    Every anime ever made would like to have a word with you.

    Now now.  That isn't TECHNICALLY correct (which is the best kind of correct).  Giant mecha often wield energy swords or other giant pieces of metal that in no way resemble a katana.  I'm pretty sure that, say, Gatts from Berserk also never used anything that could even remotely be construed as a katana (actually this is true in a lot of anime that instead emphasize BFS) and essentially breaks any smaller sword with that nonsense easily.  I'm not a big fan of some of the female-oriented genres but my take is that many of them lack swords at all.

    If I had said something about anime school girls or giant robots on the other hand...

    But I would totally use either of those things in Dark Souls.  Just think of the trolling!!!!

    It's good to see that everyone likes different things. I've loved reading all these. Normally on a thread like this I'd skim through to get a general idea of what people are saying, but this is extremely interesting.

    Thanks guys. Bow

    I was genuinely surprised that more than once I saw a list that had ZERO overlap with my own personal favorites.

    Though I may need to update my list, I've been having a blast with the Zwei lately, it's just so LIGHT compared to the DGM I feel like I can do stuff other than pound the 'increase End button'

    People really need to use the search more. Took me less than 5 minutes to find this
    http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t22935-your-favourite-weapon-for-each-weapon-type#481934

    Already discussed before.

    I understand the frustrations, but in fairness that other thread wasn't that popular and it's been over a month since anyone posted in that thread.

    In fact if you look at the dates, OP signed up to the forum 2 days after the last post in the other thread was made. It's a fair assumption he had no knowledge of the previous thread

    I don't have a problem with this, it's just duplicate threads when we have 5 discussion threads about honour and a guy posting the same question 3 times in discussion that we don't accept.

    Also this should be in general discussion, not PvP. Moving over now.
