Hey i'm Sam =]

Here's a little bit about my life around anime...

i've been watching it ever since i was little although i never knew what it was at the time, i grew up around shows like Dragon Ball Z, Pokemon, and Digimon and it's only till i entered my later teens that i ventured into anime properly. I think the first show i started watching was Love Hina, followed by the likes of Outlaw Star, The Big O, Tenchi Muyo, Naruto and Bleach, since then i've watched a ton of shows and i'm still enjoying japanese animation. I think with time my tastes have matured and i've come to appreciate it alot more, i hope that in the future i will continue watching and being as addicted as i was when i first started.

And now for the rest... 

I enjoy reading manga, Berserk and Psyren are my favourite so far, i'm steadily buying more and more of it and i hope to expand my collection in the future. Some other manga i like include Mirai Nikki, Shin Angyo Onshi, Gantz, Claymore and Deadman Wonderland.

I'm a big fan of video games, i own a PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. I've had an Xbox and Xbox 360 in the past and also a 3DS. Yakuza 3, KOTOR 1-2, Jade Empire, Mass Effect, Shadow of the Collossus, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Asura's Wrath, Tales of Symphonia/Vesperia and Final Fantasy VII-X are my favourite games of all time.

I also enjoy listening to music, i like any sort of genre, i'm open to anything, my favorite band is Alter Bridge. Some other bands i enjoy include System of a Down, Tool, Bush, Shinedown, Avenged Sevenfold, Skindred and Incubus.

I love watching movies, some of my favorites are Memento, Battle Royale, House of Flying Daggers, The Usual Suspects, The Host, Cloverfield, Oldboy, IP Man and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

Thanks for reading.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask :)

Anime Ratings:

5 stars = Reserved for shows i deem truly perfect and without flaw.

4+ stars = Shows with this rating are truely awesome, not much gets better than this 4.5's being top list quality shows.

3+ stars = This rating goes to shows that were highly enjoyable, 3.5's being very good.

2.5 stars = Shows rated this were fun to see but ultimately failed to captivate the mind and as such failed to gain any real merit, average.

2 stars = Poor and unimaginative, i struggled to get through shows with this rating.

1+ stars = Horrible trash, avoid at your own discretion.

0+ stars = Better locked away forever for fear of self-implosion.

Last few weeks Ive been in a real gaming mode but the last few days I've been strangely motivated to watch Anime. When you stop watching a long running shounen I've found it is hard to get the motivation for quite awhile.

 Ok well thursday is quite a late one so I would be back around 5:30-6:00 and friday is the last day so I will be back very early at around 12:00-12:30.

But yea on my usual college timetable the best days if you were to come round would be Wednesday or Friday. They both end a bit earlier so would be back at 4:30 and generally less hectic days.

Talk to you later.

Yeah I bet you've been tired all the time.

I guess I am lucky since im getting less busy now and It looks I might be having tuesday and wednesday off since no worthwhile work is being done on them days.

I have done the usual playing of games and watching of anime and tiredness so yeah not much for me to say either.

Ok I guess I will see you when I see you lol

Ok just checked today and it seems that the college breaks up on the 21st for 2 weeks so I have 2 weeks after this one left.

Tales of graces f is on the main console that I use so I am definitely looking to play it at some point.

I have read some review on the dragonborn dlc and it does seem like it will be a very interesting to play.

The thing I am looking forward to christmas for is the sleep I never get enough during the week so that should be good lol I will use what you have got me so it will be money well spent.

Can't think of anything else since I am still in Technician mode at the moment lol

Yea I usually wait until after all the big stuff in the week is done to reply and the work experience is just finished so here is a reply lol

I finally got my two month payments last week so i can finally get a 3DS since my current DS is pretty much done at this point.

Just bought both Borderlands 2 DLC the other day and from the bit I played they seem to be pretty good.

Also just heard that the 3rd Skyrim DLC will be on PS3 so hopefully the first 2 will be out sometime soon.

Haven't really watched any past Anime but keeping up with the currently airing shows at the moment.

I'm trying to power through all this college work so I can get to the 2 week break and chill with games/anime. I know some people are in the christmas mood already but ill think about it when its the week before lol

So yeah not much my end apart from hardly having money lol

The problem with shounen shows is because there is so many episodes it can be a bit off putting. I am determined to get One Piece one day though since it would be a shame not to experience all of the various arcs.
