(This said I can be as in depth as I like... >:] This shall be fun!)
I'm Karen, generally known as Ebony in the marvelous world of the interwebs. I'm pretty new to the whole manga and anime thing, but let me just thank you all first; this site has done a lot to get my mom used to the idea of wholesome manga and anime.
Little story about that...
When I was about 12, I started taking a liking to the drawing style and asked her if I could get some books about it. She promptly told me it was demonic (as in, the drawing style itself...) and that I should never mention it again. That same day, we went to the library and she got me a book on drawing manga. :p So, here I am 3 years later, just as talentless as I was back then. ^_^ That doesn't stop me from loving it though; I've just recently convinced her to let me read some, and this site is primarily where I found my reviews. So.... thanks! XD Hopefully, I can contribute some and not be so much of a leech anymore.
I tend to watch more anime than read manga, but a few favorites from both worlds are Doubt, Death Note, Azumanga Daioh, and Skip Beat. (Actually, those are the only ones I've actually finished. XD Like I said, I'm really new to this.)
Things that are also semi important:
*I'm a Christian: I got saved 5 years ago. ^_^ As my awesomely-southern pastor would say; "Weeeeell glory!"
*I just turned 15, and thus I can read a whole new age level of manga here! >:D YUS! So, on that subject I'm also ahead a grade and I start dual enrolling in my local college in a year. *shudder* And I get my permit this summer. ^_^
*I like talking about myself way too much. O_o Sorry...
*Writing is my passion, though not necessarily my talent. Lord willing, I'll be an author when I grow up, but we'll see. I've got a lot to learn...
*That being said, I'm probably going to end up haunting your RPG forums. >:]
*When I was 4, I tried to kill a kid in my daycare with a plastic knife. Thus, I've been homeschooled ever since. Actually, now-a-days, I go to school once a week and get my homework for the rest of the week, so it's only pseudo-homeschooling.
*I am terrified of roaches.
*Asterisks are awesome. They're bullet points, emphasis, action tags and just plain awesomeness all rolled into a delightful sushi roll of joy and love. Plus, they can make this little face thingy: ^(*-*)^
So... Yeah. :p I'm done...
