Welcome!

... to minekura_rating. ^.^ Please read the following, w00t w00t!

Q: What is minekura_rating?
A: This community is like many other anime rating communities, except you are to rate someone as a character from one of Minekura's manga. Simple, really.

Q: Which manga qualify?
A: There are all ready two Saiyuki rating communities, so we do not include any form of Saiyuki characters in this rating. But you can use characters from her other, just as great works: Wild Adapter, Araiso, Bus Gamer, Stigma, Just!, Brother and Honeycomb.

Q: Who is Kazuya Minekura?
A: Kazuya Minekura, for one, is the penname of a famous manga-ka who appeared on the scene in 1993. She was born in March, 1973. Minekura's most popular work is quite possibly Saiyuki, a revamped, hipper version of the half-true story, half-folkore Journey to the West. Another popular work of hers is Wild Adapter, the story of nihilist young man who finds/befriends a boy with amnesia and a cat-like hand. She also came out with Shiritsu Araiso Koutou Gakkou Seitokai Shikkoubu [sort of a spin-off with the two main characters of WA in school], Bus Gamer, Just!, Brother and Honeycomb.

Minekura is known for her wonderful usage of UST, or Unresolved Sexual Tension. Most of her manga is very slashable, and in some cases, she doesn't mind pulling some strings to plant naughty seeds in your head. ;) Though most of her work is merely hinty/slashable or just plain non-romantic/gen, she has shown her shounen-ai side in Just! and, if I do say so myself, Wild Adapter/Araiso. Rumor has it she wrote some slashy Wild Adapter fanfiction; one person has kindly translated these fics and put them on Fanfiction.dot.

Minekura is a very unique artist, with her own, unique styles. She also runs her own website [in Japanese only] called Nitro.

Any other questions? If so, please ect them to optical_nerve or snapple.

Now, time for the rules!!

RULES
1.) Read and abide to the rules. If you're reading this, you're on the right track.
2.) There will be no negative activity in the community. Taunting members, picking fights, or just being a regular dumbass for attention/amusement is forbidden, even in comments on people's applications. If you have a problem with someone, take it outside the community. I will let you off with a warning, but do it again, and you're banned.
3.) We cannot stress just how important voting is. You do not need to be stamped to vote. PLEASE. If you join this community, we highly suggest you stay active. No votes, no community. :''(
4.) The amount of votes is subject to change. You will need 10 votes to be stamped. No ands, ifs or buts.
5.) Bold your votes. < b >your vote < /b >, just remove the spaces.
6.) Some people may sound like more than three or so characters. Please narrow it down to the top two.
7.) I've noticed that, when one person votes one way, everyone else does the same thing. Is this because you just don't know who to vote them as? Please do something to let us know that you're not just going with the flow, like screening your comment, or explaining why you voted a certain way.
8.) Fill out the application with intelligence. Try to be as detailed as possible. And don't fill it out trying to get a certain character.
9.) Please, please, please don't try to be like a certain character just to get the stamp. That's really annoying and just plain stupid. Why join a community to find out what character you're most like if you're only going to act like someone else to get a pretty stamp? Laaame.
10.) You are allowed to make a public post asking for more votes--but only once. Constant nagging will get you banned for spamming up the place.
11.) Advertising is fine if, and only if your community has something to do with Kazuya Minekura, one or more of her works, or is a rating community much like this one.
12.) And once again, here's your final note to NOT VOTE USING SAIYUKI CHARACTERS. If you want to be voted as a Saiyuki character, then mosey on over to saiyukirating and/or saiyuki_rating.
13.) If you have questions, comments, complaints, whatever, please don't hestitate to ask. But preferably, go to optical_nerve with them.
14.) To prove you've read and are willing to follow all the rules, you must put "Minekura-ize me!" in your subject title of your post. Without this, you will recieve no votes. But I or the co-mod will kindly ask you to change it/go back and read the rules. If you don't change it within two consecutive days, your entry will be deleted.

APPLICATION

All the HTML has been done for you (LJ cuts, bolding questions). You can change it around if you want, to make it look cool or whatever, but please don't change the actual questions. If you do, we'll know, and your application will be removed. You can, however, remove the "Note" near the end of the application.



STAMP LIST/CHARACTERS

The following is a list of characters with stamps. Stamps are not shown because there have been instances in rating communities where people take whatever stamp they want and use it, whether or not they have been voted as that character. This list should also help you when voting, but if you don't think that a person is like any of the characters listed, you can use another. Stamps will be made for others eventually.

Wild Adapter/Araiso
(key; $ - W.A., @ - Araiso)

Makoto Kubota $@

Just a reminder! Not all characters and manga are listed here. These are just characters with stamps thus far. You can still vote with characters that DON'T have stamps, but bear in mind that images for Minekura's lesser-known manga are hard to come by, so a stamp might not be made immediately.
