I was thinking we should have a Battle Royale cosplay gathering/veiwing party. Anyone up for the idea?

I'll be going in my cheap ass Kitano outfit.


Here is the list of people in the gathering so far. Doubles are ok, but we'd like to ask you to cosplay someone who hasn't been taken. If you could make an effort we'd appreciate it because we're trying very hard to get an entire class. Thank you and we hope you join us! ^_^

Heh, I'm tempted to go out and watch it just to join after seeing all the fun that was had at AX.. lol. :) Buuuuuuut, haven't seen it. *wishes she had*

I can bring Kawada.

I'm not so sure about bringing the shotgun though. It depends on how many passengers and how much luggage I'll have to drive with me.

Ina
07-11-2003, 03:10 PM
rose - omg, its a great movie! you should reeealllly watch it and cosplay as one of the characters XD

i was thinking of doing Yukie Utsumi, all i have to do is the skirt and add blood, fortunatly i don't have to make the sweater XD

uhm, friday sounds good tho, any other suggestions?

Tetsugyu
07-11-2003, 03:13 PM
I was thinking we go to the vewing in costume, have a quick photoshoot, then watch the movie. Problem is when and where...

I can hook you up with the DVD! I can let you borrow it. If anything, you should come just to enjoy the movie with us!
ROTFL! OMG Rose! Your status is the shit! ><

How does Friday night sound? Maybe in the evening. The other thing is getting a room that's easily accessable where I can hook my player up to. Unless someone wants to donate a player to the cause?

Nadeshiko
07-11-2003, 03:48 PM
Friday nite? Hm...that's the Sakura Taisen gathering / Cosplay kareoke thing....

I'm up for it. Shall be going in my Keiko goodness! ^^

RoseDuelist
07-11-2003, 03:59 PM
Hmmm.. must watch.. just to cosplay. @_@;;

Shouldn't it go the OTHER way? *shrug* heh.. whatever... *begins search for DVD* :D

K_Valentine
07-11-2003, 04:00 PM
What do you need, Jarod for playing? VHS or DVD? BTW, what's VHS?

RoseDuelist
07-11-2003, 04:15 PM
I could watch either.... I wonder if it's for rent somewhere, or if it's a hard to find item... hmmm...

Ina
07-11-2003, 04:15 PM
BTW, what's VHS?

i thought VHS doesn't exist anymore XD

rose - theres TONS at ebay, i got mine at AX ^^;;

Tetsugyu
07-11-2003, 04:19 PM
LMAO@Tom. You're so funny. I need a DVD player. I believe my Korean DVD is regionless, so anything will do. What I'd like to do is get the Japanese SE Director's Cut and show that. I'm sure it has way better subs than what I got...but for the life of me I can't be mad at my Korean Boxset. I just LOVE the cover. It looks spiffy. Could also have to do with the KOF Korean Team Cosplay I did at the Capcom Vs SNK Gathering...

Does anyone have the Japanese SE Director's Cut they can lend to the cause?

and if so, Tom do you have a regionless? If not I'll bring mine. It won't be too much of a hassle to bring.

*looks over his shoulder* Uh oh! Mitsko just walked into Megumi's shack! Must watch.

Um...I said I'd let you borrow mine. Heck I could make you a tape...

K_Valentine
07-11-2003, 04:21 PM
I have a PS2 and something I um.... "confiscated" a while back but that's a region one one.

Tetsugyu
07-11-2003, 04:26 PM
Ok then I'll bring my Regionless. We won't go through the fiasco of last time when we had that Shaolin Soccer viewing party. I lost my Gameshark disc because of it. John STILL hasn't been able to give it back to me.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-11-2003, 05:10 PM
I'm down to watch it, and I'm down to take pics of the cosplayers. That is one kick ass movie

Tetsugyu
07-11-2003, 05:59 PM
You know Ryu...you should cosplay as the Teacher from BR II. You kinda look like him. DL the trailer off of http://br-new.jp/index.html and check it out. Might be an idea for you?

Ginny
07-11-2003, 08:55 PM
I'm sure I could throw together a BRII costume if I go. ^___^

Ina
07-11-2003, 09:08 PM
those new BRII costumes looks so kickass, i wanna be one of the wild seven than the new class XD

maikaeirn
07-11-2003, 09:55 PM
Hmmm, nobody here has listed doing Shuya...
... GOOD! That's my guy right there!

I loved this movie! Saw it and i immediately knew that i had to cosplay the character. The character with the pot lid! Because the pot lid rocks!

Tetsugyu
07-12-2003, 01:25 AM
G-Chan might come to Ani-Magic? Damn! lol

Hey guys! I just realized! BRII came out last Saturday! That means when we had our BR gathering at AX, in Japan the movie debuted! Isn't that vierd? lol. It's too bad no one realized it.


-Ok here's the list-

Tom/K_Valantine: Kawada
Vic: Keiko
Jarod: Kitano-sensei
Brian: Kiryiama (If he comes)
G-Chan: BRII Char (If she comes)
Maikaeirn: Nanahara Shuya
Yuna/Nessa: Mitsuko

Hey G, wouldn't you rather go as a student from the first movie? I would think it hard to cosplay someone from a movie that isn't even out yet (here). But I'm one to talk, asking George to cosplay as the new...Teacher? It's only because he looks like him and has the same hair. I figured it'd be nice to see someone do it. My one dream is to have class Vs class.

New Teacher dude: BR Two! ><

RoseDuelist
07-12-2003, 01:34 AM
Jarod- Go ahead and make a VHS copy for me and sent it to me (I'll send you my address in PM). I wouldn't want to borrow your DVD because we live so far away and such.. you might not see it again for a while.. lol!

I'll pay postage and such.. ^_^

enishi
07-12-2003, 01:48 AM
Oh yeah, BRII. If I get a chance to see the movie before Ani-Magic -- and like it -- I'll probably cosplay from it.

RoseDuelist
07-12-2003, 01:53 AM
I find it so funny some of us what to watch the movie just so we can cosplay it.. lol! @_@ We crazy people..

*eats cookie and bounces away*

Tetsugyu
07-12-2003, 02:00 AM
Rose: You got it hun.

Brian: I'll make another one it seems.

*looks for blank tapes*

Ina
07-12-2003, 03:39 PM
tetsugyu! can you add me to the list, i'll be yukie utsumi (girl #2) ^^;

maikaeirn
07-12-2003, 11:59 PM
Hmm, pretty good turn out so far...
... neh, doesn't anyone want to be Noriko? I'd like pics with someone cosplaying her. ^^

katchoo
07-13-2003, 12:41 AM
Hi! I'm going to be cosplaying as Noriko. I would love to take pics with you maikaerin. ^_^ You can add me.

Enishi: Boys #6 Kazou Kiriyama (If he comes)

No Onee-chan? I wonder if we can get the one from AX! She was too cute! The list so far is not too shabby. I hope we can get more people. Is anyone actualy looking forward to the viewing party that's coming with this gathering? I Know I am. Like Bryant said "You and your quotes Jarod..."


Ok sit down. I'm Kitano your 7th grade teacher. I'm taking over class B again. Lets be friends. :)

Tetsugyu

ROTFLMAO! Hey you know that cosplay one was my idea! But you take the cake for using them all!

We have two new transfer students.
Valantine over there. And..
Enishi over there.
Be nice to them.

You might have already guessed...but these two are dangerous.

maikaeirn
07-13-2003, 02:13 AM
Ok, got all of that down. Just one more question all:

What day are we going to do this thing?

Tetsugyu
07-13-2003, 02:50 AM
LMAO! AWESOME AVA!

I want to upload an ava as me as Kitano...

Well I was thinking of Friday evening? I was hoping for opinions from you all. Shout some times out.

Ok who here likes my new banner?!

ROTFLMAO!

maikaeirn
07-13-2003, 02:56 AM
^^ I know isn't it great? I just went on a BR icon kick and created like 300 icons! Neh, it's midnight and i'm bored out of my mind...

Anyways, Friday? I was thinking more on Saturday. It's just that more people tend to cosplay that day and yea...
... *sigh* doesn't really matter to me. *shrugs*

K_Valentine
07-13-2003, 02:57 AM
Saturday night = Masquerade.

Tetsugyu
07-13-2003, 04:01 AM
That'd be hard. Some of us will be in the Masqurade cosplaying...I guess we could do it though. Let's see what more people say.

SohjiroX
07-13-2003, 04:13 AM
you know I am in just hope I can get everything done in time for it, if not I will only have 25% of the stuff done I am planning for fanime or AX next year

katchoo
07-13-2003, 03:03 PM
I'm all done with my outfit except the collar. Any tips for how to make it?

Personally I would love to go to the viewing party afterwards!!

Tetsugyu, no problem with pics. I've already lost three pounds this week, so by Ani-Magic hopefully I will have lost like 10-15 pounds. ^_^

SohjiroX
07-13-2003, 03:24 PM
today I go and get the final total of tax and more on everything for the items and for the outfits, hopefully it will be good price so I can do it for animagic, so if that happens.....BR2 will be at animagic, plus some more weapons to hand out just....dotn break and loose them please.

You're fine the way you are love! You're a hottie so it don't matter what you weigh. I just wanted to get some Lolita pics with you and I as Kitano and Noriko. It'd be too hilarious. Maybe have our Shuya looking jealous in the BG of some of them.


You can do it Katchoo24, You can do it.

What's wrong? If you don't I will.

*points weapon, is shot by Shuya*

Ouch! *uses squirt gun*


Fuck I love this movie. hehehehehehe

Anyone NOT like the idea of the vewing party? I wanna make sure. Oh and I might have the General and a few of the soldiers with me when I come to the gathering! Yay!

Anyone like my new banner?

You're loosing weight? @_@? Why? From the pics i saw of you in your database you look fine the way you are...
... *sigh* I just don't see the reason.

Anyways, the collar? Good question. I need to figure out how to make one too. Need to brainstorm some ideas...

Moi? Looking jelous? Sure i can do that! ^_^ As long as there is a promise of a squirt gun in my posession!

That's what I'm saying! She's perfect! ><

maikaeirn
07-13-2003, 05:38 PM
SEE! What is up with some chics and the need to loose weight whent they look perfectly fine!? I just don't get it!

Tetsugyu
07-13-2003, 05:48 PM
I know man! I'm a fat ass myself and although sometimes I think about loosing weight, I revel in it. I like to cosplay the hefty dudes. Like Tetsugyu, Chang Koehan, The Collector, Kawarazaki, ect. I refuse to cosplay people not in my weight range. I'm not gonna be like a Sumo Senshi. ( -_-;; ) I know I'm pushing it with Kitano, since Beat Takeshi isn't fat at all...but he's my GOD and I think he's the koolest man...EVER! So I took an exception and cosplayed him. What's funny is, I told Bryant (Enishi) that even if I was skinny enough to cosplay as one of the studants...I'd STILL cosplay as Kitano. Why? Because he is HANDS DOWN my favorite character in that movie. How can you "beat" the lines he had? (drum roll). But anyway, I think Katrina is perfect the way she is. :)

*blushes* oh my gosh..you guys are too nice. *bows* I am just toning and stuff. I'm trying really hard to not pay attention to numbers.

hehe our pictures are going to be awesome. Either of you going to be at comic con?

maikaeirn
07-13-2003, 10:47 PM
No, but i wish i were. *sigh* Actually, i need to focus on school at the moment and what the hell i'm going to do with my life!!!!

*ponders* Decisions, decisions...

Anyways, i hope you and everyone else going has a good time. ^^

Well, you're a hottie. No other way to say it. I just hope your fine self can go for a big lug like me. *blushes* I can't make it to Comic Con. I want to now that I'm pretty sure I won't make it to Otakon...but I've got no ride and I work on Saturday. Ah well, maybe I'll go next year.

KimikoChan
07-14-2003, 12:04 AM
Well if I lose enough weight by then *lol*, and I can get everything together, then I might be Onee-chan. I've lost 20+ so far, so if I can lose another 20 or so, I'll be happy :D

I can't wait eeeek!

Tetsugyu
07-14-2003, 12:08 AM
THAT ROCKS HARD! We could use an Oneesan! I hope we see you there.

KimikoChan
07-14-2003, 05:45 PM
Thanks :D Well I WILL be there, I just hope it all works out.. It will be fun as hell! :D

Oh and any day would work for me, so whatever you choose I'll be there ^_^

Tetsugyu
07-14-2003, 06:04 PM
Su weet KimikoChan. Let me ask you:

1. Looking forward to the veiwing party?
2. Is your costume confirmed or just you to come to watch BR with us or just to come to the Con?

I'm glad you're looking forward to this. So am I! I can't wait!

You can just call me Kimiko.. The "chan" was added cuz the name was taken *cries* lol

Now to answer you:

1) Hell yeah! Fun times - awesome movie :D

2) It's still up in the air right now, but if I have everything completed by then, then yes, it will be confirmed. I'll be there no matter what (to watch AND con ^^). I'll at least have my collar thing ready :p

Yuna
07-15-2003, 04:39 AM
Okay, yeah, Friday evening = BAD BAD BAD NO BOX NO BOX NO BOX.

I am part of the Revue, so there can be no Nessa BR-ness on Friday night o___o; Can we reschedual maybe?

Michi
07-15-2003, 04:49 AM
I'm up for a viewing party.. possibly. I wouldn't mind doing BR cosplay as well, but I can't make it myself. ^_^;

Tetsugyu
07-15-2003, 02:22 PM
Yuna: How about late Friday night?

Michi: Buy a school Uniform. Maybe someone here can help you?

I need a screen capture of him..you know, full body shot.. then maybe and thanks I think? LOL

Tetsugyu
07-15-2003, 03:22 PM
Well I figure you can wing it, just by those images. I'm thinking about doing it myself. If you study it long enough you can get an idea of what to get. I do agree though, a full body shot sure helps. I just doubt anyone will make one.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-15-2003, 10:05 PM
Tesugyu: well, somebody will. Maybe they have fansites about Battle Royale? you just have to search for the pics.. it shouldn't be too hard.. I hope. :D

07-15-2003, 10:20 PM
http://www.battleroyaleonline.com

That is the best site i have ever seen ever dedicated to this movie. Plus it's in English so i can understand it... ^^;

Ahhh! I love this movie so much! Even though i've only seen it once (and it was in my hotel room at AX) i am now obsessed with it! NOT HEALTHY!!!!!!!!

Tetsugyu
07-15-2003, 10:27 PM
Pot Lid: I know man! Me too! Look at my Avatar! I can't help it. I forgot how much I love this movie. Yes, BRonline.com is the best site for BR I've seen in English. Props to you for posting a link.




Ryu: I just have to? :P

We both should if we both want to do this. Sure I gave ya the idea, and if I find anything I'll send it to ya.

:P


PS: Hey guys, does anyone want an Ani-Magic Battle Royale Banner for their Signature? I was thinking of making them for us. Don't worry, I won't make them huge like the one I currently have. But if you want one for the char you'll cosplay, hollar at me.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-15-2003, 10:38 PM
Tetsugyu: I'm down for it...one real and the other a clone..I like the sound of that LOL

Thanks Mai-chan!*glomps*

07-15-2003, 10:58 PM
I so want to be part of this. I'm working on going to Ani-magic so can you guys put me down as a maybe.I want to cosplay as Satomi Noda. I forgot what student number she is.

I just need to figure out what fabric to make the skirt out of and I think I can handle the collar.

Oh and I forgot to ask, do we need to make the jackets as well and are we gonna be bloody for the photo shoot? Since, I'm working on a costume for ani magic, my time and skill is really limited so yeah....

^.^

katchoo
07-15-2003, 11:04 PM
Tetsugyu,
A banner would be cool, but smaller would be nice. ^_^ Awesome that you are willing to put it together.

K_Valentine
07-15-2003, 11:09 PM
I'll take one. I think you know who I'm cosplaying as from BR.

Tetsugyu
07-15-2003, 11:21 PM
You got it guys. BTW, does anyone like my Ava? I'm high on BR goodness!

PS: Trina love...I said I'd make em smaller ya silly goose. *tickles you*

KimikoChan
07-15-2003, 11:55 PM
Yeah, I'd love a mini BR banner, that would be great :D

Ahhh, it's so far away, but it feels like it's just around the corner :D

K_Valentine
07-16-2003, 12:29 AM
Love the banner, man. I guess I'll even pack the SPAS for AM.

Tetsugyu
07-16-2003, 12:32 AM
Yay! I was hoping you'd bring it! Glad you like the banner. Don't worry you guys, I'm working on your banners as we speak. Those who've asked for them I mean. Ask and you shall recieve.

RoseDuelist
07-16-2003, 12:41 AM
I would like one, but I haven't claimed a character yet... so I dunno who'd be on it. Chances are I'll just be a "random student" or sumthin'.. but I won't claim a charrie until I've seen it... heh..

P.S. $$$ has been sent Jarod.. it's in the mail.. woot!

Tetsugyu
07-16-2003, 12:44 AM
So you posted before! I'm so glad! I want you to see this movie. Don't worry hun, I'll be making you a Banner when and if you pic a character. Should be enough time. :)


*is listening to the soundtrack in the BG*

maikaeirn
07-16-2003, 01:10 AM
O_O Banners! Think you can put one together for me? One with a pot lid on it!? Oh that would rock the house!

... -_- *sigh* SO NOT HEALTHY!!!!

Tetsugyu
07-16-2003, 01:13 AM
hehehe I was wonering when you'd ask me. And yes, BR is actualy part of a "well-balanced" diet. It provides essential inks and dyes. LOL

I'll make yours after Katchoo's. She's next on the list.

I wonder if I should add quotes...not enough room maybe...

Michi
07-16-2003, 06:13 AM
o_O I wonder if I could find a uniform at a thrift shop that matched the BR ones... nyan. I don't wanna bother someone with making one for me. X_X

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-16-2003, 01:17 PM
Tetsugyu: dude, make me a banner and just add me as a random student lol...for now.. ^_^

Kusanagi
07-16-2003, 01:50 PM
Ya know, the more I hear about this movie, the more I want to see it and cosplay from it...because I always did like costumes that involved alot of blood, hehe.

There isn't anyone I can think of you look like. Your height reminds me of Mimura Shinji, the kick ass computer hacker dude. I'd suggest that. But first I suggest you see it. Send me 5 bucks and I'll make you a tape. IM me with your info.

Michi: Good idea. Check out a thrift shop. Any idea what character you'd be?

Ryu: Hmmm...or I'll see if I can make one.

I know, I haven't seen it yet but it seems so incredibly intriguing. I'd love to cosplay from it too.

If I do end up going to Animagic(I just need to clear a work schedule), I'd probably try and do a random student costume(or the announcer!).

Hey guys and gals, would it be cool if my skirt is made out of Polyester even tho it doesn't like they are? My friend just gave me a khaki color pleated skirt but it's made out of polyester.

I want to try to match all the girls but I doubt I'll be able too since there are different shades. I want to Joanns today and I couldn't ifnd anything that would work for the skirt besides Polyester. =(

Yes, that's what I meant. =) I wasn't sure exactly what her name was(or what the japanese translation of "big sister" was, for that matter....).

Kimiko + Usagi: I got your banners ready. IM me and I'll direct connect or get an email from you to email them to you.

Usagi: Hun, I for one can say it won't matter. I have thee WORST looking costume out of all of you. I couldn't find the Northfield Sport outfit he actualy wore. I'll be wearing a cheap version. Plus I think SojiroX will still let me borrow his Deserty Eagle airsoft gun so I'll be my own version I guess. Kinda like all those cheap batman figures they came out with after the movie was deemed highly profitable. I'll be "Super Vengence Takeshi-sensei!"


...and like unscrew my head and you can poor motor oil and grapefruit juice in there. Oh and push down on my head... "DOUBLE DUCE ACTION". Oh yeah and dip me into water and you'll see my "Severe Nobu knife fight damage!" Oh yeah!

LOL. I'm mental.

duck: Ahh ok! That'd be sweet. We'll have two Oneesans! Yay. Do you want a banner too? Just let me know if you want a VHS copy; I have the special edition director's cut. Seems I'll be busy makin' alot of tapes then. :)

Now, I need to make a shotgun somehow. Anyone got any adivce? I wonder if there are toy shotguns. Do they make toy shot guns or do I have to make them? Time to look at toys r us. Either that or a Ozi but I might bring both.

Hey! Is this the film where Beat Takeshi is running a killing field that requires high school students to kill each other??? I never could understand why that was, and I'm not so sure I want weapons running about the con. Someone explain this to me. Also, our weapons policy is pending approval.

this is the basic premise:
Directed by Kinji Fukasaku, 109 min. (original version) 117 min. ("Special Edition") starring , "Beat" Takeshi Kitano, Tatsuya Fujiwara, Aki Maeda, Taro Yamamoto, Masanobu Ando, Kou Shibasaki, Chiaki Kuriyama, Sousuke Takaoka, Eri Ishikawa, and Yűko Miyamura.
You're Japanese and you're fifteen years old. You're generally getting on OK, you've dealt with the first rush of adolescent hormones just as everyone else does, you're regarded as well-adjusted by your peers and downright polite by just about everyone else. School's OK; your class 3B is quite large and there's a psycho called Nobu who once stabbed class teacher Mr Kitano in the arse. But it's all generally fine, is life. Your friend Nanahara's dad committed suicide, so he's in a home with Nobu; class slut Mitsuko is hated by just about every one in the damn school and Utsumi and her mates have a nasty habit of locking Noriko in the toilets just for being, well, Noriko. But there's idiots everywhere, right?

You're only vaguely aware that a few years ago, the Japanese parliament passed a law because they were 'fearful of the youth', which means one class of your age group must engage in the Battle Royale, a bizarre survivalist exercise on a deserted island which involves blowing away all your classmates. Something to do with both revenge and prevention. Only grown-ups could come up with a concept so bizarre. And only the last survivor gets to go home - and only if the 'game' lasts less than three days - otherwise - oops. No more 3B.

Tom: Well, she took the 9mm machine gun off the table, which was given to Yuka (girl who got poisoned). Looks like an ozi for sure.

Yep this is that film. Although he's not running a killing field. It's an alternate future of Japan where the youth have boycotted school and unemployment levels are at 15%.

So the governtment enacts a sot of Martial Law and passes a Law: The Melinium Educational Reform Act V BATTLE ROYALE.

Anyway, you'll understand it when you see it. It's a great film.

As for the weapons, from what I know they'll all be airsoft replicas, which means the tips will be orange. Will that sufice? If not we'll adhear to any peice bonding policies you enact. I wouldn't worry too much, I think we're all going to be in a room or something when we take pics. I was going to talk to Rob and see if we could get a room for the Viewing party. That way we could take pics there, not worry you guys...and the rooms look kinda like classrooms...I smell possibilities people!

07-16-2003, 09:46 PM
Wheeee! I'll make an Oneesan costume(yay for actually "wearable" costumes), but I may just do a random student one for a photo gathering, since Kimiko seems to be well ahead of me.

Oooo...this Yoshimi Yahagi gal gets a plastic hammer. Plastic hammer of dooooom.

The Ai Iwamura character(the winner of the last battle royale) seems like one of the few things that will actually lead me to make a sailor fuku someday...

(I really must get out of this habit of cosplaying/wanting to cosplay characters I don't actually <i>know</i>. But there's blood! And weapons! And I'm told it's a sociological mindfuck, which is always nice.)

Kitano's daughter Shiori's in it as a transfer student!
Also the Smiling winner is back!

So it was a Ingram. Okay, if you do pick one up Mr. Valentine, I would to LOVE to borrow it for the photo session. If not, I'll go buy one from somewhere. I have 3 or less months to find one.

Now re: the viewing party. I need to know when it is set for. My job is being a punk right now and won't give me friday sat and sunday off. If it is held on friday, I need a time becuase I'll have to leave early from work and fly out there.

If it's Saturday then I CAN BE THERE!!!

This will happen during the evening right? Not spread out during the day, like the photos in the afternoon and then the viewing at night? 'cuz if it is, I might not make it to the photo if it's on friday. The view I might. I'm hoping to leave work at 3pm and catching a 5pm flight out of there. it'll be pushing it.

real fast I have a question I was looking at something and talking this over with tets. about making a booth, its hard to expian the whole deal is for looks and thats it, its more like supposed to be for camera spots for BR people, i looked up prices and such but wanted to know if its possible to use another place or such without really paying like a table area, we would have stuff around it and banners and stuff but no real selling, actually no selling at all so, is there anyway around the pruchase of a booth or a rent a booth for a one day thing?

'cuz if it is, I might not make it to the photo if it's on friday. The view I might. I'm hoping to leave work at 3pm and catching a 5pm flight out of there. it'll be pushing it.

Here's the thing: I would have it on Saturday but I have no idea what my Saturday Scedual will be like. My cosplay group and I are hosting a panel with the very creator of our favorite anime, which is the namesake of out group. (Giant Robo, of which Tetsugyu is a character.)

And it seems Ina can't make Saturday anyway. Some of us have things to do Friday night, so Friday Evening is fine. But I'm thinking like 3pm on Friday. Maybe even 2pm.

My idea was to watch the movie, then take pictures. But then again it might be better to take pics then the movie...or do both. I don't know how comfortable you'll all be in your costumes. Guess that should go to a vote.


AS FOR THE BOOTH: I'm half and half on the idea.

First off, it's awesome. I think it'd be alot of fun. Problem is people getting involved. I think only you and I and a few others would want to do this. I mean sure, if it was like for an hour or two, maybe...but buying a booth for a whole day and only using it for that long? It's just not practical. I say, we find an area and make our own booth there. Like in a shady corner of the Pool area. We can still do our bit there, but with less of a finacial cost to you. Honestly, I don't mind helping out with money, but not to buy a booth. Setting up our own booth and helping with the materials cost for it isn't a problem.

And as for your helping me, you should explain that you'll be cosplaying as the General from the first BR, which does happen to be in BR II.

So you can still do both and be in both movies. Heck, I know Kitano is the flashback man of the year in it. :)

But anyway, As for Ryu's suggestion of Class Vs Class, that's the same idea I had for AX this year. But that was back when I was under the assumtion that BR II met it's orginal release date, Febuary 22 of this year. I didn't factor in Kinji's death and all that. But since it just came out two weekends ago...I don't know if Class Vs Class is such a good idea ATM. Only because it's so fresh. I say we wait until we see BR II, so we know what chars we like, which to cosplay. Just my opinion. But you all do what ya feel. On SHEER Principle, I STILL suggest Ryu cosplays as the new Sensei. Why? Because I love how in the trailer he yells "BR TWOO!" Yes I am a nut. lol

...*wipes forhead* Whew...done.

07-17-2003, 09:49 PM
I never said I was giving up on acquiring a school uniform, guys. o_o; I don't want to be Mitsuko so badly to just pick her other outfit.. Not that it's a bad choice or I wouldn't wear such a thing (remember my Fujiko?), and I'm sure any other Mitsuko fan would do it, but I wanted to join the BR group to be a student in a bloody uniform ~ not just to be Mitsuko. Ne?
I still haven't seen all of the movie, so once I'm able to I'll pick a character.. and if I get all of my other Ani-Magic costumes done I'll see about getting myself a uniform. If not, I can join BR groupness at next Fanime or something.

Tetsugyu
07-17-2003, 09:52 PM
Yeah you're right. There are plenty of Schoolgirl hotties you can cosplay as from BR. You'll just have to see it and make your own choice. If anything, I still suggest you come to the party and watch it with us. Like RHPS, this movie is awesome when seen with an audience.

Duck: That BR site is the shit! OMG that's hot. Oh and to further show my obsession:

http://www.battleroyalefilm.net/merchandise/music.html

And I quote:

"The music heard in the movie can largely be found in the official soundtrack album. Some brief stretches of background music (like during Nanahara's journey to reunite with his friends) are omitted from the album, and some are actually borrowed from composer Masamichi Amano's Giant Robo soundtrack."

Yes! The link to my two obsessions! Now to find a link to the Lensman movie...

FYI: The music that plays during the scene where Nanahara finds Noriko in the rain and Kitano gives her his umbrella is non other than the Music that plays during Tetsugyu's death in Giant Robo! ><

Ok...I feel better now!

But anyway! The link to BR and GR is complete! *looks all Vader like*

Ahhh it feels good to be obsessed...

The executive board of the con met tonight, and we've come to a decision
regarding the Battle Royale Cosplay gathering. You all can have the cosplay
gathering in any venue that any other cosplay gathering would take place at.
However, the board has decided that the Battle Royale film will not be shown
in any of our video rooms for public consumption. The point being that it is
not anime, the second point is that its violent nature, which consists of
students having to hunt each other down and kill one another is not in
keeping with our family friendly nature.

Second, if there are cosplayers planning on bringing weapons in keeping with
their parts in the film, we are also concerned about the possible appearance
of replica arms, edged weapons, and knives. We are discouraging this kind of
cosplay in order to protect our liability should the unlikely event that one
of these items gets in play and injures someone. This may be all over
nothing but we can't take that chance of not regulating what goes on in the
event or the property. We hope you understand and will respect our wishes on
this issue.

So will airsofts with bright orange tips on the barrels be allowed?

AM Chair
07-20-2003, 02:17 AM
Hate to say it, but the the board has also moved to prohibit airsoft weapons during the con as well. We feel that there is no good reason for these guns to show up in cosplay, and if someone gets shot with one, we'll be dealing with the liability issues.

Revell: well, since Tetsugyu is planning this, he wasn't going to show the movie at any of the video rooms. he was thinking of showing the movie in private..in his hotel room or something. and I can understand about that

Aww... I love the way Battle Royale cosplay looks! I'd love to do it someday... *______*

Tetsugyu
07-20-2003, 12:26 PM
Actualy Ryu, if you look back a page or two I figured I'd aim for a video room. But I guess it's back to the orginal plan, showing it in someone's room.

Problem is, finding someone with a room that's accessable. Might have to use my room. Should be ok since my roomies are Kawada and Keiko cosplayers...but I know we have a room that's way in the back, away from the central area. Makes it less convient for everyone IMO.

If anyone has a room closer to the pool, and would like to lend it to the cause, please let me know.

KimikoChan
07-21-2003, 03:45 AM
Well I dont' know where my room is yet, and i only have a single cuz that's all that's left, but if needed, I'm willing to loan it out hehe

Battle Royale? Should I cosplay as the Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, or Brock Lesnar? >=D

Woof. >=D Meat, cheese, meat, cheese. >=D

But, seriously, I should be able to catch THIS gathering this time since I missed your gathering at AX. ^__^ v

Tetsugyu

Whoa...wrong Battle Royale Rey-Rey.

This one involves guns. Let's see the rock and stone cold survive that. :P

07-21-2003, 01:52 PM
Yes, I'm exactly aware of what you guys are talking about. ^__^ v As I was mentioning, I'm hoping to catch Ani-Magic's gathering since I missed AX's.

But, yeah...

STONE COLD! STONE COLD!! HE IS BROKEN IN HALF!!! NO, REALLY!!! HE IS BROKEN IN HALF!!!

Ha ha ha. I should watch Battle Royale again, though. I watched the whole thing once at the beginning of this year.

Back to your topic. ^__^ v

Tetsugyu
07-22-2003, 03:33 AM
I just had this great idea. What if we had a Battle Royale NON-Alcoholic Drinking Game!?


Goes like so:


Participants put 5 dollars into a pot. Winner gets pot for staying "alive".

Like so:

Rules-

Take a drink for every item mentioned in list (We can all agree on a list later. But for instance: Take a drink for everytime a person dies, gets shot, stabbed, smiles ect)

Since it's a NON-ALCHHOLIC Drinking Game participants can bring any liquid they like, and I will see about providing bottled water should we run out of liquid.

People who go to the bathroom (enter the bathroom) lose. They are then declaired "Dead" and the number of remaining participants are declared. Like so-

Girls # 15 Nakagawa Noriko: Dead
Sensei Kitano Takeshi: Dead

13 to go


The Person to Survive this Program (pun intended) gets the pot and gains freedom.


Does anyone else like this idea??

Post if ya do!

The drinking idea sounds funny as hell.. XD

By the way *glomps Jarod* GOT THE TAPE!! YOU RULE!! WAAAAAA!!!

I'm only half way through, but I really like Mitsuko. Too bad she's already taken.. twice.. *pout* Her weapon from the begininning would have been a hella fun to make. wee! But once I finish watching it I'll tell ya what I decided to be...

Usagi Mylene
07-22-2003, 11:52 AM
If I'm not mistaken, Mitsuko is only taken as the school uniform version. If you really want to be her, take her white top and jean short version. By then she had not only the sickle but a stun gun to boot.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-22-2003, 12:52 PM

But once I finish watching it I'll tell ya what I decided to be... You're welcome! Usagi is right. Michi doesn't want to be Mitsuko, so it's only one Mitsuko. Well, I talked with another girl last night and she's doing Mitsuko as well, but School Uniform Mitsuko. So yeah, doing white shirt, Daisy Dukes Mitsuko would be a nice treat to see. But yeah, finish it off and then let us know what you decide. I'll make you a banner.

So far Kimiko, Ryu, Usagi, enishi (but won't be playing), and Rose like the idea. That's pretty good so far. Anyone else?

K_Valentine
07-22-2003, 03:52 PM
Depends on the drink, # of participants (take into account the risk and reward), and $ on the table (has a gambling philosophy and minimum).

Caffeine.... uh, no.
Water ok.
Alcohol prefered (but I figure with minors, bugger).

EDIT: $35 so far? Eh..... I'll wait until it reaches my Vegas Blackjack minimum before jumping in.

Tetsugyu
07-22-2003, 03:56 PM
Water or whatever you can bring

ao far seems about 7 people.

7 X 5 = 35

Could get better the more people we get. I'm thinking of adding the rule. Leaving the room marks you for death. That way even when the movie is over, if people are resiliant, then we can decide it that way.

See I was down for the alcohol but i forgot about the kiddies....

But everything else is fine with me. Come on!!! We need more people. I got a costume I need to make and need money..... ^.^

K_Valentine
07-22-2003, 05:17 PM
How about $50/head?
:devil: How's this to get alcohol in effect: The drink IS booze. The minors toss their 5 into the pot, but are immediately killed. Less competition, more money, AND we get booze! :devil:

Tetsugyu
07-22-2003, 05:38 PM
You are EVIL Tom. That's why I like yas. Anyway, no booze. The Hotel and Con as STRICT rules about this. I'm not getting kicked out of the Con or the Hotel.

50 bucks a head? No one would go in on it. Maybe 10, sure. But not 50. 10 is pushing it too. 5 is comfortable so no one is hurt too badly.

Ina
07-22-2003, 07:32 PM
that's an awesome idea! i'm all up for it! XD

duck
07-22-2003, 07:59 PM
That's great. I would love to do said non-alcoholic-drinking-game, despite the fact that I have a notoriously small bladder.

For those of us also with notoriously small wallets(presuming I actually do make it to Ani Magic, all my "expendable" money is going towards my refusal to subside off water and ramen for a weekend), might I suggest an offer of some anime dvd or manga or some sort of related item for the "pot" instead of money? Actually, five bucks is fine by me, but I though it might be kinda cool to win stuff(or have stuff present to win).

K_Valentine
07-22-2003, 08:03 PM
DVD's and other items would make the pot more interesting than money. I wager my first volume of City Hunter VHS.

And I think items will keep things friendly.... lost a few good friends due to bets and pools (cries of cheating and failure to pay when one lost).

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-22-2003, 08:12 PM
hmm..I like the idea of that as well..win prizes as well. well, I'll bet...whatever anime that I have at my possesion at the time...and I hope that Full Moon doesn't get licensed, I will put a copy of the entire 52 episodes on CD-R as well as a prize lol

Tetsugyu
07-22-2003, 09:32 PM
Hmmm...that sounds like a great idea. I'll get my hands on a Japanese DVD copy of BR (It has subs, BTW) and throw that in.

So is it 5 and a prize?

KimikoChan
07-22-2003, 09:33 PM
I like the thought of items as well. Money comes and goes, but who knows what kind of goodies you can get instead. Maybe a "whats behind door #2" could work as well.. lol j/k

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-22-2003, 09:33 PM
Tetsugyu: yeah.. it's 5 bucks and a prize ^_^

KimikoChan
07-22-2003, 09:34 PM
Hmm i think it might be better to have money OR a prize.. I mean individually. 5 bucks may not seem like much, but for a poor soul like myself, that's a meal's worth ;)

Tetsugyu
07-22-2003, 09:34 PM
Ryu: Well not really, Kimiko is saying it should be strictly a prize. We should also ask the others how they feel.

KimikoChan
07-22-2003, 09:37 PM
nono i'm sorry. I said that wrong.. lol I meant.. people can donate either 5 bucks or a prize.. or both if they really want to. I just mean, I could donate some cool anime-ish item, or 5 bucks.. Hope that makes more sense.. hehe So the pot could be a mix of money and goodies ^_^

K_Valentine
07-22-2003, 09:37 PM
$5 OR a prize. I'd rather just be a prize (see previous post regarding friendly bets turned bad).

And a good chance to see other people's taste in anime.

EDIT: Kicks slow comp for not responding fast enough.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-22-2003, 09:42 PM
well, the winner gets a choice in the matter..either the $ or the prize. I wonder if they should be at least one consolation prize lol

K_Valentine
07-22-2003, 09:44 PM
Well, I'm only supplying a prize so "or" is moot in my case.

KimikoChan
07-22-2003, 09:44 PM
Hmm.. lol i think this is getting confusing.. Basically BEFORE you begin playing, you drop something in the pot. It could be $5.00, some type of prize (anime/manga related would be nifty), or both if you so desire. But this is really up to Tetsugyu cuz it's his game :)

I was just saying, some people might not have $5 to donate or might want to donate some anime or something instead. This way, the winner gets whatever is in the pot. It could be filled with money AND prizes, so they get a nice pot of loot.

[edit] And how come my siggie pic doesn't show up anymore?? :(

duck
07-22-2003, 10:21 PM
*lol* I have managed to confuse every one. But Kimiko's last post explains what I meant.

That said, something like a book, or a movie is probably a better idea of something to "throw into the pot" as opposed to ...let's say...a duct tape replica of the buster sword or someone's falsies. =)

Tetsugyu
07-22-2003, 10:23 PM
Yeah I think Kimiko has the right idea. It should be either or. 5 dollar minimum if you have no prize to donate. My game? Well, I'd like to think it belongs to all of us. What I wanted to ask is if I can participate?

I also had this idea. As a sign of good faith, second and third runners up will get prizes as well, not related to the pot.


Kimiko: Did you hilight the box that says "show signature?"

Nadeshiko
07-22-2003, 10:47 PM
Hmm...I'd be willing too. I haven't played a non alcoholic drinking game since 1997...that was with Sailormoon at a slumber party.

I could throw in a few vcds of downloaded anime, how about that?

KimikoChan
07-22-2003, 10:55 PM
Of course you can participate Tetsugyu. If you don't then something bad might happen.. heh heh.

D'oh! I finally figured it out. Somtimes I post with the "post reply" button and it's automatically highlighted, and sometimes I just post in the box at the bottom.. and I just now noticed it.. grrrr.. lol dumb me! hehe thanks hun!

Duck, I knew I understood what you meant lol I think I was starting to confuse everyone with my babbling. lol yeah, we wouldn't want someone to throw in fake puke or something joke-like.. ewww

Thanks Kimiko. I just wanted to be safe in playing too and not have any doubts of game riggin' or some crap like that. I wanted to make sure it was all good. If anyone has a problem I'll forego playing but I'd still like the winner to have the Japanese import DVD. I'll throw it in. It's just not a party unless someone wins that.

Yay! Your banner works! Everyone! Show off your banners for me! :)

Wait a sec, we're going to have FOUR Mitsukos? I know I'm doing it, and so is Shounen_Star, but there's ANOTHER girl doing the school uniform and another doing the post throat-slice Mitsuko?

I find it highly redundant to have so many of the same cahracter >_<;

Ina
07-22-2003, 11:20 PM
four is abit too much for a series gathering, but i'm not against having those people cosplaying a character they want tho :\

K_Valentine
07-22-2003, 11:22 PM
I'll bring some spare weapons (from the movie and novel). If the Mitsuko's want, they can choose another weapon and be another character.

Yuna
07-22-2003, 11:23 PM
I mean, couldn't those people give up their spot this once so we can try to fill the others in the class?

Edit: LOL, my legs are in your Avatar Tom.

Edit again: Oh, I was just informed that it's only me and Shounen_Star doing Mitsuko. I retract my previous objection.

Exactly my point. *lol* It's nice being original and all, and who do I have to thank for that? *glomp*

I wasn't quite sure which BR chick I should be at first. After all, I am Asian, and I could pull off virtually any girl I want. I was thinking Noriko or Chigusa, but I liked your idea better. ^.~

Hehe...I remember having a hard time deciding whether the uniform was grey or blue. *lol*

Everytime I look at the AX image when you're lounging about eating the cookies, it reminds me, "What if Homer Simpson was in charge of BR?" *lol* It's cute. Actually, the real question, what if Pimpsugyu was in charage of BR? *ponders the possibilities*

If Pimpsugyu was in charge of BR, either
A) It'd be all boys BR'ing as the girls remain in the school HQ or
B) Pimsugyu would be no more (esp if he was crazy enough to give the lieks of Mitsuko a weapon.

If Homer ran BR...

"So uh yeah...kill eachother...and then do something else...

Mmmm..cookies...Gahhhhhh."


If Pimp$ugyu ran BR...all the girls would be held after class for a little detention! *cues music* And so the boys would have to kill eachother off. lol

Heh.. I won't do Mitsuko cuzz there is so many. ^_^ How about Chigusa (or however you spell her name)? I forget what weapon she has, but her hair style is easy to duplicate since I already have it! lol.. long hair.. down.. hmm...

I think with these costumes it's all about the weapon to tell who you are.. ^_^ I just can't remember what she has.. heh heh.. lol!

But yeah, we are all going to look similar anyway.

Yeah, but let's aim for as much of a complete class as we can!

K_Valentine
07-23-2003, 09:55 PM
OK.... let's see if I can't bring the airsoft SPAS, what other weapon should I carry? I doubt they'll have issues with my limping stick.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-23-2003, 09:57 PM
the stick would do fine,. K ^_^ since we can't carry weapons at all.
Tetsugyu:Hmm.. no problem man. I just hope I find the screenshot of him before ani-magic ^_^

Tetsugyu
07-23-2003, 09:58 PM
That Stick is an awesome prop dude. Bring Oki's Axe too! lol
If you have a revolver, the one you picked up off of Motobuchi-kun, bring that too.

Shonen_Star
07-23-2003, 09:59 PM

Ryu: Come on AIM and I'll send you images of him.

Fork! I'll be bringing a fork! Anyone need a fork?

Let's see.... I have something close to Motobuchi's revolver. Well, I *HAD* but it's Jim's now.

Yuna
07-23-2003, 10:04 PM
*is over whelmed*

Dude, I do a little thing in photoshop and leave for like, a minute, and there's a thousand new posts.. x_x

Since Revel wont let us have the weapons on the ground, we can always take insanely stupid pictures in the hotel room... chya.

Tetsugyu
07-23-2003, 10:06 PM
Yeah Nessa-chan, that's the idea. We were gonna use the guns in the room. We aren't hurting anyone if we're in the room with them.

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-23-2003, 10:06 PM
I agree with Yuna-sama on that.

Shonen_Star: Naw..that guys dies really fast lol...the teacher is cool though.

Yuna
07-23-2003, 10:07 PM
OOOOOH, has the late night idea been posed yet?

RyuHayabusaDOA2
07-23-2003, 10:08 PM
Yuna-sama: No.. but it could work! :D what's the idea about?<--stupid question, I know -_-;;

Ryuhei Sasagawa is the only guy with long hair and he is the 3rd one to get killed IIRC, XD

Hence thats why I'm Ryuhei. I'm not cutting my hair ^_^ And right now i'm trying my best to get my hands on an Uzi replica...

K_Valentine
07-23-2003, 10:17 PM
BR weapons I should have available:
-2 Colt .45's, non-airsoft (Ok, only Girls #10 Hirono Shimizu carried it but a gun's a gun)
-Coat hanger (Boys #16 Kazushi Niida)
-Plastic hand grenade (Girls #05 Izumi Kanai)
-"Poison" bottles (Girls #09 Yuko Sakaki)
-Jitte (Boys #02 Keita Iijima)
-Rope (Boys #08 Youji Kuramoto)
-Fork (Boys #12. Yutaka Seto; though I call dibs on it if I need it for dinner)

Will also shoot for boxing gloves (Girls #14 Mayumi Tendou), Bat (Boys #18 Takakatsu Hatagami), and a prop stungun (Girls #03 Megumi Etou).

BR novel weapons I may tote along include a boomerang, dartboard (I won't pack the darts though), and a toy yo-yo.

So anyone undecided on which student to be or wants to avoid the army of the Miysuko's/Noriko's/etc can stand in with the right weapon.

Yeah, they wanted to see his weapon, and when he showed the fan, they all laughed, then he stole the automatic, shot most of them, let the girl live long enough to plee for her life, then shot her too, MWAHA, Kiriyama is such a sexy beast.

Tetsugyu
07-23-2003, 10:24 PM

Yuna
07-23-2003, 11:25 PM
OMG... see, I like the quote you have on you banner, lol, I told Jarod to put it there ^^() I had to consider the size restrictions on my banner @_@ not much space...

07-23-2003, 11:47 PM
hmmm, well i guess it all balances out then.

Uh...guys, gals, I have to say this thread is getting disturbing. I don't want to rain on your parade, I feel we're getting more restrictive than we need to as it is, but your conversation isn't very reassuring. I just turned 48 today, my generation may be different perhaps, but I find no ammusement in deaths of young people. Perhaps I missed the Freddie Kruger boat back in '82. I don't know how AX handled this gathering, nor Otakon, but I gotta tell you a majority of our board is following this thread with concern.

Who's to say someone might want to reenact these scenes for real? Going out in bloody BR is not cool, folks, so lets not do this, 'kay? Believe me I love all you cosplayers, and I don't wanna cramp your style, but please moderate your plans for this venue.
And the axs and whatever, We don't even want to see that stuff in the public eye, and we're just as edgy about the room situation, but it's your room, so behave yourselves, please.

Yeah but you're the one with the great pair of...OK I'll shut up now! LMAO

And anyway I think you have the better quote. My orginal idea was "I just didn't want to be a loser anymore." but Yuna didn't like it.

Jarod, what day are you planning this again? I'm probably most likely not going to Ani-Magic for the full three days.

And I uploaded my banner. You should be happy. =p

Revell
First off, we're just having fun. There shound't be any cause for concern. We are just having fun. We don't take any pleasure in the deaths of young people. This is a movie after all. It's just make-believe. Just like anime. Trust me, there are FAR more violent animes out there than this movie. Hyper Violence is even a genere of Anime, and Battle Royale can't even considered that because it's violence is cheesey. It's real controversy is the fact that a destroyed Japanese government would do this to the youth of it's nation. It's meant to push buttons, poltical and physical.

We aren't posting to reasure you. I think you should see the film first. Maybe you'd understand the situation better. That way you won't be shooting in the dark.

I will be turning 23 on Saturday (Hey if you can plug your birthday, I can counter) and I can tell you I HATE horror films. I hate Freddy, I hate Jason, I HATE them all. They are stupid. They glorify violence and the insides of human beings, and that's sick. BR is not a horror film. It is a violent film, a sad film, a political film.

AX had no problems with the gathering. They didn't even bat an eye about it. Weapons where peace bonded and that was the end of it. AX didn't handle it because there was nothing to handle. Otakon will do much the same I imagine.

But you have made AM into a family con, and as such we will respect that and keep our BR-ness to a minimum and not bring our prop weapons outside of the room.

The board is concerend over nothing.

"Who's to say someone might want to reenact these scenes for real?" OMG...come on now. Who's to say someone might re-enact cloud's limit break? Who's to say Sailor JamBoree won't use their moon powers to overthrow Queen Berel? Come on Revell; we're dorks, not cult members. None of the weapons will be real, so even if one of us was a psycho, we couldn't re-enact shit.


"Believe me I love all you cosplayers, and I don't wanna cramp your style, but please moderate your plans for this venue."

Are plans are moderated. We are staying in our room and not bothering anyone. Ryu's comment about going to a resturant in costume was his alone and I for one will not be doing so. And I asure you no one will be brining any of the toy/fake weapons anywhere but in the room for pictures. If you don't want to cramp our style then don't worry about it.

"And the axes and whatever, We don't even want to see that stuff in the public eye, and we're just as edgy about the room situation, but it's your room, so behave yourselves, please."


I had plastic axes with me the last two years I've been to Ani-Magic. You didn't make a fus then. But that's beside the point, because the axe (if someone brings it) will be fake as well and in the room and out of the public eye. The same kinda plastic/fake props will be kept out of the public eye and in the room for the purpose of the party. We have always intended to behave. You're worrying over absolutley nothing. I bet if it was a Beserk gathering you wouldn't be worried. I think because that's anime violence and this film violence. But anyway, no rules have been broke and none will.

Well said! ^^

Our weapons won't be used in any sort of irresponsible way and i can assure you that we do not enjoy watching the deaths of school children.

We're cosplayer that are merely showing are enthusiasm for a film that we enjoyed. To quote Shonen Star:
"it's all in good fun"

>.< On another note:
Can anybody see my banner!?!? For some reason it doesn't show up on my comp!!!!! ARG! And it's really kick ass too!
