Also....keep in mind, that what I wrote there is not a short summary, there is a brief analysis in there as well...a brief analysis of the characters....I decide to insert that there, because I think that is the tone of the chapter, and I provided an angle from which we can analyze...I can take out the character analysis part at any time, so that anyone can incorporate that, but in more detail...
However if nobody will take character analysis then I will just expand what I wrote in there...and it means that 3 parts of the review are already covered.
Well I don't want to pressure anyone, since this is a test, but maybe you can be done by tomorrow? If you don't have time then Friday is a good day as well...also, what part are you choosing? If you choose Characters, then I will modify my summary, if you will choose something else, then I will take characters as well, and expand what I wrote...
Even though this is a test, I think it's a good practice for all of us to finish our parts as fast as possible, so that the others could start working on their stuff as well...
Sup all. I can do plot (first choice) or character (second choice) development. For this test run, I would appreciate if we could have sections due on Friday. I always have time for Naruto, but I work really long hours, sadly. What will the deadline be for weeks that are not test runs (sorry if I missed it).
So I guess that leaves me with characters? Okay then.
Okay, so my work schedule is as follows for this week:
Off Monday and Tuesday, work 12 hours on Wednesday and Thursday, then off Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
But because it's a 12 hour, 3rd shift job the next week I work:
Monday and Tuesday, then I'm off Wednesday and Thursday... then I work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The hours alternate like that each week. One short, one long. Meaning I just got off of work 2 hours and 20 minutes ago from a 12 hour shift. So after some sleep I can be on to start working on some stuff.
But I want some things squared away first. How many paragraphs should I make my impressions portion, since we're all giving impressions? And second, what else should I pick up in addition, since you want us all to do impressions and something else that takes more work?
I'm guessing predictions along with it?
I give up on understanding how you guys plan to pull this off. Let's just see how it all turns out.
On a more brighter note, I asked gintara to make a Naruto banner for us. Hope she'll make it in time before the 579 deadline.
1. The summary was done by me(which will be edited after I get KiSwordsman's and jdw's part)
2. KiSwordsman is doing characters
3. Jdw is with the plot
4. I talked with Googz about the art, but he said he was busy, but he might cook up something...
5. And the last remained for Delbi, who is also busy
Each of us will write their impressions in the end, like we did the P.S. part of this review
And then ninjabot comes with some predictions...
I will wrap it up with credits and good byes...
It's pretty much like we did the Fairy Tail review...there were 3 of us, so we were perfect to do 3 parts(1 part each)...the reason why it worked well, is because we had clear limitations of what we wrote...I didn't do analysis there, just predictions and so on...in this review we have greater numbers so the tasks need to be set more clearly, so that we do not overlap with what each other is supposed to do...
Oh thanks...I was going to ask about that, because I think after we are done with the writing part we will need to take care of the visuals(which panels to edit, banner etc...)Quote:
Alright I'll have the action section and my impressions done sometime Friday afternoon.
Just a quick suggestion/question. Should we rotate week to week who does what section? Or will certain people do a certain section every week?
I ask this because if we switch week to week it will keep each section fresh, but if we each do the same section every week it will keep continuity. Each option of course has its pros and cons in terms of the quality of the review and I feel confident we all can handle every section except Art which I think should always fall to Googlez if he is willing of course.
If we do decide to each stick with a section, my first choice would be Characters. But since KiSwordsman got it first I would assume he has first dibs.

About that...I was going to ask that after we finished this one....originally this was supposed to be a test run, so I figured that we could do the same format next week as well....but if we will finish in time, then we could rotate next week, or maybe do a rotation every 2 weeks, or every 2 reviews...
I don't know really, I'm okay with any section(including art), but maybe others have preferences...for example jdw chose between plot and characters this week, so maybe that is what he likes to write about...
I think we should see if anyone has certain preferences...if someone does have, then that person will stick to what he likes, and the rest of us might do a rotation...
Ok sounds good to me.
Also, quick question. What site uses the best translations with scans? I've been using mangareader since they are usually quick to get the chapters out but their translations aren't that great. Any suggestions?
