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! :)

Wait, seriously? That's kind of a misleading name... It does sound like a lot of fun though! I haven't seen anything with a zombie apocalypse in for ages, I need to watch more of that stuff! 

How's your day been so far?

Oh, that seems like a cool place! I've drank some boba tea before, but they didn't have rose flavour where I went. It sounds delicious! Yeah, I guess most people would agree that kaneki Ken did nothing wrong. Or at least, nothing compared to everything that's happened to him.

I definitely recommend it too! The part of the manga that was covered in the anime was very well adapted. I don't think there really was anything that was cut, except for a fillerish chapter. It was also pretty well animated, and both the voice acting and soundtrack are great. So yeah, if you feel like watching the anime, go for it! No, I haven't read or watched Monster yet. I really want to though, because I heard it's great!

Well, I think Berserk can seem a bit uninteresting at first because you don't start in the beginning of the story, chronologically speaking. You don't really know what kind of person Guts is, or why he's going around killing monsters, and you're only given some vague indications of that. I think that's what bothered me the most with this first arc. I was just waiting for a moment when I would undertand how he got in this situation in the first place. I don't really have a problem with episodic things as long as each episode managed to be interesting. If it just keep being the same, then I'll get tired of it. Yes, sometimes the first few episodes of an anime don't really give a good impression of what it will be like. I usually don't have a problem with the fact that the story starts slowly, but I can understand that you would. :)

Maybe! I feel like I should focus on reading new things first though, but I'm sure I'll come back to it at some point and give it a re-read.

Well, hotel names aren't always the most imaginative things, so I can imagine that some would be similar.

Yes, I am! But I actually don't really have a clear idea of what I'd like to do... I only have one year left, so I'm a bit worried about it. I don't really think I would like to be a researcher, so I was thinking I could do something like environmental management. That could be interesting. But I guess I'll see what kind of opportunities I get and fo from there.
