Hey! So excited to have found a Christian anime forum!
I've been into anime since my best friend first introduced me to it last spring. She said I had to at least watch ONE episode of Ouran. I consented and by the afternoon we had watched...11. I've been obsessed ever since!
It's kind of hard to explain my denomination... Up until 3 years ago I attended a very loose Alliance church, but when my family moved we decided to go with a Baptist church due to all the stuff that was going on with the Alliance about female elders. I would describe myself as a "Bapticostal". I like a good solid Baptist sermon with all the fellowship and potlucks, but I'd much prefer a Pentecostal worship service.
I LOVE kids and believe that God is calling me to the field of child evangelism. This summer I hope to participate in the CYIA program (Christian Youth In Action).
Three Facts About Me: 1). I have been homeschooled my entire life. 2). I am a prominent member in my local Air Cadet Squadron. -Yay! Drill!
3). I used to sing on my church's worship team but had to quit because I was involved in too many things.
Some of my random favourites, the colour teal, white horses, wolves, owls, and history -especially Greek mythology, FYI: I liked it BEFORE it was cool! ;-)
I have a lot of hobbies (basically whatever I feel like at the moment) which include writing poetry, drawing manga, crocheting, climbing trees and jumping in the creek! I go barefoot whenever I possibly can, and sometimes wish that I was in the '70's just so that I wouldn't be the only one who thinks that flowy skirts, moccasins, and fringe vests are awesome.
So...yeah. That's me! If you want you can stop reading here. Well, technically you could have stopped reading at any point that you wanted...but you didn't! So thank you! Anyway, the rest of this post is just a list of all the anime I've seen and my quick thoughts on them.
~Amnesia -Loved it!! :-D The soundtrack was phenomenal and the art...don't get me started on the ART! <3
~Clannad/Clannad Afterstory -The first one was ok, but I liked the second one a lot better, I'm rewatching it with my little sister now.
~Fruits Basket -I also read the manga, which was SO much better than the anime, although I loved both!
~Full Metal Panic/Second Raid/Fumoffu -I liked the first one; and Fumoffu was pretty cute, but Second Raid was a little bit too...iffy.
~Fullmetal Alchemist/The Conqueror of Shamballa/Brotherhood -Currently my favourite anime! I was really annoyed with Brotherhood at first since I had expected a sequel instead of a remake. But once I wiki-searched the series and got all the versions straightened became just as (if not more) obsessed with it as the first. :-D (Now reading through the manga!!)
~Hetalia Axis Powers -A non-Christian friend recommended this to me, playing up how hilarious it was (which, admittedly, it was) but they neglected to mention how foul-mouthed everyone is... But, as a MAJOR history freak, I stuck it out to the end.
~Inu X Boku SS -No comment really. It was funny, had good art, but doesn't really stick out too much.
~Kaichou wa Maid-sama! -Loved this anime! It was one of the first I watched and I was not disappointed!
~Kamisama Hajimemashita -I loved the art in this one! The storyline was really cute and interesting as well.
~Kuroshitsuji 1 & 2 (AKA Black Butler) -This one I took with a grain of salt. It actually kind of became a game to see how much I could point out was wrong with this anime from a theological point of view. But other than that, it was a pretty thrilling anime, I'll admit that I enjoyed both seasons.
~Onegai! Twins (AKA Twins Please!) -Cute storyline with a good balance of drama and humour. It was one of my favourites for a while.
~Ouran Koukou Host Club (AKA Ouran High School Host Club) -I watched this one in dubbed, and even though I HATED the theme song with all of my heart and soul, I loved the character development and storylines.
~Sword Art Online 1 & 2 -OH. MY. GOODNESS. Now, maybe I'm biased because this was my second anime (also the first one I'd seen in subs), but can I just say that I loved it SOOOO much? The first and last story-arcs were my favourites, the second one was kind of "weird", but the rest were alright. And while the whole series was great the first time around, I always skip over Alfheim when I'm rewatching it.
~Air -I had some good expectations for this anime...which were quickly dropped, along with the series. I got to the 11th out of 13 episodes and just couldn't stand it anymore.
~Death Note -I tried watching this pretty early on in my anime obsession. I found the whole demon thing a bit weird and stopped after a few episodes. But now, having seen Kuroshitsuji, I could PROBABLY handle it... ;-)
~Fate/Zero -Well, I wouldn't say I've dropped it per se. More like, suspended it indefinitely? The premise seems pretty solid, and the art was ok, but it just didn't grab my attention like other anime.
~Hetalia World Series -Yeah...I just couldn't stand all the swearing and crude jokes anymore. The occasional cuss and innuendo can be ignored, but EVERY OTHER WORD IN THE SCRIPT??? Give me a break. :-\
~Shakugan no Shana -Hmm...I guess it was the giant man-eating baby that kind of turned me off of this one.
~Watamote -Biggest. Mistake. Ever. I think I suffered through about four episodes of this one before raging "Enough already!!"
