My interest in Sailormoon started when I was around 14 years old but what really hooked me was my love of the first season villians. Even today my favorite anime character is Zoisite and I remain an ardent KunzitexZoisite shipper. Eventually I was able to get my hands on the subtitled versions of the show and from there my fandom grew from there.
I will also be part of alkrea's cosplay group (the group yet without a name) come May and Anime Central as Sailor Jupiter.
Yes, I am aware that the banner pimps another community. It was made by the lovely people there. And yes, I also find it hilariously ironic. :)
