Moderator of the Month
Each month, the DDR Freak population decides on a moderator of the month by a poll. The moderator selected is an example of the best our forums offer and go above and beyond the call of duty.

Favorite movie, food, and book: Movie = Battle Royale, Food = Saba (sushi), Book = Shogun
What does your nickname on DDR Freak mean?: My Japanese teacher named me "Sakura" in class, so it stuck. I got "Dark" because "Sakura" was taken. Later on, Capcom copied me.

What do you do for a living? Do you enjoy it?: I am an escrow processor for the mortgage servicing side of a major bank. Enjoyment has little to do with my job.
