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! :)

Thank you, I've added you now ^^ 

Really? Eh, to be fair most of our teenagers never read, so we have only one corner of YA in my local book shop. Sounds like you have a much better variety of YA stuff too. All of it here is either romantic-fantasy or books with a vocabulary range so small it's almost insulting. Not that I don't like romantic-fantasy, but too many in one go is not great. 

Haha, I've been wanting to watch Neon Genesis Evangelion for a bit, although I cannot stand whiny characters! Yes, ReZero is amazing! How far through have you gotten?

That 24-26 ep range is definitely an ideal length for a good well-developed anime, though some anime do tend to waste the space so like u said there r exceptions. Also, ur favorite anime? :O

Well if its 11 eps in a noitaminA show, and my favorite noitaminA show is most definitely AnoHana ^_^

Hooray! :D

Lol the devil face, ur so competitive apparently :P

Well I'm heading to bed, so good luck tomorrow!

Let me know how things r progressing :)

Monster is definitely I cool series, and I've absolutely enjoyed what I've watched so far, I just don't hav the patience to watch all of it lol

Hey hey hey, don't go dreaming about other boys u hav me :P

Oh yeah Long Branch is right on the beach haha

It's right next to Asbury Park which ur more likely to hav heard of since thats been a big beach town for a long time. Long Branch only rose in popularity recently cause they redeveloped it. The whole town used to be a huge slum but they did a great job w/ it now.

Oh I see, well, ur still talented, just in a different way :P

My literal favorite thing is hugging JJ, but I see what u mean *hug* ^_^

Well the anime it wholly based on the manga. Even this new series is based on what I believe is called like the Black Knight arc in the manga or something, which is like the most popular arc. I think that arc wasn't even in existence when the original anime aired haha

So soon! :O

Congratulations to u! :D

That does sounds like a busy JJ, but I admire JJ in all her endeavors *hug* :)

Well same old, same old for the most part. Work was pretty busy off and on last week. We're finally making some progress w/ the renovations to my apt but I'm still very unhappy w/ how slow things r moving overall considering my folks promised me everything would be ready for me to move in by the 1st week of August and I'll be lucky if I'm in by the end of August at this rate -_-

Ehh u don't wanna work in Newark, wayy too congested and people drive like maniacs lol. Long Branch is down the shore, and the beach area is actually very nice we go there f/ time to time in the Summer because its a bit further North so a little closer to where we're at (and traffic can get pretty nasty going down the shore). But u gotta be careful what part of the actual town ur in. Outside of West Long Branch it gets pretty dicey lol.

But if ur ever in Jersey let me know and we'll definitely get together <3
