Hello, I have been a member for almost a year. Only used it to watch shows and then turned it off. My user name is a bit rushed, it's just my fav character and my first name.

I want to be more active and social, so I've made a profile finally lol. Could use some buddies to talk anime, video games etc...

I like anime, Japanese culture (like most people here I imagine lol) and video games. The first anime I saw was Pokemon on TV when I was a school kid, but at the time I just thought it was a cartoon. I really got into anime about ten years ago when I watched Neon Genesis Evangelion and Naruto and been hooked ever since.

I've seen loads, some of my favs are; Eureka Seven, Spirited Away and Ghibli collection, Welcome to the NHK, Watamote, Full Metal Alchemist, Great Teacher Onizuka (loved the drama ones too), Gurren Lagann, Black Lagoon, Knights of Sidonia, Attack on Titan, Haikyuu, One Punch Man, rom coms and loads more lol.

My favourite video game is Final Fantasy 7, love that game. Currently game on my Xbox one and every now and then on my 360. Other recent favs are; Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Sunset Overdrive, Borderlands 2 remaster, etc.. Getting back into multiplayer like cod and halo after doing a year long True achievements competition, The GTASC.

I went on Holiday/Vacation to Japan in 2008 for 2 weeks and loved it. I went to Tokyo, Kyoto, Climbed Mt Fuji, Matsumoto, Kamikouchi (spelling is prob wrong for this one). It was amazing, would love to go back.

Music I like - Skrillex, 5 Finger Death Punch, Maximum The Hormone. Also when in the mood I like traditional Chinese and Japanese music. I like listening to BBC Radio 1 also.

Saw the new Star Wars film last week and started to get back into Star Wars and start to watch the other six movies.

Sorry if that was a bit long winded lol, nice to meet you. I'll check this tomorrow as it's late now.

I can be glad to be a buddy. I'm reading the great teacher onizuka now and it's soo funny but great overall.
Planning on watching the new star wars. I'm still waiting for AOT2...that's gonna be awesome. For naruto I'm currently (anime wise) on episode 375, I read the manga since there is more content then what can be showed in the show and a lot less fillers. Getting back on track, yeah you can add me if you want.

Cheers Foxtamermanny I'll add you. Yeah GTO is one of the best comedies, he is such a great character too. I'm waiting for Naruto to get back to the main story, I used to read the manga for it but the website I used shut down. So I switched back to the anime, I want to see what happens next. As soon as you get back into it, it switches back to filler. Gets frustrating lol. AOT is an amazing show, seriously can't wait for season 2. I enjoyed Star Wars ep 7, it will be interesting to see where the story goes next.

Other than anime and an interest in Japanese culture, we don't seem to have much in common. I listen to a couple songs by Five Finger Death Punch and Skrillex. I also watched the new Star Wars movie (though I don't know why--I hate the others). I'm not a gamer, either. If you still want to add me, feel free.

room for one more in this friendship group?

I'm a huge fan of naruto and currently waiting for the fillers to end though that being said I like the whole alternate universe kind of thing currently happening in the fillers where naruto and sauske are probably going to still duel it out even in a world where sauske doesnt leave the leaf village right away.

I saw the star wars movie and I liked it. I kind of read some of the books so I a bit of whats to come or the direction I think they will take it to.

I think that its awesome lee that you've been to japan I honestly want to go there so bad. This year will be the traveling year. Ive already begun saving some money to do these things

I have also never gone to a convention and does cos play. I definitely want to do that

Thanks Iggy and LoveLive I'll add you both

Ah yeah Iggy the never ending fillers kill me lol, loose interest and just as it draws you back in boom! filler. I'll have to check a out to see if I like the current filler.

Yeah Japan was great fun. I hope you get to go there and have a great time. Same here I have never been to a convention either, never had anyone into it to go with. Not sure if it would be strange for someone who is 31 to go or if its a wide variety of ages who attend. I haven't cos played either, don't really feel like doing it. I like to see others do it though and the awesome stuff they come up with.

I like anime music too LoveLiveIdol. I like watching amv's on youtube, or listening to osts from anime's. That's cool that you have it seven times. I've just seen it once at IMAX. First IMAX movie I saw and it was amazing. Yeah JRPGs were all ways my favourite but I have neglected them recently. Xbox hasn't released many recently, will have to get a PS4 eventually for the JRPGs (especially for FF7 remake).

You can add me. I'm relatively new to this too haha. You're taste in anime is similar to mines, and have some that I plan to watch. The video games you played are great with alot of them being ones I want to play soon. So you're a gamer too huh? And the Japan trip sounded very fun and unforgettable. I'd love to go there one day.

Cool, thanks dub added. Yeah I have Xbox one and 360. It's worth saving the money for, go for 2 weeks if you can because the plane ticket was expensive.

Hey there Cloud-Lee, just passed by and saw this.

We do have something in common which is good! From Japanese culture to anime to video games etc. Having a Japanese distant relative instantly hooked me to their culture. It was like love at first sight - I'm not joking. My very first anime was Detective Conan and it's still one of my favourites. I like Pokemon too but I stopped watching it since Diamond and Pearl - can't catch up with it. I have never watched some of the animes you've listed but I've heard of them at least, I wouldn't try to list them as there's a lot from your list.

Moving on I love Final Fantasy too, if you didn't know. My fav. is probably the same as yours reason being is Sepiroth and with the remake coming up he's way more hotter! Gosh, I think I'm melting. I also like Witcher 3 but I don't think it's available on PS3. I'm looking forward for the open beta of Tree of Savior - looks so cute and gorgeous! Brill game but very grindy - just how I like!

With your music choice never heared of them. I also like tradional Chinese and Japanese song. As I was reading this paragraph, you mentioned BBC 1 and I was like rewind, wait what!? BBC 1 as in BBC 1?! So, I was like, scroll up scroll up and checked where you at and my reaction was: I see that's why!

And I'm not a big fan of Star Wars so let's leave it that way.

I haven't been to Japan, how I wish but I'm planning and saving up for it. Probably going end of this year or next year. I only have to worry about my plane ticket but the rest are sorted. I think cheapest time to travel would be end of Jan to early Feb. and October is quite cheap as well. The expensive season are probably the obvious one summer (mainly due to the festival season in Japan - forgot what it's called) as well as the Hanami season - Cherry Blossoms (Mar-Apr-May) depending on which part of the country.
