I've been here in MAL since January 2018. I'm pretty active on forums (especially in forum games) and made some of my own (they're kinda shitty threads though). However, I haven't introduced myself yet.
Hi, I'm TheKawaiiToon, a straight female. I refuse to reveal my age. The most I can say is that I'm a Gen Z. I'm also Filipino and is currently living in New Zealand.
I don't play video games unlike most otakus since I never grew up playing video games.
As my name kinda suggests, I also happen to love western animated films (such as the ones made by Disney), some cartoons and was formerly a part of the My Little Pony fandom (I still like the show though, just moved on to the anime fandom). The MLP fandom was partially the reason why I became an otaku myself.
I became an anime fan around late 2014 and been hooked up with anime ever since.
The things that can relate to me when watching anime can be seen in my profile. But I'll just add them here anyways:
All my favorite anime tend to have supernatural/fantasy elements, but can vary in tone and in popularity.
My favorite characters are usually either smart, stoic or adorkable
My favorite anime studios are Bones and KyoAni
I'm not a normie, yet I'm not an elitist either
I don't watch anime on a seasonal basis (at times I occasionally do) and would rather watch shows that have finished airing
I am mostly restricted to watching dubs (so please don't attack me sub-elitists). The reason is because I'm not a fan of reading and watching at the same time - to add on that, watching dubs can also help me focus on the visuals more. Although that doesn't mean I don't watch subs. In fact, there are some anime where I like the orignal Japanese better.
I don't read a lot of manga either. I only read manga if I happen to really love the anime and want more of it.
I can be a bit biased towards my favorite shows
I will never ever watch hentai (I'm actually serious)
Anime memes are my guilty pleasure - I often browse r/animemes and Instagram for them. I consider memes my stress relievers.
To add on to that, I also like to draw a lot and I'm currently planning to make myself a digital artist. I occasionally make videos on my YouTube channel.
I also used to do a couple of reviews, recommendations and blogs here in MAL in my first year. Now I rarely do so because of time and writing quality (in other words I'm a crappy writer).
That's all. Please feel free to add me here in MAL. Haven't had friends yet :(
