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.

Yes apart from some work that needs finishing monday is all good and remember I do have a week coming up after the 26th so its theres the odd time that there is free days.

Well I have had a ton of work, some work expierence and going to some tribunal thing for the money I get.

I saw 50/50 a while ago and I thought it was a great movie.

I haven't been having the most exciting times recently and theres stuff i've been meaning to play but I am too tired when i get home to be in the mood to play them.

Yea I am quite interested to hear how you think it compares to the other tales of games that you have played.

Thanks for the link I will listen to the album when I get back home in a few hours. I think its interesting that Tremonti has done his own album.

It has been a while but I definitely want to watch some Anime again.

I knew you you would enjoy the Berserk movie but yea when there is multiple movies the wait can be annoying lol

Persona 4 Arena isn't out yet in europe but it will around october 26th from i've been reading so about in a months time.

I know Borderlands 2 and Tales of Graces f will be good so I hope to play them at some point.

I cant really comment on the One Piece game but I'm sure if you are a fan then you will really like it.

I have been meaning to message you but ive been stuck in bed since last week because someone gave me an illness.

The situation is that I only have mondays off and everyday is a really late college finish so my free time has been shrunk. 

Well I hope all is well with you.
