Hey there! I have been watching anime since I was possibly 6, but wasn't really into it until I was 9. I bought my first manga at age 8, it was "Peach Fuzz", only the first volume. I remember being so fascinated by the style as I reread the thing over and over until it eventually disintegrated. The first anime I remember watching as a kid was Yu-Gi-Oh!, and the anime that started my obsession with watching anime is Tokyo Mew Mew. (Not Sailor Moon like most!) Because of the dumb 4kidz dub, Mew Mew Power, I hated dubs and started watching subs ONLY for anime. I've watched a lot of Hayao Miyazaki's work in elementary school such as Kiki's Delivery Service and Laputa: Castle in the Sky. My most favorite animes are Zero no Tsukaima, Mirai Nikki TV, Pandora Hearts, Guilty Crown, and Shakugan no Shana. My most favorite genre is and ALWAYS will be, Fantasy. My other favorites include Comedy, Shoujo, Adventure, Romance, and Sci-Fi, in no specific order. I don't really like Sports or Mecha anime too much, but I will watch them if the story is good!
On a note aside from anime, I speak English and a large bit of French. I am still learning though. I am picking up some Spanish and trying to accomplish the nearly impossible task of teaching myself Japanese. My ideal job is either a translator, graphic designer, or neuroscientist. I also paint and draw; play guitar, flute and piccolo; and cook.
Thank you for visiting, and nice to meet you! :D Feel free to leave a comment!
I rate things according to how into the anime I get, primarily, explaining why I have a lot of 4.5 because I get hooked onto good stories and just HAVE to finish the anime that day. A lot of times, it takes me ages to finish an anime because I get bored, so they get marked down after a while....
