Cordial greetings, PlebianWeeb! Random gaming Youtube channels certainly have their place in this world. You never know who may be searching for footage of a random game that you happen to offer.

Well, I'll chime in here and say some stuff about me. I've recently been commenting more often here, but never participated in these forums before, so I decided, "Why not?" It'll give me a chance to directly meet more people who like anime as much as I do or more.

Name: My username is my name

Gender: Male

Age: Almost 19

Location: Sourthern California

Martial status: Single

Religion: Between atheist and agnostic

Drink/Smoke: Never

Pets: I take care of 3 chihuahuas.

Favorite music: Lots and lots of music. From Louis Armstrong to Rolling Stones to Soft Cell to Linkin Park. Anime music too.

Favorite Sport: Baseball. I root for my home team, the Angels

Favorite games: I mainly play on Sony and Nintendo consoles. My most enjoyed are Bioshock, Super Mario 64, Gran Turismo, Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie, and the Tony Hawk's Skateboarding series.

Favorite Anime: Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni season 1 and Kai, Great Teacher Onizuka, Clannad, Texhnolyze, Kino's Journey, Shirobako, Sound Euphonium, Gurenn Lagann, Konosuba, Seitokai Yakuidomo, and the To Love Ru franchise.

Dislikes: Pretentious people, Hypocrites, and Very hot weather.

Facts about me: I'm going to graduate high school in June, so I wanted to be a bit more social in real life and on the internet. I like discussing various things with other people on shows that I watch, so I am hoping you can welcome me to this site that I just now decided to be a part of. I hope the information above can give you a general idea of my person. Thank you.

Joshua Zarate--

Welcome to the Anime News Network forums! Smile

Query: You write that you live in SoCal, and yet you dislike "very hot weather"; may I ask just how you reconcile those two contradictory facts?

^Well, I usually just try to stay indoors as much as possible whenever it's 90 degrees Fahrenheit or hotter because I'm not a big fan of sweating. I'll be okay going out if there's at least an overcast or if it's raining. But yeah, I appreciate you welcoming me here, nobahn. I hope that I can be able to discuss various things in anime directly with others on this site.

Name: Martin

Sex: Male

Location: London, England

Marital Status: Single

Birthday: 31/05/1998

Ethnicity: 5/8 English, 3/8 Irish

Religion: Agnostic

Pets: A cat which is creatively named "Kitty"

Drink/Smoke: I'm t-total and I don't smoke.

Likes: Procrastinating mostly tbh. I play competitive Pokemon a bit, but for the most part I spend my free time chatting on Discord or watching anime. I like writing about, and talking about, anime.

Dislikes: if I said all the stuff I dislike I'd be here all day.

Favorite anime: Shinsekai Yori (From The New World) (<--If I had to pick a single greatest anime ever made, I'd pick this), NHK ni Youkoso (Welcome to the NHK), Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu season 1, AnoHana, She and Her Cat: Everything Flows, FLCL, Serial Experiments Lain, Neon Genesis Evangelion. Personal picks which I know aren't as good but are very close to my heart are Inazuma Eleven and ERASED.

Favorite game: Pokemon Platinum; there is no contest.

Favorite TV shows/Movies: The Grand Budapest Hotel. Inside Out, Wall-E and Up are up there too though!

Favorite Drink: Ginger ale, traditional lemonade, hot chocolate. Also Coke>Pepsi and if you disagree you're taste sucks :thinking:

Favorite Foods: BURGERS. Also I like most Japanese food 'cause it agrees with my system and always makes me feel healthy.

Favorite Sites: Smogon Forums

Favorite Sport (to watch): Snooker is the best sport.

Favorite Sport (to play): Muggle quidditch (yes, this exists; google it), pool (I suck though hahahaha

Favorite Music: I'm pretty flexible; I'll listen to most stuff. I listen to a lot of Japanese music too, including Vocaloid, non-vocaloid JPop and Japanese classical (the latter is some good shit). I like classical music in general, with my favorite probably being Dvorjak's New World Symphony, but honestly if the song or piece of music isn't utter shit then I will probably like it regardless of genre (I can't take screamo though; sorry metalheads).

Job: Student

Hobbies: Anime, writing about anime, Pokemon, talking about anime, chatting on Discord, listening to music, playing french horn, browsing/posting on Smogon (for context, I have almost 6k posts on there at the time I'm posting this)

Favorite Quotes: I'm not good at remembering quotes, but one which really sticks out to me that I remember is "The Town Without Me" by Hinazuki Kayo (from ERASED)

"When I get bigger, big enough to go somewhere by myself, I want to go to a land that’s far away. I want to go to a faraway land. I want to go to an island that has no people. I want to go to an island that has no pain or sadness.There are no adults, children, classmates, teachers, or my mom on that island. On that island, I can climb a tree when I want to climb a tree, swim in the sea when I want to swim in the sea, and sleep when I want to sleep. On the island, I think about the town I left behind. Kids go to school, as if nothing has changed. Adults go to the office, as if nothing has changed. Mom eats, as if nothing has changed.

"When I think about the town without me, I feel a sense of relief. I want to go far, far away"

Many hearty welcomes, Martin SAE! I find it quite brave, I shall admit, to declare a preference for ginger ale over domestic ginger beer. Why settle for the less gingery of the two varieties?

What are your favourite burgers around town, if I may ask? (I have a fondness for the pineapple burgers they serve at Kua 'Aina, though the sandwiches of Five Guys seems to have become a favourite amongst many here. Covent Garden's Shake Shack left me underwhelmed.)

Name: Micah

Gender: Male

Age: 37

Location: Sourthern Maryland

Martial status: Married

Religion: Between atheist and agnostic

Drink/Smoke: Sometimes, but not all the time

Pets: One chihuahua and two gold fish

Favorite music: Any punk and pop music before the year 2000

Favorite Sport: Baseball

Favorite games: Super Mario World, Mortal Kombat II, Super Street Fighter Turbo, Quake, Crash Bandicoot 2, Undertale, Dragon Quest 4 and Dark Souls III.

Favorite Anime: Super Dimension Century Orguss, Macross, Lupin the Third and Infinite Ryvius

Facts about me:

My first anime was Robotech in the mid 1980's when I was 5 and became a anime fan in 1990 when I was 10. I discover fan subbed and RAW tapes of Super Dimension Century Orguss, Dragon Ball Z, Macross, Blazing Transfer Student, and Edokko Boy Gatten Tasuke. It was Orguss that got me hook into anime back in the early 1990's.

I still enjoy anime, but not as much as I used too. 1990-1996 was the best years of anime for me and I felt 1997-1999 was when anime was losing quality. They focus more on toy driven shows like Pokemon and Shonen titles like One Piece. There is not many anime for grown ups these days. I do like Attack on Titan, KonoSuba, FMA: Brotherhood and One Punch Man though.

I was a bit older at the time; good times, more good times, and and still more good times.

Geez, who knew Maryland was a hotbed of otaku-dom??? Although, it makes sense, I guess. Is Otakon is a pretty big con. Mind you, I guess it's no longer being held in Maryland...
