This profile is pretty outdated, proceed with causion and question everything I say.

Or don't ...I'm a profile page, not your mom

Well hello there, my name is John (in Dutch it's Jan, but the english version definitely sounds 10x cooler). I'm a 19 years old anime lover who spent way to much time on anime and gaming.

A little history of me and how i got involved with anime

I've been actively watching anime for around 2 years now. Before those 2 years I had pretty much only seen pokemon, digimon, crayon shinchan, dragonball Z etc... So, 2 years ago I was only rewatching dragonball Z over and over again untill someone from class said he was watching naruto. By then I already heard of naruto and thought it was stupid and a dragonball Z clone. I still decided to watch it and thought it was awesome. From naruto and I went on to Naruto shippuden and then bleach. 

Near the end of bleach another classmate told me to watch Sword Art online. By the time I didn't really know anything about anime season and such.I started watching Sword art online weekly. To fill the rest of my free time I also strated watching shorter shows from youtube (shitty dub versions because i didnt know any better). Around the time I joined anime-planet and it's forum. Throught anime-planet and the forum I was able to watch so much awesome anime that I'd never have been able to watch before.

About me

As said in the above, my name is John. Currently I'm studying at the university of Delft in the Netherlands. Besides my studies I'm very involved in waterpolo. I've started swimming lessons at the age of 5 and never stopped. After I finished those lessons I got into waterpolo and never left. I still enjoy waterpolo a lot and I do not plan on stopping anytime soon! One of my other hobbies is gaming. I played a lot of call of duty on my xbox, but since I made a gaming computer I've been playing Tera rising for months now. I do have other games, but Tera has been taking all of my time so far, hehehe.

Favorite anime

So far I've watched a considerable amount of anime and I do have some favorites. The one who gets most of my love is Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann With the Epic/manly/badass male character, Kamina.

Some of my other favorites are:


Clannad After Story

Daily Lives of High School Boys

Angel Beats!

Attack on Titan

Hajime no ippo

Usagi Drop

Pretty much any show with a 5 star rating


My ratings are mostly based on enjoyment. A show can be shitty, but if I enjoyed the heck out of it and couldn't stop watching then it's worth a high rating.

JohnWatchAnime says...   It would be nice to have saterdays and Mondays off, sicne those are the days ill be most busy.  I can start whenever you want to, so just give me a heads up when you assign my first names.

Funny thing, I'm answering lots of my profile comments now playing catchup since I usually do them every day, but I'm almost a week overdue this time because I've just been so busy this past week... anyway, I found your comment the next one I need to respond to right after I read your PM to me!  LOL  I thought that was a fortuitous coincidence! *grin*

Anyway, I'm super excited to have you back and I'd love to get you started as soon as possible, so I'll reactivate you again starting next week (Sunday, Apr. 17) unless I hear back from you that it won't work for you.

Thank you!!!!

Would love to have you back aboard doing WECO greetings again as soon as you let me know what days are good for you, which days you want off...

(If the timing is still not right for you, it is ok for you to stay on hiatus now.  I'd rather have you away and planning to come back than coming back before you are ready.  I want you to have fun doing WECO welcomes!)

JohnWatchAnime says...  Yo Sianeka, I'm doing good lately. The spring period of uni has been coming to an end and had some exams and stuff this week and last week. Next to that I bought Black desert online and holy shit, that game is great. How have you been doing?    Back on topic, since my exams will be over after tomorrow I'll have some more free time. So sure, ill pick it back up again ;)   Good to hear lots of people or signing up to anime-planet. Just put me on 5 names for now. I'm still receiving the google drive documents with names and stuff so that's pretty convenient :D   Signing off,   - John

Soooooo happy to hear you can come back!  I miss you!    I hope you are successful with your exams and have made some decent grades!  Good luck.  

I'll reactivate you with 5 names per day to start - you can always change later if you want - as soon as you let me know what days off you need.  (Your previous schedule was Mondays and Wednesdays off.)

(I'm not familiar with Black Desert online but it seems to have awesome graphics from what I can tell!)

It'd be so awesome to have you back, you are one of the Charter members of the group - one of the very first people who ever joined WECO back when it started!

Hi - it's been awhile. How have you been?

Just checking in with you because it's been a while since we chatted and you were on my mind because it's been crazy busy in WECO with record numbers of new members signing up on the site.  So I was wondering if you have time to become an Active Greeter again, even if you are only available a little bit.  (Even 5 names one day a week would help!)

If you can't do it at this time, that's fine.  But I thought there'd be no harm in asking, just in case you can.  Cause it would be so helpful to have more Greeters helping out these days.
