My sister is 14 years older than me and my brother is 10 years older then me, and both of them are into anime. I grew up always seeing video games or anime on the TV, so I guess you could say it's in my blood.  I think I grew up with the typical anime that all 90s kids had... SM, DB and DBZ, Slayers, Outlaw Star, etc. I think because of this, I have a great fondness for older anime and tend to prefer it by default. I really, really prefer hand-drawn anime. 

While I love watching anime, I'm a reader by nature and have taken to manga more nowadays.  I've been out of the anime/manga scene for awhile and am trying to read and watch those that I just must see before I die.  

My favorite anime ever is Now and Then, Here and There.  Sailor Moon gets an honorable mention, though, because I was so obsessed with it when I was kid.  I really thought I would turn into Sailor Jupiter when I hit 14.  I really did. (No, I'm actually not kidding.  I was actually convinced and I think maybe I suffered from Chunibyou!)

My favorite manga is Fruits Basket.  I feel like that manga basically defined my high school experience. 

As I mentioned before, I've been out of the anime scene for awhile. Feel free to recommend me anything worthwhile! :)

Hehe, that's ok I'm just happy to hear f/ u ^_^

Hooray! So much accomplishment! :D

Yes my new job is great :)

I'm learning a lot and I finally get to do some real design work. It's not always the most exciting job in the world, but just to be able to work in a legit professional engineering consultant environment is so refreshing compared to my previous job ^_^

That's nice 😊 I'll have to check it out. 

I've just recently started back to anime as well. My young siblings brought me back into it but I haven't read many manga yet though.

I'm doing great, thank you for asking! 

I had ran out of reading material back around Christams time last year, up until then I only read novels, so I decided to try something new. I got online and started looking around and saw a page for manga and Monster caught my eye right away so I dived in! Now I'm glad I did because it opened a whole new door for me, now I can't stop! I did hear that Guillermo was gonna make a series, I'm so excited, I hope it happens! I have seen quite a few of his movies and I think he would do great with it!

I love Sailor Moon I still think it's cute! Hehe I know right, when I first saw it I was like, wow they are really tall! The anime is pretty cool too! I like the old hand drawn anime for some reason! :)

Hi there! How are you doing? 

Feel free to creep anytime! ;) Monster was my first manga ever and I loved it! I plan on checking out more of his works also! He has lots of series that sound great,like 20th Century Boys and the sequel. The Monster anime is great too, even though I've only seen the first few episodes, it seems to follow the manga really closely. 

Hope you have a great day! :D

Two psychological thrillers at a time? Is your mind ok? A break is probably a good idea! 

Actually, I've been wondering for a while what Skip Beats is like. I've seen a lot about it but never what it's actually like. Could you tell me? 

I think I'm getting better at not automatically disliking anything I consider girly, but for some reason anime and tv in general is one thing I can't get over. Hopefully I'll get to the point you have soon! 

Saving trees is definitely a plus of a kindle, but I'm not quite as easy to convince! My entire family's the same, even my technology obsessed sister prefers actual books to a kindle. I'm determined to get used to it one day, if only so I don't have to keep putting up more shelves! 

By the way, what is your favourite book?
