Hey there, I am here! My name is of no import, but you may call me Like~

I've been binging on Anime and Manga since my A-levels, 2012; aside from that I enjoy diverse literarture, mostly fantasy, science fantasy and science fiction though! (Favourite genre: Dying Earth Fiction)
From time to time I challenge myself by learning new languages - only romanic and germanic ones this far^^

I have poor motor skills while being very sportive, so I run most of the time and bike the rest of it. The latter leads to injury more frequently than I like, just two weeks ago I had a pretty bad fall while biking and still can't do any sports...So I'm rather stir-crazy right now. (To help that I go on walks with Pokemon Go, for nostalgia's sake)

Other than that, you might sometimes notice my wording being off - English is only my second language, albeit I think I'm doing well enough - or me being snooty when I don't intend it. (Comes with having German as native tongue; I'm not German)

Hm...the games I enjoyed most, recently, are Pillars of Eternity, Harvey's new Eyes, Mechwarrior online (the grind drove me away), Baldur's Gate 2 (replayed that one), Bloodborne and the Souls Franchise in general (Demon's Souls still is my favourite)

YOROSHIKUUU!!! :D

Hello! Another member from the UK - your English seems pretty good from here, better than some Brits anyway.

よろしく!

Yellow! I wanted to go for blue, but then the intro said something like "The wisdom of Pokemon is immeasurably deep" - So now I'm stuck with those intuition freaks.
There isn't much going on in my village though, so I play a bit while ambling the farm lanes and paths around, there's no community to speak of. (I'm happy about the placement of the 3 Pokestops and single Arena - all within 300m of my home)

I've always heard you guys had perfect English, though. Has r/polandball misled me once again?

Really depends on the person; I guess it's a bit easier for german-native speakers to learn english, it being a germanic language after all.

I've learned most of my English reading and surfing the internet, so I'm quite comfortable writing ~ My pronunciation could use some work though.

I wouldn't have ever thought you weren't a native English speaker if you hadn't pointed it out. For a second language you have a pretty good grasp on it. Hope you do well here!

You would not believe the crap that some chavs think is the Queen's English! Your english is perfectly fine. Welcome, we've been getting quite a few people from the UK recently.

Thanks for all the heart-warming salutes! Somehow or other I was even taken for a brit at the very end, that's good.

Reminds me of last summer when my accent was deemed british by a swedish MILF IRL.
