Just here mainly to keep my things in order.

For a long time I stopped watching anime and reading manga because I lost interest, but now it appears I'm back. I guess one could consider me to be open to almost any genre, but everything comes down to my mood and if I'm willing to spend the time to watch/read. I have a soft spot for romantic and comedy though. "I like what I like whether you like it or not", simply put. I do prefer shorter series though, so I can finish them quickly. Once I find an anime/manga I really enjoy, it's difficult for me to stop once I start. Thus, when it comes to longer series, I will sacrifice a lot of time to try and plow through it as soon as possible if I really like it.

I'm also an avid gamer and I love collecting figures, though my collection is small. Currently learning to be a video game developer as well. 

Feel free to leave a comment if you wish to talk to me. I'm pretty friendly and up to making some friends.

In terms of movies, yeah both Summer Wars and Redline, both by the same studio, are entertaining despite little plot depth. I probably preferred Redline cause it embraces the pure entertainment factor. Then in terms of actual plot movies, there's Wolf Children of course, I'm partial to Princess and the Pilot as well. Hotarubi is a great short movie (~40 min). Also, I loved Bungaku Shoujo, it's a 3 ep OVA plus a movie. But I warn you that's very heavy, not sure if it might be up your alley. An OVA/ movie series I like is Towa no Quon. It's 6 movies like ~50 min each if I recall correctly. I found it incredibly interesting, but I've noticed some people don't appreciate it as much as I.

I can go into more details but I figured I'd just do some name dropping for now.

Also you can read my reviews for stuff if you're curious (in general, not for movies really). Um, don't read the Madoka review though cause it's completely spoiler-laden.

I actually watched a couple shorter than average (10 ep) series recently. One because it was ongoing and the other by chance. If you're interested in something quick you could try Hatenkou Yuugi. It's nothing spectacular, but it's a quick in and out. It's episodic so some of the stories are better than others. It's got interesting enough characters and the ending is solid (though, well cliffhanger-ish).

Well you can learn the material yourself absolutely, especially if you know someone that does it. There's no arguing against that. But unless you've got a major "in" (a sure thing) to get you into the business, the reality is you won't break in without a degree. Because you can tell all the recruiters you want till you're blue in the face that you can do the job, but you'll have nothing to back it up. Not to mention there's a lot more to college than just learning the material, but I won't get into that. And you would never even get to the interviewing stage cause they'll throw out your resume without even reading it when they see you don't have a degree. I mean, there are companies that if all you have is a BS, they throw out your resume without even looking at it. The job market is so competitive you need BOTH a degree AND experience to even get a shot. And forget about job advancement, I don't care how long you're working you'll never get a promotion. Believe it or not, not everything is a matter of can you do the job or how well can you do the job. Cause whether it's stupid or not, right or wrong, your education and your background are the things that employers look at when making decisions. But hey, I'm not here to tell you what to do... Don't misunderstand :).

Anyway, so I don't know if I asked you, but have you been watching anything lately or not so much?

Well it's not that it's not popular, just not as popular as it should be. I mean for god's sake SAO is still rated in the top 20 for some fucking reason. I really just don't understand why Gosick never garnered that elite level popularity it deserves.

As far as what you're studying, I mean anything computer science related is a good way to go. I tell you, when I'm looking for jobs in tech fields, 8/10 are in computer science. If that's something you can live with, that's the way to go. Lots of jobs, we need more CS people in this country, and you make good money. And that's my honest opinion. Also, you'll already have heard this but I'll say it anyway, you need a college education. If you want to get a job (i.e. not start your own company), you need a degree. And then some, in the interest of full disclosure. I wouldn't be doing my duty as a friend (or just as a conscientious human being) if I didn't drive home this point. Even as far as graphic design, there are schools out there somewhere that will specialize in that.
