Sup everyone ;)

I live in Denmark (a small country in Scandinavia, there has a lot of beaches and bad weather all year around), and love to watch anime! I'm a member of the Anime-planet's welcome committee and am very glad that I found this site, with people who likes anime just as much as I do. I also like reading mangas but I'm more into anime light-novels.

I like Japanese culture and hope that I some day can go travel there, with my anime buddy.

I'm a 21-year-old male, who likes all sorts of anime. I like discussing anime and make different kinds of lists, that you can see on my profile.

7 years ago did I stumble over anime, for the first time since I was a little 8-year-oldkid. I saw one of my friends seeing this weird series about a group of people how there fighting in a game of becoming a god (Aka future diary). I didn't pay much attention to it, even though it seemed to be very interesting and entertaining.  I thought to myself, that this was just my style. The humor, the strong emotions, the fights, and the Japanise culture did for some reason make me interested in this strange genre called: anime. However, after I saw two episodes with my friend, didn't I think more about it. I didn't want to watch it for some reason. Instead, I went with my usual list of crime-series on Netflix (dexter, Hannibal, you name it) It was great, it was cool, but it also lacked something. It lacked emotion, awesome fights and that kind of humor that I really liked. So for about 2,5 years ago now, I went back to watch anime, to see what it was really about, and oh boy I wasn't disappointed. I come to really like it, and could suddenly remember why it was that I really liked anime as a kid.

It has sort of become a hobby of mine when I use so much time watching it with my brother and discussing with you folks. Even if I one day will grow tired of anime, doubt I that I will ever see it as a waste of time. Anime is entertaining and has opened a side of me, that I have totally forgotten about. I guess that you can say, that I have become a kid again.

Hi, my header is taken from the credit scenes of Attack on Titan, it depicts one of their church murals, which shows the first titan giving the power to humans, and therefore how human-titans came to be. That scene also represents the moment when everything will be known for how Titans originated which is one of the mysteries I'm still waiting to know in the upcoming season, although the explanation may not be as the mural shows since their church is full of lies, lol.

Yeah, there are lots of anime with much deeper meanings than you can initially see, and analogies to our "real world" like One Piece. Although I'm not sure how much is intentionally hidden and how much is just hidden by our cultural differences :)

Hi, this in regard to your question, which I just saw:

"I know that this anime is a couple of hundreds of episodes long and have existed sense 1999, but is it really too late to ask why this guy's name first name is: Monkey. I know that it's anime but damn..."

One of the great classics of Chinese literature is "Journey to the West", which one of the main protagonists is the Monkey King. I'm not sure exactly why (since this is Chinese literature and not Japanese), but many animes make reference to this story, especially with the character's personalities. I'm sure you have already seen many animes where the main protagonists look or behave like a Monkey. Dragon Ball is one of them, which was inspired by that book, and you can clearly see the resemblance in Goku and the weapon he uses. Luffy was inspired by Dragon Ball, hence, continuing the reference to "Journey to the West" and therefore looking/behaving like a Monkey who is going to become the Monkey/Pirate King.

There are many other animes with this setup also making reference to that book, like Saiyuki (although I wouldn't recommend watching that one since it's a bad adaptation).

Repsak says...   Hello, Sianeka. I'm sorry to tell you, that I no longer can continue being a greeter in your A-P Welcoming Committee. I'm going into the military, and since it has proven to be quite difficult to get access to wifi out there (because it's way out in the country and all that), has I decided to set my position as a greeter on hold.   I will, however, like to become a supporter instead, and possibly become a greeter again once my time is over.   Thanks for taking me in the first place, and good luck forward.   Repsak

Hi!  I really hate to lose you as a Greeter! But I understand that often there just isn't enough time to do everything we may want to do.  Life does get busy on us. And military service is admirable.

I'll move you to being a Supporter so you will still be in WECO, but not doing Greetings.  And you will be welcome to come back as a Greeter in the future if you find yourself with the desire and the free time to help out again.  I hope you will return!

I most sincerely thank you for all the help you have given and thank you for welcoming new members!  It's been great having you as a Greeter, and I am so happy to have been able to have you in that role.  (And I hope maybe someday again in the future!)  


In the meantime, good luck with school everything.  I wish you much success in your endeavors!  Thank you again for your time as a WECO Greeter!
