1. I am eighteen.

2. Well over 1,000 manga books and there must be a good number of DVDs laying around.

3. I started getting into it right when Pokemon came out, and up until I was... oh... fifteen. Since then I've really not been into it, due to much of its fanbase and the repetition I find in this genre. However there are still some series that I love to no end.

4. I've attended a total of five conventions, trying to attend more!

5. Like, half an hour every two weeks XD

6. I cosplayed as Miles Edgeworth/Reiji Mitsurugi from Phoenix Wright. I commissioned this costume but tailored some of it, but I did trim and style the wig myself (took about two hours). Then I cosplayed as your run of the mill EGL (Elegant Gothic Lolita) and this was mostly a mish-mash of clothing I had previously bought in other places. I did make arm warmers for myself though, that maybe took 45 minutes. *FAIL*



Sorry, that was probably a little tl;dr~

1. 16

2. I don't have many anime DVDs, since I usually borrow them from a friend who has an extensive collection. My manga collection has only just started recently, but so far I have about 30 manga volumes.

3. I've been into it extensively for the past two years, but have been a casual fan since I was six.

4. One, Anime Boston this year has been my first time. ^^

5. Ehh...ten?

6. I was Lucy from Elfen Lied and it took me about five hours, since I used mostly common place items for it.

1. 19, 20 next month! O.O

2. About 450+ books... (I try to keep track. xP) And some dvds. I'm more of a manga person, to be honest. I've also read/watched a lot online.

3. Ever since Sailor Moon came to America, I guess... ::looks up:: Whoa, 1995... 13 years, I guess.

4. Hm.. About 5, I think. Hoping to attend more soon!

5. Not as much as I'd like to with school and all... I try to have something a couple hours a day if I can...?

6. Dawn/Hikari from Pokemon Diamond & Pearl... This costume has been modified 2 times actually... Everytime, I had a different skirt and boots/boot covers. It's been greatly improved since the beginning and if you count those times fixed... Took me maybe 20+ hours? Not too sure... I'm still somewhat of a newbie to sewing so it would take me longer than some, but I'm proud of how I've done so far.

1. 18

2. Let's see 300+ manga...I think...maybe only 20 dvds including 2 full series.

3. Since 1994? Basically when I was young and into Sailor Moon and Card Captor Sakura, but I didn't know it was called anime back then XD

4. 5, all Anime Boston. Woot!

5. o.O Do you want to know? Probably 20+ hours. I'm one of those people who sits in barns and noble in the manga section for hours, when I can. Otherwise I'm watching anime online! XD

6. Just this year? Well my main one was Wiz aka With from D.N. Angel. I made it last year. It probably took...around 72 hours if you added it up. More like 100 if you include the planning and shopping for supplies...I really don't keep track of this kind of thing. It could have been 150 hours for all I know, but that just seems too long. I just focus on getting it done correctly. XD

1. 22

2. Hmm... just about 82 DVDs/boxsets (some signed by VAs), 53 volumes of manga, a couple plushies, several figurines (thanks to the boyfriend), a few miscellaneous knick-knacks...

3. Ever since grammar school. My uncle introduced me to "The Wind Warriors" and before I knew it, I was hooked.

4. 4 total (AB ['07, '08], Animation on Display '08, Anime Expo '07)

5. Oh wow... that varies widely, depending on my mood. XD

6. For AB '08, I was Vincent Valentine in his Turk uniform, and Kami-sama (Saiyuki Reload). Both didn't take too long, though Vincent's suit was hard as heck to find. Too long for just looking for a plain navy blue suit. >_<;; Most of Kami-sama's costume was made a day before the con, though I already had the beads, wig, and sandals before I flew out. It was awesome this year. ^_^

Manga: At least 120 books, primarily shojo with a fantasy bent: Alice 19th, Red River, Fushigi Yugi/Fushigi Yugi: Genbu Kaiden, Tarot Cafe, From Far Away, xxxHolic, Rev.

About 6.

4. How many Anime Convention have you attended?
Six.

5.On average, how many hours a week involve Anime/Manga?
Are you counting cosplay? ;-) Reading/watching, I'd say about 12-14. If you count working on cosplays, it's probably closer to 25-30!

6. If you cosplayed, which character were you and how long did it take to make your costume?
I've cosplayed several characters. I debuted my newest costume on Sunday at AB08: Lotis Master Alice Seno from Alice 19th; this was an involved costume that took me probably 80-100 hours of work spread over 2.5 months. I also cosplayed Sumomo from Chobits, a costume which took me perhaps 25 hours of work over 3 weeks.

1. How old are you?
15 (almost 16)

2. Can you give a brief description of your Anime/Manga collection? I have about 10gigs of anime on my laptop, and 13 manga volumes. I watch most stuff online, cause I don't have much money.
3. How many years have you been into Anime/Manga?
Hmmm, about two.

4. How many Anime Convention have you attended?
:( None. Hopefully that will change soon.

5.On average, how many hours a week involve Anime/Manga?
Whatever spare time I have, about 15-20hrs a week.

6. If you cosplayed, which character were you and how long did it take to make your costume? I've never cosplayed, but I'm hoping to debut at AB'09 or '10 as Shuichi from Gravitation. I'm hoping to make his concert outfit from the anime and possibly his puppy suit.

The manga/anime library I wish I had would have all volumes of Bleach and Death Note in it :3

3. Since around 5th grade, so...4 or 5.

4. Just one, AB08. Hope to be attending many more :3

5. Hmm...in a week, probably 150 out of 168 total.

6. I was Kisuke Urahara for AB08.
It took me 3 days to style my wig, and 3 weeks for my costume to come, so, I guess you could call that 24 days total.[/color]
AB08: Kisuke Urahara
AB09: L
AB10: Dr. Stein

1. 16, turning 17 in August.

2. Not much, I have a couple of InuYasha, Case Closed and various anime DVDs (Hoping to get some Bleach DVDs). I have a number of Shonen Jump mangas and a Girl Bravo manga volume 2.

3. Well I started watching anime when I was actually 4 years old watching Sailor Moon in the morning before I went to preschool. I didn't understand or in better terms "found out" about anime until I was 10 years old thanks to Trigun.

4. I been to one so far which would be Anime Boston 2008 since I never knew about it till last year in April just after AB 07.

5. About 10 hours including one hour of my time to stay after school for Anime Club at my school.

6. I cosplayed as Toshiro Hitsugaya for AB08 and I ordered it online. But I'm going to make the bankai version of him which would take at least 10 hours plus finding supplies to make the wings. And then I would make a Grimmjow Pantera form outfit, which would take at least 10 hours, both would be for AB09 though. :D

1. I'm 17.

2. I've got sporatic mangas - no series in full. As for DVDs I have all of FMA, Princess Tutu and Loveless. Other stuff, I go online for.

3. Oh plenty. Let's see... if you count from when I started watching shows I KNEW as anime, then about 5 years. However, if you count from me Digimon and Pokemon days...that adds up to about 9 years. ^^;

4. Unfortunately only one. Well, one for two years running. I've been to Anime Boston 07 and 08.

5. Hard to say...There's not really a set amount of time I spend on anime. I just sort of...do it. When I feel like it, or I'm board, I'll watch AMVs or read fanfiction or the like. I never really considered the collective hours I spend on it. :P

6. So far, I've only cosplayed Namine from KHII. It didn't take that long to put together, as I bought the dress and wig and didn't have to make them.
AB 2007 - 2010:
