I have a rather interesting request. I was wondering if you guys could download these pictures and list any series (they don't have to be just manga) that your reminded of while looking at them:
Do NOT list the series that the picture is from, just list the series that current scene in the picture is reminding you of. When listing, tell what picture it is that reminded you of that series (no reasons required).

I'll specify more if need be.

This is neat!

Dark Eagle: Berserk. I was thinking of the band of the hawks.
Ancient Portal Painting: .hack//GU game series. The portals to go through when you're entering keywords.
Behind the Tree: Shadow Hearts 2, Alice's graveyard
City Outskirts: Drifting classroom. It's the angle of the picture. I was reminded of movement and ominous foreboding.
Creepy Skull: Nausicca and The Hills Have Eyes.
Dark Street Painting: It makes no sense but I immediately thought of Spirited Away, when Sen was waiting in the shallow waters for the train to come. Huh.
Darkness and Light: Shingeki no Kyojin. The scene when they're trying to ambush the female giant in the forest.
Descending Into Deep Cave: Skyhigh: Shinshou. I think it was one of the stories where a family was trying to commit suicide, and 2 bodies were found in a cave.
Dreamlike landscape: Ghost hunt. One of the cases near the end of the manga takes place with an... inn? hanging around the edge of a cliff looking over the ocean.
Ether Saga Online: Ookami to Koushinryou
Fantastic Ruins: Lord of the Rings >_>
Fantasy Dragon: How to train your dragon
Gas Mask Art: Coppelion. Contaminated air.
Girl On Tree Tops: Cardcaptor Sakura 2nd movie ending. Everything was looking bleak towards the end, but tadaaa, all is good again.
Hello Little One: Midori no Hibi
Library: Fairy tail. Mangaka sure does have a knack for drawing enchanted looking forest/places sometimes.
Multnomah Falls: The Amazing Race >_>. I'm reminded of the exotic locations.
New York Fog: The Land Before Time movie. The fog kinda gives the impression of a wide divide between the,... "lands" and it echoes that scene where the kids are separated from their parents.
Old Railroad: Jisatsu Circle. Kids jumping in front of trains. Woohoo.
Raining Day Anime: Shinya Shokudou. People gathering together in a warm place and enjoy one another's company.
Shape Wave: BM: Nectar. I'm reminded of the massive wave of biomeat.
Sunshine After The Rain: Silent Hill, heh. Road to the unknown.
The Cube: Final boss of Okami. No, seriously. An ambiguous entity.
The Giddyup Tree and the Bickham Script Tree: Mushishi. One case where the texts (mushi) comes to life.
Train Passing By: I Am Legend movie/book. Streets deserted, wildlife, plants..
Your Life Is Loading: Reset. The texts "You have failed at life. please reset" (I'm paraphrasing) appears to the characters.

Ok... this took a lottt of time. You better appreciate this, Transdude1996.

Yay. I'm glad. ...And since I didn't finish the whole list last time, here's the rest.

3D Green Line: Momonchi, Mars, Genkaku Picasso. It reminded me of a brush stroke, and I connected that with manga w/ painting/art.
3D Spy Lens: Kamisama no Iutoori. High tech security -> omnipotence -> confusion -> thus this manga.
Anime elf: Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou. The image gave off this calm slice-of-life feeling, and YKK immediately popped up.
Blue Blocks Cavern: Hideout, Doubt, Angel Sanctuary. Reminded me of some place isolated and hidden.
BSOD or Blue Screen Of Death: Bloody Monday
Colored Corners: Gaku, Kokou no Hito. Abstract mountains.
Colorful Maze Segment: Cardcaptor Sakura Maze card >_>. Lame, I know. Ghost Hunt again. One of the cases involved a mansion full of traps, dead ends I think, hidden passageways.
Colorful Slightly Blurry Lines: Skyhigh. Thought stairways to heaven.
Deep In The Forest: Ragnarok Online (the mmorpg). The title and image immediately popped up a RO background music in my head. Prolly a prontera, geffen, or payon-related field bgm. eyes
Dubai Futuristic Cityscape: Aria. It was probably the sea that inspired me to think of Aria.
Gray 3D City: Minecraft LOL.
Green Cubic Forms: GUNNM, Owari to Hajimari no Miles, Castle in the Sky. The dissipating? cube reminded me of a floating island, and I remember there being one in GUNNM and the others.
Klontalersee Glarus: Kaikisen, School Ningyo, Ningyo no Mori, Mushishi. Vast ocean -> mermaids. Don't know how I thought of that instead of sharks laugh.
Lake Superior Provincial Park: Let's Lagoon, 7 seeds, Jisatsutou, 6000, Sprite, Aphorism, Soukai no Eve. Stranded island or basically just anywhere/anyone trapped. There's a lot more to be named... but I just can't be bothered to remember.
Letter In The Bottle: 20th Century Boys, Fugurumakan Raihouki, Omoide Emanon**. Time capsule. Memories. Sentimental value.
Lovecraft's City Of R'yleh: From Up on Poppy Hill, studio ghibli movie. Reminded me of their... what was it, clubhouse? Eh.
Milky Blue Water: Suiiki, Gyakusou Shoujo - Owaranai Natsuyasumi, L∞P, Tabi to Michizure. Town submerged in water. Which lead to eternity / frozen in time.
Montane Rainforest: La Mosca. Something I recently read. To describe this manga: cocoa forest of hell.
Mystic Sun: Basara. Vast desert, big story.
Strange Trees: Miyori no Mori, Princess Mononoke. Strange forest/trees/world indeed.
Sunset Palm Tree: Baby Steps. Recent chapter, beach scene, confession, memorable.
Sydney Lighthouse: Ponyo, Blue Heaven. Lighthouses are there to guide ships, but since I couldn't really think of any manga about that, I just related ones to just ships.
Winter hills: Mushishi again. Ginko's past was "shrouded" in mystery.. which lead me to think of mysterious places in general. See Milky Blue Water for the examples.

Amnesia: To The Moon PC game. I remember there being a lighthouse that was significant to the story. How ironic that the title was called amnesia since it was kind of about going through memories of a man who can't remember what his.. reasoning for what his wish was.
The Void: Angel Sanctuary again. The image reminded me of hell, and the characters do journey to hell first I believe.
Silent Hill: X-Day, Bokurano, G Senjou Heaven's Door. Hn, I saw depression and forlorn. ...I can't remember any other manga. :/
Singularity: Fullmetal Alchemist, Region. I interpreted that light from above as a catatrosphe waiting to happen on a large scale. Rakia kinda gives that feeling too.
star trek voyager: Uchuu Kyoudai

I need coffee. none
