In continuation of an IRC conversation the other night. If you were assembling a traditional deck of cards, of anime characters (inc. touhou), who would be which card?
I'm trying to keep exotic/niche anime out of it, and the mecha genre. No Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Lucky Star, etc. Keep it classy.
Suggested series as follows:
Azumanga daioh, baccano, black lagoon, cowboy bebop, elfen lied, ergo proxy, full metal alchemist, gunslinger girl, soul eater, higurashi, ouran, fate/stay night, noir, kino no tabi, requiem for the phantom, last exile, rozen maiden (obviously), samurai champloo, TTGL, index/railgun, haruhi, bakemonogatari, spice & wolf, angel beats, princess tutu, darker than black, NGE, and shakugan no shana.
Ideally we'd not have any one series taking up too many cards, eg touhou is capable of filling the decks single handedly. If you suggest a character for one of the major cards (kings, queens, jacks, aces & jokers) if the reasoning is non-obvious then some justification would be helpful. Ultimately it might be possible to theme each suit to a genre or something, but depends how it looks at the end.
