(LAST UPDATED ON 9/29/2022: Dear friends and followers, due to a couple of users who may or may not have made me feel like my anime game is slacking this year, despite me telling them I had Covid, and was going through personal issues and thus couldn't watch much anime during that time, I am needless to say hurt. So I feel the need to say this: If you can't stand the pace of how I watch anime, then either unfollow me or block me, instead of making fun of me for it...)

Section 1: WHO IS OKAMIHIME95? -
I'm a North American woman with social/general anxiety, is autistic, and has PTSD among other diagnosis'.

I've been watching anime since I was almost 3 years old, and my first one was Pokemon. However, I didn't truly know/understand what anime was until I was 10, when Naruto premiered on the USA version of Toonami/Cartoon Network.
As for manga, I didn't know what they were until I was 13, and randomly found the Naruto manga at the magazine section in Walmart lol.

You may call me OkamiHime (without the 95. :P I just added it because it wouldn't let me do it otherwise), Okami, or just Hime. (I don't use my real name due to privacy reasons, so please don't ask for it.)

Oh, and in case you're wondering, I actually watched more anime than what is shown on my "Life on anime" bar, but certain things I never got to watch fully and/or don't remember what episode I left off on. So until I can watch them again, those particular ones won't be added. I also don't count rewatches as part of my life on anime bar, so that's why it might seem small for some people, even though I've been watching anime for almost 25 years. 

I have many, which include Asian drama's & movies, offline console gaming (more about that later...), and music.
(I do listen to some BTS now & then, but lately I've been MUCH more into Japanese Visual Kei, J-Pop, J-Rock, and Japanese music in general. I also love listening to certain anime OP's/ED's/OST's from stuff I've watched, and certain video game OST's from stuff I've played.)
Other than that, I collect Yugioh/Bleach/Naruto/Pokemon/Magic: The Gathering/Vampire: The Eternal Struggle, and certain other TCG's. (Emphasis on COLLECT, since I don't have people to play with irl, and I'm just NOT comfortable doing online gaming.)
Want to know more? Just ask! ^_^ 

Firstly, please note that my ratings may or may not change overtime, and that I watch anime & read manga for fun, and sometimes to help ease my anxiety. (Why slice of life/Iyashikei's are part of my main go-to's.) Therefore, I don't do it to please others. So if you don't agree about my ratings or opinions, that's fine, but for the love of all that's decent, PLEASE don't be a jerk about it...
Everyone has different tastes & opinions, as do I. Also, please don't let my ratings scare you off, cause I've actually surprised myself many times when it comes to anime & manga that I thought I wouldn't like, but ended up doing so!

4 - 5 stars = Absolutely wonderful! <3 Huge favorites!
(Would personally recommend that you watch/read these at least once in your life.)

3.5 stars = Pretty great, but some minor things keep me from giving these a higher rating. Still favorites of mine, though.
(Would still highly recommend.)

3 stars = Decent - good for what it was. Watchable/readable, but may or may not forget certain parts and/or characters over time.
(Would recommend to people looking for certain genre's/themes.)

2 - 2.5 stars = Stuff that I tried to like, but just couldn't do so, for some reason or another...
Certain aspects made me kinda uncomfortable, disgusted, scared, or just plain bored. A character or 2 might've played a part in the low rating as well, but it just depends... These anime & manga's saving graces for me are either the music, animation/artwork, or the Dub/Sub. However, I most likely won't watch/read these again. Will most likely be VERY forgetable to me, depending on certain things.
(Not sure if I'd personally recommend, but I wouldn't stop you from watching/reading them.)

0.5 - 1.5 = These either MAJORLY disgusted me with the content, literally FREAKED ME OUT to the point of causing actual nightmares, or certain characters creeped me out or made me so mad that it really impeded on my enjoyment. Will NOT watch/read these again.
(Would not personally recommend, but I wouldn't stop you from watching/reading them if you so wished to. Just be warned, especially if you get triggered easily/are very sensitive to certain genre's and things.)

Not rated = Not sure how to rate it yet, or have forgotten to rate it.

Other than Slice of Life/Iyashikei, you can use this link for reference. --> https://www.anime-planet.com/users/OkamiHime95/loves/tags
I also have various lists that I've made on here of her favorite anime/manga, etc, if you're curious. (Yes, there's a lot, don't judge, Karen! >_>) Otherwise, you can just use what she's watched/read as references.

(Please read this and refer to the different sections in the bio before you ask stuff, as it'll make things easier for both parties.)

"Anime or manga?"
I love both mediums, but seeing as I'm more of a "visual" gal, and thus likes listening to the music and hearing the characters voices, I watch more anime than I read manga. Same with books and TV shows/movies; Watches more than reads lol.

"Old or new anime/manga?"
I honestly don't care, as long as they're good. (Well, my personal version of "good", since everyone's taste is different. :P )
What year they're from doesn't stop me from watching/reading it. (Unless they have tags/genre's I'm uncomfortable with, but that's another story that will be later explained further down...)

"Sub or Dub?"
Back in the day, I only used to watch anime in English Dub. However, when I discovered the Vampire Knight anime (which at the time was only in Japanese with English Subs), it gave me a newfound fascination with the Japanese language, so for awhile I watched what I mostly could in Japanese with English subs, so that I could practice learning the language.
In recent years, I watch in both, but there are certain anime's that I'll ONLY watch in Dub, or only watch in Sub, due to the voice acting. (For example, Naruto and Black Clover. I love their Dubs, but the Subbed version? Sorry, but couldn't stand them... I do like the Naruto Shippuden Sub though!)

"Long or short anime?"
When I play the anime bingo challenge in the Anime Planet forum, I prefer to go with OVA's, movies, 12-15 episode anime's, or ones with short episodes that only last a few minutes each. Otherwise, I don't really give a rip. Long episode counts don't intimidate me like it does with a lot of others...

No point in asking, since I'm not really a shipper... Therefore, I don't have any favorites either. Will respect other people's ships though, even if I may not personally agree with certain ones.

"What anime series and movies/manga's/Light Novels/anime figures do you own?"
Check out my lists on here titled "My Anime Series And Movies Collection", "My Light Novel Collection", and "My Manga Collection" to see what I have thus far. The lists are obviously works in progress, so I update them when I collect more stuff. :)
As for anime figures, I have an Itachi Uchiha figure, and hope to obtain the Uta Funko pop from Tokyo Ghoul one day.

"What are your favorite anime series/anime movies/characters/manga/Light novels/Scene(s) in *insert whatever anime*?"
I've always had trouble choosing just 1 or just a few favorites of things, so there's no point in asking cause you'll just my her brain lmao. :'D
However, I've compiled several lists on here of my favorite anime & manga. So if you're genuinely curious, take a gander at those.

"What video games have you played and what do you currently own? Favorites? Favorite genre's? Favorite console?"
*Insert "I don't think you're ready for this discussion..." meme*
But for real though, I've been exposed to them and have been play
ing them for as long as I can remember, so be prepared for long winded responses if you ask. XD
It's too hard to explain my favorite genre's of video games, since what I might consider a particular genre, someone might think the total opposite, so it's better and easier for me to answer just what I've played and own...
My first consoles were a Nintendo 64 and a Playstation 1. My first handheld console was a Gameboy Color that came with Pokemon Crystal.

"What are you currently watching/reading on here?"
For anime --> https://www.anime-planet.com/users/OkamiHime95/anime/watching
For manga --> https://www.anime-planet.com/users/OkamiHime95/manga/reading
I keep the anime one more updated than the manga one.

"What are your favorite Asian Live-Actions/Drama's/Movies?"
Again, too hard to decide on favorites, since almost all of the ones I've watched so far are my favorites lmao. If you want to know which ones, just ask. :)

"What music do you listen to? Favorite bands/singers? Favorite genre's? Ever been to a concert?"
 The answer is pretty much the same as it is for anime, Live-Actions/Drama's/Movies, and video games.
I do have a list on here of all my favorite anime OP's/ED's titled "My Favorite Anime Music" though, if you're curious. (Though that one is a work in progress too, and hasn't been updated in a long time.)
For genre's, it's better just to ask what bands/singers I listen to, since what I may consider a particular genre, someone else might think the complete opposite.
I've never been to a concert, since I have a form of sensory processing disorder that makes most noises 100x louder to me than most people's, even with ear defenders on. I almost had the opportunity to go to see Prince and Blue October when I was a kid, but chose not to due to the reason above.

"BTS bias?"
I love them all, but in saying that, I'm quite partial to Namjoon/RM/Rap Monster, Suga/Yoongi, Jungkook, and Taehyung/V. xD

"Why do you have my favorite anime/manga in your dropped/won't watch/won't read list?! And what's with those ratings?! You SUCK!!! D:<"
Well, Janice, lemme tell ya...

Reason 1: I know what I like and am comfortable with, and what I DON'T like and am NOT comfortable with. Simple as that. Yes, there are times where I try to get out of my comfort zone a little bit, but that is pretty rare, and it's even more rare for me to honestly enjoy something with tags/genre's that I'm not comfortable with.

Reason 2: Certain genre's & themes such as rape/sexual abuse, explicit sex, and Yaoi/Yuri are anxiety & PTSD triggers for me due to personal reasons, so that's another reason why I won't watch & read certain things. I have no problems with those that are into Yaoi/Yuri/GL/Shoujo-Ai and the BL/Shounen-Ai genre's themselves though. In fact, I have friends & family in the LGBTQ+ community. Plus there's actually some BL/Shounen-Ai anime that I do like, even though I don't actively seek stuff out from those genre's.

Reason 3: As embarrassing as it is to admit, I've gotten nightmares quite easily ever since I can remember. Extremely realistic ones at that, so that's another reason why I have to be careful with certain tags & things... :\ Might sound ironic, given that I love Castlevania for example, but just...don't question it, alright? ;>_>

Reason 4: I hate crying in a "negative" way, so some stuff that are in my won't watch/won't read lists contain things that I either heard/read are depressing, or I know the ending itself is depressing, so I rarely watch or read stuff like that. I know for some people, crying makes them feel better, but it does the total opposite for me and just gives me a massive headache... In saying all that, I do love Violet Evergarden for example, but for those types of shows, I HAVE to be in exactly the right mindset. So it's not like I hate those types of shows; I just hate crying... T_T 

Reason 5: As someone that's suffered from abusive relationships, I personally can't stand seeing it in anime, manga, or any other type of media. Especially if there's tons of emotional, verbal, or psychological abuse involved in the relationship(s). Seeing those kinds of things just...takes me back, y'know?

So yeah, it's fine if you like those kinds of genre's for whatever reason, but please be patient, understanding and respectful enough to not make me feel pressured into watching/reading things that I just cannot handle at all, or that I doubt I can...

I highly prefer watching anime on Hulu, Netflix, Prime Video, Pluto, and Tubi. I don't have a Funimation, nor do I have a Premium CR membership (and quite frankly I don't want to...), so keep this in mind if you try to rec me anime. Otherwise, I resort to buying physical copies when I can.
As for manga, I read and buy physical copies only.

I tend to be terrible at starting conversations due to social anxiety, but ask/talk to me about certain subjects, and I'll ramble especially the more I get comfortable with you. So if you want to help when it comes to a sure-fire conversation starter, ask me about vampires, video games, Asian Drama's/films, Japanese bands/singers, TCG & board games, or stuff that she's currently watching/reading on here for some examples. (Or HAVE watched/read. :P)

As an Autistic, it REALLY grinds my gears and saddens me whenever I see or hear someone use the "R word." (Especially since I sometimes get called that irl...) However, if you use it by accident, or you truly don't know how that word can affect people like me, then I'll politely explain and kindly ask you not to use it when speaking to me. But if you try to argue with me about it, or you use it on purpose and truly don't care how that word can be triggering, you will instantly lose my respect & trust... If you don't know the "R word" slur, well, just look it up at your own risk...

I'm not comfortable using online features in games (too hard to explain/articulate properly) and I also don't like playing online games in general. Long story short, I've been bullied too much in online games in the past, and still have trauma from it... With single player console gaming, I don't have to deal with that, therefore I'm MUCH more comfortable with console versions of games. Plus with most console games (especially older ones), you can just pop the disc/cartridge in, and play the game right then and there and don't have to wait. So yeah, it's pointless trying to convnince me into online gaming, especially with rando's...

I have a really hard time talking about why I like/dislike characters, anime, manga, or whatever. But that does NOT mean that I don't like having discussions, so please don't assume so. The only things discussion-wise that I don't like are arguements, confrontations, and "heated debates." (So there's no point in complaining or trying to argue with/be confrontational with me, because I will not engage with you if you do so.)
Also, I personally hate it when people literally pressure others into explaining why they like/dislike a character, or when they pressure someone to take certain characters off their like/dislike lists. (Which I've seen happen.) Oh, and peer-pressuring people to watch or read something that they don't want to/are not comfortable with. Now THAT really makes me angry, and is something that I've also dealt with before in the past.

While I may not personally agree with certain opinions, everyone has their own reasons for liking/disliking something.

I suck at explaining plots to stuff, so if you ask me what something is about, be prepared for either very short (albeit funny?) answers, or me giving you links to the synopsis if you're too lazy to Google them yourself. (Don't mean to sound rude, but what happened to people Googling synopsis' to stories, movies, and games and such for themselves? It's SO easy to do! >_<) 

For future reference, if I have a season of an anime on my "Won't watch" list, but don't have the 1st season marked, it's either because I forgot to mark it as won't watch, or (on the very rare happenstance) I want to see how well I'm comfortable with the 1st season, before deciding on if I'm keeping the next season in my "won't watch" or not.

Just because I say something is boring, like a certain aspect(s) about an anime episode, it does NOT always necessarily mean that I dislike the episode(s) itself, if that makes sense.

I wasn't going to write this, but due to an arguement that came about in February via someone who I thought was a friend, I feel like this needs to be said: Almost nothing p*sses me off more than someone making negative assumptions about how I handle my anxiety & diagnosis', so if you try to argue and say crap like "Well EVERYONE has anxiety!" or "Well, just don't think about it!" for example, you'll instantly lose my respect, and I will not further engage with you.

Though I'm not a part of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I have several friends, family, and followers who are, and I consider myself a huge supporter and safespace for them, as well as a safespace and supporter of people on the Autism spectrum, and those who are a part of the Neurodivergent community in general. Therefore I will not tolerate any form of racism, abuse, abelism, homophobia/transphobia, and anything else that's considered judgemental/bullying whether it be towards me, or someone else. The world needs more kindness, so let's spread more of it, alright?

I have a bad memory when it comes to remembering conversations that happened a long time ago, so I'd very much appreciate it if you reminded me of the context of your last conversation with me, if you haven't spoken to me in a long time. I also have trouble remembering names of characters that didn't have a personal impact on me, forgive me if I don't know what character(s) you're talking about. ^^;

I DON'T do "Follow for follows" because to me, that isn't true friendship, speaking from experience... (I'm not saying that true friendships don't ever happen that way, but from my own personal experience, well, I've mostly had negative experiences that way...) If I DO follow you, it's because I think we have similar personalities/your personality will mesh well with mine, and you have similar interests and seem like a genuinely nice person. Therefore, I don't follow people to become "popular" or "cool." I look for TRUE, non-superficial, non-toxic friendship. Just saying. Other reasons I may not follow you back are because I'm either busy and/or didn't see it because my alerts for follows are turned off.
I also rarely check my follower count, so if you greet me down below and state how you found me, etc, I'll be more likely to see it. Just a simple hello or how are you won't cut it though, because I highly prefer CONVERSATION (which a lot of people lack these days, or just don't want to take the time to get to know people), so if you want a sure-fire conversation starter, please refer to the FAQ above and/or just keep on reading. (Yes, this is a long read, but have patience, younglings...) This stuff is also explained further down.


 Draken from Tokyo Revengers (do NOT tell me ANY manga spoilers, cause I haven't read it yet! >:( ), and the header was found randomly online via Google Images. (Credit to the original artists.)

Section 7: LANGUAGES -
Of course my main language is English, but I've been self-studying Japanese off & on for 10+ years as a hobby. (That does NOT mean I'm an expert by any means, since a lot of life events & other hobbies have kept/keep me busy.)
Currently, I can read in Hiragana & most Katakana, but I can't read Kanji yet other than a few random symbols.
I'm not confident in my pronunciation, but I can understand some basic words in Japanese when they are spoken.

I do understand some VERY basic French, & some VERY basic Spanish, but am not confident in actually conversating in them.

I can't read Hangul/Korean writing, but understand some very basic Korean words when they're spoken.

Section 8: MY PERSONAL GOALS FOR 2022- (Will put a strikethrough on the things that got accomplished.)

Watch a total of 2022 (or at least 2000) anime's before 2023. (Almost at 1000!)

Get a service dog. (LONG story.)

Make a TRUE friend from Japan, that shares similar interests. (Mission accomplished! :D)

Obtain all the pieces of Exodia. (Have one of his legs or arms, but don't have the other cards yet.)

Make 100 true friends. (Like Komi, as someone with social anxiety, that'd be HUGE for me. And by true friends, it means people that talk to me regularly or at least semi-regularly, and the friendship doesn't become one-sided... I've dealt with enough one-sided friendships over the years where I was the only one that put effort, and quite frankly as I get older, the more tired of it I become... My goal is now 76.)

Remember and recognize at least 10 Kanji.

To complete at least one video game wishlist. (Which because of Covid, and due to a lot of the ones that I'm wanting are rare and/or tend to be pricey, well, let's just say it'll take quite awhile. ^_^;)

Watch & finish more Asian Drama's & movies from personal want to watch list. (I plan on watching the Mob Psycho 100 Live-Action when I can.)

FINALLY finish the LOTR/The Hobbit books.

 Re-read The Vampire Chronicle books I have, in honor of Anne Rice.

Get 2nd place in the anime bingo challenge here on Anime Planet, before 2023. (A hefty goal, and will most likely not be achievable, but no one says that you HAVE to do every single goal you plan for yourself, as ironic as that may sound... And if they do, screw'm and tell'm that you ain't got time for negativity! :P )

Section 9: Reasons your follows/comments/messages didn't get a response -

Because of my social anxiety, I just don't know what to say to people (especially if they're new to me) a lot of the time, plus I suck at small talk in general. It's not that I don't want to talk, but...yeah, refer to sections 1 and 5. 
Different timezones.
Am busy, sick/don't feel well, or am going through something personal and just doesn't feel up to socializing at the time.
Am eating. (Lol xD)
Working on my Japanese language self-studies.
Am out somewhere.
Didn't notice. ^^;
Am playing a game, reading, listening to music, or watching something.
So yeah, please don't be upset if response time is slow/late.

Watched/Read = The answer is obvious.
Watching/Reading = Also obvious.
Want to watch/want to read. Obvious, once again.
Stalled = Stuff that I want to watch or read, but had to put them on the "backburner" so to speak, in order to watch something less time-consuming, or they're stuff that only Premium Members of Crunchyroll can watch. (Which I am not, so...)
Dropped = I tried to watch or read it, but got uncomfortable with it for one reason or another...
Won't watch/Won't read = A lot of my reasoning has been explained in previous sections of the bio, but once again, the majority of the time it's because they have tags/genre's that are PTSD/anxiety triggers for me, or I know they have crappy endings to, thanks to other users spoiling the ending for me...


If you made it this far, I have mad respect for you, since 95% of my followers don't read my bio all the way, if at all...
If you have questions (minus "Why?" questions because those have always been hard for me to answer), please refer to the FAQ section of the bio first. I will try my best to answer them as long as they aren't judgemental or too personal. (I will let you know if something is too personal, so don't worry.)

If you'd like to recommend me stuff, then PLEASE make sure NOT to rec things that I'm already watching or have on my dropped/stalled/won't watch/won't read lists, as they're there for a reason... However, my want to watch/want to read lists are fair game. Can't promise that I'll watch/read them right away (because I have other hobbies/interests, for one thing), and I can't promise that I'll like them, but when I finally get around to them, I'll let you know. If I DON'T happen to like them for some reason, or I can't read/watch something due to it having tags that I'm not comfortable with, please don't be upset with me. There are certain genre's/themes/tags that I have to actually be careful of and/or avoid due to personal, PTSD related, & anxiety reasons.

In relation to the above, if YOU are looking for recs, then PLEASE either be as specific as possible in what you're looking for to make things much easier, or just ask what I would personally recommend, regardless of genre. Otherwise, I'm NOT confident in giving recs, especially if I'm not familiar or am uncomfortable with certain genre's/themes...

PS: If you get unfollowed, it was most likely an accident/glitch, or due to not remembering/recognizing you because you changed your username AND profile pic all of a sudden, or (in the somewhat rare case) don't remember you due to you not conversating for a long time. Either way, please don't take it personally. If it was due to the latter 2 reasons, would appreciate it if you remind me who you are, so you can get followed back again. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I might also unfollow if I personally feel like you don't like talking to me anymore and you don't want to be friends with me anymore...

PSS: Discord is a huge NOPE due to several reasons, so please stop asking and stop trying to change my mind about it. I know my own limits, and you should respect that. Chat went WAY too fast for me on there, and my experiences there were mostly negative and I got ignored a ton... Your server might be "peaceful", but I have way too much anxiety around people I don't know, especially if there is a lot. Plus I type slow, so there's that...

PSSS: If you are new to me or if you haven't spoken much with me, I'd highly appreciate it if you use "Tone Tags" during our conversations, as I have trouble understanding people's tone of voice and intent through typing/writing. If you don't know what they are, well, they're hard to explain, but you can find lists for them online.

*theirs No misunderstandings.

Excuse any typos in my other comment.

I don't have the "spoons" to rewrite it all if there are any spelling errors...

OkamiHime95 Sep 28, 2022

PSA: Due to a certain recent event, (well, technically 2) I feel like this needs to be said...

As I'm Autistic, I don't always know when someone is joking or not, especially if we haven't talked much, or not at all. It's worse for me trying to differentiate online, because I can't hear tone of voice over the internet. So if you ARE honestly joking with me and truly mean no harm, either use a tone tag, or say at the end of your sentence that you're joking, so my feelings don't potentially get hurt and their's misunderstandings. I can also take things very literally, or I struggle with deciding if I should take someone's words literally or not. So if you want me to take you literally, say so, or use a tone tag indicating you're being serious.

I had Covid back in late July, and couldn't get rid of it until August. During that time, I felt too weak to watch anime. I also had to deal with personal issues, family issues including my great-grandfather passing away, my old computer dying, as well as self-esteem and anxiety issues.

So if you want to make fun of me for not watching as much anime as I used to, (you know who you 2 are...) Say it to my damn face in a PM! Not publicly so others might make fun of me too! :( I already feel bad enough, and I already feel like a slacker, even though I shouldn't cause it was out of my control.

Anyway, for those who understand, don't worry about me. While this is aimed at 2 specific users, I still want people to know for future reference, so there's no hurt feelings.

AquamarineGem Sep 28, 2022

Thanks. I hope we keep in touch. Hurricane Ian will be coming to my area on Thursday. So if I'm not online...then I lost power from the hurricane. 

AquamarineGem Sep 25, 2022

Hello OkamiHime95,

Congratulations on your new laptop! I hope your new laptop gives you a pleasant experience. I mostly use a desktop computer at home. I'm a huge fan of all-in-one computers. I am not a heavy gamer. But I play Pokemon and Neopet games occasionally. So I pretty much only use my computer to make graphics, photoshop, and watch shows. So far I owned my Microsoft Studio 2 for a few years now. I bought it around April 25, 2020. I can draw on the screen with a tablet pen. It also has a touch screen. Graphic design is my hobby. So I love to edit photos during my free time. 

I hope the anxiety issues get better for you. It sounds stressful. I really enjoyed the movie so far. I hope you have a fun experience watching it! 

AquamarineGem Sep 25, 2022

Hello OkamiHime95, 

Hope you're doing well! I really appreciate you a lot. You're a good friend. I actually read your forum post. I can totally relate to it. Sometimes it's stressful to keep up with Discord messages especially when the Discord chats get extremely active. With the Discord bingo chat having thousands of messages daily, it might be hard to keep up. 

I hope you don't mind. To make it less stressful for you, I let the Bingo team staff know that you find it difficult to keep up with Discord messages so you prefer to use the Anime Planet forums to communicate. I hope that would make it easier and less of a burden for you. 

I read your forum post from this thread: https://www.anime-planet.com/forum/threads/latest-thought-2-2-thought-2-furious.303250/page-1542

Also, I am really enjoying the group watch movie so far. I am using this new site I found: https://animension.to/search?search_text=child+of+kamiari+ 

Animension has very little ads. So I prefer using it to watch anime. The site loads faster on my TV and computer too.
