    Anime Which series grabbed you from the start?

    Oh jeez... you're making me think now. Well one anime that grabbed me and just kept me glued to it from start to finish is definitely Fullmetal Alchemist. It was something unique I had never seen before and the plot line and animation were just supurb.

    Anime Cosplay?

    I cosplay all the time, and really pay no mind to people who think I am lame because of it... Usually my costumes are not that expensive simply because I can't sew(well not well) and most of my things are thift shop throw togethers that I alter. Like my latest costume, Eclair from Kiddy Grade, I bought a red dress, cut it to size, replaced the sleeves and added gold trim.... Which is pretty much the most I have done for any of my costumes. As for how long I've been cosplaying and the number of costumes I have done... well let me see here... I have been cosplaying for about six years and have...well six costumes under my belt. So far they are as follows: Rika - Digimon Season 3 Trowa - Gundam Wing Seguchi Tohma - Gravitation Kuronue - Yu Yu Hakusho: Poltergiest Report Edward Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist(I comissioned this one) Eclair - Kiddy Grade I think that's about it really... I might put a picture or two up of my better ones later.

    Anime What are You Watching/Reading Now?

    Right now I am reading the Black Cat manga... I'm on Volume one still but am fast approaching volume two. It's so amuzing, I just love it.

    Anime Black Cat

    I had no idea where to find... or even about the directory. ;_; I seem to think I am doing well, but I feel like such a n00b. I tried DESPERATELY to find the Black Cat Manga today... but... they had everything but volume one! :animecry: It ruined my whole day(I am over exhagerating of course). I will however buy it and have the anime and the mange just because I read a preview for the manga once and it looked amazing. So I really, really want it soon.

    Manga Favorite Shounen-Ai/Yaoi Titles

    I found the art in Junjo Romantica a little hard to look at but over all found the series amuzing... However the writer and our resident seme did scream YUKI! to me when I first saw him :animeswea

    [quote name='Dagger']Ahaha, indeed. Rest assured that you have company. I caved a few months ago. By then I had decided that I'd stop caring about Gravi's quality--if I enjoy it, then I enjoy it, and there's nothing I can really do about that. At least it still makes me laugh. :animeswea ~Dagger~[/QUOTE] Yeah, I think I am going to have to be the same way as well. I don't like how whiny Yuki is, but over all it still makes me laugh and I am still a large Shuichi fan. I have come to enjoy it and there's nothing wrong with that in the long haul.

    Anime Black Cat

    For the life of me I searched and I searched in here, but there's no Black Cat thread. I suppose it must not have picked up much speed then. However if there are any fans out there I am hoping we can have a fun and light hearted discussion about it. Personally, I just got this series, well the Anime that is. My friend gave it to me as a birthday gift at the convention we were just at. I must say, I have become quite a fan of it, and even more specifically, quite a fan of Train. However, I might get shot for that, just because EVERYONE seems to be a fan of Train. It's the personality I think, he can be dark and brooding, but fun loving too... I'm not sure if he's multidimentional, but it's enough for me to like him. That and he really doesn't have a very hard character design to look at... Cute for ink on paper if you know what I mean. Lol. So far I am up to only the third DVD, just made it past a really cute and silly scene in Episode 11. I won't give spoilers for those who have seen it, but Train fans are bound to like it. So, I suppose that's all I can put for now, if any one else would like to contribute to the topic that would be awesome, I want to see if there are anymore fans out there.[COLOR="goldenrod"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][INDENT][SIZE="2"][B]ShinigamiNoMiko[/B], that's why we have an [URL="http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=38208"][U]Official Thread Directory[/U][/URL] so next time just check it first before starting a series specific thread. Thanks. ^_~ Aaryanna[/SIZE][/INDENT][/FONT][/COLOR]

    Anime What are You Watching/Reading Now?

    Right now I am watching the Black Cat TV series. My friend recently bought me the whole set at Anime Evolution and I just can't stop popping them in the DVD player :animeswea I have become just a little bit addicted and quite the Train fan. As for what I am reading... Well it SHOULD be Black Cat, but sadly no store I went to today had volume 1. :animecry: So... I sunk to a horrible low and did something I vowed I would NEVER do... I bought Gravitation EX >< The saddest part... there are some things I really hate about it, but for the most part, I'm enjoying it >

    So... how interesting is your life? ^_^

    I work, I eat, and I sleep... and that pretty much feels like all I do anymore. Lately my life has been a little more interesting because I have been working on some cosplays... other than that though it's really boring and dry. I don't even draw as much as I would like to anymore.

    FAKE and Hero Heel are topping my lists right now. Interesting note about Little Butterfly too. I had no idea they were aged up. Actually they kinda looked like they were in High school so I am surprised to find out they were supposed to be in Middle School in the original version.

    Anime What kind of Anime do you prefer?

    I am a huge fan of fantasy/romance anime. Yes, yes I am a helpless romantic sucker... sap, whatever you want to call it. A good comedy is nice too though. My prefferences seems a little hard to believe though since my two favourite anime right now are Fullmetal Alchemist and Yu Yu Hakusho. :animeswea

    What are your interests/hobbies?

    My hobbies, I do not know of these hobbies of which you speak. :rotflmao: No I work a lot not so I rarely have time to indulge in my hobbies anymore... however they did/do include: drawing, writing, RPing, sitting on the internet :animeswea , and when I ever get it tuned and get lessons going again... playing the violin.

    Otaku is NOT a good self proclamation!

    That might be true in Japan, but are most of us on here Japanese OR living in Japan? No, no we're not. The fact you can take a foreign word and give it your own meaning. There are two definitions for otaku now and two kinds of people who use them. There are some anime fans who stay absolutely ridgidly true to the Japanese meaning and use otaku as an insult. Then there are fans who will proudly stand up and shout. "I am otaku!" Why? Because these fans have just lightened the menaing for themselves. They're saying they're passionate about what they love. It's not that they're obessed, it's just something easier then, "Hi, I am so and so and I am REALLY, REALLY into anime/gaming/ whatever." Just lighten up and roll with it.

    Anime How did YOU start watching anime?

    I think I saw pokemon first... I can't really remember. All I know is that I got into that a little, but like with Sailor Moon when I was 8, had NO idea it was from Japan or known as anime. I think I really got questioning it when I started Watching Digimon, and REALLY got into it and started drawing it and doing cosplays when I got into Gundam Wing. Basically, Gundam Wing was the anime that turned me from a casual watcher to a "hard core" fan:catgirl:
