I like Super Link...

Good luck in your studies. Any plans to visit Japan?

If your parents are native Chinese, you have my sympathies XD

I don't know, I think Akihabara was cooler before the otaku boom. Darn you Densha Otoko!

Mind if I ask how you got into Transformers?

Hey, never been to Akihabara!

After school/Saturday G1 reruns and cousin's original G1 Grimlock figure at said cousin's home as a kid (well, mom's uncle's place for a BIG Thanksgiving) - couldn't figure out how to transform Grimlock. After that, it's been on/off over the years - some minor interest in 2005-6 - until the 2007 movie really kicked it back into gear. I don't really care for the figures much - I do have three and seven non-transforming TFs - but it's the books that I usually go for.

Real name: Sean
Gender: Male
Job: QC, distro, timing
About me: Not really much to say. I work in a library part time, it sucks ass. I collect whatever henshin devices I can afford, which lately hasn't been any. I own the Adult Ryuki belt so you guys call all bow to my awesomeness. :) Ryuki's my favorite series, followed closely by Blade. I'm mostly a KR fan but I like Sentai too, even though it usually takes me a bit to get into a series. I think Magiranger is the only series that I didn't take a break from and then go back to and force myself to watch to get into.

Job: Timing, QC

About Me: I'm just a geek. I read comic books, watch movies. I enjoy long walks on the beach...j/k... I first came here looking for Super Sentai fansubs, started with Dekaranger. Decided to watch Kamen Rider one day, and have been a hardcore fan ever since, I'm also a huge Ultraman fan. I also loathe Americanized Tokusatsu. That's pretty much it.

Name: Arigomi
Real Name: Richmond (English) or Lân (Vietnamese)
Gender: Man-Child
Job: QC (though i'm still new at doing this)

About Me: I stumbled across the first few episodes of Magiranger during the summer of 2005 as other things grabbed my interest. I did return every now and ended up finishing TF Superlink and watching half of TF Galaxy Force. It was only last year that I truly become interested in tokusatsu again. Starting last year, I watched the following completed projects in no particular order:

Gransazer, Justirisers, Sazer X, Garo, Akihabara@Deep, Densha Otoko, Faiz, Blade, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O, Ryukendo, Shibuya 15, Dekaranger, Magiranger, Boukenger, Gekiranger

As for my personality, one of my college friends once compared me to Spongebob Squarepants. Besides anime and videogames, my hobbies include anything that requires working with your hands like origami, drawing, and cooking. I have what audiophiles call horrible taste in music and I don't watch movies very often. I'm only mildly interested in comic books.

My Indian-American friend (as in the Asian subcontinent) commented on how I am so different from most Vietnamese-Americans. He should know since he is from San Jose, a city with a huge Vietnamese-American community. I'm not surprised by his comment since beyond my personality quirks, I don't even have typical Southeast Asian facial features. Even though both of my parents are from Vietnam, my father's side of the family has a little Chinese ancestry. This also explains why I have a last name that sounds Chinese.

Current Pet Peeve: People making thinly-veiled references to how they didn't like Go-Ongers. We know already, can't we just move on?

Heh. I guess it's just part of the fandom to both love and vehemently criticize things, no matter how pointless, grating, or repetitive it becomes

It's funny that you live in San Jose. I had a friend who went their for college, and I'm currently taking some online classes there

Name: zeta_gundam (I go by this, MSZ006Zeta, or just zeta)
Real name: Matthew (some call me Matt, my friends call me Vampire cause I always look pale and tired.)
Gender: Male
Job: QC
Location: Singapore (I'm wondering how many other Singaporeans are there here, I see lonelyranger.)

About Me: I'm a photographer who is currently studying. I hate to use the word 'student', and I usually introduce myself as a photographer. I hate school a lot, since when I was 7. I'm currently studying in Junior College, Year 2 (I'm 18 this year), and after this I'll have to go through the compulsory bull**** called National Service (NS). NS is an obligatory 'service', whereby all male Singaporeans who are 18 need to go through training and serve the army for two years. (You can wiki it for more info.) Many call it a waste of life/time. After NS, I hope to study photography in either Singapore or Australia.

In my free time (which I rarely have lately), I either read up more about photography, or build my Gunpla. I do collect some Kamen Rider figures that interest me as well.

What got me into T-N: My finding of T-N was the result of searching for Kamen Rider Kabuto videos. I lurked around, and finally joined the forums last year. What got me into QC was Take's front page post requesting for QC'ers, and I was glad to help out. I started with Keitai, and then I moved on to QC Decade as well this year. Hopefully I still can QC next year while I serve NS.

^ The thing that bothers me the most about NS is that in some countries, women are exempt.

I should clarify. My friend is from San Jose but I live in San Diego. We both attended UC Davis and became friends through the anime club. It's actually quite a funny story that I will save for some other time.

In Singapore women are exempt. But they could sign on to serve the army as a job as well.
