Author has written 1 story for Manga.
Ahem, hello story writers young and old! I am Antonia Vargas. My real age is of no concern to you but my gender is female, like most fanfiction writers on this website. I am but a simple writer who spends most her daydreaming about odd things and consuming large amounts of sugar and caffeine. Forgive me for my completely screwed up updating habits for I have a short attention span and a large writers block on wheels that moves to differant parts of my brain whenever it pleases, that little rat. So for those of you who are reading my stories, thanksies! I appreciate it. For those who are considering reading my stories, the same. For those of you who are not interested, thanks for stopping by anyway, feel free to become addicted to TvTropes.org via the links down there with the laws of anime. For those who have read and dislike my stories, I am sorry that they are not to your tastes. I'm not the best writer around but I will try to do my best and improve my skills so I can one day be called a good writer. This is my introduction and I bid you adieu.
The Laws of Anime
#1 - Law of Metaphysical Irregularity
The normal laws of physics
#2 - Law of Differentiated Gravitation
Whenever someone or something, is thrown, or otherwise is rendered airborne, gravity is reduced by a factor of 4.
#3 -(First Law of Anime Acoustics)
In space, loud sounds, like explosions, are even louder because there is no air to get in the way.
#4 -(First Law of Anime Motion)
In space, constant thrust equals constant velocity.
#5 -(Second Law of Anime Motion)
The larger a mechanical device is, the faster it moves.are the fastest objects known to human science.
#6 - Law of Temporal Variability
Time is not a constant. Time stops for the hero whenever he does somethingTime slows down and speeds up whenever there is a fight.
#7 - First Law of Temporal Mortality
'Good Guys' and 'Bad Guys' both die in one of two ways - either so quick they don't even see it coming, orwhere the character
#8 - Second Law of Temporal Mortality
It takes some time for bad guys to die... regardless of physical damage. Even when the 'Bad Guys' are killed so quickly they didn't even see it coming, it takes them a while to realize they are dead. This is attributed to the belief that being evil damages the Reality Lobe of the brain.
Scenes involving extreme amounts of action are depicted with either still frames or black screens with a slash of bright color (usually red or white).
Scenes that only happen once, for instance, a 'Good Guy' kicks the 'Bad Guy' in the face, are seen at least 3 times from 3 different angles.
Everything explodes. Everything. First Corollary -Second Corollary - Large cities are the most explosive substances known to human science. in particular seems to be the most unstable of these cities, sometimes referred to as "The Matchstick City".
#12 - Law of Phlogistatic Emission
Nearly all things emit light from fatal wounds.
#13 - Law of Energetic Emission
There is always an(commonly referred to as an energy 'bulge') before Mecha or space craft weapons fire. Because of the explosive qualities of weapons, it is believed that this is related to the Law of Inherent Combustibility.
#14 - Law of Inverse Lethal Magnitude
The destructive potential of any object/organism is inversely proportional to its mass. First Corollary -will always overcome . Also known as the phenomenon.
No one ever runs out of ammunition. That is of course unless they are cornered, out-numbered, out-classed, and unconscious.
#16 - Law of Inverse Accuracy
The accuracy of a 'Good Guy' when operating any form of fire-armThe accuracy of the 'Bad Guys' when operating fire-arms decreases when the difficulty of the shot decreases. ( ) Example: A 'Good Guy' in a drunken stupor being held upside down from a moving vehicle will always hit, and several battalions of 'Bad Guys' firing on a 'Good Guy' standing alone in the middle of an open field will always miss. First Corollary - Second Corollary - Whenever a 'Good Guy' is faced with insurmountable odds, the 'Bad Guys' line up in neat rows, allowing the hero to take them all out with a single burst of automatic fire and then escape. Third Corollary - Whenever a 'Good Guy' is actually hit by enemy fire, it is in a 'Good Guy Area', usually a in the shoulder or arm, which restricts the 'Good Guy' from doing anything more strenuous than driving, firing weaponry, using melee weapons, operating heavy machinery, or doing complex martial arts maneuvers.
#17 - Law of Transient Romantic Unreliability
is a bimbo.
#18 - Law of Hemoglobin Capacity
The human body, sometimes more,
#19 - Law of Demonic Consistency
Demons and other supernatural creatures have at least three eyes, loads of fangs, tend to be yellow-green or brown, but black is not unknown, and can only be hurt by bladed weapons.
#20 - Law of Militaristic Unreliability
Huge galaxy-wide armadas, entire armies, and large war machines full of cruel, heartless, bloodthirsty warriors can be stopped and defeated with a single insignificant example of a/ emotion or a First Corollary (from Adam Barnes) - Whenever a single war machine (mecha, starship, etc.) goes up against an entire army, the army always loses.
#21 - Law of Tactical Unreliability
Tactical geniuses aren't...
#22 - Law of Inconsequential Undetectability
People never notice the little things... like missing body parts, or wounds the size of Seattle.
#23 - Law of Juvenile Intellectuality
#24 - Law of Americanthropomorphism
Americans in anime appear in one of two roles, either as a really nasty skinny 'Bad Guy' or a big stupid 'Good Guy'. First Corollary - The only people who are more stupid than the big dumb Americans are(Sometimes referred to as the Green Line Effect) Second Corollary - The only people who are more stupid than the American translators are
#25 - Law of Mandibular Proportionality(from A. Hicks, Tom Williams, and Ben Leinweber)
The size of a person's mouth is directly proportional to the volume at which they are speaking or eating.
#26 - Law of Feline Mutation (from A. Hicks)
Any half-cat/half-human mutation will invariably:Possess and sometimes a tail as a genetic mutation , if any
#27 - Law of Conservation of Firepower (from Tom Williams)
Any powerful weapon capable ofwill invariably
#28 -(from Tom Williams)
The formal training required to operate a spaceship or mecha is inversely proportional to its complexity.
#29 -(from Tom Williams)
Any being displaying extremely high levels of martial arts prowess and/or violent emotions emits light in the form of a glowing aura.This is attributed to Good being higher in the electromagnetic spectrum than Evil.
#30 - Law of Non-Anthropomorphic Antagonism (from Tom Williams)
All, alien races are , and usually hell-bent on destroying humanity for some obscure reason.
#31 -(from Spellweaver)
Any color in the visible spectrum is considered a natural hair color. This color can change without warning or explanation.
#32 - Law of Follicular Permanence
Hair in anime is pretty much indestructable, and can resist any amount of meteorological conditions, energy emissions, physical abuse, or explosive effects and still look perfect. The only way to hurt someone's hair is the same way you deal with demons... with bladed weapons!
#33 - Law of Topological Aerodynamics (First Law of Anime Aero-Dynamics)
Any shape, no matter how convoluted or odd-looking, is automatically aerodynamic.
#34 - Law of Probable Attire (from various sources)
Clothing in anime follows certain predictable guidelines. Female characters wearregardless of whether it is socially or meteorologically appropriate. Any female with an excessive amount of clothing If there is no opportunity to tear off the afore-mentioned female's clothes, then she will inexplicably take a shower for (also known as the Gratuitous ). Whenever there is a , male characters invariably wear that don't hamper movement and billow out dramatically behind them. - All anime characters are resistant to extremely cold temperatures, and do not need to wear heavy or warm clothing in snow. (from Nyctomania) - Bikinis render the wearer invulnerable to any form of damage.
#35 - Law of Musical Omnipotence
Any character capable of musical talent (singing, playing an instrument, etc.) is automatically capable of doing much more "simple" things, like piloting mecha, fighting crime, stopping an intergalactic war, and so on...especially if they have never attempted these things before.
#36 -(from Daniel Mikula)
Also called "The Five-man Rule", when "Good Guys" group together, it tends to be in groups of five. There are five basic positions, which are:A Dwarf/ Between these basic positions are distributed several attributes, which include:
#37 -(from Jason Bustard)
All anime females have an extradimensional storage space of variable volume somewhere on their person from which they can instantly retrieve any object at a moment's notice.- The most common item stored is a heavy mallet, which can be used with unerring accuracy on any male who deserves it. Other common items include costumes/uniforms, power suits/armor, and large bazookas.
#38 - Law of Hydrostatic Emission
Eyes tend to be rather large in anime.The actual volume of water contained in the eyes is unknown, as there is no evidence to suggest that these reservoirs are actually capable of running out. The reason water tends to collect in the eyes is because anime characters only have one large sweat gland, which is located at the back of the head. When extremely stressed, embarrassed, or worried, this sweat gland exudes
#39 - Law of Inverse Attraction
Success at finding suitable mates is inversely proportionate to how desperately you want to be successful. The more you want, the less you get, and vice versa.- Unfortunately, this law seems to apply to in the real world...
#40 -(from Ryan Pritchard and Jason Aylen)
When sexually aroused, males in anime don't get erections, they get. No one's sure why this is, though... the current theory suggests that larger eyes means smaller sinuses and thinner sinus tissue (see Law #38 above). Females don't get nosebleeds, but invariably get one heck of a along the cheeks and across the nose, suggesting a lot of blood flow to that region.
#41 - Law of Xylolaceration (from Lyndon Harris)
Wooden or bamboo swords are
#42 - Law of Juvenile Omnipotence (from Erin Alia)
to do a man's job.
There is no Law #43.
#44 -(from Luiko-Ysabeth and Adrian Hsiah)
The likelihood of success and damage done by a martial arts attack is directly proportional to the volume at which the full name of the attack is announced.
#45 -(from R. A. Hubby)
Regardless of how long or involved the transformation sequence or how many times they've seen it before, any 'Bad Guys' witnessing a mecha/hero/heroine transforming are too stunned to do anything to interrupt it.
#46 -(from Conrad Knauer)
Simply changing into a costume or wearing a teensy mask can make you utterly unrecognizable to even your closest friends and relatives.
At least one female must have large breasts.
#48 - Law of Scars
If a character has a scar, there will always be a long, usually angsty, emotional story behind it.
#49 - Law of Holy-Mother-How-Do-I-Pronounce-That?
All rules of anime must have unnecessarily complex names that are impossible to pronounce.
Some other frequent jokes on the "Rules of Anime" are:
Let your enemy finishhis long monologue before you attack. Don't interrupt a flashback. Don't question the transitional phase and/or plotholes.
Enjoy your, but do not try to take further peek in an comedy anime. Attempts will result into painful experiences ranging from to .
