Hello, I am Jake.

I’m a bachelor of business administration, specializing in accounting. In other words, I am a professional office worker! Not very exciting, but the pay is good. I don't plan on doing this for the rest of my life. I have considered studying something new (e.g. psychology or social sciences) as I am still young and have time to pursue dreams.

I usually ponder things and sometimes my thoughts won’t leave me alone, no matter what I do. It gets annoying at times, but I have learnt to live with that. I am quite a worrywart. If everything is fine with me, I spend my time worrying about others, like my family and friends.

Other cultures and Japanese culture in particular have always fascinated me. As a child, I used to watch series like Moomins and Around the World with Willy Fog, without realizing they were anime. I got familiar with anime when they started to air Pokémon on TV here in Finland in 1999. The first series I actually started to follow was Bleach in 2005. It has been a long ride since then. I have watched all kinds of anime. Some have been great, but plenty have been mediocre at best.

Watching anime is one of my favorite pastimes. There are so many anime series and films I would like to see and my want to watch list just keeps growing steadily. I'm a bit of perfectionist/completionist, so I really don't like to drop series and leave them unfinished. If it turns out that the anime I just started watching isn't all that good, I just grit my teeth and try to endure to the end.

Other than watching anime, I like to play video games, listen to music, learn new things and dream the days away. I also have a passion for books as I constantly have something to read. Of course I read manga too, but for some reason I don't like to read it online.

My favorite games are mostly platformers (e.g. Super Mario and Mega Man series) and Metroidvanias but I like puzzle games and RPGs as well. Currently, I don't own any consoles besides a DS Lite, but I haven't bought any "new" games for that in ages. I play mostly on the computer, even though I only have a laptop.

I read mostly sci-fi, horror and fantasy books. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is still one of my all time favorites. I keep a record of everything I have read in an Excel document, even though there are plenty of sites in which one could keep a record of their readings. Unfortunately, none that I have discovered are as clean and easy to use as Anime-Planet is for anime and manga.

Come to think of it, I make a lot of lists about things in my life. I have a list for anime, books, films... Even for the things I would buy/do if I ever won the lottery. I guess they make me feel organized.

5 months on anime is really amazing and it took me 6 years. I realized that I'd already watched 9000 episodes only when you left me a comment and I became amazed with the exactly number. But I wish I had learned how to watch anime before, I just started looking for quality instead of quantity in the last two years (Well, it's still hard to watch only the good ones). Thz for the comment.

Thanks for the Gregory Horror Show character submissions :) but you don't have to go through the trouble of submitting anymore because I plan on adding the rest within the next week or two. Thanks for pointing out the show though, I'm enjoying it xD
