Thought this would be a prime spot for getting good ideas for my research paper in english class.

Well I have a research paper to do in english, anyone have any good ideas? Anime related or just in general, I am stumped.

I know Ryos should have some ideas since Ryos has done so many anime related papers for class in the past, and I am leaning towards something like that but not sure. Any ideas ppl might have for me are very welcome, k thx.

What are your interests? Things you are concerned about?
I once did a research paper on the danger of asteroids, or as I called them, "killer rocks from space." :eyes:

If an asteriod DID crash, It'd kill a whole lotta people (read: millions), depending on where it crashed. If in the sea, It'd kill the coastal people, like L.A. or S.F.; now if it crashed in Arizona, near Asz's place then it'd be quite alright. :p :D :D :D

propblem is I am really a Computer Science major, and I have done my Analsys paper on computers and he doesn't want out research paper to be to "technical" persay. As for my current interests, not many, Im here showing I am at least semi-interested in emulation, but doesn't seem like a strong subject to write a paper on. And some ppl here have mentioned writing papers on anime, but that also seems to narrow of a topic, I just need topics, thats all.

unfortuneately there hasn't been many papers or articles written on that subject

making it tough to research for a research paper

That's why we have BOOKS. Go to a reasonable sized library, and look up your interests there, be they asyeroids, wildebeest, or Orin Hatch.

You could do a paper on the evolving tastes of video games. That takes research. :p How long is the paper supposed to be?

You could do a comparison of Grave of the Fireflies to real conditions in WW II Japan, particularly with regards to the bombings of Tokyo.

wow thats the best idea yet, but still I am going to feel like an idiot but Grave of the Fireflies?
Don't know what that is, but the general concept of the effect on Japan of WWII would be cool, would just have to narrow it down a bit.

Grave of the Fireflies is a documentary that includes the strangely overlooked bombings at Tokyo. While the world claims to never forget the tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I hate to point out Tokyo suffered as badly (if not worse).

Hiroshima:
about 138,890 according to Gilbert.

Nagasaki:
about 48,857 according to Gilbert.

Tokyo bombings:
"On May 24, more than four hundred American bombers dropped 3,646 tons of bombs on central Tokyo, and on the industrial areas in the south of the city. More than a thousand Japanese were killed."
Tokyo, March 1945: "83,793 Japanese civilians killed. That was the official minimum death toll; later, 130,000 deaths were 'confirmed' by the Japanese authorities."

The incendiary bombs used at Tokyo were almost as lethal as nuclear weapons.

true, because:

1. Houses were mostly made of paper back then.

2. The alleys were too narrow for escape from the flames. also, a lot of people tried to escape the heat by jumping into the rivers, thus drowning. :(

wow, Ryos thanks that sounds like a great topic to write about, plus I think I want to do research on that now anyways. On a very much so side note, where did you get your name?

I wrote a short story with a hero I named "Ryos." It won third place at a state contest (I got started on the story five days before it was due because I acidentally found out there was a contest from a teacher). I've used Ryos ever since I created the name. Don't know why.
