Hi @Jongriffin welcome to AL
Have you been to any cons at all?
Thank you for the warm welcome everyone. A bit more about me...
Well, when it comes to anime, I love the work of Studio Ghibli, but that seems cliche to say with how popular their work is. Therefore, I also enjoy the work of Satoshi Kon (though I don't think I could watch Perfect Blue again, even though it is a very well done movie). As for series, Ranma 1/2 is what got me into anime, aside from the work of Studio Ghibli. I also love the Tenchi series, but I am a heathen, preferring Tenchi Universe over the OVA. I highly enjoy Macross and wish that Harmony Gold would let the rest of the series come here. Dragonball Z is enjoyable, but I find original Dragonball superior. The three recent animes I am enjoying the most are Knights of Sidonia, Attack on Titan, and the criminally underrated Children of Whales.
As for manga, I adore One Piece, though I wish it would come to a conclusion. I find Ah My Goddess to be a beautiful manga series. And like the animes, I love the mangas Children of Whales and Ranma 1/2. Dr. Slump is a hoot, as is Assissination Classroom. One of the most beautiful mangas I've been reading is Vagabond. Right now I am on the fence about reading Rurouni Kenshin. I love the manga, but I am very disappointed with the writer right now. I also love obscure manga, such as Mai: The Psychic Girl as well as Samurai Crusader.
When it comes to anime and manga, sometimes I like the manga better, sometimes the anime, and a lot of it for me has to do with the style, whereas I feel the art of a certain story can look better as a manga or anime. Some stories function perfectly in both mediums.
Aside from anime and manga, I also love a lot of French animation and graphic novels.
I am a reader. I have my own personal library I have accumulated over the years. I love fantasy, science fiction, and Gothic short stories and novels. I am a huge fan of Tolkien. But I also love classic literature and non-fiction books dealing in religion, philosophy, history, ecology, astronomy, and paleontology. I am an independent writer of fiction and non-fiction, and I am working towards publishing my fiction work. I also love art, particularly Romanticism, Ukiyo-E, traditional Chinese, Art Nouveau, Impressionism, and modern Fantasy. I love fine-art photography, too, and I am a fine-art photographer who is always growing and learning. I am interested in linguistics, teaching myself Spanish, Japanese (of course), French, German, Swedish, Swahili, Romanian, Czech, Hebrew, Arabic, and Vietnamese.
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Yay another Ranma fan! I love both the anime and the manga
That's a lot of languages to learn! Do you find it hard learning so many at a time?
which language are you finding the easiest or hardest to learn?
Hello welcome to AL i hope to find you round the forum i have Have you watched all tenchi series i got them all on DVD including the movies

Hi there. Welcome to Anime League!
I love roaming the forums and have all the time in the world. Feel free to message me anytime if you feel like chatting!
Thank you!!! Children of Whales is criminally underrated! Someone had to say it!
So question time! I love sci-fi and fantasy too! Recently I've been really into the sci-fi side, reading CJ Cherryh and Lois McMaster Bujold, but my first love was fantasy. Do you have any recommendations to turn my head back towards fantasy?
