!-! 3 | | 0!  <-- Hello
I am robonxt, a revolutionary humanoid designed in the US and programmed in Taiwan (just kidding...or not ;)
I am from the US, the old West to be exact, a place near the city in Big Hero 6, just bigger.  Also over here the sun is almost always shining, the BBQs are roasting, and fires start like, umm, wildfire?
 
I was raised by two amazing people who I call "parents", they taught me most of my cogitive functions.
I have one older human called "Big sister" and three younger humans called "Little brothers".

My race is what humans call 'ABT' or American-Born-Taiwanese, though I don't like it when people call me 'ABC', where 'C' stands for Chinese.
Language-wise, I have no skill in either English or Chinese but do it I must, for who can understand C++?
My only complete language is a special language called "Chinglish", a skill of alternating English and Chinese with some Taiwanese and a little bit of Japanese every other word or so.

Offline, I am 7 哥哥, a student, a assistant, and a teacher at various private institutions.  I enjoy playing with small humans for they think a robot human is pretty interesting. They are also the ones who gave me my name.

Online, I am robonxt, a crazy bot with crazy tastes in anime, manga, music, art, books, games, programming, and chatting.

LNs and mangas and anime.... They Da Best!

Well let's start.
Just call me ketan (the one you mix with rice to make it sticky).

I'm from Indonesia, harvested in bekasi a crowded city full of traffic near Jakarta (less crowded though).  Grown in Bekasi till finished middle school, then transfered alone to Jakarta to attend a highschool, ocasionally the wind blow me hard to home when i'm bored.

And now I'm in Bali attending college while being mixed with rice, don't ask me what i am studying anyway. Alone again with a bonus the wind can't blow me home, since it's a little too far (airplane ticket rather expensive, taking a damn whole two days if using ship and train/bus).
Well that is my random life.

Came to the dark side arround middle school, but already watching anime a lot sooner than i realized, arround 5 or maybe when i was 3, like tsubasa, medalbots, and other.
I am hooked to reading LN lately.

That being said, i'm bad at speaking english, but not that bad at writing and reading, rather good i guess?

I'm here like i mentioned above, to check the novel section.
Nice to be here and good luck for everyone~

Hello, :hi:

I was born in South Korea originally, moved to Indonesia when I was still in elementary school.. I went University in London, UK, but I've returned and working in Indonesia again for past four years.

Culture-wise, I am Korean, but what with spending more than half of my life mingling with people from other cultures, I found quite a few of my views clashing with people born and raised in South Korea. I don't have any issues with it, though. Apparently, I am a bit too casual(?) or tolerant(?) about a number of topics which aren't supposed to be considered casual..?

I can fluently speak Korean (mother tongue but accented), English (technically my choice of first language), and Indonesian,
and can speak passable Chinese, although I haven't read anything in Chinese for years and I need to brush up my Chinese reading skill.

I am a Finn, born in London UK during my parents year long holiday trip.
I speak Finnish and English quite fluently and Swedish I can understand when spoken to me, but I am really bad at understanding the writing and vocabulary.

I've been studying multiple languages, including Japanese, Latin, Italian, French, German and Russian, but I can't be saying that I am fluent in those and I mostly can read the languages, not speak them.

I wish to return to studying Japanese so I could become an interpreter and translator, but I am still far from that dream!

Like a lot of replies in this thread, I was born and currently in the Philippines  :hi:

I'm 100% Chinese by surname and blood, yet a total noob in Mandarin... Western by first name, yet with the facial qualities of an Asian  :onionfacepalm:
with that said, my culture is Chinese Filipino

I can read and write English and Filipino fluently, but can barely manage Chinese and Japanese--- Can listen & speak English, Filipino, Hokkien, Mandarin, and snippets of Japanese, Spanish & Bisaya   :trala: Note: Hokkien and Bisaya are both dialects.

I'm hailing from Cebu, one of the islands of the small country of the Philippines. We're basically next door neighbors with Japan but haven't gone there yet (not even once), opportunity has not knocked yet. Lived here and still living here.... I guess. Philippines is one of the Christian countries, but some Muslims and other ethnic religions still lives.... as for me well, I was baptized Christian.

We are of the Malay race and our 'kayumangi' (a tone of fleshy-brown) is one of our distinct features. But is now mixed in with other races as well with the occupation of Japan and America, the settlement of Chinese and intermarriages with other races.

The Philippines is one of the sought tourists around the world go to for vacations. it is an archipelago with 7,107 (that's a lot) and more than 200 ethnic languages (inc. Tagalog, Waray, Cebuano, Ilocano and the list goes on, and oh some are dying by the way) and a lot of other adopted languages (Korean, Japanese, Chinese, German to name a few). 

Although 'Filipino' is our national language, we have come to embrace the Universal Language as our main secondary language. And because of our relatively cheaper education and high quality neutral accent English, we are also a destination for non-English country citizens to study English.

We are food loving, songs singing, peace loving country.

I lived in HK for more than 20 years, Tokyo for a while few years ago, and just moved a small city in the UK few months ago. I can speak Cantonese and Japanese, but my Japanese skill is getting a bit rusty now...
I thought I hated the hot and busy HK and Tokyo, but now I miss the delicious food and vibrant atmosphere of both cities... so I'm reading a lot and buying many figures and gunplas to fill that void, and I feel bad...

I am Brazilian. Basically I was born in the country and raised at province's capital. Here some people officially speaks portuguese but there are ones that know english or spanish as well. Spanish or at least a poor mix between portuguese and spanish is wide known here because here is not so far from some other latin america countries.

G'day,

On forums and gaming communities, I usually go by the name of 'Creeper_'. Anyways...

I'm from Australia, and currently living in Brisbane, which is the third largest city in Australia with a population around 1.5 million.

I speak Australian English, as well as Vietnamese and a little bit of French and Japanese.
By the way, I'm not the 'typical' Aussie. I'm more like the 'typical' Asian :P.

Anyhow... have a great day :P
