I was hooked on Anime after watching the Sci-Fi channel back in the 90s and never stopped watching. After Toonami stopped showing the Ronin Warriors/Sailor Moon/DBZ block, I moved onto Adult Swim, TechTV, web accessed content, and now Netflix. I'm big on sales, discounts, and clearances to gather up the best (and maybe some of the worst) titles I can find! Anything has a price where it can become an impulse buy...Muwhahaha.
Anime Music Videos were a big part of my life starting in the early 2000's and continued for a decade or so. Several won Best in Show, Best Action, Best Trailer, and WTF awards at Anime Detour and Daisho Con. My closest friends also joined and formed a little production group where we could plan meetings for video games, anime, movies, parties, conventions, and all kinds of backyard crazies. I believe it was one member that once said we "came for the videos, but stayed for the friends".
I reguarly attend Anime and game conventions in Wisconsin and occasionally venture out to MN and IL. ACen 2013 is a go this year! I'm a huuuuuge fan of Vocaloid (so sad missing Anime Expo 2011!) and started collecting Hatsune Miku a few years ago. Keep them boxes coming, Japan. ^o^
Always open to meet new and awesome people. We chill and hang out with some NES, SNES, N64, PS2, or whatever new consoles just so happen to be on the market these days. Star Trek marathons and the best, worst, newest, oldest movies make up our DZX Mystery Science Theatre 9001 weekends. Back to the Future and everything Internet make an appearance. ;p
