1) How long have you been watching anime?
Since... When I stumbled on toonami for the first time like... 13 years ago? I definately went through phases of watching different anime though, like I didn't start becoming an otaku till like high school.
3) Why did you start watching anime?
Cause it's fun. Also I like good stories, entertaining stories, like I love Pokemon and Star Wars and Jurassic Park and I wanted to get into more stuff.
4) How many times do you rewatch an episode or series?
Depends. Like maybe once or twice more depending on if I like said episodes of series or the length. It's so easy to rewatch all of Bleach because I love it or 20 episode shows rather than 100+ episode shows. And sometimes I'll skip episodes I dislike.
5) What's your favorite genre to watch/why?
Mm... I want to say action. Well animated action and a creative use of action I love. Like RWBY which isn't technically anime or like Fate/Zero just doing creative moves you wouldn't think I love a lot. Slice of life/light anime are fun too.
Oh and yuri. I like yuri.
6) What's your most unfamiliar genre?
7) What's one thing that persuades you to keep watching an anime after episode 1?
Honestly if the first episode can make me interested and if it can lay out what the show is and what it's about. I think the strongest first episodes I watched were Bleach, Fate/Zero, Binbougami ga, and Psycho Pass.
8) Who is your favorite Japanese or English voice actor?
I don't keep up with many seiyus but I love Kana Hanazawa. She's played several characters I like and is good at it. As far as English there's a lot but Michelle Ruff, Brina Palencia, Colleen Clibkenbeard, Johnny Young Bosch, and Crispin Freeman stand out in my mind.
9) Favorite anime soundtrack
Bleach and Rebuild of Evangelion come to mind.
10) Favorite anime song that you crank up and dance to?
Mm... "Make my Day" by Piko brings me joy. It's very uplifting (Binbougami Ga).
11) What anime song are you currently addicted to?
Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works second intro. Called "Brave Shine" by Nightcore.
12) Do you like to buy anime merchandise? If so, what do you collect?
I love figures and I love wall scrolls. I want to buy more of my favorite characters, ones with articulation that can hang out on my desk.
13) What is your guilty pleasure anime?
...Strawberry Panic. Well it is one of my favorite shows even though it's flawed. It's also really girly but so sweet. Actually most yuri that are slice of life are for me.
14) What anime made you cry?
Bleach episode... Can't remember but a character dies and the anime does such a marvelous job at animation and music and writing for their departure. It's just great.
15) Favorite food to eat when you're having an anime marathon?
I do eat quite a bit sometimes watching anime but it's either apples, oatmeal, or sandwiches. Mostly light and easy to make stuff. Water is always near me and I like coffee sometimes. Oh but most magnificent food to eat watching anime is ramen, I could marathon (and have) entire shows eating bowls of ramen.
16) What anime are you currently watching right now?
Fate Stay/Night: Unlimited Blade Works and Hibike! Euphonium. Both I like but Fate just doesn't measure up as much to Fate/Zero which at the moment feels like the better show. Hibike I got over and watched cause tumblr kept making gifs of the two protagonists and apparently there's yuri subtext. And episode 8 happened and... OTP.
