Shino Contemplation Edit 1 (2880x1620)

Hi! It’s your chivalry of shotas, Shotaro, your resident shotacon, fudanshi, and BL addict. Unfortunately, I was deposed as your elected shota ambassador, but all is not lost!

So, how did I get into anime? Well, I grew up watching Digimon and Yu-Gi-Oh! as a child but never recognized it as a Japanese product. It was only until I started university in 2011 that I watched my first anime: Death Note. Since then, I’ve watched 500+ titles over six years, and here I am now!

  4. Machiavellianism, sociopathy, & sadomasochists
