    yeah, forgot about commenting that part

    who's that with ichigo's sword? is that gin?
    interesting move.

    off topic: latest naruto episode from DB fansub is out, and so is the latest bleach from lunar anime fansub.

    well some moves, not all tho.
    maybe if anyone has The Last Samurai dvd, we could analyse moves from there, hehe

    Same here! If I'm not wrong, there's a dual wielding sequence we could try out

    there's a LOT of dual wielding sequence.
    now thats an eg for how to make it look gd AND realistic at the same time.

    But the moves are pretty fast during the movie, so I don't know how you are going to catch all that.

    nah, its not impossible. epi3's cheography is closer to impossible rather than last samurai's. and i remember some of the moves even.

    Unless there is a way to slow the playback of the DVD? I think it's possible, just that I'm not sure how.

    my dvd player can go frame by frame . but its not practical to learn those moves. unless you got time to burn.

    GAH! IF ONLY I SAW YOUR MESSAGE BEFORE I DELETED MINE!!

    nvm i'll retype it again.

    You know, we're kinda limited to normal sabers, double-bladed, and dual wielding right? I found a website with other saber types

    www.theforce.jaymach.com

    we could try a lightsaber staff

    i know this would be pretty hard to make but i won't hurt to throw it in as well

    All DVD players have the ability to go frame by frame.

    Jazz, if you're talking about the mac player, yeah it can it done. I do it all the time. though it takes up loads of power.

    I'll show you on Fri.

    =)

    Sithspawn - parents are much more in favour of the study side. Oh well. Maybe I could squeeze in some time during the Sept hols.

    I'm only at episode 20 for the Bleach anime, but am following the manga. Currently waiting for the chapter 180 scanlation. Nope, that's not Gin, although they look similarly freaky. :p That's (spoiler for you anime-only people) Ichigo. His other self, something like that. I don't watch Naruto - I was told the manga was better but I didn't find the first few chapters particularly great so I stopped reading and never got around to watching more than two episodes.

    The wrist sabre reminds me of Psylocke from X-Men. :D

    well we might be staying and practising again after 6.30pm. we might a dinner break first, to allow crovus to drop by after work, before we continue. and yes... i cant confirm if i cant get there by 3pm.

    i will authorize xeno, david, mike and yazid(if ur up for it) to supervise training. when i come, i'll prolly just lecture a bit.


    off topic:
    naruto manga is better than the anime, but the fight scenes are better watched on the anime, more detailed and elaborate. dun let the first few chapters/episodes of naruto smoke u, its much better than the first few, and much more serious as well.
    ooo ichigo's fighting himself? wtf?

    whooops if DE can't make it, there goes my attending it, too...

    :( sorry...have fun! teach us all the wonderfully choreographed moves some time soon. :D

    Jediscum - looks like studying will have to come first for me too, then. not to worry, we'll learn those nice little fights and have a mini duel on our own during archery one of these days... :D

    If you guys are gonna wait for Crovus and are still practicing when I finish work, then maybe I'll join you later... I'll sms Xeno when I finish work to find out where you all are, OK? :)

    I'll be there for support, and in case any other ladies wanna join in too, and don't wanna be the only one there... maybe can join me when I go there later.

    Faiz - Want to defer responsilibities to me? I don't think these reckless jedi can be controlled. Well I may end up late too, but don't worry they can take care of themselves.
