D: I like a lot of anime and manga genres! I prefer serious stories though like Ghost in The Shell, Samurai7, Psycho-pass. I veer away from anime that focuses on panty shots and boobs that can dodge bullets (・∀・) . Though I still watch senseless and fanservicy anime like K project and Utapri.hihihihi <3
Most of my favorites are by Production I.G.! It really helps when the animation is so good *u*
As for cosplay, I have different reasons! Sometimes I have a huge crush on a character, sometimes I can relate to him/her, I find the design so challenging that I want to make the costume or I’m in a group and this character fits my height and look best. No matter what the reason I ALWAYS have to be a fan of the series first though.
Cosplay is so expensive and time consuming so I’ll only do it if I like the series . Otherwise putting effort in a character you don’t understand is stupid and disrespectful to fans of the series you are cosplaying from. :>
