Cinnamaroll Profile

 Before You Send An Add Request: I'm pretty open when it comes to adding people to my friendslist. However, I will go to your profile and check your feed first to see if you are prone to posting spoilers or flooding your feed.

chibi syungkyunkwan scandalHi There... Thanks for stopping by to check out what Cinnamaroll is all about (that would be me). Yes, I chose this username after the cute Sanrio character Cinnamoroll, but I did the slight spelling difference since it's a name that is usually taken already when I sign up for websites. But let's talk about me. I'm a born and raised Chicagoan that really stepped into the world of drama just a mere two years ago. Even though I would randomly watch shows on KBS here (Korean Broadcasting Station), that may or may not have had subtitles, I just couldn't bring myself to be interested in K-dramas. Really, not dramas at all. The soap operas that air during the day here would come to mind, and I just didn't want any part of that. One friend that has been into Korean culture for a long time convinced me to watch "Protect the Boss" since I was a fan of Kim Jae Joong. It was the first drama I watched to completion, but didn't get me to bite. It wasn't until a friend of mine that is as avid an anime watcher as I am kept bugging me to watch shows with her simultaneously, like we did with anime, so she could have someone to talk to about them. After enduring "Hana Yori Dango" and "Itazura Kiss", I got her to recommend some shows I would actually enjoy since she was familiar with my tastes. It was "Rich Man, Poor Man" that eventually got me to bite. After a bit more drama soul-searching, I was finally rolling with the big dogs as far as recognizing actors and classic tropes. Now, I'm a permanent resident of Dramaworld and I have no plans on leaving.

"Where there is anime, there is joy."       -Cinnamaroll

My true fandom lies with anime. I've been a fan since the late 90's when I was in high school (yes, I'm that old) and my love for anime grew stronger and stronger over the years while other people grew out of it. I can say that my life would truly be empty without the presence of anime. Each season, I'm usually watching about 8-11 different series. Unless it's a bad season with terrible offerings, which is always heartbreaking. Cosplay? Yep. Attend Cons? Yep. In anime group that meets up? Yep! The love is real, ya'll.

Since I've been at this for a while, I have a tried and true set of genres I generally levitate towards. That consists of: supernatural; slice of life; adventure; reverse harem; comedy; drama; fantasy; josei; sci-fi. If you need suggestions finding anime related to any of these topics, I'd be able to steer you in the right direction. But beware, I only watch subbed anime and don't keep track of whether or not something is dubbed in English. I also tend to stick to non-mainstream series, basically meaning stuff you aren't going to ever see on Cartoon Network or maybe not even Crunchyroll. So, no "Bleach", "Samurai Champloo", or "Death Note" over here.

I've been fortunate enough to finally find a mature group of people to surround myself with in regards to anime. I'm in an anime Meetup group that's pretty active. We just went to see "Princess Kaguya" last friday (12/5/2014) w/ drinks aftwerward at a nearby bar. There's also other fun stuff we get together to do on a regular basis. So, if you're in Chicago and a fan of anime, you should check the group out. One big activity I do is anime cons. Granted, I haven't been in a few years, but I do plan to go next year. Still trying to decide who'll I cosplay as. Again, if interested, check out the link to the right. You don't have to live in Chicago for this one. People travel here in hoards every year to attend this con. You'd have a local to attend with and show you how great this city is.
