1. John Steinbeck, George Orwell, and Ernesto Guevara are all big ones for me in terms of writing ambitions. In terms of manga/anime though, Hirohiko Araki and Suzuhito Yasuda are definitely up there.

2. Yes, several if need be, but not sure how I'd post them here as they're all word docs? Sorry, I've never really used Crunchyroll in this manner before. I can always send them personally.

3. Getting more practice in collaborating with artists and other writers on projects. I've become too accustomed to working by myself with no time constraints, I feel.

4. Output definitely. I'm way too slow if deadlines aren't imposed these days.

5. As much as is needed of me, hopefully. I've got a decent amount of free time to contribute towards working for the group.

6. Western animation and films, I suppose. Big fan of Steven Universe, for example.

7. People not fulfilling their commitments I guess? I'm pretty laid back.

8. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Berserk, Acchi Kocchi, GJ-Bu

What are some of your major influences?
Kurt Vonnegut, H. P. Lovecraft, Christopher Nolan, Junji Ito, Fyodor Dostoevsky

Is there an example of your work you are willing to provide?
Absolutely. Anyone wants an example, message me and I'll link you to some on google docs

What are some of your aspirations in joining this group?
To get something done lol. I have tried so many time to get a comic/manga done but there were always something missing. As well, I hope to make this group a successful collective of people working to help each other out.

What are some things you feel you need to improve on?
Nothin' >_>...NO JK! I think my biggest issue is my procrastination. Never worked that out from high school. Hopefully I will here. I don't draw but maybe I could pick up a few tips and tricks. Also maybe how I convey ideas to people as a pitch (I can write like crazy but when someone asks me what it's about, I am like "well, like there is this and this and...wait I need to explain this...but that doesn't make sense if you don't know..." etc.)

How much work do you see putting in?
A LOT! This thing is kind of a brain child of mine. One of our major projects I have been dedicated to for over a year.

What do you see your availability being like for the group?
Any time I am not working. But my schedule is sporadic so I am never sure about what specific times until my schedule is posted.

What are some non-anime/manga related interests you have?
Films (I am a huge film nerd), books, writing in general, Pro-wrestling nerd, Minesweeper, Systematic shapes (long story)

Pet peeves? (figured I'd ask in case some how it becomes relevant lol)
People eating with their mouth open, people shooting down ideas without a solution, passive aggression.

Favorite animes/mangas?
Steins;Gate, Attack on Titan, Hunter X Hunter, Death Note, Cowboy Bebop, Spiral

Time to answer some questions. I both love and hate this part.
What are some of your major influences?
Well Vonnegut is a pretty big example now. It may be odd but Code Geass is probably one of my earlier influences. There are a lot of them but its kind of hard to pin them down so for now that is all I will put.
Is there an example of your work you are willing to provide?
100% Like with Jay send me a PM and I'll hook you up with something, I have a lot of stuff so you may all get different stuff.
What are some of your aspirations in joining this group?
Well I've been here since that fateful day one and back then it was a pipe dream of an anime and community sharing my interests. Now I stay for the hopes of creating something as a community.
What are some things you feel you need to improve on?
Procrastination, finishing things, and dialogue. My dialogue is mediocre, and I start a story but can't finish it for the life of me.
How much work do you see putting in?
I can put in around 2 hours a day on average. I really love this project (and my own ones) so I will be working on them a lot.
What do you see your availability being like for the group?
Available everyday after 4:00 PST. All day Sat. afternoon for Sun.
What are some non-anime/manga related interests you have?
Reading, video games, math my god I love math, and science which I love about as much as math.
Pet peeves? (figured I'd ask in case some how it becomes relevant lol)
Do not under any circumstance call me "Lucas" instead of Luke. Also get the Star Wars jokes out early and be done with them unless we are actively talking about it and throwing jokes around.
Favorite animes/mangas?
Monogatari series, the Rakugo show from this season, Shokugeki was awesome, Code Geass, Death Parade, Hiatus x Hiatus, and many others.

I just joined your group so I'll do this as my introduction.

All Ghibli movies, Katsura Hoshino (D-GrayMan), and Takeshi Obata (Death Note). They are the artists I wish I could become.

I already posted in the creative section recruitment thread, can't figure this forum out though.

Meeting people who want to create!

Far too long of a list, probably toning and page layouts are my top two.

I draw everyday, but I work radically different shifts so it will very greatly. At least 5-10 hours a week minimum.

My work schedule is to random to know.

Soccer, if you Like Barcelona we will get along fine.

Beck, Deathnote, Eureka 7 are my top 3.
