Names JaneMichelle I am the raging transgender queen of the universe. Im a 20something from Pennsylvania living in Chicago. At heart Im just a gay girl who loves cartoons. Im a freelance animation writer which is a fancy way of saying I talk way way too much about anime but sometimes I get paid for it. I try to look at the medium seriously while also always emphasizing the joy of watching and the personal element of connection.
