About Josh Totmanone of us since 10:24 PM on 10.24.2007

Josh is a simple man. Normally either in the kitchen cooking up a tasty meal or watching the latest anime that not too many people like. Being more of the old timer of the group. He has now been watching, collecting, and consuming anime since 1994. He now resides in Washington state, since moving from the cold tundra of Alaska. Where, at one point, started an anime convention up there that ran for three years before shutting down. Before that, he also had an online anime store that he tried starting up on eBay. Other then that, he tries to do whatever he can to help the anime industry by trying to relearn the written English language for reviews and articles. English is his second language, he is still trying to find his first.
