Anime And Nerd Life...

I saw an older topic on just anime, but i want to know what other nerdy things you ladies are into.

Anime isn't for everyone, and lots of people don't give a hoot about eastern comics. I was raised on Magic the Gathering and Black Canary comics (and then Batman) myself but I carry a love for comics of any kind and frequently get stuck in the graphic novel section of a book store, or can be found buried up to my eyeballs in an art book or video-game design book. I love seeing how the raw ideas become a full fledged game character.

Do you go to conventions? Who are your favorite superheros? Are you a person who recently found a love of comics and cartoons and want suggestions?

Are you "normal" and don't get what we see in these things? ( I use the term loosely and in a non-sarcastic & non-derogatory manner)

I love anime but, I have preferences to which animes and/or manga that I enjoy over others. I went to my first anime convention back in 2010 and I had bought so much merchandise. My friend, that came with me, was extremely embarrassed over how much we ended up buying but I was the least bit ashamed. I am a bit of a fanatic when it comes to buying anime/manga/game related items. I just get so excited.

I'm so careful with money, but every Sunday at a convention I can feel the sale-crazy coming on. @_@

Back in high school I made a few friends who were REALLY into anime, at the time I kept pronouncing the word as "Aneam" until I was THOROUGHLY corrected repeatedly, until I got it right. Ever since then I had been following Bleach (until now WHY IS IT OVERR???) Naruto, inuyasha and all the stuff that was easily translated to american broadcasting on stations such as YTV (Canada) and soon in later years, the cartoon network/adult swim. Up until my first year of college I started getting into ANY anime possible, I mean I was on the HUNT for new stuff.

I can't exactly remember on the top of my head of what I've watched, but I generally watch ANYTHING with Tags such as: Slice of life, comedy, delinquents, yakuza, gender bender, reverse harem, harem, psychological, horror, ghosts, yuri, yaoi, shounen ai and a combination of generally all of them. Now I'm just sort of waiting for new anime to pop up, I had a few favorites that for someone reason just stopped. I'm not one to go and find the reason, I'm more for the "watching and story aspect" of all things anime. I don't read Manga, I'm not that much into reading comics either, but I WILL collect them solely for the artwork. I am an illustrator so I like to also look at concept artwork for various numbers of reasons.

I have never been to a convention, firstly because I don't think I would have the patience for it. I mean I LOVE to dress up for halloween and scare the socks out of kids, going to a halloween convention......maybe. But to dress up for any other reason, not so much. It's the line up's with a mix of the crowds that I don't have the patience for. But then again that's something to be expected in just about any social phenomena....so that's one fault of mine.

But yes.....I love anime and I NEED TO FIND SOME MORE to consume what little time I have to watch it.

Used to watch anime, I've slipped away from that now though. I play a lot of tabletop RPGs though - D&D and the like.

i remember how i used to laugh at the idea of people scheduling classes around their favorite soap operas. then when i started college again, i realized that i was doing the same thing except with animaniacs, chip and dale's rescue rangers and tiny toons.

I am a full fledged nerd and damn proud of it! I love anime and watch at least an hour a day. I'm also heavily into books of all kinds and try to read at least one novel a month. I haven't been to any conventions yet but one day I will go and cosplay with the best. I also enjoy gaming when I can regardless of the format but I definitely prefer console RPGs. I write the occasional fanfic and spend so much time listening to seemingly obscure music genres that I'm accused of being un-american. I also craft and do other nerdy hands on type things. Most people don't even try to understand but I don't care, I am who I am and the cool people love it.

I will pretty much give any anime a chance. Lately I've been watching Blue Exorcist which is actually pretty good.

I have yet gone to a anime convention yet but I am going to a comic con for the first time next weekend :D

I consume anime. My tv/video watching is sporadic at best, but when I do press play, I tend to binge watch. I've just finished Tokyo Ghoul and Noragami on Funimation. Last night I wrapped up RWBY on the Rooster Teeth YouTube channel.

I never got into graphic novels. By the time I was aware of their existence, I was totally uninterested. I did cut my teeth, though, on superman and X-Men comics. I was reading Heavy Metal at a very inappropriate age. Luckily for me, my parents didn't believe in censorship. I'm a heavy sci fi/fantasy reader. I love Brian Lumley. His Necroscope series and Titus crow trilogy are all time favorites of mine. All things Brandon Sanderson... His world building and especially his magic systems are absolutely fascinating. I can't even begin to describe them. You have to find out for yourself. Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time Series is my new epic. The Deeds of Paksenarreon trilogy by Elizabeth Moon will take you through all kinds of emotions but you will love it forever.

Lately I've been playing mmorpg's like Destiny. 

And to solidify my membership in the world of nerds, I watch Nova, Cosmos, and Ancient Aliens. Lol

I wouldn't be me without Anime and Manga. I love it, and some of my top favorites are Attack on Titan, Mirai Nikki, Yugioh, Tokyo Ghoul, Black Butler, and Naruto Shippuden. Romancy type Animes aren't really my thing though but I do love the Anime "Say I love you".
