Tenderfoot’s Introduction Post!
Hello there! This is the post in which I introduce myself! (crosses fingers that everything will work right)
Hi! I’m so glad you decided to click on the read more, and join us here for my introduction post. Take a seat, take a seat. You see, while I might be a little shy at first, I’m also an incredible narcissist, and if there’s one thing I love to talk about other than anime, it’s myself.
My name’s Tenderfoot (that’s not actually what it says on my birth certificate, in case you were wondering) and I’m going to be a new writer here at Angry Anime Bitches! Whoo-hoo! I’ll be starting now, with the beginning of this upcoming Fall season. I’m a little new, so please bear with me as I learn the ropes. I hope you’ll enjoy my posts and I’m looking forward to writing and interacting with all of you!
Here’s a little bit more about me (in detail…sort of): I’ve been watching anime and reading manga all my life. I grew up watching shows like Ai Shite Night (or Rock n’ Roll Kids, as it was known on German television), Heidi, Girl of the Alps, Anne of Green Gables and the like when I was still in Kindergarten (I was one cool kid, let me tell you.) Some of my best memories are of getting up really early Saturday mornings to watch Pokemon with my brother, running (and I do mean running) home after school to make it just in time to catch the last 10 minutes of Sailor Moon and then watch Gundam Wing, or of going to our local video rental store and picking out a show to watch, one DVD at a time (note: letting your 5th grader watch Neon Genisis Evangelion is a horrible idea because it will give them (and by them, I mean me) terrible nightmares for life.) I took a long break from anime, so I missed watching a lot of good shows, but now I’m back and working hard to make up for lost time. I never stopped reading and collecting manga though, and I’m very proud of my collection.
If you have any questions for me, or want me to expound on my love for 80’s music, kittens, Hana Kimi, or anything else you can think of, let me know in the comments! Yay!
Some of my favorite anime: The Vision of Escaflowne, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Sakamichi no Apollon, Kimi ni Todoke, FLCL, The Twelve Kingdoms (Juuni Kokuki), Mushishi, Sailor Moon, Usagi Drop, Mononoke, and Rurouni Kenshin.
