About Groz
My name is Gregory but I go by Greg because I think it sounds less pretentious but I will answer to my screen name Groz as well. I've been watching anime for years and started as far back as when I was in Kindergarten watching Americanized versions of anime like G-Force and Robotech and always noticed how they were superior to the other cartoons that were on tv. Many years later I'm still a fan and enjoy discovering new series and frequently revisit old favorites. I also really enjoy talking about and recommending great anime to all the friends I've made here on MAL thus far. If you want to be friends or think we share a common interest in anime feel free to message me or leave a comment! :D If you decide you want to talk off site then add me on MSN, I may get an AIM soon and when I do you can add me there as well and if we get along well we can become facebook friends too! :) I also recommend you visit my youtube channel sometime, I have a wide assortment of cool anime opening themes that I've collected so you may run across some shows you might be interested in. At this point I have 60 different opening themes from a variety of shows saved to my playlist.

Besides anime I like to watch Japanese language films mostly J-Horror films like Ringu and Ju-On to name a few and I highly recommend you check those out at your first convenience. I also watched just about all of the Godzilla films and recently re-watched the original subbed version of Gojira, the film that started it all. I've never really watched any Japanese drama shows besides the TV Drama adaption of Great Teacher Onizuka.

I watch all kinds of genres of anime ranging from light hearted slice of life, mecha, occasional harem or fanservice, comedy, romance, shoujo, shounen, seinen, josei but especially enjoy darker psychological or horror anime.

Well my house is over an hour away so I just stay up there for the weekend. It's not too bad if you find a good deal on a hotel and split it 2 or 3 ways with friends.

aceofwar20 | 04-20-14, 6:48 PM
That's the main reason I always go with friends is so I don't feel out of place. I didn't really have an issue with there being a lot of annoying kids around. It's usually pretty chill if you ask me. There are times where you may be bored or something, but $40 for 3 days feels like my money's worth to me.

At Yama-con last year, Johnny was ok, but he was more focused on selling his band albums than anime. I got him to sign some stuff, but wasn't too satisfied with the overall experience of meeting him. Sonny Strait was there as well, and even though I wasn't all that psyched about meeting him, he ended up being the highlight of that con for me. Johnny's band had their concert on the last night, which I really enjoyed because I love music and concerts.

I've been going to ASE since it started 2 years ago. The first year I didn't give a crap about the VAs that were there and missed out on Todd Haberkorn and Tiffany Grant, which I regret to this day. I've always had a good time at ASE. It's more laid back than Yama-con imo, and they have a sweet gaming room if your get bored with the panels that are going on.
I met Vic Mignogna at ASE last year, he was a really nice guy. At his Q&A he would take everyone's requests like singing some of his songs, doing a line from an anime, or taking pictures.

There's really not much else I can think of that stands out. It doesn't really sound like all that much fun, but I really enjoy it. Although, if your going in expecting the time of your life at a con then your going to be disappointed lol.

There's Anime Southeast, which is the one Sonazki and I are meeting up at in May. Here's a link

I also go to Yama-con, which is pretty much in the same area as ASE. They usually have Johnny Bosch and his band there so you can go to that, and get to see a concert.

Yeah, the main reason I don't cosplay is I just can't do it right. You've got to get a good wig and keep it maintained, make or buy a costume, and wear it all day. I just cant do that stuff. I've seen a fair share of sexy cosplays, and I took pictures of course.

I wouldn't count yourself out man, you never know. I was considering the cons in gatlinburg/sevierville area. Sonazki and I are planning to meet up with one since they are fairly close to us.

I prefer to buy fan art, but occasionally I'll go out of my way to get a nice looking wall scroll or poster.

aceofwar20 | 04-15-14, 7:34 PM
I've been to 3 cons now, and have really enjoyed them. I never really cosplay when I go, but have a lot of fun seeing other peoples costumes. Shopping in the market is fun, but I've developed a hobby of buy artwork. Some of the art I see at cons is amazing. Yeah, I know that it usually takes a year to process.

Yeah, even though they built up to operation Jormungand throughout the second season. It still felt kind of forced since they tried to compress it in 2 episodes. I was disappointed at that, but otherwise thoroughly enjoyed the show. I'm pretty sure the Deadman manga was finished up a few months back.

aceofwar20 | 04-14-14, 4:45 PM
Damn, I would be about two hours away from you if I wasn't leaving lol. When I come back for breaks or something, we should hit up a local con. That really sucks about them trying to charge you out of state. I'm probably going to apply for residency at my brother's place in Jersey so I don't go broke. Its at least double the cost for out of state there.

I didn't think Black Lagoon was that bad, but Jormungand is way better man. It really surprised me, because I went in thinking that it would be a Black Lagoon clone. Yeah, Pupa turned out pretty bad from what I've heard, but I never gave it a shot. I need to catch up on some manga since everything seems to be ending lately.

aceofwar20 | 04-14-14, 1:31 PM
Congratulations man. What was your first choice school? As for me, I'm going to be attending Rutgers University in New Jersey. My brother lives up there, so I wont be stranded but will also be out of the South. Things have kinda been hectic with getting all this financial aid crap done, school work, and now I find out I have to take a placement test for Rutgers.

I haven't really had much time to do a lot of anime watching. I just watched Jormungand and really enjoyed it. It's sort of like Black Lagoon, but the characterization is way better. I honestly didn't have a character I didn't like since they made it a point to give them all their own little episode. They're arms dealers so it gets pretty dark at times.

A dark and gritty anime is very rare these days. Especially one that's done well. I can think of some I watched a while back that you may have missed. These are what come to mind atm Shin Sekai Yori, Danganronpa, and Fate/Zero.

Haha that sounds like an experience. I've actually heard of that incident somewhere probably on the news but it was quite interesting to read especially since he kind of lost it mentally. I hope you get accepted! I got accepted to my Sixth Form so all I need is the grades and I'll be able to join.

Hahahaha well if you ever leave and you ever gain the stones tell me if you actually did it :P. Haha I will.

Man, sorry for the slow ass reply I've been really busy especially with my finals coming up, I know its not a great reply but I hope you forgive me for the delay .·´¯`(>▂<)´¯`·.

Yukon | 03-01-14, 8:21 AM
Haha I know right.

I'll reply to your comment when I get the chance but our Anime Compatibility has increased :o.

randompadley | 02-25-14, 3:45 AM
Well that is a relief I will start doing that more then, before i got bed or when I wake up I may just start leaving you little messages for you to read haha, although I think at night time when its like 10pm its like evening where you are and that is when we had our more in depth conversation on facebook so I may choose that time when im just sat in bed watching anime or a film! I have also got back into my reading since Rowena kindly bought me a kindle bless her so have been making a point to try and read a book a week if possible. I see that you are on goodreads which is an awesome site I use it a lot, but it doesn't look like you use it xD haha

No no its pretty much the same, which is why I asked you how hard it was to get jobs overall in the US not just in your area, at the moment things in the UK are really bad and jobs are getting harder and harder to find which is why I find myself quite lucky, especially since im working for my local council which I take pride in as I represent my local area in a way. Retail isn't all bad, as long as you can keep calm when customers are idiots, and just think its only money, its only while you go to uni its not forver so even if its shitty you can stick two fingers up when you go to uni haha!

Aww well you definitely must like her if your getting the butterflies I mean I still do whenever I meet Rowena after work or vica versa there is always those little butterflies as she is walking towards me! And smooth man for giving her a compliment im proud of you man haha, just keep it up and stick with it and make sure that she really is single which i have my fingers crossed that she is, what was her reaction if you don't mind me asking and what was the compliment, if you'd rather keep it to yourself i understand though :)

haha well im glad to report that we have no finished sex and the city xD i was relieved but then she turned to me and said....... 'shall we watch the movies next?!' my reaction had her in fits of laugher! But we have agreed to catch up on a series called supernatural you may have heard of it as its quite big over there in the US? Aaaah the man up challenge its just basically a food challenge xD so i basically had this huge burger with bacon, bbq sauce, a chicken fillet etc etc and a bucket of fries and onion rings! im sure you have quite a lot of this type of things over there in the states?

randompadley | 02-19-14, 10:52 AM
yeah i am the same sometimes i get home from work or when i get up in the morning and have some free time before i set off i think to message you then but its like 4am there so there isn't any point! yeah i can imagine you being really worried it would be so hard having a friend like that, its kinda like if i ever thought something had happened to you and not being able to do anything (so please don't haha)

no not at all, i don;t think anybody can be called arrogant for having dreams and aspirations and wanting to better themselves and that is by finding the job that they want to do and love, luckily I have found mine, but I do realise sometimes you might have to settle for a not so good job in order to pay bills and feed your kids or pay off loans etc the world is harsh like that, and i think people are a bit silly to pass on jobs if they have no money....

haha you sound just like me, I am fine with girls I know or aren't interested in, but when it came to a girl I really liked then I would just have a meltdown and either go really shy or say something to embarrass myself, or make myself look stupid, fortunately Rowena saw past that and let me be get more comfortable xD ooooh yeah good idea dude, that's a great way to find out, I would go with that the next time you see her!

hahahaha i saw the clip and loved it, I have had to sit through 5 seasons so there is only one more left, but that clip really defines what that show is all about, its so bad and all the characters are total bitches and up themselves and tbh don't show women in a good light at all, I wouldn't want to play a role like that, not sure how the actresses felt but I get so angry when watching it as they treat guys like shit, and are basically slags pardon my language so that clip was perfect xD

randompadley | 02-13-14, 3:46 PM
i don't really find it hard but its really awkward for example with you to time whether or not your going to be on, with the time difference, which is why MAL is such a good little fall back as at least I know you will get my message at some point, whereas on facebook its hard to know what times you'll be on, im at work and sometimes we both might have plans during the day etc etc im glad to hear your friend is okay though that sounds worrying D: i would hate to know somebody like that, especially if they lived far away where i wasn't able to help, or ring or do something if i felt they were in danger.....

your right, nobody wants a job they feel is beneath then, and everyone has certain standards shall we say, i do think its admirable when you see men cleaning streets and stuff just to put food on the table, its admirable i won't like and say that i would feel humiliated if that happened to me, purely because i know i would be capable of more, but i like to think if it came to it, i would do whatever it took to provide for my wife and kids etc but that's just a totally different topic than just finding a job xD haha

its nice to know my advice will be put to use, but like i say with women its down to the guy, in the end its your life and your the only one who can judge it, and your a smart guy you can handle it xD i have however been thinking of ways for you to ask her if she is single or not, one good one i came up with would be to ask if her partner (just assume she has one) is okay with her moving away to university? that way she will either say 'yes or no' orrrr 'i don't have a boyfriend' i thought that might be a safe way and a perfectly logical question which doesn't seem too obvious?

yeah that's fine dude, i appreciate that, i am only managing one episode a night atm if im lucky, so just slowly catching up with hunter x hunter and watching pupa every week as its only 5minutes out of my time...... Rowerna (my girlfriend) guilt tripped me into downloading all seasons of sex and the city D: D: so she is making me watch all of those as i forced her to watch the first two seasons of american horror show! other than that i am the same, just watching movies before bed, but i do hope one day soon we can do something anime wise, i miss our anime talks! :)

randompadley | 02-10-14, 12:07 PM
yeah same here its hard making friends online now, especially when there over in the US its different times, and everybody has different stuff going on their lives its not like one or the other can pop round and see if their free... its just a case of hoping to on at the same time but im glad to see that were still in touch and lets be honest its now been over a year since we first started talking so i think were doing pretty well xD ah yeah transportation was a big thing for me, i would also never work in fast food not because i think its beneath me (even though if i was being honest i do think it is) but just because i don't think i would be able to do it, its very fast paced and hectic, whereas i like to have time do a job and not have pressure on me to get it done like ASAP which is handy in my job as most of the customers are very chilled back and have a very 'take your time, im in no rush' attitude which is refreshing!

your welcome my friend anytime you need adivice im sure you know that i am here if needed, i may not always give the correct advice but will always try, but your a smart guy and seem to have your head screwed on i can only mirror what you are already planning to do, and that is just learn more about her as and when you can, be casual, you have plenty of time like you say just let it come naturally which you are already doing :) maybe find out if she is available though, cos you don't want to develop further feelings only to find out she is taken, i've been there and regretted not asking or finding out sooner and wouldn't want that to happen to you!

haha yeah i know its bad, im not going to lie and say its great, but what more can you expect from a 5minute show haha, i just thought it would be a little bit of a laugh where we could just rip it to pieces at how bad it is, but if there is something you'd like to watch just name it, i don't want to pressure you and i won't be offended if you don't feel like it, i know anime is something to watch when your in the mood so.... just let me know if you ever want to start :)
