Hey there, welcome to my profile. My name is David, I grew up in Morocco and am currently studying computer science in Germany.
I like anime, reading (mostly fanfiction and fantasy novels) and most of all, coding all sorts of things, the latter being how I spend most of my free time. Or should I say "almost all of my time", because that's mostly what I do for my part time job and my university courses as well.
I also like video games, although League of Legends is the only game I play regularly.
I guess I've been interested in anime and Japanese culture in general since watching Ranma 1/2 in 2002, but didn't have any means to access anime back then (though I compensated for it by reading ten-thousands pages of ranma fanfiction - which is pretty much how I learned English), so I only started really watching anime around 2007. Recently, I've actually been trying to follow every season - not sure if I can keep it up, since I have neither the time nor the motivation. Still, I like forming an opinion for myself about all new anime without having to rely solely on the opinions of others.
The thing I care most about in anime is likeable characters. I'll watch almost any kind of anime from slice of life to heavy mecha action as long as I can bring myself to care about any of the characters. If I hate all of the characters, I don't care how awesome the plot might be, I'm just not gonna watch it.
I also think the soundtrack and voice acting matters. Good music can often save an otherwise unexciting anime for me and having some of my favourite voice actors in the cast certainly helps too.
My favourite anime of all time is The Third: Aoi Hitomi no Shoujo. For my other favourites, just check what I've rated 4.5 or 5.0 stars.
