Hello everybody. I am Billy, but you can call me Billiam (it's just something my science teacher called me and it stuck)
I'm born English, but I moved to Wales around the end of summer 2012. Since then, I've started retro game collection, set up a Skype account (Skype me at frankstleBilly, just tell me in the comments section that you're going to add me and that way I know to expect you) and discovered anime.
The first anime I watched to its entirety was Death Note with my best childhood friend Connor (who is also on this website under the name frankstleConnor) and I thought it was awesome. I then proceeded to watch Bleach (I'm such a sad person that I've watched the entire franchise in terms of anime), Fullmetal Alchemist and several other series. That's where my obsession began.
As of now, my top 5 anime to date are:
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Clannad: After Story
My favourite kind of anime are shounen with comedy and action. I don't like romance in fighting-shounen anime but I don't mind romance in general. I'm completely willing to watch a shoujo, seinen or josei, as this will help me understand what other target audiences there are. I'm fine with watching ecchi: as long as there's no explicit sex scenes then I'm cool. I'm not a huge fan of mecha anime, but I'll watch them.
All that aside, thanks for reading, and I hope we can get along great. Feel free to leave a comment/have a chat, and as always, happy anime watching!

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
I don't eat vegetables (except potatoes and parsnips).
I have OCD, which has lead me to arrange my video games, manga and anime DVDs alphabetically. If I see a game/manga/DVD out of order or on the wrong shelf, I freak the fuck out and switch it around immediately.
I own 5 video game consoles: Xbox 360, Super NES, Sega Mega Drive (also known as the Genesis in the US), Nintendo 64 and Nintendo GameCube. Of all of them, I'd say SNES is my favourite, though I absolutely love GameCube. I'm also a Nintendo fanboy, and I hope to get an NES and Wii U at some point. The next console I plan to get is PlayStation 2.
I was born on the 6th of February, 2000.
I secretly wish I was Gray Fullbuster (just don't tell anyone).
I have 3 cats who I love to death.
My idea of a perfect night is during the winter, with some anime playing on the TV, a blanket and onesie, a cup of tea and some Jaffa Cakes.
The anime scene that traumatised me most is the nail ripping scene from Higurashi no Naku Kori ni. Anyone who's watched it knows exactly what I'm talking about and why. It's actually one of the only anime that genuinely scares me, and that's why I love it so much.
I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead, Pokemon, X-Men and Star Wars. I'm really not looking forward to Star Wars Episode VII, I think it could singlehandedly fuck up the entire franchise. But then again, it could be pretty good, so I'm not saying it will DEFINITELY be bad.
I prefer Pepsi over Coke.
My favourite pizza is chili cheese and BBQ sause with chorizo, pepperoni, bacon and chilli oil.
My favourite YouTube channel is Cinemassacre, known for The Angry Video Game Nerd. I also enjoy PewDiePie, VanossGaming, Gigguk, ScrewAttack, Smooth McGroove and Somecallmejohnny.
My top 5 favourite games of all time are Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Resident Evil 4, Super Mario World and Far Cry 3. Numbers 6-10 are Assassins Creed: Brotherhood, Grand Theft Auto V, Pokemon Emerald, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem and Sonic the Hedgehog 3.
I have proven myself unable to watch a clip from Clannad and not cry.
I'm a huge huge HUGE fan of music, my parents raised me well and taught me all the GOOD songs (I.e older music). Some of my favourite acts are the Beautiful South, Queen, Aerosmith, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Linkin Park, Lightning Seeds, Damien Rice and Snow Patrol.
My favourite anime character is Kamina from Gurren Lagann. His manliness, awesome quotes and memorability all contribute to that. My favourite female character is Fuko Ibuki from Clannad. I also enjoy tsundere, yandere and dandere character designs.
I try to watch notoriously bad anime as well as notoriously good anime, because I live by the quote "to appreciate the good, you must also appreciate the bad". Because if all anime were good, it would take the fun out of it, and if they were all good it would make the incredible series seem less good, while bad series can make an incredible series seem all the more incredible.
