Hmm let's see...I draw anime characters, from time to time(which isn't a lot). I have gigs of images of anime and manga. I've gone to several libraries across several states(where ever I was living at the time). Whenever I had free time, I just to read whatever manga they had available. (You can get free shonen jumps or even shojo beats by visiting a local library, by finding out what they are getting rid of). I've even donated anime movies to libraries. A majority of the things I fave on DA(deviantart) are anime related. I've got posters of various anime, but I've never actually put them up on walls tho. I go to cons when I can(I've been twice now and it was the same one, Otakon). I've never cosplayed before...yet. I've tried to watched a good bit of anime since I was 11, over 10 years ago. I can say now over half the animes I've liked, I've actually finished. And a little more than half of those that i've finished I have(either on dvd or on harddrives). As for reading manga. I download manga as well as purchase manga from stores. I think I read enough pages of manga to fill several bibles jk or am I, idk. However, I don't have a large collection manga in physical form or digitally. I still have yet to memorize my favorite voice actors/actress names. I don't have a single favorite japanese voice actor/actress. I don't have a bias towards subbed or dubbed anime. I think the quality of voicing varies. There are some good Voice casting directors and there are some idiots (in the states and japan) that need to be fired lol. I'd like to see a decent adaptation of an anime or manga(y'know maybe an all asian cast if that's what the source material demands, which it usually does), produced by hollywood or japan or by anybody. Even moreso, I'd like to have a hand in something like that being made. I like asian chicks but they aren't first and only girls I go after. I love j-pop/kpop, j-rock , j-hiphop and japanese music in general. I discovered some really great music through anime. That has motivated, inspired and helped me in rough times. I don't have any japanese tattoos of any kind...for now, maybe later or never. I'm an open otaku. People find out I'm into anime, not too long after meeting me. There's some things that I really hate about anime. General anime/manga has some things wrong in it. But there's a lot of good stuff I like in it too. Because of all the positive stuff that I get from anime, I'll probably never walk away from it. It's a great escape. I don't collect figurines or make models. I write like this even when I not writing about anime. I'd like to write a script or story that gets turned into an anime or manga. Anime really is my anti-drug lol. I've connected with ppl I wouldn't have otherwise, because of anime. I'd like to see some major changes in the anime industry. I still have a great deal to learn about the industry and japanese culture. I plan on going to japan one day and when that day comes, I'd like to know, read and speak a good bit of the language. I believe I'm always going to be a animefan or otaku, even when I'm old.
