Fave anime: Kare Kano
Fave manga: Paradise Kiss
Bio: Jessica was first introduced to anime at a young age when her family rented "My Neighbor Totoro." However, her real fandom didn't begin until Tiffany introduced Escaflowne to her in 2001. She enjoys cosplay, and won the hall costuming contest at InCon for her Karna costume. Jessica most identifies with Yukino Miyazawa from Kare Kano, because she's a real perfectionist at school. And the anime male she drools over the most is Aburatsubo from Magic User's Club, even though he's VERY gay. She was vice-president of her high school anime club.
Fave anime(s): Bleach, FMA, Escaflowne, Chrno Crusade
Fave manga(s): Rave Master, Dazzle, Angel Sanctuary, Flowers of Deep Sleep
Bio: Anna has been interested in anime ever since Pokémon hit Kid's WB. Since then, she has evolved into a well-rounded fan. So far, she has only done two cosplays--the first as Elie from Rave Master and the second as Yuuki from Flowers of Deep Sleep. Anna spends much time making anime-based icons, as well as a handful of layouts and wallpapers. She has also been known to dabble in the art of fanfiction. The anime character she identifies most with is Rosette from Chrno Crusade--as they both have the loud and fiery personality, while trying to hide a frown under a smile. She finds too many anime guys drool-worthy to even begin naming them.
Fave anime: Gundam SEED (Destiny)
Fave manga: Hana-Kimi
Bio: Leanne was first introduced to anime with Sailor Moon when she was younger, but she didn't know what anime was until 2000, when she was introduced to a plethora of anime when she moved to the state in which she currently resides. As the years went on, her fandom grew. She has attended the Animazement convention in Durham, NC, for the past four years. She most identifies with Takiko from Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden in that she wants to help people and she's fairly ambitious. The anime male she most drools over is (well manga) Izumi Sano from Hana-Kimi (need more be said? ~.^). She's very excited about taking Japanese in the coming semesters.
