Anime/ Manga Teams and Organizations Tourney Nominations

Post by Ggultra2764 on Sat 6 Feb 2010 - 1:37

Well, I've done enough on my regular hangout at AC. Let's see what I can do here for a tournament.

Anime has had it's nice number of organized teams and organizations that stick out well in the eyes of anime fans whether they are military/ government organizations, school clubs, sentai groups, detective agencies, crime syndicates, music bands, etc... I'm looking to have a tournament featuring 32 anime teams and organizations that folks here would like to see butt heads in this tourney. Here are rules for nominations (which for the most part should be quite similar to how Triela and Piero run things):

1. For me to make a nomination for the tourney official, you need to put up a description of the team/ organization you'd like to see featuring some details on the group and what title they are from. Said description must come with a picture of the team's members and/or their signature logo (whatever is easiest to get). The picture must be no bigger than 640x480 resolution.

2. A second vote for a nominated team is required for a team/ organization to be entered.

3. No more than two teams/ organizations are allowed in this tourney per anime title. I want to try having variety with the anime exposure with the tourney. In the event more than two teams get nominated, the first two teams from said title to be seconded will represent that title. If enough folks have a problem with this rule, I'll lift it.

4. Once 32 teams have been seconded, nominations will be complete and I'll start up the tourney.

Otherwise, go ahead and vote to your heart's content.

Final Tournament Roster:
1. NERV (Evangelion)
2. Ghost Stories Team (Ghost Stories)
3. MITHRIL (Full Metal Panic franchise)
4. Section 9 (Ghost in the Shell franchise)
5. Fairy Tail (Fairy Tail)
6. Lagoon Company (Black Lagoon)
7. Outlaw Star Crew (Outlaw Star)
8. Paranormal Disaster Countermeasure Headquarters (Ga-Rai-Zero)
9. SOS Brigade (Haruhi Suzumiya franchise)
10. Social Welfare Agency (Gunslinger Girl franchise)
11. Game Club (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)
12. Paper Sisters (R.O.D The TV)
13. Attack Mystification Police Force (Silent Mobius)
14. Knight Sabers (Bubblegum Crisis)
15. Knight Sabers (Bubblegum Crisis 2040)
16. Hellsing Organization (Hellsing)
17. Black Knights (Code Geass)
18. Beck (BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad)
19. Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture (Genshiken)
20. Kiba's Wolf Pack (Wolf's Rain)
21. Team Dai-Gurren (Gurren Lagann)
22. Strike Witches (Strike Witches)
23. Hotel Moscow (Black Lagoon)
24. Nirvana Crew (Vandread franchise)
25. Nadesico Crew (Martian Successor Nadesico)
26. Wagnaria Staff (Working!)
27. SMS (Macross Frontier)
28. Lovely Angels (Dirty Pair TV)
29. ACROSS (Excel Saga)
30. Bebop Crew (Cowboy Bebop)
31. The Dollars (Durarara)
32. Slayers Team (Slayers)

First up, Ghost in the Shell's Public Security Section 9:

Public Security Section 9 was established as a search and rescue organization. Officially billed as an international organization, it is actually a counter-terrorist network and anti-crime unit operating in the Japanese National Public Safety Commission. Its operatives are allowed to act with or without government consent as they are almost unknown to the public eye. In particular, Section 9 and its members are among the best cyber warfare operatives in the country, and as a result usually end up involved in case relating to the internet, such as hacking and cyberterrorism.

Even though they were totally wiped out at the end of the first episode, I still think that Ga-Rei Zero's Paranormal Disaster Countermeasure Headquarters under the Japanese Ministry of Defense looked cool for the 20 minutes they were around. Wink

There is precious little, since they were just a smokescreen by the producers to hide the fact that the show was a prequel to the Ga-Rei manga. So they spent no time on them or what they did and killed them all off in the first episode so they could get them out of the way and tell the prequel.

Essentially their job is to fight various evil paranormal forces plaguing Japan in conjunction with the Ministry of Environment's Supernatural Disaster Countermeasures Division, who perform the same function. They use military equipment modified to fight paranormal opponents instead of biological ones.

Piero is a fan of the show, as I recall, so he might be able to add something (or at least a second).

I still have fansubs for Ga-Rei Zero around (in fact, I have more than one version of the first episode) so I can look into the issue, but it won't be until later today.

I'd also like to if possible call dibs on nominating Full Metal Panic's Mithril. I've read fan translations of the later novels and done some internet research, so I'm aware of some things about the organisation that aren't made obvious in the anime adaptations. Is that all right?

i nominate NERV ,from Evangelion,

The UN Special Agency Nerv is an organization led by Gendo Ikari and tasked with defending Earth against the Angels through use of the Evangelion units.



It was formerly known as Gehirn, a UN Research Agency. It was reorganized into Nerv once Nerv HQ and Tokyo-3 became fully operational. There are several global branches of Nerv besides the main headquarters under Tokyo-3 itself.
The Nerv Logo is half a fig leaf covering its name, with the motto "God's In His Heaven... All's Right With The World" forming the quarter circle on the bottom.

I will if someone else puts up a picture and decription of them. If you do the work though, then someone else will have to second their addition to the tourney.

He said pre-nominating. I won't accept their nomination unless I get a written summary and picture of the group.

Three words:

Ghost Stories Team





When nearby construction disturbs a spiritual resting place, its disgruntled denizens terrorize the local school and a scruffy band of young ghostbusters come together to expel their new satanic schoolmates.

Led by the spunky Satsuki Miyanoshita, the band also includes the evangelical, Pentecostal Christian Momoko, lecher Hajime and Jewish Paranormal Researcher Leo. Oh, and Satsuki's unintelligible babbling cry-baby brother, Keiichirou. Despite their best efforts, they somehow manage to solve mystery after mystery with the help of a diary of Satsuki's lesbian mother when she was a student at the school and originally sealed away all the ghosts released by the construction group.

"We're Mithril. We wipe out terrorist organizations and destroy drug factories. We're like an army of justice to protect the world. Something like that."

-Sergeant Major Melissa Mao

Full Metal Panic's MITHRIL is a secretive international paramilitary organisation that was formed with the covert support of several nations after the detonation of a nuclear device in Iraq during the waning days of the Gulf War in 1992. They are heavily involved in counter-terrorism and preventing the proliferation of advanced weapons systems. The operate from a network of hidden installations around the world and specialise in precise, highly coordinated surgical strike missions in wide ranging geographic locals. To do this, they rely heavily on both cutting edge technology and highly trained personnel. In additional to purchasing weapons systems from friendly nations, MITHRIL also has it's own Research and Development branch which has made use of the so-called so called Black Technology provided by Whispered such as Teletha Testarossa. Products of this R&D work include the Electro Magnetic Fluidics Control (EMFC) system on the assault submarine TDD-1 Tuatha De Danaan and the Lambda Driver system used by the ARX-7 Arbalest.

They do business with various clients, but have a particularly friendly relationship with the Russian crime syndicate Hotel Moscow. The team takes on a variety of missions—which may involve violent firefights, hand-to-hand combat, and nautical battles—in various Southeast Asian locations.

For the Ga-Rei Zero nomination:

A Special Operations team consisting of people who have the ability to see the supernatural. They are one of the units created by the Japanese Ministry of Defense's Supernatural Disaster Prevention Headquarters to combat an increase in supernatural disturbances. They employ a variety of equipment, much of it spirtually enhanced, including ammunition with runes engraved in it and a tilt rotor aircraft capable of deploying large quantities of holy water. They were very effective in combating Category B spirtual disturbances (including one that had devastated another platoon) but were completely wiped out when they encountered Supernatural Disaster Category A Yomi Isoyama, a former Ministry of the Environment exorcist who had gone rogue and been corrupted by a demonic artifact. Here's the 1st Platoon of Ga-Rei Zero's STS Section Four.

(For the record, the 1st Platoon was doomed from the start due to the fact that the first episode of Ga-Rei Zero was essentially an elaborate viral marketing effort. Ga-Rei Zero was intended to be a prequel to the Ga-Rei manga that focused on characters from the manga, with the focus on the new characters of the 1st Platoon prior to their sudden demise being intended to trick the audience into thinking it would be about something else.)

A mercenary company travelling with the 25th Large Scale Colonization Fleet Macross Frontier. Prior to contact with the Vajra, they were employed primarily to do reconnaissance runs that were deemed too expensive to do with units from the regular military. When contact with the Vajra was made, they were sent to the front lines, where they became a key component in the fleet’s defence due to the poor readiness of the regular forces. The company was known to employee two fighter squadrons: Skull Squadron, a human squadron led by former military pilot Ozma Lee that was equipped with VF-25 Variable Fighters that the company had been given for field testing, and Pixie Squadron, an all-female Zentraedi squadron equipped with Queadluun-Rhea battle suits that was led by Captain Klan Klein. They also deployed a heavyweight shuttlecraft/bomber unit and a small carrier/warship referred to as the Macross Quarter. The company’s personnel split upon discovery of a conspiracy within the fleet’s government, with some of their number going rouge while others elected to stay with the fleet, however both groups ended up playing a decisive role in allowing the colonization fleet to survive. Here’s Macross Frontier’s SMS.



Also, they have an awesome song (though I have to wonder what the Pixies think of it, considering the massive amount of sexual innuendo it contains):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1Zbe-4U_x4&feature=related

I might replace the pic with something better after I have a chance to get ahold of the Macross Frontier fansubs which I think I may have left at home. Anyone got some ideas on improving that description? I'm not sue it does an overly good job for those who aren't already familiar with the series...

Seeing as there hasn't been much going on in here, I'll make my own nominations:

In 1983 in the town of Hinamizawa, this school club of kids normally play competitive games against one another where the loser(s) are subjected to humiliating "penalty games." However, the club finds itself entangled in the town's mysteries where in the show's various arcs, either one of the members wind up going murderously insane to kill the others or they are victims of a national conspiracy that is being plotted behind the backs of the town's powerful families. Here's Higurashi no Naku Koro ni's Game Club.


This school club was started up by the titular character's self-centered and impulsive actions to create a club to track down of the paranormal such as espers, aliens and time travelers where she drags in normal student Kyon and three other students. But unknown to Haruhi, the three students are actually paranormal agents who have been sent to monitor the girl due to her power to alter reality. Kyon finds himself having to aid these three students in preventing Haruhi from becoming bored enough to literally destroy the universe. Here's The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's SOS Brigade.



And being a Gunslinger Girl forum, I'm surprised this group hasn't been nominated yet:

On the surface, this organization exists to help provide rehabilitation to critically ill and injured children. In reality, it's a top-secret, counter-terrorist military organization that makes use of injured and sick girls as cyborg assassins. Each of these girls are paired as a "fratello" with a trainer known as a handler who is responsible for the training and well-being of their young protege. Relationships of the fratellos vary between being siblings to tools of the trade. Here's Gunslinger Girl's Social Welfare Agency.

This isn't something I can answer too well myself without giving into my personal hatred of K-ON. But on my end from what I seen of the show, they seemed to act more like a circle of friends than a team/ organization.

Well they are technically a club, but it is true that they spend their time goofing off, eating cake and drinking tea. Which is likely something an organization would not do. sweat

Might as well try to revive interest in setting up this tourney.

This trio of Paper Masters provide support for one another both as a surrogate family of siblings and when engaging in missions. Having different personalities and skills to draw upon with their paper magic, each of the girls help balance out the weaknesses and personality flaws of one another to keep them safe in battle or prevent them from getting too out of control in normal living situations. Consisting of well-endowed bibliomaniacs Maggie Mui and Michelle Chang plus 12-year old spitfire Anita King, here are R.O.D The TV's Paper Sisters.

Terminals main focus is information gathering using the photojournalist Miralia Hawe as one of their agents. With the assualt on ORB Terminal comes out of hiding with new top of the line equipment and helps to fight off ZAFT and defeat Gilbert Durandals ambitions.

I can't take the Dirty Pair since a group needs to consist of at least three members for this tourney and the Goddesses since they they're more of a romantic comedy harem from what I've heard of them. The rest I've added to the list above with a few that I need some more details for before I add them for nominations.

@crazyidiot: Your seconding has been accepted. But I'll no longer be taking Bubblegum Crisis teams since there are two of them in the tourney now.

@Kisk: If the 3WA is nominated as an entire organization, then I'll allow their place in the tourney.

I'll second Hellsing and the Black Knights.

What exactly is the focus here? Is it what group would win in a fight? Or which one is the coolest?

Tokkei First Brigade from DOLLS
Their job is to hunt down and execute criminals, and they are the best out of 47 brigades. While kind and caring people off duty, these three become ruthless killers when preforming their job. (Sorry for the short description - it's been ages since I've read this series. I'll expand it later.)

Alt pic.

Kira investigation team from Death Note
A specialized force created to find Kira. It is comprised of the top police investigators and L - the world's brightest detective. They risk their lives in the name of justice in order to take down the greatest criminal the world has ever known.

(Why isn't there a pic of this group on the net? :sigh: I'll compile one later or see if I can pull one from the anime.)

Still Need Picture or Description To Nominate:
2. Army of the Southern Cross (Macross)- need longer description
3. Gunsmith Cats (Gunsmith Cats)- Describe what the team does.

Army of the Southern Cross -- The army of the planet Glorie, the second and most recently terraformed planet, which is in an elliptical orbit around the Epsilon Eridani system. Jeanne Fránçaix is leader of the 15th Squad in the Southern Cross' Alpha Tactics Armored Corps which utilizes variable mecha. Her team often lead some of the most dangerous mission against the Zor, an alien race where they are all triplet that act like a single person, who are trying to return back to their own planet which the humans have colonized.



Gunsmith Cats -- Though ostensibly running a gunshop, the Gunsmith Cats are bounty hunters who not only take on bail jumpers, but bombers, assassins, psychos, the mafia, and corrupt polititions from the lesbian mafia dominatrix Goldy to psychopath Grey -- though the bounty hunting is considered a fun "hobby."

While not an organization per se, the HiME from Mai-HiME are a group of specially chosen girls that have to work together to stop the Orphans and the antagonists behind them from destroying the world. While they don't always get along very well, they do generally fight for the same cause. They all have a Child, which is their supernatural companion, as well as a unique magical power or weapon. The three main members are in the picture below, from left to right: Mikoto, Mai, and Natsuki.

@MadHatChemist: Forgot all about Mughi. He often assists Yuri and Kei on missions, so yes he counts. I'll allow the Lovely Angels for the tourney.

@Kodoku: It's a tourney where you judge which group/ organization shows the best chemistry, teamwork and organization with whatever they're doing in their series.

@Five_X: I'll accept them as HIME Rangers for the tourney since they were together briefly to deal with Alyssa's takeover of Fuuka Academy.

I'll toss in some more teams for folks to decide on:

A group of mercenaries formed and led by the charismatic Griffith, the Band of the Hawk from Berserk raked in victory after victory for the kingdom of Midland thanks to the strategies organized by Griffith and the skills and ferocity of their warriors such as second-in-command Caska, the heavy sword wielding Guts, knife-throwing Judeau and the warhammer-wielding large man Pippin.


This rock band formed by talented guitarist Ryusuke worked on polishing and improving their musical and singing skills as they struggled to land a big opportunity in the music industry while dealing with crooked record label executive, Leon Sykes. Here's the titular band of their series, Beck.


The troublesome trio of Jesse, James and Meowth have always born a thorn in the sides of Ash and his friends throughout Pokemon's 10+ year run as they try snatching Pokemon away from trainers to offer to their boss, Giovanni, in the organization's plans for world domination. Here's Team Rocket.


This school club consists of six of the school's most attractive boys and a cross-dressing girl in the guise of a male member. Taking on a number of shoujo manga archetypes for their services, the members of this club cater to their mostly female customers by organizing the music room that serves as their clubroom into elaborate themes each day they are open. Here's the titular club of their series, the Ouran High School Host Club.

I second Beck. Also, I think the Afternoon Tea Club from K-On! counts.

Uh, guys, I happen to like both sets of characters, but I kind of have to question the inclusion of the HiME and the three sisters from AMG. Midori's HiME-sentai are kind of a joke (although I guess they did work together on one important incident after their formation, and there is the aforementioned Searrs incident that led to their formation). Mostly, the HiME are a group of individuals, some of who work with each other, but rarely in anything more than small groups. As for Urd, Belldandy, and Skuld, those three aren't even really a formal team or organisation. They do work for the same overarching organisation, but mostly they're just three sisters who happen to be quite close.

Well, Piero, you have to also remember that I mainly nominated Mikoto, Mai and Natsuki out of all the HiME. Midori mainly gave them a name and alcohol.
