Talk about anything not related to the festival here (e.g. introduce yourself, chat about anime, manga, video games and other Japanese cultural things).

Hi everyone I'm SpaceWhale (Ben), I'm 25 and have been studying in Manchester for the past 7 years. I've been an avid video gamer since you could get your hands on the Sega Mega Drive 2. After video gaming my favourite hobby is creative writing (or attempted creative writing) and in the future I hope to also sharpen up my drawing skills. I'm currently following Vampire Knight and Freezing after watching their anime versions and I've been following the webcomic Sluggy Freelance for about 5 years.

This is my first festival and I'm looking forward to it.

See you all there!

Introduce yourself? Hmm... I don't know what to say...
Well, I'm kind of new to these things; only just got into anime when I started high shcool which was about 3 or 4 years ago... Not too sure :oops:
I don't really have any favourites, the novelty fades fast... I'm kind of hoping I can pick something new up whilst there.
I certainly aren't much of a gamer, I've never really been able to get into games.

Hey there, I'm Dean, 21, from Liverpool, big fan of Japanese horror and general film, I'll get the cliche line in here about loving Takashi Miike (Ichi The Killer is tied first in my favourite foreign film with French film Switchblade Romance/High Tension) etc etc. Don't want to ramble too much about just loving films though, huge fan of what Japan has given the Western World in regards to video games. Right now playing the Project Zero game series (currently on 3) through with a bunch of friends and it's scaring me to near-death every evening we have it on, and adore Silent Hill/Resi etc. Final Fantasy VII is my favourite game ever.

Outside of Japanese culture stuff I'm a musician, guitar/bass being key, and love Manic Street Preachers/Mansun/TheWildhearts/Faith No More/Akira Yamaoka etc.

Tend to think of myself as pretty friendly and open about most things, and look forward to the festival where I'll spend money I don't have on even more DVDs!

Hi guys
Names Lisa, but mostly known as Baggy.

Been going to conventions for nearly 4 years now and to have one in the North-West is awesome (i'm from Lytham St Annes orginally)
I'm an avid cosplayer and anime/manga enthusiast.
I'm a freelance comic illustrator, currently working on my own comic projects and selling at expos/conventions. Also working as a concept artist and sprite animator for 4th Wall Games.

Really looking forward to Doki Doki and meeting new peeps. Just stuck as to what to cosplay lol :P
