[DISC] Shonen Hero School

Now, we all know a shonen hero who specifically endears themselves to us.

Be it the jerkass with a heart of gold, or the mech-piloting ace. Well, you get to play them. Any stripe of shonen character you can think of, from Barehanded Ki Fighter to Primary Love interest. If it's shonen enough you can find a place here.

Set in a Generic Japanese High School, for the added fun of the setting. May go to other locations though *coughcough*Tournament Arc*coughcough*.

This will be a lighthearted RP, if only because of the subject matter. I want to see your characters do awesome stuff (within reason). Giant robots, mad scientists, martial artists; all good.

Expect the genre to change each arc, with what suits my fancy. One arc may be going to the Underworld and beating up demons, the next is in SPAAAAAAAAAACE!!

This is similar to an RP idea I had a while back.

I've been watching a lot of The Law of Ueki, count me in.

To quote TingYi
Are there bishies? I like bishies?

And do they all have to be Japanese, just I got a picture of a really hot half japanese guy.

What? I can admit a guy is hot, so what, big whoop?
I've got a lot of gay friends, and I guess it has rubbed off on me abit.

I'm straight, and straight enough to be secure about it.

Also, what kinda mangas and animes are you getting ideas from?
For the tournament thing, I think the Law of Ueki does it really well, with the powers and stuff.

Can we mix and match? Like a Mech Pilot who's also a Martial Artist or some such?

No, not while in the mech. I'll leave that to G Gundam.

By the time I'm done, it'll be over 90,000. >:3 Maybe.

I'm hoping for Japanese enough, but any character with a valid reason to be in Japan. Now mind you, this is just a regular high school by title, so no "He came here to learn how to be a shonen protagonist."

It'll be like multiclassing in DnD. A dedicated Martial Artist could beat you in a martial arts match, and a dedicated mech pilot can beat you in a mech fight. You have to use both the skills in combination to the best effect.

*eyes wden and a grin appears on his face*

Forget the mech...I can finally use Kyo. Just need to tweak his background and make him a little less Shadowrun-y...

Any age limit or min age?
Cause I've got an idea for a pair of cousins, one is serious and the other goofy.

Hmmmm, ok, damn my idea has failed.
I wanted the serious one be a chain smoker, turns out it is illegal in Japan. :cry:

Oh well, I can work around that.

Screw the rules, I have Kalga.

Ever seen Romeo+Juliet, with Romeo and his journal, when he just get the news that Juliet is dead? That is what I am going for with the smoking.

And the other guy, rides a Moped, is goofy, and annoys the hell out of the serious guy.

Go watch it, it is pretty cool take on the original story.

But anyway, it is kinda like it is there and he doesn't notice it, that is how use to smoking this guy has got.

Somebody needs to figure out how to latinize that so it can be the school motto.

(Why would a Japanese school have a Latin motto you ask? Rule of Cool and the above quote.)

Name: What does your character go by!? (In the order of the native language of the name. English english order, japanese japanese order and so on.)
Age: How old are they!?
Year: What year of school is they in!?
Birth Date: (Day and Month) When was they born!?
Build: What is their body type!?
Intelligence: How smart is they!?
Clothing: What kind of clothing do they wear when not in uniform
Uniform Modifications: Shonen heroes never wear their uniform correctly! Do you have any modifications to add!?

Appearance: What do they look like! Don't be vague, or I'll be vague on whether he's in or not!

Personality: You can be vague if you like, but not too vague. A good character isn't fully fleshed out at the start, but grows into it's own. But I need to know enough.

Abilities: Why are they shonen!?

History: Anything special I should know?


More expansive bios are allowed, but they have to cover at least this much.
