Nice to meet you, I’m known as Yumeka in the online community. Anime has been the love of my life since the early 2000s, and I’ve always been a fan of animation in general. I graduated from college with a B.A. in East Asian Languages & Literature (country of emphasis is Japan) and I’m still continuing my study of Japanese through self-study. I’m currently working semi-full time as a supermarket cashier. I live in the Los Angeles county of southern California with my mom and cats.

Other non-anime things I like:
Besides anime and Japan/Japanese, my other big interest is animals, particularly animal welfare. I have another section of my domain name called Animal Quotes, where I host a large collections of quotes and excerpts relating to animal advocacy. I also volunteer at my local animal shelter whenever I have the time.
