Hi!

The Onigiri (Crunchyroll's affiliated Member written e-zine) is on the hunt!

What we're hunting?

Car Enthusiasts!
We need a new article writer who knows a bit about cars!

Think you've got what it takes to be the car staff writer for The Onigiri?

Send an E-mail to [email protected], or submit a sample article to [email protected]

Or PM:
S_j_b
Animoo_x
Dusterbayala
Luciel
Edsamac

Let us KNOW!

Or drop your questions in this thread, and we'd be HAPPY to answer them!

Thanks a BUNCH!


Edit: To be honest with you guys... the car articles are up to whoever wants to write it. I know a little bit about cars, but nothing that i could write about (i can fix my own fender benders and gimme a haines manual and i can TRY to do anything! WOOT! - girl power, i'll tone it down now)

We want to add a Cars Section to the Oni, we are actually wanting multiple articles per issue pertaining to Cars... ANYTHING about cars..

Tips and Tricks - Car fixes in a pinch! (or how to fix a car for the unknowing motorist!)

How not to get ripped off at a shop

What's the best Engine

The coolest new stuff for after market body kits!

How to increase your HP, and gain that tiny bit of torque you were looking for

Drifting: It's not as easy as it looks on TV

Safety in Racing

Rally Racing, the top drivers in the world! (sorry i used to be a rally driver)

*siren* Oh crap, that's a cop.. How to behave when getting a Ticket.

Just a few ideas, feel free to expand on those thoughts!
It's fair game! (only needs to be written in English and with proper enough grammar that the Editors can fix the Grammatical errors)

What will this "writer" be writing about in particular? I'm just curious. There are several knowledgeable people on here, including myself, but are we willing to use their spare times to write an article? Who knows. This is an interesting concept though. Possibly give some sample topics and see what comes up after that.

What type of car enthusiasts are you looking for; a person who is opened minded to all cars or bias car enthusiast who only reviews Japanese Import cars; a driver who has experienced many cars that have been driven or a person who hasn't driven anything at all? If possible, could you write out the requirements your asking towards car enthusiasts?

And...how much is "a bit about cars" does a car enthusiast need to know? Presumably history on cars and where they come from. Unless your looking at reviewing car Anime, Manga, and Games like Initial D and Gran Turismo.

I'd write an article, but you probably wouldn't get much from me. I'm a hardcore Nissan guy and all you'd get from me is: "Nissan is better than..." Yeah...

Also: "What's the better Engine" I believe those questions are best left to opinion only. With the right amount of money any engine can beast another. >_>;

How about, "What to look for in a used car?" That could be a question asked.

example: If your looking for a 4WD or AWD vehicle like a Subaru, look for uneven tire wear, that can show if the car's slightly bent or twisted. And, for any used car, check the insurance or accident claim policy to check if it has been in a major or minor crash. Trust me, used cars can have broken or bent chassis and even check for repairs that are or aren't fixed correctly.

hey! i'll probably just go as a writer.

LIMESCALE RUST GROUND IT DIRT!! CELIT BANG CELIT CELIT BANG BANG!

rust in major places is a problem, if the rust is minor and just somewhere not likely to cause a problem then it is semi fine.

Clean title is a must, just ask for all documents and what not

if your looking for a PROJECT then it doesn't matter how shitty it is! most ppl start w/ a entirely piece of shit shell w/ rust all over it and end up making it nice (only the insane)
