I've been watching anime since many years; I started with shows like Dragonball Z (the show that got me hooked to anime), Pokemon and Digimon on YTV channel. Little did I know then that so much more (and better) anime existed out there!

I enjoy all kinds of genres, but I tend to lean towards person-in-a-strange-world, post-apocalyptic, adventure, martial arts, survival, fantasy, medieval, melancholy, slice of life, romance and shoujo... I'm less fond of shows like Air, Kanon etc with super stereotypical girls and cliche storylines with atleast one girl who's really stupid silly and makes strange sounds all the time or the shows where a guy suddenly has a girl make herself at home at his place and 1/2 the show consists of your usually accidental nudity-ness and face-inbetween-legs... I'm not too fond of mecha/pilot shows either unless they're decently realistic and followed by an engaging plot. Comedy's always good, unless it's the repetivite guy-falls-onto-girl-accidental-groping stuff. But really, anything that has a great, unique, thought-out storyline. Let me know if you come across a very realistic show with little plot holes and cliches, with a thought out and thought provoking storyline that I haven't seen.

I prefer Subs over Dubs any day, and I never rate anything lower than 2 or higher than 4.5; That's just the way I am... I also become quite the critic in face of a show that has a weak story and many plot holes, especially when it's a more serious series.

I have a deep love for anime music. Some anime OST's that I really enjoy: Hirasawa Susumu, .Hack, Death Note, Tsubasa Chronicles, Code Geass, Fate/Stay Night, Naruto/Naruto Shippuuden, Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni & Kai, Full Moon Wo Sagashite, Shakugan no Shana & Second,Basilisk, Asian Kung-Fu Generation, Uverworld,  TM Revolution, Clannad, Kiyoharu, D. Grayman, Rocky Chack, L'arc En Ciel, Ghost in the Shell, Eureka Seven, Maaya Sakamoto, The Pillows, and I really enjoy Minoru Shiraishi's performances (and his troubling relationship with Akira in LS ^.^)

It's hard for me to choose a Top 5 list, but lets just say Death Note, Mushishi, Nana, The Twelve Kingdoms, and Samurai Champloo. Other shows that I really enjoyed that didn't make my Top 5 list, in alphabetic order: Basilisk, Boogiepop Phantom, Claymore, Fullmetal Alchemist, Haibane Renmei, Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni & Kai, Kino's Journey, Kurau Phantom Memory, My-Hime, Ouran High School Host Club, Paranoia Agent, (Peacemaker Kurogane), Towards the Terra, Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. I've yet to make a proper, thought-out top 5 list.

Just in case you're wondering, the girl in my avatar and signature is the awesome Sunako from Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge!

When I'm not watching anime, I'm baking healthy vegan recipes for my blog http://nocrapdiet.wordpress.com, making one-of-a-kind jewelry on Livejournal (gemstone_jar), listening to AnimeNfo Radio, and planning crazy adventures and roadtrips across Canada. If you're looking for any cosplay jewelry or clay character keychains, ask me and I'll see what I can do! =) I'm interested in cosplay and I've made a costume for someone before, but I have yet to cosplay myself. I'm waiting to find a character that I look very similar to.

I really liked Champloo. Better than I liked Bebop IMO.  My sister doesnt think I'm a weirdo, yet. lol. But she did seem a bit disappointed with the ending of FMA.  Next time I go home Im going to let her see the movie.  So I guess here views on the matter are still on the fence.  I finished Code Geass and I'm in the middle of Season 2.  I am really enjoying this anime and will be purchasing this one too.  It's defn. going in my Top 5.  (Unless there's a big upset in the ending of R2).  So what are you watching now or recently?

Um, about my webpage, lol.  I shall never show the world until It actually gets some actual decent content up on it.  As far as those expensive projects go.  I designed some long transfer tables to move large steel blanks.  They get put in Induction Heaters that heat them to cherry red hot in about 22sec.  Then they go into a 5000 ton press.  That's the beginning stages of making a Truck axle.  My design was more robotic and able to do various products rather than just one. (Thats about as good as a description as I can do without starting to sound like a textbook, lol)

I hope the "rubber thingy" improves your archery.  You can have the wind blowing in your face bother you.  Thats suppose to be a +.  Make it more dramatizing.  About the bugs, can't help you there. lol  What range are you shooting at?  (And obviously getting bullseyes.)

I've never been on a sailboat.  I've been on just about every other kinda boat out there in the seas, but not a sailboat.  One of our Hobie Kayaks that we take to the beach has a small sail on it.  But its nothing I'm sure to sailing your own Sailboat. I cant imagine doing so on one as large as 36 feet!

I love Medevil Times  (Particularly the warfare side)  We have a small festival here at the college (In fact, I think its coming up soon)  But its mostly just music and food.  I checked out the site, Ill do a little more reading on it latter on.  I would really like to see some re-enactments.

As far as the jewelry goes; have you thought about owning your own website? As in domain wise.  You might want to look into the Google Advertising too.  You specify some keywords and your site will pop up to relevant searches and your're charged a fee (That you specify how much) by how many times its clicked on and linked to your site per day.  Just a thought.

After I finish Code Geass R2.  I'm watching Death Note. And BTW you need to get on the forums more often. :P
