I played Yu-Go-Yo, and pokemon, plus watched Sailor Moon! :D That's what got me into anime/manga, I was like 5.

Comment by Jasmine Salters on February 11, 2011 at 9:56am

I'd like to learn more about Mr. Andre. I met him at Otakon, he kept me company while I waited for my ride to show up. He was very nice. He said no one had ever spent any extended time with one of the Otaku 6 before. I was surprised. I thought it was just common courtesy. He also taught me how to play YuGiOh, which was cool.


We seem to have the same goals too. Hmm...

i would love to get to know Diana because she just sounds like an awesome person over all!!! xD and i love it that she makes costumes under 20$ and i would love to know how to do that! xD from Albuquerque, New Mexico!! AGOContestDay4
Comment by Samuel Hayes on February 10, 2011 at 7:23pm

I had one answer, but after reading about each of the Six, I want to hang out with Meera, probably over a nice dinner. I also always carry my DS, but I only play one game on it (hint: still gotta catch them all), and I love ramen. I don't know who Caroline is, or what her blue dress is, but I too like to cosplay, so it could work out well. Now that I'm done being a stupid dreamer creep, I hope I win.

I would like to talk a little to all of them more I was shocked when I went to otakon and suprised when I walked up to the bus and everyone reconized me. I got talk to each of them a bit but it I wanted to be able to talk to them more and ask them more stuff about them and become better friends with them.
Comment by Carolina Myers on February 10, 2011 at 6:00pm
I would love to learn more about Sully! CLEARLY. I mean this guy is my kind of guy! Its like, he's just so optimistic about everything just look at the smile! he's just like, "YEAH". I thought it was really interesting how he loved art, but at the same time didn't mind just getting down in the dirt and playing outside. I make faces in the mirror too sully, haha. plus, he likes anime! He sounds like such an interesting character! From Fairfax VA. AGOContestDay4

Honestly, I can't decide between Stephan or Sully. They sound cool and they both just seem so interesting, y'know? Then again, I'm always just incredibly indecisive....
