Basically, I'm asking who would you like to see profiled.  Give me some ideas and maybe I'll do it.

People I'm planning on profiling

Naoki Urasawa- manga ka of Monster, 20th Century Boys, and Pluto(Yeah, I know I said I'd do this before, but I mean it this time).

Hideto Matsumoto-  lead guitarist for X Japan.

Hideaki Anno? Yasuhiro Takeda? Yoshiyuki Sadamoto?

In order; Director of Evangelion, Founding Father of Gainax, Manga-ka for Evangelion (each person has done much more).
I fell off the wagon and now I can't stop.

XD

I know who they are.  I was actually speculating doing Hideaki Anno, but last time we talked about profiles Tama mentioned how he wanted to profile people who were less mainstream so we could get more traffic that way.  (The reasoning behind that was if people were looking for someone specific and we're the only site that's profiled him they'd have to come here, if he's profiled in too many other places then they could easily find out about him somewhere else.)  Hideki Anno is definitely someone I'd like to do eventually.  Of course, Yasuhiro Takeda might be under the radar enough (compared to Anno) to meet Tama's specifications.

Good suggestions.  :)

That's not what I meant, DK.

I do not want to profile people who are almost "unknown" to the mainstream, and someone who "zero people" can identify with, a.k.a Evangelion's manga-ka and GAINAX's founder. I don't care about them, and you probably don't, too. It's Anno that we want to talk about.

BUT a good example of what I want is Naoki Urasawa. People know his works, they are fairly curious about him, yet they know NOTHING (and we can't find nothing, heh) about him. If we can get it together (quite impossible), then, "Good profile!" it is.

I think doing Hide is a very good idea. He had an interesting past.

yes, hide's death made a bunch of people in Japan go bonkers...."Hurry go Round" rocks...-GS

Shinkai Makato, Horie Yui (<3!!!), Satoshi Kon... a few names I can think of off the top of my head.  If we still did manga, I'd suggest Barasui, even though he's ever only done one thing in his life (Ichigo Mashimaro).  Why?  Because his music taste is unbelievably superior!

Actually, ever since you enlightened me about who the **** Shinkai Makato is, I've been thinking about doing a profile on him, or at least reading up on him a bit.  We can still profile mangakas because most manga gets turned into anime and the anime is mostly based on the work of the mangaka (hence my wanting to do Naoki Urasawa).

Naoko Takeuchi! I possibly wouldn't be here today if it weren't for her.

The members of CLAMP might be quite interesting, as well.

I don't think we can do any manga-oriented profiles anymore, since we want our profiles to have some relevance to what we are reviewing. It would be nice, but other people should have priority, such as filmmakers (if we have a film section), producers/directors of anime, seiyuu, and musicians.

Ahhh, I see. As for musicians: Ayu, of course! I mean, what site would be complete w/o the over-rated JPop diva?!

All good review sites should have a profile on Rumiko Takahashi, please.

I think it would be nice for NHRV to do a combination bio/interview. Get Press access at a convention, get an interview with a good guest, and write up a biography of the person as well as the interview piece.

Of course, in order for this to work out, you'd want to be able to interview someone worth writing about. I don't think a lot of big guests have been announced for cons next year (at least not that I've seen yet), but it's worth a shot, and it would make a nice piece. Do a bit of research on the person before hand so you can use your interview time to ask them about things you weren't able to find out about online.
