Konnichiwa! I'm Billy (but feel free to call me whatever you want) and welcome to my profile! ^_^
I was born in England on Feburary 6th but moved to Wales in 2012, and since then I've started watching anime quite a bit! :3
It all started when I didn't know what to watch, so me and my best friend Connor (frankstleConnor, go check him out, he's a great guy!) sat down and watched the Fatal Fury films. Since then, I've gone on to watch a hell of a lot more anime like Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist and over 200 other titles! My biggest achievement is watching the entire Bleach franchise! :P
And what is my favourite, I hear you ask? That would be Fairy Tail! I love it because of the animation, soundtrack, comedy, and fun characters!
It's also where I laid my eyes on Mirajane Strauss, the white haired barmaid. It was love at first sight and to this day she remains mai one and only waifu.
GAH! SHE'S SO PRETTY AND CUTE AND PERFECT <33
Some of my other favourites are Gurren Lagann, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Baccano, and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure! I'm open to any and every recommendation you leave me, so feel free to leave plenty in the comments!
What am I looking for in an anime? Fun! It can be silly, thought-provoking, scary, or anything, but as long as I enjoy it, that's what matters! ^_^
Shounen, shoujo, seinen, josei, 1980s, 90s, 2000s, and 2010s. I'm willing to watch anything as long as it isn't a hentai (that sort of shit doesn't interest me). You can recommend me to anything you bloody well please, whether it be critically acclaimed or hated by everybody. Why? Keep an open mind! I firmly believe that anything can be a masterpiece, you never know whether or not something's bad without experiencing it yourself, and that's the anime rule I live by!
You can find me on Youtube as well! I'll be posting anime reviews, top 10s, and any other videos that I think would be entertaining! Click here to view my channel!
Anybody that watches my videos should quickly become aware of my shitty editing skills and abysmal sense of humour. XD
I'm very... stubborn about what I consider anime. If it's not Japanese, it's not anime. If it is, then it is. Don't care about the art style, just the country of origin. Therefore, I don't consider Avatar an anime, even if it is a great show. :P
As for characters, my favourite is Eikichi Onizuka, since he's really funny and cool at the same time!
(ONLY ONIZUKA COULD GET AWAY WITH THAT)
Kamina from Gurren Lagann ranks second, he's such a manly man >:D
Aside from darling waifu that is way hotter than your waifu Mirajane, my favourite female characters are Fuko from Clannad and Revy from Black Lagoon; Fuko is really cute, while Revy is legitimately awesome!
My most hated character is Makoto Itou from School Days, anybody that's seen that show will understand why.
(THAT LOOK IS PURE EVIL)
Anime aside, I'm a really big fan of video games! My favourite game of all time is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Favourite film is Pulp Fiction, since I really like the style and acting in it! :D
And regarding western animation, I really enjoy Avatar, The Boondocks (a great commentary on suburban black culture) and The Maxx (extremely underrated and extremely artsy). I find Disney overrated (except for Lilo and Stitch, I bloody love that film), but Pixar are faaaaaaaantastic. My favourite cartoon character is Riley Freeman from The Boondocks.
I'm an open fan of retro media, particularly films, games, music and animation (both anime and cartoons). I particularly enjoy media from the 80s-90s. Strange considering I was born in 2000; lol.
Ever since setting up my Anime Planet profile, I've fallen in love with the community. You guys are awesome and I've made some great friends on the site <3
At the end of the day though, I'm just a big kid at heart. I still watch cartoons and will laugh out loud at them, love cats (I have three of them myself) and animals in general, sit up late at night playing Nintendo and reading comics and manga. :3
And I think I've gone on long enough, so with that said I'll leave you with a list of what I'm watching (so you can chat to me about them if you want), and thanks for reading! If you want to talk about anything, don't hesitate to leave a comment and have a chat, take care and enjoy watching anime! ^_^
