      New to the forum, but not new to all this

      Hi all!

      I'm Tenko - I'm an oldie in terms of forums (if those of you can remember the launch of Gaia Online, I was there with you - albeit, probably too young to be on there...but that didn't stop me!)


      I'm trying to get back into watching anime on a fairly regular basis. I had to give it a bit of a break a few years ago due to work commitments, but ho hum!

      I've always been a lover of Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki films (I think my favourite is probably My Neighbours the Yamadas - it never fails to cheer me up!) and I loved CLAMP mangas/animes. I'm also a fan of Hetalia, Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler, Cowboy Bebop and Yuri! On Ice, just to name a few.

      My main hobby at the moment is language learning. I'm bilingual English-French (and that's not due to being Canadian, hahaha!), I speak basic Russian, and I'm just about to start a Japanese course that I'm very excited about! I'm lucky enough to get to travel around a bit, and after getting back from a week in Kobe, Japan, I realised that my teenage dream of becoming fluent in Japanese was still a dream of mine.

      I used to be a massive novella-style RPer - I still RP OC characters with an old friend of mine, but have mainly retired that in exchange for writing fanfic.

      I currently live near to London, England, and will be starting a new job that will have me commuting up there regularly - so, I'm really hoping to be able to attend the next London con!

      Anyway, looking forward to getting to know everyone and chat some more with you!

      Hi @Tenko ! Welcome!

      Kuroshitsuji is one of my favourite animes too! Who is your favourite character? I started learning a little Japanese but haven't done anymore for a while, maybe I should pick it back up too!

      Re: New to the forum, but not new to all this

      Thanks @Teeny !

      Oooh, hard to pick - but, in reality, it has to be Sebastian! Really torn between him and Ciel (cliche, I know, but I can't help myself!), but who can deny a man who has such a passion for cats?
      How about you??

      It's funny, because I couldn't ever really commit to Japanese - all of the writing systems really threw me for a loop and scared me off. But after a week of realising how much more logic there is to it than what appears on the surface, it's absolutely rekindled my interest! If you haven't already tried it, LingoDeer is a good little app

      Thanks for the tip, but I'm already ahead of the game! * fingerguns * Just about to try and chip in at the Halloween Icebreaker...just really thinking about it, hahaha! Who knew that coming up with a spooky question could be this difficult, hahaha!

      @Tenko It's a tough choice between Ciel and Sebastian, but I gotta go Sebastian!
      Oh awesome, I'll check that app out sometime! I used a book series called Japanese from Zero, it makes all the writing systems fairly easy to understand as I was overwhelmed by it too at first ^^

      Hello @Tenko welcome to AL! Studio Ghibli is always a win, I love Yuri too! That's awesome that you're trying to learn new languages. I was the same as you with the Japanese, the writing threw me off a bit, but I'm persevering and I hope it goes well for you! I'd love to hear more about your Kobe visit, you should made a journal

      You did well Jonghyun ❤️
