Entry Requirement:

What do you mean entry? What a stupid question. There is no G-G.

The G-G Coin:
As a sign of your loyalty to the clan, every member is given a small gold coin with a cockroach emblem and two holes in it, one in the center and another in the upper right. Flipping this coin in the air causes the wind to whistle through it in a very particular manner, which summons G-G members to your side. It is also used for identification purposes so you're not the victim of an 'accidental' dismemberment. Clan members are wise to keep this possession on their person at all times, as you are considered just another plebeian without it.

The Gokiburi-gumi is infamous not so much for their technical skill or prowess as a band of fighters, as much as an unwieldy, unstoppable horde of insatiable human locusts. Brutal brawls, high-stakes gambling and women (or men, there are quite a few Gokiburi women as well..) fuel their desire.
Their numbers are rumored to be endless (which is where the clan name originated from), which is a good thing, as one of the major credentials for entering seems to be recognizing life as enormously expendable if you aren't tough enough to keep yourself standing.
Despite their unruly behavior and underhanded methods, their loyalty to the leader of the clan is as thick as their heads. The oyabun, Ree, is not to be disrespected unless an individual fancies seeing how far their thumbs can be thrown for distance.
If you have ever seen a shady figure in a village alleyway selling ill-gotten goods, you've likely witnessed an enterprising Gokiburi hard at work, keeping the organization thriving. They take business very seriously, and trust you to do the same.

Of course, as with all things.. the clan is not entirely what it seems. Rumor has it they are a front for something far more sinister, and much, much bigger..

Join the Gokiburi-gumi today. >8D We keep you alive for less.

Now I'm so jelleh. D: This is just too awesome for my own optics to even comprehend.

I'm a complete retard, so please bear with me:

If I got into SDL, there would be no requirement for me to join the Gokiburi-gumi, is that correct? Just state that I'm a part of it in the character profile, and if I pass the audition, I'm in?
FoxNede Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2010
Prolly need to take Gu Ronin offa here. He bailed and joined up with the Inari-Dan
A-Takai Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2009

audio-heartradio Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2009

willabarkson Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2008
dangit. you say open then say closed. Make up your mind!
Forgottonswordsman Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2008
is it still possible to join the gokiburi-gumi?
OAZ Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2008
*possible n00b/tard moment*: I'm confused. it says the G-G has 'closed its doors', but then it still invites you to join...
..izz'is thing joinable or not?
AngelofHeaven13 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2008
Would it be possible for a duelist to steal a coin from one of the members? Like a trophy of sorts but with intentions of using it later to potentially cause harm to entirety of the group in the interest of dishing out some old-school justice (one member at a time working up to the top)?
sugardropped Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2008
Do you know when you will be opening back up? I was gonna try to join before you closed but I procrastinated 'n yeah~
snargo Featured By Owner May 3, 2008   Digital Artist
Shouldn't I be on the lst? :(
endlesseternity89 Featured By Owner May 2, 2008
0.o i'm getting confused... you said at first "Entry Requirement: There are none. The Gokiburi-gumi has closed its doors..." but then in the end you said, "Join the Gokiburi-gumi today..."
i was just planning on seeing the possibility and the requirements needed of my oc for this team... are you still accepting or rather will you still accept members in the future???
animelovingfool Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2008
Could I perhaps use this team in my SDL manga? I want to sorta integrate it into my story... I will, of course, ask each member for each OC I use... and you to use Gokiburi-Gumi. If you refuse, thank you for your time anyway!!!
SankofaRida Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2008  Professional General Artist
Is there a opening for a new member? if so, Can Miss Lotus join?
Nightfrost-Icefang Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008  Student Digital Artist
Hey, I'm going to be joining the SDL soon..
Are positions in the Gokiburi-Gumi still open??
Bladnoched Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2008
Why not get one of your associates to open another SDL on their account, so all us addicts can join? *hopeful smile*
ClosetExtrovert Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2008
Ya know, with so many people wanting to join I'm not surprised you had to close it off... Still, it'll be fun to read up on the G-G's exploits!
MonchanDesu Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2008
oh, so I guess I can't join? It looked like such a cute group.
vantn Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2008

TokenJin Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Eh! D:

I'm guessing when you say that the G-G has closed it's doors, you mean no one can join right?

( Sorry, I'm a little stupid.)
Bunnygirle26 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2008  Hobbyist Artist

Ophelion Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2008  Hobbyist
This team seems so much more... robust compared to all the other teams I've seen. :XD:

I wanna join! I'll get working on it soon... Do you have a limit on how many members you're accepting?
ayattousai Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2008
i want to join!can this be considered as an entry?
Endling Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2008
I think this will do just fine. >:3 Consider Yashirou on the team. I will update the journal and banner shortly. Glad to have you aboard!
Demonchild1988 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2008
I haven't quite been accepted yet (but i have high hopes.. medium hopes? Little hopes I can become a member :worry: ) But I like to think ahead and also i like to think of myself as a born storyteller. There's a story forming in my head, and becoming a member of your clan is apart of it. I'm not a brillent artist. I'm stilll learning but i love to draw..... Now i am rambling, sorry!
Anywho what I'm asking is with the "hitting of Rex as hard as i can in the face" Can that be a comic? Or is it picture only?

Of course upon asking this i have a lot of stuff to do first before i can set the story in motion..... *mysterous arm waving*
Endling Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2008
Comic or single picture or sculpture or interpretive dance. XD It doesn't matter.
Demonchild1988 Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2008
Demonchild1988 Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2008
Just to say I got accepted. YEAH! ..... I say "yeah" to much.... *cough*
Demonchild1988 Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2008
