Staff Interview - Molenir

Please introduce yourself

Real names Nate.

Giant Robots vs. Super Saiyans...

Er, Saiyans? I ain't gotta clue what those are, so I'm gonna have to go with Robots.

How old are you?

Old, I'm probably one of the older people on staff here at Anime-Source.

Pirates or Ninjas?

Not sure, there's definitely some draw to sailing around free, plunderin, makin off wit da wimin. But then I think I'm not really that kinda guy, plus Ninjas are just cool. Not lame Naruto Ninjas no, but cool Ninjas. Ya know the type I'm talkin' about.

Sunny Delight

Where do you live?

Phoenix, Arizona

Favorite Colour?

Green... More light green actually. Grass Green I guess. How the hell do people tell the difference in colors anyway.

Favorite beverage?

It used to be Dr Pepper mixed with just a little Pepsi, but since lately I'm not allowed to drink soda, and especially not colas, I'm going to have to go with Sunny Delight.

Favorite flavor of chips?

Can't say I really have a favorite.

What is the most geekiest thing about you?

I watch anime, and read manga

What is the most geekiest thing that you own?

Probably my 200 plus volumes of assorted Manga...?

If you could describe your personality in 3 words, what would they be?

Calm, Motivating, Decisive.

How did you come to find Anime-Source

I actually don't remember, has been too long. Either I was looking to download an anime, and found the torrents, or I was looking to read some manga and found them there.

Outside of Anime, what other hobbies interests you?

Well, manga. I've worked as an Editor scanlating various mangas. And have worked for several different scanlation groups. Currently working as a cleaner, and I guess project leader for A Willful Muse. One of the hottest scan groups going right now.

What movies are you looking forward to this coming year?

Movies aren't something I really look forward to anymore. I mostly just rent online from Blockbuster, or ahem, download and watch them... Er, wait that would be illegal, I actually don't do that. No I do, er something else. Oh, yeah go to the Theater. Yeah. Hehe...

What other websites/forums do you frequent?

Anime-Suki, Evil Empire Baka-Updates, Tokyo Toshkon, and various assorted webcomics like Schlock Mercenary. I haven't really had time lately to go online and chat much though. Mostly when I have time, I just hit news sites, and Anime-Source.

What are some dreams/aspirations you have in life?

Well, I'd eventually like to finish college. I quit after getting my associates and have yet to get around to going back.

What's one odd-observance about yourself?

I have a deformed ear. Seriously, not like really deformed, its just one ear is different then the other. Its kinda cool actually. My last girlfriend loved to play with my ears.

Your username, Molenir, any particular reason for choosing that as your net alias?

Molenir is the hammer of Thor. I thought it was cool and being young, decided to go by that name. Yes, yes alright I know it it should actually be Mjollnir, but I originally picked it to play an Online RPG called Dragonrealms, and wouldn't ya know it, someone else had already picked Mjollnir, so I was stuck with Molenir. Somehow it stayed with me, and since its such a unique name, amazingly enough, I've never had any problem registering for forums, chatrooms, or services. Hehe one perk of my weird ass name. Oddly enough, the entire time I played Dragonrealms, I never did run into Mjollnir.

Never Give Up

What are some of your favourite anime/manga of all time?

Hmm, Anime I'd say,
    Haibane Renmei
    Bamboo Blade
    Lucky Star
    Ghost Hunt
    Ghost in the Shell 1st + 2nd Gig
Manga, just randomly looking at my collection, I'd say...
    Never Give Up
    Skip Beat
    Kimi wa Pet
    Special A
    Crimson Hero
    Chibi Vampire, Koukou Debut

Reki from Haibane Renmei

Favorite anime quote?

I'm bad with anime quotes. Now if you widen the scope to include say the Simpsons... I'd go with Homer saying, "But I don't even believe in Jebus." followed by "Save me Jebus, Save me!" That cracks me up every time I hear it. Ooh, from Lucky Star... "My email address is in Roman Letters iluvgirlswithglasses. I wanted to go with maids or something, but maids and shrine maidens are popular and easily..." Heh, I spilled water out my nose when I first heard that one.

Favorite Movie/TV quote?

From V for Vendetta - "Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. Pauses to carve V into poster on the wall The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

How did you end up joining the Anime-Source staff?

After discovering A-S, I sortof got into the habit of writing and submitting reviews for the animes I watched. About 8 months and 50 plus reviews later, Himitsu who is the ASRT team leader asked if I'd be interested in helping out with the reviews section. Since I enjoy writing reviews, I thought why not. At the very least, I know what I consider to be a good review. Anyway, I found out later that apparently Leo had recommended me as a possible new member of the team, based on some of the reviews I'd written. I was flattered, and happy to accept.

V for Vendetta

So, what are some of your duties?

Pretty much doing whatever needs to be done. Though mostly I take care of waiting reviews, and generally help out with the STUDD database by uploading screenshots and character shots.

Is there any info you can reveal at this time about any upcoming events, contests, etc... concerning Anime-Source?

Thats not really my area to talk about. Though we're always looking to do new polls for fun. I help out occasionally with things like that, though its been a bit frustrating for me. It seems like everytime we're having a poll, I end up getting swamped with work, and unable to help out.

What's one thing you love and hate about Anime-Source?

Love and hate... Hmm, well I love the reviews section. Whenever I want to find out about a show, I can come here and read what everyone else thinks about it. Its got a great database with tons of reviews. On the other hand, I'd like to see more.

Where do you see Anime-Source headed for the future?

Not really sure. We're not nearly as big as some of the other anime websites, but I think we definitely have our own niche.

Best Work or Proudest Accomplishment on this Site

Probably some of the ideas that have been implemented. Like the top reviewers list, and the power reviewer Icon. (I didn't do any of the work just made the suggestion.) Thanks again Frundock! That and I've done a lot of screenshots and synopsis for the site. Pretty pleased with that as well.

Koi Koi Seven STUDD data

What are your dreams about?

I'm a guy, what do you think? All my dreams are about sex!

What does your room look like?

Messy, not messy as in can't walk without stepping on something messy. But piles of mess, areas of floor.

Have you ever met any other A-S users?

No, er, wait my brother is an A-S user, so yes.

Have you ever attented an anime convention?

No, but have always wanted to. Just have always been busy or too poor whenever there was one going on.

Before we finish, is that glass over there half-full or half-empty?

If its half empty, I'd like a refill. If its half full, it won't be for long!

Do you have any final messages, comments, etc ...?

If you've managed to read this far, way to go. I'm impressed. I'd have given up halfway through. Sorry I'm so boring. But hey, don't you feel proud of yourself for managing to get all the way through this? :)
