Hallo! Konnichiwa! ^____^
I'm Raven, I'm German &I'm learning Japanese. I got into anime a long time ago, manga more recently. I don't really have favorite genres-but I do like dark-type(?) anime/manga.
I'm Gothic, and a Christian...but that's not important XD
My favorite anime so far would be Ghost in the Shell (both seasons/series?)
My favorite manga is Mugen Spiral (when I first read it I laughed so much, wished it was longer than 2 volumes)
I'm more into Japanese music than the anime/manga scene, but obviously I still like it.
I absolutely love DELUHI♥ Girugamesh, Gackt, & Matenrou Opera are also my top favorites. I also like Versailles, Crossfaith, & SNoW (among many others).
I've read a few mangas in their German translation rather than English (no particular reason really) I also read a lot of graphic novels &manhwa...I really like Maximum Ride, though the manga is slower paced than the novels...My favorite manhwa is probably 13th Boy (because it was silly &cute). I also read this Chinese manga (manhua?) called Orange - it was TOKYOPOP full-color &just one short book-it didn't have much of a story line but the artwork was nice.
I shall be going to university in the autum, so I will probably have far less time to read/watch things, or go online. I also have a JPopAsia (JPA) account now with the same username... I'll go on that probably more just to chat with people and such~
