My name is Erik and I'm a 26-year-old Graphic Design student from Portland, Oregon. Apart from studying, I spend most of my time watching anime, playing video games, building computers, drinking too much coffee, smoking too many cigarettes, and generally being a shut-in geek. Surprisingly, I've been with my girlfriend for 5 years, we have two ridiculously cute cats, and she actually likes anime...not so much the video games, but I keep trying to wear her down and get her to play Shin Megami Tensei. No luck.
I've actually been on BoxTorrents for about 2 years, but only recently thought about giving the forums a shot. I'm very glad that things are still kicking here, since it's easily been one of the most useful sites around for hunting down new anime/manga addictions. Hopefully some of the people here can help feed that addiction even further.
Some of my anime favorites:
Full Metal Panic?
Requiem From the Darkness
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Lunar Legend Tsukihime
Neon Genesis Evangelion
and so on and so on...
I'm not especially familiar with a lot of manga, but I'm a big fan of Blade of the Immortal, just about anything from Masamune Shirow, Parasyte, Battle Angel Alita, etc.
