  1. Growing up, things like Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z were on the TV, so I suppose those would sort of count. But the first anime I watched in earnest, from start to finish, was Neon Genesis Evangelion.
  2. What are you currently reading, have read recently, or are planning to read? Right now I'm rereading the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman. I just finished The Golden Compass (the first book) and am waiting for the ebook rental from the library for The Subtle Knife. I used to enjoy these books in my pre-teen/early teen years, and it's fun having something light to read for a change The most recent set of books I've finished is the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. I was introduced to the first book thanks to an online book club I was briefly running, I enjoyed it enough to continue reading the rest! I'd like to get back into the Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons though. I finished the first two books, Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion. Now I just need to get my hands on Endymion as well as The Rise of Endymion. Sadly though, the local library doesn't have them available, so I'll need to wait until I can purchase them. And one of these days, I'll finish rereading the Dune series by Frank Herbert. Again though, the local library is missing physical copies, aside from the first book, Dune itself. Which means I'll need to purchase copies of Dune Messiah and all the rest as well. A book I've read recently that I strongly don't recommend though? Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons. I read the whole thing, amazingly, but it made me extremely uncomfortable for the majority of it. I have a word to describe it, but it's a very inappropriate word for a family friendly forum.
  3. Oh yeah, I got all focused on losing the weight and didn't even mention the things that actually matter to me this year haha. So I'm gonna try again, in no particular order: Lose 45lbs (already mentioned that) Get working again (I've been unemployed since July 2019. It's been rough, here and there, but overall everything has been fine. Slowly though, everyone is getting ready to hire people again, as we approach busier seasons in town) Save up $1000+ to put as a lump sum on my student loan, to make up for the last six months that I've been on repayment assistance. Do more creative projects and explore more in my newfound art style Bonus: Travel to some places we've been wanting to visit Get my motorcycle license The "Bonus" items are actually what we originally had planned for 2020 anyway. But due to unexpected circumstances and working towards getting back on our feet, we've decided to change gears and let 2020 be more of "focus" year to let ourselves save up some money and generally focus on some needed life improvements (we've outgrown our current place, it's time to find something better suited to our needs). More than likely, these "Bonus" items we'll shelve until 2021, when we're going to be kicking ass anyway. Right now though? It's grind time to get some much needed XP before venturing further!
  4. Hmm, I don't think I can really classify an anime as the "best anime ever." I haven't had enough exposure and I know everyone can have wildly different tastes. In my own little world though, I'd say Texhnolyze wins it for me.
  5. My favourite comedy animes would probably be Azumanga Daioh and Ben-To. I don't watch too much comedy, though, hence such a short list and they're both tied for first haha
  6. I'm pretty basic, I mainly ship in the comics I read. So for anime, I really only have Usagi x Mamoru/Sailor Moon x TuxedoMask (Sailor Moon, obviously) and Ai Tanabe x Hachirota "Hachimaki" Hoshino (from Planetes)
  7. It's been a hot minute, hasn't it? Hi!

      There’s been lots of ups and downs! But overall, good! I was feeling a bit social and decided to pop in here again haha. Who knows, maybe I’ll stick around longer this time? I never plan to vanish, I just get distracted easily :D

  8. I've never done cosplay before, but I think it would be fun to try Kaneda from Akira (mainly I just want the bike haaa)
  9. Who knows if these count or not, but they've been what we've watched lately Carole & Tuesday Castlevania Sailor Moon (finishing up Sailor Moon R) And other things that aren't anime but watched with just as much love Final Space The Dragon Prince
  10. I recently started reading Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, because it keeps coming up in conversation within my social groups. I still have yet to decide whether or not I enjoy it though.

    Horror Games

    Horror games: love em, hate em, can't get enough? I've always wanted to enjoy horror games, but they always freak me out way too much, which is a shame. Soooo, I don't really play them! I like reading horror, but so far I haven't been able to muster up the courage to actually play horror games haha. Do you have any favourite games from the horror genre? As for me, the only ones I've really even tried are Silent Hill and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The atmosphere and fog is what creeps me the heck out!!
  12. Haven't played anything yet today, but lately I've been working on a criminal mastermind in The Sims 4. He's quite a fun one to play!
  13. I checked out the pilot for Hazbin Hotel recently. It's visually pleasing, but I actually wasn't interested in it otherwise, so I doubt I would watch more of it. I might check out Helluva Boss at some point, but I'm not sure
  14. What movies have you seen recently, new or old? We most recently watched Monsters University, before that we watched Prometheus. Soon we'll watch Alien: Covenant and all of the Star Wars stuff. The last movie we saw in theatres was Joker, awhile ago now.
  15. What streaming services do you use and what are you currently watching? We've got Netflix, which is our main source of entertainment. Lately we've been watching Carole & Tuesday, Final Space, The Dragon Prince, and Castlevania, as well as some other shows here and there. I'm also waiting for the next season of Dead to Me, and I'm curious how they're going to continue in the next season of Russian Doll. We share a Disney+ account with my boyfriend's dad. We plan to continue watch The Mandalorian (we're on episode three I believe) and it's great to just throw on some old cartoons in the background. Sometime soon, we also plan to watch aaaaalllll of the Star Wars stuff. I've only seen the original six movies once and I've been wanting to watch them again. But we though it'd be fun to watch all the shows and stuff in between as well. I've browsed through Amazon Prime and even borrowed my mum's account to give Man in The High Castle a try (a lot of the filming for it was done where I live), but there's not really anything on there for us, so we gave it a pass. Aaaand, I've also been thinking about eventually getting Crunchyroll account, but that won't be for a long while yet. We have plenty of things to keep us entertained for now, as well as *ahem* other sources for our anime in the meantime haha.
  16. For 2020, I'm hoping to lose 45lbs haha! It actually won't be that difficult, I've already been a lot more active than I was for a period of time earlier in 2019.
  17. I happen to be quite a huge fan and advocate for homemade bread. It is delicious and waaaay cheaper than store bought. Plus, it's a lot of fun. I'm also quite passionate about giraffes, with an ever growing collection of various giraffe related items.
  18. Arriving soon in the mail is a new dough hook for my stand mixer, nighttime driving glasses for my boyfriend, and some silicone bread pans!

    coffee or tea

    I think I'd have to say tea. I used to enjoy some coffee every now and then (like, no more than a few times every several months), but these days I don't have any desire to touch the stuff. Even tea though, I don't drink as often lately. Buuuuut, I do have a collection of tea sets and teapots, so even though I don't drink tea "as often," I still drink it pretty regularly haha!
  20. Today we've got snow and a comfortable 0C for temperature! It's really pretty outside actually
  21. I also have an interest in things

    1. Blue Dragon

      Blue Dragon

      Things are indeed most excellent! XD

  22. Literally any game. I have such a short attention span, it becomes nearly impossible for me to commit to actually finishing a game
  23. We just very recently got a new TV, and I gotta say: WipEout looks amaaaaazing on it
  24. I tend to drink my tea black. If it's orange pekoe (which I generally strongly dislike), then I'll have a drop of almond milk in it.
