    Argh...sounds tough! I'm not really good with computers apart from the basic forum, youtube etc.
    Yeah, I could see how that may be a bit hard to get over...xD Alucard is pretty f'ed up! :P
    I agree that they usually do, but it's just generally not compatable with the western sense of humour, so some jokes just go over my head.

    I totally agree! Crispin Freeman is really good actually, but then again, I haven't watched the subs, so I don't know what the original "Orange boy" sounds like! xD
    I think it really depends on the genre as well. With quite a lot of animes which have a comedic element it is better to watch them in the dub as they edit the jokes a little bit so that we can understand them, as some jokes are concerning cultural matters in Japan. I might start watching Gurren Lagann in the dub then, once I've finished watching these other series!
    How are you doing?

Biography
I live in the wilderness of New England, where there is 3MB/s for the entire county. Also it was difficult to "hang out" with friends anywhere besides school due to distances, so I treasure my social interactions whenever they come. My family's impression of anime is that of the low-budget ones like the first seasons of Digimon, so my interest is slightly looked down upon (or maybe they're condescending because I'm the youngest. I don't know)

I try to keep humble, as I don't like people who brag. But occasionally I do squee in joy at one of my works, only to find out later that it sucks. I am my own worst critic. I started drawing because I saw this one older kid draw something cool, and I wanted to do the same thing (monkey see, monkey do, monkey throws it's... you get the idea). When it comes to drawing I am a perfectionist, but I'm also a little lazy :)

In Spring of 2012 I had a perspective shift in my view of art thanks to a College professor who admitted he was senile, and by the time the semester ended there were 25% of the original students left (about 50% left the first day) due to his eccentric, "Nothing is sacred" manner. Because of that many don't like him, but I found his lectures informative, and the critical thinking modes he introduced I am beginning to understand, use and enjoy.

I enjoy various types of anime. The Shonen genre is fun, but I also love psychological stuff like Serial Experiments Lain, Ergo Proxy, and the not-well-known stuff like Armitage-III and Saikano. Much of the modern popularized anime seems to focus on a harem aspect, which while amusing can get repetative if nothing is done to add interest (robots anyone?) The anime that was my "gateway drug" (as it were) was Spice and Wolf. I had never watched anything before with character interactions like in that show. In some sense it made me emotionally mature. Now a little over 2 years later I've watched well over 60 series (some of them not as great as Spice and Wolf).

I like all sorts of music (No rap or techno, thank you), but I have a soft spot for distorted vocals like Disturbed, Lordi, or emo-types like LostProhets or The Automatic. I also find J-pop really catchy, even though most of the time it isn't English and I can only a word here and there (Fade sings in English). Oh yes, and anything with a choir backing up the main vocals is a "must listen" in my book.

So much writing... so much for "A few details about yourself", eh?
