It's actually much funnier animated. It's a gif but doesn't show animated in most parts of the forum UI:
It was made for me by one of the old mods forever ago. (The design is based on what I used to look like (I have since cut my hair short, and my beard is much larger) and the outfit is an anime character that I used to use as an avatar in the old days. Anyone who can actually name the character and anime gets one free question about MZ. I won't necessarily answer it, but you can ask it for free)

I always thought it was you drunk lol, hence the "bubbles" to the left. :hic:

So based on VX Ace's reveal history, MZ should be out somewhere around July 23rd. I hope I'm in the right ballpark there, because summer goes all the way to September 22nd. However, learning the program streams around August wouldn't make sense without the engine, and besides, everything is supposed to be open for discussion after next Thursday.

Maybe I'm way off in the late direction?

Now about that questions hehehehe...

What are you wearing? hehehehe

Nope. Here is a hint for anyone who wants to play: The anime came out in 1997. It's so obscure that while it got a box set in English, they didn't even bother to dub it it was so low budget, it just has subtitles.

It's a comedy anime and is legitimately both very good and very bad in retrospect.

I mean is it the full metal alchemist cape? The outfit is generally darker but being an illustration that's my best guess.

Edit: I've been googling hard and nothing else seems close LOL

Edit2: using the info he just posted.

Really close design but not the character. If no one can get it by tomorrow I'll just say what it is somewhere probably down in the anime discussion thread that is hanging around in off topic. It is one of those things that I only know because I used to be super into obscure anime.

My interwebz search skills are usually unbeatable and unmatched, but this one is sure putting that to the challenge.

Haunted Junction ?

I'm legitimately impressed anyone found it. The character is Red Mantle from Haunted Junction.

(It is very funny but also a lot of jokes just... man I'll just say that it would be problematic if it came out today, released in a very different culture in a very different time).

lmao I was focused too closely on the resemblance, looking for the gray outfit with a cape behind it.

Better be an epic question that we can be upset about when he doesn't answer @Tea's Jams xD

@Veno It is legitimately very hard for me to find a picture of him with his mantle actually pushed back/open from the anime. He is wearing a white outfit underneath.

In Japan, there is an opinion that MZ is 'Monozygotic'.
This is why MZ is so similar to MV.

If you are referring to 一卵性双生児 (if you are referring to MZ's thread on the japanese forum) I think it's better translated to "identical twins". But yeah, MZ's RTP does look a bit like MV's RTP, but more polished and with more contrast. I personally like the higher contrast.

Red Mantle? Haunted Junction? I actually know that, I didn't recognize it, but I see it now!

I watched it in our school's Anime Club...I only saw part of it, but that show was...different. Ridiculously inappropriate!

It makes me feel proud whenever an RM game does well. Even though I had nothing to do with it.
Make a Game in MZ, Episode 11 is now live! This week, I'm going to show my process of turning a draft map into a finished map. (Which most people don't do, but I'm weird). Join in the chat and ask me anything:

Someone: "I'm not mad, what about the way I replied to you makes you think I'm mad?"
First reply to me: [Insert personal attack]
Me: "Oh... I don't know..."
Gonna announce the OCC3 winners tomorrow. Though really you can just go look at the polls and tell :)
Ooh, profile banners! I like.
