    Not so much into anime anymore, but I still have room in my heart for some; Sailor Moon, Ranma 1/2, GTO, Death Note (manga only), Kare Kano, Kodocha, FMA, and some others.<br /><br />I like playing video games, but I wouldn't really consider myself to be a gamer. I enjoy them more playing with friends than solo, but ironically my favorite game is Chrono Trigger (if that's not obvious enough already).<br /><br />I'm also very much into Jrock and my favorite band is L'Arc~en~Ciel. I also enjoy Siam Shade, Binecks, X Japan, Luna Sea, B'z, Sads, and various other bands I can't think of right now. Lol.<br /><br />I also enjoy watching Jdramas, my favorites of all time being GTO and Stand Up.

  1. wow I just have to say you are the only other person I have seen on here who actually likes ranma that is and will always be my favorite I just wanted to say that's cool ^_^

  2. I'm hoping to attend this year. I haven't been to Otakon since 2007 and I've found myself missing the con experience. I think the small crowd will be good for me too. Otakon is the only anime con I've ever been to, so this will be a new experience for me....hoping it works out that I can go.
  3. Oh sweet! You got a pic of my bf! =D http://photos.animejutsu.com/tools/a.php?a=20713 Cain from FFIV
  4. Rules will appear eventually, but I'd say that the *audience* is likely to fall asleep long before you hit six minutes.....
  5. Is it safe to assume that the AMV still has to be under 6 minutes? >.>
  6. How so? I'm curious. I saw the TV Drama almost when it aired in Japan as I had anticipated it for quite a long time. I love the TV Drama, but not because it was necessarily good, but because it was a good alternate perspective. The issue with the TV Drama was that by showing the new perspective, they forgot the old perspective. They portray Seita was portrayed to be a hard-headed brat that didn't care about the rest of the world. All he cared about was his little sister. The sister was portrayed as even more ignorant and stupid, she had no sense of anything at all except following
  7. Since I couldn't make it to Otakon this year, I'm hoping to make it to Katsucon. This would be my first year attending. I have a friend in VA that lives in the general area, so I can stay at her house rather than a hotel, and we could probably take the metro or drive in. If we take the metro that'll save us on parking/gas. ^^ So we'll see what happens. I don't think I'll cosplay though. If I do, I'll probably just throw together my gothic lolita costume that I wore to Otakon in 2007.
  8. I do quite enjoy my Asian movies and Jdramas. <3 My all time favorite Jdramas are GTO and Stand Up. I just started watching My Boss, My Hero, and it's decent so far, but not one of my favs. As for movies, I watch a lot of Asian horrors. I have seen some really lame ones, but there are a lot of great ones too. I wish Hollywood would stop remaking them and just show the originals, but I think the majority of the American audience wouldn't want to see them for various reasons. *sigh* Oh well. Favorite horror: Ringu Ju-on Shutter (Thailand) Alone (Thailand) Tale of Two Sister
  9. Financial woes is exactly the reason I couldn't make it to Otakon this year. >_< I'm around $2500 in debt, but it's mostly due to medical expenses. And I was thinking I could go to Otakon, as I had some savings, and then BAM I found out from my previous landlord that his mortgage company was threatening foreclosure because he was a few months behind in payments. So I had to move suddenly and used the savings I did have towards the deposit on the new place. I'm doing okay financially now, but I still have that credit card debt. Every time I start to make some headway on it, some
  10. I haven't used Rinkya, but I've used Japamart.com several times, which provides the same type of service. I've never had any issues with them. And last I checked, their commission fee is lower than Rinkya's too.
  11. All I can say is, I hope justice will be served.
  12. I actually watched the live action movie first. I thought it was interesting and decided to check out the manga. I finished the manga before watching the anime. I only watched...maybe 12 episodes of the anime? It seemed to follow the manga pretty close, but for some reason I couldn't get into the anime that much. However, I could not put the manga down. I was hooked the entire way. But then again, I seem more likely to read manga than to watch anime nowadays. It's funny because I used to watch anime all the time in high school, but was never interested in reading manga. o_O Anime an
  13. Seeing how I live on my own, pay rent and my own bills, I'd rather have the hotel rate be lower. I know there are Otakon goers who are in the same situation as me, but I think the majority of the con attendees are high school or college students. Without the expenses of having to be completely financially independent, they can save money much easier for a hotel. Most hotels give you plenty of time to cancel in advance without being charged a penalty fee. So even if you book the room(s), it gives you plenty of time to sort things out with friends.
