Nice to meet you and welcome :)
In the Spam section (Kawaii Neko hearts etc. etc.), there's an introduction thread for all of the newcomers to get to know a little bit about everyone ^^
It's a sticky, so it's near the top. That's probably the best place to start on here~*

If you are trying to make friends I would say you are doing everything right. You are posting in a wide range of topics, going to meet-ups and getting your name out there. I hope to see you at a few meet-ups ^_^

Good Grief! And others thought they were clueless about this particular thread.

My name's Jay, 45 years old. Got into anime as something to watch besides regular TV. I worked nights, and I joined Netflix, and had been seeing some episodes of Dragonball Z on TV, but I had to miss too many, so I looked to see if Netflix had any episodes, sure enough! My ex-wife hated it though. I guess I had to otaku myself about it, and started surfing the web to find more about anime. Which lead to here.

I missed the first K-con in Springfield, because I slept in. I was still working graveyard back then.
Have Fun

In the future, if you want to respond to (and quote) a bunch of posts, use the "Insert Quote" button on the right end of each post (in the Reply page) rather than posting a bunch of time consecutively.  If you're using quick reply, just hit Preview.

I've already been converted to anime fandom, so you won't be seeing me there.
If you bring your friends, does that make them converted? Maybe you should do that?

Hiii!

I'm Charles! I got into anime/manga through some of my middle school friends back in the ancient days and Toonami.

This will mark my second year at K-con. Last year was my first ever sci-fi/anime convention! I felt like I a prodigal son coming home to a family he had never had before.

I like anime/manga, video games, violin, electric guitar, judo, entomology, geology, science fiction in general, beach shorelines,

I live near PSU, though I'm not taking classes at the moment---haven't decided on a major, bad economy makes applying out-of-pocket difficult, and I can only get financial aid if I apply for full-time enrollment. And with all of the above in effect plus the difficulty of getting a job if I quit my new one, I think I gotta sit and think for now...

Now then. Favorite anime!:

-Nanoha season 2 (First one wasn't too hot until the last 5 episodes or so not to mentioned nearly fatally bogged with things that make you worry about the studio's sexual preferences, third one may or may not be too militaresque for my tastes.)
-Full Metal Panic! (Mixed feelings, though, for multiple reasons.)
-Cowboy Bebop (Alllways a classic!)

Manga!:
-Genshiken (It makes me cry and laugh at the same time. Laugh for obvious reasons, cry because it's so accurate...)
-Planetes
-Vinland Saga (It's a MANGA ABOUT VIKINGS. BY THE GUY WHO MADE PLANETES. :o And it's even HISTORICALLY ACCURATE. How can this NOT be awesome?)

Favorite video games:
-Cave Story (Best freeware game ever! I might dress up as Quote this year!)
-Iji (Another freeware game and a close contender for the title of best freeware game)
-Bungie's Marathon Trilogy (Intense, confusing, often trippy, and now totally free to download!)
-Resident Evil RE-Make, Resident Evil 3
-Tales of Symphonia (The sequel just looks...Borderline painful, though.)
-Timesplitters 2 and 3
-Painkiller
-Serious Sam

There's probably others, but those are most on my mind at the moment.

Not quite as enthused by anime geekdom as I used to (Can I live without constant shitstorms about Lucky Star and/or Haruhi and/or whatever? Yes I can!), but after attending my first K-con last year my geek blood feels alive again. Maybe I should just pay less attention to the internet.

Pleased to meetcha! ;D

My name is Czarcasm(real name Michael).  I have been a fan of anime since the early 60's, but have yet to go to an anime convention.  I have gone to many science fiction and gaming conventions, though.  What I usually do is run Hospitality suites(including at the most recent GameStorm), and have co-chaired Orycon.
