Hi there! Call me T-chan =)
I love anime and manga, obviously. Although I'd say I favor manga more :3 I also enjoy music, video games, traveling, and drawing. But I really love food and sleep hehe <3
So, I've been into anime for many years now. I believe I became more aware that some shows I was watching were classified as anime while I was in middle school, but I probably starting watching anime in elementary school. I started out like most people, watching the popular ones that were on TV like Sailormoon and Dragonball/Z. After my realization, I became really into it and started exploring other shows. Then I discovered manga and eventually became the otaku I am today :D I'm glad that I continued to look for more unknown series' and didn't just stick to the mainstream like many people do. I've also been attending Anime Expo every year since 2004.
I enjoy all types of genres of anime, and am usually open to trying to watch anything! Therefore I'm definitely open to recommendations. I do enjoy my shojo, but I also like comedies and action just the same. It just depends on how well done the plots and characters are for both. I do tend to stray away from certain types, but that's a minority.
[Btw, my manga list is not even close to completed...There are so many and it takes so long, so of course I get lazy about it.. Oops >.>]
