Sup everybody. I'm Calvin but you can call me Vin, Cal-ifornia, or whatever the heck floats your boat; I'm a complete sucker for retro anime, especially Lupin the Third (as you may have guessed by the name lol). At least five years and counting of being gay af for Jigen. 👌👌👌 I'm a somewhat out-of-practice animator in my 20s, I cosplay as a hobby, and as far as anime stuff goes I like old stuff, stuff with good character designs (if the characters have the same faces I prolly won't be able to get into it), stuff with fantastic writing/storytelling, and occasionally stuff with hot characters that are my type lmao (that's how I get into most newer anime ngl lol).
Favorite genres are adventure, mecha, sci-fi, fantasy, etc. I admittedly do have a soft spot for magical girl anime, and occasional shoujo stuff that catches my interest (Ore Monogatari is a good example of one that hooked me).
Important note: This is a no-moe household.
Favorite anime are Lupin, Big O, Zatch Bell, Baccano, Yu Yu Hakusho, Jojo (especially part 3, not including part 5), and probably others I can't remember rn. Favorite movie of all time is Castle in the Sky. Favorite ships include Jigen and Goemon from Lupin, Galo and Lio from Promare, Avdol and Polnareff from Jojo, and tons of others (if you want to break the ice with me, a fun question is asking who I ship in a specific anime). I'm not as social on here now as in prior years but feel free to say hi and talk about an anime we both like!
Notable Milestones: 100th Watched Anime --> Rage of Bahamut Genesis (Kaisar is pretty yo, esp with his hair down)

2.5: Mmmmehhhh, still liked a bit but it had more glaring flaws
2: Ehh..I mean I don't really hate it, so it's got that going for it?
