Hello everyone! This is Japes!

I've actually been a member here for a while, but I'm pretty inactive in most forums (the only place I've been reasonably active the last year or so has been Christian Gamer's Alliance). I wanted to check out the chat (I'm assuming it's IRC?), but it looks like I haven't posted enough to gain access, so here's an obligatory post!


I guess a bit about myself?

I write for Beneath the Tangles (beneaththetangles.com), which is a blog investigating the intersection between anime and Christian spirituality. I believe the editor and a couple other writers have been active here in the past.

I also cover anime songs on saxophone at my youtube channel youtube.com/japesland. Just hit 2k subscribers a couple weeks ago or so. :)

Besides that, my anime viewing habits can be found here: http://hummingbird.me/users/Japesland

It's Japes! *waves*

Apologies for CAA scaring you. Your post(s) didn't get swallowed up, it was just unapproved (as a security feature, all new users' first few posts go through a filter to make sure they are not spambots or trolls!). So, I went ahead and approved this one since it had your whole intro in it.

I hope you enjoy it here. ^_^

:jump: Hello Japes!
Great intro.
I think I have read your reviews on Beneath the Tangles, when I go there once in a while.
Nice to see you want to be around here more often.
A warm welcome back to CAA. :n_n:

Welcome. Don't worry, the chat opens up soon enough if you join in the conversations :p
And this I pray, that your love would abound still, more and more with real knowledge and all discernment. Be prepared to preach the gospel at a moment's notice. Do you know the gospel well enough to do so yourself? Be ready.

Welcome, welcome. Psh, we're not that scary. We stopped setting newbies loose in the woods to be hunted down with bloodhounds aaaaages ago. Hope you enjoy yourself here, and we'll be waiting to see you in chat.

Hallo and welcome Japes. What do you like about Hummingbird vs. MAL as a cataloging site?

If you got stranded on a deserted island and you happened to have a single anime/manga franchise for entertainment, which one would you want with you?
