1. Name: Natasmai

2. Age: 16

3. How long have you been an anime fan?

Let's see... I was a huge fan of Sailor Moon from Grade one to six but that wasn't anime fan. It was just Sailor Moon fan so I guess it doesn't count. I was also obsessed with Dragonball in grade five and six which introduced me to the edge of the anime world. Just the edge. Then I went to highschool and met a true otaku who introduced me to the REAL world of anime, and I was a fan since then. Therefore, around 5 years.

4. What is your favorite anime?

I have a few anime/manga series that I really love and continue to love even after I've read them such as Please Save My Earth, RahXephon, Gundam SEED / Gundam SEED Destiny, Angel Sanctuary, Wolf's Rain, Haibane Renmei, and Eternal Sabbath. I can't really pick a favorite from them because I love them all equally.

I also have series I really like while reading/watching them but know that the fangirling will die down as soon as I finish. These include Saiunkoku Monogatari and Trinity Blood.

5. Who is your favorite anime character?

My current favorite anime character is Abel Nightroad from Trinity Blood because he has really beautiful flowing white hair and I love his (sort-of) character song called Kresnik. And of course, I can't help loving his angsty-but-I-will-hide-my-sorrow personality. He is really someone you can depend on and cry for you. I find that he is a really well elaborated and planned character because his emotions feel so real that you start feeling them too. Come on, you just can't resist a character like that!

6. How large is your anime collection? Please list the anime in your collection (post pictures if possible)

Behold, my manga/anime collection: Part 1

Well, since I don't know if anime on the computer is included, I will post it anyways just in case. :D

(Confession: I have a 1 Gb limit on my monthly bandwidth, so all the anime downloaded was given to me by friends after I hinted to them that there was a er... new anime that I liked *wink wink*. XD)



7. Where do you get most of your anime?

Well, I get my anime from everywhere. My father goes back to China a lot on business trips, so I give him a long list of anime/manga I want XD. I get a lot from there, and I get a lot from caring friends who know of my low bandwidth limit and feel pity for me. I also buy a few from the few dollars I find under couches and on the street. ;p

8. Subs or dubs?

I prefer subs because I tend to like the voice actors a lot better, but it also gives me a chance to learn Japanese. I don't hate dubs though and will watch them on YTV (Canadian channel) willingly if I don't already have the sub.

9. How large is your manga collection? Please also list the manga in your collection (post pictures if possible)

(Manga included in Anime pictures)
Erm ;___; I will just post all the manga I own both on the computer (or on CDs or DVDs) and in real life (XD) because I already have a list of both together and separating them will take too long. If I need to specify, please tell me.

(If you don't feel like counting, that's around 250 series.)

10. Where do you get most of your manga?

I go on mIRC and I download... a lot. I usually pass my poor 1 Gb limit by at least another 7 Gb. XD I also buy a lot from China (the country, you know, the one that looks like a big chicken) and Chapters (the Canadian bookstore).

11. Do you prefer manga or anime?

Whichever came first in a series. I tend to prefer manga more because series are usually first a manga and then an anime. I find that when they do the conversion, a lot of goodness inside is lost. (And besides, I watch a lot less anime because of that dumb-dumb bandwidth limit.)

12. Do you own any anime soundtracks?

Yes, but not a lot. I am a real stickler for music and will love anything orchestral to death. I usually just download the songs separately and so I miss some.

1. Juuni Kokki Image OST Juuni Genmuemaki
2. Juuni Kokki OST
3. Trinity Blood OST

13. Do you have any anime posters in your room? (Post a picture if possible)

Yes, and I should have more since I still have a lot of white space, but my father is really against sticking things on walls and so we had a little agreement that if I don't stick anymore up, he won't rip the ones already up down (which makes me really sad because they were old obsessions.)

Wall 2


14. Do you speak any Japanese?

Not really. I'm currently learning and I'm even getting taught by a Japanese otaku so I can understand enough to be able to watch raw anime and not get confused unless it's Evangelion, but I can't speak at all because verbs are just way to complicated for me to conjugate. They're even harder than French verbs! Now that's something.

15. Have you ever been to Japan?

Ah hahahaha. That questions makes me want to cry. My family is really Chinese and really traditional/old-fashioned, and being a very traditional Chinese family basically mean a really big passionate Japan-hater. (Long story. Conflits during Second World War. You know.) I've had SO many opportunities to go back, so many I want to scream, but I wasn't allowed to because I should be on the Chinese's side, or so says Mom and Dad. -_____-' This year I'm going back to China again and I've succeeded in convincing that Air Japan is a really cheap choice and it doesn't really matter if we have to wait in Tokyo for a whole day because you know...gotta save all that money for the real fun... It's important to learn the culture of the enemy! *cough*

16. Do you cosplay? (post pictures if possible)

Yes, and it really makes my family angry! Hey, what can I say, I'm in the middle of my rebellious years.

Unfortunately, I'm usually too busy taking pictures of other cosplayers, so I only have a few of myself.





17. Are you in an anime club?

Yes. I run it too! It's been three years, and we currently have 45 members! (We had 20 last year o.O) We meet for 1 hour and a 30 after school on Fridays. I'm so proud of my little dedicated fans XD. It's getting kind of hard to think up new activities though, so we're always only watching anime. Oh well.

18. Have you ever been to an anime convention? Which one?

I've been to Otakuthon (a new convention in Montreal), AC3 (in Ottawa), and Otakon (in Baltimore) (all last year). I really enjoyed the experience and it felt weird when I came back to Montreal because no one was...talking about anime. I truly belonged in those conventions and I felt so sad when I left.

19. Have you ever seen an anime in the movie theatre?

Nope. I was going to see Ghost in a Shell - Innocence but after seeing the glare of my mother, I decided that I was going to ask a friend to download it for me instead.

20. How would you describe your anime fandom? (What type of fan are you?)

Well, I guess my fandom is ever changing. I used to be obsessed with pure shoujo, but then I found that all the stories were similar and I knew exactly what was going to happen. Now, I'm into psychological stories like Haibane Renmei or Evangelion where the story itself may be something while meaning something else. I find that the characters are also more developped and it's just more fun to read/watch. I'm going to stop now before starting to fangirl about how great the ending to Haibane Renmei was.

I will basically read anything. I usually go on IRC and download the first series I see. If it's bad, I get disappointed and that's the end of it. If it's good on the other hand, my friends get to suffer through a whole week or two of pure torture while listening to me fangirl.

Extra credit: Promote to another community and post link:

I gotta say that the best community I've been to so far is clamp_rants because they can sure rant. Like, seriously rant. I myself have never been able to because by the time I start writing, I'm not angry anymore. I completely agree with all of their opinions, and they're backed up impressively. I have tried to find a flaw in some of them, and it's nearly impossible. Haha, I would LOVE to get in a fight with them. XD
