Cliched or not, I think everyone of us can talk a little about ourselves, because the purpose of this club is to bring its members closer and allow us to have lots of funny and great moments.

Soooo.. don't be shy OR lazy (my case most of the times.. :P) and come tell us a bit about you, your interests, a few things that can shed some light to your mystery! ;D

Since I opened the topic, I'll start first writing a few basic things about me.

Sooo mina-san nice to meet you! I'm Nataly and I'm Greek. I turned 24 this past December and I'm still studying to get my degree in architecture.

In my free time, apart from anime, I love vidding, I'm doing it for over 3 years now and I post my works on YouTube. I've also done a research on it for uni.

I started becoming interested in Japan in my elementary years when Japanese students came to my school to celebrate 100 years of friendship between our countries, and we did together many activities. I took part in a traditional Japanese dance with original kimono and then we got from them many souvenirs and stuff. Since then Japan is in my heart. Last year, at last, I started Japanese lessons in a school and I just got my first degree N5 of JLPT.

I love music, playing electric piano, and lately trying to play lots of anime music too..
I also love learning new languages and things about other peoples' cultures.
I have two cats and I generally adore cats! I'm not too fond of dogs though..
Most of the times I like being left alone but I can't be for too long without friends either.

My most favourite food is.. sweets.. ^^
I'm a Capricorn with ascendant in Pisces.

I want to visit Japan one day.. and who knows.. ¿ maybe live in it for a while ?

In anime, manga and generally in stories, I love deep, emotional plots with good exploited characters..anti-heroes being my fav ones :) Music and animation plays a huge part in affecting my decision.

Hope I can hear a few stuff about you now and get to know you more! ;)

Lovely to meet you Nataly.

I'm Dominic, I'm 28 (to be 29 later this year...GAAAHHHHH!!). I'm an American, not an ugly one though ^_^. Other than anime I'm a big reader and gamer amongst other things. I also enjoy anonymity, so that's all I'll post for now, but if you would like to know more, just ask.

Oh and I'm a sarcastic ass dude, so try not to take too much of what I say seriously.

Hi All. My name is Chris. But I've had the nickname Toasty for many years. Which ever one is fine. I'm 29 years old. Turning 30 July 1st. Jezz 30! well...whatever. I grew up in Los Angeles California. I lived there till i was 21. When I finished up collage I moved to beautiful Lake Tahoe Ca. I've been here for about 9 years now.

I'm a simple person to get along with as long as you know the 4 main things I love:

Good tequila

Anime

sushi

music


Lets see...I'm the floor manger & bartender for a Bar/Club called the Fat Cat. I love live music and good drinks. My jobs require a lot of both. So I've grown fond of my jobs.

I've always been fascinated with Japaneses culture. I plan to visit japan many times before my life comes to an end. I've been learning Japaneses in my spare time. Not fluent yet. But getting there.

I also like to game as well. MMORPG's. At the moment im stuck on a game called Aion.


As far as anime goes...Im going to steal some stuff from my profile:

I basically been a fan of anime since i could remember. Voltron was my first anime back in 84 and 85.(One of the first true Mecha shows that came out...Still think they made that lame Power Ranger show off that!!!)(...But whatever) Right when Nintendo first came out.. Then it went all the Sailor Moons, db,dbz,dbgt, (Dragon ball series ).haha. I've seen about 100 different anime over time.Manga...jezzz. Dont even know... I just started this list... Going back and watching some again, so I can put them down. I like almost any genre, But mostly stuff with Comedy/action/romance. The action can be mecha/swords/guns/fantasy/magic. I am down for a wonan that can swing a sword around calmly:P.. When it comes to the romance part... I tend to be picky. It has to be more adult. A relationship that builds. How ever i do like the cheesy guy who never knows what to do. It's a love hate thing. Depends on the mood..haha. I'm always down for any suggestions for new anime to watch.

Well that about it... I look forward to discussing anime with you all:)

Hi hi! Nice to meet you all! I'm Camellia, yes it's my real name. :) Nickname is Cammy. I'm 21 and a Sophomore, I guess you can say, in College. I'm going for my B.A and my major is English. I work part time as a Library Clerk/Assistant and I love it there! As you can see, I'm fond of books. :p

Other things are anime, manga, photography, writing, a little of astrology and psychology. Ermm, my favorite anime is Naruto and Bleach. I love listening to music whenever I get the chance; anime, classical, mostly anything besides metal and rap. Umm, oh and I've also always been intrigued by Japanese culture. Yes, it was mainly because of watching anime, but soon after I started really looking into Japanese culture and found it really interesting. I'm in the middle of trying to learn their language. I'm also hoping to travel there after I graduate.

Oh and even though I'm 21, I still haven't tried alcohol or gotten drunk. Really. :p Though I have tried it once before, and because of that it was said (by my friends) I'm a lightweight and should stay away from it lol.

And...that's all for now! Ask if you have any questions! <3

Oh cooly! A fellow English major and book lover. :) What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

Haha, that's good to know. I probably won't ever be a drinker. ^^ And thank you for the welcome! It's a pleasure to meet you as well!

why cammellia thanks for asking!! =D well i'm a history nerd (my current major) as well, so a lot of what i read is history based. historical novels, alternate history sci-fi, and just plain history. also the romantic poets, keats, wordsworth, shelley, byron, etc, amongst many other things, but that stands out.

how about yourself? i'm always too keen to meet a fellow reader. ^_^

Nataly,Dominic,Camellia,Leon,Alvina...Nice to meet you all. This looks like a good group forming up:) I did leave a lot of stuff out about myself. But after reading your entries it seems I do share a lot more in common with you all, then i originally put down.(With the exception of the drinking part...lol) Like my love for reading and writing as well. I love reading fantasy books myself. I'm also working on a book in my spare time. Well it's more like I'm writing a story that i want to be made an anime. Perhaps after Il write a few more chapters and fill in some gaps in the story I can share it with all of you:)

Welcome to the club Chris, Camelia and Alvina!

Camelia we share the same love for astrology! My mom got me into it, and I really like it since then. Plus I love Naruto and Bleach too. Glad to see more girls interested in big shounen anime. Good luck with Japanese language as well, it's very interesting and an amazing experience learning it!

Alvina you're welcome for the invite. We're glad to have you here. Feel free to post and share your thoughts with us anytime.

Chris, I believe we've already talked a little. Nice to read about your interests! I believe everyone would be glad to read your story. Keep posting on the forum and having fun! ;)

Take care everyone and stay active as much as you can! :)

Hi everyone. I'm Ananda.
I like to read A LOT. Just about anything from Harry Potter (I remember reading it before it was this "phenomenon") to Tom Clancy, to Stephen King to Anne McCaffrey, Tolkien and Herbert. so if you wanna talk about books I'm here :D I don't have enough room for my books. It's probably a good thing I don't have the money to my manga, or I'd REALLY be in trouble lol.
I also watch a lot of "regular" tv shows, my favorites are M*A*S*H, Star Trek TNG, House, and Lost, but I'll watch almost anything.
I like to float around on deviantart a lot, so if you have a page there let me know :) My username there is the same as here. I kind of dabble in photography, and ceramics painting. I used to write a lot, but not so much anymore. I just kind of lack the inspiration.
I've been *trying* to learn Japanese for the last year or so, but without any formal instruction it's proving to be pretty complicated. When I decide to go back to college, it'll be to teach, though I'm not sure what.
I'm kind of a computer nerd, I worked at a phone-in help desk for a while, but I've done hands-on repair many times. I remember working on the old "Apple Macintosh" computers, before they were just "Macs". :P
I'm also trying to learn to draw a little, but coloring's really more my thing. (Geez I feel like a kid when I say I like to color lol.) I drew the eye in my profile picture. :D

(I also tend to ramble a little...)

I read my way through the Dune novels last year, longest it's ever taken me to read a series. That said, I LOVED it. Right now I'm reading Tom Clancy's "Ryanverse" series. It's kind of a beast too. *thinks...* All this talk of books, there should really be a book thread around here somewhere lol.

Dune is so immersive, it's like a mind trap...and you know what, you're totally right. with all of us book-learning type people here we do need a book thread. if one is not up in the next couple days i will, but i think someone else may do better with it :P

Hi. I'm Joe (not sure I'm going to remember everyone's real name, just remembering usernames is hard enough) and I'm 32. I also was a former English major, also studied Art and Theater. I used to be a big gamer, but not much anymore. I don't watch much TV anymore, but still make time for Anime and comedy shows like Conan. I originally just joined MAL to participate in Bleach forums but I'm having fun with other stuff now too. I want to collect cards, but so far none of my requests have been answered :(

Hi! Good to have you join us!
o.O There's a Saint Petersburg in Florida? Hm. Shows how much I (don't) know. Anyway, I think you're the first person I've met online from Russia. Kinda cool.
Myself, I've always liked anime, but never really made a big deal out of it until recently. I always thought my friends would think I'm kinda weird for it, but they think that anyway lol! It's always kinda fun to "convert" people though :P

Yo-ho! I'm Sarah, 22 year old college student who's a double major in writing and illustration, living here in Maryland, USA. Anime and manga definitely influenced my majors! :P

I've been into anime since I was around 8 or so. Technically, my very first anime was Speed Racer - I used to watch it with my family - but Sailor Moon became the first anime I was addicted to and learned it was anime, along with Cardcaptors and Pokemon a little later on, but of course the big one and still near and dear to my heart is Sailor Moon.

The first manga I read was Sailor Moon Stars when I was about 12, since I learned there was no chance of getting the Stars season in the USA (at the time, anyway). And then I started picking up Cardcaptor Sakura, Saint Tail, Miracle Girls, and my manga collection started.

My yearly convention is Otakon. I hope to go to other cons in other states really soon, but I'm kind of limited being a poor college student and all. But Otakon's the biggest con in the east coast and the second biggest in all America, so I guess it's not so bad! And I do cosplay, just don't make my own costumes, usually I get a friend or my grandmother to work on them for me - and I haven't done it recently because I want to drop some weight.

I joined MAL to keep up with what I was watching since I started watching stuff online - it used to be that whatever I watched was what I had bought. The forums just became this nice bonus. :P

Otherwise my interests are reading, writing, the few various TV shows that I actually keep up with, western animation, kitties, swimming, candles, globes, the weather (channel), astrology and tarot cards, and so on and so forth. Can't really think of anything else.

I hope to be active in the community~ Thanks for lettin' me in, and hello and welcome to all!

Hi, I am János (=John) from Hungary, but I was born in Germany, that's why I speak German fluently. I am 30 years old and studied German and History at the University in Budapest, but in the lost five years I attended a lot of computer courses,and my aim is to become a System Administrator.
My hobbies are reading (I like German, French and English literature, my favourite authors are Dürrenmatt, Brecht, E.T.A Hoffmann, Verne among others), listening to music, surfing the net and of course computer science.
I like both classical music (operas, symphonies, etc.) and entertaining music, my favourite genres are rock, especially progressive rock of the seventies, alternative music, a few heavy metal bands, and triphop like Portishead, Tricky or Primal Scream.
I have been studying English for about eight years and this year I would like to take the advanced language exam in it. As I am a great fan of Italian operas, I would like to study Italian as well in order to understand the texts of the operas.
I like a lot of anime genres like shounen, fantasy, sci-fi, horror and ecchi, but there are some romantic or slice-of-life animes which are quite good (Honey and Clover, Lovely Complex) despite the fact that romantic genres are not my cup of tea.
I haven't read mangas yet because I don't like the style of drawing.
Sorry for the long introduction, I hope it wasn't too boring. I have already written some posts, I hope we can discuss a lot about several topics like animes or Japanese culture.

Hi from here as well, to Lotus97, Yozhik, Kitty and gilas! Hope you will all have a great time here! :)) I see everyone has studied art in it's various forms. It's great to have you all join our club! :)

@Lotus
I'll say a more formal hi from here too, although we've already spoken a little! ;D I'll be making some cards for the members very soon, when I can find some free time.
I'm glad you like card collecting, I like it too, it's kinda fascinating! Plus I like Bleach very much!! :)

@Yozhik
Hi Natalya, seems we share the same name! :) Only here in Greece it's Natalia. I love Russia, I haven't yet been there, but I have many friends from there that I have met through youtube. But we've been talking for ages now, so it's almost like we've met. One is from Saint Petersburg too. The others are from Moscow. So I plan on learning Russian and visiting one day! :)
I had sort of a bias against anime as well and I only started recently thanks to a friend of mine who happens to be in this forum, Sakura.
I also like astrology, my mom studies it for 3 years now, and I try to follow as much as I can. I have my moon in Virgo btw.

@Kitty
I see you're into astrology too! Wow, I think I should open up a thread or something soon. :D I want to cosplay as well, but I haven't done it before and I'm a bit confused. Me and my friend want to do Ciel and Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji! :)
Sailor Moon was my first series too, Cardcaptor Sakura as well, although back then I didn't know what they really were. Have fun in the forums! :)

@gilas

Hi János! Wow I've been in Hungary once and it was amazing, I loved it!
Seems like we pretty much share the same interest in music, I love alternative rock as well, I also enjoy metal, but I'm also guilty of enjoying some screamo bands! xD I'm not emo though! :P I want to learn Italian too, my mom speaks it, it sounds so nice! :)
Have fun in the forums! ;))

Hey Jmac is the username and discovering all things ecchi is my game!

I'm 29 old american thats been watching anime for about 24 years now. I pretty much play around on mal as a card maker (it helped me to get to know people on mal that have the same interests as me).

I'm not an otaku, but I tend to keep my anime watching a secret from everyone else, b/c of the old western stigma of anime fan.

My fav show is Clannad.

Mai 2 top waifus is Luka Megurine and Mio Akiyama. Everyone after those two are a part of my personal harem or current love obsession haha.

I don't know, because I watch animes since babyhood. My first animes was perhaps Jungle Book, Viking Vickie, ... I know animes, when dragonball comes out. But yeah, I watched animes before dragonball xD

Hi Panda, welcome to the forum, you have a really interesting nickname. Besides animes we seem to have another common field of interest: it's computer science. I'm not a professional of it, but I studied Windows Server 2003 and have little knowledge of Linux.
So if it doesn't bother you we could discuss about computer science, too, as I would like to become a System Administrator. Which animes do you like?

Panda isn't really interesting ... Bioinformatic students give me that name, because:
> I'm the only asian guy, who studies computer science => I'm an endangered species/student
> it sounds funny or stupid
> I'm asian
> my name is too long to remember and it's difficult to call
> it's a shortcut of my real name

About computer science:
Yeah, we can discuss about computer scinece. You can create a topic/thread in this club or post on my profil. We can speak in German, if you want to (in English or German, please).

About animes:
You can watch my anime list ... There are many animes I like xD

Welcome to the club!! I'm so glad you joined! :) You must be the youngest member!! yay!!
Oh wow! You've got roots in so many countries, that sounds awesome! :O
I'm not sure if I can pronounce your dog's name though.. xD ahaha But I have two cats and I love them, so I hear ya, pets are adorable!
Hope to keep seeing you around in the forum! :D ~We Kuroshitsuji fans should stick together and spread the love! hehe~

@Jmac
Hey there! Welcome, welcome! :D I love making stuff in Photoshop, cards etc too. And since you love it too, you could give me a hand in helping me make the cards for our club! ;D

I understand why you say there is a stigma about anime, but I don't know why I would have to sit and hear about mindless gossip with other people, instead of talking about a form of art and entertainment, that is anime!
So I talk a lot about it, but I try not to get too annoying.. :P And I wouldn't care less what other people think, really... Plus once, out of nowhere in a party, I met another anime fan my age, and it was soooo cool talking about all the stuff we loved! xD You never know were you'll meet one.. ;)
I don't share the same love for ecchi though.. sorry.. probably cause i'm a girl! :PP
Have fun around! :)


@Nekro-Nin
Καλωσήρθες! wow your Greek there had me staring at my screen for a while! I thought I hadn't seen right! I must say very very impressive!!! :O
Do you know more words in Greek? In any case, thanks for writing a phrase in Greek, i really appreciated it! :)

Wow, your studies are soooo amazing, I think it's one of the studies of the future! :)
Plus, yYou know LOTS of stuff there, nice! :O

Ich hatte Deutsch in meine Schule gelernt, aber jetz habe ich das meistens vergessern.. :/ Es ist einfach traurig, aber möchte ich bald, mehr Unterricht zu tun.
Ich finde es toll dass du aus Asien kommen!
Viel Spaß in unserem Club!

Hope I didn't kill German so much.. xD hahaha I've forgotten most of it.. :P
Anyway, have fun around! :D

Sup.
I'm 23, female, and I live somewhere in Europe.
My name's Mayda and I was born in January (a stubborn Capricorn, it is). Even though I have a spring month in my name, I don't like spring time that much (cuz I'm effing allergic to pollen >.<)
If I remember correctly my first anime were Sailor Moon and DBZ but that was when I was a kid and had no idea what anime was. I hadn't become a real anime fan until many years later, just when I finished high school and stumbled upon the Hellsing anime somewhere on the Internet. I thought 'This damn thing is good, let's find more' and so another unsuspecting soul was dragged into the inescapable world of animu.
I don't like watching TV so I usually watch anime on PC in my free time.
Apart from anime, I'm interested in:
- different languages an cultures.
- love reading - be it books, Italian comics or manga (I'd like to use this occasion to thank all of them for ruining my eyesight).
- when bored I listen to music (I don't have a genre I prefer the most, but I do favour several Japanese musicians as well as Russian; other than that it pretty much depends on the mood, sometimes I like techno/trance, other times it's classical, or hard rock or even pop) or mess around with Photoshop.
As for activities which don't involve my PRECIOUS PC, I like hiking (though I don't have much time for it), occasionally going to gym, riding bike (well, not atm since I crashed the most recent one), drawing, taking photos etc.
-a cat lover, I've always had at least one as a pet, currently that position is occupied by a lazy and conceited black and white tomcat called Schwartz.
- sweets addict - I could live solely off of them (yeah, I know how HEALTHY that is)
- pretty much a loner by nature, I don't mind spending time with friends but I'm also fine on my own.
- I can forget a wallet but never my mp3 player <3
- F1 fan
- love traveling, doesn't matter where as long it's a place I haven't been to
- HATE getting up early in the morning

Apparently I also love writing, since this thing here is not a post but a goddamn essay(¬_¬) Hence, I shall stop here.

Mayda, you are most welcome. yet another reader and writer (and post all the goddam essays you want, they are enjoyable) is nice to see on here. i'd put this club against any in literary talent...anyways, back to you, since you love languages you should check out the thread we have here. i love travel as well (future thread perhaps). hope you stay active and are more careful on your bike next time =P

Thank you for the welcome, Dominic.
Oh, so there is a topic about languages here! Sweet, will post in it when I have more time.
I'm not extremely active on MAL when it comes to posting, but will try to frequent this club since I find it interesting (well, more than most clubs here).
