Zetsubo Billy OOC

Post by Leviathan on Fri Feb 19, 2010 5:45 pm




Zetsubo Billy [Billy in Despair]

For entire his life, Japanese-American teenager Billy Nakamura had been told that dreamers never prosper. Yet, on the eve of his 16th birthday, all his dreams seem to come true as he is accepted into the prestigious (and private) Ashcliff Academy of Music in Manhattan, New York. An aspiring piano player, Billy's ultimate goal ever since he was a lad in Tokyo is to the join the world's most famous and talented group of musicians, The Phantom Philharmonic. Upon moving to Manhattan, Billy will live with his incredibly lazy, private investigator father and work under him as his paid assistant. However, dreams are thrown askew it seems, as his first obstacle is the expensive tuition that the Academy requires and threatens to make waste of how far he has come. Now he is on the hunt for a second job, accepting odd jobs here and there from his colorful cast of neighbors, friends, rivals, and even strange old men obsessed with cats. But all is not well in the mean streets of New York. In the middle of a vicious gang war, the headlines scream of the brutal slayings of students occurring throughout every learning establishment in the entire city. All except for Ashcliff. Nicknamed "The Nightingale", the elusive killer has claimed the lives of 12 music students and managed to avoid any chance of capture. The killer's only trademark, is the Saint-Saen's opera The Nightingale and The Rose left playing on a loop wherever he strikes. As rumors fly off the handle of the Academy's impending doom, Billy ignores them focusing only on his goal. As the Nighingale slowly cuts his way to the Academy, the dreamer holds his head high in the clouds flying above the fallen.

hey we should do ranks:
Warlord: The Warlord, or Overlord, is the highest-ranking member of a gang. Warlords are usually older, more experienced and better fighters than other members. They must also be level-headed and have a good knowledge of combat.
Warchief: A Warchief is a gang's second-in-command and often acts as leader when the Warlord is absent or if something bad happens to the Warlord.
Lieutenant: A gang's lieutenants are the third-highest ranking members. There is usually more than one lieutenant.
Soldier: A soldier, or full member of a gang is a low-ranking but official gang member. This is the most common rank that members rise to.
New Blood: A new blood is a newly-recruited member. Every gang member must go through a period as a new blood to prove themselves to full members of the gang. Certain gangs will reward their members with a vest or patch when they complete this period.

Yes, this form of Japanese writing is known as Romaji and they aren't sounding the way they are written all the time, like Kinpaku is pronounced Kin-pack and the ou in Zetsubou is what the Japanese use for the sound of O, if its is not shown with ou then the chance is more likely that the o has no sound. and when you have double vowel you only sound it out like there is only one vowel there like Birii you pronounce it like Biri(Beer-E) and Iza is pronounced as E instead of I-za. so when it says Zetsubou za Birii Iza rinri you sound it like Zets-U-b-O za Beer-E r-E-nr-E, you understand now?
