I've been in love with anime since I was in the fourth grade. That was when I discovered Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z. My tastes have changed over the years and I like to think I'm into more sophisticated things than that now, but you just can't beat the classics.
You'll notice that I have mecha listed as one of my least favorite genres. Honestly I do enjoy mecha anime sometimes, but to me they just seem so impractical that I can't get past that and enjoy the show.
Also, I hate any anime that is about kids battling their pets, toys, or playing cards. To me it's just pointless and even though when I was a kid Pokemon was the SHIT, I couldn't stand it. Hate to admit it but it's the truth.
I like to amuse myself by drawing, reading, cooking, watching anime and folding paper ninja stars^_^, as well as spending time with my family.
