    Wut R U Dooing?

    I am fairly certain my last post here was some kind of "omg, it's been so long!!1" type of deal, and now a few years later here I am again, haha. :) It's awesome to see some names I recognise--Shy, SaiyanPrincessX, James; glad to see you are all doing well. Speaking of the old guard, I can see it's PiroMunkie's birthday as I type this, so Happy Birthday if you ever read this, old chum.   So what am I doing, like, right now? Well, I can tell you I've just been on a massive nostalgia trip trawling through what used to be the Roleplaying & Storytelling forum--So many of our old threads and games are still there, frozen in time, it's surreal. Feels like I'm walking through the empty halls of my old high school or something. (By god, I wish we had finished Maverick Hunters: Personification!)   I won't bore you with the gory details of my sordid past so here's the synopsis--worked for the tax department, got fired for being a daydreamer who did no work and spent all my time writing stories, survived an earthquake, survived another much worse earthquake, got a graphic design qualification, met my long-term girlfriend of four years, got a design job with a big media company, moved around the country, survived ANOTHER earthquake....   And now most recently, my partner and I have moved back to our home city of Christchurch, and have just bought a house together! It's a pretty grown-up thing but I am still very much just a big kid--still playing way too many video games, still watching cartoons and anime (although I just watched Eva Rebuild 3.0!), still getting lost in my own imagination writing short stories and drawing maps and pictures that no-one else is ever likely to see, hehe.   To any other oldies who might stumble across this at some point in the future--Rahia, Rico, TN, Seph, Warwick, Neil, and the many others I've no doubt forgotten... I miss you guys, and I hope you are all doing well.   -Flash

Aha. I'm clever, not) was inspired by a group of fans and cosplayers that I met while I was living in Philiadelphia. Mission To spread Otaku-ism over San Antonio by connecting with the anime clubs in the area and building a strong community! Description The San Antonio Otaku (also known as SAO, which means "Pole" in Japanese; which is why the lady in the background holds a polearm. Aha. I'm clever, not) was inspired by a group of fans and cosplayers that I met while I was living in Philiadelphia. They dress up, go to malls and just generally hang out. I hoped that I could create something like that here in San Antonio. So, join, meet the locals, have some fun! The San Antonio Otaku enjoy numerous gatherings throughout the year. We generally meet about once a month on a formal basis. But we also gather on a much more frequent basis in an informal fashion, just hanging out witha group of members here and there. In addition to our gatherings, The San Antonio Otaku also sponsor trips to Anime conventions taking place in the region. This allows members to enjoy the excitement of going to a convention, part of the highlights of being involved in cosplay. We have a forum. We plan trips and gatherings as well as discuss many issues relating to cosplay and anime in general. We encourage everyone who is interested in learning more about the group, to stop in at our forums, located in the website section.

    What are You Watching/Reading Now?

    I swear, each month it feels like I lose more interest in anime. I mean I have all the series I want on dvd, and I'm pretty much at the point where I don't even care what's on tv (in terms of anime). With that said, though, I've been watching some [b]Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood[/b] for the past couple of days. Or rather, it's been watching me while I sleep. That's not a knock against the series or anything (I just go to sleep with anime on my tv).

    One Piece: Colours Prediction Thread

    I'm importing this idea from another forum I frequent. The idea is to take a picture from the manga of a character that has yet to appear in colour, and paint up a prediction of what colour scheme you think that character will end up having. You can do this in programs such as Photoshop, the Gimp or even MS Paint. This thread is for the manga One Piece but it can work with any of the major weekly manga that get adapted into a TV series or get colour spreads from time to time. It can be fun to see how close or how far away you are with predicting a character's colour scheme. Here are a few of the predictions I have made so far: [img]http://img804.imageshack.us/img804/3565/threeeue.jpg[/img] As yet unnamed three-eye girl from Big Mom's crew [img]http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/899/pekoms.jpg[/img] Pekoms from Big Mom's crew [img]http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/1418/punkhazard.jpg[/img] Punk Hazard island colour scheme prediction [img]http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/4450/dragonprediction.jpg[/img] "Punk Hazard Dragon" and Straw Hat clothing
