    I've always enjoyed learning of other cultures

    folklore, myths and legends. It's why I love comics. I think it's our modern day folklore. You can learn a lot from a society based on stories they tell or told their children.

    If I were to pick 2 (cuz I can't pick 1)

    religions I really loved, it'd be Japanese and Greek. Everytime I watch Kamigami no Asobi (anime) and they say "Apollon" and "Hades" (like prounce it like Hods, not Hay-dis") I get so mad!!! And as for Japanese, it's mainly the yokai!!!
