Hello, everyone. You may call me OkamiHime, Okami, or just Hime, if you like. ^_^
I really suck at bios, so I might edit this from time to time. I know it's long, but bare with me here...
I'm a gal on the Autism Spectrum with PTSD & anxiety, (along with other diagnosis') who's been watching anime for 23 years now, but I didn't truly know what anime was until I was 10, when Naruto premiered on Toonami, in the USA.
As for manga, I actually didn't know what they were/wasn't aware of them until one day when I was 13, and saw the Vampire Knight manga at Borders. (An American bookstore which has been gone for a long time now.)
MY INTERESTS: I have many, which include music, (currently I'm really into certain Japanese Visual Kei, anime OP's/ED's, and video game OST's) video games, (nothing online though, cause I'm not a PC player, and I don't like playing with random people. It's fine if others are, but it's just not my cup of tea) and watching stuff on Youtube/Hulu/Netflix/Tubi/Disney+. If you want to know more, just ask. ^_^
MY FAVORITE ANIME/MANGA/CHARACTERS: Take a look at my lists on here. A lot of them need to be updated though, but I'll work on them once I find the time. :)
MY PERSONAL RATING SYSTEM: (If you don't agree, that's totally fine, but for the love of all that's decent, PLEASE don't be a jerk about it... Everyone has different tastes & opinions, and I'm merely expressing my own. Also, my ratings may or may not change over time, and I watch anime & read manga for fun, and to help ease my anxiety.)
4-5 stars = Stuff that I HIGHLY recommend watching/reading. Basically, these are my absolute major favorites. <3
3-3.5 stars = Stuff that I still like & would still recommend to people, but they aren't my major favorites for some reason. *Shrugs*
2-2.5 stars = I may have tried to like these, but I just couldn't bring myself to actually enjoy them fully, for some reason. Most likely certain aspects made me uncomfortable. Won't watch/read again.
0.5-1.5 = Same as 2-2.5, only much worse...
0 stars = Either I'm not sure how to rate it yet, or I've forgotten to rate it.
MY FAVORITE GENRE'S: My main ones that I really enjoy are Slice of Life, Fantasy, Adventure, Mythology (particularly Japanese), and Romance, but you can check out my "loved" tags to get a better feel for what I'm into. Similarly, you can check out my "Watched/Watching" lists. :)
RANDOM STUFF: I live in the USA, but I won't say where, due to personal/privacy reasons...
I currently have a Betta fish, and am working on trying to obtain a service dog.
My favorite color is Purple, especially the darker shades of it.
My favorite animal is the wolf, (if you can't tell from my username :P ) but my favorite "mythological" animal are dragons.
My main language is English, but I've been studying Japanese off & on for several years. I'm not confident in my pronunciation, but if someone Japanese spoke to me in really basic/easy words, I'm pretty sure I'd understand most of what they're saying. :) In saying that, I can read Hiragana & most Katakana, but I cannot read Kanji yet.
VIDEO GAME(S) I'M CURRENTLY PLAYING/HAVE BEEN PLAYING LATELY: Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko. (Nintendo 64 version.)
Lastly, If you have any questions, I will try my best to answer them as long as they aren't judgemental or too personal. Also, please don't be upset if I don't answer your comments or messages right away. Life has been VERY hectic for me this year, so sometimes it may take me awhile to get back with you.
PS: Please don't ask me why I dislike certain characters... I suck with explanations, and honestly, I hate it when people pressure other people to take characters off their like/dislike lists. (Which I've seen happen.) Everyone has their own reasons for liking/disliking something, and no one should feel pressured or ashamed about it.
