Dear modders out there!

Have you ever thought how amazing it would be to make Saber Rider models for JA? Im sure you know what Im talking about! Fireball, Colt, Saber Rider, and April (for those who want)!! Or even a miniature RamRod!

I myself am a diehard Saber Rider fan, and I'd love to bring the anime back to life. What place would be better than JA? Imagine Colt with a Tenloss Disruptor, Saber Rider with his original Saber, and Fireball in an A wing!! OMG..

I hope that any of you guys will pick up on my thread and make my dream come true, to play as Saberrider on JA!!!

I can tell you really like Saber Rider, but believe it or not, there are some who have never heard of it before (like myself) *gasp!*. Some reference pictures would be great!

Oh of course, sorry

find attached some pictures. It's a really old show, possibly before your time, so i dont blame you for not knowing. But geez, the SaberRider cult will never die out! Especially in Germany, it was suuuper popular in the 80s. Everyone knows the amazing themesong haha.

Id still be glad if you could find someone willing to make these models.

Kind regards,

Check this out!! YouTube - Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs intro

A large part of my soul dies every time someone refers to these cartoons as "anime". :cort:


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

sorry to bother you,

but Im not sure you are aware that SaberRider is in fact a japanese anime that was exported abroad. Its original name is 星銃士ビスマルク (Seijushi Bismarck) and I must say that this indeed calls for naming it an anime.

Just because something was animated in Japan, does not make it an anime. Need I use Pocket Monsters and Digital Monsters as the examples to support my case? :gizmo:

Sure, the casual channel-hopper may view it as semantics, but in reality the difference really is immense. "True" anime is virtually an art form, not something to amuse the kids while you're making pancakes, and as an anime enthusiast of sorts, the misconception makes Kouen sad. :(

"http://www.japanvisitor.com/index.php?cID=359&pID=325" Anime - a shortened form of the English word 'animation' referring to Japanese cartoons. Manga - Japanese comic books (...)

Sounds good to me, but yeah, some people refer anime to that "special" kind of japanese animation. What-ever. Really. :lookaround:

Actually, the definition of "anime" which means "animated in Japan" is modern slang, as is the widespread usage of "manga".

Anime by definition is more of an adult-oriented type of animated entertainment, which covers severe moral and ethical real-world issues, either under the guise of fantasy or sci-fi. It's a lot deeper than "beat up bad guys, keep the kids busy before school".

Manga pretty much works off the same definition, for printed materials.

The only thing is, these days, thanks to "slang culture" and the unwillingness of people to learn as opposed to taking the easy way out, people group any Japanese cartoon or comic book under the anime and manga headings.

It wouldn't be so bad, if it wasn't one of many blatant signs of how lazy, complacent and ignorant we humans as a species are becoming, by showing how we prefer to squander wisdom and knowledge for the sake of mere simplicity. :clueless:

But eh, let's just drop it.
