I am currently employed as an adjunct professor at two state colleges in Connecticut (adjunct meaning intellectual migrant worker). While I enjoy the work (well, more often than not), I am currently working on returning to graduate school to acquire my doctorate. My areas of interest, in terms of literature, center around seventeenth century utopias and dystopias and sexual representations as a form of political and social satire.

I've been watching anime for several years (when I first started watching, fan subbed anime was only available via vhs), and I fully intend to continue doing so for as long as possible. I have a variety of interests when it comes to genre, but based on the above you should be able to figure out where my true interests reside. I do a little fan subbing (qc work) which, while trying at times, has proven to be an enjoyable experience

While I do enjoy watching fan subbed releases (how else would we keep up on the latest and greatest?), I do own quite a bit as well. I am also a huge fan of manga (I love exploring a story in its entirety, something that is rarely possible with anime).

Hey Eikono, I think you've submitted anime synopses before? I notice you have a big collection of manga that we don't have in the mangarec yet - adding stuff to the mangarec is super easy compared to anime as we only need the synopsis, no screens or anything (well, and tags if you can think of any).

Any chance I can convince you to write some up for those manga? XD

Even if you don't want to write synopses for things that don't have anime, what would reaaallly help is if you can look at the anime synopses for the manga titles you have that we don't have, and *as long as the synopsis works perfectly for the manga* (has to cover a good portion of the manga, such as 1 vol of 3 total or 3 vols of 10+ total, and has to not have any differing details), we can just use the anime synopsis for the manga entry ^_^

Here's a list of the titles I found in your list that have anime synopses but not manga: Cheeky Angel, Crying Freeman (this anime synopsis might be wrong though, I've received reports about it), Eiken, Full Metal Panic, Fushigi Yugi (we only have Genbu Kaiden), G Gundam, Girls Bravo, Gunsmith Cats, Hanaukyo Maid Team, Happy Lesson, Hayate the Combat Butler, He Is my Master, I''s, Kamichama Karin, Kashimashi, Kujibiki Unbalance, Kyo Kara Maoh, Louie the Rune Soldier, Maburaho, Maison Ikkoku, Mao-chan,  MAR, Haruhi, Miyuki-chan in Wonderland, My-Hime, Onegai Teacher, Onegai Twins, Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch!, Pita Ten, Pumpkin Scissors, Read or Dream (I'd assume you'd look at the ROD TV synopsis?), Ranma 1/2, RG Veda (the examples in this one are based out of the OVA so I'd be suspicious of this one), Rizelmine, Rosario Vampire, Rozen Maiden, Saikano, Shakugan no Shana, Sorcerer Hunters, Steel Angel Kurumi, To Heart

As you can see this would have a *huge* impact on the mangarec if you could even just confirm if any of those anime ones match the manga ^_^ ^_^ (you can just say 'same tags as anime' too). Pretty please??? XD <3

There needs to be an option for "Great Username," because that's what I was really going for. Very clever choice as a username ^_^

Finally! Someone else who has Excel Saga in their top 5! I loved that show and it's always great to see someone else who enjoyed it as well.
