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, and the anime that started my obsession with watching anime online, 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. Fukushima Haruka, Oouchi Natsumi, Mochizuki Jun, and Sakai Mayu are my favorite authors/artists. 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. He continues to be one of my favorite animators. My most favorite animes are Zero no Tsukaima, Mirai Nikki TV, Pandora Hearts, Guilty Crown, and Shakugan no Shana. My most favorite genre and ALWAYS will be, Fantasy. My other favorites include Comedy, Shoujo, Adventure, Romance, and Sci-Fi, in no specific order. I'm a huge sap when it comes to a good romance.
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 dream is to become a translator (hopefully for video games! Translating to French, Spanish, and/or English!)
Thank you for visiting, and nice to meet you! :D Feel free to leave a comment! (All anime, manga, and people are "clickable".)
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....
