Ok people are complaining to me that I haven't filled this thing out yet so here. I put something up here. I will put more up if you guys are interested.

I am an Otaku that came into the fold back in the 90s. Back when Sailor Moon was on early in the morning. I cam across the show when channel surfing waiting for the bus. I fell in love with Sailor Moon and watched it every day. After that I started looking for simular things and learned about anime. Back then it was more known as Japanimation. Then they came out with Toonami, you know back when it was cool? Before Adult Swim existed. and that is really where I got interested in anime and started looking everywhere for more. Years passed and I got animes from the local video store mainly until Adult swim came out and fell in love with it since it had nightly anime on and didn't have the crappy kiddy subs.

It was then that I started finding animes online and buying cheap imported animes. Yeah I know they aren't the best of quality but that is all that I had the money for.I have since gotten into torrenting and downloaded a bunch of series. I love this because I watch a series and if I really enjoy the series I can go out and buy it without fear. I was always afraid in the store cause anyone can make an anime seem appealing on the box. This way I have already seen it and know it's good. I could keep just leeching with torrents but I want to support the companies that make English Dubs so that they continue doing it. That is my anime life in a nutshell.. Only been in anime basically 15 years so longer than some, and a lot less than others.

My personal view on dubs: Some are ok and some really need to leave series alone. I think the newer dubs are alot better than the old day ones. America is finally quitting making the dubs for kids and are making better dubs. I do prefer to watch in English Dub over Subtitled anime. I prefer to watch in english with the subs on to see the difference between the english and japanese versions. Sometimes there are absolutly no differences and sometimes there are vast differences. This way I get the best of both worlds.

Hi how u doing? loving your signature with the Claymore pic its such an amazing  anime sure it left a few things unexplained n u didnt meet some of the characters u'd av expected to but i think they were planning on a series 2 which would have picked it up (hope they do make a series 2 though its not looking hopeful), i just love the ending theme its very nearly my most listened to song frm an anime :D

I get what you mean about dubs some are terrible but then again we have some amazing voice actors such as 1 o my faves Megan Hollingshead (the original voice of Mai Valentine from Yu-Gi-Oh b4 they replaced her with a country accened person tht didnt really fit Mai's character at all). often u find tht in the dubs things can be a bit better as well like in Evangelion i remember sum1 sayin theyd rather b between Misato's melons as he was watering melons but in the sub it he says breasts which i didnt think wrkd as well as the reference to him watering the melons added a bit of comedy b4 a serious battle just to lighten the mood whereas the subs wer a bit tell it hw it is. sorry about my ramblings lol i do tend to ramble on a lot

I looked up the term otaku. What a great term for us obsessive anime and game people. I think I'll start using it.

I live near Elkhart, really close to the Michigan border. We are kinda far away, but it isn't often that I find fellow Indiana people.
