Meet Amanda
Amanda, or Manda, has been a nerd from a young age. She’s old enough to remember anime on the SciFi Channel (before it was SyFy) and stumbled into her love of anime-based musicals and stage plays completely by accident, but since discovering Hakuouki and all of it’s various adaptations has found herself overwhelmed by disgustingly attractive and talented stage play actors (Yazaki Hiroshi, Ota Motohiro, and Someya Toshiyuki in particular).

When she’s not busy tending to her wonderful family and her translation-related day job, Manda loves to translate and subtitle any and everything related to her interests. Having studied Japanese for well over a decade she has traveled to the country twice and is prepping for another trip in the spring. You can always find her on Tumblr where she is better known as Masayume and uses Twitter as a means to keep up with her favorite actors. She loves to chat about anything and everything but is always most happy when talking about Hakuouki, the Messiah Project or her favorite actors so stop on by and say hi! (๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)

Meet Melanie

Melanie is one of those anime fans that didn’t actually discover anime until she was in her 20s. With Kuroshitsuji being her first anime fandom, she discovered Kuromu and other stage plays pretty quickly, and has been hooked ever since.

Along side butai interests, she also enjoys cosplaying, writing, Disney, art and generally anything that involves getting creative. Her current favorite stage actors are Mitsu Murata and Tamaki Yuki, and she would gladly sell every possession she owns in order to see them in person. You can find her on Tumblr and Facebook as AristocraticTrash, feel free to stop by and say hello!

Meet Melissa
20-something cosplayer with a passion for J-idols, Tenimyu, and related stage work. My introduction to stage work came from Tenimyu back in 2007. Since then, i have supported multiple actors, and followed their careers as they’ve grown. My current bias are Kato Kazuki and Yoshihide Sasaki.

Meet Bane

Bane is the type of person that when she finds something that she loves, she won’t stop talking about it. Whether its anime, stage actors, or Japanese idols, when she finds something that she loves, it sticks around for a long time.

When Bane isn’t yelling about something, she also enjoys writing, blogging, watching Japanese variety shows, and collecting merchandise from all of her fandoms. Her favorite actors include Kanesaki Kentarou, Nakagauchi Masataka, Kamiki Ryunosuke, and Sakiyama Tsubasa. Feel free to message her on tumblr or twitter!

Meet trix/Jenna

The night owl who has a love for collecting anime merch, going to cons to cosplay, and draw when the motivation hits just right. She has a good amount of knowledge about seiyuu’s, but is ready to have just as much knowledge about stage actors! Her first ever stage play to watch was the Yowamushi Pedal stage play. With trying to continue her studies in Japanese, she hopes to become a freelance translator one day as well.

Swears that Daiya no Ace is her livelihood, with her favorite character Isashiki Jun being the light of her life and aims to create the best ita bag collection for him all of North America has ever seen. She adores the baseball series very dearly but knows, likes, and loves many other series and shows too to make her well rounded.
