I've been watching anime for the longest time, but only have seen very few. I speak bunch of languages but fluent in only 2. There are many choices in life I'd like to make to turn life into a roller coaster ride. But I choose to be active and reactive to counter things thrown in life.

Favorite character from Naruto . . .
He likes to train young pupils of the Hidden Leaf.
In certain animes, there's always one perverted guy that likes to drool over females. Seems Jiraiya is one of them. lol
But doesn't always turn out good at the end. ^^
