I am a casual anime enthusiast, and a contributor on a certain KanColle fan page. Thanks to the aforementioned franchise and a long time of playing the game, I became interested on stuff about WW2 and started watching and reading materials, including anime, related to it. Hence, I am now slowly becoming a gunji otaku. During my free time, sometimes I write short stories but I never managed to finish anyone of them. :V
