Hermie:

I want to see Sai die a terrible death because I hate him, and hopefully see them explore some of the other characters a little more. They could take a cure from the anime fillers and had Naruto, Sakura & Kakashi team up with the other ex-Genins for some badass A-Rank missions & explore their characters a bit more.

GK: I was in Japan for all of last year as a JET. Taylor and I hung out and played video games, it was fun. His daughter's the cutest!

I assume the Simpsons thing was rhetorical. I'm one of those Simpsons trivia freaks who knows like everything about the series ( a while back I wrote a simpsons trivia flash game, it's up on Newgrounds.) ONE of my favorites is the Beer Baron.

Sometimes I think Viz has it easy, because they know what happens so they can avoid controversial stuff like that.

That was single-handedly the most confusing page I have ever read in any Naruto chapter.  I hadn't thought about it in relation to Kabuto at all until now, but yeah, it makes so much more sense now.  Thanks for bringing it up, Yakushi Kabuto.
meh!! it is not you alone. i am glad i read this page. That itsy bit was damn confusing. Most people still think it also means kabuto is a jinchuuriki- well that is how confusing it was.

anyway. hisshou- you are awesome. i thought you were born japanese. wow!! just incredible. i guess i have to double up my japanese learning too. i have stopped lately since i started working and have started forgetting since i do nt get to practice.

What characters would you like to learn more about in particular?

Oh yes, I remember Taylor telling me about meeting you now. Makes sense you were in Japan, then! Do you miss it?

Not really so much a rhetorical question as I kinda sensed you were a big Simpsons fan and thought it would be a fun question for you to ponder ;)

Nova: Thanks!

I'd like to see more of how the characters have evolved since the time skip. What kind of relationship do Sakura and Ino have? Are Shikamaru and Temari friends or flirtatious or what? What's the status of the Hyuuga family? What kind of training has everyone undergone (same goes for Naruto & Sakura)? What will everyones reaction be when they see Naruto in action? What will Naruto's reaction be to all of THEM?

Everyone: You're welcome.

NeoShweaty: JET pays about 30k/year in us dollars. Depending on how you spend you money, you can easily bankroll half of that your first year. Depending on the prefecture you'll get some, none, or all of your rent paid for. It's a sweet deal and a great experience; if you've got nothing really tying you to your home country it's the perfect post-college job. I'll give more detail after UFC is over :D

It's not hard, but you're not a lock just by applying. You need to write a good essay for your application and be honest and enthusiastic about teaching english during the interview. That's the important part; you make them believe that you want to be an ENGLISH teacher and help bridge the culture gap between Japan and your native country. Stuff like, how you love japanese culture and want to create the same kind of interest in your own culture in them. It doesn't necessarily have to be TRUE, but that's the impression you want to give :D

With this, my post count is no longer 69. Sign...

Music! I like hardcore, techno, trance, and the like, though I am known to dabble in a bit of smooth jazz every now and then. But mostly anything with a hard beat. I highly recommend Hardcore Nation volume 2 if you're looking for something new.

What kindsa music do YOU like?

Possibly. It's pretty amazing to see how popular it's become; I was one of those buys back in '93 who was into anime and japan before it was mainstream. For a guy who grew up watching DBZ and Sailor Moon at 6am sunday morning, who pretty much single-handedly got half his high school into anime, seeing so many people contributing translations and wanting to learn still astounds me. I really never thought I'd see the day, let alone find conventions where I could dress up as my favorite characters and get my picture taken XD

GK: Clearly I think Hidan is fucking awesome, and Kakuzu is not far behind. Their interactions are the most entertaining part of Naruto and a lot more fun to watch than Orochimaru/Kabuto, Sasori/Deidara and even Deidara/Toby. As my new sig shows, Hidan's

Open shirt
Gold chain
Slicked-back hair
Religiousness
Short temper, and
bad attitude

point to him being Italian, which I am as well (hereditarily, anyways). The motherfucker's so badass he makes me want to LEARN Italian just because I THINK he MIGHT be Italian. JESUCRISTO!

Haha. He's from the Hidden Village of the Mafia, then? XD

I agree with you fully, though, they are the most entertaining pair in all of Naruto so far. I got a big kick out of the end of Chapter 325!

How many times have you cosplayed? Was it just that one time as Kisame?

(BTW, thanks for the translation, thought I'd say it here.)

I have cosplayed several times: As Kuwabara from YYH, Billy Coen from Resident Evil 0, Kurow from Rival Schools: Project Justice, and most recently as Kisame.

It's so much fun working on the costumes and taking pictures with other people. Everyone who goes to a convention should try it at least once.

What do you think of Raine Joybringer's Sakura cosplaying? ( Pics over here. She's a mod here. )

Why am I the only one asking questions here? Hmm...
