Hello and welcome to my blog.  For those who don’t know me I’m Thomas, or Tom, or Tommy, or トーマス, other wise known as Yamagata002.  For now I’m going to be using this blog as a way to ramble on about manga, anime and occasionally post some art.

I’m just some idget out there who likes anime, manga, Japanese culture, British and Canadian comedy shows, video games (PC, Xbox 360, Wii, Playstation 2, my roommates and fellow bloggers’ PS3, N64, Gameboy, DS, PSP etc.), computer animation, drawing, art (minus abstract art), and a bunch of other stuff.  I’m also a serious military otaku, but I’ll try to keep that on the down low, people tend to get creep-ed out when you talk about guns a lot so I avoid it (oh and I also don’t own a single firearm).

You can follow along with what anime I’m watching (if you care anyway) via MyAnimeList profile (still trying to figure out how to set links).  I update it every time I watch something usually within 24 hours.  And for the most part my list is 95% accurate (I fudged some numbers that I couldn’t remember for shows I watched on TV and didn’t add somethings that I watched only one episode of).

The name of this blog should come out as Watermelon Mountains.  Why Watermelon Mountains, well I live in Albuquerque NM and the major landmark here is the Sandia Mountains to the east, and in Spanish it comes out as watermelon.  And about the -san part, in Japanese Mt. Fuji is Fuji-san not Fuji yama (mountain) so I used -san instead (in other words like all my knowledge of Japanese it is a bit iffy).

Oh a important note, I suck at spelling, don’t be surprised to see spelling errors (point it out and die).

One more thing, I’ve set up a gmail account for the blog.  Didn’t feel like using my personal e-mail account here, I get enough spam.  The e-mail is suikasanstudio@gmail.com.
