What the Frak Are You?

Level One: Every time you start a new game, you usually start at level one. Unless you’re playing Pokémon where the starter is Level 5 or getting a new character in a JRPG, who have stats which are based on the stats of your party at the time. Anyway,

Fanboy: 1. “A passionate fan of various elements of geek culture (e.g. sci-fi, comics, Star Wars, video games, anime, hobbits, Magic: the Gathering, etc.), but who lets his passion override social graces.” (
2. “A male who is highly devoted to and biased towards a single subject or hobby within a given field…The term originated in comic book circles, to describe someone who was socially insecure and used comics as a shield from interaction, hence the disparaging connotations. Fanboys are often experts on minor details regarding their hobbies, such as continuity in fictional universes, and they take these details extremely seriously” (

Basically, I’m a beginner when it comes to geek culture. I don’t have the money to invest in it, and I don’t have the time to memorize details to know that a mistake occurred in volume 100 because of a small art detail in volume 62. But that’s not to say I love the atmosphere that geek culture creates. What’s great about being level 1 is that you have the chance to reach level 99. Or level 255. Or 1337 status!

So yes, I have watched a bunch of anime, read a bunch of manga, played a bunch of video games, watched a bunch of movies, laughed at a bunch of parodies on Youtube, and cosplayed once. I’m not socially inept though! I won’t annoy the hell out of you with details of why Batman triumphs Superman. I want to use this Web site to comment and give news on stuff I find interesting. If you can forgive the author’s newb status or if you’re someone like me, then grab your basic dagger and shield and come along for the ride! I will do my best to entertain and educate. Enjoy!
