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. :smile-big

My hobbies are mountainbiking, manga/anime, other movies/series and of course my friends!

I like most of the things. Especially food, training and chicks! ;)

Glad to have you both here Simon and Benjamin.  :)

Thanks for the offer Benjamin, I definitely would like to learn a little French.  I suppose we should have a Languages subforum here too.  I'll get to that momentarily.

Edit - ...and it's created!  :knk  You can now teach and learn languages here.

November 22, 2005, 03:05 PM
I guess I should give a little intro about myself...
I'm NJT, I started watching Naruto around two years ago and started translating about a year and a half ago. I've lived in japan for a little over 2 years (plus 3 trips of 3 months each which would probably make it 3 years :p ) I'm married to a Japanese girl and I have a very beautiful daughter :). Right now I'm studying for the JLPT 1 which I'll be taking on the 4th of next month (december). So wish me luck ;).

My favorite things... would be earning money, working on sites, translating and playing 2d fighting games with an opponet that is worthy :D. My favorite fighting game is MvsC2 and Streetfighter zero 3, My favorite character is Dan Hibiki. My favorite Naruto character is Lee.

What I hate most, is people acting high and mighty to other people just because they can do something someone else can't. For no reason should anyone look anyone down, so don't be a prick. Keep in mind though, there are times where you should help people and in helping that doesn't mean doing everything for the person since that person needs to learn their own way and not always rely on help... since that's how we learn by trial and error. So find a good Balance between helping others and letting the person do things on their own :).

My dream, to open many businesses and hopefully become very wealthy and live a life that I've only seen in my dreams....

My hobby is a lot like what I like to do, so yeah nothing more on that. Let me tell you about the kind of schedule I run so you'll know when to catch me.
I work 1-9:30pm Monday- Saturday (jp time) My off days are wednesday and sunday. I've taken up a part time job on Wednesday so I work from 7-9 then after that from 9-12/1 I study with a friend from england and two Japanese girls that I work with. I'm a teacher in a private "cram aka juku" school where I teach English to ages 3-17 (sometimes adult conversation class too.)

My school not only teaches, but creates and sells learning material. Our prime product is Kamishibai(a story board type picture where you see a picture on the front and you have the words to the story on the back), in which I occastionaly have to go to various places in Japan, Shibuya, Shinjuku etc to give performances. My school also does a bunch of events where we(the teachers and I) have to create lots of activities and pretty much do an all day event with games food and all that jazz.

I also run(er used to, ending this month) a tutor service at udanstraight.com. Where I taught Japanese which I have done so for nearly 2 years :). The reason I'm closing it down is because I want to put more effort into my various sites and help the community a bit more. All for free.
So in short, at any given week I work an average 45 hours. I have a wife and a baby that I often neglect to take care of my sites, so forgive me when I do neglect sites to spend time with them ;).

Then on top of the working time and family time, I help other people trouble shoot things they don't know how to do, help them understand weird japanese sentences and give them feed back on their translations. I'm also an active member in many forums. And finally since there is a test I must take this december, a lot of my normally would be free time has been spent studying.

So-- you can see that in a week my time is extremely short, but I still try to do as much as I can. Thanks for taking the time out and reading this, and I hope you enjoy your stay. :ossu

Welcome Zenith, Kepa, DZ, Cyrus, and Matt. Hope you enjoy your time here.

Hoping for some snow here soon.

I am exactly the 100th member to join. ^_^

Thanks for the welcome, Phil. I'd like to see some of your pictures some time - do you have a Deviant Art?

Gold Knight
November 24, 2005, 09:27 AM
Congrats on being our 100th member, heh.

I tried to sign up for a deviantart account once and never got an activation e-mail but that was months ago.  I might consider trying to start one again sometimes.

Most of my recent photographs are owned by the agency I work for, anyway.

I post drawings at NF whenever I can, I put up a Yamato piece in the art forum awhile ago. Check it out if you're interested. ^_^

I'm Tim, and I'm 15 years old (birthday: July 2nd). I live in Southeastern Michigan, and yes I do have a little snow on the ground right now.  ^_^
My likes include manga and anime (of couse), writing, playing video games, and scanlating.
My favorite foods include spaghetti, mac & cheese, pizza, Chinese (specifically almond chicken), and salad (with Italian Dressing). My favorite desserts include New York cheescake, pumpkin pie, carrot cake, and mint ice cream (w/o chocolate chips). My favorite resturants include KFC, Arby's, Wendy's, Olive Garden, and TGI Fridays.

My favorite manga series include Death Note, Bleach, One Piece, Whistle!, Detective Conan/Case Closed, Chrno Crusade, and Beet the Vandel Buster. I am currently reading Naruto, Death Note, Bleach, and One Piece.

My favorite anime include the anime counterparts of the above manga series, FMA, Ghost in The Shell, and Inuyasha. I'm not really watching any anime right now.

My favorite characters include:
Naruto: Zetsu, Sasori, and Deidara.
Bleach: Hitsugaya, Kon, and Yamichika
One Piece: Nami and Usopp
Death Note: Near and L, I suppose
Beet The Vandel Buster: Beet
FMA: Ed and Roy Mustang
Detective Conan: (Dub Nanes): Conan and Richard Moore
Chrno Crusade: Chrno/Chrono
Inuyasha: Sesshomaru and Shippou

My dislikes include people who like to flame and spam forums, and people who act like they're better than everyone else. Just listen to each other's opinions and peacefully decide who's right. There's no need to start yelling and insulting people when you don't like what they said. Also, admit when your wrong. Yes, nobody likes being wrong. But admitting it is better than you just keep on saying those false statements all over the place.

In school, I'm currently taking Spanish 1, so I guess I could teach you all a little Spanish when I have the time. However, I have my scanlation to finish, and it's Thanksgiving, so I probably won't do that today.

And well, I guess that's pretty much it. I like the new forum and I hope its popularity will grow. :amuse

November 24, 2005, 10:00 AM
Yay ! A spanish one ! I studied Spanish before, but i wasn't good :(
And someone who saw Chrono crusade ( i didn't see it, :cry: ) !!
At least, you should try Bleach in anime, it's a very good one :)

November 24, 2005, 10:04 AM
I can try to teach some Italian, since I'm in Italian 1.

Good to see you MnK! Or do you mind if I call you Tim?

I know the Bleach anime is good, and I do watch it. All of those manga series I mentioned, I've seen the anime of except Chrno Crusade. I just haven't had time to watch it (and I don't have it right now).

Y espanol es feliz. No es dificil (And Spanish is easy. It's not dificult.) Although, I suppose learning words in pairs of opposites (bonita y feo/pretty and ugly) and memorizing the verb endings helps. I haven't really touched on sentence structure and past/future tenses of words yet, though. But overall, Spanish is fairly easy. It's just hard to keep it all memorized, at least when you don't use it. Ultimately, though, I suppose it depends on the person and their teacher.

¡También, feliz el día de gracias de acción, todo el mundo! :amuse
Also, happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Edit: (@Giro) No, I don't mind at all.

November 24, 2005, 12:00 PM
OH SWEET!!!!I'm numbah 120!

November 24, 2005, 01:41 PM
I was number 125 :P

Watch your step, you are about to enter the Zardo Zone.Hi, my name is Christopher Zardo. I am 13 years old.I spend most of my time on the computer. I have just recently been introduced into the world of manga so the only one I am reading at the moment is Naruto.My absolute favourite manga character is Gaara of the sand from Naruto :Gaaraball .I would like to read mangas like Bleach or D.N.Angel and One Peice because I have heard a lot of good things about those mangas in particular. Besides spending my time on the computer i enjoy listening to many forms of rock, Alternative, emo blah blah blah.My all time favourite band is System Of A Down. I personally don't like much "Punk" rock.I was born in Canada, Ontario. But my parents are from Italy, and Brazil. I know what your thinking, your thinking about how exotic I must be :P.I don't like people who will lie to your face one second, then say something else the next. Everything else I am pretty kool with, except flaming people :sasufire ><.My hopes and ambitions include becoming a famous game designer like Tetsuya Nomura, or Yoshinori Kitase. Those guys are GODS among men for kids like me.The reason I would like to be a game designer is because I spend most of my time playing games, why not spend most of it making them, also getting paid for it would be a major plus. :D. What I enjoy most out of life is making friends. Thanx for spending your time reading this. Have a nice day.

No to my knowledge.
Your number is the number at the end of the link to your profile. For example, Zenith, the link to your profile is: http://mangahelpers.com/index.php?action=profile;u=58 . Thus, 58 would be your number. I hope that makes it clearer to you. :amuse

Personally, I was the 89th person to join.

Manetheren (aka. ManetherenWolf)

I clean pages whenever needed.
I am the typesetter for Shannaro (only need one :D)
I also work on compiling (sometimes) and Translation finalizing (along with Nihongaeri).

I am also getting into doing Color pages on occaision. (See my Avatar and Sig... Full version will be with the ch.283 release).

-Naruto (of course :D)

-plenty of others...

-Black Cat

I also own nearly 250 Anime DVDs (all official. no bootlegs).

November 26, 2005, 12:48 AM
Hey all, I'm Omolara.
I am a 20 year old junior in college majoring in political science. I speak French and am currently taking Japanese, so I've been dl-ing only the RAW for the past six or seven chapters.

Likes: Naruto, Japanese culture/language, politics, French culture/language, people with sense,

Dislikes: Racism, ingnorance, insensitivity, sexism, and character bashing just to name a few. Poorly formed arguments, horrible grammar/spelling (only if you speak english natively), and plain old stupidity irk also me to no end.

*Note that horrible in this case just means: so impossible to read that it no longer ressembles English. We all make mistakes and/or get lazy, but darn it some things should just come naturally if you're over the age of seven.

Hobbies: Reading, writing, drawing, and playing the clarinet. Can I say politics again?

Oh, and I have a tendency to randomly throw in French/Japanese words or forget how to spell things in English. I have moderately poor keyboarding skills as well.

November 26, 2005, 03:48 AM
Hi everyone!  I'm Nah-nah, I'm 22 years old and I live in the cozy (boring) state of Kentucky.  I live just outside Fort Knox so lucky me gets to hear them firing cannons and other sorts of fun things. X__x

I'm in my second year of college right now and I'm hoping to travel to Japan, Korea, and the Philippines (that's where I was born) one day.  I'd love to travel all over the world, actually ~ it's a dream of mine.  I'm currently bilingual (Tagalog and English), and I'm working on learning Japanese while brushing up on my native language at the same time.

My favorite snack is Pocky.  My favorite animal is the panda.  I love Naruto, Prince of Tennis, Loveless, Hana Kimi, Girl Got Game, Gravitation, and all sorts of other anime/manga series.  My favorite characters in Naruto are Naruto (of course), Sasuke, Itachi, and Gaara.  I am currently in love with Tsuchiya Yuichi from *pnish* as he is the most amazing being on earth, making him the love of my life and my future husband. XD

I hate hate hate Orochimaru, liars, SPAMMERS, and broccoli.

My hobbies?  I like to draw, read, write, collect manga and anime, bake cookies, play the guitar, sing, and swoon over my Tuti (that's Tsuchiya's nickname) stuff.  Oh yes!  And I can sew anything. XD

I have a soft spot for chibi things and baby stuff, so you can constantly see me squealing about how something is cute.

That's pretty much it!  I'm very glad to be here with everyone~  Take care til then!!

November 26, 2005, 04:01 AM
Great stuff :D. Didn't know soo many people were into Japanese :o. I'm planning on working more on my translations, and I'll try and help answer questions that you guys might have regarding things. Nihongaeri is a good person to ask too *D. and Don't forget pazuzu or Iwanin~ so yep, this will be a great place to get answers about Japanese.
Thanks for joining and enjoy your stay :ossu

Welcome, MexicanKingVII & Holmes221!  Hope you have a good time hanging out here.

Also, I figure it's a good time for me to ask you guys whether you mind people using your real names elsewhere on the forum or not. Like for instance Sudarpo, I much prefer using real names than screennames, so let me know.

By the way, for what it's worth, I'm Phil.

Also known as Firu-kun but only Nah-Nah gets to call me that. See ya around. ^_^

I just aim for jpa now.

Still have NS next year, so no merdeka. :darn

December 05, 2005, 05:18 PM
i've yet to visit korea..hehe...only japan.

December 05, 2005, 10:31 PM
Welcome to the Forum! Glad you found your way here, and I hope you stay. I took the JLPT this last sunday and I met a few Korean people that had AMAZING Japanese (could have confused them for natives)

Anyways Korea is neat! I've never been but I love the influnce it had on japan with the whole Yakiniku restaurant. So someday, I gotta go to Korea and have some Yakiniku (not sure of it's korean name) since it's quite cheap there I hear...

December 05, 2005, 11:43 PM
what's yakiniku?

December 06, 2005, 12:01 AM
Litteraly, it's "grilled meat", but it's in fact Korean Barbecue :)

Hint : What does Chouji yell most often ? :)

December 06, 2005, 12:22 AM

December 06, 2005, 12:40 AM
So that "yakiniku" is the same one for japanese ppl as well? I recall having something like grilled barbecue during my visit to japan.

December 06, 2005, 04:02 AM
Yakiniku is a japanese word : "yaki" means grilled (I think : see "yakitori" and "takoyaki") and "niku" means meat (I'm sure :p ). That's why njt said he didn't know the korean name. Anyway I didn't eat any of these, but I'd sure like too :)

December 06, 2005, 04:05 AM
yakitori...what's "tori" then? lolz.

December 06, 2005, 04:09 AM
tori is bird/chicken :) Chidori = Thousand birds (dori because in some composed words, the first letter changes ...). And tako is squid.

December 06, 2005, 05:44 AM

December 06, 2005, 06:51 AM

Edit: Eh, I'd leave the off topic posts alone, NJT, I think it didn't really get out of hand and anyway it's just friendly conversation and getting-to-know other people, which is the point of this thread.

Though it's a good idea to use the Hang Out thread, yeah.

December 08, 2005, 03:50 AM
Hi~ I'm new to mangahelpers but definitely not new to Naruto. ^_^

I'm Sarah, I've been following the manga since somewhere in 2003. I love practicing my Japanese, reading writing and especially speaking it. I hope to some day either teach Japanese in America or teach English in Japan. So yeah, some time soon I'll be able to help out in the translation/scanlation/fansubbing arena. Not good enough yet though, m'afraid.

I'm also a big One Piece fan <3 <3 <3.

December 08, 2005, 03:58 AM
Welcome Sarah. Have a great time here and enjoy yourself. :thumbs

U will soon get to know lots of new friends here. :glomp

December 08, 2005, 04:17 AM

If you want any help/info/advise on Japan, japanese, or teaching in Japan let me know~ Also Hisshouburaiken did the whole exchange thing as well- so you have two people that I know of that taught in japan for a while :).

>>welcome Batz~
A more "personal" intro would be better so we know more about ya but heh, welcome to the forums :ossu

>>welcome esg~
I like the pics you do in the contributions sections~. (I also like guyver too! the shows rocked~)

>>hiya Bebong~
Welcome to the forums! Just a little grammar tip, for Japanese words (that have been adopted into English) they become non-count nouns. So what that means is, you don't add "s" to them. Anime stays anime even if there are 2 or more of them. Same with manga/sushi/ etc.
Just FYI~ Hope you enjoy your stay!

>>Great intro Yalcin!
Wow, turkey-. Seriously the internet is just amazing. Way back in Elementary school when we had to learn about other countries, I had no clue I'd actually speak to someone from each one. The net rocks so much :). Tell us how it is, if you like it or not, what's fun to do... and anything else you can think of (sorry for the questions, you're the first person from turkey i've met (that I know of).
btw, I love Guilty gear to!!!!

Hi... i'm chauron, and someone might know me from the NF already. I have many hobbies, both sports -related, literature and arts- related and spam-related, like gfx- ing and deviating stuff, watching arts from the books and i'm practically living in the deviantart ...

Fav manga, Bleach, fo'sho... naruto aint even close. GTO, DGrayman, 20th Cent.Boys, Blood, Trigun, etc.. and many else... i'm "almost" a freak when it comes to reading the manga. xD

Fav music ... pretty much all kind of stuff and all kind of genres...
And i always *do* listen the music while doing arts, sigs, tags or sketching...

Hi, I'm Bread-Kun. I used to post on NF, but its such a huge place, with so many thousands of people, that i felt kinda like an ant. and i could never get my post count up (post-monger = me). Iv'e read naruto since it was published in SJ USA, and i found NarutoFan about a year ago and i have caught up since. I like this board alot more, especially the Simplicity layout, for some reason. well, that's me in a nutshell.

School now :darn :notrust

December 14, 2005, 05:00 AM
Welcome, Bread-kun.

December 14, 2005, 12:52 PM
Eh? I never introduced myself :s

Ok ok ok. I will then. My name is Matt aka Akasun, and I live in a hole. No. Not really. Anyhow, my ambition in life or life goal is to become a meteorologist, which will become much more interesting with these Global Warming problems. My favorite animals are Polar Bears and they are sadly proven to get extinct in 2012, which also when people predicted Earth will get Global Warming-ified. I live in Canada, in a burrow inside the snow. No. Not really. I hate.... almost every kind of food. Chicken, Turkey etc... I'm a big fan of Japanese and Chinese food, and also Greek food. My favorite food is kiwi. And don't forget the best junk food in the world, Chocolate chip cookies! I hope to be great help here and be an active member. :D

Ok, I'm done talking about depressing stuff.

December 14, 2005, 02:52 PM
Welcome, Bread-kun.

Do you like bread?

Partly, and partly because i couldn't think of a screename a while back, so i picked something really random.

December 14, 2005, 07:56 PM
Im metalanime. I like metal and anime. I like science, especially the deep sea and unknowns. I like sharp objects as well, like swords and knives. I try to collect when i can.

Im not religious, i prefer to beleive in my own ability to accomplsh my objectives, failure to do so falls solely on me, and any success i have falls the same. I play guitar, been playing for a while, though i slacked off for a while. I spend alot of time on the computer, doing color contributions or whatever else i can think of.

I want to go into digital art and design and i like to draw. I suppose im kind of ambitious as i cant really make up my mind as to what i want to do because in reality, i want to at least try and touch every educational plane, anything i feel can help me bring out my mind and potential.

I got into naruto, because i have always liked ninjas. One day I was searching for ninja stuff, and came across a sifl and olly parody song of naruto, so i found it and was hooked right away. this is back just before episode 40, so ive been into it for a while now.

thats about it.

December 14, 2005, 09:33 PM
Welcome metalanime. After your introduction, I somehow find out that your name is not that difficult to remember after all. :D

Enjoy your stay here and have a great time.

December 14, 2005, 09:48 PM
That's a good introduction, Matt.  =D  Though you hate chicken and that sucks.  :(

But anyway, hope to see you both around a lot, and have fun!

December 22, 2005, 12:42 PM
Hello everyone! My name is Alkis (whole would be Alkiviathes), though my roommie and my close friends in Kavala call me Anax from my DotA nick "Anax the Nerd". I was born in 1986 in Athens, though I come from a small town in Greece called Astros (in the prefecture of Arcadia) and have also lived in a nearby town called Leonidion since 1995. As of 2004 I've been living in Kavala, a city of 85k people in Northern Greece on the boarder with Bulgaria, due to my studies. I'm a student at the TEI of Kavala in the Industrial Informatics department. Used to be highly interested in Informatics, becoming all the less interested in it as time passes by and all the more interested in languages and linguistics :tem
My interests are many and spread in various areas. You could say I'm "a jack of all trades but a master of none". I enjoy studying myself a lot and also talking about me all the time, in order to learn more about people in general, since people have so many things in common. I keep a diary since a foggy period around 8th grade, though I rarely read what I wrote in the past. Sorry, to those who get bored of me being so full of myself, seriously I study myself :tem Someone once told me: "Good. Go away. I'd rather not wade through your verbose, meaningless rambles.", hopefully you will embrace my verbose rambles as I like to talk a lot (though Laconic speach never fails to impress me). Another thing that I like is foreign people! Yes, I love you all people-from-a-faraway-land and I want to learn as much about you, as I want to tell you about me and my country. :tem After all, the Greek word for "hospitality" is a compound word: "friend" and "foreigner" :D On another note I like languages and etymology in general, though I only speak English and Greek. However I'm always interested in listening to the stories of say a Japanese or Egyptian or Gaelic word's origins :tem Hmmm, I guess I could go on and write a book given the chance, so let's put a stop here for the time being, unless anyone is interested in asking me anything. To njt I'd like to say I'm also a 2D fighting games fan and mainly user of Venom in GGX or sometimes a teleport abuser with Chipp, though I've never had opponent's good enough to motivate me to become really good. Would love to play against you!
Hmm, hobbies... I write in my diary, watch movies in DVD, play WoW, read various books (mostly novels), lie down like Shikamaru contemplating on anything I've heard recently and takes up space in my mind and these days I've been visiting Wikipedia reading various articles (always ending up lost in the torrent of links and thousands of pages, eyes and neck sore :darn ).
Things I hate? Well, I cannot recall a single morning in my life when I'd hate anything no matter what happened during the previous day... :tem

In the past I was a regular in Audiogalaxy, in the Final Fantasy VII board. I'd visit everyday and have long conversations and RP with everyone. Later on I could never adapt to any forum, could never make friends anywhere, so I ended up leaving soon after. In AG I still go sometimes, hopefully this place along with NF will be my new internet home.
Be seeing you around all :tem

Welcome, conan. Fan of Conan the Barbarian, or Conan O'Brien, by the way?

January 08, 2006, 10:40 PM
haha. this should have been my first post but guess it not, instead my tenth. anywho, onward~:

i am 18, currently attending CSUFresno first semester *on my winter break*, going into my second on the 18th of this month and currently going into a business major, unsure as to what branch of business but its business. prefer not to capitalize every single opening letter of each single... well rarely. I enjoy nice long walk on the beach, lying against the green crisp grass staring at the clouds and wondering of ways i can further enhance the way of life.

but seriously, i enjoy using photoshop to make signature and avatar but suddenly losing my creatively and just doing mindless bah~ with them. my favorite/hobbies things to do create my own slow songs on my acoustic guitar, read mangas *currently reading FMA , Berserk, and Naruto*, play games on the computer. I like to sit back and enjoy listening to music. music is one thing i can not live without or work without. without music, i tend to think... ALOT, so music ease that away. :amuse

my interest is in having fun because as a child, i was never able to have fun. i was treated as an adult but now that i am in college, im living it as my childhood days. other than that, im interesting in finding the right person *which is normal for everone. no?*

i currently dont have a dream of my own; just living each day as it is.

what i like in no particular order:

expressmen wears
hanging out

what i hate in no particular order:

people who pretends they dont know you

favorite naruto characters in particular order:

Neji :kaiten
Lee :leepose
Gaara :sandspin
Ten-Ten :crying no ten-ten icon
Itachi :Itachi

i think thats it... lol. i THINK

January 08, 2006, 10:59 PM
Welcome to the forums Calibur. That's some good info on yourself. :thumbs and i like your avatar!~ Continue enjoying posting around here.

January 09, 2006, 01:47 AM
thanks for the welcome GK.
by the way my name refers to another conan.
its an old anime in the late 70s that was dubbed in the early nineties to my language .
its called future boy conan.
eventhough its old its has lots of comedy action and emotion.

January 09, 2006, 09:37 AM
hello everybody i'm chapel(i took my nickname from trigun:nicolas d. wolfwood) i'm an italian boy. i'm 17 and i'm a sudent.
i play the bass and my dream is play the bass with my friends in some pub.
my interests are have a lot of fun.
i like hard rock music,anime and manga.
the thing i hate most is latin:i'm hopeless in it

conan is talking about future boy conan:an old (master) miyazaki's anime.one of hte first with him as director.the story is taken from alexander's key book the incredible tide

EDIT:can anybody tell me how to put the avatar?i'm very newbye :darn

January 09, 2006, 01:40 PM
Okay, this is what you do.

If you see in the left hand side, there's something which says 'Personal Menu', and below are links. Click on the Personal CP one.

Then on the left, you'll see more links. Below 'Modify Profile' there's a link which says 'Forum Profile Information'. Go and click that.

Here's where you edit your profile. Personalised Picture is not your avy. So don't click on that. Below that is the avatar stuff. You can either link your avatar *if you have the link* or just upload it youself.

If your done, just scroll down and click on the 'Chage Profile' button.

Hope you understood that. And if you still have anymore questions, feel free to pm any of the staff or me. ^_^

January 09, 2006, 02:33 PM
welcome chapel.
thanks for explaining who conan is.
man i love nicholas wolfwood too, that huge machine gun he had was no joke, and he always smokes just like asuma.
trigun is soo cool.

Welcome Calibur and Chapel!

Conan, now that I think about it I'm surprised I also didn't wonder if you took your name from another anime called Conan the Detective. Lots of Conans out there it seems. Anyway, that's cool. ^_^

Well, I'm going to sticky this thread since General Discussion is starting to get a little crowded.

January 10, 2006, 03:38 PM

Ohhh....sooo many members...anyways, welcome and enjoy your stay!!

January 17, 2006, 06:27 AM
Well, thought I ought to do this more proper and actually introduce myself. ^_^

Im KaiserRyuujin or Ryuu for short whichever you prefer to make it easy. There is the possibility you have seen my name as just "Ryuujin" or "KaiserRyuujin" at some other little spots and could very well with the area's be me. Never know ;) I am really into photoshop work also more the 3D realm, except I havent made any game models, I just been working on 3D landscape type things. Have a project I am gonna probably restart yet again of my "Hidden Shadow Village" from the fan fiction I am writing "Hidden Shadow Shinobi" :P Also another thing, I do enjoy writing, except my whole writers block when it happens is a doosy and lasts.

Lets see next to my Naruto fandom I am also big fan for the manga Berserk. I wouldnt mind things getting dark in Naruto, but even if it has or will it probably wont really register because of reading Berserk and Hellsing. *shrugs* Go figure.

I also enjoy making anime music videos and even have my own group I created with my brother called "Amatsujin Productions" and works for Vid production obviously but graphic arts and I even have made a business card for it, still need to redo it a bit. Make it more final.

A bit of warning, this nerd-boy has grown a spine and has very strong opinions and well hmm I really should make a little list of key phrases so people could be safe from my inevitable ranting when certain things are said. :P ^^;; Around here though, shouldnt be too worried, I think I can remain calm and uhm ya. Also I have a strong knack for being naturally sarcastic so if thats how my posts may come across well I laugh as you try to figure it out. :P

Lets see that just bout covers it *taps chin* Hmmm. Guess could show the list off of fav characters buuut hmmm naaah, see ya all around! ^_^

But I posted a few pics I did a while ago there is a bleach cover I coloured and some naruto fan pics that I did in MS Paint :P the topcis are in the relevent sections (I think...) so take a looky if you want.

Anyway thanks to everyone that scanlates naruto as it's my main source of naruto goodness as the moment because the anime fillers got too rubbish...so keep up the great work all you translators and scanlator people :D

'elo there everyone.

To keep the introduction as short as possible, I'm Jisinai. I [try] to do weekly translations of the Bleach chapters, which is what you all [probably] care about. I enjoy most of the popular shonen series. I play ice hockey, lacrosse, and chess for sports. I'll pop in now and then. Hope to meet a few people.

Gold Knight
January 21, 2006, 09:34 PM
Hey hey now, Jisinai. We care about getting to know you. ;)

Your translations of Bleach is just icing on the cake. Welcome to the forums!

( P.S. How in the world can you think of chess as a sport? ;P )

January 22, 2006, 10:42 PM

Easy, I get a varsity letter at my high school for playing on the chess team.

It's a competition to be sure, but I still don't see it as a sport. Requires no athleticism. :p

But anyway...

January 23, 2006, 09:42 PM
It's a competition to be sure, but I still don't see it as a sport. Requires no athleticism. :p

But anyway...

Of course it doesn't :amuse I just find it funny that they don't give out letters for real sports like hockey and lacrosse but they do for non-sports like chess. Irony!

Gold Knight
January 25, 2006, 03:27 AM
All depends on the particular competition's popularity, I suppose.

January 27, 2006, 05:39 PM

Well, a noob's gotta start somewhere, so guess this is it.

I've been looking for a nice, friendly Naruto forum for a while now, so hopefully this will be it! I live in London. When I'm not working, I spend all my time either writing, drawing, reading manga, watching anime or hunting for quality Naruto fan art (it's a bit of an obsession).

My dream is to one day publish my own novel (long shot, but ya gotta have dreams). I hate winter. My favourite character in Naruto is Sasuke, followed very closely by Gaara. I also have a penchant for liking the bad guys, so I quite enjoy all of the Akatsuki.

Er...can't think of anything else to say, so that's it! :smile-big

I hate bullies, mean people and vegetables(most vegetables). My dream is to be uh...I dunno yet -_- but I think it probably would have something to do with art. Hobbies would be drawing and walking, I love walks especially walks early in the morning.

My favourite Naruto characters are: Sasuke, Sai, Neiji and Itachi. :P

Might as well introduce myself while waiting for a complete translation of ch. 293 even though I'm not good with introductions. At least it's better than refreshing pages :tem

Hello! I'm Ayah. I am a 20 year old Psychology major from the Philippines. I started watching Naruto around April 2004, thanks to my cousins who lent me their copy of the first 30+ episodes (up to the 2nd part of the Chuunin Exam). I began reading the manga last year and I'm enjoying the timejump arcs.

I like purple (as if the font color isn't a clue), anime, manga (who doesn't like anime and/or manga in this forums?), and RPGs whether they are console RPGs or MMORPGs. Too bad that the only console we have at the moment is a PS2. I've also toned done my time spent playing so that I could concentrate on my studies. As for my other likes and dislikes, I'll pass for the time being. The same goes with dreams, etc. This does not mean I have no dislikes nor am I lacking an ambition at the moment. I... don't feel like elaborating.

I guess that's it for now. Looks like there's a translation already of all the pages.

February 02, 2006, 05:24 PM

Hello all:

I am OniSpike. I am 16 and I live in New York. I am a cascusian male, six foot eight and I am on my school basketball team.

My favorite animes are Cowboy Bebop, Gundam, Bleach, One Piece, Naruto, Yu Yu Hakusho, Cromartie High and Gantz. There are a lot of others but, the list might be a bit too long. My favorite mangas are the animes, I listed above. I like both the animes/mangas.

I am a bit behind in Bleach because I spent some time finishing up; Monster, Slam Dunk and working on Berserk. I do watch the Naruto dub, while watching subs and reading the manga. I think the dub team did a decent job and I was suprised how good it did, at least its better than the One Piece dub. My favorite characters in Naruto are Naruto, Kakashi, Sasuke, Shikamaru, Kisame, Itachi, Gai, Rock Lee and a lot of others.

My like a lot of video games, I have a big taste in different genres of games. I am currently playing the new Devil may Cry 3 expansion and enjoying it. I just finished God of War, Call of Duty 2, Budokai: Tenchakai, Half-Life 2 and Yu Yu Hakusho: Dark Tournament.

I am exicited to be part of the forums here on NarutoFan. I hope to befriend some users, lose my social life, gain some respect and enjoy a long long stay here.

February 05, 2006, 10:33 PM
