    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...

    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.)

    So, I've only been truly introduced to Manga and Anime this past year and a half or so. So far I've become an avid fan of these: 1. Naruto 2. Bleach 3. Full Metal Alchemist The reason I've become such an easy fan of these is that I've really gotten into the storyline. It's not...

    Yay Yay And Yay

    Anime and Manga are a big part of my life and I will never give it up. Some are funny and I love the hair. They also get awesome powers sometimes. Japenese is a cool language to learn and theyre the ones who actually came up with anime and manga. So awesome.

    Nice Niche

    Manga just opens up a new refreshing way of things for me. Outlandish ******* plot setups (like My Balls where a demon queen is trapped inside a mans sack and if he ********** humanity ends!) I love all the character types, & its one of the few mediums were I'll admit to liking...

    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
