(NOTE FOR THOSE THAT KNOW ME: Hey guys, I'm back. Just had an eighteen month absence from this site since anime hasn't really been rustling my jimmies much. I've been busy with things like college, uni, work, all that good stuff. Sorry for keeping quiet, I've been absolutely fine, just busy and not interested in anime. Just taking a break from it is all! Glad to be back!)

This profile is very much a work in progress.

Hey there! My name is Bill, and if you're new here, then glad to meet you! I'm a uni film student living in Wales. Brummie by birth, Welsh by teenage upbringing.

I first started watching anime in 2013, not long after I moved to Wales. The first thing I watched was Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture - a pretty unconventional start, but it's a start nonetheless. After that, I took some recommendations from some school mates and found myself getting more and more obsessed with the medium.

Of course, when I first started out, my tastes were very idealistic and ridiculously positive. I was a kid, what can you expect. And although I've grown somewhat more cynical over time, even taking a veeeeeery long break from anime from the end of 2018 to mid-2020, that doesn't change the fact that as a whole, I still think it's pretty cool! In fact, I'm really out of the loop with more recent anime. So if anybody has any recommendations for me, then please throw as many at me as you can!

My favourite anime show is JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. I watched it when I was around 15 and it immediately clicked with me. The over-the-top style, the music, writing, it all fell into place for me. Seeing it become more popular has been great for me. Check it out if you haven't already! (still need to watch Part 5 though, I'm the worst fanboy ever)

Some of my other favourites include Gurren Lagann, Baccano, Berserk, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and more!

As for characters, hands down my favourite character is Eikichi Onizuka from Great Teacher Onizuka. His chill outlook on life and deranged antics never fail to keep me amused.

In general, I'm a big fan of sci-fi, fantasy, GAR, cool psychological stuff, and often escapist fiction. But that's not to say I'm not a fan of romance, realistic dramas, magical girl shows... really, if something exists, I'll watch it! I'm not picky about genre. I obviously have my preferences but as a whole, I'm pretty easy.

Here are some of my other interests!

I'd say that's about it for now. Want to know more? Feel free to hit me up and start a conversation! Thanks for dropping by!

Happy New Year Billy!

English Translation of Lyrics:

I was always gazing at
a white wall and rembrandt
I stood with you that Sunday morning as usual
look at the light that shines through the open window
as if you suddenly remember CALL MY NAME

we passed the time together when we had nothing
what a relaxing time that was
we were trying to gather those CHEAP counterfeits
piece by piece during the week

being lonely is frightening
I can be calm down best when I'm alone
because I have such a mind
I can live

I called out many times
the name I used to call you
in the room where there was only us
doing that kind of thing
feels better than anything else BE AWARE
it seems I believe in the feelings I can't see

day and night I think only of you
with no reason at all
the days were fun doing that
there's only one thing I don't want to lose

with one answer comes another new question
then another answer comes after that
always standing at the STARTING point
I walk slowly as if I can't move

the days I walked together with you
it was like a coincidence that we were in the ring of fate
that's the idea we have
don't fade away as you tremble
with that never changing voice PLEASE CALL MY NAME
as if you suddenly remember CALL MY NAME
it seems I believe in the feelings I can't see

I found this Interview from Nobutoshi Canna, and when asked what is his most underrated role in his career, Ryo from Project ARMS was his answer.

You know how you had Switch case OCD? Correct me if I'm thinking of somebody else.

I picked up Sine Mora EX on sale and it has the game's logo on the spine while the rest are white text with the logo sometimes.
