Welcome to the Naruto Theater!
Welcome to our brand-new forum for all anime and movie fans alike to enjoy discussion about the world of Naruto!
Here's what you can discuss here:
1) The latest Naruto episodes!
If you want to create Discussion threads based on the latest episodes, go right ahead and have fun! Feel free to post about where to download them as well.
REMEMBER: No manga spoilers allowed here. That is, any manga discussion past the latest episodes, please don't spoil anime-only fans. Please discuss over in the Naruto Toshokan.
So if you spoil, you may also want to plan for an instanteous vacation from the forums
2) The Naruto Movies
You can also talk about the Naruto movies, if you want to.
3) Naruto Soundtracks & Voice Actors
Or the soundtracks and voice acting. Don't expect me to be a frequent visitor to these threads, though, heh.
4) Naruto Anime English Dubs
If you would like to discuss these too, that's fine. Just a warning to all English Dub-only watchers though - you're very liable to get spoiled here. Also, include (DUB) in your thread titles to avoid confusion.
And of course, General Discussion is fine here too, as long as it's based on the anime...
5) Naruto Characters
Want to talk about your favorite character or to discuss any character's potential or failings? What about their individual design? Then you're in the right place. Create or find a discussion thread about a character and have fun. Don't look to make trouble, though. If you're going to start a thread about a character, it's always best if you LIKE the character, and make the initial post a good, detailed one of why you like the character. If you dislike the character, you can comment later in the thread. But random character-bashing are frowned on here so if you do that, be prepared to see your posts deleted.
6) Naruto Jutsus
One of the most interesting parts of the Naruto series are the abilities of all the various shinobi. Feel free to start a thread about any jutsu that might catch your eye here. Feel free to comment on the special effects and colorings too.
7) Naruto Pairings
Yes, all the possible pairings and so on can be discussed here.
8) Naruto Battles
Talk about your favorite battles, or dream up possible battles between Naruto characters here. If it's a Naruto character match-up with a character from another manga, though, please post it in the Mangaverse forum instead.
9) Naruto Theories
If you have an interesting theory about any of the characters, jutsus, events, or so on, that may be TRUE according to your reasoning, and you have an essay-like post in mind that you'd like to do, go ahead and make a thread about it. Just remember that you'd better be ready to handle some possible criticism. Also - if we don't think your theory had a lot of thought put into it - as far as defending it and the like - and you're just looking for a little attention, don't expect it to last long.
If you want to discuss the Naruto-related games you're playing, you can start threads about them here too, if there isn't one. But bear in mind there aren't THAT many Naruto video games out there, so if you're playing one, then look for the proper discussion thread with the name of the video game. Don't make more than one thread about the game.
1. Be Smart. Remember to make your posts thoughtful and always try to invite good discussion, and have respect for other people's opinions. If we feel that you are deliberately looking to start trouble or to annoy people, don't expect either your thread or posts to last very long.
If you want to make jokes, that's fine, but do it within an already existing thread. Don't start threads just to be a comedian - it tends to lead to spamming since people won't have much to talk about except react to your joke. So please don't make threads dedicated to "joke theories" here.
As long as your post is related to the topic of the thread, it won't be considered spamming or off-topicism. Have fun.
2. Be Neat. Don't make a mess.
Look to see if a thread about your interest already exists: If you are making a series of comments related to Episode 147, and there's already a Episode 147 Comments thread created here, go there instead of creating a separate thread. If you are looking to discuss the Mangekyou Sharingan, then look for the correct Discussion thread about MS. Don't clutter the Toshokan up with threads all about the same subject.
Make your titles very clear: if you are creating the thread, please make sure that the topic is sufficiently self-explanatory in the title instead of making it something like 'OMG What the heck happened here?' Please, please, don't do that - if you make vague titles, even if you have an excellent first post, be prepared to see the title changed by the moderators here to better reflect the subject of the thread.
3. Be Considerate. We have a nice community here. Let's keep it that way. If you make a lot of offensive posts - anything sexual in nature, for example - they'll be deleted. If you include a lot of vulgarity in your posts, that won't be tolerated too often either.
And most of all, don't spoil others. That'll be the fastest way to get banned here, so don't do it. So don't be immature and silly, and you'll be just fine.
Most of all, remember to have fun and enjoy yourself in the company of other Naruto lovers.
