I live in Southampton in the South of the UK and apart from believing that anime is the font of all human wisdom and happiness, I also enjoy a number of other pursuits, including spending my time on our narrowboat Andante, cruising the Inland Canals and Rivers of the UK. I also try to take time to go fishing, mainly coarse fishing on lakes, canals and rivers for carp, bream, perch, roach, rudd, pike, chubb & barbel during the summer.
Other passions include reading, including some manga and light novels, as well as fiction novels. Some examples of my favourite books would be Lord of the Rings (Feanor is an elven character from Tolkien's world of Middle Earth & Valinor), Terry Prachett's Discworld series, Terry Brook's Shannara series & Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series.
I like most forms of music, but particularly Trance music (used to love Drum n Bass and Happy Hardcore in my younger days but my tastes have mellowed out as I've gotten older; check out following channels for good trancetunes). I used to enjoy going clubbing and to festivals (Glastonbury, Homelands, Creamfields) when my body could cope with all night dancing. Now my idea of a nice evening is chilling out with a beer, catching up on the seasonal anime or something from my backlog of 'plan to watch' shows (a list that seems to never stop growing, no matter how much or how quickly I watch).
I began my anime experience way back when watching series like Dragon Ball Z, and films like Akira & Fist of The North Star. My break-through anime show was Full Metal Alchemist. After watching FMA I started watching anime seriously, and am on a life-time mission to consume all anime, in order to eventually ascend to anime heaven on my death (obviously the after life is akin to a general Isekai anime, where we come back into a fantastic magical world surrounded by a bevy of gorgeous cute girls). Check out my MAL list for all the shows that I'm into.
In respect to random friend requests, please tell me why you're sending me a friend request, I don't much see the point of having lots of random friends in my friend box (what ever it is called). If we have common favourites or enjoy the same genres or shows, then I'd be more than happy to chat anime.
