I think, a good method to describe one's character is to list the things that are important to that person. So here are some things that are important to me:
- First of all, my family and my friends and share house neighbours (and now, one of them is writing a livejournal, too - welcome, scholarwill! =^____^=) - Next, I love cats! At the moment I've got 3 of them at home! =^.^= - Japan, its new face as well as its history, same for the language - modern and old Japanese. At the moment, I'm a student of Japanese studies at the University of Tuebingen, Germany. - The Shinsengumi. It was a Samurai corps during the 1860ties in Kyoto, Japan. Its leader and vice-leader, born in farmer families, had dreamt to become samurai. They achieved their goal, but soon after that, the era of samurai ended - Japan opened to the Western world and disestablished the shogun and samurai system. You see, the story is one single tragedy. - Japanese dorama. The ones I've seen and liked so far are: Shinsengumi!; My Boss My Hero; Attention Please!; Majo Saiban (haven't seen this one to the end yet); Jigoku Shojo (well, this one is poorly filmed, I guess, they didn't have enough money to make it better, but I still like the storyline - even more so than the one in the anime) - Manga / Anime. My favorites are Ayakashi, Mononoke, Nana, Peace Maker (Kurogane), Jigoku Shojo, Anatolia Story and the animes of the Ghibly Studio. - Video Games. Especially the SNES games (yes, I still own one and I'm still playing it), Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, Zelda, Castlevania, Mario Kart and all these new games which work like Guitar Hero, Dance Revolution, Singstar and so on. *_* At the moment I'm playing Final Fantasy X and Resident Evil. ♥ - Music... the music I like is just too different to describe it all with one word, but I think you can say that I generally prefer Rock, Metal and Alternative. Nevertheless my very favorites are the Soundtracks of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies and the Russian singer Leonid Agutin. - Books. I mostly read books about Japan because I need to work a lot for my education, but in the last years I also enjoyed very much the Fandorin series written by Akunin. - My other hobbies which are sewing manga/anime dolls and cosplay costumes, kendo and my homepage.
Finished cosplay costumes: ~ Tsuzuki (Yami no Matsuei) ~ Lenne (Final Fantasy X-2) ~ Yamazaki Susumu (Peace Maker/Kurogane) ~ Tifa (Final Fantasy VII) ~ Hawkeye (Seiken Densetsu 3 / Secret of Mana 2) ~ Albert Wesker (Resident Evil game series)
