I want to beat them.
Even though I'm not cool or strong, or just or beautiful, or cute or pretty. I want to beat the cool, strong, just, beautiful, cute and pretty people.
Even though I wasn't blessed with talent, even though I'm stupid and have a bad personality. Have bad grades, am misguided, and am a good for nothing. I want to beat the talented, smart, likable, over-achieving people.
I want to beat those with friends when I can't have friends.
I want to beat the people who work hard when I can't work hard.
I want to beat the victorious people when I can't win.
I want to beat the happy people when I'm miserable.
Even if I'm hated! Even if I'm despised! Even if I'm useless! I want to prove I'm better than the main characters!
*Note: My fav characters are permanently divided between Fav 5 female chars and Fav 5 Male chars.
Oh hey, you've reached down here, so I guess I can talk a bit about myself here.
I started watching anime a bit over a decade ago, back in highschool. I got introduced to the big 3 (Naruto, One Piece and Bleach) as well as a couple anime that aired on a channel called Animax, this was my first intro to anime, but I quickly moved to manga due to poor internet connectivity, where I read most of the manga that inspired the anime I knew.
It's been a while since then, but manga has become my favourite medium and I try to read as much as I can, and as varied as I can as well.
If you want to trade manga recs, I'm always up for it. Though I can't promise I'll read your reccomendations right away, I can at least promise you that I'll prioritise higher than the bunch of manga in my Plan To Read.
I love dark stuff, horror and gore and horror inspired stuff was always something that caught my attention from an early age. I also really like checking out bizarre and onorthodox manga as well.
If it's different I'll probably give it a check. With that said, I'm not the kind of person to dismiss a manga just because it's "mainstream", as I'm sure my manga list will show you.
I'm also a music geek with a music collection of over 300 CDs and just recently started collecting vinyl, although I own less than 30 as of right now.
My tastes in music are very similar to manga, I love weird experimental stuff, drone, Industrial, Doom, avantgard stuff, but I also like a lot of mainstream bands as well. Coldplay is one of my favourites for example.
So... yeah, if you wish to strike a conversation with me, just do it, I'm always up for it!
