  1. Name: Jenny

  2. DAS Position/Role: Founding member/Former North Chapter Prez/Zenkaikon Cosplay Dept

  3. Location: Newark, DE

  4. What are your favorite animes, music, and Asian cinema?
    Right now I'm enjoying reading Deathnote. I dont get to watch a ton of anything really but I do enjoy reading manga. I'm a fan of pretty much anything that CLAMP has done, Kare Kano, Kodocha, Aria, and similar titles. I also like domestic titles such as Shutterbox and Dramacon (which just ended *sob sob*). My favorite of the asian movies I've seen would either be 'Hang the Red Lantern' or 'Battle Royale'.

  5. Hobbies outside of anime? I'm really into Industrial/Goth music and fashion. Most anytime I'm not at work (and sometimes when I am) I can be found in some pretty creative outfits because I also love to sew. I also adore reading good fantasy/horror books and going to the movies.

  6. What do you like best about the DAS? I think that it is really great for the younger fans. When I was in middle school and high school I didn't have half of the guidance in the fandom or friends of the same mindset that DAS is now able to provide.

  7. What do you think the future holds for the DAS? An anime fan army of doom!!! That apparently would duel using Uno cards from what I hear.

  8. Do you cosplay? If so, what are your favorite costume(s)

    I LOVE cosplay. My favorite costumes that I've done to date are I-No of Guilty Gear and Lulu from FFX. I'm planning to do a Valentine (Also of Guilty Gear) for my next convention (whichever one that might be). I'm also always up for doing groups. So if you're interested in something let me know.

  9. Conventions attended and/or staffed?

    Otakon 2000-2004, 2006-2007, Nekocon 2005, Kosaikon 2005, Zentrancon cosplay staff, Zenkaikon 2006-2007 cosplay staff

  10. Have you ever named a pet/computer/insert word here after an anime or Asian character? If so, which and why?
    For pets... I've had Gendo and right now I have Freya and Elda (all pet rats), there is Kuro... my mostly black cat, and Sumomo was my old laptop but she got fried.

  11. What theme or institution in anime should be decreased or increased and why?
    I think that I'm the only fangirl out there who doesn't like Yaoi. Shonen-ai is adorable but Yaoi is just a no.
