Considering the fact that there are a lot of people reading this ATM, I'm going to do some shameless (unofficial) advertising of my own! (Sorry JNathan) Here we go!
*Put on buisness man suit and turn on your business man voice!*

We here at Naruto: A New World, are looking for two Akatsuki members. There is no requirment, other than the willpower to destroy the good guys and their children! But naw. You don't need anything. We just need a couple roleplayers. I trust you guys.

I'm shelving Wolf's Rain for the time being (I may bring it back in the future, depending on how the players turn up), but for a while now, I've had an excellent idea. The series may be obscure, but I find it to be an undiscovered relic. I love this series, and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves action/comedy anime. The name of this RP idea?

Arms Alchemy Academy: BUSOU RENKIN!

A Busou Renkin RP? I'm only interested as long as Makka na Chikai is present on the opening page.

It most certainly will be, along with a video of some Busou Renkin action, to show people who are unfamiliar what to think of when creating their own Kakugane abilities and types, if I can find a proper video.

If that's too much trouble, you can always get pages from the manga. Those should be easy to find.

Gauging interest for a Yu-Gi-Oh! roleplay.

Expert knowledge of the card game not required, but passing knowledge (do you know how to play the card game?) is necessary. [I understand that this narrows the user pool considerably, which is why I'm gauging interest.] Not looking for a significant number of players.

Homebrew cards will definitely be allowed (pending some analysis / approval). Probably utilizing some period of time after GX canon as the setting for the plot. New mechanics allowed, but there is a list of restricted cards that cannot be used (due to implications of the universe).

This is another attempt at creating and sticking with an RP; this time, the franchise is familiar, so people won't have to read through tens of thousands of informational writing just to understand the setting. (Really, nobody wants to do that anyway.)
So, uh, children's card games, anyone? I'd start planning on this, but I'd like some indication at least of whether there will actually be players. (It's viable as long as there are a handful of interested people... I don't believe I have a true minimum for the plot in mind.)

Cirrus sounds interesting, but how would it work? It would take quite a while to write out a yugioh battle, and would involve a load of VMs/PMs/chatlogs to avoid bunnying.

Most of the time the players play against NPCs, and generally they'll be allowed to take full control of the NPCs (because seriously, nobody loses against random NPCs); player-versus-player duels are much rarer, and when they do come up they'll be arranged via VM / PM / instant messaging (!!! best medium detected) beforehand so that one or both players will write a unified account of the entire game after first deciding the result of the duel.

(Duels against serious NPCs will be, of course, dramatized appropriately between the GM and the player. However, the player typically always wins anyway unless they have to lose due to PLOT TWIST / CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, so y'know)

Plus, half of the time you don't even play children's card games! A lot of the character development and interaction happens independent of the fact that children's card games exist.

(I miss CARD GAMES, which is why I'm thinking of making a card games RP. You can find a very good example of how exactly YGO RPs would work out in its thread: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=97398&page=3 provides a lot of brief NPC duels.)

ADDENDUM: another good example on the later pages of the thread, this time of a player-vs-player game.

@Cirrus Pfft! I play SHADOW children's card games! I will probably join and make so many references to Yugioh Abridged that you will all hate me and I will love it. Littlekuriboh is a comedy genius.

That does sound much easier.

There will be a requirement of creativity in joining, though. Each player's character must have a unique Kakugane with its own strengths and weaknesses. For the most part, we'll be avoiding anything canon, but still, I don't want anyone to imitate Sunlight Heart or Mirror Skin, or any of the known Kakugane.

However, this leads me to wonder, should this RP have a larger group of players, or smaller?

Thanks to those who welcomed me back! I'm really excited to be roleplaying again. To be quite honest, I really miss doing so~ I'm going to jump in at PTA (probably my forever roleplay xD) and Imma browse and see what other roleplays are out there! Things have indeed changed, and I'm happy to see Swifty taking care of things around here! So proud of you :')

If everybody would stop making excellent roleplays so I wouldn't have to join them all, that'd be great.

Working on the Arms Alchemy Academy RP post, what do you guys think?

Oh, and since it's kind of an obscurity, clicking the "Busou Renkin" Japanese Title will link you to a website where you can watch it in either subs or dubs.

@WolfOfEve. Well, that's a pretty looking teaser :3 Although the video shows up wider than the CSS it is at for me :/ But yeah, looks intriguing and all :3

@TheCartographer. Ermahgerd, your signature, my cookies. Perfect. I love you already :D Most people like to being the Pokémon Trainer Academy, or a journey Roleplay like RéBURST RéBOOT. Or one of the many original Roleplays, like Midnight, Reapers, and many, many more! :D

@Hereto Well great now that you said that I have to go make one! Oh wait...that wouldn't be great lol nvm no worries.

@Cartographer I share the same sentiments as Sr. Alejandro Beats for sure.

Man...when are they gonna make new episodes of Legend of Korra? It's not fair it was sooooo goood. Just like the original Avatar. Me and my best buddy for a long time watched the whole of Last Airbender on xbox live netflix back when you could watch stuff together, every episode in the course of a few days, awesome.
