Gonna try my best to do something about that convention. biggrin.gif

No plans yet, but maybe a little sight-seeing? Not sure where we could go, but if we can get into the Calgary Tower that week, then we'll go (the view is amazing from up there). Banff is rather far and it'll take up nearly a whole day (plus, I don't quite know how to get there).

We're planning on recording some duets for the Karaoke! thread, too. laugh.gif

Why? Naruto just got licensed....wondering how soon, ANBU will stop doing their fansubs.
love_me_destroyer
-It's getting harder and harder to bootleg anime...Damn.
alchemist x
What do you mean bootleg
blueices
Since its licensed, fansubs are officially illegal (like what happened to FMA)

Usually upon license, the good Fansubbers back out and its hard to get the rest of the series subbed.

suppposedly Aone will stick with it (pretty sure Anbu willl drop out though)

If all fails, there's dattebayo

- Had a 5-hour block of anxiety due to mei's memory failing her.
- Thankfully, the scholarship that caused such anxiety was turned in on time. @__@
- She had to get a letter of recommendation from one of her teachers today, and was able to read it before she turned it in with the scholarship stuff, and it nearly made her cry. *__*

viz/shopro entertainment. naruto isn't going to be a good dub. how the hell are they going to say the names correctly? and if any of you have witnessed the viz naruto manga, "art of the doppleganger!" and how exactly do you translate "-ttebayo!" or "dattebayo!" mad.gif

-X seems to have copied the Mods. sigs. I guess he wants to pretend to be something he's not.
-Everyone has their place.Not everyone knows where it is... (HINT, HINT!!!)
mei_tenshi
X didn't copy the mods' sigs. He copied the GP's sigs.

Which doesn't make it any better, but hey--he can copy whoever's sigs until the original owners tar and feather him for it.
xrninja
yeah, i copied the mod's sigs (but i took it off when kase and quisty became mods, to prevent confusion). tongue.gif

- No. I can't be. Naruto is licensed?! They better make it a good dub.
- Who is it licensed by?

viz/shopro entertainment. naruto isn't going to be a good dub. how the hell are they going to say the names correctly? and if any of you have witnessed the viz naruto manga, "art of the doppleganger!" and how exactly do you translate "-ttebayo!" or "dattebayo!" mad.gif
[snapback]114582[/snapback]



sighs...dubs= misspronounced names, monotone dialogues, censoring of mildly suggestive stuff. (I can already see them changing Ino's name to Stacy) mad.gif

This is the kind of show I can see them trying to sell to the Pokemon/DBZ/Yugioh crowd....which makes me really really peeved...since inevitably things will be cut and screwed up.

If this show ends up on the WB or Fox I might spontaneously combust (either of anger or laughter..I don't know which) laugh.gif

edit: btw NarutoFan comments are really funny right now...they're a mix between panic, anarchy, idiotic support of dubs and who knows what else. laugh.gif

Interesting stuff. And about the whole Naruto coming to US in all forms...

Thoughts:
-What did you expect? It happens to most decent to good anime... (hopes he doesn't see FMA commercials for toy products on Sat. morning mess)

-Maybe I should ask bryantq if I can be the Official food distributor of the forums...

-I wonder how many people have me blocked...

-That DMC3 trailer is pretty sweet... *goes back to wesite to see it again* I'm kiddin'...

What in the world prompted that? ph34r.gif
blueices
I think to her 15 might seem a very very far away time, so she doesn't see it as an issue (no need to panic, yet) laugh.gif
ἀρχή
My daughter always says everything will happen when she's 21, but now that she's turning 5, she's become fixated on 15. So it's become common for her to say that everything will happen at 15. She's also said she won't get married, but just have a baby and her baby's name is going to be daniel blink.gif
blueices
Ah, she wishes to avoid that troublesome thing called marriage? laugh.gif
She's wise beyond her years.

Random thought: Found out today that 60% of manga readers in the US are female.
(I knew the number was high, but that high?) Interesting.

dry.gif Great, I'm a minority in one of my hobbies as well...

Thoughts
-My dinner had a overly fishy taste. bleah. Wonder how that happened?
-Why do mainly girls read manga? Blueices, did those statistics come with reasons?
-I wish my emotions had a plug or switch I could pull every now and then... So annoying...

What's odd about that statistic is that out of all my friends, I'm the only girl that reads manga/ watches anime. So usually I only talk to guys about such things (go figure.)

But when you hit forums, you see a female majority (Perhaps guys gravitate to forums about StarWars and Cars?) blink.gif

As for why the statistic...well I think the fact that its a US statistic is one point.
A lot of manga I see in bookstores are aimed at girls or it could be aimed at either guys or gals. The statistic also doesn't incorporate unlicensed manga or people that read it online.
(For example the legions of Naruto fanatics that read Inane's translation for example)

edit: It's not even 11pm and I'm done with econometrics (does victory dance)
Will celebrate with brownie, coffee, and John Stewart. biggrin.gif
