Welcome TeamUni RP!! This is a sport anime community where characters can choose between 8 unique universities, study what they want, find a job, meet new people, go wild at the bars, sing loudly at the karaoke, but above all, they still play their favourite sport at a national league level for their university club while living in the beautiful (and improved~) city of Toyama.
ABOUT TOYAMA CITY
Toyama City is located about 2 hours west of Tokyo, hiding behind the Tate Mountains. The seasons in Toyama are very distinct. In Winter the area is covered in snow, sometimes a little too much snow, but that means winter sports are all over the place! Come Spring, there’s Cherry Blossom viewing week, graduation and while for others it’s only the beginning of their university life. In Summer everyone can enjoy going to the beach, hiking in the mountains and try to relax in the terribly humid and hot Japanese weather. And, finally, Autumn, the temperature starts dropping and becomes mild.
For more fun and rp possibilities, Toyama City was improved with 8 universities (Each of which has it’s on sports teams), 4 student residencies (which the 8 universities share) and other locations unique to the game. Each location has it’s purpose, be it entertainment, shopping, food or part-time job.
UNIVERSITIES & CLUBS
Every character will join the club they were part of in their junior or senior high (depending on the series). There are only a few places for playable characters in each club, so please join the university based on what major/degree your character wants to study rather than simply wanting to have the whole team from the series together again. Please, check the universities profiles to know what their subjects are.
All characters must join the club, it's a sport comm after all. The exceptions are:
- Female characters who were or were not in clubs in canon. They should be involved in a club as managers, helpers, cheerleading squad or coaches.
- Any character who appear in the series as a coach, manager or teacher. They will have to be somehow involved in the university life and club.
- If the character was injured and had to retire from the sport in canon. They must join the club as managers, cheerleading squad (Japanese style, not pompons and skirts necessarily) or medical.
Characters who have/had retired in canon due to injury can return to the club under the assumption that they have healed.
UNIVERSITY AND CLUB PLACEMENT
There are only a small number of places at each university that is decided by the number of places available in each team. In this way, characters from different series will be able to mingle making the game much more fun. So please, keep a 2nd option in mind for a major or degree in case the university you have chosen is full. Team captain and/or vice-captain will be decided by the mods or upon request.
The number of places per club at this moment are as follows:
- TENNIS CLUB = 5 player
- VOLLEYBALL CLUB = 1 setter, 2 spikers, 1 libero
- BASKETBALL CLUB = 3 players
- SWIMMING CLUB = 2 players
- OTHER CLUBS = decided upon interest
Every club is also allowed 2 managers (students), 1 coach (student/staff), 1 medical (student/staff). Coaches can only be students if they are studying sports at university, were coaches in canon or forced to retire due to injury in canon. Medical can only be students who are studying medicine or related subjects (physiotherapy for instance) or were coaches in canon.
The number might change depending on how many characters we have in the game. Characters are allowed to transfer to another university as song as the degree they are studying is similar and available at the other university once a place in a club becomes available.
There are 4 student residencies around the city to choose from. At this moment, students are not allowed to rent or buy their own property and must live in one of those residencies. It is probably wise and more plausible for students to live close to their university (you can check the map for information), however, that is not a requirement and it's up to the player to decide where their character(s) will live. Once the character is accepted they will be given the number of their room. Characters cannot share their room with another. They all have their individual rooms but will share other facilities. Each residence has it's own advantages and disadvantages. Please check details about them [here].
University staff (coaches, supervisors) is allowed to rent/buy/share their own accommodation. They are also allowed to rent a room in the student accommodation closest to their university.
Students are allowed to have a part-time job at these locations:
- KOMBINI (convenience store found close to unis and residencies) = Wasons or 11/7
- Hoshien Cafe (city centre coffee house)
- Captain Staggers (city centre bar) = only for students over 20
- Bendys (diner, 2 locations)
- HO MALL (shopping mall) = only jobs at the arcade and the cinema are available
- TONDEFU (karaoke)
There are no jobs for students at G-BOX Club or at any random shop at the HO MALL, however locations could be considered upon request. Students can work a maximum of 20 hours a week, 4 hours per day, 5 days a week. Work must not interfere with their club duties.
In Japan, some universities clubs compete in leagues and even in the premier league. Some players are even scouted for the national team. In this game, all the 8 universities have high level clubs that compete nationally as well as against each other. Different from reality, but for the sake of the game, all clubs will have 2 tournament seasons. Summer season goes from May to September and Winter season from December to March. In April, each school runs regular member selection competitions. Early May and November, the 8 university will have unofficial matches against each other.
No clubs will win everything all the time. Even if in canon a character does, in the game they might lose. So for plotting, logging and characters development reasons the result of a certain match could be decided between muns, however, in team sports, the result might be decided by the mobs to avoid complications. Regional, Prefecture and National results will be decided by the mods (we are yet to decide how). Note that not all clubs will end up going to Nationals but nothing stops players from one club to go and support another club of their university.
GAME PLAY & CHARACTER AGE
Characters will use their journal to connect with others online. Even if they have never met in person, they are connected via Toyama's InterUniversity Forum, which they have gained access once their application was accepted by their uni. All characters are able to see what university the other are part of, but other information is not available at the InterUniversity Forum.
You may use journals as means of private messages, phone text and email.
In Japan the academic year runs from April to March, so sometimes there is confusion about characters age. Please follow the guidelines below for CHARACTER AGE now based of canon. There are 2 ages, the younger one refers to characters whose birthday haven't yet happened at the time of application/approval, the older refers to those whose birthday have already passed.
TENPURI (all characters age up 6 years from canon)
KUROKO NO BASUKE / HAIKYUU !! / FREE! (all characters age up 3 years from canon)
1st years are 18 - 19 = must be in their 1st year of uni.
2nd years are 19 - 20 = can be either 1st or 2nd year (either because they failed entrance exams or decided not to take)
3rd years are 20 - 21 = can be 1st, 2nd or 3rd year (same as above)
JAPANESE LAWS, REGULATIONS AND CULTURAL FACTS
It is illegal to drink or buy cigarettes if you are under 20. So students do drink underage but it is rare.
It is illegal to drive or cycle if you have taken ANY alcohol. It does lead to jail time, so please avoid have the bad boys do that. No one really does it. There is a system called DAIKO where they come and take you and your care home.
Driving age is 18.
Buying porn is 18.

Luciano wants to learn to dance tango and Martin and Sebas are teachers at a dance academy, and they all know each other from university (maybe still are studying) or somewhere. Lu signs up for Seba’s classes because he thinks Tincho will make fun of him (which is probable) or something. But when Lu goes to the first class it turns out Sebas is ill or something and Maritn is the substitute teacher. Martin is surprised to see Lu there because he didn’t tell him and “why is he in Sebas’ class, I’m the best!” (you know how he is) and he asks him this (but actually Tincho is just jealous and a bit hurt that Lu chose Sebas’ class) Lu is also surprised cause he was expecting Martin to make fun of him not be offended. But they don’t get to talk much because the class has to start. Anyway Lu stays for the class but plans on dropping anyway but Martin convinces him not to do so cause hey! Lu is actually not bad at it. And again Lu is surprised that Martin is sort of praising him, in his own way. So he keeps coming to classes, and Martin can’t help but stare fascinated at Lu dancing for longer than the rest of the students including whichever girl Lu is dancing with, and Lu notices how passionate Martin is about tango and then one day Martin makes a demonstration and for the class and he’s soo good at it Lu thinks it’s beautiful. So that day, by the end of the class Lu is the last student in there and so he and Martin talk and he tells him how cool his dancing was and Tincho tells him that he can be almost as good as him one day, and that he should enter competitions. Lu laughs because he thinks he’s giving him too much credit, and Martin is like “no, seriously, you can make it. Come here” and so he and Lu dance together (with or without music) and when they finish they kiss because they totally have the hots for each other. And then they go to one of their apartments and have sex.
Anyway they probably start dating, and Tincho says they should enter a competition together and Lu is like “But I’m just a beginner!” and Tincho is at a completely different level. But Martin says it doesn’t matter they can enter a smaller competition and he’ll take care of it and prepare Lu cause Lu has potential. The truth is Martin doesn’t care about wining he just wants to dance with Lu (but of course he won’t say it) <3333
*sigh* This is what happens when the Argentine government is more interested in sports than in important state matters.
All CFK has been doing in the last moth is ruin our diplomatic relationships. Ok diplomatic realtions with UK are never that good because of the whole Malvinas/Falkland thing but was it necessary to add fuel to the fire? Besides this was outright offensive.
I feel sorry for Fernando Zylberberg because I'm sure he didn't know the details and it wasn't his intetion, I mean, no olympian would want to offend the country where they'll be playing the olympic games. Besides he did not know the ad would be used by the government (he doesn't even support Cristina's party).
Funny how the ad was offered to many channels and they rejected it but the government didn't *facepalm*
"...We should make a complaint to the Olympic authorities and Kirchner. But she isn’t the sort of person who will listen.”
Even they know it.

ACTA in a Nutshell –
What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.
Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.
