- Aug 10, 2006Hmmm... Let's see- Okay, I go by the name of Baka Gaijin30 (which
basically translates to "Stupid Foreigner 30"), and I chose the name
because it fits my sense of humor. I'm 32 years old, and I first was
exposed to anime as a young child through Battle of the
Planets/Gatchaman, and as an adult through the original OVA of
Bubblegum Crisis. I think it was through reading BGC fanfiction that
I first became exposed to yuri, and have been infatuated with it
ever since. My favorite parings are probably Haruka and Michiru, as
well as Ami and Makoto from Sailor Moon. I also write fanfiction (a
lot of it parodying my favorite series).
I think one of the things I find most appealing about yuri is that
there's a tenderness and beauty in the best stories that's missing
in a lot of hetero stories.
Anyways, that's it for now. I'm currently writing a Strawberry Panic
spoof, so I'll be sure to let you all know when the next chapter is
done. Bye ^^
