I've been known as Shino and Kai-Rin (most recently Yuki) and still plan to remain anon to a degree.
A gamer at heart, specialized in FPS. I enjoy long walks on the beach (LOL), love anime, read/collect manga, love Jp Pop/Rock/etc. I am an anime collector, I buy wallscrolls, posters, PVC models, gashpons, etc. Of course this is only the series I favor (or if they have hot chicks! ^_~) I enjoy harrassing certain individuals on IRC (such as Maryu, Yuuichi, Hiyono) because it's entertaining. I love sothis, cus she's so my type of gal... did I mention she looks tasty? XD~
As for how the anime thing all started:
I first started to notice anime during elementary when a friend of mine showed me Fushigi Yuugi back on VHS. However, I didn't really start till my 2nd year in Jr High. It started during the DBZ fad when a friend told me about NGE.
I became quite obsessed with NGE at first, however, after a couple months I began looking for more anime to feed my lust. Later, I eventually stumbled upon Love Hina (or was it.. Vandread) in which <person who wishes to remain anon> started using IRC to obtain fansubs.
He -eventually- joined IShin-Digital/Anime. Through him, I met various IRC members, also anime fans, via games. Such as CS, (Headless Cow, Chibi-wing, etc) and that led to Talesweaver followed by RO, where I met others (taiyaki, Shin-san, etc.)
Basically after that time I began staying on IRC and have somewhat become a permanent resident in a particular channel. Since then, I've been obtaining fansubs and haven't really lost total interest in anime. I'm still fairly hardcore, just not as hardcore.
This pretty much concludes my memoirs. *stabs you in the back of the head*
