My name is Vraie, I'm 26 (ack, I'm old!) and I work in a library in rural England. (The place where Public Transport forgot!).

I've collected My Little Pony since I was two, Jem since six years ago and I've also become a fanatic of Japanese anime, manga, music and seiyuu. (I think it's in my blood, cos my mother taught English to Japanese people for a long long time!). I'm currently studying Japanese (and it's proving a lot of fun!)

My favourite animes are Tenchi Muyou (because it was the first I saw back in 94, ah the memories), and Fushigi Yuugi - the latter of which started my Seiyuu obsessing :) (All of my listed favourite Seiyuu are involved in Yuugi in some way:
Midorikawa-san - Tamahome
Hayashi-san - Tasuki
Okiayu-san - Nakago (Drama CD)
Miki-san - Yuuki Keisuke
Koyasu-san - Hotohori
Seki-san - Chichiri

My B-list of Seiyuu that I respect/like/admire/whatever is slowly growing, and is as follows (and in brackets after their names is the character of theirs I most like!):
Morita Masakazu (Hihara Kazuki, Kiniro no Koruda)
Taniyama Kishou (Tsukimori Len, Kiniro no Koruda...although Natsuki from GIZOKU is also neat)
Kishio Daisuke (Yunoki Azuma, Kiniro no Koruda)
Ishida Akira (Abe no Yasuaki, Harukanaru Toki no Naka De)
Inoue Kazuhiko (Yuki Eiri, Gravitation)
Morikawa Toshiyuki (Ran Shuuei, Saiunkoku Monogatari)
Hiyama Noboyuki (Ri Kouyuu, Saiunkoku Monogatari. Also Hikitsu from Yuugi Genbu Kaiden)
Takahashi Naozumi (Inori, Harukanaru Toki no Naka De)
Yamaguchi Kappei (Sakuma Ryuuichi, Gravitation)
Miyata Kouki (Nagareyama Shimon, Harukanaru Toki no Naka De)
Itou Kentarou (Tsuchiura Ryoutarou, Kiniro no Koruda)
Yuuki Hiro (Tsukiyono Omi, Weiss Kreuz)
Ishikawa Hideo (Kanazawa-sensei, Kiniro no Koruda)

I'm also hooked on Weiss Kreuz the anime (only Kapitel, not so much Gluehen) and the associated music.

And then there's the E.M.U/M thing. Thanks to my Yuugi fangirling, I'm also a big fan of E.M.U and consequently Sotsugyou M, for which I've dedicated a section of my webserver space known as "Rakuen". Rather than babble a lot about it here in this small space, the website link from this profile should take you into Rakuen (heh!). For anyone not familiar with the M thing, it's a story (manga/drama CD/novel and consequently 2 ep OVA based) surrounding five boys in their final year of high school at an exclusive boys boarding school. The band "E.M.U" featured the five Seiyuu for the main characters, which were Okiayu Ryoutarou (Takagi Shimon), Midorikawa Hikaru (Arai Tougo), Hayashi/Kanna Nobutoshi (Nakamoto Shou), Ishikawa Hideo (Katou Yuusuke) and Sakaguchi Daisuke (Shimura Mikimaro). The stories cover pretty much every aspect of real life for the boys (angst, yaoi, jokes, games, hardships, friendships, rivalries, music) as well as a few unreal life moments...LOL :) For more information visit Rakuen, because I could babble for hours about M and if I did that LJ would probably explode!

M obsessing aside, I collect music and video performances, interviews etc by the seiyuu on my list, as well as songs from my favourite animes, so I'm quite specific :D I'm probably most obsessive about Yuugi stuff since it coincides so well with my seiyuu addiction. But I'm good at developing new obsessions. ^_^.

My current project is to try and brainwash as many people as possible to Sotsugyou M, hence the change of URL on my website...^_^

I write fanfic, but only (at present!) for Tenchi Muyou and Fushigi Yuugi (all of which is on FFnet under this name). And I have two other incomplete and random websites for anime - RyokoMuyo and Otome-No-Kokoro (Tenchi and Yuugi respectively!)
