Yay, another Anime fan. Ooh, I noticed you like to sleep too. Very cool.


Yeah, I know. It is kinda becoming a habit of mine. I hope to one day master the art of sleep. I wake up in the middle of the night at about 3 AM every night and stare at the clock for a breif second and then go back to bed. I wake up all tired and everything. I am still just an amature. I will learn sleep...
If there is a person in the world who does not like Anime (in some shape, form or fashion) I would like to meet that person and prove them wrong.

Note: This is not an invite to challenge me at all. It is just a saying. (please don't hurt me) *Coveres head with arms and crouches down*


If there is a person in the world who does not like Anime (in some shape, form or fashion) I would like to meet that person and prove them wrong.

I know lots of people. Well, actually, it's not even that they don't like it, it's that they won't even give it a chance. Why? Partly out of ignorance. They don't want to understand what it's all about. Most already think they do. They think it's "oh, just a cartoon; I can't take that seriously; it's for little kids..." When I hear that, it just drives me crazy. It's like saying "Computers are just a toy for little teens to share music and play MP3s. No good can come of it." It sounds pretty ignorant. You want to grab the person by the shoulders, sit them down, and explain to them the millions of reasons why they're wrong.

Too many ignorant people think it's for little kids. They can't see themselves watching it because they think it'll make them immature. I think the reason for this belief is due to Americanized versions of Anime. Americanized versions of Anime ARE for children. They filter out so much seriousness out of the original versions, all you get is handful of fudge. Anime such as Pokemon, Digimon, and others that have been marketed to death here in America give a wrong illusion of what Anime is to adults. This is quite sad. Some of the best stories I know come from Anime. Whether it's horror, melodrama, comedy; it has it all!


well im not goin to say im a huge fan of anime but i dont mind watching it once in awhile. as for the it being cartoon thing i dont see whats wrong with that i love cartoons they dont make you immature. some ppl jst need to realize that cartoons arent jst for kids anymore and actually started out for adults, cartoons are fun to watch. but im not saying anything bad about anime here so dont take this the wrong way :) i like some anime and i have a buddy who is a huge fan of anime and used to go to all sorts of cons :)


Cool, another Anime fan. Anime is different from american cartoons. They usually cover strong morals in life. As much as I also like "Sponge Bob Square Pants," strong morals is something that I could get from such a show.

Yu-Gi-Oh YTCS (GBA), Severance: Blade of Darkness (PC) Xcom: Apoc (PC), They are too numerous to all say up. But It truly is and are the most awesome of games I have ever experienced.:p

Stuff you Dislike: People who are hotheaded, unpolite in a formal way, Sometimes..girls, they inflict most pain. Skaters, persons who take it a little too personally. People who address you wrongly or call you names just because they're bored.


Too many ignorant people think it's for little kids.

I completlely agree with that. Many people see an anime on TV and see the censored version. Like Tenchi Muyo... That is HEAVILY censored. So is the series Fooly Cooly. I think that alot of people need to give anime a chance and not think that it is only for kids. But I will say this: The worst US anime, or the US' worst attempt at an anime would have to be Totaly Spies on Cartoon Network (but I will admit that I do watch it sometimes, when I am bored).

In an attempt to procrastinate homework (and to pass the time while compiling apache and php most recently) I have been posting a bit around here, so I figured it was time for me to properly introduce myself:

Oh, and for fun I added a couple extra items to the list: Pets, Mode of Transportation, and Favorite Article of Clothing.

Name: Michael
Hair/Eyes: Brown
Age: 26

Location: Southern Vermont

Job: Academic Technical Support at The School for International Training

Education: BA in CS at Marlboro College, will finish my MS in Internet Engineering at The Marlboro Graduate Center in . . . two weeks!!!!

Relationship Status: Recently Married (June 5th)

Fav. Music: Classic Rock, Country, Hip Hop, Folk, Techno/Electronic/Ambient . . . pretty much everything.

Fav. Movies: The Princess Bride, Ice Age, PCU, Office Space ("PC Load Letter?!?!")

Fav. TV Shows: Scrubs, Survivor, I love the 70/80/90's.

Hobbies: backpacking, hiking trail construction, horseback riding, vid-games, all things linux, stone-wall construction.

Pets: 1 dog: Jake 1/2 Newfoundland, 1/2 German Sheppard. 2 Cats: Pippin (always in trouble), and Carabiner (he climbs everything).

Mode of Transportation: Toyota Tacoma 4x4 -- when you live on a dirt road (mud road in the spring), and can have lots of snow 4x4 is kinda required.

Favorite Article of Clothing: A nice pair of worn-in, reinforced knee Carhartt Work Pants.

DisLikes: black-fly season (those little buggers hurt!), Really hot and muggy days (give me 65 degress and breezy please!), the Garden State Parkway -- I didn't know the meaning of Toll until I had been there!

Why I hang out here: I spend a great deal of my time during the day disinfecting viruses and spyware from people's computers. The stuff is really nasty, and a total pain to get rid of. If half the home users in the world went out and got Antivirus Software (AVG), and protected themselves (Windows Update), virus outbreaks would not be as serious, and computing would be safer. My goal is to help users towards that vision.

. . . Besides, a few people helped me out a whole lot when I first got into computers, and the best way I can thank them is by helping others.

A thought or three:
Bored minds do strange things.

If you see a blonde stopped at one of those "do not pass" signs, well you know she can read.

I do agree that everyone likes Anime in some form or another... There seems to be enough for everyone's various tastes.

I've been on here for a while, something to do whilst at work, so I thought I'd make an introduction..
My name is Dave, the nick is Szukalski because he is the greatest artist I know.
I have a BSc in CS and work with pc's each day, but my real passion is music and anthropology to a certain extent. I have been playing guitar for over ten years now and am proficient in progressive music. (ie. Zappa, Dream Theater, Tool, The FLower Kings, Rush)
Physically, I am dolichocephalic and leptorrhinic, and my welsh and dutch heritage accounts for my height which is about as tall as you want to go without hitting your head on things.
I live in little ole New Zealand, a nice little country with good genetic resources. It's a nice place to live, but you never get any good bands coming over, just mainstream commercial ventures.
Superficiality sucks, as does ignorance, but I'm not exempt from those diseases.
"So come up to the lab. And see what's on the slab.
I see you shiver with antici... pation!
But maybe the rain isn't really to blame
So I'll remove the cause, but not the symptom"
