Hello everyone! This is a very belated introduction considering I've been stalking out this forum for a few years now and though I've made a few posts in other threads, most of you may know me from the Marketplace and for my excessive use of bubblewrap! I don't know why I've never actually introduced myself, but I think I was a little nervous and you all seem to have built such a nice little community here, I kinda felt like that new kid in class or at work who doesn't want to butt in >_< I often read threads and think about posting, and then go 'nah, best not' but hopefully in the coming weeks I'll let myself add a little more to the forum rather than just stalking it! Anyway, on with the introduction - Hi, my name is Catherine, though speedyspeck is also acceptable as that is how I'm known on other websites - fun fact, that username is inspired by the names of some sadly now departed pet chickens. I'm in my late twenties and have been into anime since I was about eighteen - I believe it started with my getting into games (Final Fantasy specifically - on which at the time I also make a powerpoint presentation for my best friend on why she also needed to get into the series so I had someone to talk to about it and she in return make a presentation on Farscape) and then onto my first anime series, Azumanga and Cowboy Bebop. It's fair to say I was hooked right from that moment and made up for lost time by buying everything and anything I could get my hands on - a lot of which I no longer own due to me realising that not everything that I'd bought was very good! I'd say I most definitely have a soft spot of romantic comedy and love me some indulgent visual novels, but I do tend to dip my toes in every anime-genre pool because there's usually something pretty great in all of them. My top picks would probably be Azumanga, Mushishi, Lovely Complex, FMP, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Princess Tutu, Gankutsuou, Kids on the Slope, Kamisama Kiss and anything from the Fate/ series. Recently I've been enjoying Nozaki-Kun, Kill La Kill, Bleach, Maid Sama and Rage of Bahamut Genisis. I terms of games, like I said, I love the Final Fantasy Series and Visual Novels but I generally enjoy most RPG's, anything by telltale and recently I've enjoyed completing the new Kings Quest and am also trying to actually get around to finishing the Uncharted series... Anyway I think that's enough yammering!
