My online Alias is Aarana. I created it back in 2000 when I originally joined the Sailor Moon Community. Basically, I had wanted a name with two A's so that my name would be first on the list. (what can I say, I was 16!). My real name is Kelly, and I have been in love with Anime since 1995 when I first saw Sailor Moon on TV. To this day it is still my favorite series...but my viewing tablet has expanded. I'm 29 years old and I do full time work and school half time. I live on my own, and have two chinchilla's to keep me company.
I do accept friends requests, but please at least talk to me first ^_^. I also love it when people comment on my profile. I will respond to everyone! And I am happy to check out new clubs, just don't be offended if I decline. I personally don't want to join 80 different clubs, its too much to watch!
I prefer Shoujo anime. I can sometimes watch other genre's, but i really have to be in the mood for it. Cute and sickening need not apply. (But don't base that off of my cute and sickening watching list!) Definitely the more romance the better. Dislikes include anime's based off of games, or with bad endings.
I started reading manga several years after I discovered anime. (Sailor Moon was the first manga I started to read, then Ayashi No Ceres) I typically prefer a manga that are turns into an Anime. Just like Anime, I prefer to read a Shoujo manga. I adore teacher/student stories, and I feel there isn't enough good quality ones. I like the longer series, but sometimes I get in the mood for the one volume/one shot manga. If you have any suggestions, let me know! I'm always looking for manga to read. My reading list is beyond my comprehension at this point. (And yes, I am reading all of them. I desperately wait for new chapters.)
My first Asian Drama was PGSM (how who is actually surprised by that? It’s my total gateway series!) and while I loved it, I didn't truly get attached. It wasn't till about a year ago that I sat down and watched Hana Yori Dango 1....followed by Hana Yori Dango 2....and then it was all downhill from there. I adore Korean Dramas, I love Japanese Dramas, and there are some Taiwanese Dramas that I really like. I prefer the romance genre, and I like watching series that are based off of Anime/Manga that I have read or seen in the past. I have a list site for dramas, so if you are interested in making a list like MAL, see my sites below!
Hana Yori Dango (1+2) - Japanese
You Are Beautiful - Korean
Fated to Love You - Taiwanese
