Though some of us first came here already knowing each other, let's do an Introduction thread just in case we have some new shinobi and kunoichi coming here.
Let's do it like Kakashi's idea. Ya know, tell us a little about yourselves. Your favorite things, what you hate most, dreams, ambitions, hobbies, things like that.
I'm Gold Knight and a working photographer (usually sports), and definitely a Narutard. I'm from a Southern state in America and I'm 25 years old. My dreams for the future is to become a world-travelling photographer and successful comic book artist in my spare time. I hate lima beans, and I like to draw and photograph a lot.
My favorite characters in the Naruto series are Kakashi, Naruto, and Shikamaru. In recent chapters a new character appeared that I'm fascinated with, Yamato.
Now, it's your turn, starting with you on the right.
EDIT: This post is from a post made long ago; I'm 28 now >.>;

My name is Allan. The manga's that im currently reading is naruto, one piece, bleach, hajime no ippo, eyeshield21, and gantz. I have a lot of fav's but i just like reading anything from shounen, to shoujo and some seinen. Anything to get my fix ^_^. Been lurking manga for a long time, way back to in college with my first computer just with a dial-up connection.. sometimes just staring at the download bar on mirc... 60mb zip files can be an absolute drag but i'd really just sit there and stare... waiting.
I joined here since the conversations about gantz is really fun to read. The forums have a real friendly feel with no bashing despite some of the really crazy theories that are thrown. Makes the waiting in between chapters bearable, hehe. Do that in IRC and your bound to get insulted...
Hey. I'm Assymilum and am a scanlator (as you can see). I started reading online scanlations around about 2-3 years ago. Still 13, though in the age thingy I answered around 17 or 18 'cause I thought my age wouldn't be allowed. (Like when you make a Yahoo account? They ask for your age? And you need to be above 18, or else ask for parents' allowance? )
My favorite things would probably revolve around watching TV, playing games, and all that leisures. My favorite site would be this website. Second comes crunchyroll. Fav manga would be: Bakuman (yeah, the new series pwns), Reborn!, Negima, TWGOK, Psyren, One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Code: Breaker, Fairy Tail, and a whole lot more. My favorite artist/singer so far would be Ne-Yo.
Hmm, as for my dream... I don't think I have any right now. I just wanna be rich when I grow up. Heheh.
My hobby? Sleeping. Or maybe watching MTV.
As for my likes and dislikes, hmm... I like candies and chocolates. Though I really, really hate veggies. And fruits. And cooking. >_>
wowwowwow, so many new members! Welcome to the site, croissant, Assymilum, and My December! Let any mod, global or admin know if you have any questions or comments or anything. I'd include Black Ops in that list but most of us are rarely around~
Job: Ordinary job at ordinary place. I like it.
Manga I like: Hajime no Ippo, Berserk, Vagabond, Cross Game, Nana
Manga I don't like: Not worth naming
Why I scanslate: Because I like to play with Photoshop and stuff!
Hey guys. I'm Haruka. It feels like I participate in this thread very late since I've been a member of this site for a year. But I guess, it's still alright to post here and do some sharings about myself. Some of you must already be familiar with me because of my One Piece Reviews. No, I haven't established such a prestigious reputation as a reviewer, but if you're a regular visitor to One Piece Review section, you might have encountered my name or my work. I started writing One Piece reviews recently, though I've been yearning to do that since I became a member here. The thing was, I didn't have much time then. But now I do, and I plan to keep it as consistent as I can. I am also doing Hunter X Hunter Reviews. I've only managed to make two (the previous chapter and a review of the entiiiire arc), but I'll update it and complete my "backlogs." Apparently, I love to write. I've stuffed my computer with almost all of my writings - most of them are my anime reviews, character review/analysis, and of course my regular One Piece and Hunter X Hunter Review. I am currently working on my Hunter X Hunter review backlogs and my Samurai 7 fanfic.
I am also a frustrated mangaka. My drawing sucks.... imagine Luffy's style of drawing and you'll get the idea of how "artistic" my skecthes look T_T. But I already have my idea as to how it will be like - the plot, the style, the characters. It's just that I don't polish my ideas about this so I won't feel more frustrated. I am also a member of another forum site, under a different username.
I am very picky when it comes to manga and anime. I usually go for shounen type of series because they are fun and meaningful. I am always impressed to find subtleties in them. Of course, I love One Piece and Hunter X Hunter. I can express all of my reasons for loving them but I don't want to appear like this is my own thread so I'm just saving those reasons for now. The other mangas/animes that I love are Rurouni Kenshin, Death Note, Samurai 7, Naruto, and School Rumble.
