its too early to be amusing =_=
Years in Fandom: too F-ing long? Probably before some of you were birthed.
First anime: technically it’s Future Boy Conan. But the first I can actually really remember was Vampire Princess Miyu <3
First manga: X/1999. This set the stage for my anime/manga pallet. Regardless of how redundant CLAMP can be I will always love them just the same.
Number of anime series seen: thanks to the Anime Opening Video Timeline Project [shameless plug] I’m trying to figure this out and create a “watched” list…early estimate would be “a sh!t ton”
Number of manga read: I worked and studied in DC for a few years and rode the cute subway system they have there. I say cute because its like a jungle gym compared to NY/Tokyo's transit systems…anyway I wasted an average of 200-400 bucks a month (on and off) on manga which I would buy daily. An hour commute one way, so that’s one to two volumes a day. So again “copious amounts” …not to mention I didn’t discriminate against utter crap so I’ve read the whole gamete.
Number of (real) DVDs owned: I’m a picky bastard. I also have a bad habit of buying then giving away or selling the bulk of my collection. Right now my shelves are a little sparse.
Number of (real) manga owned: not enough :P
Number of artbooks owned: one anime artbook sadly. Vampire Princess Miyu. otherwise I'd be scanning with the rest of you.
Fandom Experience (unpaid work on websites, fanfiction, translation, forums, fansub, fandub, etc): this is where I fail the interview. Never been active, skilled, or interested enough. So none....oh and I'll whore myself and draw fanart if you motivate me enough.
Industry Experience (actual paid jobs in anime/manga): nada unless these count: I cheated people out of their money working Artist Alley booths at a couple cons years ago. I also worked at the physical store Starland now online at eStarland.com in my early 20’s pushing import merchandize, games, porn, etc. the owner is a prick but reliable if you are a customer.
Relevant Skills: I draw eyebleeds with meticulous care.
References: available upon request. I’ve been a serial lurker for most of my internet life so I don’t think anyone would vouch for me.
So do I get the job?
I wanted to add extra geeky categories and be more of a funny ass but my motor's not running full steam this morning, maybe I'll update my resume later. just wanted to set the ball in motion. dont be shy ppl
