Beware, everything below is incredibly gay and it is probably better for your health that you don't read this.
Hello reader that has stumbled upon my profile, what's up, how's life? The name's Jonathan and I'm a pretty damn tall Japanese-Australian that was born sometime in the late 90s. I'm the hobbyist kinda guy and I've spent my whole life deeply into music, games, film and recently anime.
Forewarning, I guess I'm slightly a harsh critic when it comes to rating, not your average sheep rater. I do perceive a decent anime as a 6/10 and an alright anime as 5/10, my ratings fluctuate a lot as I rate something based on how much I enjoyed it instead, to an extent. I perceive quality from the enjoyment - If I'm not enjoying something it's probably because it's shit. I do try to rate as in what people may call a "quality" sense when it obviously applies of course, for example even though I may dislike something I'm watching, it may bore the shit out of me but it has redeeming qualities that I can't ignore, it will receive a higher rating than the usual. I've seen a lot of stuff I just genuinely regard as shit, so that's why I have a lot of ratings under 5/10, people also tend to call me contrarian because I tend to dislike acclaimed stuff, even though it's actually bad.
Continuing on, a huge key part of my life has always been sport and exercise. I've played an extreme amount of Basketball in my life, I focus playing as a shooting guard (2) - I'm literally Klay Thompson, height and physique wise. I've played rep level since I was around the point of entering high-school and absolutely adore the sport. As I said above I'm tall, specifically 6'6 (198cm) at this current time of 20 years of age so basketball will continue to be the sport for me and the height is perfect for the professional level at the guard positions. I'm also an avid fan of weight-lifting and calisthenics and love working out here and there. Cycling and jump-rope (skipping) are my favourite aerobic workouts. Cycling will always be my all-time favourite, especially track-cycling competitively because of the various effort required making it highly entertaining competitively and relaxing when training by yourself.
I am also an extreme music nerd, a majority of my life has consisted of playing musical instruments and listening intently to everything the music world has to offer. I started getting into music at the very young age of around 5-7 when I first learnt to play the guitar, then at around the age of 12 after playing for awhile and moved on to the drum-kit, which is the main musical instrument I play today (completely self-taught), it's probably one of my biggest hobbies. Of course, I've also been listening to music all my life since I was very young, Radiohead and Tool have always been favourites and inspirations to me. I listen to everything - no exceptions. I like a wide range and variety of music and I honestly don't care what genre it is. My favourite genres of music though are progressive and experimental music, and I tend to always like post-music.
As for friend requests, I do NOT accept RANDOM friend requests. These are just random adds that have no conversation or message attached with them. If you are interested in talking to me, start a conversation on my profile prior to sending a friend request or attach a unique message about why you are adding me with the request. I accept all friend requests that follow these guidelines! At this point I would love to have a conversation with you first to get to know you properly if I haven't previously! :D
IMPORTANT! I never put things "On-Hold" I either keep 'em on watching or I drop them. I use the On-Hold section for random OVAs, specials, bullshit yada yada, that kinda crap to ultimately avoid my list getting clogged with unnecessary shit no one actually really cares about. IMPORTANT!
