  7. What do you think the future holds for the DAS? ~I think that DAS will start to branch out even farther until it expands to be widely known almost everywhere at least along the east coast!

  9. Conventions attended and/or staffed?
    ~Zero. I wish like a bajillion! or at least two.
  10. Have you ever named a pet/computer/insert word here after an anime or Asian character? If so, which and why? ~Yes!! I had two hamsters. one was named Kirara and the other was Kikyo. Kirara because she was caramel colored kinda like her just darker. I named Kikyo that because she was very hyper and powerful at the time I got her. plus they had to have matching names[show, first letter] and i am very fond of the show its the first anime I every watched.

  11. What theme or institution in anime should be decreased or increased and why?

    Decreased: ~I think that stereotypical scenarios should be decreased,along with harem type anime because its annoying to see that every school girl wears the shortest skirt possible,has the biggest boobs possible and when there is a hot guy around they throw themselves at him [sometimes literally]!

    ~But on a different note I really don't think that anything should change because it is what it is! and that's what makes anime so fun, the random stuff that happens just because it can and when everyone sees something and all are thinking the same thing about it but just keep their mouths shut cause they know that every else knows as well. <3
