Hi! I'm Kristen, although you can call me Mirai if you like, as that’s my internet and cosplay handle. I'm a strange young woman whose main hobbies are watching TV/movies/anime, reading books and manga, listening to music, surfing the internet, learning new languages, and cosplay. I am basically a geek/nerd/dork, with a Bachelors of Art degree in Japanese and Spanish, and I have a Masters in Library and Information, with a concentration is archival studies.
My all-time favorite anime is Gundam, and I have seen every series. I love the original Mobile Suit Gundam as well as Gundam SEED. I love all most every Gundam series (yes, that includes both UC and AU series). My top favorite characters are Murrue and Mwu and Mirai and Bright. My favorite non-Gundam anime series is probably Legend of the Galactic Heroes. My main fandom nowadays is Downton Abbey (I am a big Anna x Bates shipper). I also love The X-Files, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Avengers, Avatar/Korra etc. I'm really into J-Pop, especially Hello!Project, and also the Eurovision Song Contest.
Add my to your friends list if you want, and I'll add you back! My journal is friends only, so please leave a comment here. But don't worry, I don't bite! I love making new friends! :D I don't always comment on my friends' entries, but I do read all of them, even the long ones. Sometimes I don't know what to say (or some has already said it), or I'm in a rush, but don't worry, I do read it!
I don't post as much as I used to, at least not friends only. I do make daily private entries with a list of bullet points about my day, so you may notice it says I have updated but you cannot see those entries. Fear not, it's drivel you don't need to see. The posts that you will see are mostly about cosplay nowadays. If you are more interested in my fandoms, you may add me on Tumblr, that's were most of my fandom social networking happens. My Downton Abbey Tumblr is here.
