  1. Name: Matt "Slagpit" Doms
  2. DAS Position/Role: unofficial DAS stormtrooper
  3. Location:New Castle, DE
  4. What are your favorite animes, music, and Asian cinema?
    Anime:You really want me to list all of them? ok... let's see... Lupin III, King of Bandits Jing, L/R Liscenced by Royalty, TransFormers, Big O, Cowboy Bebop, Excel Saga, Trigun, Fullmetal Alchemist, Heat Guy J, InuYasha... probably some others I just can't think of the names of at the moment...

    Music: I know what I like when I hear it... don't know too many actual bands.

    Asian Cinema: well... I'm going to list the anime movies I like here, because I don't really know much else... Steamboy, Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade, Princess Mononoke, Naussica and the Valley of the Wind (although I saw it under the unofficial "Warriors of the Wind" title)
  5. Hobbies outside of anime? I collect TransFormers (primarily the original series stuff) and Boba Fett stuff, as well as play Marvel and DC VS, Heroclix, and Dungeons and Dragons. I also used to... and really want to get back into... writing fanfiction. Yes, I'm a nerd, and I'm proud of it!
  6. What do you like best about the DAS? I think that my fellow DAS members are some of the nicest people I've ever met... I just wish I got to hang out with them more often.
  7. What do you think the future holds for the DAS?first, the conquest of all otakudom in Delaware... then, THE WORLD! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

  8. Do you cosplay? If so, what are your favorite costume(s) Well... once I have the monetary backing to actually pull together a cosplay, I'd like to do one... I'd love to cosplay as the Big O, Daisuke Jigen from Lupin III, or, if I want to stretch into the newer Americanimes (american cartoons trying to look anime... or making fun of anime), MEGAS!
  9. Conventions attended and/or staffed?
    So far, I've only made it to Otakon.
  10. Have you ever named a pet/computer/insert word here after an anime or Asian character? If so, which and why?No... well, I do call my PC "LunarFormer 2" which is both my penname on Fanfiction.net and in and of itself is a combination of 2 of my favorite anime things... the RPG series Lunar, and TransFormers. the 2 was added when I was forced to upgrad the machine.

  11. What theme or institution in anime should be decreased or increased and why? Personally, I'd like to see less angst all together in anime, just because all the romantic angst and whatnot just gets on my nerves.
