@Kuro_San: Can I try to explain the importance of being original?

@Galenbeta: Well the reason to be original is that it helps create of feel that this site is it own little universe different from the manga and anime we watch and read. Also while copying some stuff from shows isn't a problem its kind of cheap to have your entire character be one big glob of parts series. Also when you do that you just say that they have it and don't explain anything about it. Now that in itself is a bad idea since not everybody have seen the same things as you. Here is one tip though when creating a character try to see if you could picture it being in its own book, movie, manga, etc. In its own world outside of the vice and separate from other characters. If not you may need to rethink the character.

@Masterofdeath: That's very accurate, excellent!

@Galenbeta: Originally this forum was build under the premise of original content only, at least it was like that since I started almost 3 years ago. Just recently the animeverse have started. Most of the players here feel pride on our work, as the ideas come from us and the characters are reflections in some parts of us, thus we like the characters and we like them to grow and individual characters unhindered by other people ideas. In conclusion, I dont really mind if your character is a ragtag of different animes turned into a Marty Stu (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MartyStu) but my main problem is the inclusion of such character to the original world we forged through years and years of effort. I love this forum and I love it specially because the Original Content, as I love it for that reasons is my wish that others love it for the same reasons.
