How does your avatar express you?

Postby Hatori » Tue 02.20.2007 10:26 pm

Hello! :D
Uhmm... I can't remember if there has been a topic like this from a long time ago; and I was wondering:

How does your avatar express you? Are any of your previous avatars similar?
---

What I think about my avatars.... Uh, normally they show my hilariously fun side. With my friends, I'm considered "the leader" and I sort of organize and start our own little fads.

My current one is of "Hachi" Nana Komatsu from the anime and manga hit Nana (The title speaks for itself. :P). I'm a lot like Hachi people would say. I'm fun, overexaggerated, and I just love my romance crap. :-*
All of my avatars are usually from video games and manga because it's sometimes refreshing to get away from real life.

I lent my Cowboy Bebop dvds to one of my friends. He watched them and told me 'That main guy reminds me a lot of you' which I took as a tremendous compliment since Spike's probably my favourite character out of all the anime I've seen... and he said 'I didn't really mean it as a compliment, he seems a bit depressive...' but I didn't take so much notice of that last bit. :P

No one can say no to lovable Tora.

Plus I founded the White Hat Club.

Zen's avatar is the first thing he would see upon openening his eyes in the morning.

well, I finally succeeded in loading my avatar, thanks to an innocent question (and answer) I had never thought to ask.

So, it's self explaining.

My old avatar was Rally Vincent from Gunsmith Cats; chosen because I have enjoyed the few manga I have read and Rally is one of the only light dark-skinned anime characters I have seen.
My new avatar is me.

My avatar is a tanuki with a white hat, because I consider myself a member of the White Hat Club (I am. Ain't I, kea〜t?)

My previous avatar was a tanuki without a white hat. My first avatar was Link from the Legend of Zelda series, because I like the games.

Have you ever seen one of the films? EVERY WOMAN IN JAPAN said no to lovable Tora. ;)

I enjoy MST3k and the Internet often causes me to go, "Buh?"
It's also noted that I didn't make it myself, providing [true] implications that I am horrendously lazy.

Hahaha! Well... that's true.

I guess it's a constant reminder to be as lovable as Tora, but not nearly as rejectable.

Mine is Zant from Twilight Princess, I chose him because he was really cool, up until the end when he started acting like a third grader...
Before that I had Pious Augustus from Eternal Darkness as my avatar (before he turned evil). That game had such a cool storyline that I just wanted something to remind me of it.

I would put a burning hippo up as my avatar, but editing pictures to do that is harder than it looks, especially since all I have to do it with is Microsoft paint :|. Well, I think I might have photoshop or something, but I have no idea how to use it.

I've been obsessing over Majora's Mask lately...(I JUST beat it a week ago...with the Fierce Diety Mask acquired after 7 years lol. I couldn't figure out what to do for the life of me when I was nine, it was a lot harder than OoT, but when I went back to it recently, everything started to make sense and I was like Doh, I was a stupid nine year old :D). So my avatar might change to something representing that game...
It's definately the most original Zelda game in the series. Finally something that doesn't focus on Ganon, the Triforce and saving Hyrule/Zelda ne.

Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)
