    Wasn't Always Though

    Before I went to college, I wasn't really into anime/manga. In fact I kind of hated it. I though the shows and books were too fast paced and a little too sensory overloaded. Things changed with college and the Fruits Basket show. I fell in love! What a cute show!!! I also fell in...

    Huge Fan

    I absolutely love studying and practicing the Japanese culture, along with watching Anime and reading Manga all the time! I find it all so facinating and thought provoking, maybe one day I'll just move to Japan xD

    Everything about the Japanese culture is

    awesome! I really want to go to Japan and study Japanese. I also love anime and manga in general, and I love it! My favorite animes would probably have to be Hetalia, Attack on Titan, and Madoka Magica. :3

    You Might Be A Huge Fan, But I'm A Huger Fan

    No kidding. I've watched 568 different anime films, and i've seen each of them at least five times! I've enjoyed every one, but i thought some were cheasy. I'm obsessed with anime (and proud of it), no i think that might be an underestimate

    Pros and Cons

    I am a fan of anime, manga, and Japanese culture.   I just don't like those who will willingly label themselves as "otaku" because they watch Naruto, BLEACH, and many other overrated shows. (No offense, but the fandom has done that.)
