No voddas, unfortunatly I was born here in Arkansas Wink . Most of my family are of Irish dsecent with some French and Cherokee I think. There's alot of red hair in my family and it seems that I didn't get that. I'm weird that way I guess. on the topic of Seed and Destiny, Seed was atleast tolarable. The thing I didn't like about Seed was that almost all the characters looked the same, sans haircut and haircolor. I saw Seed after seeing the original Gundam, so when I watched Seed, it seemed to be a rehashing of the original with brighter colors. Another thing about both Seed and Destiny I didn't like was that some characters should be dead four times over! I don't mean that they had close calls, I mean when your reactor vaporizes half your mobile suit, you should be dead! Enough of a rant. Seed isn't that bad if you don't mind what I mentioned. Seed goes into it's own plot in the second half. Destiny is the one to stay away from. Now keep in mind this is my opinion, so go watch what you want. It's always good to see somthing even if it's bad. Atleast you know to steer clear of it in the future Mr. Green .
Code Geass looks intresting. On the cover of August's Newtype they feature Code Geass. For somereason the mecha in the background reminds me of Eva Unit 00.
Thanks to everyone who is welcoming me to here at ANN. Thanks
And now a parting word from Brian Griffin. "Who's leg do I have to hump around here to get a dry martini!" Anime smile

Alrighty, as promised here are the proper welcomes I owe Xenofan 29A and fuzzychief. Welcome to ANN, hopefully our insanity can rub off on you. Wink Hope you learn something new, or just realize how scary anime fans really are lol. As part of the proper welcome process I must give you guys your official mystery welcome bags. ::hands them both a brown bag:: In your bags you'll find the outer flakey shell from a half dozen heads of garlic, just the stems from a bunch of broccoli, some shredded construction paper, and the boiled eyes from an Opah fish. Enjoy. Remember though; Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

Thanks for the welcome. As for scarry anime fans go, that's been conditioned out of me by the anime club that I'm a part of Wink , although the con that we went to (my first) there were no paddle-weilding yaoi girls...
and thats a good thing.
Again, thanks for the welcome.

Pets: None at the moment, but have had rabbits, fish, mice, Guinea pigs and quails.

Hi ANN!

My name is Jesse and I'm very happy to be apart of this wonderful and friendly community. I have always been looking for a forum that dealed directly with news associated anime!

I guess I will elaborate on myself a little: I am a 19 year old identical triplet; and my brothers and I make films. Our company is called Trico Films. We have worked exclusively with multi Emmy Award-winning film composer, Carl Johnson on a few of our films, and have recently been introduced to video game composer, Jeremy Soule. We have also been introduced to Lucasfilm, ltd, Microsoft Studios, and PBS in the past.

I love anime. My brothers and I have always been into it since we were about 9 (around the time when the SciFi Channel was airing their late-night anime runs in the mid to late 90's). I started off watching classics such as DBZ and Gundam, but moved on to more sophisticated shows later. I actually just finished Neon Genesis Evangelion and End of Evangelion for my first time a few days ago (in Japanese w/ subs --the best way to watch IMO). And I have to say.. that show emotionally drained me. Such a masterpiece, indeed. I can't wait for Rebuild of Evangelion. Hopefully that makes it to the U.S. shortly after its initial release in Japan.

So yeah, enough of me... I'm happy to join you guys and hope to stay in touch on the forum. You guys rule! Kamehameha! Cool.

EDIT: If any of you guys are interested in our work, please check us out at www.tricofilms.com

Oh, I suppose I should do this too since I haven't yet...

Name: Jerry

Sex: Male

Location: near Seattle

Marital Status: Single

Age: Just turned 40 Crying or Very sad I thought making that number really small would somehow make it less painful.

Um. Yeah. Not working...

Religion: Raised Catholic, but I'm not much into organized religion.

Drink: Oh, yes please. What are we having? Actually, I don't drink much.

Smoke: Ewwww.

Likes: Lots of stuff (aside from anime): Travel, very amateur photography (preferably at the same time), hanging out with friends, road trips (I love to drive), learning new things. Why is this question so hard to answer?

Dislikes: Stupid, ignorant, mean, annoying people. They are why I had to get out of retail before I went crazy. On a related note, I loathe WalMart.

Favorite Anime: Haibane Renmei, Kino's Journey, Azumanga Daioh, Gunslinger Girl, and I've only seen the first disc so far but Mushishi is looking promising.

Favorite Manga: Mushishi. It's my least favorite too. In fact, it's the only manga I have read even one complete volume of.

Favorite Games: Cribbage. Pinochle. I can play cards for hours. For video games I liked Final Fantasy Tactics both on the Playstation and the Gameboy Advance. I'm looking forward to the PSP version.

Favorite Drink: Diet Coke. With caffeine in the morning and without later in the day.

Favorite Foods: Chocolate. Everything else is a pretty distant second. I just wish they could come out with a chocolate that has the nutritional value of broccoli. Not that I dislike broccoli, but it's just not chocolate now is it? I also like a lot of Japanese food, Lebanese food (it's similar to Greek), and if I'm going to eat a big meal out I'd pick breakfast over anything else.

Favorite Sport: I'd much rather be playing sports than watching them, but I'll sit down to a Seahawks (American football), or Mariners (baseball) game now and then. I loved to play (American) football when I was in school, but there's not much opportunity any more. I'd like to find a softball or (soccer) football team to play on but instead I just ride my bike a lot.

Favorite Authors: I love to read and my tastes are pretty varied. It's hard to pick a favorite but some that I enjoy are: Gabriel Garcia Marquez (especially his short stories), Charles Dickens, Mark Twain. When I want something less literature-ish: Anne McCaffrey, David Eddings, Steven Greenleaf, Susan Cooper.

Favorite Movies: Unforgiven, El Norte, The Milagro Beanfield War, Mystery Men (cheesy goodness), and I have to admit to being a Star Wars fan.

Fun facts about me: Uhhhhhh....

Random facts about me:
- I visited friends living in Japan in 2001, loved it, got interested in the culture and history, decided to study Japanese, and ended up with a nasty anime addiction.
- When in college I spent a semester abroad at ITAM (Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México) in Mexico City. I lived with a Mexican family and generally had a great time.
- I speak passable (but very rusty) Spanish, and what I guess you could call survival level Japanese.
- I gradually got really fat during my 20s and early 30s and a couple years ago decided I was sick of being the poster child for overweight America. So after a rather scary but quite motivational conversation with my doctor I lost 100 pounds. I'm in better shape now than I was 15 years ago.
- When it's not dark or raining (which given where I live can be rare) I like to ride at least 20 miles a day on my bike.
- I'm told I make wicked good baklava. One of my grandmothers was Lebanese and I make her family recipe every year around Christmas. My hummus is pretty good too, but that's hard to screw up.
- If you are still really interested, there's a lot more in this post from a while back.
