I'm Sumatnam! Or...whatever you want to call me, really. Even slander, though it will make me sad.
For the past two years I have been studying at an amazing University focusing on Fine Arts and East Asian Languages and Civilizations. The truth of the matter is, however, that I'm a huge nerdy derp.
I have been passionate about Japanese culture, way before I even knew what anime was, and have visited Japan twice now. My eventual hope is to move there to work. And yes, I can use and understand some Japanese. I also know some Spanish! Learning languages is the best!
That being said, now I am a huuuge anime fan. I also love manga and videogames. If I didn't have things to keep me busy, I'd be a fat couch potato gaming all day, haha.
My favorite anime is a long list, but at the top is Neon Genesis Evangelion and Mawaru Penguindrum. I could seriously talk about them all day. I also hugely love CLAMP, Princess Tutu, Natsume's Book of Friends, Shaft, Sunrise, Bones, and many more~!
So if you ever want to geek it up about anime, please let me be your man!
As for cosplay, I got into it around 2010...making this my fifth year as a cosplayer. I don't think I'd consider myself anything special, but I'd like to think I'm slowly learning.
Other than that there's a lot of things, really, but I don't want to bore anyone, lol. Feel free to chat me up about any old random thing anytime~ And if you ever see me at a con, don't hesitate to say hallo.
Thanks for stopping by!
Talk to you all soon!
