KarinXOXO - if she was a real anime character on Anime-Planet, she would look very similar to Mayumi NISHIKINO from The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior.
She is a and the rest of her actual bio can be found below.
My user name is to pay homage to Karin Maaka from the anime, Karin aka Chibi Vampire (manga).
I was never into anime, let alone knew what anime was until 2010. My first anime seen were Karin and School Rumble. I dabbled with it a little bit but it just never kept my interest, for whatever reason. I watched a few shows a year but it wasn't until 2015 where I started having a love for it and watched it more consistently.
Soon it became obsessively so - meaning, I sometimes go on binges to "pound" out a season in two nights just because I cannot stop! The storyline, the characters, everthing, just pulls me in, into their world!
"Anime addiction has possesed me, consumed me whole and obsession is taking over...must-stop-the-monster-within!"

~A Little More Background on Me!~
Besides anime, I have many other interests/hobbies and always open to trying new things. I am crafty and love to scrapbook. I also love planning, organizing and executing events - the event planner in the family! I also write stories and poetry, nothing professionally yet but maybe one day...
