Sara got her start watching anime before she even knew what anime was. As a fan of Madeleine L’Engle, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and the like, she had no trouble making the leap into full anime fandom upon entering high school. Using the stories to learn more about the culture and society behind them, she eventually found her way into this group via volunteering in the local maid cafe from 2010 to 2012, and convention staff from 2011 to 2013. During that time, her interests gradually shifted toward the live action segment of Japanese media through tokusatsu and eventually also included other Japanese “dramas”. Don’t be fooled, though. Despite being a huge mystery geek, she’ll take recommendations on just about anything (within reason), and is always happy to share her favorites with anyone who offers a willing ear.
