Ross Liversidge

Senior Editor/Publisher

Ross founded the UK Anime Network back in 1995 and works in and around the anime world, while also working across asia as an export ambassador for the UK textile industry.

Ross started UKA as a teenager while living in the wilds of Buckinghamshire. Over the years he's covered sweeping changes in the UK anime market, been poached to write some stuff for Sony and helps MVM Entertainment to run their IT & PR.

When not writing, editing or coding UKA, Ross runs a marketing and design company called Etharius, which keeps him occupied. Taking everything he learned from coding UKA, he's made a living from setting up other websites and navigating online marketing. In recent years he's become an agent for asian merchants importing British textiles, and travels to Vietnam, Korea and Japan, with the occasional week in Paris or Milan at international events.

Ross also sketches, is a keen cyclist, writes articles and collects Transformers, keeping him rooted in his youth and drowning in robot Rubik's cubes!

Ross visits Japan at least one month out of every year to enjoy the culture, buy robots and attend conventions.
