If you call the Admins Magi or Seele, this problem goes away.

Another unusual association with me and Evangelion!  Wasn't it last year that someone suggested that I crossplay as Ritsuko Akagi, the female scientist in Evangelion? ;)  But anyway, I DO think a Neon Genesis Evangelion theme would be a GREAT idea for us to use someday, so please feel free to post your proposals.  HOWEVER, first we're going to wrap up and implement our "Manly-Man Ranking Theme Challenge"!

We've had a lot of good ideas posted the last few weeks, but the particularly macho concepts by KORfan, HuskerMoon, GundamCowboy, and Kurai_Kaze got me thinking about what makes a good man "manly".  And then nrohwer's excellent observation about the relative manly characteristics of different anime males prompted me to think... "What if we combine desirable manly characteristics and the anime men who have them!"  Our rankings could be of this format:
  • More burly than Major Alex Louis Armstrong
  • As suave as Miroku ;D
  • More powerful than Alucard
  • As mature as Shinji Ikari
  • Honorable like Vash the Stampede
  • More rugged than Space Pirate Captain Harlock
  • Less hairy than Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo
  • As relaxed as Spike Spiegel 8)
  • More mysterious than Golgo 13
  • As handsome as Tamahome
  • Not as strong as Ataru Moroboshi
  • As skillful as Arsene Lupine III
  • A leader like Colonel Roy Mustang
  • As helpful as Tuxedo Mask
  • Less forgiving than Char Aznable :P
You may have noticed that a few of the titles involve a bit of sarcasm. ::)  And, yeah, I know I thought of way too many, but it was a surprisingly fun list to work on! :)  Comments?  Got better anime characters for the characteristics?  Other manly traits and men I missed?  I'd love to hear them!

The above is just another idea, I still haven't locked in a winning Manly-Man theme.  So if you haven't expressed your opinion yet, or have been waiting to propose your magnificently macho measurement methodology for metering manliness, NOW is the time!   Thanks!

If anime has taught me anything, it's that drinking and smoking makes you stronger, faster and darn near bulletproof.

This sounds really cool.  I really like the Harlock one.

How about "Taller than Keichi Morisato" or something involving him?

Okay!  As promised, it's time to follow up Akari Hoshi's "Japanese School Girl" Forum ranking theme.  Yep, I'm implementing the...

Anime Manly-Man Forum Ranking Theme!
Here's the rank progression:
  • Confident as Shinji
  • Almost as suave as Miroku
  • Honorable like Vash the Stampede
  • Has the leadership skills of Colonel Roy Mustang
  • Gets more action than Gendo
  • More powerful than Alucard {Moderator}
  • Skillful as Arsene Lupine III {Administrator}

I thank everyone for their ideas and suggestions for this theme!  There were so many good thoughts, it was tough to distill out the best ones!

Thanks also to everyone who submitted other Forum ranking ideas along the way!  There are still several super concepts here that I plan to implement in the future, and we probably won't be able to use this "Manly-Man theme for TOO long! ::)   So please keep posting your rank concepts!  We'll definitely do this again soon, and your suggestion could be our next winner!  Remember that we need seven titles, (5 forum ranks, and 2 IDs for our Moderators and Administrators) in your theme.  (And if anyone talks to Naniki, please tell him that his Naruto dream theme is just missing one title! ;))

Until the theme muse strikes again... Go manly-men! ;D

How about something involving animals from Ghibli films?


Dust bunnies -- (Totoro)
Kodama        --  (Mononoke)
Jiji              ---    (Kiki)
Tehto          --  (Nausicaa)
Tanuki         --  (Ponpoko)


Totoro -- Moderator -- powerful, a little mysterious, cuddly
Ohmu -- Admin -- powerful, mysterious, wise

KORfan, I absolutely LOVE the Ghibli film animal idea!  We'll definitely come back and use that!  But first, we've got some old business to wrap up! ;)  The concept was suggested over two and a half years ago, but has been on hold waiting for an additional rank level.  But now, thanks to a helpful assist by n00b and MeraniEpop, the AnimeIowa Forums is thrilled to FINALLY launch...

Naniki's Naruto Ninja Ranking Theme!
Here's the rank progression:
  • Ninja Academy Student
  • Genin
  • Chuunin
  • Jounin
  • Kage
  • Legendary Sanin {Moderator}
  • ANBU Black Ops {Administrator}
We've had some late-breaking discussion about spellings and using "Kage" vs. "Hokage" but we think we've got things more-or-less correct.  (Source 1 and Source 2)

Yay!  After two and a half years, Naniki, we hope your dream is now fulfilled! ;D  Thanks, Naniki, and everyone who has helped along the way on this one!  Congratulations to all our AnimeIowa Forum members on their new ninja rank!
