🌸🌸 HELLO FELLOW OTAKUS 🌸🌸
🌺🍀🌸 WELCOME TO MY PAGE 🌸🍀🌺
FIRST UP, I don't take anime or manga too seriously.
I don't judge otakus for their taste, because it's all just for fun.
ANIME AND MANGA ARE MY ESCAPE, THEY'RE JUST FOR FUN.
🎞🎞🎞🎞 I WATCH MOSTLY DUB. WHY? BECAUSE I DON'T SPEAK JAPANESE AND I'M TOO LAZY TO READ THE SUBS. 🎞🎞🎞🎞
I also enjoy Sub. Some great stuff does not have a translation.
(◔◡◔) I AM NOT ON DISCORD. WHY? I'M TOO BUSY WATCHING ANIME, READING, AND LIVING LIFE, DUH (ง •_•)ง
🌻🌼 So much manga, so little time. 🌼🌻
😩🥴 SO MUCH ANIME. NOT ENOUGH INTERNET DATA 😞😭
🦋🦋 🦇🦇 😻 AND IN OTHER HAPPY NEWS 😻 🦇🦇 🦋🦋

My broke self....My wallet laughs at me.
(Speaking of my wallet, links to where I buy manga and anime and get news on my favorites are listed further down, so take a look if you please.)
I love anything with relatable characters and beautiful art. My favorite genres are wide ranging; from kawaii to mature, violence to comedy, romance to thriller, and everything in between and every combination. My most favorite anime and manga are those I can enjoy again and again.
I'm really quite a simple person. I like what I like, and don't need a manga or anime to make me ponder the meaning of life or purpose of the universe. I'm not a top critic who will pick at every little thing in a story. I don't mind tropes; show me a manga or anime, or any story that does not have at least one or some. I don't hate an overused plot, as long as it isn't boring.
💖 I LOVE: great soundtracks, character development, relatable characters, good tragedy, and a good stupid laugh.
💩 I HATE: explicit sex, anything rapey, biological incest, over-used foul language, politics, or whiney characters.
PET PEEVES: Toxic romantic relationships (drop him/her like a rock and run), breasts so big they have their own gravitational pull, panty shots, and huge, gaping, really dumb plot holes. If I can drive Truck-Kun through it, I don't want to watch it (except Bungo Stray Dogs. They get a pass.).
🥇🥈🥉🏆 HOW I RATE 🏆🥉🥈🥇
TURDS (Low Ratings) 0.5 - 4.5 or 💩 to⭐⭐ "I wasted my life."
Generic, too predictable, smutty, rapey, plot holes, bad writing, annoying characters, overused, stupid plot devices, weird or just bad art, boring.
"MEH" (Average Ratings) 4.6 - 8.0 or ⭐⭐ 1/2 - ⭐⭐⭐ "Well, I finished it."
Generic, predictable, too ecchi, annoying characters, plot holes, boring.
I WANT MORE (Good Ratings) 8.1 - 10.0 or ⭐⭐⭐1/2 - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I gotta buy this to have it forever!"
Love the characters, sexy not ecchi, suspenseful, fresh, intreguing, funny, endearing, atmospheric, great detail, moving, or surprising.
I don't want to be one of those reviewers that hate everything. Some otakus can really fall in love with a certain character, or really enjoy a show that others think is really bad and use every nasty expletive they know to crap all over it.
Everyone likes something different. And it's all cool.
😎 Just because I put something in "stalled" doesn't mean I hate it. I just want to watch it later or I'm waiting for more chapters/volumes. 😎
🤢 If I dropped it, I hate it. 🤢
Some of our fellow otakus are parents, and thus just to be helpful, I will do my best to offer a parental rating I think is appropriate.
💲💲 WHERE I BUY ANIME AND MANGA 💲💲
☘💗 Right Stuf Anime 💗☘
This online store is located in Grimes, Iowa U.S.A. Everything is new and they are $2-$3 cheaper than full retail. The shipping is steep, but if you buy $75 worth of manga or anime, it ships free (in the continental US). I like them, but be aware of the sales. Sometimes their 10% off coupon is better, depending on what you want. And, if one item in your order is out of stock, that one item will hold up your shipment for months. They are testing my patience, but as long as everything shows up, I can wait.
🥀 Ebay 🥀
Yup. I keep my eyes peeled for auctions on anime. I've saved quite a bit on anime, but half of the manga listed there is a rip off. Why pay $25 for a manga when it's $10 on RightStuf for new? Mind your wallets.
💚 Abe Books 💚
It's mostly used books. If you don't mind an ex-library copy, it's not a bad place to check out.
🌍 Book Depository 🌎
Good selection and world-wide shipping. I haven't ordered anything from them yet, but this might be good place to shop if you have a hard time finding manga in your country. https://www.bookdepository.com/
📚 ❤💘💜💜 And don't forget to check out your local library. 💜💜💘❤ 📚
📚 My Public Library has been an invaluable resource for both anime and manga. 📚
I LOVE MY LIBRARY
Free. Nice selection. Legal.
📜📰 Where I find out more about my favorite manga and anime. 📰📜
Anime News Network https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/
UK Anime Network https://www.uk-anime.net/
Crunchyroll News https://www.crunchyroll.com/news
🍕 P.S. I don't get anything for sharing where I buy things. I just want to be helpful. 🍩
I know some newbies out there only buy on Amazon/Ebay and don't know about RightStuf or Abe's.
And if anyone knows another good place to buy anime, manga, figures, etc., go ahead and leave a comment. I'll check it out and maybe add it to my page so everyone who visits can know about it too. Being an otaku is not the cheapest hobby. My wallet cries.

Also I do not own the art displayed on my account. I used it only because it's beautiful. I wish I had half the talent these artists do. All rights belong to their respective owners.
