Hello, everyone. :)

I'm not very good at doing bios/introductions, so bare with me... :S


HOW I GOT INTO ANIME: I was around 2 yrs old when I first started watching Pokemon, but I didn't truly know what anime was until I was 10.

HOW I GOT INTO MANGA: I didn't know what manga actually was until I was 13, and one day I went shopping with my mom & saw the Naruto manga in the magazine section at Walmart. Another early & fond manga memory I have is discovering Vampire Knight in Border's (a bookstore which is no longer in business) via a free pamphlet that showcased different mangas, with Vampire Knight being obviously one of them.


 
"WHAT ELSE ARE YOU INTO BESIDES ANIME & MANGA, OKAMI?"
I have several interests which include music, (currently I'm really into certain Japanese Visual Kei, and anime & video game OP's & ED's!) video games, watching stuff on Youtube, Hulu, and Prime Video, and I also love to read. :)

"WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ANIME, MANGA, & CHARACTERS, OKAMI?"
Honestly, I cannot pick just one, so if you'd like to know, take a gander through the lists I've created on here, which should give you a feel for what I'm into. Similarly, you can check out my "Watched/Read" lists too.


MY PERSONAL RATING SYSTEM OF ANIME & MANGA: (If you don't agree than that's fine, but please don't be a jerk about it. Everyone has different tastes & opinions, and I'm merely sharing my own. Also I may eventually update this, but we'll see...)
4.5 - 5 stars=My major favorites. :D Would HIGHLY recommend as "must watch/must read" no matter what!

3.5 - 4 stars=I really like! I may find only a couple of flaws with it that prevent me from giving it a higher rating, but other than that, I pretty much enjoyed them, regardless.

3 stars=I overall found it pretty good, but may have wanted things to turn out differently and/or I found some flaws in it that prevent me from giving them a higher rating.

2 - 2.5 stars=If I give anime & manga these ratings, it means that I thought it was okayish in certain aspects, but I doubt I would rewatch/re-read it again...

0.5 - 1.5 stars=I may have ONLY liked 1 or 2+ characters, or I ONLY liked the music, or ONLY the art/animation, but overall there's just something about it that just doesn't quite sit right with me for some reason that I can't explain in full detail. In other words, I will not watch/read again...

0 stars=Either I'm not sure how to rate it yet, or have forgotten to rate it, or am too busy with other anime/manga to rate it yet, or I straight up despise it for whatever reason...


RANDOM STUFF ABOUT ME:
You may call me OkamiHime, Okami, or just Hime, if you'd like. :) (I don't use my real name on here for privacy/personal reasons.)
My username was inspired because my favorite animal is the wolf, and when I first played Okami for the PS2 many years ago, it just totally fascinated me.

I used to write poetry in my spare time, and I also am/was working on 3 novels off & on for several years. (No, I don't have anything published or online, since the novels are unfinished...)

I have anxiety & am on the Autism spectrum, so while it can be very hard for me to initiate/start conversations with others, (though as of recent, I've been coming out of my shell more) I love to make friends, so if you don't mind all that, feel free to chat with me in the forums, or down below! \(^_^)/
I also have PTSD, so that's one reason why I will not watch certain animes or read certain mangas...


PS: If you have any questions, I will try my best to answer them, as long as they aren't too personal, and there's no judgement behind your question(s) Also, please don't be upset if I don't answer your comments/messages right away.

And on that note, I hope whoever is reading this has a wonderful day/evening, and thank you for reading my bio! (^_^) (You also get a cookie if you've read this far lol. :P )


Edit as of 6/21/2020
If I put mangas/light novels/Manhuas, etc in my "stalled" list, it means that I'm waiting to get the next physical copy of a certain volume to that particular manga/light novel/etc, since I prefer reading physical copies VS online.

Promare is about a calamity called the "Great World Blaze" where mass human combustions wiped out half of earth's population. The movie takes place 30 years after this incident, and follows a group of people called the Burnish who can control fire. I think it's better if I don't spoil anything else. It's made by Studio Trigger, so if you have watched/enjoyed Gurren Lagann or Kill la Kill, you'll love this movie.

In the UK, we have services like the Autism Treatment Centre and we do have Occupational therapy branches aswell, and many are offered in the NHS. I'm surprised you say that the US lacks some of those  services because some of my friends and people I've spoken to from the US say that there are unlimited choices for therapy, whether it be mental health or dyspraxia etc

I had Occupational therapy at one time when I got so depressed at the job situation I was in. This was all because of my line manager. She was awful so I went there and only spoke to a doctor about it. They were of no use at all and were thinking at one point of writing me off but only suggested getting anxiety pills or something, which is so pointless. 

I attended many psychology courses and they were so much better. I wasn't speaking to medical professionals but I was in a group with people that I got along with so well and this really got me back on the right path again. Yoga and buddhist classes did the same. Sometimes mindfulness can be much better than medicine. 

But anyway back to anime. I've heard 5cm per second is very slow but really good nonetheless. I also haven't seen Ocean Waves by Studio Ghibli yet, so I'm planning to watch that aswell. It's not as well known as their other works and I have most Studio Ghibli films as I'm a huge fan, but I have yet to see that one and also Ponyo. I've not seen that either. I'd like to complete the collection.It's just like Disney. I really feel like you absolutely have to see all the Disney films, animated and live action (not the remakes, but ones like Mary Poppins and Bedknobs and Broomsticks) even the ones that were failures like Oliver and Company and The Black Cauldron.

I completely understand why you wouldn't want to watch Attack on Titan. It IS extremely violent, pretty much Game of Thrones violence. It's known as The Game of Thrones of Anime which says it all really. I also love Game of Thrones. I didn't want to watch Attack on Titan or Game of Thrones either, but I got hooked and couldn't stop watching. 

Aww, I'm so sorry to hear that about your mum. I'm so glad to hear she's getting better. Keep your chin up, I'm almost certain she'll fully recover.  At least she's maintaining a better lifestyle now. I've never smoked in my life and never will because of all the health problems you can have with it and heart attack is one of them. You won't lose her. She's doing very well already and if you keep having a positive attiude, things will go back to normal again. I know it can be really terrifying but  both of you will be fine :)

I'm sorry to hear that. I think you mentioned your mother to me before, hope she's doing okay <3

I have heard of Blue Spring Ride before, maybe I might give that a watch. I've been watching Danmachi atm, which is a pretty boring series in my opinion. I watched the movie Promare today, and I loved it! Have you seen it?

And yes, I forgot to mention but I agree with you about XOriginalGirlX. She is very sweet. She's a very friendly and kind person :)
