Hi there. 

First, I should probably admit that I've been the stray cat of the anime forums. When I'm here, I'm posting a lot and hanging with everyone. And then, I up and vanish for months at a time. Hopefully, now that life has settled down, I'll be a bit more consistent!

Hamletsmage: A Brief History

I was introduced to anime as many Americans were introduced to anime in the mid-90s, through Sailor Moon. I actually copied the art style for a long time, until I turned my attention to science and gave up drawing. However, I didn't pursue anime after Sailor Moon because like many Americans, I hadn't heard the term. It wasn't until my sophomore year of high school that a friend introduced me to Inuyasha and Fullmetal Alchemist and a bunch of other shows. Between Adult Swim and the Internet, I developed a love of anime and manga. 

About My Anime List:

I rate on an arbitrary scale, depending on how I feel at the current moment, so ratings are liable to change on any given day. While I may stall things, this is usually because of school or work related issues rather than me not liking the anime. It is rare that I drop an anime (at this point, it's never happened) as I try to finish anything I start. I will watch just about anything, although I tend to go for shorter stuff since I can binge it in a day or two. And now, some stats!

Anime #300: Bleach Memories of Nobody

Anime #400: Jin: Lost Time Memory

Anime #500: Absolute Duo

Anime #600: Ojii-san no Lamp

Anime #700: Maiden Rose (thanks Thrawn)

Anime #800: Re:ZERO -Starting Life in a New World-

Anime #900: Valvrave the Liberator

Anime #1000: TBD

About My Manga List

I once had a summer where I read nothing but short manga. One shots, 1-4 volume stuff, of every variety. And then, I burned out on manga and didn't touch it for the longest time. In 2016, I joined the Daily Manga Marathon Club and got reintroduced to the media, so, my manga list will grow again. As long as the sappy shoujo doesn't kill me first. (And I will finish Bleach eventually... when I'm bored)

Manga #150: Crimson Shell

Manga #200: Watashitachi no Shiawase no Jikan

Manga #250: 

About my contributions:

You may notice I've also done quite a few reccomendations. I'm currently working on building up my review count, as well. I'm also attempting to make comprehensive lists on how to get the studio badges. Because... I like badges.  

Any Other Questions:

Thanks! It took an hour or so to find all the gifs I wanted, but it was totally worth it! ;D

New Years Eve was pretty chill, New Years Day was a bit more on the boring side I'm afraid lol. Oh well, at least I had off today, and I thoroughly took advantage of the fact :D

Yes its true, u see a lot of foreigners in the engineers schools across the US and ur right that most of them in my experience seem intentioned to head back home which is quite interesting. But w/ people like Trump around, I guess I can see why they don't wanna stick around haha

Awww, that's adorable sempai! <3

U r clearly the best kind of sempai ^_^

So caring and nuturing *hug* :)

Also both the big fooball games today hav been a mess, is it too much to ask for a good game of football before I hav to go back to work -_-

...that was a nice TD right there though o_o

(literally as I was typing haha)

Hi! I just randomly stumbled upon your page (I tend to wander at times and end up in strange places... -_-") and just wanted to compliment you on your page! It's nicely put together! (and the twitter feed with the Fort Book part made me laugh. I have one of those in the corner of my room since I ran out of space on my three bookshelves. xD)

Oh, and Happy New Year! :D

No sempai is very amazing! *lifting hug* :D

Hehe go figure ^_^

Yes I do :), in my line of work its very beneficial because its an extremely competitive entry level job market. And yes u r very reputable I'm not surprised! Also when u think about it, I mean it is kinda central in the US so I can see people f/ pretty much anywhere in the Midwest, Northeast, and even some of the South wanting to go there.

Aww yayy *hug* :)

Oh my, that's a long long way :O

I should've known, sempai is so wonderful after all ^_^

Did u meet in college? :)

XxZeroeZxX Dec 30, 2016

Ohh! :O

I wish I lived in sempai's attic :(

OMG, sempai is amazing! :O

I was originally a chemical engineer, but switched to civil, so many of my college friends were ChemE's as well :). In fact, one of my former roommates he works in like a similar type field ur describing, doing like process improvement type things w/ medical software. Isn't that interesting :D

Oh I see! Cincinnati is one of the best public engineer schools, I even considered it for grad school but ended up at NC State :). But one of our most noteworthy professors at Cornell, Dr. Hover, he's the president of ACI and he was a Cincinnati alum :D

I never imagined to find a sempai so wonderful here *big hug* ^_^

Oh my, that's quite a long lineage! Well not really. Greek I know virtually nothing, Portuguese I understand pretty well and if I applied myself I could probably learn to speak w/o tremendous difficultly.

But I'm super fascinated by sempai now o_o

If I may ask, is sempai married? :O
