my name is alex, a 22 year old DJ living in BC. i have studied japanese before for around 2 years (but i never felt like i learned very much)
i've taken about a 1.5 year break from learning due to certain circumstances, so i am a little rusty. i'm going back to school this september and will be taking it there (hopefully).
i'd like to brush up a bit to say the least, so i'm hoping i can learn a thing or two from this site.
btw... i also haven't watched a good anime in a while. can anyone recommend a good comedy/romance series? i remember liking love hina, fruits basket and chobits.
i never liked sifting through all the bad series out there, but i'd like to get into watching a series again, just to familiarize myself with the language if nothing else. for some reason shows like naruto just don't cut it for me. any recommendations?
i think that's it for an intro from me. oh, and if anyone likes happy hardcore on here (a type of dance music), let's talk! if not... well that's even better. :D

Rest in Peace

I love Fruits basket! I was so sad when the anime ended. Last year I just finished reading the manga. The ending was really good but it was a little sad to see it all finally end ; ;. Good luck with your studies at university ^^

Youkoso he JREF!
