Based on the league status visualization maps produced by melange and spurred by the imagination of Ithekro, 'Space Opera' is a fun and interesting depiction of the voting results of ISML by describing them in the style of a 'science fiction epic'. Individual anime series become 'nations' and 'kingdoms' and groups of series produced by the same studio become larger 'empires' or 'alliances' which clash and do battle across the galaxy. You could think of it as a kind of 'fanfiction'. Its main purpose is for fun and entertainment.
How can I contribute?
We welcome everyone to become involved! Although the general framework of the factions have been established, the backstory and internal politics of many factions are still not fleshed out. Any and all suggestions as to the development of the factions and the main story are welcome. Please post in the respective threads of the faction or issue you are discussing or if there is no existing thread for it, please make one.
Melange is currently creating signatures for each of the factions for general public use which desperately requires suggestions for short descriptions of the factions.
How are the posts in this forum organized?
- [Story] posts are where the 'battle reports' after each round of ISML matches are posted. Please read and comment on the ongoing story.
- [Faction] posts give background information of the individual factions and are where discussions about the factions should take place. Please see the 'Factions of the Second Great Moe War' post for a general description of the factions and the animes they were based on and links to the individual faction threads.
