Tis strange that no one replied to your introduction.
*looks around for the welcoming committee*
Being in a hurry and all, but wanting to show my small contribution:
Welcome to animeonline, the one and only place that tons of veteran anime/manga lovers hang out and discuss various subjects that include anything that crosses their mind, while still keeping it nice and clean...most of the time ^^
If ever you are into contests that demand some photoshop skills, be sure to check out this section:
Graphics, Wallpaper and Web Design - Anime Online
There is also a quiet AMV section:
AMV's - Anime Online
And as for anime and manga, I'm certain that you'll find the Pikachu crumbs that lead to various places of interest.
