Hey guys, my name is Cameron Witt, and I just joined earlier today. I only recently became aware of Alien Nine's existence through a random purchase at my local Hasting's store. I watch a lot of anime, and while I was rummaging through their selection of DVDs I found the Alien Nine episodes and decided to give it a try, after all, I could see that the animation style was very refreshing, and pretty adorable too. After watching the episodes later that night, I knew I had fallen in love with the series!
I'm really excited about ordering the ultimate collection that includes the mangas too. I'll be getting it from Amazon in a couple days. I've heard that there's actually a fourth book that's not included in that, so I'll need to hunt that one down too. Anyhow, I'm so glad that I found out about this show and manga, and I'm very grateful for the awesome site and kind and helpful moderators as well!
As for myself, I believe I already mentioned that I really like a lot of anime (some of my favorites are Alien Nine, Fooly Cooly, Ergo Proxy, Azumanga Daioh, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Neon Genesis Evangelion, etc...), I'm a huge movie buff... actually, I just graduated high school and am trying to find a way to get into film... But anyway, I like computers and pc and video games, and I occasionally read manga.
My hobbies include collecting anime figures and making music videos out of my favorite shows and movies. I already have a song picked out for an Alien Nine video, and I plan to get started on it very soon! I also love to draw and paint, and I'm definately going to contribute something to the fan art gallery here!
I also love listening to music, with my favorite band being The Delgados (Gunslinger Girl, anyone?), and after that (and in no particular order) Gorillaz, Oranger, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Toby Mac, Superchick, Andrew Bird, Teenage Fanclub, Shout Out Louds, Aereogramme, Malcom Middleton, The Goo Goo Dolls, and pretty much anything from Chemikal Underground (that one's not a band, but a record label owned and created by The Delgados).
So um.. yeah! I gues that about does it! I'm glad to be here, and I look forward to contributing to the forums and content of the site! Pleased to meet you!
