Hotel and Facilities / Re: Fanime 2013 Roommate thread
« on: April 28, 2013, 12:34:12 AM »
In need of a room.

+ Introduction:

My name is Jaana Humlie and I am registered as Staff at fanime con in the video rooms.

I also have a friend named Antonio Tambornino who is also on staff. I live in the El Cerito area and my friend lives in Walnut Creek, so I we are in great need of a room at a hotel.

+ Hotel Information:
Antonio and I have a morning shift on Friday from 9-12 and another at 7-11. So I would like to stay at the Marriott, if possible.
Marriott (adjacent to convention, most of the video rooms are at).

I can also accept the Hyatt or Sainte Claire if there is room available. 

Antonio will be driving and I also will have my laptop with me so I can work on my Zazzle Shops during spare moments. So free parking and internet is helpful, but not required.

+ Requirements: any restrictions or requests you like to make.
I am a non-smoker, and would prefer to house with people who don't smoke as well.  I am quiet and keep to myself. I don't take up much room, and I would happily sleep in the closet if beds or cots are not available. Antonio and I don't need to be together and can room separately.

I would prefer Thursday evening-Monday afternoon, for housing. But we can take Friday-Monday if that is a better for you.

+ Contact:
I am available via my email,

I'm creating a 'Zine Style RPG called Infernal Star.  I welcome anyone who is interested in joining.

The story is set in the distant future of 2524. Earths Resources have run dry, the planet can no longer support human life. In an effort to preserve humanities future, the leaders of the world come together what should be done.  Their decision was gather every family with children between the ages of infancy and 10 years of age, all families that are four months into a pregnancy, and all persons between the ages of infancy and 20 years of age. These people were to board a generation ship and journey through space until a new , life supporting planet could be reached.

For an unknown number of generations, the colony ship Aquila travel through space until it reaches a planet that had enough oxygen to support life. The humans aboard the colony shop dub the new planet, Neo-Terra.

Not long after landing, they realizes the planet is already inhabited by a race beings known, as the Amalia. The Amalia themselves are a race of beings that resemble creatures and characters from the myths and fantasy's of Ancient Earth.

I have a number of character images that are usable for any characters, people may be interested in playing. I would be happy to work with you on creating a character for this RPG. You are also welcome to create your own design for a character. Much of this RPG is still in its beginning stages, so if you are not sure you want to join up or not you are welcome to help out by contributing with some of the world design, language building, character creation so on and so forth.

I have one person who is in Semi-control of one character. These are some characters I have for adoption at this current time.

Vico Hummel : Vico is the eldest son of Haken & Marissa Hummel. Ever since he was a child living on the colony ship, he had dreamed of the day that a life supporting planet will be found. When the colony does finally land on the Planet of the Infernal Star (Neo-Terra) he is resentful upon learning the planet is already inhabited. Vico has a largely zenophobic view towards the Amalia, and wishes they would all just disappear. While he can be considered a villain character, he isn't really evil...just short sited. Allot of his actions are based off fears and anxieties he has about the new planet and the beings that live on it. And naturally that fear breeds hatred. After their father chooses to sacrifice himself to atone for Vico killing a young Amalian boy, Vico still refuses to show remorse feeling that he was in the right and that the Amalia were responsible for his parents murder.

Currently controlled by A. Tambornino

Alexandria Verivanka Cross: Vico's girl friend. The two met while Vico was training with a small soldier battalion that worked as security personal on the Colony ship. Like Vico she is not evil, but she is resentful about the Amalia. Unlike Vico, her personality is self righteous, vindictive and spiteful. She doesn't care who has to get hurt so long as things that need doing, get done.

Roza Hummel: The eldest daughter of Haken and Marissa Hummel. Roza is kind hearted and likes to follow her mothers example when it comes to every day life. After her mothers death, she takes it upon herself to try and fill her mothers role in her families life. Roza is fascinated by "Neo-terra" and it's inhabitants. However she also fears that humanity could return to old habits and end up causing the same sort of damage to this planet that their ancestors had done to Ancient Earth centuries ago.

Currently being controlled by me.

Murtagh Hummel: The youngest son of the Hummel family. Murtagh has a strong facination for this new world and it's inhabitants. He strongly believes that there are much things to learn about the Amalia as there is to learn from them. Growing up at the colony ship he used to idolize his older brother.  On the Planet of the Infernal Star, Murtagh feels resentment towards his older brother because he is too blinded by hatred and fear to realize what he has done. Murtagh even goes as far as denouncing Vico as his brother. With the help of his older sister Roza and three Amalian youth he has befriended, he starts a new group on the Planet of the Infernal Star....The Infernal Starians.

Incredible Stuff I can Make / Infernal Star RPG 'Zine style RPG
« on: December 15, 2012, 06:00:15 PM »
This is an RPG group I started a few months ago.

It's a 'Zine style RPG meaning that the characters and world comes to life through the stories and artwork that people create.

The story is set in a fictional timeline where the planet Earth is unable to support life. So it was decreed that every child between the age of newly born-20 and every pregnant woman was to board a colony, and sent into space until a New-Earth could be found. An unknown number of generations later a living planet is finally found and dubbed "Neo-Terra."

It's not long before they realize the planet is inhabited by the Amalia, a race of beings that resemble creatures that reside in Ancient Earth Folk Lore and Fantasy.

Will the Neo-Terran's and Amalia destroy each other in their fight for the planet, or will they learn to live in peace.

Serious Business / Re: Rules on Booth babes/ Cosplayers?
« on: November 26, 2012, 10:37:05 PM »
I think in terms of cosplay people should wear what they feel within reason

I do agree there is a fine line between art and exposition and there are times and places where certain clothing styles should be appropriate and what styles shouldn't.

In anime women's styles cover a wide gamut that range from Conservative styles such as Kimono's, Miko outfits, and Japanese School/Street attire. To somewhat revealing clothing such as leotards with skirts so small that they serve more as a wide belt then an actual clothing item. To clothing that is practically non-existent.

Some solutions to this problem are very simple. First consider the audience that is going to be at the convention, for example children and young families will be more abundant at the convention on Saturday and Sunday. And of course there is also people who like to take their cosplay out on the town.  

Times like this would be more appropriate to wear a more conservative costume and save the more revealing costume for the 18 and over events later in the evening. (needless to say bring a long jacket or a small change of clothes if you have to go outside to return to your hotel room.)

Another solution is to get skintight spandex leotards, unitards, or body suits in a fleshtone color. This will allow people to be as free with their cosplay as they want without offending anyone.

If the internet died, I agree things will be difficult and there will be technological withdrawal for a while and yes business that are reliant on the internet will struggle or die out. 

But humans are resilient and adaptable, so there are people who will be able to pick up their lives and rebuild their lives so they don't need to be quite so reliant on the internet. 

I make original anime characters using royalty free clip art.

Here is some examples of some designs I have can be found



Some of these characters I sell as products on

Other characters are used as characters in an online RPG group I have started.

Hi, at this current time I'm doing a project called Anime 365. In this project I am giving a review to one anime or live action drama a day. I have successfully six reviews and working on a seventh.

Does any one know of any anime or Live action drama's I could potentally review. I will accept anything even Yaoi, Yuri and Hentai. Note: I am not a fan of fetish smut so this will more then likely receave low ratings.

The anime and Dramas I have currently reviewed are
Origin Spirits of the past
Otaku Unite
Chii's sweet home
Chii's new address
They were 11
Chocolate Underground
(Currently reviewing) Boku no sexual Harassment.

Current anime that have been suggested to me by people

People on other forums have actually liked this idea and thought it might be fun to do.

I can't say it would work in reality because odds are it wouldn't. However it would be interesting to see as a fan manga such like Aoi house or maybe an RPG.

Well naturally there will be regulations of eating, sleeping, and bathing. As in we will hose you down in public with soap and water if you don't.

Sorry no, I wasn't even at the con this year...though I wish I had.

Wish I could go, but I'm broke and don't have a car.

Not really a convention. This is a what if there was an Otaku University.

If one existed there will also be genaric rules
like Class buildings being open at 7:00 or 8:00 and closed at 9:00 PM or 10:00 PM.

Everyone needs to be in their dorms buildings by 11:00 PM

Boys can visit the girls dorm and vis/vers during the day hours (limited to rec room)

so on

If it can be comparable to a convention it would be more like a "Year round covention"

I saw recently saw the movie "Accepted".

For those who haven't seen the movie it has a guy who is essentually a college reject, so he and his fellow college rejects lease a conveniantly abandoned psychiactric hospital and remodel it into a fake College campus.

I thought the movie was dumb when it came out in theaters a couple years ago and I still think it's dumb now. But it did get me wondering...what if there was an Otaku University. A school for anime/Manga fans.

It could possibly work if done well cause of course their will be the A-typical subjects of "Language arts," "Math", "Art", "Music", "Gym" "Buisness" "History" so on and so forth.

But they can be sort of done with an anime theme to it
so Art will consist of "Manga Drawing" "Costume Design" "Art mediums" Ect.

Gym: "Anime Fan Dancing" "Ninja training (Mainly stealth, tracking, and team exercises) Ect.

Business: Anime industry

Language arts: Creative fanfiction, Character analysis and development, Animated debate

History: History of Anime, World history depicted through anime

School wide events: All night Capture the flag event.

Howered there are many cases as to how this won't work. Some prime examples are the Sub vs. Dub factions, not to mention the "Het fans vs. Yaoi Fans vs. Yuri fans" And this is in addition to the school board prudes who feel this school shouldn't exist because it doesn't function as a normal school.

I set the site up half a week ago and don't have much on it at the moment. The anime list is still a bit of a jumble which I am slowly working on along with finals. But I set the site up for people to do things as they will with it. So here's the site URL anyway.

Spark notes is a bit more indepth and analytical, but yes your right it is more or less something like

I have started a Wikia page called Sakura Memo's that I'm hoping will become like an anime/manga version of Sparknotes.

Heres a question for people?

If someone were to make a Sparknotes thing for anime, would that be a good idea or not?
