Although it isn't morning in the UK, I'd just thought I'd differentiate myself from the other topic titles. xD. I've had this account for a while, but I'm only jyst starting to post so thought I'd do an introduction here.
So, hi, my real name is James though my internet username is either dude3991 or jpt1993. I'm 17 and my birthday is July 11th, 1993. I live in the UK, near Birmingham.
For my tastes in anime, I'll watch anything. I usually watch everything that comes out in a season except for sequels to stuff I haven't seen and I try my hardest not to drop anything. My top 5 anime are One Piece, Hajime no Ippo, SDF Macross, Hunter X Hunter and GaoGaiGar Final. Also Gun/Diebuster is a close 6th, I just felt the need to mention that because it's so awesome!
Manga is pretty much the same, though I've hardly read much. My top 5 series are One Piece, Bakuman, Mahou Sensei Negima!, Liar Game and Mirai Nikki. I've started collecting manga this year and already own 30+ volumes! One of my personal goals is to collect as much of One Piece as possible, which is a bit of a mission sincce I own 2 out of the 50 volumes that are out!

For video games, once again I'll try anything as long as it's good. I think I'm pretty good gamer, being generally good at most games although I fail hard at 2D fighters. I'm trying to train myself at BlazBlue but it's so hard. My favourite games must be the Shin Megami Tensei series. After playing RPGs like Final Fantasy for years, they were like of fresh air. I particulary love Persona 4 and I'm also quite fond of Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga.
Since this is Arlong Park, I'll do a little mini section about my love for One Piece! I caught up with anime this year, I spent maybe month watching the anime up to 450 (I think) in February. I instantly fell in love and it literally consumed my life! xD. I think I chose the perfect time to catch up as Impel Down had just finished in the anime and Marineford had just finished in the manga. After I caught up on the anime, I marathoned Marineford in a day. My favourite characters are Franky, Ace, Bon-Chan and Brook. They are all the eccentric types, well except for Ace really, which other series seem to lack.
So, I hope I get to know some of you and I look forward to being a full-fledged member of the AP community.
