My name is Catarina and I'm from Portugal!! Here, where I live, there isn't too much manga in stores nor too much anime airing on TV but I do my best to keep up with the trends!!! I wish I could do better, but my life sometimes can be quite time consuming... which sucks!!! (x_x)

I’m starting University this year and my schedule really really sucks! I have almost no time to breathe in the first semester! I hope I can still watch as much anime as I want to. Thankfully, it gets lighter in the second semester so there’s still hope! (^_^)

I have always dreamt of learning how to play the guitar, therefore I bought one, books and guitar related stuff about a year ago... Guess what, I still don't know how to play one single song (x_x) The guitar's in my bedroom getting dusty. It's probably all rusty now, or something (can guitars get rusty?) At some point in my life I hope I get someone to teach me how to play it...

I love to travel and be in touch with new cultures! I hope I get to visit Japan someday (oh another manga & anime fan who wants to go to Japan, that's not something you see every day...), specially Kyoto (I've had a thing for Kyoto since I was a child, don't ask me why because even I don't know)

Oh yea, this I'm having Japanese classes! It's really exciting, but a bit scared, at the same time lol

I don't know which one I prefer: manga or anime... It's a hard question, you know? Sometimes I'm more into manga other times I'm more into anime. But I usually read the manga at the same time I´m watching the anime, if I see it might be worth it (most of the time is).

I have a cat! She’s beautiful white cat, with green eyes and a little silver spot in the back of her head. She's so PWETTY!! (>_<) Her name's Yuki and she's my baby lol Seriously, I can't live without her, even though she's only been with me for a few months...

I also love coffee, ice cream (if it's coconut ice cream then I'm in heaven), dark chocolate, petit gateux and the best dessert in the world "Baba de Camelo" (it's a Portuguese dessert and if you translate it literally to English it will be: Camel's drool - I know it sounds disgusting, but I'm telling you it's DELICIOUS!)

Other things that I love are my iPod and listening to it, sleep, go out at night, cinema, theater, reading, table tennis, the zoo, twitter (it's so damn addicting), Spring, TV shows (like grey's anatomy, house, the L word, supernatural etc etc) and my friends!! - There are more stuff but those are the ones I can think of atm.

lol, i know what you mean about slow anime, its like torture! I haven't seen Aoi Hana so i cant compare it, but Maria-sama ga Miteru I think you will like.

Its about a girl, Yuki, who starts at a prestigious catholic girls school. In the school, they have a system there of older students taking care of the new students by becomeing their 'onee-sama' (older sister), and Yuki really wants to have one of the most popular girls in the school become her onee-sama, Sachiko.

Sachiko is a second year on the student council and the series is kind of both their stories as they become closer to each other. There are also other characters with their own onee-samas who have their own problems aswell.

It's not a fast anime, but i don't think it is boringly slow. Enough happens and the characters develop at a quick enough pace that is is easy to fall for them like in Strawberry Panic. The only thing is that it gets quite addictive, lol.

(also the way the student council works is a bit complicated when you first start watching but soon becomes part and parcel of watching it)

hope that helps, seen any anime that is like SP that I might like?

thx so much for responding! ur advice rly was helpful too! i am so glad theres often more to a series in manga!!! yay! that part of the reasons y i didnt give some anime a rly good rating simply because i didnt like the way it ended!! awesome!

anyhoo im actually glad to have anyone to talk to at all, not that you need converse with me but... i guess this would b an invitation to if ud like. anyhoo i just like to talk to ppl i have common intrests with to learn mor about my intrests themselves. idk lol

yeah thatwould be great to have.

although if you liked Strawberry Panic then another one which is fantastic is Maria-sama ga Miteru. Its also in set in a girls school and has a younger main character that looks up to the star of the school. If you liked SP then definitely give that one a go too.  : )
