Hello, and welcome to Yamcha's Anime universe! Some of you may know me from visiting my Myotaku page (username: Yamchaa), but if you havent visited or dont know me, then thats cool too lol. Im a big anime fan and ive been one for as long as i can remember. I collect anime movies, magazines, figures, all things related to anime, and im proud to say that i have a pretty hefty and diverse anime collecion which is usually constantly growing, and with this new world i hope to make new friends and spread my knowledge of anime to whoever may need it ^_^
Geez, it's been a good long while since ive posted here, and i'm kinda ashamed that ive been neglecting things so much when it comes to posting here and on my other worlds, thats for sure.
Ive basically pretty much been up to the usual stuff -
Ive been keeping my myanimelist.net profile updated as i buy new anime, and i have also recently been forming my videogame collection list over at Gamefaqs.com - so if you are a member at gamefaqs, you should be able to look up my username (Yamchaa) and see what games ive added (so far) lol.
Since the launch of the site www.thegeekfighters.com ive been a member there and ive been contributing a little here and there. I havent done much, but thats where ive spent alot of my time, roaming the forums and occasionally writing up a blog/review of games, anime etc. whenever i have all the info i need lol. It's been a fun time and its a great site for people of all interests, thats for sure - so be sure to check it out, there are some high profile members from TheO that contribute over there and their work is certainly worth checking out :)
The main reason i wanted to post today, is that Japan wrote up a small profile about me - such as her first memory of me, what color i remind her of, and stuff like that. One of the things she always wondered about me, was:
"How many anime dvds do i have?"
Well, after a while of counting everything up this morning, here is the answer :)
187 anime VHS tapes
483 anime dvds
(I didnt add the duplicate stuff i own, to make it a fair number lol)
Well, it was really fun to post today, and im going to really try to post more, thats for sure. I thank you all for visiting and i sure hope to chat with you all soon :)
I was sitting here watching some anime and i got some ideas and took some pics, so i thought i'd post up the pics and i also thought id let you all know what ive been up to this past week/weekend.
This past week has been pretty crazy and hectic for me, I wont go into detail about all the personal stuff that's been goin on, because im the type of person that keeps stuff like that really personal, so i hope no one is offended or anything like that.
Because of the personal stuff, Ive been a bit out of sorts for the past week. This weekend i spent 90% of my time watching movies, watching anime, playing videogames and sleeping. When i got home from work saturday morning, i pulled the blankets off of my bed and laid them out on the floor in my room in front of my TV and watched my dvd of the movie Blade Runner:The Final Cut. When i finished that movie, i watched my other dvd of Blade Runner: The Directors Cut. The Final cut has been totally remastered visually and the sound is awesome too. It also is slightly different than the Directors cut, and has added parts, and some parts taken out. There is like 5 different versions of Blade Runner, and i hope to eventually find the versions i dont have lol.
After i watched Blade Runner, i ended up falling asleep and i woke up sometime Saturday night around 11pm. At that time i beat Marvel Vs. Capcom 2again, and unlocked some more characters, and i also played Halo for an extended amount of time. After i got tired of playing Halo, I watched my dvd of the anime called DevilMan, and i must say that i really enjoyed it this time around. it's pretty violent and has alot of language, but it was just fun to watch because it pulled no punches at all lol. After i finished watching DevilMan, i re-watched the last dvd of Gatekeepers 21, because i had fallen asleep during the last 3 episodes, and i wanted to get a better understanding of it. To be honest, the last 3 episodes really made the show for me, and i really enjoyed it. Watching Gatekeepers 21, urged me to re-watch my dvd of the original Gatekeepers, which i enjoyed even more because it wasnt as dreary and dark as Gatekeepers 21. Just for the record, Gatekeepers is a prequel to Gatekeepers 21, just in case anyone is wondering lol.
By then it was around 7:30am Sunday morning and i decided to lay back down and watch the Mobile Fighter G-Gundam dvds i own. Here is a pic of the G-Gundam dvds i own, along with the 2 tapes of recorded episodes i have :)
My Mobile Fighter G-Gundam video Collection.
The 2 VHS cases contain the 2 tapes worth of episodes from G-Gundam that were recorded from Cartoon Network. The G-Gundam logos on the VHS cases were made by me using the backs of the cardboard cases from som action figures i had bought years ago :)
I blame Shinmaru for getting me back into G-Gundam because i heard him chatting about it in Theotaku Chats a few days ago lol. To be honest, ive had these dvds for years and ive never watched them. I have all of the G-Gundam episodes recorded from Cartoon Network and that is how i had watched them, but that was quite a few years ago lol. Watching them on dvd lately has given the series new life to me and i have really been enjoying it, especially the opening and ending themes, as well as the music from the series in general.
Im actually watching volume 7 of G-Gundam right now lol, just 5 more dvds to go.
Around 7:50am Sunday morning the power went out for some strange reason, so i just went to sleep for a couple of hours lol. When i woke up, i played Halo for a while longer and then proceeded to watch the movie HardBoiled, which is one of the greatest action movies ever. It's a pretty long movie too lol. Once i finished the movie, i pulled out all of my fighting games and played them so i could get a good feel of how i would write my article for Thegeekfighters.com
Final Round of Arcade Mode on Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO (Im Ken lol)
I had a fun time with it and i certainly hope to put up another article on the site sometime soon :)
When i finished posting, i pretty much laid down and started watching more episodes of G-Gundam until i fell asleep. Today ive mostly just been watching G-Gundam as well, and doing laundry and stuff for work tonight, and ill probably just watch G-Gundam until i go to sleep later today lol.
Well that pretty much covers my weekend, i covered alot of dvds thats for sure lol. I'm just trying to stay busy with anime and stuff so my mind doesnt think too much about stuff, stress can be a pain thats for sure.
Well i hope you guys enjoy the post and i sure hope to chat with you all soon :)
If you play me in any Street fighter related game, I will play as Ken.
If you knock me down, i will come up with the Shoryuken.
If you try to jump over me, i will use the Shoryuken.
If you try to jump straight up and lure me into an attack, i will roll -
and then use the Shoryuken.
I will use the Hadouken to bait you into the Shoryuken.
I will corner you with the Shoryuken.
I will bait you into cornering me, and then use the Shoryuken on you.
I will use the Hadouken immediately after throwing you in order to force you into blocking or getting hit immediately when you recover.
I will adapt to your fighting style, and i would expect you to do the same.
After all - if you are a "Hardcore Fighting" gamer, wouldnt you be able to handle it?
Sorry to rant, just thought i'd throw that out there for future reference :)
I was hoping to post last night sometime, but i ended up falling asleep while i was waiting for some pics to upload, so i figured id just post today lol.
I havent been up to much lately, mostly been playing videogames and watching anime for the most part. Since my car is in the shop, i havent really been able to go anywhere and buy new games or stuff like that - so ive been going back and playing games that i own and havent played much of. The same way with my anime dvds.
The past month ive watched -
Ninja Scroll Series Box set
Princess Nine volumes 4 and 5
Steel Angel Kurumi volumes 2 and 3
Gatekeepers 21 Series
I never thought i'd watch a few of those dvds, thats for sure - especially since they tend to be mostly for women lol. i had fun thought and i really enjoyed the Ninja Scroll series, especially the music. i hope to make some wallpapers for it really soon :)
Lately ive also been playing games quite a bit, trying to unlock stuff and gain acheivements for my xbox360.
Yesterday i uploaded another video of me and some co-workers playing UFC Udisputed 2009. Here is the video i uploaded yesterday :)
Im the guy in the red tights and the other guy is Kenny from work lol.
Here is another video i uploaded a few days agoand posted on my videogame world, i thought id post it up here in case anyone missed it :)
Well, i think im going to try to upload more videos and play some more games. I'm probably going to watch my dvd of the anime DevilMan too lol.
I hope to post more stuff up and chat with you all soon :)
