Who am I, you might ask? Well, let's see here...
To be honest, I'm a pretty uneventful person. If you were to see me in real life, you'll most likely describe me as a quiet, calm, and laid-back person of Chinese heritage who was born in Indonesia and is currently living in Australia. Or at least, that's what I hope my impression is like.
Going a bit further into who I am, my main interest lies in computer and creativity, so that's why I'm currently enrolled for computer science at my university. I already have quite a bit of experience with programming. As for my side hobby, I do a little bit of graphic designing whenever I feel like it, usually through tinkering with Photoshop. So voila! Now I'm a slightly more interesting person! :D
Hanging around this community ever since the 28th May 2018!
I joined AniList during the Great MALfugee Crisis of 2018 and what can I say? I'm glad I found this site. I've met a lot of awesome people since then and is definitely still keen to meet new ones! So, if you want to talk with me or just stalk me out harmlessly, feel free to do so! ^^
Around here, I'm basically a:
REVIEWER - On indeterminate hiatus
What started off as a means to improve my English writing skills has turned into a mini hobby of mine. Nowadays, I don't get too technical with my reviews and simply just try to share my mostly positive thoughts into words that I hope others can enjoy reading.
Total Words Written (out of 38 reviews) - 25,696
While I do discuss different topics here, my main activity has to come from my animanga status posts. I occasionally add some short (sometimes long) thoughts every time I finish a couple of episodes and chapters so that's where you can find the more talkative me.
It's fun to see what everyone is up to and give out tons of likes! I also use the like system as a way to notify that I've read your replies if you're wondering why I don't reply back in our conversation.
If you want to see me in a digital graphics world, I change up my profile every once in a while to keep things fresh and new. I use Photoshop and Illustrator as my main software. Designing something I'm satisfied with is actually quite challenging, but I'll keep on trying!
Life can be too stressful at times, so I like to add a silly triangular smile on my post whenever I can. I mean, why not? It's fun! And it gives me a bit of a cheery feeling that I hope others can feel too. :>

So, anime and manga. It should be obvious that these two things have pretty much consumed my life, considering they're my main source of entertainment right now.
Looking back, I started watching anime (without knowing what it is) back when I was still quite young, maybe 6 or 7 years old, with the good ol' Naruto. Then I stopped for whatever reason, only to rediscover that same show again sometime during 2016 and that's when my current enjoyment for animanga truly began.
Fast forward to today and well, you can see that the amount of anime and manga I've seen is growing and will keep on growing for a very long time to come. If nothing bad happens, I think this enjoyment of mine will last a lifetime. Every series out there will be different. I'll find some gems, I'll find some mediocre ones. And I will try to experience as much of them as possible, simply because they've become an enjoyment of mine. ^^
Looks like I'll be tapping away for the rest of my life!
Just when I thought I've gotten away from the hell called osu!, Bandori and Love Live! sucked me in again. I guess card-collecting and hitting notes are my true callings in life...
Self-deprecation aside, I've always liked the idea of rhythm games. So, when I stumbled upon Japanese mobile rhythm games, it's like they've unlocked the addictive side within me when I know I can challenge myself towards perfection, listen to songs, and get all the beautiful cards by playing them. And now I have three installed in my phone. You can send a friend request if you want to, I'm a daily F2P player in all games! :>
