Wow, lots of new people since last night! Guess I'll join in and introduce myself then, too~

I'm listenforthelove, though I mostly go by Mizumi or Miz online. I'm 23 and from the Netherlands, but I'm am currently staying in Japan, returning here for the first time in four years. (I'm staying here until the end of May, so if I'm a little slow at first with responding to any topics, that's why.)

I have a BA in Japanese language and culture, though it's been a while since I graduated and I haven't been able to get a job in the field, so my Japanese skills aren't as good as I wish they were. No. 6 has helped me in many things, but also in keeping my language up to date, since I almost immediately ordered the novels after reading them online, haha. That's about a year and a half ago now, after my friend introduced me to the manga at the end of 2012.

I love to write stories, and I like drawing as well, though I'm less invested in the latter. But to be honest, No. 6 is very inspiring to me in both fields, so I've been drawing quite a lot again lately. Next I love to translate, if only to polish up my language skills. I've also been taking a liking to gaming the last couple of years, now that I can actually afford the consoles, though I'm mostly stuck on JRPGs. And last but not least, I love reading!

As said, a dear friend of mine introduced me to No. 6 a year and a half ago, then only the manga, but she directed me to the novels once I got too frustrated about it still running and it's becoming a slight obsession since.

Ehm, hi to you all! -waves-
