Well considering that this group has so many members, we figured it'd be nice to meet you all of you.
So an introductory thread for the reader-chans who has supported us all and and the roleplayers.
So I guess I'll get the ball rolling .
The name's farispie and I have been a gintama fan for about 3-4 years now. I happen to roleplay Gintoki through a whim to be honest. The group was looking for a Gintoki and I basically thought to myself "It wouldn't hurt to try . Why not ?" . Mind you, I had no RP experience at the time. So sorry if I make any reader-chans cringe .
I also generally like mystery/fantasy animes, RPGs, etc. I also read visual novels and like sci fi.
I am Middle Eastern in background,but I basically lived in Ontario,Canada for the most of my life.
So how about you folks ?
|Finished Rewrite. Pretty amazing read, recommend it to all.|
Since I suggested we start the thread, I'd better respond right away to support the effort. I know a lot of the other RPers because they're regulars at Yorozuya Soul, but I'd like to get to know more of you, and also, there are the mysterious Reader-chans who read silently and vote in polls, from whom we wish we'd hear more. If you're a non-RPing member, please come out from the shadows. We'd love to meet you.
So I RP Sasaki Isaburou in this group, am a relative newcomer to it, having been lured here because so many of the other Yorozuya Soul regulars RP like Faris, RP here.
At 29 years old, I'm one of the oldest members of the group. I'm a history nut, and am really into the history of the Bakumatsu, the Japanese historical era Gintama parodies. I write fanfic. And ah right, I'm a Canadian and extremely attached to Tim Horton's coffee and donuts. That last point is very important.

Time for me to reveal myself to the readers too I guess ^_^ I hope some readers say hi too. We'd all love to meet you (and like to hear your thoughts on how we do in the RP)
I am called Zuur4 here, a typo I ran with, my name on Yorozuya Soul is Captain Katsuura. Either way, i'm always called Zuura lol. I have a thing with typos due to using an ipad, so I have basically typo-nicknames for everyone I know XD. Even though I can be a bit of a sadist when you first meet me i'm actually a nice and helpful person, though my humour can take a while to get used to
I normally seem to be an attention seeker at times, but in real life am usually very shy and keep to myself. I let myself be a bit more outgoing on the internet which is why I decided to take up RPing here, more on that in a sec. Obviously I love Gintama and Katsura is up there among my favourite characters. This is probably because like him, I dont make much sense at times XD. Aside from the humour, what I like most in Gintama is character portrayal. I find each of the characters interesting and they all feel like 'real' people, with their own quirks and ways of approaching life challenges. I hope that made sense to someone ^.^
Outside of Gintama, I love RPG games and games in general i suppose, and a Sci-fi show called Doctor Who. It was showed to me as a kid by my parents and I found it interesting. Since the show came back in 2005 i've been a big fan of the new and improved series ^.^. Also I seem to have things in common with the current protagonist, the 11th Doctor XD
So, I came to be here via Garis (oops, Farispie lol) who was talking about the RP group. I came here with zero experience, and so far I seem to have done a decent job. I hope you reader-chans find my posts at least mildly entertaining or interesting ^_^
So yeah thats me ^.^ . I wrote a lot more than i meant too lol
If I bored you guys, homna sunma son m(.___.)m
Runs away before he types any more about himself

Yo all. I am the newest RPer here. My name is then00b12.
I am very shy and discovered Gintama when flipping through a monthly JUMP issue in the summer of 2008. I became an instant fan.
I am roleplaying as the Shogun but I have no authority in real life. OTL.
I try very often to be too funny. So if my humor falls flat in any of my posts, I apologize from the bottom of my heart.
A warning to many people that do not know me, I have grammer issues. (That was intentional)
See how I tried to force the joke?
Another warning, according to some people, I have weird ships (pairings) that I have for Gintama (Like Zenzou x Hinowa for example).
I often start a new paragraph for no reason at all.
But here are a few things about myself:
>Avid basketball fan (I play it too)
>Watches few anime (So I won't be able to relate to a lot of the things you talk about)
>Likes Some Mainstream Music (Don't kill me for being a hipster)
>Joined Crunchyroll about a year ago but didn't really do anything
>My age on Crunchyroll is a lie
>I am very new to this Roleplaying things (and like the Shogun) so I will be clueless to many terminologies and fancy things like this ~~~~~~~
>Random fact: I speak Chinese fluently so I usually am able to read the Chinese raws when they come out.
>I also write fanfics, yes people, I do. I'm on Fanfic.net with the very same username you see on the screen to your left that bears the head of the Shogun.
That's it for now. I shall now lurk back into the shadows.
|Why do I look so pissed off? Well, for one, I have a beaver on my head.|

And now..... here comes the man you've all been waiting for! :)
Kondo Isao (近藤 勲)
Ok guys, my name is Santi-kun. As you can all see, I RP Kondo-san here :)
There's not much to say here about me. But I would like to extend a huge thanks to all of the members who support us! All you reader-chans are awesome!
I love Gintama and I do all I can to make this group thrive. RP'ing is a lot of fun and it's made me some awesome new friends.
I guess some quick things about me:
HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY THE GROUP!

... Isn't this thread a little late?
Yo, I'm Me-chan (known as Takasugi around here), I've been a Gintama fan for about a year and a half now. I'm teenage writer, sadist, huge Pokemon fan, history nut in training, lover of rock music and fangirl with questionable moral standards ... and that's about all there is, ahaha...

Heya, I'm runnerup78, but feel free to call me runner-hakushaku (lord), or runner-sama. Just kidding, runner-kun is also acceptable. As some of you are aware, I roleplay Shinpachi in this group. So what can I say about myself? I'm kinda a tsukkomi artist in real life as well, I like rock and metal music, play the harmonica and read and watch LOTS of anime and manga.
(here's my current anime list: http://myanimelist.net/animelist/runnerup78 )
(here's my manga list: http://myanimelist.net/mangalist/runnerup78 )
(fyi, the list is kinda incomplete, all of those manga and anime are rather the tip of the iceberg, if I remember more, I'll post it there, ha ha)
I also play a LOT of games, preferably PS3 and PS Vita games, though I also play the Nintendo (3)DS. Oh well, A-Ano, I think I said most what needed to be said... u-uh, feel free to buddy me, as long as we talk occasionally, and uh, DONDAKE!!!

Hello. I am Sanchez2007x1. I'm 24 yrs old with a loooooooow tolerance for alcohol, but thats not important. I've been watching Gintama since 2008. I like mainstream anime and I used to like JUMP till it became paperless.
I've been Gintama roleplaying since before I started watching Gintama. The first character I was tho, was Mitsuba. After that, I continued RPing from time to time by just winging it lol (http://comments.deviantart.com/4/7541764/2079167923)
Ok OK, I'll stop showing off now. but yea, i'm grateful for all the friends I've made thru RP.
Anyways, I'm a crybaby in real life, not a eccedentesiast like Otae. Also, I am much more ill than I appear. *fast forwards* um... my favorite manga is yamato nadeshiko shichi henge. Um... chris patton is awesome... and I'm a Mabinogi addict. And I'm an Ironman fan(NO, not because of RDJ >.>)
*adds runner on MAL*

Yo there.... Name's Sovereign, but I'm much better known as Toshi.
I've been into the Gintama series for a mere couple of years, and ever since, it never left my list of favorites. As member of the CR community, I'm mayhaps a veteran, bout 5 years estimate, and despite the social drama that goes on round this site, I'm constantly in here for the sake of convos, animes, and bein with buds.
RP-wise, I don't consider myself an expert. I've been invited into many RP groups before, but never accepted any. Gintama RP was never an exception. I later dabbled into RPing, after realizin that my brain's goin in a rut and hence, I jump from horror to action genres... whether it be some heroic character, a soldier, a menacing creature, or maniacal villain. Anythin' to keep me busy.
By the time I took interest in Gintama itself, those existing RP groups for the series have met their demise..... until this Gintama Universe showed up, and was personally offered to play a role that completes all irony (not to mention the fact, that I've been usin' Hijikata Toushirou, years before joinin the group).
As for real life aspects, I'm still called as Toshi due to coincidental attributes in both physical, personal background, and according to others, including mental. As much camaraderie I'd offer, I'm a private man. I work my ass off close to extinction, and even if I seemingly sit still, my mind never rest. Words such as "nap", "vacation", and "boredom" are far-off concept to me. I don't mince words, especially when it involves the welfare of those I've strong ties with. And even if my convictions are as ironically similar to Hijikata, I'd still walk my own brand to prove an existing difference.
- pause - ............ - grins -
........... Aaaaand to answer what's on your mind, that's a yes. I eat mayo in most dishes ('cept desserts and drinks), smoke my zigs, and if you haven't caught the obvious towards the end of this description, Otaku Tosshi's still alive, LOL.

What's up people?! Everyone's idol, Taylor-chan, is here! LOL
Ok, where to start? Let's see here... Well, I roleplay Kagura here in the group! I am pretty much a regular girl. I like girly stuff, but I'm also into some tomboyish things like video games and watching sports on tv.
I've recently gotten into the whole Star Wars franchise (Thanks to Santi LOL )
For those of you who may not know, Santi-kun (our Kondo-san) is my BEST FRIEND in the entire world. We've been through thick and thin and we have a deep bond. Make sure not to be mean to me, or he just may come after you LOL. But really, he's a very nice guy
Well, I think that's all there is to say for now. Hope I get to know all of you! BYE
Taylor, you're into Star Wars? W00t! My first fandom! And I've been getting interested in it again lately, due to Sparticus working on a Gintama/Star Wars crossover. Star Wars brings back all the feels for me.
Confession: I wrote terrible Mary Sue Star Wars fic as a teenager.

Hello lovelies! Do forgive me if I'm nervous, it's been a while since I've role played on a forum instead of just messenger.
Anyway, I'm beautifulnightmare19 and I hope to be playing Sadaharu for the group! My best friend got me into the Gintama series and we've been addicted since. Im 20 years old (will be 21 in may <3) and ive been an on and off member of crunchyroll for about 3 years. I've had a bit of experience role playing other games and anime but this will be my first shot at Gintama, so if I do something wrong or weird please let me know so I can correct it ^.^
In real life I am a full time university student going for her BFA in digital design and photography. I play women's rugby for my school and I work as a Freelance photographer. In general I tend to come of as a rather shy person but I respect everyone and will be the first to fight for someone if they're in trouble.
I'm really excited and I can't wait to get to know all of you

Hey everyone, my name is Sam and I role-play Kawakami Bansai here. It's been good to be here and read all of the RP's so far. You guys are doing a great job. I guess I can tell you a little about myself. Like I said, my name is Sam. I am an avid Gintama fan. Bansai is definitely one of my favorite characters. I was born in Ontario, but I now live in Victoria, BC. I am half Japanese on my father's side... kind of a weird combo I know.
I also am not your typical anime fan since I find that I dislike a lot of anime and like only very few. Anyways, I hope that we can get along.
Oh-ho-ho-ho! Canada! Oh this is too perfect.
*takes Sam aside, whispers: You see, we are organizing a Canadian takeover of Gintama fandom. We like to call it the New Kiheitai. Don't let Santi know.*
Seriously, though, looking forward to RPing with you. Bansai has a cellphone for sure, so I can send you emails! You're just a time zone over from both me and Haitch, which is very convenient. If you've read the Mr. Donut filler, we've hatched a joint Kiheitai-Mimawarigumi plot to kidnap Elizabeth, so we'll be looking into developing that into another storyline some time.
