Favorite genre of anime/manga: Shounen, fighting, gaming, sports, action, adventure and comedy! (Basically i like anything thats fun to watch and has a good story if possible)
Hated genre of anime/manga: Ecchi/hentai/harem/fanservice, sorry pplz i'm just basically not a pervert! Yeah shocking isn't it? A non perverted guy like me who gets eye bleeds instead of nose bleeds....lol go figure! XP
Preference of watching: English dub ftw! :P
History about me: My first anime was ninja robots that aired on CN back when i was a little kid and of course they aired all 41 episodes in english. It was my first favorite show ever. Later on like most people i got into watching pokemon/dbz and as i grew older i realized they were different than your everyday shows except i didn't knew much about anime back then nor the meaning of the word. Since it was mostly CN that i relied on, all i could get out of anime were shows like pokemon, digimon, dbz, bakugan and beyblade so naturally my taste for these kind of shows grew on me and i still have it even though i've expanded alot compared to back then.
I also grew quite desperate for them, these shows had something which all other CN shows lacked: Story! It was the very reason why i desperately tried to keep up with each airing and i always tried to find ways to reschedule my life to suit these airings!
(Quite pathetic me is, I know! But do note that i was still quite young back then >.>)
A couple of years ago, i thought to myself that chasing around after airings wouldn't really be a good way for me to spend my time especially when i have better things to do like studying, so i decided to hop over to the internet! (which i have to say, i practically never relied on much in the past due to the obsolete PC/net speed i had)
It was until that day i had discovered sites that stream my shows online, then the encoding groups for my favorite shows and finally FORUMS!! My life was literally about to take a turn, i was no longer liable to stay glued to the TV, i had finally gained absolute freedom over my shows! And as if that weren't awesome already, i was also on the verge of later discovering other shows and then soon enough i had pretty much become an anime fan! :P
(Except no way in hell would i allow myself to be classified as an otaku! =P )
My Online Life: I started out as your everyday active member on forums, from spamming to actual contributing. Then i got interested in the GFX department, i'm a photoshop user for over 2 years and have passed my time by making plenty of forum signatures for ppl and myself.
I'm generally fond of arts/design as i like to make anything which can be expressed as a form of art be it in pictures, videos or even music! I practice quite frequently in those fields, my oldest though has to be in trying to draw the manga i've been making for over 4 years. It was pretty rough around the edges during the first stages but finally i patched up the story and all i need to do now is get my hands the skill to draw em!
My recent work is involved in remixing/amv making, i got lured into it quite a while back but sadly due to my lack of timings i rarely got the chance to play around with them enough to learn them better. I still do some experimenting every now and then but thats all i could do since my studies kill most of my time and lol obviously i have my anime too which i rather be watching.
I also have my website which i've kept under construction for many months now, you can blame that on the lack of manpower since i'm the only guy running it. Its a hobby site which is soon to be a big one, all i can say right now is that it'll have many fields/subdomains and yes anime will be involved. (Piracy may not be a part though since i rather keep it as legal as possible)
My Tools Of The Trade: Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe AE CS3, Sony Vegas Pro 10, FL Studio 9, Manga Studio EX4 and Paint.net
