Tell us a little about yourself
I'm a college graduate with a BA in Japanese. I enjoy playing RPGs and fighting games. Lastly, I'm a huge fan of Top Gear and Formula One.

My favorite actors/actresses
I consider pro-wrestlers to be actors also since they play roles. I'll go ahead and list The Rock since he was pretty much the one wrestler in the WWE who had the best mic skills. Watch his promos and you'll understand why. For anime seiyuu, my favorite would have to be Ayako Kawasumi. I really like her voice because it can sound really cold, but elegant at the same time.
