Hello! I'm some random guy that just randomly strolled to this site from searching around in google. Looks like a nice place, so I decided to visit to see how the place truly is. Don't disappoint me now and I hope I don't disappoint either of you!

I've been into anime since I was a kid; I guess my first exposure to the medium is the Spanish-dubbed versions of Saint Seiya and Magic Knight Rayearth. Ever since then I've been hooked, though. My only exposure to anime, at the time, had been marginal at best, like watching the English-dubbed versions of Sailormoon, Samurai Pizza Cats, and a bunch of others that they forced-fed us. Fortunately, my exposure to the animation-style grew from watching the late Toonami and much later Adult Swim, which sucks right now with their horrible "Stoner" comedy-line.

Once I gained access to the "interwebs," my exposure grew much larger than what it had been before. Which, I'm pretty grateful otherwise I would of missed less known, mainstreamed, titles, such as Planetes, Black Lagoon, Eureka Seven (though it was brought to the U.S. somehow), Lucky Star, and Natsume Yujincho. That's pretty much how I got into anime.

Other than that, I'm an aspiring game developer who's barely getting his feet wet into the indie scene. Although, I'm thinking of putting that aspiration on hold and focus on something serious, like getting a gig at application programming or further studying into general IT, like networking. I dunno, the economy at the moment isn't so favoring to a recently software engineering grad'. I guess I could thank to a "couple" of greedy people out there for putting the rest of the world back. I won't get into that since this isn't the place for it. Anyway, thanks for reading this semi-lengthy auto-bio'.

Hiyo, CaretCake. I'm new here as well- so far, this place is rather quiet, but it's pretty good overall. It is really unfortunate, the way the economy is going, but hopefully things will lighten up in time- although that in itself is another debate.

But anyway, nice to meet you- and enjoy your stay here.

Welcome, CaretCake. Your story is a bit like mine, but I was introduced to Card Captor Sakura as my first anime. My exposure to Japanese culture expanded with the internet and I'm glad because I've seen a lot of good series.

Anyways, make yourself at home here. Looking forward to see what you're about.

I knew someone who went into the whole networking field of work. The guy made a lot of money and had a really nice printer that could post huge wallpapers. He then charged people $80 for him to print stuff...

Welcome and hope you enjoy your time here. If you have any questions, just ask.

yes, all anime photos are judged by how many times they are found, a few of the photos i have have only been found either once or three times so that makes them Extremly Rare, while if they are found 4-6 times, they are rare, but if they can be found alot, then they are common, and thank you, and your welcome. i was actully wanting to give someone one of my signatures, it's kinda crappy cuz i was in a hurry, but i tried, i even edit Icons, Banners, and normal photos, uhm, if i may add a photo and show an example of my work?

The images have to be hosted (either in the gallery here or Photobucket) and you place the url from right clicking between this:

[code][image]http://image-url-here.jpg[/image][/code]

Or bellow when making a reply you can add it as an attachment to the post. Then we can click on a thumbnail to view it. I hope the list I gave wasn't to much in your PM. It was pretty big even for me.
