Long standing anime fan since back when vhs tapes were NEW. Bet many of you have never even watched a vhs tape have you? I've seen the rise and fall and hopeful rebirth of the anime industry over the years. I've watched genre trends and what is "popular" change many times. As long as there are shows I find entertaining I'll keep being a collector and fan. Beyond anime I am a huge book reader and music fan. I enjoy music from all genres and walks of life. Happen to be particular on my heavy metal, hard rock, and jazz. As for books Science Fiction and Horror are the favs. I also am an avid animal lover and do not tolerate cruelty to animals.
