Sup everybody. I'm Calvin but you can call me Vin, Cal-ifornia, or whatever the heck floats your boat; I'm trash for retro anime, especially Lupin the Third (as you may have guessed by the name lol). Three years and counting of being gay af for Jigen. 👌👌👌 I'm an animator in my 20s, I cosplay as a hobby, and as far as anime stuff goes I like old stuff, stuff with good character designs (if the characters have the same faces I prolly won't be able to get into it), and occasionally stuff with hot characters that are my type lmao (that's how I get into most newer anime ngl lol).
Favorite genres are adventure, mecha, fantasy, sci-fi, etc. I admittedly do have a soft spot for magical girl anime, and occasional shojo stuff that catches my interest (Ore Monogatari is a good example of one that hooked me).
Important note: This is a no-moe household.
Favorite anime are Lupin, Big O, Zatch Bell, Yu Yu Hakusho, Jojo, and probably others I can't remember rn. Favorite movie of all time is Castle in the Sky. Favorite ships include Jigen and Goemon from Lupin, Avdol and Polnareff from Jojo, and tons of others (if you want to break the ice with me, a fun question is asking who I ship in a specific anime). Don't really know how the social aspect of this site goes so *shrug* hmu I guess?

Anime I'm Watching This Season:
None; one full year was the official amount of time I spent actually following anime seasons. It was an interesting experiment. Will let you all know if I go back eventually
