Dan first encountered anime at the ripe old age of six with a VHS copy of Laputa. Ten years later he re-discovered it in Robotech and overnight a DVD collection was born.

Dan can also be found pulling his hair out as he tries to herd UKA members together for our anual gathering and find accomadation to hold us all as tenting doesn't come with good Wi-Fi and caravaners get annoyed if you use their vans as a projection screen for cat girls.
Films, reading, holidays to Japan, and miniature wargaming
