Yay! My prodding worked!
So, Kaiten.Sama, I'll start off with some of the typical "favorites" questions:
Favorite manga/anime characters?
Favorite type of music?
Also, how and when did you get into manga/anime in the first place?
Ok, ok, enough for now :333
hello there, nice to meet ya :]]
so im just going to assume that u watch lots of animes... what are u watching currently and in past couple of months??
and u live in maryland? i always wanted to go there cuz my bff used to live there and she tells me all these things that idk if they're true or not (oh, i live in the jersey btw)
So, favorites, huh.
Favorite manga is tough. I'd have to say Full Metal Alchemist but One Piece and 20th Century Boys are really close.
My favorite anime is Akira. I saw it a long time ago, before I was into anime, but it's still the most stunning animation I've ever seen.
Have to go with Haruhi as my favorite anime character, Risa and Ootani from Lovely Complex for manga.
Anything home cooked is my favorite food. I eat out almost every day because of work so anything that's actually healthy is a treat ^^
I've been into indie since the early '90's. I love anything weird, offbeat, obscure, or underrated. I listen to oldies too; pre - psych '60's, 60's/70's bubble gum and easy listening, BritPunk, and various weirdo's and freaks. I'm a big music fan, someday I'll restart my blog and post some of my albums. If I do, I'll put a link in my sig. Just remember, my taste is "off".
I got into anime/manga through Inuyasha on Adultswim about four years ago. I didn't mean to get into it, didn't even mean to watch in the first place, but once started I just wanted to know what happened next. When I ran out of episodes I switched to the manga. Not being able to stop at IY, I started reading other series.
Nice to meet you to, miyavisoap!! I'm currently watching FMA2, Hayate2, new episodes of Haruhi, and Hatsukoi Limited. I have Eden of the East and Cross Game on hold until Hatsukoi ends. I usually watch new series every season and rarely watch older series. Before this batch I watched ef: a Tale of Melodies, Clannad: the After Story, and Soul Eater.Originally Posted by miyavisoap
I am from Maryland. Ask anything you want about MD, I'm happy to reveal the truth

Hey Kaiten, since you live in Maryland, do you go to Otacon? And a follow-up question would probably be, if you do, who would you cosplay as?
One Piece, Haruhi, FMA, indie music.... I'm liking what I'm hearing so far.
And I can totally relate to the home-cooked meal thing. My job is the same way and I end up eating out a LOT.
are you just copying me?
Never been to a convention before. If I were to go I'd cosplay as Ed from FMA or Taikobo from Hoshin Engi.Originally Posted by [Cross
I'm a fast food connoisseur x_X I've sampled everything greasy, fried, or nasty in the capitol area. Nasty as it is, nothing beats Wendy's at 1am
ROFL!! I found Inuyasha the exact same way: watching Family Guy/Futurama/Aqua Teen. Some nights I was to lazy to go to bed or change the channel and just watched IY. After five non - consecutive episodes I was hooked, wouldn't admit it for another month, but still. Eventually I made my way to Freelance. I ended up dropping IY around chapter 518 but am still a mod and regular poster at the Freelance forum.
Good luck with the Otaku Cafe dude... =D Got my ex-section.
Anywayy, indie music huh? You definately should check out some indie stuff from Japan, there are quite a lot of underground stuff which is really good. ^^
Hey Kaiten, congrats on your promotion. I'm pretty sure you'll take good care of the Otaku Cafe. : D
(I'm awfully sorry though, since I got no question or anything prepared...just wanted to drop by and wish you best luck.)
Sorry I have Veritas fever, do you read it?
Say, care to share with us your 5 Otaku-ish habits, if you have any?
And just curious, are you still working or studying?
'Sup Kaiten! Nice to see you here! I don't have any questions, just wanted to say hi. :-P
welcome kaiten, I of course know you from the great ToC threads
Ah well, I don't know if this has been asked before but let's see:
what are your other hobbies, manga and anime aside
No real Otakuish habits IMO. I do read waaay to much manga, as soon as I finish a series I start another. I'm an (very) occasional scanlator, if that counts. I've never really tried connecting to the wider culture; fan fiction, art, cosplay, etc. Nothing against them, just haven't investigated.Originally Posted by Nami
I work full time at Borders, for international members Borders is a chain of department store size book stores. I'll be going back to school this fall for web design certification then plan on getting a bachelors in either economics or political science.
Then Miya or Miyavi it is! I did read Hatsukoi (and Ichigo 100%)! I'm a big Kawashita fan and very excited for her new series. I've watched about four episodes of Eden and Cross Game so far, both are phenomenal. I'm a big Chika Umino fan, the character design alone drew me to Eden. When I get a chance I'll def give your suggestions a chance!Originally Posted by miyavisoap
Haven't tried it.Originally Posted by ◆ T.D.A ◆
I'll take good care of it for you. Promise.Originally Posted by hatsuharupeace
If I'm thinking of the same Japanese underground as you, it can get pretty nuts. I listen to Boris, and have in the past listened to boredoms, Shonen Knife, and Melt Banana. Acid Mother Temple is good, but I only have so much tolerance for 45 min songs =P
