only complex questions can lead to interesting conversations
5. I give two examples and one piece of anecdotal evidence why that's not the case
6. You say that wasn't the case here, but acknowledge it would've been possible

the information I suspected you actually wanted
You suspect wrong, and it's wrong you even suspected this, because nothing indicated as much. I literally asked for the information I explicitly and actually wanted; I made no mistake there. Anything else I get told is then a bonus but is not something I actually set out to find out. Then, this extra information I'm told could lead to further questions and answers. In other words, a conversation and/or discussion.

"The way I see how this went."

If you insist:

1. You asked a silly question.
2. I answered the silly question but thought it would be more polite to merely imply its silliness rather than go on at length about it.
3. You asserted that your silly question could promote an worthwhile discussion.
4. I said, no, your specific (silly) question was not going to do that and was an intellectual dead-end.
5. You brought up hypothetical interesting conversations that could have happened if you had asked other, less vapid questions.
6. I point out you did not ask those questions and that they would have been much better than the one you actually did.

"You suspect wrong, and it's wrong you even suspected this"

I was extending the benefit of the doubt in assuming that you wanted to ask a more meaningful question and merely misstated it. My apologies.

"I literally asked for the information I explicitly and actually wanted'

You asked for specific information that you could have easily gotten in two seconds on your own, but you chose to ask other people anyway on the off-chance that you would get additional information out of them that you did not actually care about, and were not interested in?

Okay, so your question was still foolish -- just for a different reason. Razz

"Anything else I get told is then a bonus but is not something I actually set out to find out."

Er, you just said you do not want that extraneous information.

"In other words, a conversation and/or discussion."

No offense, but 'I desperately hope I get a bonus of unwanted, unnecessary information that I never asked for' is certainly one of the more alien conceptions of a conversation that I have ever seen.

Honestly, I really don't get you. I don't think I did anything wrong by asking a question, yet you insist to hammer on (no pun intended) as if I committed some sort of foul and need to explain my crimes. You're not really being funny, or clever, and you're not really providing me a service if that's what you thought. You're honestly just being a snide ass now, and I'd wish you to stop. We've had this conversation before, even.

What's worse is that by your own admission you like to poke fun at people like this, and it baffles me, especially since I showed a clear disinterest in being on the receiving end of it in the past. So, please just stop. Don't ever do this again with me.

Just to clarify, this doesn't mean I will stop talking with you or won't take you seriously anymore. I'll still read your posts (I don't believe in blocking people) and I will still respond to them if I feel I have something to add. But I hope in the future, the response I get from you has at least some sliver of respect.

I don't think I did anything wrong by asking a question

Neither does he, but you certainly seem to think he is wrong for answering your (pointless) questions.

You're not really being funny, or clever

I beg to differ. This conversation only strengthens the well-established fact that he is the funniest and smartest person on this website

You're honestly just being a snide ass now.

*gasp*

Reported.

I'd wish you to stop

Maybe you should stop with all the inane questioning and rambling.

especially since I showed a clear disinterest in being on the receiving end of it in the past.

In that case, you should stop asking for it.

So, please just stop. Don't ever do this again with me.

He can do and say as he pleases as long as it is within the site's rules. You wouldn't be suggesting that he... censor himself, would you?

Just to clarify, this doesn't mean I will stop talking with you or won't take you seriously anymore.

I'm sure he's breathing a sigh of relief.

Spoiler

But I hope in the future, the response I get from you has at least some sliver of respect.

You don't demand respect, you earn it.

I think you're just arguing for the sake of arguing

The irony is crushing.

I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve here, especially since I said I wanted no more of this, you swoop in and take over? I'll humor it this once... (And probably only once.)

Neither does he, but you certainly seem to think he is wrong for answering your (pointless) questions.
Nah. I don't mind him answering my questions. I ask them for a reason, after all. I don't even really mind LMGTFY links if they come from the person I asked the question to. What I take an issue with is his attitude, and how he goes on and on about something that doesn't seem worth it. I asked a question, got a LMGTFY link, expressed my opinion, and he took it from there.

I beg to differ. This conversation only strengthens the well-established fact that he is the funniest and smartest person on this website
I'm not even denying he has humor or smarts. I can agree with that. But what I said back there is that at that point, he wasn't being either, since it's not funny when it's at someone's expense. That's just being an ass.
Also, an opinion can't be a "well-establish fact". Come on now...

Maybe you should stop with all the inane questioning and rambling.

I don't know how high your horse must be if the two questions I asked count as inane, or what I said counts as rambling. It's something I honestly don't get. You may disagree with me, sure. But none of what I said was rambling and my two questions weren't inane. They were fair questions. You're just using words with negative connotations to look down on me, and it's not appreciated, just like what Hamr does.

You don't demand respect, you earn it.
And when did I exactly demand it? And wow, you don't even think I'm deserving of respect? My lord, I don't know what I did to warrant that... This is borderline bullying now. I'm a human being just like anyone else, you know.

The irony is crushing.
I am defending myself here. That's not arguing for the sake of arguing. Sure enough, I could ignore you two guys, but I don't really believe in ignoring or blocking people. I always want to believe people can talk things out and come to a mutual understanding.
Hamr, and now you, on the other hand, seem really intent on talking down on me and making fun of me, and I honestly don't quite understand why.

*gasp*

Reported.

He can do and say as he pleases as long as it is within the site's rules. You wouldn't be suggesting that he... censor himself, would you?
I'm sure he's breathing a sigh of relief.
I understand it's sarcasm and jests, but I don't understand why you feel the need for this. Jokes are all well and good, until the person on the receiving end makes clear it's not appreciated. At that point, it just becomes bullying

"Honestly, I really don't get you."

There is not much to get.

"I don't think I did anything wrong by asking a question, yet you insist to hammer on (no pun intended)"

I did not 'insist' on anything. I was perfectly fine not-elaborating my full interpretation of this exchange until you dragged it out of me, and I was fine extending you the benefit of the doubt until you got kind of huffy and went on about how wrong it was for me to do so. If you refuse to take any of the outs I offer, there is not a whole lot I can do to spare your feelings.

"as if I committed some sort of foul and need to explain my crimes."

Lol, I just told you my perspective: you asked a silly question. There is nothing wrong with asking a silly question, we all do it from time to time.

Heck, I ask tons of dumb questions (and say a lot of dumb things).

Spoiler

This is why the my original commentary consisted entirely of a lmgtfy link. As a means of registering disapproval, that is pretty mild, no?

You could have ignored that aspect of my response. You could have responded with a crack of your own. You could even have just laughed it off -- that is the option most people generally pick. Any one of those responses and I would have been on my merry way to other topics, making dated-references to the 80s that no one else gets and posting vaguely-amusing pictures of animals.

Instead you decided to take some kind of weirdly-humorless offense at it. Rather than just accept the information you were given in the way it was given, you decided to take a gentle dig personally and seriously when it was not intended as either.

This is presumably why you are doggedly insisting that no, no, you are *above* that, and your question about was actually profound because there was a genuine chance that someone might decide to answer 'it's a dopey japanese cartoon; now please wait a moment and listen while I bare my soul to you.' Laughing

Apologies, but that is too preposterous not to remark upon.

"You're honestly just being a snide ass now, and I'd wish you to stop."

Okay, so you are saying you would like for me to go back to being polite rather than candid. That I can do.

"We've had this conversation before, even."

I hate to break it to you, but one final bit of honesty: I have lots of conversations on this site (and on others) and I do not actually recall the vast majority of them. This time next week there is a decent chance I will not remember this one either.

"But I hope in the future, the response I get from you has at least some sliver of respect."

That is really not up to me. Respect is earned; not given.

Instead you decided to take some kind of weirdly-humorless offense at it.
I didn't really take offense at it, though. I just said I don't get it and explained my motivations for asking the question instead of simply Googling it. It was then you who rejected that motivation, as if I were wrong for thinking that way... That was when I started taking offense, especially when it started to become more and more mocking.

You could have ignored that aspect of my response. You could have responded with a crack of your own. You could even have just laughed it off -- that is the option most people generally pick.
I could've. I didn't. That's not who I am. I certainly can and do make jokes, but I guess a LMGTFY link isn't my kind of humor. Heck, truth be told, I don't even see the humor in it. ...It's a LMGTFY link, and that's it. It's as funny and offensive as a schoolbook (which is to say, it's neither). I'd understand the humor at least if I asked for a link and you posted an image of Link (as tried as that is).

This is presumably why you are doggedly insisting that no, no, you are *above* that, and your question about was actually profound because there was a genuine chance that someone might decide to answer 'it's a dopey japanese cartoon; now please wait a moment and listen while I bare my soul to you.'
That's a gross misinterpretation... For one, I didn't act profound or anything. I explained it rather simply... I ask a question instead of Googling it because I prefer the former over the latter. And why I prefer doing it that way is because then I can have some conversation or ask follow-up questions. That's not a strange thing. And I never said anything about baring any souls. I don't know why you feel the need to misrepresent my stance like that, because I'm sure you know it doesn't quite go that deep for me. I asked the question to Ai Rorel, I got a reply from him (her?), remarked on that reply, and that's it. I'm happy. That's what I did it for.
And I don't see why that's deserving of mockery.

Okay, so you are saying you would like for me to go back to being polite rather than candid. That I can do.
Thank you. That's all I ask. I don't mind talking about this. I mind being treated the way I did. Especially by MegaShock100 (though I know you don't really have control over his actions).

I hate to break it to you, but one final bit of honesty: I have lots of conversations on this site (and on others) and I do not actually recall the vast majority of them. This time next week there is a decent chance I will not remember this one either.
I'm not surprised, and I had thought as much. Truth be told, my memory isn't that great either, and I have plenty of conversations as well. I don't remember the contents of our previous conversation, but I remember the attitude, and it was exactly the same as this one. The fact that I still remember it should be a clue as to how much I dislike it.

That is really not up to me. Respect is earned; not given.
Sorry, but that's bollocks. Some cheesy one-liner does not make that true. Respect is default and only then lost. You should respect other people by default, or else it means you have a free pass to disrespect them before you even know them. Only after they've proven they don't deserve the respect can you say they don't deserve it. (Though I personally feel we should always respect others, regardless of how much you disagree.) On top of that, it's simply part of the site rules to treat each other like decent human beings.
And I can say this time and time again, but I really don't see what I did that made me lose respect and deserve mockery.

"I just said I don't get it and explained my motivations for asking the question instead of simply Googling "

Right, and as those motivations made even less sense to me (to the point where you ultimately said you did not even want any of them in the first place), they only begot further comment.

"I could've. I didn't. That's not who I am."

And it is not who I am to avoid poking fun at things that strike me as amusing.

Seeing a harmless joke taken much too seriously is one such thing.

"For one, I didn't act profound or anything"

We can agree to disagree on whether saying things like 'I met my best friend through a similar question' is trying to imply that asking about an anime could somehow result in meaningful relationships.

"Sorry, but that's bollocks"

No, it is really not. I cannot very well force myself to respect someone or something any more than I can force myself to like a color I am not fond of. It is not a conscious process or a choice. There are actions and attitudes that I see and I think 'Yes, those are things which are worthy' and there are others that I see and think 'No, those are things that we should work beyond'. We do not have control over the things we feel about each one.

For instance, I respect confidence, the belief by a person in oneself.

In contrast, I do not respect entitlement, the belief by a person that other people have to believe in that person.

It is not within my ability to voluntarily switch the two.

Whether I approve or disapprove of someone depends entirely on the actions they choose and whether those fall in accordance with the things that I respect or the things that I do not.

Spoiler

"On top of that, it's simply part of the site rules to treat each other like decent human being"

I think you are confusing 'respect' with 'courtesy'. The former is the personal internal admiration one feels for something. The latter is how one chooses to act.

I am perfectly fine with granting courtesy unconditionally. There are lots of positions that I do not necessarily respect but am absolutely willing to treat with civility.

Now on that point: I pretty strongly disagree with the assertion that calling something 'silly' or employing sarcasm is some flagrant and unacceptable violation of one's human dignity.

(And speaking purely of politeness, let us be perfectly fair: of the two of us, only one has actually resorted to outright name-calling.)

"You're honestly just being a snide ass now"

You do not see me complaining at length about not being treated with some arbitrary level of deference here because hey, it's a fair cop, but that is harsher and more personal than anything I have said to or about you.

Right, and as those motivations made even less sense to me
I still really don't know what's so hard to understand. I prefer asking questions instead of Googling. I don't even know why it matters to you why I prefer it that way, nor why it doesn't make sense to you. Especially since I really have said all I could on the matter...

Let me ask you a question. Do you have "inane" conversations with random people or strangers (store clerks, fellow passengers in public transport, etc.)? What I did is pretty much the online equivalent of that

We can agree to disagree on whether saying things like 'I met my best friend through a similar question' is trying to imply that asking about an anime could somehow result in meaningful relationships.
That's less me trying to be profound and more me being at the ends of my ropes and using anecdotal evidence to make you understand my point of view. At no point was I trying to make this sound any deeper than it is. It's really as simple as I explained above

I think you are confusing 'respect' with 'courtesy'.
Okay, fair enough. I'm not here to argue semantics. I didn't know of that difference. To me "treating someone with respect" means the exact same thing as how you describe "courtesy". Some elaboration behind a spoiler tag, because it's really neither here nor there:
Spoiler

In contrast, I do not respect entitlement, the belief by a person that other people have to believe in that person.
That also means this doesn't exactly apply anymore. I wasn't being entitled, I never demanded anything (I stood by that point from the beginning). I merely wanted something that any human being should get: Respect Courtesy

Now on that point: I pretty strongly disagree with the assertion that calling something 'silly' or employing sarcasm is some flagrant and unacceptable violation of one's human dignity.
It is bullying when the subject very clearly expresses it's not appreciated and wants no more. I'm not the kind who would just scream "That's offensive" to any non-PC joke. Heck, I like dark humor, for example. But what you (and especially MegaShock100) did was personal mockery. It was specifically targeted at me. And sure enough, that can be fun, if it's appreciated by the person being mocked. It wasn't appreciated in this case, though. That isn't to say that I can't appreciate a joke that pokes fun at me. Nah, my friends rag on me from time to time, and it's all in good fun. But in this case, it really seemed like you weren't just trying to have fun, but you were intentionally trying to make me look bad. That's how I saw it anyhow. (And with MegaShock100, there is absolutely no doubt he was flinging mud.)

(And speaking purely of politeness, let us be perfectly fair: of the two of us, only one has actually resorted to outright name-calling.)
Yes, and I do regret that, and for that I apologize. But in my defense, you were really pushing me. And though I wouldn't use the same language now, I do still stand by my point: If you personally and intentionally make fun of a single person, even after that person expresses displeasure, it's bullying. And that's what I took issue with.

Again, my issue isn't with you posting a LMGTFY link or disagreeing with my point of view; I can discuss that for weeks without issue. The issue was with your attitude of poking fun at me despite not really doing anything wrong. That's also why I was glad you finally decided to treat me with respect courtesy in the end. ...Just a shame MegaShock100 decided to jump in around the same time...

"I don't even know why it matters to you why I prefer it that way"

The simple answer is that it really does not matter to me all that much.

"Let me ask you a question. Do you have "inane" conversations with random people or strangers (store clerks, fellow passengers in public transport, etc.)?"

All the time.

In fact, I imagine many of my conversations with most people in general would be considered inane by others.

And if someone passing by said derisively 'Wow, real scintillating stuff there', would I take it seriously and treat it as some sort of affront to my self-worth? Lol, no.

"That also means this doesn't exactly apply anymore."

For the record, I was using those two things as an example of my point because they were just the first things I could think of off the top of my head that clearly reside in categories of 'what I respect' and 'what I do not respect'. I was not offering that as commentary on you in particular.

"But what you did was personal mockery. It was specifically targeted at me."

Well, no. I employ sarcasm and exaggeration toward everyone and about everything, frequently at even higher levels. That is just how I work. I am fairly sure that half of my posts on this site feature some combination of the word 'lol' and/or the razz emoticon. There is nothing personal or specific in any of it.

It is not that you or anyone else is being singled out for a remark from the peanut gallery. Everyone else just chooses not to treat the occasional pistachio as a bigger deal than it actually is.

"But in my defense, you were really pushing me."

Hey, I never said that calling me that was inaccurate, just that it was a double standard. Razz

Well, fair enough. I think we can close this conversation now, because we've really discussed everything there is and probably understand each other's viewpoints, and I respect that. (My definition of the word respect, anyhow.)

EDIT: In the future, I'll try to let mocking replies slide off me more instead of letting them stick to me. I can do that, as long as I can see it's not meant as a way to put me down or ridicule me (or anything like that).

Good lord, dude, you've really gone overboard.
Just tell him/her what the letters mean, instead of inciting a huge off-topic argument because you wanted to be snide instead of helpful.
Just telling him/her would have saved the rest of us a whole lot of scrolling, and would have made the both of you look a lot less ridiculous.

Damnit, I thought those were real videos and tried to find them.

Haha, I'm sorry. We can always ask some publishers real nicely to consider these movies!

Bubuki/Buranki. But they just abbreviated the name to BBK/BRNK to make it look more stylish.

I see. That reminds me a bit of how they abbreviate a lot of those long-winded anime names, except that this one isn't that long-winded at all.
I guess this is closer to Supipara being abbreviated to SPPL

Whatever they're doing, I hope they don't get the guys that did the new Berserk anime.

Don't worry, they're on their way to make the next Berserk arc.

PLEASE DO FIRE EMBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OKAY
Imagine it in the style of Pokemon Generations where they focus on all the games throughout the series! JUST WITH LONGER EPISODES! XD I honestly think it's between Fire Emblem and Zelda right now.

An orignal fire emblem or an adaption of a game?

Who cares?!?! I just want me some Fire Emblem!

Really don't want a Zelda anime. The series has already slipped too far in that direction, and I'd rather it climb back toward high fantasy. The structure of the games also doesn't suit a long-running series of toons. The stories play out very much like a movie.

Fire Emblem, Splatoon, or Star Fox would be great for an animated series - and Star Fox would be better handled in the style of the teaser cartoon we got for Zero.

Most other Nintendo IPs would be better suited to movies than anime/cartoon series.

I know 3rd party would make this hell, but a Smash anime would be amazing to me.
