I'm a 34 year old female anime geek.
I started watching anime when Pokemon, Digimon and Dragonball Z made up the morning time slot around 1998 - 2000 (I exclude Sailor Moon which aired several years before, since I had no idea what anime was when I was 6 years old). After realising that there were loads more series I progressed to series like Card Captor Sakura, Ruirouni Kenshin and Berserk.
A friend from my high school later told me about the Dragon Ball Z manga and after a trip to the local library I began discovering more manga series like Ranma 1/2, Oh! My Goddess and even manga for girls - like Mars and Peach Girl.
I'll read and watch just about anything, besides hentai. I do prefer to read from a physical book over scans and I rely on the library a lot for this, so it does take me a while to complete a series.
Some of my favourite titles include: Cardcaptor Sakura, Great Teacher Onizuka, Nana, Clannad, Gintama, One Piece, Skip Beat, Detective Conan, Chihayafuru and Fullmetal Alchemist.
Besides anime and manga, I enjoy writing short stories, music and video games.
