In case you wanted to learn a bit more about who the man behind The Traditional Catholic Weeb is, here’s five facts about me that aren’t all too obvious (such as the fact I’m a Canadian, a Traditionalist Roman Catholic, and an anime fan).
- Apart from watching anime, I’m also a big ice hockey fan. Ever since I came to Canada in the early 2000s ice hockey has been my favorite sport and enthralls me with its fast speed, exciting atmosphere and the high-octane performance of the players. I grew up on the Toronto Maple Leafs, my city’s hockey team, during the Mats Sundin era, but after their pathetic failure in 2014 I switched to the Chicago Blackhawks, and have rooted for them since.
- The anime character I relate to the most is Houtarou Oreki from Hyouka. He’s an energy-conservant boy who has a knack for pulling solutions out of his arse for any situation, no matter how ridiculous it may be, before lazing off to his usual “Don’t bother me” stance. Kind of reminds me of how I’m like when dealing with folks who need some kind of software update up and running. Oh, and also because his classmate is Eru Chitanda, who also happens to be my waifu. (I tell you. I met someone exactly like her in eighth grade and I use it as proof that waifus are real)
- My favorite cosplay that I’ve done is Judge Claude Frollo from Disney’s The Hunchback Of Notre Dame. I’ve worn it to three conventions so far. Part of it was because creating his triangular-shaped hat with the pattern proved to be a complex task which required a lot of trial-and-error, Internet resources, hot glue gun, and fabric magic to work out. It worked out though, and all the glory to God because through His inspiration I was able to create this design without faltering too much.
- My favorite non-anime films, in order, include The Man In The Iron Mask (1998), The Karate Kid (1984), Miracle (2004), Amadeus (1984), and Sudden Death (1995). In the case of the first two films, it’s become a tradition for me to watch them at least once during the summer because that’s how good it was. Miracle and Sudden Death are great hockey films which combine a lot of epicness into them, and Amadeus had great acting, line delivery, and introduced me to classical music which I’ve grown fond of to this day.
