Hai :3

Postby Yin » Thu Aug 25, 2011 9:30 pm

[font="Arial"][color="Teal"]Hai. :3 -waves-, -then does the wave by herself- o-o;

My name's michelle, but you can call me Yin. :D (No there is no correlation between birth name and nickname, the nickname just kind of happened) and, it's probably obvious given the venue, but I'm a Christian who's very fond of the anime-con-going-otaku-culture. I like PC games, video games, anime, manga(although I dont really read as much as I watch things o-o), and I LOVE going to anime cons +0+. I love to cosplay, I don't mind crossplay, (in fact I have done it before, I was simon from Tengen toppa gurren lagann), and I accept all the strange weird and even sometimes pervy nature that comes with this culture in general. Honestly, I was surprised there was a Christian anime-loving group, on the count of most animes (at least the ones I've seen lately) have always got a pervy and or violent nature to it. I'm glad to see other brothers and sisters in Christ accepting the abnormalities and (sometimes!) offensive nature of anime in general. Although it has never been offensive to me in any way. ;)

Anywhoooooo, I shall tell you more about myself. I'm a girl. :O Kind of obvious given my name and the crossplay thing earlier, but yeah. I'm 17, homeschooled for the past few years, I love what you would (or wouldn't?) call "otaku" culture. I know some people find that term incorrect, but I'm referencing the americanized definition of the word. :sweat: and, well, I don't have many Christian anime-loving friends, so I'm glad I found this site :3! I've attended two anime conventions, I know it's not that many, but I intend on going to every one I'm physically able to in the future! :jump: . So, well, yeah. Some of my favorite or recently watched animes include:

TTGL (Tengen toppa gurren lagann)
FMA (Full metal alchemist)
Death note
Ouran High school host club
Chobits (Just started watching this!)
Pokemon! oh man, I really love pokemon.. :grin:
Code Geass (haven't seen all of it, but I like what I see)
Vampire Knight (watched only the first season, also like it >.<!)
Fruits Basket (This was my first anime :D aside from pokemon/dbz, whatevs.)
DBZ (duh ^)
Yugioh
Avatar the last airbender (the only american-made anime that I liked so far :I)
Evangelion (intense. o-o)
Lucky Star
I've heard of/seen some of the popular ones, naruto, inuyasha, bleach, etc. I can recognize all the characters but I've never watched any of them through :S I've seen a decent amount of naruto, though. I'm not too crazy about REALLY long anime, I kindof like mechas, psychological ones (deathnote, etc) and cute animes about nothing. (Lucky star, ouran host club, chobits, etc xD)

I do love Vocaloid as well, which is not an anime, but it almost feels like it is. xD

I've also seen some of Gravitation, but, I honestly didn't like it too much. Aside from the fact that it is in fact yaoi, It just didn't captivate me. o-o; I was poking around on the forums earlier in a discussion about anime-cons, and I see that a lot of the userbase here is very put off by yaoi/yuri in general, which is to be expected in a Christian community. XD I would just like to say, I do put my faith first, I love God and try my best to obey his commands, but I am not offended nor do I turn my nose at yaoi/yuri. I *personally* think it's funny and cute (when in an anime con setting as well) although as I said, I have not really watched a yaoi/yuri series because I'm not into stories in which the main plot is based on the subject of sexuality. Also, hardcore yaoi/yuri, yeah, I can do without that. No arguements there. :eh: I have to say, on my anime-con adventures though, I do find myself cheering and getting giggly when two cosplayers or crossplayers, whether they be F/M, M/M, F/F, hug and or give each other a peck on the cheek. I find it funny and cute, but I don't.. "appreciate it in an inapropriate way". Let's just put it at that. :sweat: Like, the first time I went to animeNEXT, during the pre-show of the masquerade, the camera was put on two cosplayers that were L and Light from deathnote. They saw this, and to get a rise out the crowd, grabbed each other in a hug and smooched in a light-hearted manner. I believe they were both girls. :S at the time I happened to find this hilarious and adorable. I hope this type of humor doesn't offend anyone here. If it does, I'll be sure to keep those stories/opinions to myself. :sweat:

ANYWHOOOx2, I hope to get to know the community here, as I would love to make some Christian friends with similar hobby interests. :angel: So, tell me about yourself too.

Got any crazy con stories to tell?
Favorite animes?
Favorite kind of music?
Favorite kind of question? (a question within a question! IT'S INCEPTION! :eh: )

also, I am extremely amused that this is an emoticon :dance:[/color][/font]

Welcome to the tasty cinnamon roll (CAA)! Enjoy the ever scrumpticious delightful goodyness!

I haven't gone to one, but I really want to go to a cosplaying convention.
Dragon Ball Z.
I seem to take a large love for soft songs, but I also love hip hop and rock.
Don't really have one.

Hello and welcome to CAA!

1.) I've sadly never been to a con yet. Might be to old now. :lol:
2.) Tons! I especially like Durarara, Axis Powers Hetalia, Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, Fruit's Basket and Kimba the White Lion/Jungle Emperor though. xD
3.) I guess rock and country. I don't really pay attention to genre.
4.) Hm...I'm not sure.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I like you already.

1. Well, there was this one time that me and Ryan snuck into the dealer's room, and we got behind one of the booths and...wait, what's the statute of limitations on theft again? I don't think I can tell this story yet.

2. Fushigi Yugi. I don't watch much anime anymore though.

3. Classic rock and video game remixes.

4. The kind I can't ask here.

DiamondDragon - the Sky pokemon
Ruling the skies on its thick wings, this Pokemon is feared by all flying beasts. Its twinkling wings change in the sunlight. Some people believe that this pokemon actually has diamonds that grow on its skin. Despite its intimidating size, it is an extremely friendly ally and a very dangerous enemy.

Welcome to CAA, Yin! ^_^ hee hee, your username is as short as mine!

Got any crazy con stories to tell?
I've never been to an anime convention. *shifty eyes* But I guess the craziest thing I've done at a con is walk up the down escalator while waiting for my mom at a gardening convention. Yeah, not so crazy.

Favorite animes?
FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: BROTHERHOOD. =D
...and Ouran High School Host Club, Fruits Basket, Clannad, Avatar: The Last Airbender,...

Favorite kind of music?
Almost anything. I'm not a particular fan a rap, techno, screamo, heavy metal, or anything that gives me a headache though.

Favorite kind of question?
I have no clue...

Hiya and welcome to CAA! =D

1. Hmm... No. I've never been to a con. :'<

2. Oh boy. Naruto, Lucky Star, Shugo Chara, Hetalia: Axis Powers/World Series, Earl and Fairy, Azumanga Daioh, Fruits Basket, and Ouran Highschool Host Club. Pretty much any anime that I've watched and liked is my favorite. =3

3. Techno. And Christian contemporary. Specifically, Christian Techno. And some classical. A little bit of Christian metal, too. I guess I like it all. ^^;

4. Um... huh. Well, what's YOUR favorite? (Haha, I like rhetorical questions... as long I'm the one asking them. =3 )

Marry me.

Uh, I mean, welcome to CAA! 'S always good to have a new member. As for your questions:

1. I haven't gone to any nerdcore cons, but I did go to a mining con one time. Someone found some vivianite in a gold mine core, which was pretty cool, and there was a panel where they talked about new explanations for some earth processes, with free beer provided (I didn't have any).

2. FMA:Brotherhood, TTGL, Giant Robo: TDtESS.

3. Scandinavian power metal, prog rock/prog metal, '80s one-hit wonders, cheesy '90s techno (Captain Jack, Scatman John, etc.), video game music.

4. In violent times, should you really have to sell your soul?
