I've loved anime and manga since I discovered them, and I haven't looked back since. My favorite anime/manga of all time is One Piece and yes, I mean that wholeheartedly. No, I will not apologize nor debate otherwise :) <3
Also... at the end of the day anime/manga is FICTION and for any weirdos who send people death threats or any of that kind of shit... SEEK HELP!!! And for any of you who use the "fiction" excuse to justify being attracted to lolis or the "sHe'S aCtUaLlY a 2,876 yEaR-oLd GoD" also SEEK HELP. Lastly, anybody who actually thinks that having poc characters in anime/manga shouldn't be "allowed" and they "take away the escapism that anime provides" should touch grass and are dumb as fuck. :D
If you lurk on my page for long enough you will see that I have many questionable fictional men that I simp over... yes, yes, I know...
Anyways, for anybody actually reading this take care of yourself and be safe in these dangerous times... and for god's sake don't be fucking weird. We're already weird enough for liking anime/manga, don't be a racist/pedo/believe fiction = reality/etc.
