I am a twenty-six year old african-american male from the [sometimes] great state of Louisiana. For the last thirteen or so years, I’ve been enchanted with the world of Japanese Animation or “anime” for short. In that time, I’ve seen the best of the best, the worst of the worst, and just about everything in between. When I’m not watching anime or toiling away at work, you can find me, more often than not, outside with my camera making a creative living as an amateur photographer or hammering away at my laptop outside working on a movie.
My favorite series are “Highschool of the Dead”, “Neon Genesis Evangelion”, “Aria”, “Mushi-Shi”, “Ghost Stories”, and “Planetes” among others. My favorite anime movies are “Dead Leaves”, “Barefoot Gen”, “Akira”, and “End of Evangelion” My favorite genre of anime is “Slice of Life”. My favorite English voice actors are Greg Ayres [squeaky-raspy for the win], Todd Haberkorn [PASTA!], Laura Bailey [Who else could play Sana Kurata with such conviction?!], Vic Mignogna [More swagger than is legal in seven states…], Mona Marshall [Nobody can play a nerd like she can], Spike Spencer [This dude IS Shinji Ikari…] Tiffany Grant [Asuka today, Asuka Tomorrow, Asuka Next week!] & Johnny Yong Bosh [It’s morphing time indeed]. My favorite anime directors are Junichi Sato, Nabeshin, and Hideaki Anno and my favorite anime mascot is Maa-Sachou from the “Aria” series.
