- Name: Ashlee M.
- DAS Position/Role: Member
- Location: In a town you dont know, about 30 minutes away from Willow Grove, PA.
- What are your favorite animes, music, and Asian
Overall, Naruto is my favorite. Yaoi is good too, and I watch Ani-Monday on Sci-Fi. I love Gackt, Larc-en-Ciel, access, and much more (they do most openings). I like any Studio Ghibli, or any Anime movie around (as long as it's not Sailor Moon.
- Hobbies outside of anime?
I like reading, Drawing, Writing, and anything to do with Twilight.
- What do you like best about the DAS?
It makes me happy to think there are lots of others out there who love anime just as much as I do.
- What do you think the future holds for the DAS?
I hope we can create a national Anime Soceity, where they can al gather at Conventions. That would be great!
- Do you cosplay? If so, what are your favorite
Well, I have only cosplayed once. I was Riza Hawkeye from FullMetal Alchemist. I would love to go as something awesome, like Yoko from Gurren Lagann, or Motoko Kusangi from Ghost in the Shell, but they have very skimpy clothes.
- Conventions attended and/or staffed?
I wish. I have never been to one yet, but I would like to go to AnimeNext, or Otakon. Any Convention with Vic Mignogna, or Travis Willingham. Johnny Young Bosch too.
- Have you ever named a pet/computer/insert word here
after an anime or Asian character? If so, which and why?
Yes. I have named my cat's Tobi and Deidara, from Naruto.
- What theme or institution in anime should be
decreased or increased and why?
I think they all have something in common. Each anime has someone short, someone who lovs Ramen, and someone who is very hyper. We need to break that habit! It's always the same! I think we should have more Moe characters, or something. Also, there aren't many new Mechas around. There are, like Gurren Lagann, and Mobile Suit Gundam 00, but we need more!!
