I'm a second-generation Korean-American. Born and raised in sunny Southern California, I enjoy swimming and watching anime (obviously). I am only 15 years old, a freshman in high school.
My favorite anime genres, as listed below:
1. Comedy: I'll watch anything with decent humor in it. I particularly enjoy "Gintama" in this aspect.
2. Ecchi: This kind of goes with comedy. Ecchi can be pretty darn funny if it's done right, and I enjoy slightly perverted humor (you know, being a high schooler and whatnot).
3. Horror: There is a kind of thrill I get from watching scary situations, and I am not particularly put off by blood and gore.
I also enjoy drama, romance, and slice of life type stuff. I am willing to try almost any anime and manga if it's recommended to me. However, I just cannot stand reverse harem and certain shoujo-style artwork. Sports animes can get kind of boring, although I do like "Eyeshield 21".
I love going to school and learning about different stuff. I am particularly interested in science, languages, and history.
I plan to go into a career involving either writing, science, medicine, or linguistics. I want to learn Japanese so that I can enjoy anime and manga that have not been translated. I am taking Spanish as my elective, and I hope to learn to speak it fluently as well.
I am extremely liberal and leftist in my political views (oh noes, a socialist! XD). I support gay marriage and a woman's right to choose to have an abortion.
As for religious beliefs, I am an atheist. This does not mean that I hate religion, it simply means that I do not believe in any higher power. I support religion and tolerance of race, caste, sex, creed, sexual orientation, etc.
I hope that I can meet some new people on Anime Planet and further my repoirture of animes (That is how you pluralize it, right?). So far, everyone has been very friendly and welcoming, and I am truly enjoying the experience. In particular, special thanks to "cassiesheepgirl" for responding to my profile comment so quickly. When she responded, I felt like I was talking to a celebrity. XD
