Welcome to my profile stranger!

Me and anime had an almost accidental encounter back in 2007. At the time my life was undergoing a slight transition, certain habits had to change and I was in dire need of a distraction. One friend of mine suggested I watch "Robotech". I once caught a glimpse of it on TV and liked it so I went ahead and watched the whole series. I moved on to the original Macross series and then to Ghost in The Shell since Sci-Fi was and is one of my favorite genres. And after tha I just kept watching. I do not consider "Robotech" an anime, but it was what got me started.

I discovered Anime Planet sometime early 2008, at the time I was searching for sites with anime related content. I started building my anime list since then, using the recommendations to try new (completed) shows which I watched at steady paces until recently. These days I mostly watch ongoing series as soon as they are released, sometimes too soon! This habit of mine eventually lead to me getting involved with Anime Planet, something I was not really expecting, with the help of Twitter which brought me in contact with Sothis.

Which brings me to the community here. My social skills aren't very good, so it's difficult for me to make friends. As far anime goes, I prefer watching them rather than posting a comment in endless threads and although sometimes I do want to make a comment, I prefer Twitter for that job. Hence, made no friends in AP despite being here a while.

One other thing that happened because of anime, I started listening to anisongs (anime OP and EDs) a lot. The past couple of years 90% of what I listen to are comprised of anisongs. My iPod is full of them and so is my cell phone. I listen frequently to anime-nfo radio and I never miss a weekly anime song radio show on a UK streaming radio station with a real presenter! You can also find me on last.fm:

The above banner is clickable if you want to see my profile there.

As far manga goes, I follow a few of them, mostly mainstream stuff. I keep my main list on manga-updates so my list here is probably not up to date, but I intent to sync them from time to time.

Other than that, I know a few seiyuus and a few major anime studios but I do not delve in the otaku land more than necessary. You will not find collections of figurines or stacks of limited edition DVD/BDs in my place.

What you will find, are DVDs of shows like Star Trek and Babylon 5, shows I loved at the time they were airing (expect the original Star Trek, I was not born yet!). I'm a big scifi fan and most shows I watch that are not anime are scifi US shows. My other interests are the IT world, personal computers and smartphones. I sleep in the same room with a running PC for 15 years now, then only thing changed is that the PCs are 2 now. When I'm in no mood for anime I usually end up messing with my Linux server, trying to improve it.

As you have already guessed, I have no life. I'm just another nerdy otaku with few friends, and if you made it this far reading this boring tl;dr profile you must be really bored yourself!

Er, well, I guess the more anime you watch the more your opinions change, which I sort of feel sad about... > - > I like being naive more, so I was happier not realizing the flaws in my favorite anime! Wait, is that even on topic? Anyway, I like Shana already because of Shana herself. I love characters like her!

Aaaand I think that Kanon 2006 will just always be one of my favorites too! It's just my retarded opinion but I think no matter how much anime I watch, there are just some I already have watched that I will love forever! I LOVE KEY ANIME! Well, I didn't like Clannad's adaption, and Air wasn't good until the ending, but I really love Kanon and Angel Beats! I HAVE THE KANON BOXSET! ...I'm a nerd.

O-other than anime...er, what's your favorite flavor of ice cream?! O:<

Oh, I forgot about Shana's third season! Well, I haven't actually watched the first two seasons yet, but I just started on it. Just as in the first episode is loading on another tab this very moment~ o u o

I also dropped Mirai Nikki at first, but got back into it eventually and finished it. And this is going to be the first time a manga I like gets adapted and I'll be able to watch it while it's ongoing... > - > So, that's probably why I'm too excited for it.

I'm sort of sad that Fate/Zero won't have Archer and Rin in it though, but I'm still excited for it! And...yeah. I have no idea how to stir up more conversation! D:<

You say something!

Gaaaaah! I haven't been watching a lot of those! I've for some reason been watching the lame, not very good series... But, I like the two "Kamisama" titles, Ikoku Meiro and Usagi Drop. Other than that... Well, I'll get to the Penguin anime and others sometime soon!

But I really can't wait til the fall season! It has two anime I'm sooo anticipated for! Fate/Zero and the adaption for Mirai Nikki!

 

ACK, I'M TALKING TOO MUCH! D8;
