🌸🌸 HELLO FELLOW OTAKUS 🌸🌸
🌺🍀🌸 WELCOME TO MY PAGE 🌸🍀🌺
FIRST UP, I don't take anime or manga too seriously.
I don't judge otakus or casual fans for their taste, because it's all just for fun.
⬇ ><><> TINY BIO <><>< ⬇
🎞🎞🎞🎞 I WATCH MOSTLY DUB. WHY? BECAUSE I DON'T SPEAK JAPANESE AND I'M TOO LAZY TO READ THE SUBS. 🎞🎞🎞🎞
(There's also Chinese Donghua and Korean hanguk aeni. Who has the time to learn all three languages?)
I also enjoy Sub. Some great stuff does not have an English dub and I still enjoy it.
(◔◡◔) I AM NOT ON ANY OTHER PLATFORMS. (✿◠‿◠)
I'M TOO BUSY LIVING LIFE, DUH (ง •_•)ง
Which includes, but is not limited to:
READING NOVELS AND MANGA
WATCHING ANIME, MOVIES, AND ASIAN PERIOD FANTASY DRAMAS
⚜ Writing ⚜
🎵 🎼 🎶 Listening to STRAY KIDS, NEONI, and IMAGINE DRAGONS. 🎶 🎼 🎵
And I'm also a farm girl. 🐈🐄🐐🐥🐎
🌻🌼 So much manga, so little time. 🌼🌻
😩🥴 SO MUCH ANIME. NOT ENOUGH INTERNET DATA 😞😭
🦋🦋 🦇🦇 😻 AND IN OTHER HAPPY NEWS 😻 🦇🦇 🦋🦋
The Apothecary Diaries is not only being animated, but getting two cours (24-26 eps.)
Black Butler is getting the Public School Arc animated in 2024.
My broke self....My wallet laughs at me.
(Speaking of my wallet, links to where I buy manga and anime, watch online for free, 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 💲💲
☘💗 Crunchyroll Store 💗☘
As of October 2023, my beloved RightStuf Anime was bought by Crounchyroll. I have only bought from them once so far since they changed ownership. So far, so good. A great place to buy anime, manga, figures, light novels, and merch.
🥀 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 Crunchyroll 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.
📚 ❤💘💜💜 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 WATCH ANIME ONLINE LEGALLY 🎬
🎞🎞 YouTube 🎞🎞
(Tip: Try using Opera Browser while watching YouTube. Its free ad blocker has been amazing for me. It's blocked 99% of adds for me.)
❤❤ Tubi ❤❤
(It's also free app on GooglePlay for android. For me in North America, I was honestly surprised how many anime series this app has.)
And of course, Anime Planet.
📜📰 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 Crunchyroll 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.
