Hi all, the name's PokeCrysis, but Poke is fine too.
I've been into anime for about a year as well as reading the odd manga or two and thought it would be kind of cool to join a forum where I could discuss my favourite shows and chill with some rad people.
My favourite shows are currently: Serial Experiments Lain, Steins;Gate, Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (as well as Kai), as well as Watamote and Ore No Imouto Go Konnai Kawaii Waka Ga Nai! (please don't judge me )
My (cliché) favourite voice actors are Crispin Freeman and Steve Bloom.
My favourite music people for anime are Yoko Kanno and Yuki Kajura.
My favourite directors are Tetsuro Araki (cliché I know) and Ryotaro Nakamura.
In manga, (which I don't read a whole pile but go through phases of either reading it all days or not reading it at all) I REALLY like Welcome To The NHK! as well as the rather insane works of Kazuo Koike. I'm currently reading Beck and love it. My favourite mangaka is Naoki Urasawa.
Outside of anime I don't do a whole pile. I spend most of the time playing visual novels nowadays. My current favourites being: 999: 9 hours 9 persons 9 doors, Katawa Shoujo, Saya no uta, Sharin No Kuni Himawari No Shoujo, and G-senjo No Maou.
As well as that I have a fascination with observing humanity's eventual conversion into brains in jars and spend quite a bit of my time reading about tech and such.
Well, thank you for reading my rather long introduction and I hope to get to know you all better and have fun and whatnot.
