Hiii.

I never thought i´d have an "ask me" thread. I´m not that interesting, nor popular (but Bax had nothing better to do, so he spent his time trying to convince me to make one. So here it is. :p )

In case you don´t know (and you probably don´t), I´m Agrias, mod of the Naruto Theater & Arcade section (i´ve been promoted now! #D). I was promoted to mod status when Bax and GK discovered that I had nothing better to do than to post urls to the latest Naruto episodes around - even when they´re crappy, oh yeah. #D

I´m out of ideas of what to say here, as I´m not really good on introductions. So..bah, just ask me anything if you wish. ;p

EDIT: Hilarious pic, by the way :XD

Naruto? I hate him. I just love Sasuke. And Uchihas in general. #D


Ok, I don´t really know why I like Naruto. It´s a very chiche shounen series, but it managed to make me watch anime/read manga again, after a break of 5 years. So I guess it turned out to be special to me...and of course, i love those cheesy love and friendship stories. #D

What did you watch before Naruto, and why did you take a 5-year break?

And what about Sasuke x Sakura appeals to you ( I'm sure this is the question you want to be asked :amuse )

<hr noshade size="1">

By the end of the next year, i´ll be the newest architect around. ^__^
The constant visits to the construction sites are obligatory one year before graduation...and let´s say that it sucks to be a girl in a construction site, hehe...the workers are such pervs >(



What did you watch before Naruto, and why did you take a 5-year break?
5 years ago, I moved from Rio de Janeiro to Fortaleza, and I lost contact with almost all of my friends...5 years ago, it wasn´t easy to download entire series in a couple of hours here in Brazil, so we used to trade cds with episodes and buy some series together. When I got here, I had no friends - and no one to trade episodes with, or just chat :/ So I lost the will to watch new series...the studies, college entrance exams and moving took almost all my time :p

But then high speed internet was born. :hearts

Ah, in that time I used to love Saint Seiya (this one was such a hit here in Brazil - even today, it´s more known and loved than Dragonball!), Sailormoon, Fushigi Yuugi, Ayashi no Ceres, Ah my Goddess, Macross (the first one, one of my favourite series until today), Slayers, DNA², Miyazaki´s works, Lodoss, Evangelion and muuuch more ;p


And what about Sasuke x Sakura appeals to you ( I'm sure this is the question you want to be asked :amuse )
They are the perfect pairing. She´s caring, and he needs care - Sasuke only needs to acknowledge that. I think he already did, he´s just waiting to finish his things with Itachi before producing pink haired Uchihas. #D

(but it looks like Kishimoto is going to deceive me ¬¬)


Do you like FFs?

Love them. FFTactics and FF6 are my favourites. As you can see, I´m a FFT freak. The title of this thread is derived from a famous quote by Delita, in the beggining of the game #D

Bad thing is that I still didn´t had time to play FFX and FFXII...college is killing me.



Ah, please correct me everytime you see an english mistake. I won´t be angry, I promise. My english is really rusty -_-

Oh, I bet that sucks.

Are any of them, uh, fit to you? You know, any "lookers?" Can't just leave this one-sided, they probably just think you're hot.

Of course, that warrants respect; I wouldn't drive away the attraction if I really care about it. Even then, if a girl I'm into "gets me," hey, perviness is hardly thrown out the window :XD

What are your thoughts on any of the constructors? I may be asking much for a well-mannered looker or maybe not. I don't know who's there. Save for the pervs :amuse

OOh, ooh! What's your favorite Miyazaki work :wtf

Do you like Ghost in the Shell? Why? Why not?

What's better music wise: Samurai Champloo or Cowboy Bebop? If you haven't heard of them, I'm afraid I have no links. I get a lot of my anime exposure through Adult Swim or something from William Street Studios (a Cartoon Network animation department (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Williams_Street)).

The workers are old, sweaty, ugly, smelly and most of them are bad mannered as well. #D So, to their standarts, any person with boobs is hot. ^^;
Some rare respectful ones are really kind and are always helping me out, I´m glad they exist ;p
The engineering students and the engineers themselves are younger and not so bad, but they´re pervy too. I know when they´re looking ¬¬

And no, i´d never be attracted by any of those, never ^^;;;


OOh, ooh! What's your favorite Miyazaki work :wtf
I´m torn between Laputa, Nausicaa and Grave of the Fireflies (so sad ;~~). I liked Chihiro too.
Ops! Grave of the Fireflies wasn´t by Miyazaki, was it? I think it´s just a Ghibli production. ;p


Do you like Ghost in the Shell? Why? Why not?
This one is a classic...I still haven´t watched Innocence and Stand Alone Complex, though. ;/ I´m not really into sci-fi, but I liked this one a lot when I watched.

What's better music wise: Samurai Champloo or Cowboy Bebop? If you haven't heard of them, I'm afraid I have no links. I get a lot of my anime exposure through Adult Swim or something from William Street Studios (a Cartoon Network animation department (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Williams_Street)).
I love Cowboy Bebop in every aspect, music included. Can´t say the same for Samurai Champloo, as I´ve never watched it #D

Don't you have a boyfriend anyway? So the workers better keep their mitts off, right? :D

Do watch Samurai Champloo, it's awesome, maybe not as awesome as Cowboy Bebop but you still should watch it anyway.

And are you interested in working for architectural firm, or to start your own business?

I think I watched an episode on tv once...it really didn´t get my attention, is it that good?;p

Anything is good....for begginers, it´s hard to start a business, but some say it´s the only way to make money nowadays...

I feel kinda of lost right now....it feels like i´ve been studying for almost 6 years, and I still haven´t learned anything *_* I´m so afraaaid ;_;

YES!! Samurai Champloo is that good. In fact, on my second time watching, I decided it was better than Cowboy Bebop (although the music isn't as good). Not every episode is fantastic, so maybe you caught one of those... but some just blew me away. You should definitely check it out! :D

Don't worry, almost everyone feels that way when they graduate. I know I did, anyway. But sometimes I think the point of college isn't to teach you things, but to teach you how to learn things on your own. So don't worry. Once you start your job, I'm sure you'll do great! :D

I started with the anime, but now i´m most interested on the manga, of course. Can´t wait for the team 7 reunion #D
I´m torn between the manga and the anime, i love both. Except the fillers and slow paced episodes of the anime, and the manga fights that take more than 5 weeks to end.

By the way, I can´t stand the Jiraiya fight anymore. ¬¬


What are your 3 favorite anime?
It´s so difficult to choose only 3...but right now, I guess they would be Macross, Naruto and Rurouni Kenshin. Ops, I guess I don´t like Kenshin as a anime series, only the manga...last favourite anime...agh, I´ll go with Slayers. Kimagure Orange Road. Haruhi Suzumiya. Lucky Star. So maaaany ;_;

Yeah, sure ^^ My favourite books are The Silmarillion, A Clockwork Orange and A Brave New World. But its been a long time since i last read something pleasant, now i just read boring architecture books. :(
Ah, there´s a really good book that is not about architecture, but every architecture student reads and loves - and that´s my case: Invisible Cities, by Italo Calvino. That would be my current fav.


and the most important question of life...what's your favorite food? :nuts
:wtf
I love to eat #D~~~~~~

SUSHI!!!!! *_* Yakisoba...BigMac and Cheddar McMelt (this one is a mc donalds sandwich, i´m not sure if they sell it outside Brazi, as they say this one is a brazillian one ;p)
I was recently introduced to Burger King, so I must say Whoppers are starting to make me happy. Ah, Junk Food :scry

Yeah, it seems like a lot of people are bored with it already. The constant summonings were a bit boring, but there's potential to make it exciting again with Pain's new human summons. But I think I care more about getting Pain's backstory than the actual battle right now. :p

And I can't wait until we finally get back to Sasuke and Itachi!! (and maybe Naruto?) :nuts



When I finish Bleach, that will be my next one. I just started watching/reading Bleach, can you believe it?;p


Hehe. Don't worry, you're not the only one. :amuse
I've been caught up on the manga for a while now, but I still have only watched like 5 episodes of the anime. :p

Heya Agrias, nice to see you settling in nod Can't say I'm a big lurker in the Naruto section but you shall see me sometimes in this thread because...


Ah, in that time I used to love Saint Seiya (this one was such a hit here in Brazil - even today, it´s more known and loved than Dragonball!), Sailormoon, Fushigi Yuugi, Ayashi no Ceres, Ah my Goddess, Macross (the first one, one of my favourite series until today), Slayers, DNA², Miyazaki´s works, Lodoss, Evangelion and muuuch more ;p

Slayers. Kimagure Orange Road. Haruhi Suzumiya. Lucky Star

That list's just too awesome :nuts I'll make you join my brigade >.> So a couple of questions... Sorry if there are too many^^;;

- Saint Seiya : Favorite Saint? (hope you won't pick Aldebaran only because he's Brazilian :nuts)
- Macross : Favorite characters? Ever took a look at Macross Plus? Do you think that the upcoming series, Macross F, will be better than the last TV series Macross 7? (which shouldn't be hard, but well >.>)
- Slayers : Favorite characters? If you've watched the OVAs, which is your favorite one?
- Lodoss : Favorite characters? Which one would you choose, between cosplaying as Deedlit or as Pirotess? :XD

I'll keep other questions for later, that's already a lot :sweat


This one is a classic...I still haven´t watched Innocence and Stand Alone Complex, though. ;/ I´m not really into sci-fi, but I liked this one a lot when I watched.
Fujikomas :hearts

Seeing your list of favorite animes, I have little doubts you wouldn't like either :amuse I strongly advise you the Stand Alone Complex series, if only because Tachikomas>Fuchikomas :amuse

Agrias

ok here is a question, do you like to do any artistic stuff as a hobby and not as a job, i mean, like sculture or painting in your free time?

Eba, você por aqui! #D

I was an arts student for 2 years, by the same time I started architecture. I ended by quitting the arts course, as both courses required much dedication and time. Architecture was my real goal, so i had to leave the arts course behind...maybe when I graduate I´ll continue it, to get a 2nd graduation ^^;

I like drawing a lot, it´s one of my favourite hobbys. I´m always drawing at boring classes, and people know me at the university as "that girl that´s always doodling those big eyes people" #D I collect all of those doodles at my deviantart gallery (http://agrias.deviantart.com) :)

I´m not very talented though. I´m not good on painting, nor colouring...
(I used to make some interesting sculptures at class, but sculpting at home turns out to be kinda messy ;p )




And I can't wait until we finally get back to Sasuke and Itachi!! (and maybe Naruto?) :nuts

So I do. In fact, I really want to see the Uchiha reunion! I want Sasuke to get spanked real bad by Itachi or Madara. (So Sakura can come and heal every inch of his body, and produce cute nice little pink haired uchihas 10 minutes later. ;p)

Ah, and I hope Itachi is the real good boy of Akatsuki instead of Tobi. ;_;


:glomp :XD
ah! Do you read One Piece? :nuts
That´s one more to my to-do list ;_;



- Saint Seiya : Favorite Saint? (hope you won't pick Aldebaran only because he's Brazilian :nuts)
I hate Aldebaran, that ugly loser! #D My favourites are Hyoga, Shiryu, Kamus, Mino and Mu #D

I remember I was 10 when Saint Seiya 1st aired, and it became an instant hit. All the guys at school were fighting to see who would have the better saint, according to our zodiac sign. "Hah, I´m scorpio, did you see how much he owns?" "Hah, Aquarius is better!"
And I only joined the discussions to say "Just wait! You´ll see that my Piscis will be the most powerful one!"
What a disappointment. Everyone made fun of me. "SAINT FAAAG, YOU PISCIS!" :P


- Macross : Favorite characters? Ever took a look at Macross Plus? Do you think that the upcoming series, Macross F, will be better than the last TV series Macross 7? (which shouldn't be hard, but well >.>)
Misa Hayase, one of my favourite heroines among all manga/anime. I despise Lynn MinMay. ;p
I loved Macross Plus, in fact it was the only "sequel" that I liked.

As you said, anything is better than Macross 7. :~ I´m really curious about Macross F.[/QUOTE]


- Slayers : Favorite characters? If you've watched the OVAs, which is your favorite one?
Lina > all #D But I love the entire cast ;~) Naga, Zel, Gourry...just can´t choose one.
I´ve watched the OVAs a loong time ago..i remember liking them, but i don´t remember their titles^^ There was one with Lina, Naga and a fashion designer that was kinda silly, though. ;p


- Lodoss : Favorite characters? Which one would you choose, between cosplaying as Deedlit or as Pirotess? :XD
My favs are Parn, Deed and Pirotess #D
For cosplaying? Hahah Pirotess is a lot cooler, but I don´t have that body, so I´d go with Deedlit #D



Tooons of work to be dooone, gotta get going ;~~ Keep on asking, this is so fun! ;D

I can relate to that :XD I'm born right between Gemini and Cancer, so my parents picked up Cancer as my zodiac sign (like my brother), but I switched to Gemini after that fiasco with Deathmask (;×_×) And I have to agree that poor lil' Aldebaran just kept getting his sorry arse kicked everytime^^;;


Lina > all #D But I love the entire cast ;~) Naga, Zel, Gourry...just can´t choose one.There haven't been that many series where all the main characters are just that great, huh? (even if Lina is definitely above the rest, and my second favorite character ever :love). Ever checked the novels?


Misa Hayase, one of my favourite heroines among all manga/anime. I despise Lynn MinMay. ;p

Alright, more questions then :
- Suzumiya : Your favorite characters? If you had to take part in a brigade like the SOS-Dan, which role would you rather fit in? (leader, vice-leader, multi-purpose slave, bookworm, mascot or just side helper nyoro~n?)
- Lucky Star : Favorite characters? Don't you think Konata x Kagami is one damn great pairing? :nuts (I had to ask that one :XD)
- FFT : Delita and Agrias, I guess? :XD Don't you think that the last Delita x Ovelia scene after the credits of the game was just awesome? FFT had Cloud as a special character, and its PSP remake has Balthier from FFXII : if you could have picked any FF character to put as a special character in FFT, which one would it have been?

No...i don´t think they were translated in that time #D

- Suzumiya : Your favorite characters? If you had to take part in a brigade like the SOS-Dan, which role would you rather fit in? (leader, vice-leader, multi-purpose slave, bookworm, mascot or just side helper nyoro~n?)
I love Kyon. I wish I could take him and protect him from Haruhi´s abuses. #D I also like her...and Nagato. I don´t like Mikuru though, I usually hate that type of character ;p
I think I´d be the multi-purpose slave like Kyon - I already am, at work. ;_;


- Lucky Star : Favorite characters? Don't you think Konata x Kagami is one damn great pairing? :nuts (I had to ask that one :XD)
Konata is my alterego. She is SO MUCH LIKE ME, that I can´t even believe, it feels like the author knew me haha #D When she speaks of buying 3 equal cards....i looked to my card collection and then...#D The constant MMO playing, MMO frienships and reaction to rare item drops... (although I had to stop playing, but my in-game friends are always tempting me ;_;)
Even her friendship with Kagami, I have a "Kagami" in real life too. And...they have a cute friendship. I just can´t see it another way ^^;


-FFT : Delita and Agrias, I guess? :XD Don't you think that the last Delita x Ovelia scene after the credits of the game was just awesome? FFT had Cloud as a special character, and its PSP remake has Balthier from FFXII : if you could have picked any FF character to put as a special character in FFT, which one would it have been?

Noo! Mustadio and Agrias! They complete each other! #D
Yeah, that Delita x Ovelia scene was fabulous. I almost cried #D
If I could choose a character to put into FFT? I´d go with Terra, Setzer or Locke from FF6. They fit perfectly. #D


Agrias!!!

Welcome to quiz time!
:glomp


Who's your favourite architect and why?
It´s not because I´m brazilian, but I must say that Oscar Niemeyer > all. He doesn´t just draw buildings, he makes poetry ;~) Some critics bash him saying that his projects are beautiful, but not functional...but his buildings are functional for the things they are supposed to be used! What´s better than a museum that is a sculpture, an work of art itself?
This year he´ll be 100 years old. And he´s STILL WORKING. He´s an example not only of love for architecture, but person.

Asides from him, I love Santiago Calatrava, Alvar Aalto and Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright is one of my biggest influences.


What's the building that you will ever want to see (if its still around) and why?
I can´t die without visiting Brasilia (capital of Brazil, the first planned modern city of the world). All of Niemeyer´s best works are there...and the city itself is a piece of the history of architecture, i think it´s an example even abroad. I´m just waiting an opportunity to go there.

I´d love to visit the Opera House in Australia, Calatrava´s Tenerife Opera House, Fallingwater residence by Wright...and all the works by Antoine Gaudi. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention him, he was superb. Park Guell and the church of the sacred family...wow.


Do you read any shoujo or yaoi? :amuse
I used to read magical girls shojo, like Sailormoon, Wedding Peach, Magic Knight Rayearth by Clamp, Fushigi Yuugi...now I´m starting to read Nana.

I like drawing a lot, it´s one of my favourite hobbys. I´m always drawing at boring classes, and people know me at the university as "that girl that´s always doodling those big eyes people" #D I collect all of those doodles at my deviantart gallery

:pmg
do you travel a lot? have you ever come to portugal?

I have a serious airplane phobia....and I don´t travel much because of it. ;p Call me crazy, but that´s it. ;_;
I´ve never been abroad, and I only know 10 cities in Brazil, I think (Iguaçu falls not included ;_;) ;p


When I moved from Rio to Fortaleza (3000km distance), everyone except me wanted to go by airplane. I made my father (and my dog =x) travel with me by car. The travel was supposed to be done in 3 days, but the car broke, my father became sick...and in the end, OUT CAR CAUGHT FIRE. We managed to save it thanks to some kind people.

When we finally got here, after 5 days, my mother and my sister appeared - safe and sound, after a comfortable 4 hours airplane travel.

But I do not regret it. Seriously. u_u


(I´ve already travelled by plane, many times. But is always terrifying to me. I´d travel by foot, by boat, by anything instead of a plane if I could. Yeah, I agree, I should see a psychologist.)

Hey, at least you guys had an adventure! Makes for fun memories (though I'm sure it was a nervous experience at the time!)

How did your car catch fire, though?

And my mom also has a plane phobia as well. The fact that the few times she does get on a plane to fly, there's always some landing problems, doesn't exactly help alleviate her fears...

I think for some people flying just isn't meant to be something they experience too much. I've never had problems aside from ear-popping and headache pains though.

What's the farthest car trip you've ever been on? Rio to Fortaleza?

The car caught fire because of a pane in the electric system. As the car broke several times during the trip, we had to stop at lots of different repairing stores around brazil...one of those must have screwed the battery wires ¬¬

Yeah, that was my biggest car trip. ;p

NDS lite is around $130 in the US. Don't think anyone is selling the non-lite version new anymore. You might be able to find it used online for pretty cheap though.

Agrias
November 12, 2007, 05:48 PM
I hate living in Brazil when it comes to videogames ;_;

A DS here costs R$ 600 ~ 800 - like $300 or $400! C´mon, i could buy a Wii with this in the us. ;-;
We manage to find some cheaper ones for R$450, something like $225, but it´s very rare...

Gold Knight
November 12, 2007, 06:03 PM
That sucks. I think it's possible here to get a DS at $60 too, but kaylee's right, it's around $130 for the most part.

But I must say that playing mario kart while waiting in a giant line must be wonderful. And final fantasy, of course. #D And trauma center. And that lawyer one. And naruto.

I guess i really want it for the games. ¬¬

Speaking of Sai, what do you think he's been up to in the manga? He's been suspiciously absent for a long time now...

Gold Knight
November 17, 2007, 11:28 AM
What about Yamato?

As for Sai, kaylee, he's still with Naruto's search group, right? I wonder how popular he is nowadays in Japan. It's possible that Kishimoto might have been told by his editor that Sai wasn't a popular character and so he decided to put less focus on him on missions where he's with Team 7. Kishimoto is still likely saving him for a dramatic arc involving the Root though.

He WAS! He suddenly disappeared, since when Team Konoha reunited after Deidara´s final bang - someone said "everyone is gathered here" or something like this, but Sai wasn´t there! He has not appeared in any chapter since then, look closely at every group shot. He´s not there.

I even thought that maybe Kishimoto has forgotten to draw him along with the others and was going to correct this on the tankubon release, but I don´t really know if he did. Fact is that Sai disappeared. ;p


Speaking of Sai, what do you think he's been up to in the manga? He's been suspiciously absent for a long time now...
I think he´s following Sasuke without the others. Maybe Danzou is up to something again? >D No, I don´t think Sai would turn "evil" again, it would be a stupid and unnecessary plot twist.




Agrias, what did you think of the latest Naruto episode? Better than the chapter? Are you a fan of Sai?
I liked it, not as much as episode 33...fun, anyway. I like those arc-introduction (with no fights ;p) chapters, and I love seeing old characters appearing again...this time it was Ino. Although I don´t like her at all, she looks cute. #D
I expected Yamato to have a far more friendly voice, his seiyuu has such a creepy tone...
I kinda like Sai. Not one of my favourites, but a nice one. I love his stupid jokes. :p
And he´s an artist ninja, I really liked those...I´ve always dreamed about a Sai x Deidara fight, 2D x 3D ;~~

Exactly, Agrias! This is what I was referring to, GK. The last time we saw Sai was right after Deidara's kamakaze blast (http://www.onemanga.com/naruto/363/03/).

After that, there were several group shots, and Sai was left out of all of them. Intentionally? Who knows. Weird that none of the characters mentioned it though. Eh, it's probably innocent.

Chapter 364, page 12 (http://www.onemanga.com/naruto/364/12/)
Chapter 365, page 3 (http://www.onemanga.com/naruto/365/03/)
Chapter 365, page 11 (http://www.onemanga.com/naruto/365/11/)



I think he´s following Sasuke without the others. Maybe Danzou is up to something again? >D No, I don´t think Sai would turn "evil" again, it would be a stupid and unnecessary plot twist.


Yeah, I don't just want a repeat of what's happened before. But Danzou is up to something.



I expected Yamato to have a far more friendly voice, his seiyuu has such a creepy tone...


Yeah, I was thrown off by his voice too. And his animation too actually. He seemed kinda creepy, like a doll or something.

Gold Knight
November 17, 2007, 07:20 PM
I'll be flabbergasted. I never even noticed that Sai apparently went his own way apart from the others.

Wow, and nobody even noticed that he's absent, it seems. Guess Sai is really not that popular. :XD

And he can't be tailing Sasuke, because Karin would have sensed him as well. Hmm, I guess he did go his own separate way. Interesting!

And hmm, about Yamato, maybe they just got carried away by his "scary face" moments and picked somebody who would have a fun voice for that scene, but I guess I wouldn't like it if he always had that tone all the time...

Aaah it´s pretty nice ^^ Brazil is a very catholic country, so people take xmas really seriously. All sorts of celebrations and things like that...i´m not that religious, but the xmas vibe is everywhere, and i really like it =] Warm and cozy #D

We usually spend xmas with our families (friends have to wait till new years day ;p), preparing all those traditional foods (turkey, rabanada - i don´t think people know this hehe, it´s delicious - panettones and all) and waiting till midnight to eat, playing secret santa and all those things. I really like the xmas family gathering, my family is so big that xmas is the only period when I get to see almost all of them ;p

I guess it´s a typical traditional xmas for almost everyone here ^^

Aaah...I was just discussing this with Kaylee and Khal on irc today. I agree that he´s gonna find his end soon, but they think it´s going to take longer...

If he doesn´t die now, i hope to see some Madara x Itachi interaction. Madara has already appeared as the main bad guy, but he needs something to show this. Pain killed Jiraiya to prove his point. Maybe Madara gives Itachi some asskicking to show who is the boss...;p

And..just so you can measure my popularity at orkut: NBDB has a side-community called "Celebrities in dattebayo". Once I was invited to it....but then almost no one knew me there, so i left it ^^;

And...we use our photos at orkut, just like everyone uses them at Facebook...orkut is google´s facebook, incredibly famous at Brazil. But i guess its very uncommon to use our own photos in foruns...never thought about it before, but isn´t it strange? Orkut and Facebook are social networks....but aren´t foruns too? Meh, social networks are meant to discuss other people´s lifes, that´s why no one "covers" themselves. Foruns have other purposes....or not. Hehe. :)

Well, this forum is comprised mostly of fanboys and fangirls of many different manga and anime characters, and maybe we like to be identified with these characters, or just to announce who we like the best with our avatars. (I know I've always enjoyed having Kakashi avatars.)

Most people on these forums are actually pretty shy about their own identity.

And you'll always be a celebrity in my book, Agrias ^^

January 31, 2008, 09:16 PM
Talk with some people in the MSN solve only in part the problem. Because there is people that you will never have enough friendship to ask"Hi bud lets talk in MSN because in curious to see you face" That would be odd =)

Understand me, I'm not saying bad from this style of forum he in the MH is in this way and end. No big deal.

But otherside is nice see with how you are talking. My sense of anonymity are very poorly evolved

And Natan, well, it's not such a dream, we do have a Members Pics thread over in General Discussion. And many of the most active posters here have posted their pics (not all, but a lot of them).

Biggest closet pervert huh? Well, Winny did call me Ebisu... but I prefer to think of myself as an admirer of beauty... :love

But it's hard to really turn me on though, especially after all these years of drawing naked women in art classes during college, you know. You'd have to look like Jessica Alba nowadays to really trigger the pervert in me. xD

Basically I'll tend to make some ribald remarks about people's art if I see any reason to, but that's just because I'm easily amused by these things. :p

For some reason though I've been commenting more on Agrias' art lately, I just realized. I don't know why. Sorry Agrias - I guess your art is just sexy! XD

I absolutely LOVE Genshiken. I re-watched it on the carnival holiday, and finally took the time to watch the ovas and the 2nd season, that i hadn´t watched yet...i´m so sad that it has ended, i felt like the characters were so much like me, the end made me feel like good friends going away ;~~~~~~~~~~

*Saves your signature before you take it down* That's one I just have to keep, it does give me a good chuckle. ^_^

And yeah, I have to admit I was "seeing things" - I wasn't that familiar with how Agrias' character looked and I didn't realize that was supposed to be a chestplate on there instead of being a gown of some kind, actually. >.> Sorry about that!

I've been playing a lot of FF XII lately. I actually started it two winters ago with some other MH moderators at the time (I remember Ayah, Tammy, and Katy playing it as well - where were all the guys? XD) but at some point I quit, mostly because I was a bit underwhelmed by it. But as a Final Fantasy fanatic, I had to go back to it eventually because I hadn't finished it yet. I'm enjoying it much better this time though - I think because it's actually a relaxing game all things considered, and that's what I really need right now. XD

So far I've defeated 25 marks, I'm about 2/3 of the way through the game (I think) and I have 6 espers. :3

Hmm, I don't have FFT Advance, but I'm playing FF6 on my Gameboy Advance at school... between classes of course :XD

But I'm wishing I had that Nintendo DS after all because they completely revamped FF4 and it looks great on DS. I'm hoping they do the same for FF5 and FF6. That would be sweeeeet!

It was like:

Sai: I think we'll be able to get along just fi-

Sasuke just appeared behind the large snake monument within Orochimaru's hideout at the end of the last episode. They did a pretty good job of capturing the ominousness of that scene from the manga, I have to say.

I'm wondering whether they'll show more of the great animation that they had at the beginning of the anime, before the first episode, that previewed Sasuke and Naruto meeting for the first time.

i also think sasuke's appearance was great in the manga, can't wait to see that in anime!!!

and about that preview, it was really great animation, but i think those who only watch the anime were somewhat confused by that scene. because sasuke would only really appear after dozens of chapters...

Gold Knight
February 12, 2008, 06:26 AM
Yeah that was an interesting move on the animators' part to show that dramatic scene right off the bat.

I think it's just to try to please all the Sasuke fans. They were all obviously aware the Sasuke had just become Japan's most popular character in the series, and they knew Sasuke wouldn't show up until now. I think they made the right choice, it made everybody excited and at least for the first 30 episodes, people were still excited. I think it worked very well in ensuing that Shippuden would continue to carry the torch from the original series.

What do you think Agrias? Don't be shy, say something :3

Manga is nice because the storyline it´s ahead of anime >D And I love to see the art.
But i also really love to see everything animated, with sounds, songs an all :) But i can´t decide which version is my favourite. I guess manga wins, at least at the shippuuden part...



I'm wondering whether they'll show more of the great animation that they had at the beginning of the anime, before the first episode, that previewed Sasuke and Naruto meeting for the first time.
I don´t think they´ll do that again..it was just a small gift to reward us for the end of the fillers #D

Manga absolutely wins for me for Part One AND Shippuden... I'm still a big fanboy of Kishimoto's artistic style if nothing else, and I much prefer to see how it's done in sequential storytelling rather than animation.

Well I guess the fillers were bad enough I can see why they'd try to do something special at the start of Shippuden... XD

Good luck with your classes Dani <3

Hehe, I really wonder sometimes if these fillers do more damage than they do any good for the anime. Is it REALLY necessary to have Naruto and Bleach on-going all year long? They'd probably receive far more attention if the fillers didn't burn out so many of the fans. :darn

thiagojoe
February 13, 2008, 06:15 AM
i don't know about bleach, but naruto's first fillers were kinda nice... but when they begun making a 1,000 short stories outside the original chronology, that really made me angry!!! :-* i mean, they could have shown some stories about jiraya training naruto, kakashi gaiden, etc. not making up useless stories and useless characters!!! and they were really long, i was starting to watch the fillers when shippuuden came out - i did not think, i threw them away!!! eheheheh (although i have a friend who survived watching every single filler!!!)

Agrias, good luck with classes!!! i know it's a tough time... i graduated two years ago in chemical engeneering, but i never stopped studying - i'm applying for a master's degree by the middle of the year. i also work, i don't have time to do many things i like and sometimes i feel like i have no social life, but whatever!!! hehehe :-P And you, what are you studying???

I swear I wanna throw up if I do any CAD again for the next few weeks. :darn

I've heard the courses in other countries is pure design... When we had exchange students from Canada they were surprised we had structural subjects, and higher calculus and stuff.

Well, we have plenty of structural and calculus subjects, but the course focus on building and urban design (urbanism is a big highlight). We have slight knowledge of structure calculus, but i guess i'm not confident about big structures...small ones, like 3-pavement houses, i can handle. ;p

What was your thesis theme? I was kinda unsure about mine, but I have decided my project...I'll restore an old historical museum, and build a modern expansion for it...It will mix architecture, restoration and urban design, i think it'll be cool :)

Yeah that's a nice topic. Restoration is also hot stuff these days. :)

I chose to build up from a beauty salon, making it into a small theme park, hee. Very amusing to conceptualize, but a pain to design. >.< A lot of professors were really skeptic about it (since they were all male LOL), but I was able to pull through with it. What made it a thesis was all the semiotics behind it, and all the gender issues and political stuff. But that was easy, I just had to read up on it. -_-

Well, i love chemistry; i made a technician course here in rio during high school and after that i enrolled in UERJ for 5 years of chemistry engineering; i like to point that i enjoy more the chemistry than the engineering, but it has a wide variety of jobs. During graduation i used to work inside college in researches, after that i got a job as chemistry technician. Nowadays i work at Petrobras but i'm still having a preliminary formation course for the enterprise. i will only know how the work really is after course, but i'm getting an idea as i'm in 'experiencing state'... if i am able to choose i'll stay in the researching field.

it's funny how people here in brazil think of architects and engineers as rivals, my profession allows me to study not only chemistry but also mechanics, physics, calculus, etc. as much as architects have influences on various subjects. about your master's degree, i would advise you to do it as soon as you can, because people say the older you grow the harder it gets. but i see many older people in my class, so if you feel like waiting, it's not a big deal. my thesis shall be finished by the middle of the year, and doing that BESIDES work is really tough; you must know it as you're studying and working. about you having to move, i think that if you have a dream you should go for it at any costs; and if you stop to think it's at most two years, i believe one can live away from family this period of time. i myself LOVE my family and my girlfriend, but if i have to work far from rio i wouldn't mind, because i know they'll understand - as they love me too. it's not like i'm "severing my bonds" like Sasuke, hehehe!!!

I love big cars, the more space the better! But then I'm a big guy :p I love my jeep but it is a bit small for me somehow. At least you have an alternative to your car for the moment to get things done.

What is Juno?

And yeah, it's frustrating to use the keyboard on a laptop. But it's fun to play SNES ROMs on them, on the other hand, lol. You can set the keys so that your hand only have to be on the bottom row to press the commands, and it's comfy playing games on it. :D

I wanna watch Juno too, I think it's very interesting... you watched it on the big screen?

What is Juno?

Yeah, yeah! Then i´ve dld it to watch again and again...and i´m gonna buy the dvd, for sure. It´s already one of my favourite movies <3

GK, Juno is a movie about a teenager that gets pregnant. And...surprise surprise! It´s NOT about a melodramatic confrontation between parents and kids, or about a jerk boyfriend!
It´s just the story of a very honest (and funny) girl. A must see ;~~)

Ah yeah, it was indicated to Oscar :D I hope it wins, although I find it very difficult...the academy only chooses movies no one likes, hehe.

(ops...i remembered lots of good winner movies. shame on me.;p)

Hahahaha! Our dog is a coward, poor little Joe #D Once he was totally cornered by a lil angry poodle...hehe ^^;;;

But It´s very safe around here ^^
In fact, Brazil is a lot safer than the newspapers make it look like. Not as much as I´d like to, but not so terrible ;p


I wasn't too crazy about my museology classes in college. How are the museums around where you are?
Small and poor...the best museums are in Rio and São Paulo. Here are only small old museums, each of them for an specific theme. Like Anthropology, or audiovisual, or "story of forró" (a kind of terrible regional music ;p

My project is based on this...i´ll get the best "old and poor museum" and expand it so it gets big and nice and modern, without losing it´s "old building" touch.. :D
(it´s harder said than done, though. ;_;)


I love big cars, the more space the better! But then I'm a big guy :p I love my jeep but it is a bit small for me somehow. At least you have an alternative to your car for the moment to get things done.
For me, smaller ones win :D Easier to park and more economy of gas (in my case, i can choose between gas or alcohol, that´s why i love my car...alcohol is a lot cheaper #D)



Que tenha um bom dia!

Like what? XD

You ARE right, they don't usually pick movies that I think actually deserve to win, or it's like politics; they pick the best director, but not necessarily the movie that he directed, because they feel like they need to give it to another movie whose director didn't win.

OK, they did give the Oscar to Return of the King, though...

That reminds me, the Oscars are actually tonight. :XD I guess I'll keep an eye out for this Juno movie you like so much.


Hahahaha! Our dog is a coward, poor little Joe #D Once he was totally cornered by a lil angry poodle...hehe ^^;;;

Wow, a poodle? That's embarrassing. >___> :p


But It´s very safe around here ^^

That's good to hear. But say if there was a break-in or something, what would you use to protect yourself? Do you have a big baseball bat, or a katana? ;)


Small and poor...the best museums are in Rio and São Paulo. Here are only small old museums, each of them for an specific theme. Like Anthropology, or audiovisual, or "story of forró" (a kind of terrible regional music ;p

While I was in school for history, I found out that the head of our history department was the foremost expert on the history of Brazil. Unfortunately I never did get to take one of his classes before I decided to change my masters, but I thought that was cool. XD


My project is based on this...i´ll get the best "old and poor museum" and expand it so it gets big and nice and modern, without losing it´s "old building" touch.. :D
(it´s harder said than done, though. ;_;)

I remember you saying that, that sounds like a very smart project though. You can do so much more with a museum than any other old building, I think, and get away with it. Just look at the Guggenheim! :XD

Will you be showing us a few drafts? :D


For me, smaller ones win :D Easier to park and more economy of gas (in my case, i can choose between gas or alcohol, that´s why i love my car...alcohol is a lot cheaper #D)

Ugh, yeah, one of the serious drawbacks of my jeep is it guzzles up so much gas. But at the time I brought it, gas was not quite so bad, so I had no way of knowing how bad it would get... :darn

But it's easy to park with my jeep too actually. :D

It's true that most Americans are geographically challenged. Most of us don't even know what all the 50 states are in our own country, much less what's out there in the rest of the world, besides vaguely knowing where Paris and London and Australia are... though we're beginning to be much more aware of the rest of the world after we went to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Anyway this is Agrias' thread, you should ask questions about Brazilians here ;)

Olá olá GK :*

I´m totally into my graduation project and some extra work...it´s sunday morning and i was reading about the philosophy of regional museums...very boring, ne? =p

My parents travelled to Rio, and i´m alone at home with my sister and the dog..
Something is not right with my car and i dunno what to do, the mechanic said he´s only coming here wednesday...i´m using my dad´s car instead of mine for a while, but his car is very big and i feel unconfortable driving it...mine is so small, it makes a enormous difference ;p

I watched Juno for the second time yesterday....i´m so in love with the soundtrack. :love

My pc is still broken, and i´m getting tired of my notebook´s keyboard...


i think that´s all ^^;;
<hr noshade size="1">
wow, my sig is soooo outdated. gotta think about a new one.

good luck in your project, i think anything is boring when you like it, but some times colege work feels like 'a pain in the ass'... i enjoy visiting muesums too, and here in rio there are some good museums... oh, and i like 'forró' - only to dance, though :)

So you're home alone with a sister and a dog??? have a party!!! hehehe i also believe here in rio things are sometimes less dangerous as media makes it look like, although we always have to keep an eye out in the streets - but just like somewhere else in the world.

i would love to watch juno, i didn't have a chance to watch this weekend, maybe next - too bad it did'nt get the best movie oscar, bu the writer got a prize!!! :)

here in rio it's about 25 to 30 °C (average temperature). somedays we get even 38°C this year.
in fortaleza, where Agrias lives, i believe it's a bit hotter, and the temperature is almost constant during the year because it's nearer to the equator line.

I´d say....this "helicopter cabs" are very, very rare, most common in São Paulo, but very rare anyway. Just for veeeery rich corporation presidents and things like that ;p
But i´ve worked in 2 projects with helipads myself...but they´re corporate buildings. Not every building have a helipad, it´s rare. ;p I´ve never heard of this "helicopter" fame before...funny ^^;;

Really? Thanks a lot ^^; My english is not sooo good, though...i really have trouble when trying to say some things, and my grammar is poor ^^;

Actually, english is an obligatory in school; spanish isn´t, and I don´t know a single word of spanish ^^;
Portuguese is our only official language. People misunderstand this because portuguese and spanish are both derived from latin, what makes them kinda similar - but not so much...in fact,they´re very different ^^; I can´t blame anyone for not knowing this, though...i guess Brazil is the only country in Latin America that doesn´t have spanish as an official language, or even as a "side" language :p

And I don´t speak japanese also, but i´d really like to....and i´d love to learn german and suomi, they´re beautiful languages. People say that people who are able to speak fluent portuguese are able to learn any language very easily, so it´s worth a try^^

Your english is not really poor, i believe we (brazilians) just get in trouble because we lack conversation pratice. for example, i practice writing here in the forums and reading through the mangas (and also scientific arcticles), but i don't really listen or talk in english for a loooong time. i believe this is a major drawback, and when people visit some english-speaking country this practice is so current that it's almost natural. Your english is really nice and clear to me ^_^ !!!

i believe that nowadays students in secondary school may choose english or spanish, but i'm not sure. when i went to school there was only english... but i believe i prefer english because it's more simple ^_^

i would like to learn japanese and german as well; but i think the first will be tougher because of the ideograms - it's like learning a new alphabet, isn't that?

and in brazil (i prefer to write brasil, hehehe) touristic places always have english speakers (and other languages too) to help out foreign people, so it's not something to worry!!! :)

Katy does it the most frequently here, Eileen started the tradition, eni does it sometimes lately, and I've succumbed to doing it every now and then too :p

It's the only cure to "MH obsession." But it's not really so much a ban as it is just now removing all ability to "write on" the forums while you're logged on your name. Can still see the forums when logged out and download, though.

Agrias
April 06, 2008, 02:52 PM
This is such a difficult question ;____; There are so many!


http://www.gaudidesigner.com/data/article/16.jpg


Sagrada Familia by Gaudi, in Barcelona, is one of my favourite ones. The incredible mathematic studies Gaudi had to do to build it - when no one even dreamed about computers - are awesome! That church is more than architecture....it´s a sculpture, and it´s...totally human labor and love! I just can´t explain it. ;~ When I think about it, I feel guilty for bashing Autocad. The guy made it all with paper and his hands, for god´s sake! ;~~~~)

Gaudi started to build it in 1882, spent all his life on it, died without seeing the complete work...and it hasn´t been finished till today, people are still working on it! It almost brings tears to my eyes, i hope someday I can visit it. Just perfect. Gaudi > all. ;~~)


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6c/Brazil.Brasilia.01.jpg

http://www.olhao.com.br/images/materias/122007/aq_catedral_a_noite.jpg
http://i1.trekearth.com/photos/23593/catedral2.jpg

Not just because I´m brazilian, but I think that Oscar Niemeyer´s work is top notch. I love each of his buildings, and I can´t just choose one...but as I was talking about churches today, I couldn´t let this one out.

Once again, no computers involved. Oh my, i think I´d never be an architect if I was born some 50 years ago...#D

I´ve never been to Brasilia, it´s kinda far away from where I live...but I really wish to go there, it´s the 1st modern planned city of the world...Niemeyer worked hard on it, and almost all of his famous projects are there.

I love this cathedral for many reasons, but what really caught my heart is the way Niemayer plays with our feelings. By the images, you can see that the cathdral stays alone in the middle of a plateau. You can´t see the entrance.

They say the entrance is a small opening on the floor. You walk some meters in a small corridor with dim light - kind of a claustrophobic feeling. Then you go up a little....and bang! A explosion of light comes from the vitrals, and you end up in the enormous main room.

Niemeyer said he made this in purpose. As we walk in the dark corridor, our pupils dilact so we can get more light and see better. Then, suddenly you enter the bright main room, and you get almost blinded by the light! #D He said this is the feeling he wanted us to have, when entering a sacred place...outside, the world is dark and opressing; inside, everything is big and full of light...ethereal, holy.

I don´t think i´ll ever be able to provoke sensations in people...this is art, only for geniuses ;~~




Hm...gotta go back to my work, i´m detailing a bathroom. Wow. I wonder if Niemeyer detailed many bathrooms when he was a student. At least I have Autocad ;____;

I´ll show more of my favourite works later ^^ You girls should show some of your favorites also, maybe i don´t know them! =]

baboysai

The most difficult part is starting the projects, it takes lots of days and in the end everything could turn out to be pretty bad, and so we got to start all over....

Hey guys, that´s Leo, my "real life" best friend. He´s also an architecture student, and he loves to joke around and bother me. As we would say over here, ele adora frescar com a minha cara. #D I guess he signed up just for that. #D

Detailing bathrooms is easy, it´s just boring ;p

The most difficult part is starting the projects, it takes lots of days and in the end everything could turn out to be pretty bad, and so we got to start all over....

i believe it's just like we engineers, when we have to begin some new project; one of the most difficult issues we have to go through is lack of data...

mangas about architechture was funny :tem

My wife! Have you seen the most recent news about Slayers Revolution (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-04-10/slayers-revolution-tv-series-website-opens)? It should make your day as much as it made mine :nuts

I wonder if you play DoTA, Agri-chan. Because they did a custom hero with Lina Inverse as the inspiration.

This is such a difficult question ;____; There are so many!


http://www.gaudidesigner.com/data/article/16.jpg


Sagrada Familia by Gaudi, in Barcelona, is one of my favourite ones. The incredible mathematic studies Gaudi had to do to build it - when no one even dreamed about computers - are awesome! That church is more than architecture....it´s a sculpture, and it´s...totally human labor and love! I just can´t explain it. ;~ When I think about it, I feel guilty for bashing Autocad. The guy made it all with paper and his hands, for god´s sake! ;~~~~)

Gaudi started to build it in 1882, spent all his life on it, died without seeing the complete work...and it hasn´t been finished till today, people are still working on it! It almost brings tears to my eyes, i hope someday I can visit it. Just perfect. Gaudi > all. ;~~)

Not just because I´m brazilian, but I think that Oscar Niemeyer´s work is top notch. I love each of his buildings, and I can´t just choose one...but as I was talking about churches today, I couldn´t let this one out.



Hey, the Gaudi's building is impressive. I'm not sure what style do you call that - gothic? But these are the kind of buildings that i prefer anytime over the modern clean look buildings these days, which means, i can't relate to the second style that you've show here. And you are right!! It's totally amazing how did they ever do those complicated buildings without using autocad at all.

The one 'building' that always make me wonder is the pyramids. How did they ever do that?? Elephants? Triangle wheels? Labour?! What's your theory on it? :amuse

Speaking of pyramids, that was my term paper in high school. Quite entertaining paper to do, really. It's a testament to human ingenuity, and of course, slavery hehehe. But if I remember correctly, egyptians themselves were involved in the making, and were quite dedicated about it too, because of their beliefs.

Thats a sad thing to say.. yet perhaps true.. America the Brittania of cg.


Well since you and bb are future architects I'd thought I'd mention my thoughts on it. Basically, my grasp of architecture is that you guys design beautiful buildings but I feel that alot of times we forget about the old beautiful buildings. I know when I travel I've seen alot of amazing structures but yet other that are old and diminshed. If only we could focus on restoration of buildings instead of new all the time, I think things would be better.

baboysai
April 18, 2008, 01:46 AM
Gots, it actually depends on the architect. There are some who specialize in Restoration all their life, like my professor (who teaches historical architecture, btw).

And am I right in recalling that Agri-chan's thesis was restoration as well? Or adaptive reuse something?

As babo said, my graduation work will be about restoration ^^ We can't just forget the old buildings...each building is a living proof of our existence and knowledge at the time :) What would we think of the egyptians if there weren´t the pyramids? :)

New architecture is good also. We can't just keep on repeating what has been already done just for the sake of the "old times"...in the future, people should look back at our architecture and think "wow, at that time, with that technology, they could do nice things like this!" just like we think about the pyramids ^^

Hope you get well soon, i had a flu or sth like that two weeks ago, but mine wasn't that strong... it was even lighter than i thought because here in Rio de Janeiro the epidemia of Dengue Fever (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dengue_fever) is a tough illness, even my sister had it...

kyaaaaa so what do you think of it? Who's your favorite character? (still Suzaku?) Do you wanna move on to R2?

Agrias
April 18, 2008, 09:24 PM
I must admit the last episodes were breathtaking. I'm sure looking forward to R2, but i guess i'll wait till more episodes come out, so i can watch all of them in a row like i did now ^^

I couldn't fall in love any character though...i still liked Suzaku, even more after THAT thing. But I can´t say i love him, nor any other character...

I usually measure my love for characters when I want to buy a figure of them. In this case, I´d love a figure of...Lancelot, because it looks cool and nothing more. ;/

(Hm...a Kallen figure would be nice also. She was my favorite female char...but i can't say i really like her either ^^; )

Ok then pirulito, Itachi and Sasuke vs both of us, and after the fight, finally Agrinhas will forget them, and from that point, its up to you to take the love from our beloved Holy Knight;

Well, the truth is since Agrias sai that she would kick my ass if we lived together because I frequently bash Kishimoto Sasuke fanboy, I've been looking for another love.

But I'm still jealous. Hell, I lost to a brat with red eyes who just talk about his hatred. God, Agrias needs to purify her heart. That's the why I will make a revolution.

patedecarne, you're a good friend who supports me too much. But I feel, it's time for my retreat.
Xophien´s words was too strong.

But I will never forget the day Agrias touched my heart when she taught me how to use spoiler tags. My first spoiler tag was a confession of love. Do you know how romantic it's is?lol

Another love will appear to me, I'm sure.

patedecarne
May 15, 2008, 01:31 PM
No, Pirulito, are you giving up already? Don't waste all the efforts put in until this day; Even if Xophien's words are strong, you must train to become stronger, look:

Naruto will become a Hokage, but he doesn't know how; the only thing he knows is that one day, his final goal will be reached;

Think about it: you don't know how, but someday you'll be at Agrias's side, and I'll support you until then;


I'll support you because Agrias already has so many competitors, and you're the one I chose to help;

Besides, I have another objective in my mind, and isn't Agrias, then don't worry!
