PostSubject: Hi there, I'm Solar Knight!   21st March 2018, 5:32 pm

Hello, it's nice to meet everyone! Diagnosed recommended I join up, so yeah, here I am.

...Oh, you want to know more about me. Okay! ^_^

What is your name?


I'm Eric. I go by Solar Knight as it's the name of my character in an old SM RP WAAAY back in the day. Minako/Sailor Venus has always been my favorite senshi, so I created a horrible self-insert character to be her boyfriend! (I was 14. Give me a break) Actually I tried to make him more developed, basically a younger blond Mamoru but more energetic and hyperactive, and less stodgy...I guess. IRL I'm 34, happily married to my wife of five years, with a wonderful 2-year old daughter.

Which Sailor Moon media is your favorite?

Probably the original anime, I grew up on the dub everyone loves but later watched the series subtitled. I also enjoy the Manga and Crystal, and I have a soft spot for PGSM despite how goofy it can be some (most) of the time Smile Also I've seen a few of the Myu, mostly for the songs because the storylines can often be hokey and the costumes are pretty bad, haha.

Favorite Arc?

Probably R if I had to pick one, but I do like the original and S.

Any Pets?

Afraid not, having a two-year old makes it difficult to also care for a pet. I would like a kitty down the line though.

If I were a Senshi my attacks would be...

I actually have a couple!

Solar Flare Strike: Channeling pure solar energy into his staff, Solar Knight executes a powerful slash that fires a bolt of light at his enemy.

Prominence Kick: Solar Knight executes a devastating solar-powered jumping roundhouse kick to the head of his opponent.

Ultimate Nuclear Crush: Channeling all of his power into his staff, Solar Knight fires a mighty blast of energy that annihilates his opponent and possibly a few city blocks. Due to the collateral damage and the strain it places on his body, this attack is only used as a last resort.

Where are you from?

New York, born and raised!

Hobbies? Any interests?

Anime! I typically steer towards stuff with heroes or giant robots, I'm kind of a child at heart like that. If I had to pick a few favorites: Vision of Escaflowne, Rahxephon, Gurren Lagann, Gundam (OG Mobile Suit or G Gundam), Dragonball, Hajime no Ippo, Outlaw Star, Cowboy Bebop...yeah, tons. 

Apart from anime, I'm big into video games. As you can tell by by avatar I'm a huge fan of the Legend of Zelda, I've played all of the games and the Triforce is very important to me as a code to live one's life - yes, I know that sounds corny. I'm also big into RPGs like Final Fantasy, Tales, Pokemon, and Persona, action-adventure games like Mario and Metroid, shooters like Doom and Titanfall, racing games like Mario Kart, puzzle games like Portal, WAY too many games to list here.




I love to write which is where my interest in RPing comes from, I love the collective storytelling aspect of it and would love to get involved here. I've cosplayed in the past (actually how my wife and I met!) admittedly I'm not very good at it, but I love the camaraderie of it and have met a ton of friends through it. I love music and to sing (probably not very good at that either) and I also love comic books and movies - Star Wars, Marvel, DC, all of it.




Also, I'm HUGE into professional wrestling. First off, yes, I know it's fake. I more love the athleticism and storytelling parts of it. I especially love watching New Japan Pro Wrestling which is my current favorite promotion. I think more people would love it, it's like a sports anime in real life. My favorite wrestler is Kenny Omega, he's incredibly good and he's also a gigantic anime and video game nerd like me, so I can relate to him!

Welcome to the forums, Solar Knight! There's a section for otaku senshi and OCs here, and there's a whole roleplaying section as well, since you mentioned you used to RP a lot. Also it's always nice to have another gamer here. Are you more of a PC, Xbox, Nintendo or PlayStation gamer?

PS4 and Nintendo (Switch/3DS) mostly. I also own an Xbox One but that's mostly used as a Blu-ray player in our bedroom. And thanks! I posted in the RP introductions, I'll probably start using an established character to get comfortable before I bring in OCs.

I'm like 95% of a pc gamer through steam, and the other 5% is nintendo games through the 3ds. I've been keeping an eye on the switch and what games are supported for it as well as it's ever-growing library, and I'm seriously considering getting one during the upcoming holiday season if the discount is wallet-friendly lol.

Yeah, unfortunately I still use an old MacBook, which can't run much of anything, so I stick to consoles. I HIGHLY recommend the Switch though, I'm addicted to Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild is phenomenal, and Mario Kart is really fun. Can't wait for Smash Bros. this year!

Yusssss!! You made it!!!!
WELCOME~~!
And you're using the Solar Knight handle, too! LOVE IT.

First of all, let me point you to the page I always share with our newcomers: our Posting Options Tutorial! It has helped me out countless times in posting around here - especially when I was just new!

Tell us more! I don't know much about it other than that it's linked with Zelda herself somehow and can be broken into three pieces...

YES the camaraderie!! It's the part I miss most ;_;.

Another club here you may enjoy is our Music Club! We're doing a livechat this Friday night about Symphonic Metal~.

My brother says the same thing about it! How did you get into it?

And last but not least, your "homework threads" that you reminded me of during our FB convo LOL:

And that's not even getting into the PGSM Section but I could go on forever recommending canon threads XD.

Also, can't wait to see you at the GC Livestream ^_~.

Welcome to GC, Solar Knight!! I'm also a huge Nintendo fan! @cosmos, the switch is worth it. As someone who has played all of the Zelda games (I'm nowhere close to that achievement, ahaha), which one is your favorite? I love Windwaker myself, but BOTW might actually beat it out!

Also, as a huge advocate for Myu, I have to ask, which one of the musicals have you seen? While the songs in the old ones are to die for, the newer ones have improved costuming (in my opinion), and a different style of storytelling! I definitely recommend trying them out if you haven't, and, as Diagnosed mentioned, we're having a livestream which is the perfect opportunity to see them!

Y'know, Even though Cardian is pure filler, I have a soft spot for it. But Black Moon totally.

Tell us more! I don't know much about it other than that it's linked with Zelda herself somehow and can be broken into three pieces...

In the games, the Triforce is made up of three pieces, the triforces of Wisdom, Power, and Courage. All three are in balance and connected together, and one cannot live without the other two. So it's just kind of a philosophy to live life in the best way!


Another club here you may enjoy is our Music Club! We're doing a livechat this Friday night about Symphonic Metal~.


I do love my some nerd metal so I will see about joining with you guys. I'm going to see Pacific Rim that night with my wife and friends (giant robots lawl) so I probably can't make it, sorry Sad

My brother says the same thing about it! How did you get into it?

Probably when I was about 15, a friend introduced me to WCW and I fell in love with the characters and the storytelling of it. I've kind of fallen in and out of love with it over the last 20 years, most recently I've gotten really into what New Japan has been doing.

Welcome to GC, Solar Knight!! I'm also a huge Nintendo fan! @cosmos, the switch is worth it. As someone who has played all of the Zelda games (I'm nowhere close to that achievement, ahaha), which one is your favorite? I love Windwaker myself, but BOTW might actually beat it out!

Probably Ocarina of Time or Link to the Past, but I also adore Link Between Worlds, and Breath of the Wild is amazing so far. It's really tough to pick. That said based on pure content, storytelling, and other factors, I might go with BOTW! It's really that spectacular.

Also, as a huge advocate for Myu, I have to ask, which one of the musicals have you seen? While the songs in the old ones are to die for, the newer ones have improved costuming (in my opinion), and a different style of storytelling! I definitely recommend trying them out if you haven't, and, as Diagnosed mentioned, we're having a livestream which is the perfect opportunity to see them!

Mostly the older ones, usually original stuff like Shin Kaguya Densetsu or Transylvania no Mori, or basically anything with Nao as Uranus or Yuuta Mochizuki. I've listened to some of the new stuff and the music just doesn't compare, but I agree the costumes are WAY better.

Shot through the heart... my heartttt OTL XD I love Myu, though I find it kinda odd that you've seen Kaguya Shima and some of the Dracul and think the storylines are hokey. Those are probably the best of the myu stories. xD Ah well to each their own I guess. I'm just glad you've even given them a try. ;D

Hmm...I don't have much experience with the Manga. I really like how Super S is done in it though despite it being forever since I read it.

Dracul and Kaguya are probably my favorites BECAUSE the storylines aren't derivative and are fully original, but I digress. A lot of the shows have the same general structure - Usagi and friends meet some new people, it turns out these new people are evil, Tuxie saves them, Inners transform to save her, they get their butts kicked, they face off with them again w/the outers or Starlights, Usagi goes Super, they win, fight ultimate villain, Usagi goes Eternal, they win, everybody sings La Soldier.

I'm probably generalizing quite a bit and the shows aren't that predictable, but that's how I feel they often go. I kind of wish they'd use the ability to introduce new characters and other heroes rather than it just turning out everyone is a villain in the end, except for the Senshi and Mamoru.

Come to the manga side, Solar Knight. We have gruesome deaths, confusing sequences, and a compressed Storyline...
