Yes.
Anime is kind of like fish in that it is better the less "fishy" it is.

Part of me wonders how many are actually bought just for the HAK PIE.

A well-done biblical TCG would be awesome. One person plays God, the other Satan, and then it's pretty much apocalypse time.

I agree, Molo, the Bible mythology could make for some badass game foundation. But such a game as you propose would require:

[1] Someone who knows the Bible well,
[2] the same someone being okay with taking part in a project that will lead to the Bible being treated irreverently en masse, and
[3] someone who can make a good CCG

It's difficult enough to find 1 and 2 together, but the intersection with 3? Null set. Good games are hard to make.

I have confidence that I qualify for 1 and 2, but I may need some help for 3. Any takers?!

I actually think that 1 and 2 are borderline contradictory. If you know the Bible well, then you are likely aware of some of the abject silliness therein. It's hard to make an accurate biblical concept when the Bible itself changes its mind periodically throughout its text.

That sounds like a pretty good reason for someone who knows the material well to not take it too seriously, actually. Example: Shan was a big fan of Kingdom Hearts, but we still spent a good hour ripping the Hell out of it one time, and it was better because she understood exactly what parts of it are goofworthy.

... maybe that doesn't illustrate my point well... whatever.

I get it. It's a decent analogy, considering how protective some nerds can get of their favorite games.

While someone with trait 3 may be hard to find, it's probably not unlikely such a person possesses trait 2, and can then acquire trait 1 by attending an entry-level college class or two. Assuming the process of making the game is primarily a one-person affair.
