I'm a closet anime watcher, meaning, I love to watch anime but don't talk about it with my friends or family very often and i'm completely incognito about it.
I have a new found love for cosplay because of how detailed and amazing the costumes are, I AM not into actually cosplaying or going to conventions though. I may be REALLY into it, but I just can't see myself being with a lot of people who think they're right about anime. It's all subjective and oppinionated. I also have an anxiety disorder, so that wouldn't help at a big convention like Sakura Con.
I Do like to draw cartoon characters, superhereos, and actors, and sometimes i try my hand at anime characters. Lately, I've been drawing them to get my own manga like style.
See, I have a deviantart: Dakotasapphire
And I drew Hikki [not proportionally accurate, but I like to draw my own way haha] :
I also drew FREE [Soul Eater]
My first anime that I actually remember watching was Sailor Moon, but I didn't know it was anime until later on when my sisters friend was watching Naruto and she said it was anime. I didn't know what 'anime' was before I was 11. I guess I used to be a wild child before who stayed outside all day [yey]. I love shounen anime, which isn't that normal for a girl, but I just do, plot does matter to me, but when it comes down to it, I just want comedy and action. Don't get me wrong, I love Scifi and supernatural anime with great plot lines [Steins;Gate, Ergo Proxy, etc], but when I really want something to get my blood pumping I watch something like Naruto, One Piece, or Bleach. I also LOVE certain shoujo sometimes. [Hana yori dango, Skip Beat, Wallflower, etc.]
Favorite Anime Character Ever: Zoro [One Piece] whom I've loved since I saw him fight on One Piece [years ago].I also think Kyon [The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya] is magic, but unfortunately, I doubt we'll ever learn what his real name is [it's not kyon haha].
My standards for rating: (I rate based on my love for it, I'm not that huge of a critic)
5- Masterpiece, I loved it with all of my heart, Definatly worth rewatching
4.5- Perfect-ish, Could of been better, but I still loved it with all of my heart, to rewatch
4- Great anime, Could of been better, Wish there was more, worth rewatching
3.5- A little better than average, Entertaining, not the best story, May rewatch
3- Average. Entertaining, somewhat. Chances are slim to rewatch this anime.
2.5- Its crap, but I put up with it, will not rewatch at all.
2- More crap then 2.5, Could barely put up with it, will not rewatch at all.
1.5- Hate it so much. I wish I didn't watch it.
1- Ew. Complete and Utter crap.
.5- UGG. COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME. Complete and Utter CRAP.
My standards for want to watch, won't watch, stalled and dropped.
Want to watch- I seriously want to watch this anime... Sometimes it has a bad rating, but I'm a daring type and I want to check it out on my own. The anime might also have an incredible manga, so I might watch those too. I might watch it soley because it was created by a favorite mangaka of mine.
Won't Watch- Will not watch. This may be because I don't like the description, It has an extermly low rating with extremly bad reviews, I don't like the genres its in at all, or I watched the anime before it, and hated it utterly.
Stalled- An anime that I like and want to continue, but I forgot about it, and I'm watching another anime. Will eventually be back on my Watching list. Or, I liked the first episode, but doesn't seem good enough to be worth my time at the moment, so I will just stall on it, and When I do have time, I will watch it.
Dropped- Most likely, hated it completly. Some chance of me watching it. Might pick it back up because I'm intrested in
trying to watch it again.
