I am totally uninterested in manga or anime. I don't know a thing about it. A friend decided to give me a crash course, hoping I would come to share her interest, and we spent an evening watching a few films, and she lent me some books...but it is just not my thing. I am old enough that I did not grow up with the anime/manga that is available today. I am a competent seamstress, and basically I see them as a muse, I like dolls to sew, paint and make jewelry for.
