Hey everyone, its Sakura here.
The first anime I saw was Guyver and that got me interested in anime. But it wasn’t until I emigrated to the U.S (I am British by birth) about 5 years ago that I was up late and happened to catch Adult Swim.
They were airing InuYasha a show a friend had mentioned I might want to check out. And wouldn’t you know it I got hooked! I watched it religiously, went on the internet to find more, even watched the raws since I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. There was no turning back!
It still remains one of my favorite shows. Although I don’t really limit myself to any particular genre. As long as I find it interesting I’ll watch it. I have a long list of shows I’ve watched and loved, but I won’t go into it since its too long. But I will say even though it isn’t so recent anymore Ghost Hunt is one of my firm favorites.
Shows I am currently watching are Nabari no ou, Junjou Romantica, Vampire Knight, Naruto Shippuden, and Bleach. But if I can find the time I would like to check out Soul Eater and Library Wars.
The number of mangas I’ve read is pretty long too so I won’t go into it. Currently just a few of the ones I am reading include Naruto, InuYasha, Bleach, Vampire Knight and Skip Beat, but there are many more I haven’t listed. Most recently I read the latest Trinity Blood novel out here and the latest Koukou Debut. I’m a huge romantic so I’m a sucker for shoujo. But as you can see I also like my shounen titles.
As well as participating in the all girls round robin. I would like to write about whatever shows or mangas I am currently following. I know that there are already blogs out there following shows and mangas like Naruto. But not all are consistent and I think it might be interesting to get a girls view on some of the shounen shows.
But I won’t limit it to that. I love watching movies, I’m into gaming and to a small extent comic books. This summer there is a plethora of great movies out so don’t be surprised if I throw out a review or two about those.
I look forward to working with everyone in the blog! Viva la revolution!
Oh and about the name of the blog. Its shortened from ‘The Guild Of Calamitous Intent’ A shady organization from a show I watch called The Venture Bros. One of the few non-anime shows on Adult Swim that is worth watching.
Anyway it sounded cool and funny and the other girls agreed. Because while we want people to take what we say seriously, we also want to have fun. We hope you have fun reading and commenting on what we have to say!
