Hi! Thanks for stopping by, here's the gist;

I've been in the anime scene since 2011 or 2012 (it's hard to remember these things tbh) but got seriously invested around 2016 thanks to discovering about half of my favorites that year. Used to be real into cosplay but nowadays I just lurk on forums and attend cons once or twice a year. 

Keeping up on seasonal anime is an absolute nightmare--I used to watch seasonals in a relatively timely fashion, but nowadays I usually just watch 1-2 shows per season then throw the rest onto the eternal want-to-watch list. I tend to only watch a show when I'm in the right mood for it so sometimes it can take me several months (or even over a year or in some cases) to finish a show I like that's only 12 or 24 episodes long.

One of my other hobbies is instrumental music. Between marching band, random orchestral pieces I find on youtube, and movie/video game/anime soundtracks, I enjoy playing and listening to a wide range of orchestral stuff. Recently I've been getting into some folk punk (currently working through The Mountain Goat's massive album history) so if you've got any reccomendations feel feel free to leave a comment!

I'm also a huge fan of video games with interesting, explorable worlds like Breath of the Wild, Guild Wars 2, and Octopath Traveler. (I'm only halfway through octopath though and who knows if I'll survive that beast of a combat system). In my mind, there's nothing better than getting to dig into a story and experience normal life in a not-so-normal world. 

I have very little patience with my media; if I'm watching a TV show or anime and I don't like it, it's going on the dropped list ASAP. There's been a couple exceptions to that rule, but for the most part life's too short to watch bullshit.

How to watch anime on anime planet

XxZeroeZxX Jul 18, 2019

Yeah I watched 91 Days after the fact and I loved the methodical episode-to-episode type pacing

Ah I'll eventually find one evening to wrap it up

So what r u up to these days stranger? College I guess?

XxZeroeZxX Jul 18, 2019

Lol its true, sometimes things seem more interesting in retrospect than in the moment

I've felt that way on more than one occassion, even about shows as a whole

I'm still waiting to find the time to finish Dororo, and I really like that show, but work is just so goddamn exhausting and then on the weekends I hav other obligations -_-

Ur preaching to the choir about trying to keep up w/ all the seasonal stuff, idk how I used to do it back in the day *facepalm*
