Hello everyone, I'm A7Xpilcher25!! I am a college student studying Music Business and currently studying Japanese and living in Tokyo, Japan!
こんにちはみんなさん。私の名前はステファニーです。音楽とビジネスの学生です。いま日本で日本語を勉強しています。日本語の学生ですか? 私と日本語を話すことを練習してください! ありがとうございました。どうぞよろしく!!
As far as anime and manga go, I love a little bit of everything. But some my favorite genres would probably be action/adventure, fantasy, and comedy. These days I lean a bit more towards thought-provoking psychological thrillers, historical fiction, and horror. But I can also be a bit of a sucker when it comes to shonen/seinen anime, with the stereotypical comedic, action packed, crazy, & suspensful plots, and the unimaginably powerful (but awesome) protagonists! I will always have a special place in my heart for Naruto, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Bleach. ♥
月牙天衝 (Getsuga Tenshō)!!! lol
Some of my other favorite anime series include Psycho-Pass, Steins;Gate, Parasyte -the maxim-, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood , Your Lie In April, Kuroko no Basuke, D. Gray Man, Attack on Titan, Code Geass, Ouran HSHC, Death Note, etc., etc (see Lists for my "official" top 25 anime & top 15 male/female characters). I just love anime in general! Though one of my all time favorite anime/manga series would have to be Black Butler. I absolutely love the Victorian era in Britain's history, and on top of it being a dark historical fantasy and having beautiful art, Sebastian Michaelis is...well, Simply One Hell of a Butler!
*sigh* I ♥ Sebastian 😍
I also love Yuri!!! on Ice! Some may consider it overrated, but in my opinion, Yuri!!! on Ice was about so much more than just the romance and the crazy fandom behind it. It was about the characters struggles and individual growth as ice skaters. It's characters are fun and full of personality, with visuals that really captured the art of ice skating. It's also one of the few anime to portray a same sex relationship in a more realistic way. But the best part by far, was the selection of great music, both for the soundtrack and theme music. The show is far from perfect, but I personally enjoyed every minute of it. I will admit though, that Viktor Nikiforov & Yuri Katsuki are probably my new favorite OTP! 😆
⇊ I mean just look at how adorable they are together! ⇊ 可愛いですね。♥♥♥
If it were up to me I'd always be watching multiple anime series on a regular basis. I sometimes wish I could just set aside all the homework, dishes, laundry, cleaning, and work that needs to be done and simply waste my days away watching anime...
⇊ This is me when new anime episodes come out! ⇊ 😄
But alas, I must try to be a responsible adult and productive member of society, so I don't always have all the time I'd like to feed my anime addiction...😔
But I don't care what anyone says...I'm still just a big kid at heart! So I will try to make as much time for anime as I can because I love it so much, and I don't think that will ever change.
I also LOVE music! I can listen to a little bit of everything, but my favorite genres are probably Rock/Metal, Instrumental, and J-Pop/J-Rock. I really love european rock & symphonic metal bands like Epica, Within Temptation, Amaranthe, Delain, Serenity, Nightwish, & Sabaton. Some of my other favorite artists/composers include Avenged Sevenfold, Kamelot, Coldrain, LEAH, Two Steps From Hell, Yasuharu Takanashi, Babymetal, Evanescence, Kalafina, Spyair, & many many more. So if you ever want to talk music or would like some suggestions, feel free to message me! I am also open to new suggestions! 🎶
As far as other hobbies go, I love to draw, play video games, sing, play piano, read, play basketball & volleyball, go to concerts & conventions, cosplay, and collect swords, anime merch, figures, miniature things...the list goes on and on. lol
黒子のバスケ makes me miss my High School team so much! ♥
I help admin a couple fan pages on Facebook just for fun, so I'll list the links in case you'd like to check them out: Sebastian Vincent Michaelis, Anime/Otaku Alliance, & D. Gray Man. Also, my gamer tags are Allira the Lost on Xbox One and A7Xpilcher25 on Playstation, same as my AP username, so feel free to add me if you want. But if you do, please message me saying you're from Anime-Planet, as I do not accept all random friend requests on PSN & XB Live. Well, I think that's about it so thanks for checking out my profile and I look forward to meeting all of you! (^_^)

This is one of the singles from Kamelot's new album The Shadow Theory. So far I really love the album!! I'm just bummed that I wont be able to see the band on tour. They're currently touring North America, while I'm currently studing abroad in Japan...but then as soon as I leave Japan to come home, they will be playing a few shows in Tokyo. In all the years I've listened to this band, something has always gotten in the way of me seeing them live...and as fate would have it, this year is no exception. Why doesn't fate want me to see this awesome band?!? I will never know... -_-
