In real life, I go by the name of Chris, but in the realms of the internet, I am known as GundamJehutyKai!
The name itself came by an IRC chat many moons ago and is a combination of my 3 main loves: Anime (Gundam), Video Games (Jehuty) and Giant mecha, which can be seen from the names used. The "Kai" was just added later as a suffix.
I'm a pretty big collector of anime figures and spend a lot of my time building and painting resin kits, so I tend to be more active on the Destructoid sister site, Tomopop but I thought I would jump the gap and see what else is in store!
I've been playing video games since the days of the NES and I still own almost all my consoles which I have purchased over the years, all in still working condition!
As well as building anime model kits and playing video games, I also maintain a small blog which I use primarily to show the progress of whatever model kit I am working on but I also throw in a few random video games review and particularly noteworthy news as well.
Feel free to check it out if you wish.
Remember my previous post about a Fan project to create a book to wish the composer of the Valkyria Chronicles games a happy Birthday? Well, this is the last call for those of you who want to take part. If you have already contacted the organiser with regards to taking part, the group will need your message by the end of the year!, Dec 31st. If you've just read about this project and want to help out, then the deadline for you will be Jan 15th so you have a little breathing space and time to enjoy the festive holiday once you have contacted the organiser.
Just to remind you all, the project is to give Hitoshi Sakimoto a habby birthday by giving him a printed booklet of hand written messages from the fans of his works.
The organisers are mostly into Valkyria Chronicles and the games are part of his better known works but any game which he has provided the music for will be fine (I thanked him for the Odin Sphere OST in my message!)
All you have to do is tell the organiser of the project on this page that you are interested and then write a small message either on A4 or A5 paper by hand, scan it to your PC and email it to the organiser. That's it! There's not even any cost to you aside from time and you will get a PDF of the book once the project is done! I'm not kidding, No need for any skeptical faces now!
I hope that many of you will take part. It's really not much work involved and you don't need to do anything fancy but it's a far more personal way to send the message of thanks to Sakimoto-san compared to just a massive number of tweets and FB posts.
Let's put in a bit of effort and get this done! Tuxedo Hans is watching you!!
