Hello to my fellow anime fans!
My journey began when I was 15 with the wonderful anime Noragami. Since then, I've dived into all sorts of different genres and expanded into manga and live-action dramas from all over eastern Asia. For me, anime was a gateway into the language and culture of Japan, and, by extension, of South Korea and China. I'm currently studying linguistic anthropology at my university, with an emphasis on East Asia. Without anime, I never would have been exposed to the languages and cultures I have come to love. I know that was sappy, but moral of the story? Watching anime is not always a waste of time :D
Anyways, onwards to the good stuff!
My current all-time favorite animes (excluding movies)
I love the psychological, action, and romance genres the most, with sports anime coming in close. I will have to dedicate an entire section to that genre, though; there's just too many to choose from! I will also admit that I have a bit of an obsession with My Hero Academia... I own way too many figurines. My dorm is full of them. Oh, and the manga is taking over my shelves.
My current all-time favorite sports anime
My least favorite genres are ecchi, yaoi, and yuri, and their closely associated genres (in other words, excessive fan service and over-sexualization of characters). I'm rather picky about content in my anime, and those genres contain everything that I want to stay away from. If I'm being honest, most fanservice drives me up a wall. There are very few animes that I actually enjoy it in (cough, cough, Free!).
My current all-time favorite anime movies
Now, onwards to the manga! I will admit that I am a bit of a comic book and webtoon addict and an absolute sucker for romcoms. So please, if you know of any good ones, please share them with me!
