I'm Chelsea, I'm 30, and I'm in Tennessee. By day I work for the US Department of Energy, by night I'm a gamer. I am an INFP. I love history and politics, I enjoy reading and video games, and I have a grey and white cat named Yennefer of Vengerberg.
Like most people my age I was introduced to anime through a combination of Sailor Moon and Toonami. I grew up in a religious conservative household so eventually all anime was banned by the time I was 13 (thanks to Love Hina). As an adult I'm trying to play catch-up from my lost teenage and early adult years. It has been fun rediscovering my love for both anime and the convention circuit. I've also enjoyed sharing my hobby with my best friend/boyfriend. It's been a huge change having someone as deeply entrenched in weeb culture as me and I'm super grateful. The same appreciation is applied to niche of the web that is Anitwitter. Ya'll are stars.
My goal for 2019 is to watch 100 different anime.
I enjoy slice of life, fantasy, psychological, comedy, drama, and sci-fi anime. I have no qualms jumping from something as fluffy as Lucky Star or Silver Spoon to something as substantial as Neon Genesis Evangelion or Akira. I also have a soft place in my heart for 90s and 80s anime. I tend to stray from most of the big Shounen and from highschool rom-com's but I can still enjoy them for what they are.
My favorite animation studios are MADHOUSE, Kyoto Animation, Shaft, P.A. Works, Trigger, MAPPA, Science Saru, and of course - Studio Ghibli.
