Title: Who are you, Guy? or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Some ???'s
Post by: Geist_MD on August 08, 2009, 12:43:44 pm
Well, in the spirit of This Thread (http://www.lupinthethird.net/forums/index.php?topic=922.0), I decided to post another. If nothing else, that thread is a fine read, and good info on some of the cooliest players here at LtT.net. So here's another in the new board, with a little more in-depth topic span.

What's your name, pal: Michael Davis, the Sausage King of Chicago.

What do you do for the $$$: Doctor for the Recently Deceased. Bustin' may make you feel good, but it puts food on my table.

Where do you live: West Coast, Shmest Coast. East is where it's at, buddy.

Any pets: Two, and they're both un-freaking-ruly, I tell you what.

The one thing you like most: My girlfriend, appropriately titled Dr. Girlfriend!

The one thing you dislike most: Muggy weather really makes an old injury I got in a car wreck ache like nobody's business.


Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Character designs. Gunman, samurai, femme fatale, trickster. You can change their motives, their backstories, their jacket color but those designs are iconic.

Other anime you got the jones for: Cowboy Bebop, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Akira, Gunsmith Cats

Thing you hate about anime: The fans. The everloving, deluded, sometimes creepy fans. Ever seen someone make out with a blowup doll of Konata? I have.


Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: I don't have a lot of freetime, actually, but I try to squeeze in a book here or there. I also watch a lot of television, because it kind of raised me. It's strange, I feel weird if it's not on.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: Baseball. I used to pitch when I was young, and it's something I've always wanted to get back into. It's funny that I never did pursue it, but maybe when I've got a couple of kids I can shape them in my likeness show them a thing or two. If they're girls, man will they hate me when they grow up.

Gender: M to email. That spells, uh, Meail? Yeah. ....Yeah.

Sexual orientation: Straight, provided this doesn't interfere with liking superheros a lot. Wait, it does? Uh. Well, I've got comic books to burn, brb.

Allergies: YOU'RE FACE, PAL! Well, actually, I'm allergic to cotton. I don't know how this works, even though I've been to a buttload of dermatologists and done some research myself {hint}, but I break out in hives if I wear it. At one point I thought it might be some weird childhood thing, like it was in my head, and I even conned the previously mentioned Dr. GF into buying me some clothes of random material then trying them on without knowing what was on them, but sure enough my skin blewed up when I wore the cotton shirt for an hour. Not my brightest idea.


Anything else you'd like to mention: I came to LtT.net through knowing Reed prior to my being on-board as mod and intern, and I get paid nothin'. But he's a fun guy, and it's a blast being with these dudes {and dudettes!}, and in the roleplay we've got going on. Lupin seems to call out to me for some reason, whether it's in print or on a screen, and I love both the fandom and the fiction dang near to death. It's also an interest I've managed to hold on to for a long while, which isn't usual for me. Hopefully when my personal ten-year mark of fandom comes up, I'll still be as passionate about it!

Sweet or Sour: We have a thread on this! I'm on to your game, mister! No one pulls a fast one on ol' Feisty Geisty!

http://blightedmetal.deviantart.com (http://blightedmetal.deviantart.com)

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: I'm sure I'd latch onto something else, if not that I'm a very loyal and content fan of what I love now. But I usually just chill with friends in the style of jack kerouac

Gender: chick

Sexual orientation: I'd date Lupin if he were real.

Allergies: None. I'm boring I suppose.

Anything else you'd like to mention: I had a very short stint in the USAF after high school and it didn't work out. I was young and stupid and missed my boyfriend back at home and left for him only to be dumped two years later. Oh well. We live and learn. I came home and was depressed and a bum for around a year and finally went back to school and got an associate in business admin. Now I'm currently working on a bachelors in something completely useless like art but I'd rather pursue something I love than something for the sake of practicality and a good paycheck. I'm probably crazy because of this.

Sweet or Sour:
sour cream and onion

Title: Re: Who are you, Guy? or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Some ???'s
Post by: Fujiko Lover on September 01, 2009, 08:52:15 pm
Okay, I'll do this...

What's your name, pal: Matt

What do you do for the $$$: Construction Insurance.  The most exciting field in the world.

Where do you live: California Bay Area.

Any pets: No, but I grew up with two dogs (one of which still lives with my parents), and I want to get one for myself eventually.

The one thing you like most: Hmm... the room I call my "Library."  Because it's full of other things that I like!

The one thing you dislike most: Annoying people.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Yuji Ohno! (You thought I'd say Fujiko, didn't you?  Well, my forum name is a red herring!)

Other anime you got the jones for: The original Mobile Suit Gundam (and some of its spin-offs), Dragonball & Dragonball Z (but not GTNever GT!!), Cowboy Bebop, The Big-O.  And of course, the anime "gateway drug," Robotech!  There are others I like, but those are my all-time favorites.

Thing you hate about anime: The ridiculous character designs that have worked their way into nearly every show these days.  What happened to the "big eyes but still basically human-looking" characters they used to have?!?

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: Anime is actually a very small hobby compared to other stuff.  I'm into Star Trek, Star Wars, and lots of TV shows including Lost, 24, and recently, Mad Men.  I read Marvel Comics (though I haven't enjoyed much of their output for the past several years), and I collect Transformers and G.I. Joe figures, among the occasional other collectible.  I go to the movies a lot, and I like to hang out with my friends.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your pastime be: See above -- reading comics and watching TV all day long!  I'm a big San Francisco Giants fan, too.

Post by: Southern_Belle on September 28, 2009, 09:48:43 am
Better late than never, eh?

What's your name, you sweet southern thing: Susan Jacobs

Cash, check, or plastic?: None currently, still hunting for income.

Place of residence?: Smack dab in the middle of nowhere!

Minions?: A darl'n doberman named Neli.

The one thing you like most: My brand new hammock.

The one thing you dislike most: Boredom, I have to keep busy.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: I'd have to say the music. Funky fun, iconic, the original theme's been remixed so many times but in the end the classic is the best.

Other anime you enjoy: Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, I don't see much really.

Thing you hate about anime: Poor dubbing. It's grating.

Interests and hobbies: Drawing, reading, I used to paint a lot but don't have the scratch for canvas and paints anymore. Maybe after I get a job.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: Track! Ms. Jacob's li'l girl used to run like the wind, believe you me.  Don't quite know where I'd go to jog nowadays, it's more racing other people than on your own. Then again that might be me being competitive.

Gender: Ever met a male southern Belle? I haven't.

Sexual orientation: Girls are nice but I love me some handsome boys.

Allergies: Bees. It hasn't been an issue since the family moved up north but back in Georgia if one got in five feet of me I'd have to run for the door.

Anything else you'd like to mention: I'd like to think I bake some of the best dang pecan pie on this side of the Mississippi, but I don't know for certain.

Sweet or Sour: Spicy!

Post by: mizducky on September 28, 2009, 11:11:44 pm
What's your name, pal: For reals? Ellen. But I've never felt like an "Ellen." I've had the nickname "Ducky" since college; even before the Internet, there were people who only knew me as Ducky and could never remember my so-called "real" name; and I've only cemented that in place by adopting mizducky as my default online handle. Though relatively recently I started using loopy-chan for my Lupin cosplay account on Gaia Online, and it's turned into a whole other alternate persona for me ...

What do you do for the $$$: I am Self (Under)-Employed! ;D I had been doing computer geekery (mainly web content writing/editing and desktop publishing), but as that's dried up in the economic downturn, I've taken to doing Home Caretaker work for elderly clients to support myself through some continuing ed classes at the local community college.

Where do you live: Sunny, Silly Southern California.

Any pets: Alas, none currently, though my current housemate has a cute and amazingly non-annoying little white doggie (I think I've only heard her bark twice since I moved in a month ago). Used to always live with cats. I miss 'em.

The one thing you like most: Learning new stuff. Especially about culture, history, and arts, but just about any new stuff, I love to learn. I was one of those geeky kids who'd sit all day reading the dictionary or the encyclopedia; and today one of my favorite pastimes is to play Wikipedia Free Association. If school weren't so damn expensive, I'd be a perpetual student forever. I'd be the happiest knowledge sponge in the world.

The one thing you dislike the most: Living and/or working in a toxic environment full of psychos. Alas, I've had some really crappy luck in this department ... :P

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Oh god, you really want me to pick just one?!? Crap. Okay, right at this moment the answer is: the relationship between Lupin and Jigen. It's morphed over the years and the different media and the different series and the specials and the movies, but there's always that foxhole-buddy giving-each-other-shit but having-each-other's-back dynamic that I really dig. And the banter is fabulous. I'm a sucker for banter.

Other anime you got the jones for: My four other main favorites: Cowboy Bebop. Trigun. FLCL. Ghost in the Shell (the two movies; though I've only seen a few epsodes of the first GITS TV series, I've loved what I've seen). Others: Anyone ever heard of Vampire Princess Miyu? Loved that. Vampire Hunter D. Saw a couple of episodes of Samurai 7 and thought it was killer. Someone mentioned Akira--yep. Someone else mentioned the Big O--yep too. And I was into Astro Boy back when I was way too young to even know it was from Japan.

Thing you hate about anime: The whole excessively cute adolescent girl character trip. Moe, lolicon, whatever the heck you wanna call it. I have absolutely no interest in cutesy girly stuff, whether it be chick flicks, chick lit, or chick anime. One of the bazillion reasons why I love FLCL -- Haruko is, like, the Bizarro World anti-Cute Grrl, god/ess bless her Rickenbacker-whapping soul. Also one of the reasons I love Fujiko, for that matter--a simpering Clueless Girl she is not. Interestingly, while some pundits insist that Lady Clarisse started the whole moe trip, I have a whole soapbox speech that, especially if you follow the sub rather than the dub script of Cagliostro, you see that Clarisse is a whole lot more than just a hapless little cute thing ... but I digress.  ;D

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: Writing. Theatre/acting. Cooking. Asian culture (watashi wa nihongo no gakusei desu). Music (big fan of Frank Zappa and Steely Dan). Online communities. Exploring funky alternative urban culture. Road trips.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: See everything under "what turns my crank."  ;)

Gender: Biologically female. Psychologically a bit on the "butch" side.

Sexual orientation: Leaning hard towards the queer end of the Kinsey scale.

Allergies: PABA sunscreen.

Anything else you'd like to mention: It is interesting to be a geezer in any number of fandoms, online communities, and pastimes where the median age is a good couple of decades younger than my current age (53). But then, I somehow have never conformed to norms of "age-appropriate" activities, no more than I've ever conformed to norms of "gender-appropriate" activities. It's not like I've set out to be a rebel; I just follow my nose, and then look up and realize "oops, I seem to be violating norms again. Oh well ..."  ;D

Sweet or Sour: How about "umami"?  8)

Cash, check, or plastic?:  I’d like all of the above please.  And a lot of them as well.

Place of residence?:  I'm an ex-military brat.  Which means moving is in my genes.  The answer you get today might not be the answer you get tomorrow.

The one thing you like most:  Freedom.

The one thing you dislike most: Pokemon.  Ever seen a 50 year old man in Walmart wearing a Pikachu shirt and yelling out “Pika, Pika, Pika….chu!”?  *shudders*  I have. 

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: All of it.  That’s one thing, isn’t it?

Other anime you enjoy: Cowboy Bebop, Gunsmith Cats, Akira, Battle Angel, Ghost in the Shell, Macross, Patlabor.  The list could go on and on.

Thing you hate about anime: A lot of the fans.  I enjoy anime, I like it but I also have another life!

Interests and hobbies: Writing, drawing, painting, listening to music, reading, working on websites, horseback riding, fishing, cooking.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be:
I’d probably be more into website design. Hmm.  Maybe even a social life?

Gender: Female…I think?  Well, I was when I last checked.

Sexual orientation: Bi-sexual leaning towards straight.

Allergies: Pennicillin, Codiene, Morphene (it’s hell when you’re in pain!), bees, olives (oh the lack on pizzas!) and onions (This is lucky.  It’s poison for cats! And mine try to steal my food.)

Anything else you'd like to mention: Not really. 

Sweet or Sour: Sweet and sour.  Only way to go.  Fits my personality too.

What's your name, pal: Mike Lepore...No, it's NOT French =P

What do you do for the $$$:
I work Part-Time as a Cashier at an A&P (A Grocery Store). Can't really complain. It's an easy job. Just boring as hell, lol.

Where do you live: New Jersey

Any pets: Five. 4 Dogs (A Black Lab, Yellow Lab, Golden Retriever, & Maltese) and 1 cat...IT'S A ZOO!!!

The one thing you like most: THE LOVE OF MY LIFE, MICHELLE!!!

The one thing you dislike most: Anyone who hurts my Michelle.


Fav Lupin anything?: Simply put, the characters. Their personality. The way they interact. Their unique-ness. Everything about them.

Other anime you got the jones for: DragonBall, One Piece, Fruits Basket, & Dr. Slump.

Thing you hate about anime:
Most Online communities. I'm pleased to say that this Message Board is a refreshing exception. But most Anime Forums are full of annoying, egotistical, shit-heads who are just itching for a fight. Seriously, everything has to be a fight and no one respects other peoples opinions. The worst of the worst come out of the wood work simply because the internet is faceless.


Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: Well, this is still sort of related to Anime. But I enjoy making this DragonBall parody series called "Alternate Reality DragonBall Z" that I've been doing since December 2006.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: Well, other Anime and Manga of course. But if I never got into any Anime/Manga period. I guess Sports. I'm a big NFL fan. But I'd likely get into other sports too if I wasn't into Anime/Manga.

Gender: Male.

Sexual orientation: Straight.

Allergies: LOL, strange question. But I guess just your typical Spring Time Allergies. Ya know, pollen and what not. Oh, and I can't eat Raw apples or my lips swell up >_>. Not too bad. It's not dangerous or anything. Just annoying.


Anything else you'd like to mention: I've been a dedicated fan of Lupin for almost 5 years now. I realize that that's nothing compared to guys like Reed and Luis but none the less, just like them I want to do my part to contribute to the Lupin community. I remember when I first became a fan there was a Lupin Forum called "Thieves in Paradise", but that Forum shut down. Luckily, this one popped up shortly after and I found my way to it. Like I mentioned above, I hate most Online Anime communities. But this Forum, and, well, the Lupin Fanbase in general has always been an elite one in my mind. We can have debates without it turning into a Flame War. Which cast someone prefers or which version they watch makes no difference to us. I think we can all agree. Whether you like Yamada, Oliver, Strait, or any other. We're all Lupin fans. So many Fanbases lose sight of that in their silly squabbles over Japanese Vs. English. That is why I say the Lupin Fanbase is elite.

Sweet or Sour: I love Sour things. Especially candy =)

Yeah, but it's the Anime that causes the fighting. Who's stronger? Which Voice is better? Just flame war after flame war over the exact same stuff.

What's your name, pal:
Rhian Evans. No middle name – parents evidently didn’t want to upset the balance of bland.

What do you do for the $$$:
Was gainfully employed for several Hellish years, now a full-time student mooching off the charity of others.

Where do you live:
The land of Dylan Thomas, red dragons, and unpronounceable place-names, aka Wales. Howl of Moving Castle fame was Welsh, y’know. In the book, anyway. Wonder if that’s why they cast Welshie Christian Bale to dub him in the film…huh, never thought of that before.

Any pets:
Two squirrel-obsessive West Highland Whites. I dream of owning an Axolotl. And a pig. And a goat.

The one thing you like most:
The natural world, which clashes a little with my love of shiny things.

The one thing you dislike most:
The idea I should be automatically obsessed with popping out sprogs because I have chesticles.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing:
The characters – they’re a perfect blend.

Other anime you got the jones for:
Lupin III fulfils all my anime needs.

Thing you hate about anime:
Hate’s a strong word, man. Can’t we all just, like, get along?

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank:
Classic horror like Evil Dead II and The Thing –Saw, Hostel and all that ‘gorn’ shite can eff off. Animal welfare and behaviour, insects, red wine, olives, my delightful Other Half (not neccesarily in that order!).

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be:
Gleefully chasing every insect that crossed my path.

Gender:
I’m a lay-dee.

Sexual orientation:
That one condoned by society, a shame as society often pisses me off and I’d like to return the favour.

Allergies:
Pretty hardy, me, though I did hallucinate on antibiotics once. Yowza, that was an experience.

Anything else you'd like to mention:
Did you know Platypus have poisonous spurs?

Sweet or Sour:
Sweet, then sour (raaawr).

What's your name, pal: Andie D.

What do you do for the $$$: Between jobs right now

Where do you live: Back in my hometown, Shawinigan-Sud, QC, Canada

Any pets: Yep, a cat, Nietzsche (the vets all go WTF?)

The one thing you like most: Movies

The one thing you dislike most: Religion

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Jigen, what a babe!

Other anime you got the jones for: Cowboy Bebop, Hellsing, Cromartie High School, Akira (fav animated flick) and many other films

Thing you hate about anime: Cutsyness with no plot and being reduced to things like Pokémon by the non-connaisseurs!

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: Watching movies, drawing and wasting way too much time on the internet!

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: I'd draw a lot more!

Gender: Female the last time I've checked!

Sexual orientation: 90% straight

Allergies: Nothing, luckily!

Anything else you'd like to mention: I love answering stuff!!

Sweet or Sour: Sour I guess, what does that make me? A bitch? ;)

What's your name, pal: Got a thing about keeping my secret identity; just call me BtW. XD (Get it…cuz it’s my username but it also means “By the Way”. HA! I didn’t realize that before!) :D

What do you do for the $$$: Well right now I’m a college student who works hard to clean their parents house and cook the food and make sure to feed the pets in order to keep room and board free as well as my college tuition.

Where do you live: Washington State. West side to be exact.

Any pets: Two. A cat and a dog. The cat is an old Spock/Goemon-like girl who seems to despise the ever-lovin’ heck out of the loud and extremely hyper McCoy/Lupin Toy-Fox Terrier-Puppy. At least they’re not board when the family has to go out for the day.

The one thing you like most: My iPod. My escape into a world in which any song becomes part of the soundtrack to my imagination. Good music means everything and when there’s a good song, don’t bother me, less you interrupt my day-dream and unleash the horror of Venti-Sized proportions.

The one thing you dislike most: Just one? Let me think….Ummm…I tend to dislike the mundane and almost boring life I live. Yes I know I have a good life but don’t you ever wish for something INTERESTING to happen? Just once? :( :-[

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Just one? Seriously? I don’t think I could narrow it down to just one thing.

Other anime you got the jones for: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is good. I also like Digimon (the first and second season; none of that third and forth series junk) and I’m a real Sailor Moon fan. I’ve even got an old Sailor Moon doll that speaks…In ITALIAN! (Yes, I was in Italy when I got it. I lived there.)

Thing you hate about anime:  I’ve actually got two things. The first are the really obsessive fans who dress up like the characters and do horrible jobs impersonating them. Or even worse; wear their costumes in broad daylight to work or school and take really lame obviously posed pictures of themselves. (But a good, not-over-the-top-staged pose is good with me) The second thing is the constant bickering between the Dubs and Subs. In my opinion, we all have an opinion and that’s the way we like it. We shouldn’t have to “conform” to anything we don’t want to. (Sometimes it seriously sounds like the friggin’ Republicans and Democrats arguing about Abortion.  >:(Grumbles) (BTW: Kind of wish we had a Jigen emoticon right now.)

Aside from the ol' Asian pictures, what turns your crank: “Turns Your Crank”, I don’t think I know that phrase but I think it means “What do you like”? Ummm…I don’t really know. I like mystery stories and puzzles. But other than that I can’t say that I have much else. I’ve been an Anime fan since I was three years old.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your pastime be: Writing. I write to escape and place myself in a more interesting and less predictable life. I write for a hobby.

Gender: Don’t you wish these keyboards had one of those little gender symbols sometimes? Female.

Sexual orientation: I don’t really have a preference. I see myself never getting married and having the world at my feet; no kids, no husband or anyone else to tie me down.

Allergies: Not quite sure right now. But when ever spring comes I’m feeling bad and I know it’s not pollen.

Anything else you'd like to mention: Well kind of. I’m a writer by hobby (as said above) but in my spare time I watch Anime. Lately I’ve been searching the internet and trying to find any kind of information on anything Lupin-related. I hope that this site has what I’m looking for. If not, then I’ll have to figure out what to do here…Hmmm…

Sweet or Sour: Sour. Love it!

(If anyone doesn't mind, going to give this a try)

What's your name, pal: Chris (if you are curious about the last name, get to know me better first or pay-up! :p )

What do you do for the $$$: Returned to school recently, already hold a degree. Work part-time for an afterschool program teaching sports & various academic subjects.

Where do you live: Los Angeles, California

Any pets: None. Don't plan to either.

The one thing you like most: Good question...hmm... a woman with a nice smile :)

The one thing you dislike most: Just one? Assholes lol They ruin the fun!

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: The seemingly never-ending adventure.

Thing you hate about anime: Two things. Definitely cosplayers. Never understood the idea and sometimes seeing them wander about randomly for the sake of being "seen" just makes my eyes roll. Second has to be the many that complain about the lack of english subtitles. Many youtube links of anime material almost cannot escape the usual lame comments of "(insert whiny-cry-for-english-subtitles)." Maybe just take the time to learn Japanese? No need for anime to be persecuted for it lol

Aside from the ol' Asian pictures, what turns your crank: I have interest in many things. So a few cranks so to speak. Sports, culture, food, books, vinyl records collecting, coffee shop discussions, and gaming. (I game only on PS3 & PSP)

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your pastime be: CEO of my own company. Working one day a week and traveling several times a year.

Gender: Male

Sexual orientation: Straight.

Allergies: Negative.

Anything else you'd like to mention: Don't be shy. I'm a people person ;D

Sweet or Sour: Sweet :)

What's your name, you beautiful thing: Jordyn Cheslock. I know, it’s a boring name lol.

What do you do for the $$$: Um…well, I’m going to college full-time so my parents are paying for everything. Yes, I’m a spoiled and lucky child, I know.

Where do you live: Washington, the state I've lived in for all of my life. So much rain, not that I'm complaining. In an apartment near the community college I go to. Just a 5-7 minute drive. During the holidays I stay with my family who live 2 hours away.

Any pets: My parents have two cats. They have a calico named Pumpkin and a black cat named Talouse (sp?) Yeah, my little sister named him after one of the cats in Aristocats…who was orange lol. As for me though, I WISH I had a pet at my apartment but alas, I can’t.

The one thing you like most: Other than Lupin III, Jazz music and singing it, definitely. I love Ella Fitzgerald and Armstrong baby!

The one thing you dislike most: Complete and total assholes that are the scum of the earth…yeah.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: The characters and their interactions with one another. Funniness always ensues when the dialogue is written well in Lupin.

Other anime you got the jones for: Cowboy Bebop, Baccano!, Trigun, Hetalia: World Series, and others that I don’t remember right now.

Thing you hate about anime: Fan-girls who make yaoi pairings of characters that aren’t even yaoi to begin with, in my opinion. I don’t mind if the original creator of a series intended them to be together (Gravitation for example), but if it’s made up like SasuNaru (which I see a lot of nowadays) or even LupinxZenigata, I just have little tolerance for. Even characters like EdwardxMustang are put together when they both clearly like women! This goes for Lupin and Zenigata too! It just peeves me a little.

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: RPG’s (I just re-beat Earthbound recently), Pixar movies, cooking(I made tempura recently), japanese (a littel bit), singing, listening to music, and rarely, I read.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your pass-time be: I’d probably get obsessed with something else. I don’t know what it would be, but it would be something hahaha.

Gender: (Looks at chest) Yep, I’m a Woman. (Seriously though, I AM a woman).

Sexual orientation: I’ve never dated anyone but I know I’m Straight.

Allergies: Hmm…my spring allergies (pollen) go off and on depending.

Anything else you'd like to mention: I’m autistic if that matters. I'm happy and content with my existence in this world, even if I'm different from everyone else around me. I'm happy not to fit in :). I tend to remember things like a computer, which comes in handy every now and then. For instance, I’m working on the "Love Theme" from Lupin and I’m singing it in English (aka: Stolen Moments). I’ve worked on it for two days, and I’ve already memorized the lyrics. Now I just need to get a Bass player and a Drummer. I did get a Guitar player and I gave him the sheet music for it. Once I get the other two, we’re gonna rock!
Oh! and remember, Fuzzy Pickles :)

Sweet or Sour: I’m pretty sweet for the most part. However, if you screw with me, I’ll be sour for a little bit, and then turn sweet again...This is how to answer the question right? lol.

Very nice. Appreciating the classics of jazz. I'm a huge jazz fan myself. Ella's voice is timeless.
RPG's too huh? Any other rpg games in particular?

Also noticed how popular Cowboy Bebop is to the faithful here. Another great, great anime.
Glad I found this website!

When it comes to jazz, I'm really digging Yuji Ohno. My autistic-side really likes him right now lol. Not that I don't take the time to listen to other stuff.

As for RPG's, Well Chrono Trigger, I'm just started Mother 3, Oblivion (Both of my brothers broke my Xbox360 version. They are SOO getting me another one for Christmas lol), Dragon Quest VIII (I beat that one too story wise!), Dragon Quest games in general some titles I've missed due to not having a Playstation when I was a kid, Zelda starting with Link's Awakening for the GBC (When I was a kid, I was more of a handheld kind of person until Windwaker, the first console Zelda I beat...so many good memories :)), Fallout 3 (coming from the crowd "never played the others because she was too young" side), Breath of Fire 1 and 2, Golden Sun 1 and 2, and so many others.

When I was 18, I wanted to beat Zelda: Ocarina of Time as my goal before I graduated from high school. And I had never done it before. When I was a kid, the furthest I ever got was the Water Temple (Isn't always the freakin' Water Temple that's the hardest in Zelda games?) so it was a really cool experience to play through areas I had never been in before. To try and take in these characters and places for the first time ever. I feel bittersweet that now, after all these years I could finally do it. I freaked out at Gannon's Castle when the time-limit started, though I did get down my first time. I remember seeing Gannon transform into the very face of evil that comes from nightmares and saying to myself "...holy shit! I better get this right the first time!". When I finally beat the game, kicking the ass of Gannon and seeing that last cutscene, I felt like I completed my childhood in a way, going through the door to adulthood, but never quite shutting it. It was a great experience for me. Brought a lot of nostalgia that I missed out on. I might tell my older brother to play it again, because I completed the game by myself when he had a friend to help him lol.

Sorry that I went off topic lol. Just thought I'd share.

Where do you live: In the strech line that keeps Spain and France separated.

Any pets: One fish. The classical orange fish, btw.

The one thing you like most: Kindness.

The one thing you dislike most: Freddy vs. Jason, ( facepalm ). Its a fact that I like bad movies, but that was... Anyway, if film director James Wong had seen the fight scene between J and Freddy, maybe he could have made a good Dragon Ball live action adaptation ;D

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Great character quality. All of their personalities created an archetype on posterior manga works.

Other anime you got the jones for: Cowboy Bebop, Space Adventure Cobra, City Hunter, Golgo 13, Higurashi No Naku koro Ni, Lucky Star, One Piece, anything related to Haruhi Suzumiya, Steins;Gate ( my favourite ), and etc. etc. etc...

Thing you hate about anime: Too many perversion.

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: Watching films, writting, reading and drawing ^^.

Anything else you'd like to mention:[/b]  Apart from Lupin, I love acting and roleplaying;( I´m playing Anima at the moment, very good role-game btw, I strongly recommend it ). As I mentioned before, I´d like to be a comic artist, so my main hobby is reading all I´ve got access to, and trying to learn as much as I can of all types of artists. Maybe I´m working too hard at that  :-\

Sweet or Sour: Sweet, I think...

Where do you live:   East coast for realz.  Livin in the ocean state!

Any pets: A miniature black panther (bombay cat) who is beyond evil.  He'd give Lupin a run for his money (he's put my car keys down the toilet, stolen $5 bills that never reappeared & will gladly take anything I put down for more than thirty seconds).

Thing you hate about anime:   The fans.  I'm sorry.  Nothing frightens me more than some 40 y/o dude dressing up as a 10 year old girl.  (That and recently, too much moe.)

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank:  I'm rather boring.  I like to read, especially history.  Anything Soviet Union/Russian Revolution or Korean War related, I. Love.  Some TV occasionally.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be:  Fashion and art.  My mother was a fashion designer and I hate myself for not perusing the same.  I also like to play tennis.

Gender: F is for FOXY.

Sexual orientation:  It depends on how gorg the gal is. 

Allergies:   Seasonal and avocado/watermelon/apple makes my throat close.  ...and yet I eat it anyway.

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...

Post by: Lunatic! on July 26, 2011, 05:42:47 pm
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

Other anime you got the jones for: Dragon Ball, Irresponsible Captain Tylor, and anything from Katsuhiro Otomo, Satoshi Kon, Mamoru Oshii, and Rintaro. I also have a soft spot for the English dub of Speed Racer.

Thing you hate about anime: Some of the more extreme, sexist hentai stuff is pretty annoying.

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: American Politics, Japanese Politics

Thing you hate about anime: Moe girls, panty shots and fans who dog an English dub regardless of whether it's good or not.

What's your name, pal: Jonathan, but you can call me John too.  ;D

What do you do for the $$$: I don't do anything yet, but I'm hoping to make money both directing Motion Pictures, doing Voice Acting part-time; and doing some freelance artwork, like title cards and banners and portraits and such.

Where do you live: North-west Georgia, US.

Any pets: 3 cats. They are the sweetest little things in the world. They love and adore us and we them. I will never understand why there is this preconception that dogs are always nice and cats are always lazy jerks who don't care about you.

The one thing you like most: Well, I guess that'd have to be beautiful women. Nothing perverted mind you, but I think the one thing that makes me more happy and content than anything in the entire world is the warm smile of a beautiful woman.

But as for something more conventional, the 2nd thing I love most is beautiful scenery and landscapes like those you find in New Zealand. And my 3rd thing I like most is Smooth Jazz. If you had asked me what is the one thing I couldn't live without, it'd have to be music.

The one thing you dislike most: Annoying people/loud unruly noises.

I have abnormally good hearing, which is one of the reasons why I can pick up on people's voices and vocal manerisms so well to perform my Voice Impressions. But the major draw-back of that is that sounds hurt me a lot more than they do other people, and it's also difficult to hear people in a crowded room full of other talking people. So loud noises and people who scream and holler a lot just for the heck of it really ticks me off; and actually harms me a little.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Well I'm sorry, but I can limit it to one thing, but I can limit it to 2 things, other than "The Castle of Cagliostro."

#1. at the moment, the coolest song for or related to Lupin the 3rd that I have heard to date is the Rap song made by SEAMO (I think). That song is so epically awesome that I swear there should be a super amazing music video made to go along with it, unless there already is. If not, I'd love to make it.

#2. and my 2nd favorite Lupin thing, is my Storyboards for the Castle of Cagliostro. I mean, I found the damn thing at EPCOT Center in Disney world. How could I have ever predicted I would find anything Lupin related there. It's so crazy. :o

Thing you hate about anime: Personally, I don't really hate anything about anime. I don't mind bad voice acting because it's often hilarious to listen to. And I only hate panty shots half the time, especially when the show in question is constantly showing them. But when panty shots are used sparingly, I don't know, I just find it cute and funny. Which is what it was supposed to be.

So I don't really hate much. At least I can't think of anything I hate terribly. Maybe I'll remember it later.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your pastime be: Well frankly my pastime is not Lupin Lupin Lupin, all day every day. Though it does serve a good chunk of my media consumption. I suppose I would be incomplete without "The Castle of Cagliostro," because that is the one movie I can definitively say is my most favorite.

But if I didn't have Lupin or my family weren't in my life, I'd pretty much be dead. I mean why would you even ask me what would I do if my family weren't in my life? I can understand the Lupin part, but who could ever live without their family (at least) during the earlier part of their lives?

I don't know, I guess I can't really answer this question. lol :P

Gender: Male

Sexual orientation: Straight

Allergies: form of Antibiotics

Anything else you'd like to mention: If I have ever come off as stubborn, egocentric, a jerk, or a know-it-all; I humbly apologize for anything I have said that gave you that impression.  :-[

After being on this forum as long as I have, I find it increasingly very annoying that my words can never fully come across the way I'd like them to because I can't actually speak to any of you. I'm really a very pleasant guy to be around. I'm generally quiet in person, and I don't like to get into fights, verbal or physical; but I do enjoy a good discussion or debate. I can also certainly admit when I'm wrong or generally uninformed about something, as you've probably seen. At least when I've been shown that I'm wrong and I learn what's actually right, then I won't be wrong the next time. ;)

So I would just like to say thanks for letting me be part of this forum and for letting me contribute what I have. I want to be a bigger part of the fandom if at all possible in any way I can, and I want to get to know the rest of you more as we continue on through the year and following years. :)



Sincerely,
Jonathan (aka FilmmakerJ) 8)

Well...I realize this thread hasn't been posted in in a while, but since it's stickied and all and seems like a good way to give more info about myself up front, I guess it can't hurt, right?

What's your name, pal: The name's Bond. James Bo - okay, not really. Name's Eric, but you guys can call me Gyt. Not like I go by my real name online a whole lot anyway really. Even friends I've known for years tend to refer to me by 'Gyt' more often than not.

What do you do for the $$$: Currently I work at a hotel. The same hotel I've worked at for the past...oh god, going on six years now. Someone should put me out of my misery (or at least try to. If you're rich, come hit me with your car!)

Where do you live: Arkansas. AKA the land that technology/sophistication forgot. Don't get me wrong, I like some things about the country, but there's a reason I spend way too much time online...

Any pets: At the moment, no. My girlfriend has a bunch though, so whenever we get married I'm gonna be swarmed by da animals.

The one thing you like most: Hmm...it feels like cheating to say my best friend/girlfriend since that's already been answered a few times, but it's true. If I had to pick something else so as not to cop out though...pizza. Mmm. Pizza.

The one thing you dislike most: That's a toughie. Lots of social things like bigotry, racism, etc. really grinds my gears, but if I had to roll all that up into one thing...people that don't let others just live the way they want to, without judging them. That whole 'judgment' mentality I greatly dislike.

Fav Lupin anything? Please limit to one thing: Hmm...the characters, namely their interaction. Even in an episode or a special that I'm not particularly crazy about, I can always count on enjoying the way the core cast interacts with each other and their surroundings. It's not always used to it's greatest effect, but it's always there, and that's what I love about this franchise.

Other anime you got the jones for: Now you're just opening the floodgates. WAAAAAYYYY too many to list outright. Some core favorites off the top of my head though (and this would also be including manga)...Dragon Ball, Yu Yu Hakusho, Fullmetal Alchemist, Rurouni Kenshin, I"s, Video Girl Ai, Zetman (anything by Masakazu Katsura, really), and Digimon.

Thing you hate about anime: The fandom at large can be a pretty ugly thing to behold. If someone's not judging you for liking a dub, they're discrediting you for the show or genre you like to begin with. It's insanity. My only small comfort is the fact that not EVERYONE is like that, and that I've learned from time in some non-anime fandoms that this is just how fandoms are, anime or otherwise.

Aside from the ol' asian pictures, what turns your crank: Entertainment in general, to me entertainment is life, really. If I like a story, I'll take it however I can get it, be it in anime or manga form, or if it's a movie, or a TV show, or a book. I really love to read and write though, and my pipe dream is to eventually finish writing some of my original story ideas and become a published author. Oh, and since this seems like as good a place to mention it as any, my chief fandoms outside of anime and manga would be TMNT and Animorphs.

If Lupin and family/friends weren't in your life, what would your passtime be: ...This probably seems weird to say, but honestly, I think it'd be roughly the same (without Lupin, I mean). I love Lupin, it's one of the 'pillars' of my fandom as it were...but really, it's not like it's changed my life or anything. Given me a few story ideas, but beyond that, I'd still be doing what I'm doing anyway, which is being a nerd into way too many things for my budget to ever let me keep up with it all. If my family/friends weren't in my life though? I'd go mad, especially on the friend's side.

Gender: Last time I checked, I are a dude. Been a bit though, so one sec - ...yup. Still a dude. Not 'The Dude' though. I'm not that cool.

Sexual orientation: Straight, but I'm a big defender of equal rights for everyone.

Allergies: Well, I was allergic to orange juice when I was a kid, and I never really cared for it enough to see if I grew out of that or not. Also used to be lactos intolerant, but that thankfully went away.

Anything else you'd like to mention: Hmm...nothing comes to mind at the moment, I think it's all already been mentioned. Anything else you wanna know, just shoot me a question!

I do many artistic activities and I find myself conflicted between the need to get a diploma and my hobbies.

I like to listen to people's problems and help them when I can.
