My favorite anime list currently includes Cowboy Bebop, Fushigi Yuugi, Getbackers, Hellsing, Trigun, Outlaw Star, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Fruits Basket.
As far as manga goes, MARS is far and away my favorite. I'm getting into Fruits Basket, and I have a few volumes of Fushigi Yuugi, Sailor Moon, and the first volume of Utena.
Favorite video games are Final Fantasy VII, X, and even though it's silly and girly I kind of like FFX-2, too. I like DDR but I'm not omfgsouberl33t!!1 at it that I compete in tournaments. I used to be able to do 5-foot normal level stuff. Pump it Up is fun, too, albeit a little strange to get used to for DDR kids like myself.
I'm in Columbia and have attended Otakon since 2000. :D If you're not active on their BBS yet, what are you waiting for? I like cosplay and am jealous of people who can sew, although I won 3rd place in the Novice category at Otakon 2001 for my Chichiri costume (I was in a group with a Hotohori, Nuriko, Tasuki and Suzaku).
http://board.otakon.com/ is the address. You have to have an account to post but you can read most of the important stuff even without one.
Hope to see you at the con!
