| *Kimiko's point of view*
It's time for the show.
Oh my, look at all of them!
Stagefright creeping in.
*Megumi's point of view*
What was that loud noise?
Please do not lean on the glass!
Such stupid fanboys!
*Fanboys' point of view*
Murmur and murmur.
Oh my, is that really her?
Oh please serve me first!

But please, if you are going to post in here bring a haiku with you! Thanks.

| Ah, I see. And yes, it was a compliment.
Time for the buildup
I feel so damn excited
Now wait for Monday

| Great! All four of them!
I almost hate to ruin the quality by adding my pitiful attempt, but...
Most excellent work,
But Fred still thinks that it sucks.
What is with this guy?
or, (very simple Japanese translation):
If I'm going to do bad haiku, might as well do badly translated haiku.

| Put up or shut up
Speaking of things we know not
Asking for trouble

| I've got another one.
The jaws that bite, claws that catch!
Beware the Otaku!

| Father forgive me
I knew not what I wrought
They're not innocent

| she goes through the door,
like a lamb to the slaughter.

|Posted by: NekuraEtowaru Mar 11 2006, 11:52 PM|

But what about poor Kimi?
They no longer care

| Piro-san grows a spine
Fanboy perverts form a line
It's asskicking time
|Posted by: TechnoPenguin Mar 12 2006, 01:47 PM|
| Nice one, quikwit
Maybe Largo will stop by:
What's with all the hassle?
Some fools drooling for a girl
Bah, beertime for me.
And greetings to my english teacher...

| Deer in the headlights:
Facing terror o'erwhelming,
But by her own choice.
|Posted by: Haldane Mar 14 2006, 07:28 AM|
| She enters the room
Their hungry eyes watch the prey
Ravening beasts crouch
Hey AncestralHamster, are you finally back? You've been missed since November. I regret to say that the Renga faded away 3 or 4 weeks ago due to insufficient posters. Mae and NekuraEtowaru occasionally helped to keep it alive, but our efforts were insufficient.

| many crazed men waiting.
to what end goes Kimko?
has Piro a plan?
|Posted by: 1man_army Mar 14 2006, 09:26 AM|
| ok, here is my FIRST attempt at a haiku... so dont say it sucks, because i already know that.
She couldn't have
She just walked out.
Why are they so crazy about her?
Here I go..
Off to fix what i said...
|Posted by: l33t n1nj4 m4st3r Mar 14 2006, 09:37 AM|
| i'm not going to say they're bad, just a question. do you know the format for haiku?
(5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5. or at least follow 17 syllables.)
so the first one is fine.

Sacrificed for their appetites
On the altar of duty.
For a litle while at least, but every time I take one of these long sabbaticals from the forums, I'm less active in the forum than when I left. As such, I won't make promises that I can't keep.
Yes, I saw that when reading the Piro renga yesterday, and I appreciate that the three of you tried to keep it going. Keeping the Piro renga alive was an uphill battle, since even when there was greater interest, Piro simply did not have the drawing power that other characters did. People wanted to write about Erika, Kimiko, Ping et al and so there was no need to boost flagging enthusiasm.
With the Piro renga, often it seemed people felt writing something for Piro was like pulling their own teeth, and so it moved slowly (even allowing for the new guidelines). It might have been a different story had it been about Miho instead.
