favorite things

{ Anime & Manga }

Oh Gosh, where do I start? This is going to take a hell of a lot of time to re-write. For now just go to MyAnimeList, but I’ll mention a few of my favorites below:

薄桜鬼 Hakuouki
うたの☆プリンスさまっ♪  Uta no Prince-Sama
暁のヨナ  Yona of the Dawn
フェアリーテイル Fairy Tail
るろうに剣心 Rurouni Kenshin
犬夜叉 Inuyasha
美少女戦士セーラームーン Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon
魔法騎士レイアース Magic Knight Rayearth
ふしぎ遊戯 Fushigi Yūgi
少女革命ウテナ Revolutionary Girl Utena

{ Games }

My current Obsession is playing Fate/Grand Order which is a mobile game originally from Japan but now in the US. It’s a turn-based RPG and you can collect different servants to use in battle and craft essences to enhance their skills. Its a really fun game, so if you join be sure to add me as a friend using the code below!

Touken Ranbu (Dance of Swords). It’s a mindless game where you stack together 6 sword warriors you acquire through battles or smithing to beat up some bad guys who want to change history. If you don’t read Japanese then go to the Wiki Page — it will be your bff and teach you how to create an account, play, as well as character information on the historical sword. Trust me, it’s a lot of fun and who doesn’t love cute anime boys with amazing voices?

This is one of my personal favorites, Kogitsunemaru <3

I am a console gamer primarily (PS4 and Vita). I usually end up playing RPG’s such as Final Fantasy/Kingdom Hearts, but I love the occasional fighting game like the Samurai Warriors series. You can also find me addicted to 乙女ゲーム, or Otome games, which are more commonly known over here as visual novel games (Norn9, Amnesia Memories, Hakuouki Kyoto Winds). What can I say, I’m a hopeless romantic at heart!

{Music}

Music has always been a huge part of my life, and it’s hard to find me without headphones or music blasting around me. I enjoy so many different era’s and genre’s that there are very few things that I don’t like. I still buy CD’s and old Records, and my digital music collections is overwhelming. I *love* going to live concerts and have a habit of buying them on dvd/blu-ray (especially for my Japanese bands that I’ll likely never see in person).  So yes, when I say music = life I mean it!

{Hobbies}

I play hockey, primarily as a goaltender. I also love to spend the spring and summertime gardening in my yard (and fighting the deer who eat my plants). As for other Hobbies I play bass guitar, love to write, and enjoy create graphics.

{Books}

I am a classic lit nerd. I read ‘The Canterbury Tales’ in old english and ‘The Odyssey’ for fun. My collections also contain Manga, Young adult, and lots of reference books (I work in education). Everywhere you look in my house there are books upon books — and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
