Here, let me get on with the answering of questions.

And here are 11 random facts about me.
I have loved anime and manga ever since I was a teenager.
I started learning martial arts because I was getting bullied at school.
The first martial arts class I attended was a karate class at a traditional dojo.
Any hope of me ever becoming a professional martial artist was crushed when I joined the army. Because that’s where I broke the ligament in my left shoulder.
I do not believe in conscription because I myself was conscripted against my will.
My favorite drink is Scotch whiskey, but I usually drink beer because I can’t afford whiskey.
I consider my writing to be more important than my work as a security guard.
My favorite anime shows from the 90s where City Hunter, Saint Seiya and Dragon Ball.
Whenever I play RPG games I would choose to play a Human character.
My favorite writers are Terry Pratchett, Lee Child, Jim Butcher and Simon R. Green.
I think it is easier to write in free countries without censorship because it would be easier to imagine good things happening in those countries.
