hi i´m Moggwa :D SHin shan when i was like 4 orso


I just go by Shay, I'm 17
I read a lot of manga and that ended up turning into seeing any kind of anime. The anime I would say is... One Piece but I have to say my favorite a time anything is the movie "Koe No Katachi"

Thor, 38, and the first Anime I saw was Akira, which admittedly at the time didn't do much for me other than its soundtrack.

And 2 years later I got into anime because of Deadman Wonderland ~

Steve from Florida near Disney World. I had watched stuff like Pokemon, Sailor Moon, and Dragon Ball Z, but I think what really got me was Tenchi Muyo.

And this is my first entry to otaku status:
