Staff Interview - Faraz

-What is your name? Faraz (yes, that's my real name)

-How old are you? 25

- Pirates or Ninjas? I'm afraid I have to go with robots!

- Favorite movie quote? It’s funny, even though I watch tons of movies and TV, I don’t really have a favorite quote.

- Favorite anime quote? Again, this is similar to my movie quote answer; that being said, there are always certain lines that put a smile on my face, like Shana’s “Urusai! Urusai! Urusai!?

- Favorite flavor of chips? Well, at least you didn’t ask “Favorite chip quote?. I guess it would be Ketchup flavored Lays but I rarely have chips alone, and with food (like a sandwich) I prefer original.

- How did you come to find Anime-Source? When I started watching fansubs I was very new to the world of anime so I looked around to find a good anime review website and Anime Source’s massive user review section was exactly what I needed.

-If you could describe yourself in 3 words, what would they be? Intelligent, attractive and humble.

- Outside of Anime, what other hobbies interests you? I do Ju-Jitsu, and trail running and tennis every now and again. Besides that, the usual stuff, TV, movies, books, etc.

- What movies are you looking forward to this coming year? I really liked Batman Begins, so looking forward to Dark Knight. The new M. Night Shyamalan movie also might be interesting. Oh and Tropic Thunder looks hilarious.

-What other websites/forums do you frequent? I often lurk on the Penny Arcade forums and make sure to checkout Zero Punctuation’s weekly game reviews. There’s also a guild that I joined about 5 years ago for SWG; the game turned out to be really bad but we grew close and still hang around and keep the forums going. Oh and how can I forget 4chan’s /d/ forums? Alternative hentai baby!!

-What are some dreams/aspirations you have in life? POWER!!! ABSOLUTE POWER!!!!

-What are your views on 'fansubs' and the whole piracy issue flogging the anime community and industry?
See e&pid=1103

- Your username, Faraz, any particular reason for choosing that as your net alias? Well, it is my name; and I’m way too lazy to sit down and think of something else.

- What are some of your favourite anime/manga of all time? Ghost in the Shell series would definitely be my favorite series of all time. Other than that there’s a lot of stuff out there that I really like. To name a few Death Note, Elfen Lied, Claymore, Zero no Tsukaima, Black Lagoon and probably a lot more that I’ve forgotten.

- What are you currently watching (anime, TV, etc...)? Well, to be honest at the moment I'm watching about 12 different anime and 10 different north american TV shows; so definitely too many to name all. If you check out anime source's spring preview, you can clearly see which shows I'm following. And on the TV front I guess the highlights would be House, BSG, Lost, Damages, Dexter, and Boston Legal.

Also there’s a lot of shows from the previous anime season that are sitting on my hard drive until I get the time to watch them (Clannad, Ghost Hound, Shana II, …).

- How did you end up becoming a Staff Writer for Anime-Source? A couple of months ago Xeno made a post regarding two openings in Anime Source’s staff and I replied to it with a few samples of the reviews I had submitted to the site and was accepted.

- So, what are some of your duties?
To write stuff for the website. Also sometimes Xeno drinks a bit too much and becomes very violent and … well, we don’t really talk about that.

- Is there any info you can reveal at this time about any upcoming events, articles, etc... concerning Anime-Source?
Well, I'm really excited about our Best Opening poll. As for myself I will be doing an indebt review of one of the shows that finished its run recently. I've narrowed my choice down to either Bamboo Blade or Rental Magica. Keep checking our front page in the next week or so for the piece.

- What's one thing you love and hate about Anime-Source?
The best part of the website for me is still the massive library of user submitted reviews. With all the shows out there, such a collection makes the decision making process much easier. What I hate? Well, I’ve yet to see many nude photos of our female members posted on the forums and I find this very disappointing. If our members are too shy they can just send those photos to me directly in a private message or something.

- Before we finish, is that glass over there half-full or half-empty?
I originally was going to say that "The glass is probably completely empty since I drank what was left in it", but I noticed Xeno has made the same joke in his interview, so now I don't have anything witty/original to say.

- Do you have any final messages, comments, etc ...?
Nothing makes us writers happier than seeing high read counts for our articles and lots and lots of comments from readers. So please make sure to read each one of our pieces multiple times and hot-link them on other sites. And for future reference, I personally prefer the “You’re absolutely right! You are now my god!? comments to the “What are you an idiot?? ones. :Wink:
