The first time I was truly introduced to the vast majority of the internet was through World of Warcraft and, through that, all of my friends. On YouTube, I managed to carve a small impression on the online world through glitching and exploration of games, which lead me to investigate things further than outside that small world. The longest standing relationships I've had were with my friends online, and it is one of the many reasons why I love the internet: we've learned so much more about one another than we could have done in our past. I look forward to a promising future because of this, as the only direction we can go is upwards like a spiral drill piercing the heavens.
I've only gotten into anime and manga as of late 2010, which I admit that I am a Summerfag of /a/. Through this fun, curious and sometimes odd imageboard, so much has been shown to me, and I'm slowly delving into the otaku fandom day by day. My personal goal is to bridge the personal gap between the norm and the deviate, whatever that might be. But for anime, like any good fan, I had a simple reason to get into it, and that was to make me happy. I've a nonsensical love for all things moeblob like K-On! as well as surreal like Clannad as well as the thrilling, heartpounding series like JoJo's and Initial D - I would consider myself a big fan of anime. Do I go to conventions and partake in the obnoxious activities like Caramelldansen trains? Yes, on occasion. But am I a fanatic whose insane passion drive others away from me? Thankfully not! However, do what you want because fun things are fun!
