Hey there! I'm just another otaku/gamer. When I first saw this site years ago I thought it looked fun so I made an account and started playing around with the features, mostly the mylist. Now I keep up with this and my anidb list regularly.
Here's my anidb
I've been into anime since I was in 5th grade which was back in 1998-99, so it has been over 12 years now. heh... Unbelievable how time flies! I started with the Toonami block of the time on american TV. Back then it was still hosted by the CG Moltar from Space Ghost! hehe. I really got into Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon still an old favorite of mine). Robotech/Macross was also in the lineup around the same time and that became my favorite anime of all time though in the past year or so I've been debating about that with myself and want to rewatch alot of my favorites to see how they've stood the test of time.
So anyway I mostly watched the TV anime at first, but soon enough I started seeing Anime ads in my gaming magazines. (I was a huge gamer then, more on that later) So the first one that really jumped out at me was Sakura Wars. I saw the ad and I was like, you mean there's cartoons like this that aren't on TV? lol, a newb I was. I saved some cash up and went out and bought my first anime VHS at Suncoast (I miss those stores), volume 1 of Sakura Wars. It was like 25-30 bucks for 2 episodes. You can get a 13 episode series on dvd now for that price, funny how far things have come huh? So I loved the tape and ADV films always showed these awesome anime previews set to music at the begining of their tapes. Most of the previews on the Sakura Wars tape became my early anime. Among them were Sorcerer Hunters, Dirty Pair Flash, Legend of Crystania, Gunsmith Cats, and Debutante Detective Corps. Those were fun days. I still love watching old OVAs.
Anime always took a backseat to my gaming untill about 2005 when I started working and buying more and more DVDs and started watching fansubs as well. Around then I started considering myself a hardcore otaku. Now I do the figures/conventions and everything. Today I enjoy anime more then videogames!
So I still love videogames too. Always have. My favorite genres are Tactical RPGs and Puzzle games. I also look into most any anime style game and I like alot of 2D shooters like Gradius.
Some of my favorite games are Tales of Symphonia, Phantasy Star, Ys, Puyo Pop, Tetris and Tetris Attack, Gradius III and pretty much any game by Nippon Ichi, especially La Pucelle Tactics and Disgaea! I also love old school Mario and Sonic games. (I don't much care for the newer Sonic games)
I also have a Backloggery for any gamers out there to check out.
Well I could go on forever but I'm gonna leave it at that. Thanks for reading my story!
