You are some sort of alternate universe me. It's sort of really creepy. But I <3 S.U./Russian History too! I'll be in St. Petersburg University next summer for three months molesting the campus and city with my horrid Russian.

Obviously you must be one happenin' chica of awesomeness. :-D

SO lucky.. I've been to Russia only once for personalesque reasons but sadly didn't have too much time to mosey around ;___;  Get super psyched out though.. Russia is the type of country that can tgotally absorb you: there's just so much to see, do and take in!

What's your name, pal:  Justin "Jay" Sneed

What do you do for the $$$: In the future, I'm hopping to become a comic book artist/ story-writer

Where do you live:  Sweet Home Birmingham, Alabama

Any pets: 1 Cat or 1 Tiger (That's his name)

The one thing you like most : Drawing and hanging out with friends.

The one thing you dislike most:  Boredom.

Fav Lupin anything? The anime series/movies and manga series. Mostly any thing made by Monkey Punch (including Mankatsu, Cinderella Buy, Alice, etc.)   

Other anime you got the jones for: Hellsing, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, and anything that tickles my fancy (involving action/adventure, slapstick, romance, good plots, pulp styled, etc.).

Thing you hate about anime: Sometimes the fans or the knockoffs or cliche story plots (monsters trapped in something, anime stereotypes, and other over used ideas or plots like that. ). 

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: I draw a lot of anime on my spare time (or if I got nothing to do). I read a lot of mangas, pulps, short stories, novels, and comics. Mostly anything with dark humor/slapstick, horror, action/adventure, history, steampunk/cyberpunk, gothic, fantasy, SciFi, etc.)

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: Drawing, writing stories, hanging out with friends, playing pranks, or playing on Xbox 360 or PS3. Anything to keep my naughty hands busy.

Gender: A Dude... DUH.  ;D

Sexual orientation: Straight as a one dollar bill. *Wolf Whistle* 

Allergies: Milk... sorta

Anything else you'd like to mention: I am a huge Lupin III fan. I have seen almost every Lupin III (except eps 133-154 of Red Jacket) anime episodes, movies, and TV specials. I have a full collection of Lupin III first manga. I'm working on collection MP manga works. I love to draw and write stories dark humor/slapstick comedy and action/adventure themed about a crazed, cartoony, superhero/vigilante who happens a half-human/ half-demon. There mostly in anime/manga styled.  8) I am hoping to come up with more ideas for manga series and stories. I'm a bit of a Groucho Marx (wiseass with a heart of gold)::). In other words i'm a teenage eccentric artist bookworm prankster lookin' for love...  :D

Sweet or Sour:  Maybe Both...

It's coming good so far. I was thinking about making new characters inspired by the Marx Brothers, Three Stooges, and Laurel and Hardy. It is a cartoonish dark humor/slapstick manga and series of short stories. I was thinking should it be set in a High School, College, or should they just be "Knuckleheads" looking for jobs but finding trouble instead. I was trying make it seem if it is a live action cartoon with dark humor/slapstick  anime style sorta like Hudson Hawk, Lupin III live action film, Three Stooges, Laurel and Hardy, Jerry Lewis, and most Marx Brother films, etc...

I was thinking an investigation story into which one of them is the father of a case brought against them in which the mother says all three of them are the father.

lots of ecchi gags of course and Buster keaton styled slapstick too

Cool. Sounds interesting a slapstick story. Making it a tribute to Three Stooges Shorts- Disorder In The Court, Gypped At Daisy's Penthouse, Woman Haters, and maybe He Cooked His Goose- and Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd's slapstick styles. Anymore...?

Good idea. A mistaken identity slapstick story, Wiseguys witness a murder, assassins and hitmen are hired to kill Wiseguys, but traps backfire, or a Wiseguy noir-detective story. These ideas come to mind. Thanx, Nate

What's your name, you beautiful thing: Samantha

What do you do for the $$$: Working for an animation studio

Where do you live: The cold country, yet beautiful Canada

Any pets: 2 cats and a dog. I love cats.

The one thing you like most: Animated Movies whether Japanese or English, hiking and camping

The one thing you dislike most:  Girls caking on makeup.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: sexy and cool Lupin the Third

Other anime you got the jones for: Studio Ghibli, Cowboy Bebop Lucky Star, Baccano!

Thing you hate about anime: Yaoi and Yuri, it just turns me right off.

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: Musical Theatre and singing Japanese songs such as  Fire Treasure, Chanto Iwanakya Aisanai to my hearts desire

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: hiking, Drawing, watching countless anime series and musical theatre

Gender: Female

Sexual orientation: Straight

Allergies: nope..

Anything else you'd like to mention: Working and experiencing the animation industry as an illustrator or animator. I also would love to listen to Yuji Ohno in Japan in a bar LIVE at least once. - I have seen him twice actually !!!! So awesome!! I'm a good athlete and throughout the years I've been asked to do sports or if I've done sports, the thing is. I hate sports, my personality doesn't match sports at all. I actually really like tennis though.... I prefer to draw for hours listening to Yuji Ohno or Joe Hisaishi than competing against others kicking a ball around.

Sweet or Sour: I prefer sweet. Unless we are talking about Grapefruit and Oranges.

I just want to meet at least one person in real life who loves Lupin just as much as I do. I'm in Japan right now and I still haven't found a single person who is a fan of Lupin III.
Lots of people in Japan were surprised that I am a big fan of Lupin III, because I seem like the shy type on the outside and I enjoy watching Studio Ghibli's works but I secretly yearn for slick cool and sexy Lupin III and James Bond action.

I just want to meet at least one person in real life who loves Lupin just as much as I do. I'm in Japan right now and I still haven't found a single person who is a fan of Lupin III.

Don't sweat it too much. I "fell in love" with "Lupin" in my high school days. We had a Japanese exchange student and he didn't think Lupin was anything that special (he wouldn't even finish watching "Babylon" because Marciano's voice actor was "too gay"). I was interested in a couple anime fan-girls in those days also, and neither of them could've cared less about Lupin, even after seeing "Cagliostro," which is so VERY awesome.

Over time, I grew to accept that Lupin wasn't the be-all, end-all of anime, and have expanded my interests a bit, perhaps losing my passion entirely for the franchise on the whole, even. However, my lack of interest doesn't suddenly make other anime valid. Most anime is bad, packed with boring-as-dirt dialogue, poisonous non-endings, and maybe some pretty pictures of cute girls here and there. Some Lupin is also quite bad, but thankfully not all of it. It sometimes tries to pull the "dialogue-heavy" trick but it's not so easy with Lupin: it's usually easily seen for what it is, like a lot of the final scenes in "Angel's Tactics."

In all honesty, I did have a friend who liked Lupin, but he mostly just liked "Cagliostro." We grew up in Jr. High and High School together and lived very close by each other, so we spent a lot of time at each other's houses. Probably our greatest collaborative discovery in anime was Miyazaki. I read about Disney's licensing coup in an issue of Wizard magazine at his house (I think I have his old copy of that issue somewhere around here). When I learned "Kiki" had come out on VHS, I combed the town trying to find it, but no store had it. I think half the stores I called thought I was looking for a pornographic film ("Kiki's Delivery Service? HMMMM...let me check on that one...").  When I spotted it on a pellet at Costco, I snagged it immediately and watched it multiple times with my friend. I wanted to see more of the guy's movies. I was at semi-local video chain Hastings and spotted "Castle of Cagliostro" and saw Miyazaki credited on the back. I hesitated, knowing it was an older film, but my friend and I watched it probably a bazillion times together, renting it over and over, watching a pirated copy, watching the Manga DVD, watching the Japanese DVD with older dub....yeah, we watched the crap outta that one. If we had nothing else to do when we hung out, it was watch "Cagliostro."

The last time I saw him, before he died of cancer caused by self-neglect, I gave him a DVD copy of "First Contact" to watch in his hospital bed. I don't know if he enjoyed it (I don't even remember if he'd seen it before then), or even listened to my crappy commentary, but I doubt he enjoyed the movie as much as we had thoroughly enjoyed "Cagliostro" together so many times before.

So, long story short: don't try so hard to make "Lupin" friends cause they'll never love it as much as you do and you'll probably outlive them anyway. All dark humor aside, you'll want to find something else to have in common with your friends besides a specific show. My friend and I almost never hung out for a good five years because the things we had in common kept disappearing (living near by, same religion, shared media interests, etc.). So, if you have friends but none of them "get" Lupin, that's okay. At least you still get a friend out of the deal, right?

What's your name, pal:
Renee

What do you do for the $$$:
Currently I'm working at Chipotle Mexican Grill, but I also do some freelance graphic design and illustration.

Where do you live:
Sunny Florida

Any pets:
Sadly, none at the moment.  I love dogs and cats, though.  I seriously have no preference.  I also really love fancy rats - affectionate little buggers.

The one thing you like most:
Family, cool weather, good food, music.

The one thing you dislike most:
Crowds.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing:
oh man it's really hard to pick one thing.  I think overall, I'd just say the characters themselves.  They're all a ton of fun and play off of each quite nicely.  Even in specials/episodes I wasn't particularly fond of, there were still moments I liked and that made me laugh, just because those little interactions were so nicely written.  Also, in general I'm typically drawn to really flawed, outlaw type characters.  This show was made for me, I swear.

Other anime you got the jones for:
Cowboy Bebop is a great show.  Also I love just about anything Miyazaki.  Other than that, Lupin is really the only anime I ever really got into.  Though I've seen a bit of Tiger and Bunny and it's caught my interest - haven't finished it yet though.

Thing you hate about anime:
I really can't put my finger on it.. but I've never been a huge fan of anime in general. 
I will say some of the fans I've met in real life are insane, and that has made me a bit weary of watching it for a long time.  XD 

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank:
I love music.  All types of music.  I like just being able to relax and listen to a good song - it helps to motivate and inspire me.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be:
Drawing, sculpting, watching old movies

Gender:
Female

Sexual orientation:
Straight

Allergies:
None that I'm aware of.  I used to be alergic to a lot of things - cats, tomatoes, silver jewelry.. but I guess I outgrew them?  Don't really know how that works. 

Anything else you'd like to mention:
Um.  Yuji Ohno is boss, and is probably what got me initially interested in the Lupin franchise.  I feel he needs to be mentioned somewhere in this rambling. 

Sweet or Sour:
Sweet and sour chicken  :P
