We are a group of like minded individuals here to share our hobbies and passions with the rest of the community. Hoping to strengthen and bring about a more active anime scene in the Midwest area.
Hugo – Fantasy was always something that really sparked my imagination and what better way to make that fantasy come alive than through video games. Anime was introduced to me at a young age, not knowing what DBZ was at the time. Hobbies of mine include RPGs, FPS, Driving, RTS,video games, CCGs, Euro-Board games. What I look for in a good anime; good writing, music filled with emotion, obscure topics, unexpected twists, art style in my opinion is secondary.
Chris – Tumblr Moderator – I started watching anime when I was a child. I remember watching Sailor Moon with my older sister and two of our friends in a small TV and thinking it was the coolest “cartoon” we have ever seen (We were children… We didn’t know it was called anime). Around the same time I had a fascination with video games. I would love to sit and watch my older brother play video games on the Sega Genesis and wishing that I could be half as good as he was. Now, some of my all time favorite video games to date would be Left 4 Dead 1-2, Portal 1-2, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Mario Kart, DDR/Stepmania, and Streets of Rage 2. I am fairly open-minded about anime but my preference/expertise is yaoi.
Anthony – Con. Advisor – I’ve always been a nerd. I remember the very first game I played ever at the age of four (Phantasy Star II on Sega Genesis). I remember growing up watching Sailor Moon every morning at 6:30 AM and then graduating onto Saturday Anime on the Sci-Fi Channel. After that, it was the legendary Toonami block that gave us such great gems like DBZ, Outlaw Star, and Gundam Wing, just to name a few.
You’d think that being into anime, Video Games (especially music games, JRPGs, and fighting games), and general nerdy stuff would draw me to cosplaying, but sadly I never got to realize this until 2010 when I cosplayed at ACEN. Since then I’ve been cosplaying characters like Crono (Chrono Trigger), Hiro (Lunar 2), Locke Cole (Final Fantasy VI) and Zelgadis (The Slayers) just to name a few. I enjoy going to cons and getting to know people as well as helping out in any way that I can. I guess that’s what brought me here, a desire to give back to the community. Hopefully the things that I bring to this website will be a benefit to the rest of the writers as well as to you the readers. Can’t wait to see where this ride takes me.
