General Forum / Re: What got you started into Anime?
« on: December 15, 2006, 03:07:44 am »
I can't remember what my first Anime series was.  It was like DB or DBZ.  As a child I watched Anime on and off, never really keeping up with any particular series regularly except for around 6th grade when the Pokemon craze started...

I guess you could say my first "moe" experience was with Misty from Pokemon, which amuses me to this day because Tsundere characters are still my favorite.  Anyways, after I got over the Pokemon phase I really didn't watch Anime much at all, except occasionally I would watch Gundam Wing and that Anime with the ditzy Galaxy patrol chick.

It wasn't until senior year of HS that a friend from my Warcraft III Clan gave me a link to a site with DDLs to fansubbed Naruto.  I watched like the first season on and off and didn't really get into it at first because college applications and all that jazz kept me preoccupied.  However, after starting my freshman year of college I started watching it again and I got hooked.  I made it up to like episode 168 and started feeling the fillers, so that's about the time I started appearing on IRC and engrossing myself in the Anime community.... consuming series after series... I also attribute my insane consumption of Anime to my posse... yeah I have a posse - they're a bunch of Anime otaku at my Uni lawl.

Theoretically, if I were to get one I would probably get a Wii since I want to sword fight!  However in reality I probably won't be getting any console simply because it's not in my budget.

Ok, I generally find philosophy pretty boring, however how I see it is that whether or not a person sees Light 's actions as justified depends on whether or not you agree with the belief that "the ends justify the means".

Really, this whole argument/stance boils down to this philosophical question.

Well all I want is spending money for when I go to Katsucon in February and Otakon in August... which fortunately my parents have agreed to give me instead of presents for Christmas ^_^;  So a few hundred bucks in my bank account = awesome.

SMF has moved past the Release Candidates and has released the official version of 1.1.  So this software is pretty out of date :(.

My name is Michael and I'm 19.8 years old.  I'm currently a sophomore Computer Science/Mathematics major/minor at Longwood University in Farmville, VA.

My hobbies are coding/programming, learning new programming languages, and watching Anime.

I'm relatively new to the Anime scene.  I didn't start watching Anime, in particular fansubbed, regularly until about 1.5 years ago.  Sadly, it was fansubbed Naruto that acted as my "Gateway Anime".  Of course I did watch irregularly on TV dubbed Anime as a child, as well as go through a hardcore Pokemon phase ~7 years ago.  However, I've been coined as a "Monster" on one forum for having consumed a vast amount of Anime in only 1.5 years.

I'm the Founder/President of my University's Anime Club, which became an official organization this Fall.

a)  I decided to register on the L-E forums is mainly due to the fact that I started frequenting about 3 weeks ago, and discovered that the members of L-E are a diverse group of dedicated fansubbers who are easy to talk to and are overall great people.  Another reason is because I recently left a forum/community that I had been at for more than 3 years, and so I'm currently looking for a new place to call home.

b)  It's actually extremely hard for me the list my favorite Anime series because there are so many, so I'll just list random ones that I've listed on my Facebook profile:

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora, Voices of a Distant Star, Saiunkoku Monogatari, Golden Boy, Ginban Kaleidoscope, REC, Lamune, I``S Pure, Death Note, Starship Operators, Zero no Tsukaima, Kaleido Star, Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, School Rumble, Fate/Stay Night, Shakugan no Shana, Shingetsutan Tsukihime, Scrapped Princess, Love Hina

c)  I like a broad range of genres.  However, in particular I enjoy Romance (can't be too blatantly shoujo) and Romantic Comedies.  Thus, I'm always looking for good Romance and Romantic Comedy Animes.

d)  I'm always looking to procrastinate, so on average I'd probably visit/post daily.

EDIT:  My IRC nick is mds820

EDIT2:  Hey, I'm not a nOOb!  I'm a newb!
