hi! im amber, im from the netherlands, and ive been watching anime on-and-off since ive been around 13! i used to watch things like pokemon and yu-gi-oh as a kid (like almost everyone else really), but after that i got more into anime and have been watching it since! the total of things ive watched isnt that impressive or anything though, since i take breaks frequently that can go from months to a year or more, depending on how busy i am or if i feel like watching anything at all to begin with. ive got different hobbies too yknow?
talking about different hobbies, those would include some obvious ones like playing videogames and drawing, but i also enjoy reading books (shoutout realm of the elderlings series), fencing, watching rugby, playing tabletop games and boardgames (especially pathfinder)... i also enjoy cosplay, wearing (and making) costumes in general, and larping, but i dont get to spend as much time on those as id like lol. and thats all while working a fulltime job of course haha. i work as an information specialist, and i went to university to get a degree in archaeology, so thats one of my interests as well even if it has been a while since i really go to do something with it.
as for the way i rate stuff... id guess its pretty biased. i watch anime for fun and to relax after work yknow, so i really just rate things depending on how much i personally enjoyed it. so even though something might be considered popular or good, my score might be on the lower end because it didnt really grip me, or something thats considered stupid or something i might score high because it entertained me a lot. my tastes really arent that sophisticated anyways so im not trying to impress anyone haha. plenty of scores on my list too that i might no longer feel the same way about because its something that i watched when i was 13, you know how it goes!
all that said, i actually do enjoy chatting about anime! i just dont really have the energy for arguments about why i should like something more or less than i scored it and stuff like that, again im just here to have fun. i dont mind recommendations or questions though! would love to hear them actually. of course, i like chatting about other things as well!
heres your reward for reading my idiot profile, thank you;

ps: if the way i type is hard to read then please dont hesitate to tell me and ill type with proper grammar and punctuation! i can actually do that no problem, i just got very used to writing like this over time lol
ps again: for the lists of characters i like/dislike please dont worry and read too much into it lol some might be in the dislike list even though i think theyre well-written etc. its just purely whether i like seeing them on my screen or not and theres not much logic behind that either as some 'annoying' characters i really love because they make me laugh, and some are in my dislike list because they exhaust or annoy me even though theyre very similar to the characters in my list of liked characters. theres not much logic in it im sorry, i promise if you think the opposite of these characters i fully understand, its not that deep for me haha
