Thread: Homestuck Anime episode list

    Homestuck Anime episode list

    I did this thing. Kept thinking about how the entire series would fit into seasons and episodes, and before I knew it, I cranked out a brief summary of everything in Homestuck to date. I tried to find some things that would make good openings for an anime, but as you can see it was touch-and-go at best.

    My god I have way too much time on my hands.

    Homestuck:Beta (Season 1)
    John Egbert and his three internet friends begin to play a game called Sburb. Starting up the game, however, triggers the apocalypse. Their only hope is to enter the game itself and see it to its completion. The entire universe depends on them.


    Homestuck: The Midnight Crew (filler)


    Homestuck: Hivebent (Season 2)
    In another universe, before John and his friends start their game, a group of twelve Trolls similarly start a game of Sgrub, unwittingly setting a long chain of events into motion.


    Homestuck: The Scratch (Season 3)
    John and his friends discover that their session is doomed to failure, but there may be a way to salvage it. As the trolls and the humans cooperate, they must overcome the forces of a rogue NPC named Jack Noir to grasp survival.


    Homestuck: The Ancestors (Filler 2)


    Homestuck: Alpha (Season 4)
    In a new universe, on a new Earth, Jane Crocker and her three Internet friends prepare to play a game of Sburb. Will these new children have any more luck in trying to win the game? No. The answer is no.


    Homestuck: Gods and Tricksters (Season Five)
    The forces of three unstoppable villains stand between the humans and trolls, and their successful completion of the game. They race to stay alive, while searching for the only weapon that can help them win.

    They would look like phone calls, with people speaking what they type in canon, and scenery would be included so it isn't just "two people talking".

    Re: Homestuck Anime episode list

    I think in order for it to make a plausible anime, 90% of the pesterlogs would have to be cut out, saving all the most plot-dependent ones and a few others. But I basically see either voice-overs while the characters type at the computer, or do a montage sort of thing. By that I mean, have the characters start talking on the computer, but it then cuts to them going around doing other stuff while the voiceovers for the pesterlogs continue.

    And yeah this did take forever. I got caught in a sort of OCD loop and was just like, meh, why not.

    I vote for interpretive tap dance, where each character taps Morse code of their lines.

    But anyway, great work on this; it's all very well planned out. Though I will admit one of my favorite parts was the occasional in the numbering.

    This better happen instead of fake still frames with subtitles and claiming it was real.

    I always figured that a video adaption of Homestuck would involve the pesterlogs being based on videoconferencing via "PesterChum Video" or something.

    Considering how many characters have computer glasses in-comic, I always figured they were using some kind of voice-to-text software already... or maybe some kind of brain-link. You can't type with your eyes.

    People on my most popular Youtube vid still argue about whether Homestuck is an anime. The ones who say it is are trolling, of course.

    Obviously we all know that it's not an anime. It's most assuredly a mango.

    On the topic of the listings, that's a great effort. The only thing I'd see is that the lengths seem a bit random compared to standard lengths, though.

    Probably based on a mango. FMAB had a pretty random episode number because it was based on one.

    I was thinking of this a while back and figured that we'd see the characters at their computers typing and although they weren't actually talking you'd see them change their facial expressions and hear their voices as they type. For parts when the pesterlogs are disjointed from the the pictures of their typers, it would just be conversation voiceover. that way we could see stuff going on in the background while we watched the characters.

    The way that Durarara!!! did chat rooms would work well enough.

    I'm personally surprised that Homestuck hasn't been picked up by a major animation studio yet. It has such a large presence online and at conventions, you would think someone with connections would have noticed it by now.

    I really highly doubt that it's that simple. Also, I kinda feel like if Hussie was asked if he would be interested in an animated adaptation of Homestuck, he'd probably turn it down.

    Re: Homestuck Anime episode list

    I agree. This is awesome, and should still be done.
    I also think that, since the kids do so much, but can't actually sit and type while doing it, and at the same time, the pesterlogs contain so much of the plot, no pesterlog could be left out.
    Obviously early on, when the kids don't have the fancy head-tops, face-tops, ear-tops, and so on, you'd use voiceovers while they did things.
    Once you got to the point when they have fancy gadgets, they'd literally just be talking while the action went on.
    Also: Pesterchum having a calling feature would be just swell.

    This is ridiculously awesome.

    Pesterlogs could kinda be done like Durarara!!, later moving into just normal phone call-esque chats once the kids get their alchemized computers.

    I like it, but some of the episodes seem way too short. You could probably fit Act 1 in two episodes instead of three.
