Enter Sunagan, 29 years old, passionate about anime, tv series, movies, books, Dungeons and Dragons, tabletop games, cooking, travelling, classical music, languages, culture, philosophy and last but not least psychology. I obtained a master's degree in clinical health psychology six years ago. I worked several relevant (as a psychologist) and semirelevant (as a tutor or coach) jobs after that. For the past few years I have been working and studying hard to become a cognitive behavioral therapist and I am about three quarters into reaching that goal. I met my boyfriend Omurqi (sweet, intelligent, easy-going, funny) on this very website in 2010 and we have been a happy couple ever since. We got engaged a few months ago and we are planning a fabulous wedding. He has landed his dream job of IT security specialist last year and he is thrilled about working with a highly motivated (and also playful) team. In short, we are both very happy with the way things are turning out ;-)!
I used to be a fairly hopeless anime addict in the past, but the times of watching 15 episodes a day are now over. The best I can do nowadays is keeping up with airing shows that interest me. What can I say, life's gotten busier and my beloved Netflix is also constantly vying for my free time. As you probably guessed, I plead guilty to frequent bingewatching... What else about me, huh? I'm openminded, interested in a lot of different things and I like to talk about philosophical issues, although I'm also pretty capable of embarrassing myself laughing my ass off xD. I'm someone who likes observing and analyzing, I'm passive, essentially a dreamer. Also, I've had my fair share of trouble in life in the past, but right now I'm happy and in love, not taking life too seriously.
Moving on to my love for anime. I guess my liking of anime could be predicted in a certain way. I'm someone who needs to have addictions in order to enjoy life; in my case these addictions are storytelling, -reading and watching, shortly, the media that provide me with them; books, tv, music, games and anime. Some series are primarily good because of the plot or the humor, others because of the character chemistry, passing on certain ideas or creating a particular atmosphere. Some series give me the satisfaction of emotional or intellectual challenges, but they are not necessairy to enjoy a show.
Things I really enjoy in anime are:
Things I like less in anime are randomness, boring archetypes and predictability. Also, it's a pity that the core demographic for anime series is usually teens. Lately, I have found myself to have sorely outgrown most stories about middle schoolers or highschoolers T_T. I tend to like mature and different anime most, although I do have a soft spot for shounen and I do indulge in meaningless drivel every once in a while ^^.
Check out the series I liked most by looking at my custom list :-)!
