My name's Mafer, 32 years old. I work at the government during office hours and hit the wacom or needles and hook the moment I get home. I have a daughter that I love a lot but is going on her teenage years and is rather annoying atm :P
Since I was a child and even before 'anime' and 'otaku' were known words around the world, I've liked japanese culture a lot, and I'm particularly inclined towards the food: obentou, wagashi, sushi, daifuku, pocky... You name it, I love it. X3 I also love origami and kawaii stuff.
I also have a dark side, because I love goth stuff... Which is why I love laces, crosses and elegance. And to that you can add all things Steampunk. Man, those are the best. Unfortunately I'm not that good when it comes to translating it into my wardrobe and makeup so it's only an unrequited love.
I love colours, specially green (all sorts of green), wine, black, white, gold and pale pink. And I really feel influenced by Art Nouveau, which is my favorite artistic movement. You might tell I like elaborated things.
I also like sweets, all kinds of tea (my favorites are green tea and Houji but I'll take any that can be mixed with milk for a warm evening anytime), chocolate, rainy days with a glance of sunlight. Noltalgic memorabilia like pin-ups and Coca-Cola ads.
Good looking guys for me are like Axel from Kingdom Hearts or Uta from Tokyo Ghoul.
I'm currently playing Fire Emblem Awakening like crazy so anything that involves Gaius, Inigo or Virion is always welcome (well, anyone at all, but those are my favorite three).
Okay then, hoping you understand and tolerate how I dislike certain things the same way I understand and tolerate your dislikes, here's my ranting about stuff I don't like:
I don't like odd shaped animals like dogs, frogs and related items (by odd shaped I mean things like this: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/Degard/M-32861-2.jpg ).
I also dislike anything that could come out of a Hallmark postcard. It's way too commercial and I consider that it clashes with the concept of swapping special stuff.
I hate emo stuff, like, the typical The Ramones white logo surrounded by bright pink. So no black/white+kill-my-eyes-neon combinations please @ @
Btw, remember the 'anything tea is accepted' statement before?... I just remembered I kind of dislike anything with stuff like blueberries. Those infusions thend to be rather acid and I can't mix them with milk.
Some things I love are letter sets and flake stickers. Stamps and deco or washi tapes are also things I'd like to have; postcards, origami and lucky stars paper also. I like Sumikko Gurashi, Kutusita Nyanko, bunnies and kittens and Alice in Wonderland stuff. Also any kawaii food related stuff is just great, and I really love Hannari Tofu and Gudetama! Chocolate is my passion and strawberries too, and japanese traditional sweets or wagashi. I also love having some sembei and I believe daifuku are great. Tea stuff is always loved and gratefully accepted, most specially matcha/milk stuff. =)
Please don't send any poop related items, because... well... it's poop. Also no real puppies nor kittens nor babies nor anything. Don't like real stuff in the kawaii section.
My likings are very distant, right now I might be hearing j-pop and the next moment I'll go for power metal. I've realized that most of times, rather than liking just a couple of bands and knowing all their songs, I prefer to know a lot of songs from a lot of bands. But if you want a very particular band, I would say that Human Drama wins my heart hands down.
I of course have my special list selected from between the randomness, they are: Apocalyptica, Aleks Syntek, David Bowie, The Dresden Dolls, Arctic Monkeys, The Mars Volta, The Offspring, The Pillows, Muse, Richard Cheese (If you love funny covers, THIS is your guy!!), Tropikal Forever, Final Fantasy and Legend of Zelda soundtracks. I also rediscovered Liszt, his Hungarian Rhapsodies are beautiful.
From ニコニコ I love ぐるたみん, Gero and 伊東歌詞太郎.
My most favorite of books is "The Neverending Story" by Michael Ende, when it comes to likings, be it from Rowling's Harry Potter books going through Ann Rice's Vampire Chronicles and ending at Wynne Jones' collection. I'm an all about fantasy lover.
But I also love science fiction, Dan Simmons is one of my most favorite writers and Frank Herbert is sublime, the Dune saga is breathtaking. I definitely have a soft spot for sci-fi in my dark little cuddly heart.
My hobbies are knitting, crochet, drawing, taking photos, cooking.
I love doing lucky stars but I unfortunately had to stop doing them since the Corean store that imported them closed.
I'm best at pencil drawing, but now that I have my Intuos I'm in digital heaven.
Another thing I'm very proud of is that I'm quite capable of creating my own books, hardcover and all.
Mostly doing things from stuff I already got and transform them into really cool looking stuff with the lowest budget I can get. Yeah, I know this makes me sound like a cheap person but trust me that when I tell you really cool looking it MEANS really cool looking. :)
The Dark Night, The Fifth Element, The Red Violin, Cronos, Coraline, Hayao Miyazaki's work is some of the best I've ever seen, I also have a special place in my heart for The Nightmare Before Christmas...
Movies are not really my forte, so that's why I'll leave it like that. :3
I actually ain't much a T.V. person and prefer to watch anime more than anything.
My fav's pretty much are Shokugeki no Souma, Samurai Champloo, Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu, Lucky Star and Katanagatari.
I currently am watching Drifters and can't wait for the 2017 winter season to realease Ao no Exorcist and Little Witch Academia
