Ben

Cold Cobra

Having watched anime since it was airing late night on the Sci-Fi channel in the late 90s, I consider myself... someone who's watched a lot of anime, and then got hired to write reviews about them. Hooray!

When she's not watching anime, reading manga or reviewing, Demelza can generally be found exploring some kind of fantasy world and chasing her dreams of being a hero.

NormanicGrav

As Weiss once said "But enough of this introductory chatter! Let us hear your tale!". After finishing University studying Game Development and once taking charge of SHU's anime society. Grav ventures on as a News Reporter, Moderator and Discord Admin. If you see that massive legal streaming thread Grav heroically did all that and had consumed many hours of his life. The reason? He was bored.

Rui

Rui can usually be found on the Anime UK Forums ready to leap in and converse with anyone else as passionate about historical anime (fantasy or otherwise). There is apparently some debate around whether Rui is an actual person or some kind of experimental anime-obsessed A.I.
