Galaf: No, I don't.

uniquec: Do you get along with people then?

Galaf: Yeah but I have a strong personality. And I always say what I'm thinking despite whatever the teacher will think about it. So most likely, it gets into an argument.

Galaf: My most treasured item?

Galaf: Computer >_>

uniquec: Why so?

Galaf: 'cause I'm a geek/otaku?

uniquec: Lol. Which are you more a geek or otaku and why?

Galaf: Geek,'cause I like programming and 'cause I began programming way before watching mass anime. And 'cause I want programming to be my life (work life, I mean).

uniquec: Do you dream in colour or black aand white?

Galaf: I don't remember my dreams so I can't say...

uniquec: They aren't memorable.

Galaf: I don't care of my dreams. When I wake up, it's like "oh shit! I'm late!" So...

uniquec: You tend to over sleep then?

Galaf: It depends on the day. Sometimes I'm staying awake too late on my computer.

Galaf: Or sometimes, I'm too slow at the morning so I end up being late...

uniquec: What is the one thing you would want to change about yourself?

Galaf: Nothing. I like who I am.

uniquec: What would you like to be remember after your death?

Galaf: How stupid I was able to become.

uniquec: You think you would be stupid throughout your lifetime?

Galaf: I don't know. I can be serious or not.

uniquec: Would you consider yourself an optomist or a pessimist?

Galaf: Pessimist.

uniquec: Why?

Galaf: I don't know. I want to see the worst situation before the better one.

uniquec: Introvert or extrovert?

Galaf: Extrovert.

uniquec: Favourite colour?

Galaf: Blue.

uniquec: Dark, medium, light blue?

Galaf: Everything's blue.

Galaf: As long as it's blue.

uniquec: Heh blueness. So what is your ideal day?

Galaf: A day in summer where I can stay up as long as I want, I can wake up as long as I want, I don't have any homework, school is finished for now and it's not too hot.

uniquec: And not do anything?

Galaf: It depends.

Galaf: A day with friends can be good as well.

uniquec: Hanging out together.

uniquec: Have you ever met anyone from fansubbing?

Galaf: Yeah. Well, my bestfriends are subbers as well...

uniquec: Would you say they drew you into fansubbing or vica versa?

Galaf: Vica versa.

Galaf: Well, I had my own team, they had free time, I was lacking of timers, so...

uniquec: You made them learn to time :)

uniquec: Do you get along with the fansubbing community?

Galaf: Yeah of course.

uniquec: You aren't hated or picked on?

Galaf: Well, I'm hated by some people for sure.

Galaf: I can't please everyone.

uniquec: No you can't since there is always someone who hates you out there.

uniquec: Who would say has been your greatest influence?

Galaf: DarkSoul. He knew me 4 years ago, he has been and still is my main goal to achieve seeing Japan.

uniquec: He's been a mentor to you. What do you most admire about him?

Galaf: His advice.

Galaf: Japanese aside, he always gave me advice about my life.

Galaf: Truth is I'm still young, and I was REALLY young when I started fansub. So he's been like an online big brother to me.

uniquec: It's nice to have someone looking out for you.

Galaf: Yeah, he's a good guy.

uniquec: I haven't talked to him.

Galaf: He's living in Japan atm, so I don't think he'll answer you for now.

uniquec: Parting words of wisdom?

Galaf: Mmh?

uniquec: Words you live by?

Galaf: Mmh?

uniquec: Fine that will do then.

uniquec: Thanks for doing this despite you might not want to do it.

Galaf: np

uniquec: We would like to thank Galaf for doing the interview despite being somehow pushed into doing it by a certain someone. Hopefully, you got to know a little more of the other fansubbers out there.
