Anime and Manga- I've been a fan of anime technically since I watched Pokemon, but I consider my first "real" anime and the springboard for my interest to be Hunter x Hunter. Favorite anime include Revolutionary Girl Utena, Mob Psycho 100, and Hunter x Hunter. Favorite manga includes Witch Hat Atelier and Shimanami Tasogare.
Vocaloid- I've been a Vocaloid fan since I was 12. I'll talk more in the upcoming shrine page I'm creating. Long story short, I saw a tweet linking Triple Baka and the rest is history. Favorite producers include PinocchioP, Deco 27, Nuyuri, and Abuseken among many others.
Kpop- Kpop is another thing that's a bit of a mixed bag because I'm talking about a whole entertainment industry. It's all so corporate and there's a lot of messiness behind the scenes which, again, applies to literally every entertainment industry. That said, I do really enjoy a lot of kpop groups both as a casual fan and as a super fan of some groups. Favorite groups and soloists include Loona, GWSN, Sunmi, and Taemin. I'm also a casual fan of Weki Meki and Pixy.
Jfashion- Very broad but the specific styles I enjoy are cult party kei, Menhera, and Lolita fashion. Fashion for me needs to be a mix of comfort, practicality, and style. Cult party kei is where I take my daily style inspiration from. I like the sheer, soft, white layers characteristic of the style as it's both easy to find while thrifting and very practical to wear. Menhera is obviously more than just a fashion style and I like its focus on illustrations, mental health, and accessibility, all in the name of self expression and advocacy. Lolita fashion is a style I have admired for a very, very long time but have only recently had the finances to even consider purchasing it. I'm hoping to get my first dress within this year! Favorite lolita brands include Metamorphose, Angelic Pretty, and Atelier Pierrot.
