    For those who don't know me, I am an oldtimer here. I've been a member since 2013 but I took some time off here. I believe I was last active here sometime around early 2015.

    Anyway, if you're interested, this was my original introduction
    Well hello fellow OPFers. I decided to start my 2015 here in OPforum by writing my long overdue Konnichiwa! thread. With new members popping and writing their own intros, I feel like I should also write my own notwithstanding the fact that I've been a member since July of 2013.

    My name is Francis, 25 years old; born, raised, and still living in the Philippines. Basically, I've been an anime fan since I watched TV the first time and that was around 20 years ago when I was 5 years old. My first anime was a mecha series entitled 'Ninja Robots'. I remember during my elementary years, me and my sister would hurry walking home after school in the afternoon so we could finish household chores and watch anime at our grandparents' house. You see, we had no TV then and we would hurry fetching water from a nearby well across the river and fill all containers so we could watch such titles as Yu Yu Hakusho, Flame of Recca, Daimos, Voltes V, Slam Dunk, Hajime No Ippo, among others. Every Sunday we would also look forward every end of Mass because we could watch some awesome Sentai series like Bioman, Maskman, Masked Rider, and Jiban. Yeah, that was my childhood and cherished every minute of it.

    My first encounter with One Piece was in 2004. I was already in high school and we already had a television set. When I get home from school, my first priority would be turning the TV on and watch One Piece.

    I entered college in 2006 and took up Electronics Engineering but on my fourth year, my family was having a hard time supporting two college students (me and my sister). My father is only a minimum wage factory worker and my mother is just a plain housekeeper. I decided to stop my studies and find a job so I could help my sister finish her studies. I got to work in an internet shop owned by one of my friends. There, I worked from 5 pm to 6 am as a timekeeper while working as an outsourced online worker on the side. It was also during this time that I got to catch up with the latest episodes and chapters of One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Shingeki no Kyojin, and Fairy Tail.

    Now, my sister is already a licensed Radiologic Technologist working at a large hospital. Last year, I decided to resume my schooling and I am currently a 4th year engineering student still stuck at college and still an otaku

    I guess that's all I got to say. It's tl;dr I know but I hope it was worth your time.

    I have achieved lots of things during my two year timeskip,.actually. And I am glad to be back and catch up with my old pals and get acquainted with the new bloods here.

    And to celebrate my comeback, let's all get intoxicated by this bottle of soju.

    Edit: Did my link work? Cant seem to see the image of the soju on my phone.

    But welcome back to OPF! :) I am under the impression that you'll be able to contribute alot to the discussions and other things here, for some reason.

    Otaku starter pack for Filipino kids :grin:

    Do not underestimate the value of all the things housekeepers do ;) they'd be rich if all of their work is converted to cash xD

    I was able to see the image when I opened it in a new tab. You must've copied the wrong link for that picture. Anyhow, welcome back!

    Not underestimating her at all. She's the best nagger in the whole universe. And I like her that way.

    Well, that just proves how an idiot I am lol.

    Thank you star.

    Yeah. Thank you. By the way, I like your username. So Stephen Hawking-esque.

    Third world problems man. Didn't have cable when I was a child. Heck, we didn't have TV. But thank you. I feel just as new as you actually. Forum is way different from the one 3 years ago. Props to Owl for overseeing this community nicely.

    Welcome back, Anjo. The link does not work for me either, but that's alright.
    I can't say we share much in terms of anime, but any fan of Kamen Rider is a friend of mine.

    Welcome back! Shochu is a perfect alcohol to mix up a great cocktail (probably the alcohol I experiment with the most).
