Hmm…I really don’t know what to say about myself…let’s see:

My name? Well it’s Kelly. :3

Why kelakagandy? Well, when I was in middle school, my friends and I were MAJOR Lord of the Rings nerds, and some of said friends started writing a screenplay (a seriously wacked out one) version of the series staring, of course, us (yes, it was a terrible idea, we all admit it now). At the time they called me Kel sometimes to iritate me, because they knew I hated it. Since I was supposed to be Gandalf in said updated version of LotR, they gave me an ultimatum one day when I got pissy: Kel or Gandy (Needless to say, I chose Kel). A few weeks later I was sitting in front of the computer trying to think of a screen name for AIM, and the only thing I could think of was kelakagandy, and it just stuck. You might recognize it from Gaia, LJ, MAL, here, and anywhere else you’ve encountered a kelakagandy; it’s not a common screen name after all though sometimes I use spaces or underscores (kel aka gandy/kel_aka_gandy).

I almost always finish my sentences online with an emoticon/smiley. xD  <=case in point

I live in a northern/border state in the US. Depends on if I’m at college or not…technically, school is in the north and home is a border state. :3 This of course going by Civil War state definitions. xD

I’m going to be a senior in college in the fall; I go to school in Indiana (not IU though).

I love manga/anime (though manga moreso). I have about 400+ manga, but only about 15 anime DVDs, most of which I won from Funimation in the contest (yes, I won that!). I really prefer to buy manga, since it’s cheaper and I’ve always preferred reading. : D

I also adore light novels and, so expect to see lots of light novels reviews here as well.

My friends are probably going to laugh their asses off when they hear about this.

I love Arina Tanemura’s manga, so expect a lot of Arina Tanemura info/reviews here. :] Other manga-ka favorites are CLAMP, Natsumi Matsumoto, Peach-Pit, Ai Yazawa, and Kiyoko Arai.

Um…I guess if you have any questions ask and I’ll see if I can answer (as in, I’m not going to answer where I live, ect., but if you have a legitimate question about me, then feel free to ask).

    I’ve always wanted to start a blog but I’m always afraid that no one will read it and I’ll just be typing away for no one… >.>

      That’s what I always worried about! As long as you comment on other people’s blogs though, you’ll eventually get people reading yours!!! : D

      Thanks!!! : D
      I made it by just kind of messed around in Gimp (it’s a free image editing software that’s comparable to photoshop). I love it, and the best about it is that it’s totally and completely free!! : D

    just curious, what college do you go to?

      I’d actually rather not say, sorry. I like to keep my full location secret, though I do go to school in Indiana, like I’ve mentioned a couple times before. :]

    just by reading the first paragraph of this “about me” page already tells me you are an awesome blogger :)
    I like to end my sentences with emoticons too, because if i don’t they just feel naked, and i like to dress up my sentences xD
    btw, AWESOME BLOG ! I must add to blogroll because i am still a manga freshmen :)

    My questions are
    1. how do you make the icons for the comments in wordpress?(nice icon by the way ;D)
    2.Does Otaku actually sound cooler than nerd?
    3.Who’s you favourite Mangaka?

    • April 5, 2010 8:49 pm

      Thanks~ :D
      Exactly!! It’s just weird to me to have too many sentences without an emoticon! xD

      1) In the gray bar at the top of wordpress (I think it only shows up when you’re logged in), you can hover over “my account” and there’s a button that says “edit profile” and then on that page there’s something that says “change your gravatar” and from there you can upload a pic to use. :D (and thanks, again~ It’s Togame from Katanagatari)

      2) I actually think otaku is worse…I mean, it has negative connotations in Japanese, so I feel like it’s silly for people to use it. I much prefer nerd or geek or really anything else. :] But hey, that might just be me. xD

      3) Favorite mangaka? Oh gosh, so many to choose from…I really, really like Arina Tanemura, but Yuu Watase, CLAMP, Natsumi Matsumoto, and Ai Yazawa are definite favorite too. :]

    Ok a)you are more manga savvy than I realized. I mean, I knew, but I didn’t really KNOW.

    b) your banner right now is too effing cute.

    c) I am not laughing my ass off. Does this mean we’re not really friends?

    d) this thing is pretty cool. this….this “blog” thing or whatever you whippersnappers call it.

    e) i lurve you and all of the above

    p.s. I don’t think I’ll have a cute icon next to my comment and that’s sad :(

    Hello~lol I just created a blog and was looking around for other blogs, and found this one! I really like it! XDDDD
    Lord of the Rings, huh? And manga? Two things I love x]
    Oooh, you like Arina Tanemura too? I can’t WAIT to see how Fudanjuku Monogatari is going to turn out!! :X

    • July 18, 2011 8:53 am

      Hi~ :D Glad you’re enjoying my blog. :3
      Yup~ Two things that are fantastic!
      I LOVE Arina Tanemura. I have all her manga that’s been released in English and some of it in Japanese as well. I’m really curious about Fudanjuku Monogatari as well. Mostly I’m wondering if she’ll treat the girls as girls dressed as boys or just as boys. It should be interesting.

        Yes, of course I am >:D
        Ohhh, really? Wow! That’s awesome XDDDD I have most of it, but I’m still missing CMX’s Jeanne T_T and some volumes of Gentlemen’s Alliance…
        Yeah…well, it would be much more funny if they were girls dressed as boys, but I know whatever it is she’ll make it great! :D but I still don’t know exactly what Fudanjuku is…a band? An idol group? lol XD but since it’s a Japanese group, nobody in the US will know about it[unless they’re Japanese >:D] so….yeah….
