    I've just removed some of the worst cases of spam in this thread, please could people not post "thx" and single word posts and simple agreement posts.

    The Rules Are Here

    Anyway, interesting guides. I've learnt about suffixes while studying Japanese, this guide will help those watching fansubs who don't translate them.
    Thanks for the avatar Amoo :3

    Here is another helpful link I came across a while ago:

    Sadly, most younger anime fans don't seem to pay much attention to the people behind the anime. Some know who Miyazaki is, but thats often it. Most of the names on that list is people you should know who they are, as they all helped define, create and shape the industry, from animation and storytelling techniques, to defining and creating genres.

    The wiki is also really useful for people that are interested in fiction and storytelling, and might even write their own. So any writer of fanfiction or original works inspired by manga an anime should find a lot of interesting material to read, and it even has a nifty anime section:

    Default Name of Animated series

    I am un-aware if im posting on the wrong thread and im not a huge fan of anime, i do enjoy it though. Question im sure someone knows the answer. From what i remember when i first saw the show it took place maybe 10 years ago...anyway There were 5 brothers? One was red (main character) orange, green, black, and blue, not power rangers if thats what ur thinking, animated series im sure of that the red one had a white tiger, i remember also during one of the seasons if only there was one, the red one had to free his other brothers from different areas. They each had different weapons, they looked samarui. Thats basically all the info i know, so please someone help! lol need 2 know what the name of this series is called, thank you in advance =P

    Whoa! What the--?

    I didn't know that my little thread gained this much attention from the staff. Thanks for the link, Lowell, and thanks for mentioning the contributing posters. BuddyLee in particular was a big help in keeping the whole thing accurate and understandable.

    Hours later...
