Hi there! I'm a not-so-normal girl living in Seattle, WA. I work for a software company as a writer of developer documentation, but my background is computer science and programming. In my spare time I enjoy video games, especially console RPGs such as my obsession, Dragon Quest (or old school PC ones such as Ultima aka best games ever, or Sierra adventure classics), anime (duh!), sci fi, movies, my cats, and various other geekery.

I'm Anime-Planet's creator and admin, having built the site in 2001 in a quest to learn MySQL, before becoming the behemoth it is today. Anime-Planet was and is still run by a small handful of volunteers, even though we reach millions of users a month, so a great deal of my time is still spent creating features, running the project, training moderators, etc. If you're interested in helping support the site, check out this link :)

Contacting me:

As much as I'd like to be able to reply to each person who contacts me, I spend the vast majority of all free time working on the site and getting features out the door, so I rarely ever have time to read or reply to comments I get here. Most of the questions I get here are site-related questions that we have teams of moderators or forum sections to help with, and if there were less of those here in the profile, I'd have more time to reply to other comments.

Please make sure you read these notes and link suggestions for the most common site questions I get here. Another way to get in touch is in chat in the evenings, but I'd point you to the same links below if it's site questions. ;)

Thanks for stopping by! And now, enjoy some creepy amazing gifs.

Uhm, I can not remember where you wanted these reminders, but... the rec-list of the week is not updated.

And since I am here *tickles So-chan*

Okay, maybe I need a 12-step program or something to get my story section down to size. ;P I was shooting for half my previous length, but it's more like 3/4 the last one.

I just posted my latest review (for Shakugan no Shana).

Anyway, let me know if it works.

All I remember about Ergo Proxy is that I didn't like it all that much, lol.

Your into cyberpunk aye? Read the latest Gibson novel? Not cyberpunk by a long shot, but still damn good (he is some times called the father of cyberpunk). There are not many people I idolize, but that guy sure is one. <3 Idoru!

Any how, admittedly, i know next to nothing about shamanism, but now I intend to change that. *goes to wikipedia. Got any good resources/book suggestions???

Your top 5 gives me some good ideas... also <3 cromartie. I gave it to a friend for a bday gift tho... and haven't been able to find it again :'[
