Criminal Justice Grad student at MSU. Like anime, video games, fantasy books....I'm a nerd, pretty much. Though I do the outdoorsy stuff too. I'm heavily involved with the Boy Scouts as a summer camp shotgun range instructor.
I've actually seen at least one episode of 406 shows, all of 219, and keep track of them using a rather extensive excel document(tracks pretty much everything MAL does, the way I have it set up). Since I found this site, I've been gradually adding anime to it. One of these days, when i feel like it, I'll sit down and work my way through my list. Till then, I'll appear to have less experience with anime than I really have.
I was an officer in my college anime club for four years. The club's name is the U.C.J.A.S., the University of Chicago Japanese Animation Society.
They run a small, free, academically oriented convention in Chicago called Uchicon (usually Jan or Feb. Google Uchicon UCJAS for details about past cons and contact info). Also perform a skit in the Anime Central (ACEN) masquerade annually. You can look up some of the skits on youtube.
