Hi, I'm Marcus. I have always been obsessively fond of anime since a young age, to the extent of either watching in an excessive manner, or simply not watching at all. Throughout the years, my preference for anime (or entertainment in general) has steadily changed over the course of time while watching the many different genres and keeping an open mind. I highly enjoy anime that pay special attention to detail throughout aspects of both the universe in which it's being told and the storyline. With consistency very much so appreciated in anime, Much of the time, just something emotionally powerful or extremely badass will meet my fancy. Well After re-watching Wolf's Rain again, my OCD tendencies began to reemerge, and I wanted to keep this "all so familiar" high going. After scouring the internet for a fix, soon enough I found anime-planet. Here, I'm hoping to meet some fellow anime enthusiasts with similar tastes, and to make new friends along the way! 

Hobbies: Movies, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!, MMA, Anime!, Travel (got back from Italy at the end of July!), Music, Philosophy, Guns!, Gaming (PSN: Valksta)

Music: Alternative/Indie, Lounge, Rock, 90s, Trance, and just good music all around

Examples: Thievery Corporation, Zero 7, Incubus, The Cranberries, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jefferson Airplane, Phoenix, The Shins, etc..

Yo! Cheers :) I've been training on and off for about 2 years. This last 6 months or so I haven't had much of a chance to train because of uni, now exams are almost finished I'm keen to get back into it and be more serious about it! Like yourself I've focused mainly on wrestling/BJJ but have a bit of experience in striking and am keen to work on my boxing.

If I ever come to the U.S or you to Australia we should have a spar/wrestle for fun :)

Yeah that fight was great! Diego is entertaining as hell :)

Nice to meet you mate and good luck with training!

I gave up/refuse to start long-running shounens, purely for their length (and incosistancy). Monster better impress the hell out of me after all the raving reviews and the 75ep length!

Just dropping in a reminder to start the two shows. I got a head start on both Monster and Bokurano and there's definitely a lot to talk about... I can't wait for next weekend's dicussion.

And as for Kara no Kyoukai - The Garden of Sinners, I'd join a group and watch. BUT not right now... I'm watching around 10 different shows, too little time. And then there's the non-anime shows... TV remains entertaining-- though a lot of people have given up on it.

I'm excited for both of those shows. Especially glad someone's watching Monster with me! It's so hard to commit to long series by myself :)

And I see that you're watching Kara no Kyoukai - The Garden of Sinners ... I've wanted to watch that for a while now. How are you liking it?
