I'm more than just anime...

Post by 8ftmetalhead on Thu Mar 11, 2010 1:46 pm

The name's Alex. I'm a 1st year computer science student at the auckland campus.
You might have to wait to meet me face to face before you learn my last name and why it suits me so well.
In any case, I recently started collecting a few anime DVD's, around about october of last year.
I've long been a fan of anime, watching whatever free to air would throw out, but I never bought any for myself until I found out JB HI-FI stocks it.
I more enjoy shorter series to ongoing ones when buying dvd's, because I don't want to have to keep on paying to finish a series. Hence why all I have at the moment are 6 box sets that are complete series. But I'm still open to the likes of naruto and whatnot. I just won't buy 'em myself.

Like most of the rest of you Like everyone here, I'm also a gamer. Fantasy, RPG, platforming and MUSIC games are my favs, with a few fighting games thrown in for good measure.

Now, I LOOOOVE ddr. Got into it around december of '08, been playing fairly steadily since. Built my own hardpad out of MDF and wired it to a PS1 controller. Then hunted down all of the PS2 EU Mixes, save for max. So I'm naturally on ddrfreak, ddruk, beatspace, etc etc.
I'm either 8ftsativaist or 8ftmetalhead.

Anyway, that's pretty much what I do. DDR, Games, Uni and more games. With some anime drizzled in between the gaps.
I'm looking forward to meeting you all in and around the place. (especially if anyone's keen for a go on DDR or PIU.)

I watch dvd's in english with english subs. As much as I like japanese, I like being able to get lost in the action and not have to read the subtitles all the time. That said though, I keep them on because extra lines and explanations of parts of the story seem to pop up from time to time. You'd be surprised how many times that happens, where important bits are cut from either the subtitles or the english script. Generally it's the script that's cut though.

And no I haven't met stebung, at least I don't think so.
I'm kinda bad with names, so forgive me if I don't remember more than a few to begin with Smile

Hey Alex, welcome to the club Very Happy

What kind of anime series do you like to watch currently?

*raises hand guiltilty* I do a bit of both, I buy the series I can my hands on but its really hard to find anime in New Zealand, a few of the anime I watch are pretty obscure, I can't even find them on Amazon -hence the downloading/streaming.
