I’m Brand your somewhat elderly weeb here. I’ve been watching anime since the early 90s and reading manga for almost as long. I used to have a massive manga collection (1200+ volumes) but sadly had to downsize my life. Manga is still a hobby I greatly enjoy. I love learning about the history of anime and manga. I often enjoy titles that are even more old-school than myself.

I love to play video games; the system doesn’t matter for me. I love JRPGs, CRPGS, adventure, puzzle, and card games. Right now, I am really in the Yakuza series. My mainstay series are the Shin Megami Tensei/Persona games. Fun fact I’ve played Persona 5 to completion three times. I also host the podcast “I Love This Terrible Game.”

I am very into a lot of arts and crafts type of stuff. I love to draw, color, cross stitch, sew, and more. I often combine my arts and crafts with my love of anime, manga, and video games.

I run a few clubs on MAL such as the Hidden Gems of Anime and the Hidden Gems of Manga. Come check them out.

Just wanted to say "thank you" for the Hidden Gem manga club. :) I do not comment often but I always put at least one title on my PTR list and am happy such a club exists and is kept alive by you and the other users.

I'm the person who zawa asked about the shipping for firefighter daigo, I was hoping youd hold them until Tuesday evening, I'm 80% sure I'm going to be able to buy them, unless some unforeseen problem arises. anywho, have a nice day.
