Favorite series/movies? (minimum - 5, maximum - 10) (Explaining why may help us in the decision making process)
Gensomaden Saiyuki: Saiyuki is my all time favorite, I've been a fan of it for almost 2 years now and I love a lot of other works by Kazuya Minekura but thats not the point right? I like the plot and the anime is funny, the art in the manga is awesome and I love the characters like whoa.
Bleach: I love Bleach, but when I first started reading Bleach I really didn't like it, but I gave it another chance and now its my favorite manga and second favorite anime. I really like the characters, the plot is good, but I like that fact that they get right to the action most of them time instead of giving us 50+ filler episodes and what not. Hitsugaya is my favorite characters and Hanatarou is adorable. x3
Peacemaker Kurogane: Peacemaker is love, I liked it right away even though my friends showed me episode 5 before 1-4 but even so, right after I went out and bought DVD 1. I love the fights, they always make me want to scream at the screen, which I do anyway. The characters are awesome and the plot is good and even though I've finished the anime it will always have a place in my heart.
FullMetal Alchemist: I watched FMA before it came on Adult Swim! Well not that far ahead though, I went out and bought the bootleg DVDs a month or two before it came on AS, but still! FMA had a amazing plot and the characters are cool and the Movie was awesome. Envy is my favorite character, he's hot seck. <3
Honey & Clover: Honey & Clover makes me laugh like theirs no tomorrow, but it also has its emotional moments. I love it because the characters go through real life problems and I can understand the way the feel, and I find that so awesome. I like all the characters but I'd have to say that Ayu is my favorite, I want to have her children. (Yes I am a girl xD)
Gravitation: Gravitation owns me, the anime's ending sucks in my opinion though. The music is really good, the characters are fun, the plot is alright. I like the manga and the remixes a lot more then I liked the anime but I still liked it none the less. And can I just say the dub sucked ass... .__.
Chrno Crusade: Chrno Crusade made me cry so much, through the last 6 episodes I couldn't stop sobbing like a baby. The beginning was fun and crazy and I liked that they gave us some happy stuff before all the sad. I adore the characters and I liked the dub with a exception of Rosette's voice but after a while I got used to it.
Least Favorite series/movie? Mirage or Blaze. Worst shounen-ai ever. D: I still can't believe I sat through that boring anime, it was confusing and boring. The characters were alright but that still didn't make up for all the bad areas.
Favorite scene/s from an anime (if you think there's a spoiler, name the anime, and then type the description afterwards in a white font)?
Chrno Crusade: [spoilers for the ending] The ending when Chrno and Rosette are sitting on the bench as the sun is going down. Then when the sun finally sets Rosette's time clock runs out and they both die smiling and holding hands. ;___; I've never cried so much, it still makes me cry even now.
Favorite genre of anime? I like just about anything, I can sit through a lot, even like really boring anime like Tactics or Mirage of Blaze. Though I tend to like a lot of action and yaoi/shounen-ai.
Favorite anime soundtrack? I don't own any soundtracks but I like a lot of the Bleach, Hunter x Hunter Wolf's Rain and Gravitation music.
What was it that got you hooked on anime? Sailor Moon and Card Captor Sakura, yay for magical girl anime! But after that I got into Dragon Ball, Pokemon and Gundam Wing.
Do you draw or write fan-fic? I used to write fanfictions but I got lazy and never finished any of them... xD I still write them but never post them because I think I suck. And my drawing skills are alright, but not good enough to post, I just like to sketch random people.
Would you consider yourself an Otaku? Yes, in many different ways and colors. I love anime to death, and I have no clue what I would be doing today if I didn't like anime or even knew what it was. Ew, I'd be normal, D: but I love spending my time with anime and manga and stuff. Life would be so boring with out it. ;__;
Do you read Manga (or anything similar)? If so, what series is your favorite? I love manga. Some of my favorites are, Bleach, Gravitation, Hana Kimi, D.N.Angel, Paradise Kiss, Full Moon wo Sagashite, Sequence, Host Club, Hunter x Hunter, Black Cat, and Fire Candy. Theirs a lot more but I can't think of anymore at the moment.
Do you attend anime(ish) conventions? If so, have you ever Cos-played? Yes I have. (My friend who posted her application has the same pictures though because we like to cosplay together xD)
I'm on the right as Goku from Saiyuki, and my friend is Gojyo.
From left to right is my friend Jenna as Misa, Paisley as Raito and Me as L, though it was the end of the day and me and Paisley we like rolling on the floor for no reason. xD
I'm also cosplaying Hitsugaya and Hanatarou from Bleach, Fai from Tsubasa Chronicle and Taira from Beck next year at Anime Expo.
Do you own any cool anime-based stuff? I Do. *posts pictures*
How'd you hear about our community? From my friend.
Subbed or dubbed(English)? Both, I like any anime, dubbed or not and not all dubs are bad. I do hate some dubs but like I said not all of them are bad.
For one day, and one day only, Non-Ugly Anime has granted you the power to become an anime character. Who are you? Ayumi Yamada from Honey & Clover, I love her personality and I love her in general.
Series you are trying to finish right now? Uhh... I don't think I have any DVDs right now, but Manga wise I want to catch up on D.N.Angel, Black Cat, Hunter x Hunter, Tsubasa Chronicle, and Tramps Like Us.
Series that you keep coming back to? Beck, Tsubasa Chronicle, Aishiteru ze Baby, D.N.Angel and Naruto and a few others that I can't think of.
Why do you enjoy anime as opposed to other types of "shows"? Anime gives me a escape from reality, I don't like my school I have very few friends and my family is way less the perfect, so it keeps my mind off the bad things. Don't get me wrong though I love lots of other shows that come on TV, I spend a lot of my time watching TV but anime is just more fun.
If you could take any anime male/female to bed with you for one night, who would it be? Tatsuha Uesugi from Gravitation... God, I want him in my pants. D:
Do you watch AMVs? If so, which one is your favorite? The one my friend made, it was called "I Wanna Sex You Up." and it was a video dedicated to Morita from Honey & Clover xD it was so funny.
Do you approve of all the anime that is being brought to Cartoon Network? Why or why not? I don't. I don't like the fact that they have to cut so much out, I wouldn't mind if they showed Naruto on Adult Swim as much as I mind it being on Toonami, I still don't like it though. I do appreciate it though, I mean with out anime coming on TV I probably wouldn't be into anime now.
Anything you would like to say to prove that you're actually an anime fan, or something to make you stand out to us as far as anime is concerned? Also, what will you bring to this community if accepted? I don't really know... xD I know a lot about voice actors, and I remember a lot of random facts about different anime characters and the anime it self so I guess I know a lot of information yes?
I can bring icons and other graphic related things, I live for photoshop and I think I'm pretty good with my graphics yes yes. :D
Please post at least 3 pictures of yourself, and a 100x100 incase you get accepted. No links please.
