I never thought the day would come when I would be asked to write for the Anipike! One of my number one places to visit when I want to get the scoup on new anime is the Anipike and I always get drawn up into all of the extras such as the guest pick articles! Well, I guess now you're wondering why I'm even here right now!
(Anibot-note: As most of our guestwriters, Neptune-Star was proposed via email by another anime fan who described her as "... the best person I know on the internet". It is no empty praise for her proposer is one of the more popular anime website owners. :)
Well, I should tell you a little about myself... My name is "Neptune-Star" but many call me Vicki. (shhh... it's a secret! Wouldn't want people to catch on to... ah... never mind hehehe ^_^;) I'm another Anime fan from Ontario, Canada who loves to learn all they can about anime! Then one day, I decided to learn HTML... watch out world! Here I come! Well, I wasn't a natural at it... but for those who have seen my first pages will know how big of a leap I have taken in design so far on my webpages.
Right now, most know me from my Anime Adoption Agency I run. It hasn't even been a year but it's slowly coming around! I came up with the concept of people adopting anime pets for their webpages one late stormy night in August last year, when I had nothing to do! I had just gotten a brand new computer and I thought "Hey! Why not?" So I did and I am glad I did ^_^ I have much fun with it and I'm sure people love the concept as well! Don't get me wrong though... I know I didn't create the idea first... I soon came to realize that there were many different types of adoption pages! (Anibot-note: Visit the if you're curious about it! :)
For those who would like to know, I am majoring in Music right now going into my last year of high school (yay!). I play the flute, piano and violin. I love classical music the best! Ever listen to Vanessa-Mae? No?? You should! Right now! Yeah! I want you to go to a music store right now and get her albums! Just kidding but really, you should listen to her! She's a great violinist and she does great techno-acoustic music on the violin as well as classical! ^_^ I also like to draw, paint and sketch, (anime of course but I also do some real life work as well...) But lets get on to Anime!!! Yeah!
I still have a chuckle sometimes when I think back to when my anime craze began. I remember sitting down to watch some television with some children I was babysitting a few years back when this commercial came up on YTV advertising a new action doll for girls: Sailor Moon. I started laughing at the mere concept! Well, within two months, I was watching the show. Then I started to do some research and found out about the original story. I was hooked!
Now, I own over 40 original episodes, almost 50 posters, 700 cards, 3 playing card decks, and 4 of those dolls I couldn't stop laughing at when I first laid eyes on them. Of course, it's not all Sailor Moon anymore ^_^ I became entranced with other anime series and movies. Such as Ranma 1/2, Fushigi Yuugi, Pocket Monsters (a.k.a. PokÈmon), and so many more, it would take all night to list! Besides, I have to get going on this! So now, I'll state some of my favourite anime sites to go to ^_^ Enjoy! (please pardon the Canadian spelling of some things ^_^)
