Hi, I'm Katashi....yes thats my real name, no I'm not Japanese.
I've been a box member for almost 3 yrs now, but I don't really talk much or participate in alot of the weird threads. I am however really hardcore about rules, and like to go balistic on nubs, and retards that know better and break them everyday. heh Sometimes I'll also disappear from posting for weeks/months at a time while I'm busy playing the latest MMO or new RPG. Only stopping in to see what I'm missing, but not replying!
I am a Japanese freak, I love everything about Japan's culture, history, lifestyles, etc I'm working on learning their language but its going really slow for me. I'm trying to locate local Japanese students or residents in my area to work 1-1 or 1-several to help with my language skills, but unfortunately where I live there are tons of Chinese, Taiwanese, Koreans and very few Japanese. Still, I'm friends with many of them, and help with their English when they ask!
J-Pop has grown on me quite alot over the past few yrs and quite frequently the only music I listen to anymore. I do like some of the more hardcore J-Rock/J-Pop from Koda Kumi, and the recent Kitade Nana album. My 3 favorite artists are Utada Hikaru, Hamasaki Ayumi, & Tamaki Nami...
I am a sig/ava maker for several sites around the internet, mostly for Fantasy MMO's, Asian Drama sites, and some Anime Forums....if u've seen my work here [mostly my own changing every several days] u prolly wouldn't recognize my sigs from other places, as I like to use a different style depending on what the sig is for!
I'm hardcore into Mecha [Gundam mostly] & Samurai [Historical] anime, but I do like the occassional comedy/school/vampires! I also really like Japanese Drama TV shows, and frequent D-Addicts site for the latest.
Well ^thats^ some of me for now...if u want to know more, just ask!
