Oh yeah,
But not anime?

More like sparkledogs and woah.
I can't believe I ever liked bright colours and over powered demon cats.

Oh, sparkledogggs.

When I stepped out of that stage, all of my colors were unsaturated, but after a while I yearned for color once more so I stepped back into that ring. But I'm so not into over-accessorizing or powering.

I'm kind of in a I-like-colour-but-not-really-enough-to-use-it stage.
My characters now are mostly birds or insects.

I've had a lot of friends go through it (and some still are), and they've introduced me to most of the anime and manga I've enjoyed, as well as a bunch I haven't, hahah. I like animation, comics, and culture from around the world, so I never really categorized it all that separately? XD The Japan/Korea/etc obsessors can be annoying though, particularly when they act as if they are experts on a culture because of some cartoon they watch.

Ah, no I was never in a weeb phase, although I some how sent someone else into it xD I was never super crazy about it - although I enjoy it it's not the center of my life. Never was :P

Not really. I've always liked anime and still do. Just..as I get older I'm more particular about it I suppose lol.

I do enjoy other cultures though but my life long goal is not to visit Japan even though honestly yeah that'd be cool.

I'd rather stop in Ireland first though or something lol.

I do like K-pop music and have for a long time, still do but I listen to other music as well fffu.

I like a lot of different things I guess. But you do know about my Black Butler OC'S -facepalm- but then again I'm not insane crazy about it.

Derp.

Oh man, Ireland is beautiful. ;; I'm afraid if I went there I wouldn't want to leave.

But yeah, I've had a Love Hina OC *brick'd to the face sooo hard* and characters with my friends that jumped to different anime universes. ;; SO many bad anime stories and crossover stories. soooomannnnyyy

I was definitely a weeaboo for a couple years in highschool but I grew out of it. Now I would say I'm just a huge fan of Asian cultures in general, but not Japan specifically. I can speak and read some Taiwanese Mandarin and I've visited Hong Kong, Macau, and South Korea before, and loved it there (at least HK and Korea... Macau is just casinos, nothing too interesting xD). I can read kana and hangul and also a fair share of kanji and hanja due to my exposure to both traditional and simplified hanzi in my Chinese studies. I'll likely study abroad somewhere in Asia within the next year, probably in Korea, Taiwan, or Japan. I've also been called an egg before by my Asian friends at college. ._.

Haha I'm not much of a world traveler but I hope to be someday. xD It's looking likely that I will study at Korea University within the next year now. :3 Way freaking cheaper than going to my own school in the US too.

I would say no because I didn't know about anime or any of that till like the eighth grade and I didn't know about all of it still because I didn't have internet till freshman year, so I would say no XD I just liked it then, and watched it when it played on adult swim. And I say I'm not one now, knowing all of it now asdkf <- I don't think any of that made sense pffffff

XD It means you're pretty much obsessed with anime and Japan's culture to where you're just like "I JUST WANNA LIVE IN JAPAN, IM JAPANESE INSiDE I SWEAR" and all of that fun stuff.

OH NO, IZ OC'S D:

Invader Zim is awesome but I never understood the fanbase. ;_; Just buy a tshirt and maybe some toys and the DVDs, but don't make IZ your lifestyle. ._.

But I'm glad you have you embarrassing phase before you publicized it on the internet.

I, on the other hand, would post japanese lyrics on my myspace statuses and bulletins. /seppuku

Yeah I mean like. Dude, gotta love that show.

But for me, as with anything I like comes a bitter hatred and loathing for the fandom. Invader Zim and Homestuck have probably the worst fandoms for me, so I turn into a hermit and enjoy these things by my lonesome.

I AM TOO WOW. Part of me is even more glad it wasn't TOO anime-based. Anime was there, but my interests were still Western-based haha.

I feel so bad for you wow.

Very briefly before I was on the Internet, thankfully.

And even then I was still always more into Western animation and my art was more influenced by that than by anime.

So I guess it was more of a... Western weeaboo phase??? Like there were some animes I liked but I was more of a huge Invader ZIM fan than anything.

Uhh so that makes me a. Zimtard? Zimaboo? Sure okay.

I can't even draw anime siIIGH.
