I'm Anna, or Yoshilove9, or Yoshihonk, sometimes Sol, whatever you wanna call me
I'm a huge nerd

I also like other video games such as the Mother/Earthbound series, and I may also sometimes play the Paper Mario games
A few other animes I like include Soul Eater, Attack on Titan, Madoka Magica, Kill la Kill, Deathnote, etc.

I guess that's all for now !! !
