Welcome. You've stumbled upon my profile. That sucks, because I'm not all that interesting.
Please call me Karasu. I've been hooked on anime for as long as I can remember, but what truly sold me was the premiere of Inuyasha on television in 2002. Toonami also had a hand in sparking my interests in the medium, introducing me to a number of great shows. I like to think my tastes are simple; I'll give anything a try, but I truly appreciate shows with vast, engaging characters and fun, intricate, or meaningful stories. I like to be able to feel the passion and hard work from the creators. I do have genres or themes I'm partial to; fantasy, shounen, historical, horror, action/adventure, shoujo/josei, and anything relating to feudal Japan, mythology, or youkai. I also dabble in manga, but do excuse my manga list; it's often poorly managed and neglected.
Aside from anime, I'm an avid gamer. I play on both console and PC. As with anime, I'm open to most things, but I'm all for games with a story to tell. When I'm not spending my time on anime or gaming, I enjoy reading, writing, playing bass (poorly), and recently, drawing and coloring. I'm slowly studying Japanese, along with various mythologies, and I'm a big fan of a band called the GazettE and visual kei in general.
I'm a retired moderator for the anime, tag, and character databases here on Anime-Planet. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to ask. Also, I'm married to Itachi Uchiha
