[font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Name[/b]: Osamu Kazuhiro [b]Age[/b]: 18 [b]Gender[/b]: Male[/size][/font][/size][/font] [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Arcana[/b]: Justice [b]Appearance[/b]: Osamu stands at 5'7, weighing exactly 160 lbs, though some of that weight is muscle obtained through various workouts for kendo.[/size][/font][/size][/font][size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif] He keeps his dark brown hair cut short- not quite to the point where he is bald, but just enough so that it wont be a hindrance. This leaves nothing to conceal his blue eyes. He is supposed to wear glasses, but he hardly ever wears them.[/font][/size] [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Personality[/b]: Osamu is a focused and very serious person. He has little patience for any sort of foolishness or jokes while there is work to be done, which has earned him either the respect or hatred of others- though that is usually all. [/size][/font][/size][/font] [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Bio[/b]: [/size][/font][/size][/font][size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Born and raised in Yokuboshi, Osamu is the youngest of two sons...or perhaps [i]was [/i]the youngest would be more accurate, because now he is the only child. His older brother was killed ten years ago in what appeared to be a gang fight, as his body was found alongside several others who were around the same age. Osamu believes that this is not the case- Masao was not one for gangs. Despite his vocal objections to this idea, people shrugged him off. [/font][/size] [size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Osamu then began heavily focusing on his school work and eventually joining the school's kendo team once he was old enough, mostly in an attempt to distract himself from everything going on at home and within himself. He was often offered pretigious positions in school, such as membership on the student council or captain of the kendo team, but he refused them all- such things were simply of no interest to him. However, he is seeking to further his education in America. [/font][/size] [font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3]He also secretly pours over any document he can get his hands on relating to his brother's death, or anything similar to it. Needless to say, the recent incidents have been of great interest to him...[/size][/font] [font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif][size=5][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=3][b]Nickname[/b]: People have called him Sam since the day he was born. It sort of stuck.[/size][/font][/size][/font]
  3. BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH @_@ No, this is not dead, and neither am I. I apologize for the lack of...anything, but that'll be changing soon. I plan to have a post up before Saturday, so hopefully we can get this thing moving again soon.
  4. One would think a somewhat uncommon Pokemon would be easy enough to find. Not the case with Sawk, apparently.

      Depends on which version of the game you've got.

  5. Gaming

    Working on [b]Pokemon White [/b]in an attempt to finish it before B2/W2 comes out. This is likely not going to happen, considering all the grinding I do and that I'm trying to get specific Pokemon before really doing anything in the game (only need a Rufflet at this point). I'm still gonna try, though ._.
  6. Gaming

    The scans have been translated. Details [URL=http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/May_issue_of_CoroCoro_magazine_leaked]here[/URL] due to length. I'm curious about some of the changes to Unova, particularly the craters in Driftveil and the lack of a lighthouse. I'm getting a feeling that a lot of stuff has gone down in the two years since the original games. And there's the ice covering the region, but it hasn't been confirmed if that's just to hide things for now or if it's actually part of the game. I'm also glad that they're finally including some older Pokemon, and I'm hoping that Houndour/Houndoom is included >_> The professor in this game is researching Pokemon strength, which the rival is also apparently interested in (and I lol'd at "From now, I'm going to rage!"). Reading around, some people seem to find him a bit...menacing. Perhaps the professor will be the villain this time around? ANDANDAND. We're starting in a city this time around, not a town. Should be interesting. Although I'm wondering- why do they really need Trainer Schools? I mean, I understand that they're there to help [S]people who don't read the manual[/S] new players, but taking a realistic view, WHY is that necessary? One would think a few types and status ailments wouldn't take so long to drill into some kids heads o-o As for the player characters, I don't really hate them, but they're not OMFGAMAZING to me, either. I am curious as to what they'll be named when it comes to naming them based on their versions. They can't exactly be named Black and White, so maybe something related to electricity and fire in reference to Black/White Kyurem?
  7. [s]Yay thread resurrection[/s] [center][img]http://pokebeach.com/news/0212/pokemon-black-white-2.gif[/img][/center] Yes, Black 2 and White 2. Not Grey. Not a single, enhanced version, like we've got in past generations. Black [b]2[/b] and White [b]2[/b]. Not many details are known about the game at this time, aside from the two mascots for each version- Black Kyurem and White Kyurem (different forms of Kyurem, in case you couldn't tell). Some new scans have recently surfaced and are apparently legit- behold the [url="http://www.dotup.org/uploda/www.dotup.org2855392.jpg"]main characters and rival[/url]. The girl with a guitar is apparently a Gym leader. No details on the others shown yet. There's also some random bits [url="http://www.dotup.org/uploda/www.dotup.org2855389.jpg"]here[/url]. If I had to take a guess, I'd say either Unova has changed drastically or we didn't see all of it in the original B/W. The games will be released in Japan this summer, and the U.S. and Europe this Fall. So, uh. Thoughts? Hate? Love? RAEG?
  8. Exactly like that, yes. Annnnd posted. GO GO GO EDIT: For those who have characters in school, keep in mind that today(April 6th) is the start of a new school year. YAY JAPANESE SCHOOLS In case you're not sure what to do, just have your character go about their usual routine- go to school/work, the usual. There will be a speech for the first day of school, so keep that in mind. Also, no one has heard about the murders yet, and everyone had the same dream about Philemon (see the Audition thread/Compendium). Yeah, this is going to be a tad complicated at first. And for this reason I want to emphasize communication- post here often with your questions, message me if need be, stuff like that. I want to keep this as unchaotic as possible.
  9. RPG

    [i]April 6, 2015[/i] [i]Port District[/i] The sun would soon rise over the city of Yokuboshi, signaling the start of a new day. Soon, the streets would explode with people getting off and going to work, and kids going to school. All unaware that there had been several murders during the night. He didn't know how it happened. He had simply been with the gang, hanging out in their usual place, one of the warehouses in the Port. They had been going about their usual routine, loudly making jokes, smoking, popping back a few beers, the usual gang stuff. Then he had fallen asleep... He didn't remember what he dreamed, but he knew someone had been in it...no, not someone, [i]something[/i]. The thing appeared and killed the entire gang. And for some reason, this had pleased him. He felt liberated- they had always looked down upon him, treated him like crap. Now he had finally gotten back at them, and they would never treat him like that again. Ever. But of course it was all a dream- nothing but an illusion. Once he woke up, the gang would be alive, maybe even put him down further for falling asleep. [i]But what if they really died?[/i] [i]What if he made it happen?[/i] When he awoke, he was greeted by a horrible sight. A glorious, horrible sight. The bodies of everyone who had been in the gang lay strewn about the warehouse, limp and bloody. And very much dead. He felt his heart begin to race. This...this was bad. They were all dead. All of them. And he might be next...unless, of course, he had been the one to kill them all. He finally noticed a sort of humming sound just behind him. He quickly turned around, falling over and landing unceremoniously on his rear end when he saw the source of the sound. It was the thing from his dream. Now that he got a god look at it, the thing was absolutely hideous. There was simply no other way to describe it. This hideous thing had killed everyone. And now it was about to come for him...no, wait. It felt oddly familiar, as if he knew it... He then began to laugh, at first a low and steady chuckle, then a loud, uncontrollable cackle as the thing disappeared. He continued laughing, not even bothering to look around at his former â??friendsâ?. Who cared about them? They were dead, and he had killed them. When the police found him later that morning, he was curled up in a ball on the floor, still laughing and only managing to occasionally say, â??Shadows...Shadows, the true self...â? Meanwhile, everyone in the city went about their business, unaware of the odd happening in the warehouse. Some had long since been awake, already on their way to work. Others were just now waking up, attempting to get fully awake and recovering from what had been a good night's sleep. A select few, however, had not slept that well...
  10. I might allow weapons eventually. I just feel it would get to chaotic if I did allow it, and I don't want everyone focusing on them and not using their Personas- they're there for a reason, and it's not as a means of last resort protection. The things the characters will be facing wont typically be things they can simply beat down. There's also the fact that the Persona and user are directly connected- if the Persona takes a hit, the user feels it, and vice versa. With that in mind, if a character charged into battle along with their Persona, the two would likely end up getting in each other's way. Anyway, working on the opening post now. Should be up in the next few hours. And on another interestingly random note, it occurred to me yesterday while I was taking a test in Psychology, I realized that the chapter we had been covering was based on the whole unconscious thoughts and desires thing. Gee, I wonder where I got my inspiration from (even if unconsciously)? :P
  11. Go go Gadget DOUBLE POST! Alright, so I'm thinking of getting this party started on Wednesday. For those who haven't filled out a character sheet yet, I'm not closing sign-ups, so there's no need to rush.
  12. Toonami. Enough said.

      I thought that was an April Fool's joke.

      It was the best April Fools joke EVER.

  13. For another general note, there isn't any particular deadline for sign-ups. I'm just waiting until we get a decent number of people so that we can start, and sign-ups will remain open even after the RP itself starts, unless we get a sudden burst of people in and fill up all the slots.
  14. A few things- First off, I don't mind people playing as foreign characters. That's perfectly fine. However, I feel the need to emphasize that this DOES take place in Japan. A few foreigners here and there are okay, but let's try to keep the ratio of Japanese and foreign characters reasonable. Also, [b]ExcelExcel[/b]- I'd like to point out that a 6'7 female weighing 140 lbs is considered to be unhealthily underweight for a 17 year old, and while there ARE people like that, there generally tends to be a reason- drug use, anorexia, etc. Of course, given the nature of the RP, it could very well be because of one of those reasons, and if that's the case, that's fine. But if not, you might want to consider editing either the age, height, or weight so that they all match up better.
  15. Anime

    [color=#ff0000]Finished up [b]Persona 4: The Animation[/b] today. Sort of. Apparently, they're releasing a Directors Cut of the 'final' episode and a new episode that will cover the True Ending. BUT ANYWAY. The entire series was pretty good, given that it was a video game adaptation, although it had it's rushed moments. And let's not forget the...er...animation...errors (Defaces, double Chies, etc) It's going to be weird, not having anything to look forward to watching on a weekly basis, at least until Fate/Zero 2 starts. I'm probably going to focus on [b]Tiger and Bunny [/b]in the meantime, maybe finally get around to finishing some other series I've been neglecting. I dunno, I might even pick up [b]Bleach [/b]again, for teh lulz.[/color]
