CaptainSlow is an pink-haired old wench from Australia who reads too much manga and stalls pretty much every anime she attempts to watch.
She was a Anime-Planet moderator for a couple of years, contributing to the Manga, Tag and Synopsis teams, as well as numerous moderation projects. The Comic Essays tag? The adding of dozens of Omegaverse entries? These synopses? That was her.
She likes making lists, and has gotten many of them featured.
Aside from anime, she likes playing the occasional video game, listening to whatever's on Triple J, and learning weird new things.
