Founded in mid summer 2006, this average blog no body reads was created. Just like the millions of blogs out there, this focuses on the life of a loser.
My main topic of interests is on anime and on video games. Watching anime has become a past time for me and I enjoy writing about it if it worth writing about. The same can be said about video games which seems to be my main focus lately. I also read manga every once in a while. Watching random Nico videos is also fun!
I occasionally write up on events happening and what I am up to sometimes. Especially when I feel an update is due.
My name is Henry. I’m a graduate from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry.
On occasions, I like to pick up my guitar and play something as well. I am not very good at it but it believe it helps me relieve built up stress I accumulate over the week. I enjoy playing a lot of anime related songs that have an acoustic feel to it. Reading is also something I do but not as much as I would like.
I don’t consider myself a true otaku but I am probably border line. Watching anime and reading other blogs is quite nerdy in its own way but until I got out of my way and spend several hundreds of dollars on figurines and other anime related items.. I won’t consider myself as one… yet. Although I feel as if I’m growing out of my anime phase.
For the sake of making a list. These are some of my favourites
- Anime/Manga: Toradora!, Genshiken, Lucky Star, Matentai Loki Ragnarok, Bakemonogatari, Saki, Saitokai Yakuindomo.
- Music: Armin van Buuren, Yousei Teikoku, Kotaro Oshio, Cosmic Gate.
- Games: Tribes 1, Valkyria Chronicles, Persona 4, Earthbound.
For more insight about me. Please read my Outlook on 2009 post.
I had a more personal blog on Xanga when I started out. I’ve stopped working on it and is now an artifact. You can visit it here and get some insight to my head a few years ago.
After my last post on Xanga. I started with this blog. There is a year between the last post there and first post here. I deleted everything and decided to start over because it was not the type of blog I have wished for and I wanted to start off fresh… again.
What is does xdbit mean?
It doesn’t have a real meaning. It was really intended to have my site called vbits in remembrance of my Ragnarok Online character, (Lose) Verdandi. This was a time when Chobits was still fresh in many people’s mind and when I got the earmuffs headgear. Verdandi Bits was born.
I continued to use that name for games like Guild Wars. And then shorted it to V Bits.
Unfortunately, vbits was an already claimed as a domain and I thought of ways to circumvent it. ‘xd’ can be shorted from my email, I dropped the end ‘s’ and then decided to go with that.
A blogroll should be mostly intended for personal favourites and not just some link exchange program. Although I do not mind exchanging links, almost all of my links are personal favourites that I read every once in a while. There are several other good ones out there that are waiting to be discovered and I will add them to my list when I have the time to read them. I frankly don’t care to go out of my way to ask to put my links on other sites but I would be happy if some of my readers do.
If you do want to do a link exchange, just email me using the address below.

If you have any questions or inquiries, send me an email shown below.
You may also try and talk to me in real time through IRC.
‘trance’ on irc.irchighway.net. I idle in #projectzen where the topic is just about anything and everything under the sun. And sometimes things that should not see the light of it.
