Recently, I’ve been asked to do one of these questionnaires that people on Tumblr like to do so much.
I won’t have anything important to say here, so this post is only interesting to those of you who want to get to know me a bit better.
To the one who sent me the questions (sorry, you didn’t leave a name, so I’ll just call you Anon): I can’t, or rather don’t want to, answer to all of the questions you sent me, because talking about too personal stuff on the internet is not really my thing. So please don’t be angry at me for leaving out some of the questions.
Eye color: Brown
Hair color: Dark Blond
Righty or Lefty: Righty
What do you like about yourself?
I like to believe that I’m a nice person, but that might be too general.
Is there anything you collect?
I don’t really think you can call that collecting, but I’m slowly getting more and more yuri manga and doujinshi, and it’s starting to fill up my bookshelf. I’m kind of proud of it, even though I don’t show this to many of my friends.
Do you have tattoos or piercings?
Nope. Never had and never will have.
What are you listening to right now?
Ice Lady by Lila’c Records
What time do you usually get up?
6-7 AM on weekdays and sometime around 10 AM on the weekend
What game are you currently playing?
I was playing the new SonoHana game just a moment ago, but since this isn’t translated yet, I had a really hard time playing it. Other than that, I’m planning to get the new Mario Kart, but unfortunately it was already sold out when I tried to buy it yesterday.
What did you do for your last Birthday?
I went to a bigger city with a friend and enjoyed some Japanese food~
Name something you CANNOT wait for.
I’m eagerly awaiting the new Super Smash Bros., but that will unfortunately take some more time. Other than that, I’ve ordered some doujinshi and a CD from Japan, so I also can’t wait for that to finally arrive here.
Last time you saw all of your siblings at the same time?
I only have one sister, and I see her pretty much every day.
What is one thing you wish you could change about your life?
If I could, there are many things I’d like to change about my life, but the list might be too long.
Who’s getting on your nerves right now?
If you could go back in time, how far back would you go?
I’m not really that interested in experiencing for myself what happened ___ years ago. Also, I don’t have anything in particular that I regret so much that I’d like to change it, so I probably wouldn’t do that.
Out of everything in the world, what do you wish for the most?
This is such a lame answer, but it’s simply happiness.
Are you afraid of falling in love?
No, I don’t really see why you should be afraid of that. Well, if you’re single that is.
What is your biggest fear?
I fear a lot of things, but to keep it simple: I’m afraid of all kinds of insects, and this year, I already had a lot of them in my room…. Urgh.
What is the most fun thing you did within the last week?
Sadly, I haven’t done anything that was particularly fun, but I’ll hopefully go to an amusement park in a few days.
What was/is your worst subject in school?
I really sucked at both physics and chemistry.
What was/is your best subject in school?
I loved English and Arts.
Most visited webpage?
Probably the Dynasty Reader, Twitter, and YouTube.
I’d simply like to enjoy my work.
Name one thing you want to accomplish within the next few years.
I’d like to visit Japan. This has been my dream for years now, but since it’s pretty expensive I’ve never actually done it. Right now, this seems even further away than it was some time ago, but I’d really love to go there as soon as possible.
Do You Believe In…
I’d really like to do so, but I don’t.
Love at first sight?
Mokou x Keine (Touhou)
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
Girl Friends by Milk Morinaga
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Anime of this Season?
Akuma no Riddle and No Game No Life
The Butterfly Effect
2 Broke Girls
I think I haven’t done one of these questionnaires in years now, so this was pretty fun, and I really enjoyed answering all these questions. Thanks for suggesting this, Anon.
If you have more questions that haven’t been answered already, feel free to ask me~
How could you write purple as your favorite color, when I've been led to believe it's most definitely pink?!?! 😛
And I have a question of my own: Since it's been over a year since you started this blog, it's evolved a little bit. How do you see it evolving over the next year? Will we see you possibly trying some new things out, much like this Q&A?
I know a person who likes to wear pink dresses, but that dearest chime- I mean Rock The Vogt is surely not me 😀
What I would want to do, is working on more doujin and manga releases.
In 2014 I have only released one doujin so far, while I worked on so many in 2013.
Also, I'd like to have some guest reviews and you already know that you're invited to make one 😉
i loved ur answers. thanks
Oh, so you were the one who sent me the questions?
In this case, thanks a lot 🙂
thanx for sharing lena k 🙂 also question what is your favorite video game console of all time
That's easy, it's the gamecube.
It was my first console that I ever owned and I seriously couldn't stop playing.
So many good games~
How did you end up missing the new Mario Kart 8? Leeeenaaaaaaa, I can't believe it! I got my Collectors Edition on friday. Shame on you! 😉
Do you need a copy, I probably can get you one, they are not sold out in my Country. 🙂
Haha, I can't believe it myself. I didn't think it would be that popular, so I didn't buy it right in the morning, but in the evening, which then turned out to be a really bad idea.
Ah well, thanks for the help, but I hope I can get it sometime next week 🙂
Thumbs up for a fellow video game player and purple color lover.
Awesome second survey. It was just as neat as the 50 questions one…or was it the ABC one? Probably the latter.
What are you listening to right now?
>Ice Lady by Lila’c Records
º﹃º I somehow had to grin at this answer 😀
but ohh…it's kind of interesting to read such Q&A surveys, more stuff to fill in your profile, lol 😛 But now it seems to be harder to get more information about you by stalking…hm..
I think it was the ABC Awards one, but now I wonder what the 50 questions are.
I like stuff like this, so maybe I'll do that too 😛
Lol just stop being a stalker and ask questions if you're that interested 😛
Maybe you should answer these questions as well?
Or how about I add some… “interesting” ones myself? 😉
what? it's no fun 😛 And I don't have any questions, a stalker keeps every information he/she can find 😉 everything is valuable, lol, creepy, isn't it?
and what? ehem, no, I hope no one will ever force me to do such a q&a survey… D: lol, what do you mean with “interesting”? Ah wait, if I ask, I may regret having asked you… 😛
oh ya i had that feeling too when i was playing the gamecube
So I guess getting the new Super Smash Bros is going to be in your plans once it comes out eh? Do you plan on getting both versions or just one?
Also, why don't you believe in miracles?!?! ;_;
You already know really well what I mean with “interesting” 😛
And yes, your stalking it creepy, but I know I just sounded creepy as well, so we're even 😉
Oh yes, that is the sole reason why I got a Wii U in the first place.
I will only got one though, but I don't know which one.
I have never seen a miracle happen, that's why 😛
I have the feeling that these “interesting” questions would go into a really… weird direction 😛
Hopefully I'll never get to read or even have to answer them… 😀
lol, a balance of creepiness? I can live with that 🙂
I still hope for a Zelda Wii U, but I guess we will have to wait until the E3 next week. Come on Nintendo, we all know you need a blockbuster title on the Wii U, so bring it on! 😀
Oh yeah, I really like playing video games. Almost as much as I like women. ;-P
Hold on there! *getting some popcorn*
Now go, let me see those “interesting” questions… ⓪益⓪
Haha, at least you're having fun, I bet it's not that fun for poor Mai 😛
I'll spare her this time, but next time, I'll be merciless
Prepare yourself, Mai!
Super Smash Bros. will hopefully be this one game that helps Nintendo get out of this deep hole that it has been digging itself, but we'll only see about that later this year.
And haha, what a nice comparison 😛
So,like,with mere curiosity, are you bisexual? Does your Yuri obsession affect your relation choices? Are you platonic? Or are you just going to wait and see if your potential partner comes along? Sorry for sounding so intrusive Xp
Oooooh, what bitter disappointment. You are too nice Lena, Mai deserves something cruel, not your merciful behavior. ;-D
But now I am very curious about these “interesting” questions. Maybe I should ask you myself, instead of depending on lazy Mai. 🙂
I've been in a relationship with a girl for almost 5 years, so you could say I was with her ever since I got even interested in dating.
I guess people would call me a lesbian for that, but I think if the right guy comes along, I would be ok with that as well.
And don't worry about sounding intrusive, because you don't 😛
Haha seems like you're really interested in this 😛
Well, Mai wouldn't approve of that, so I must unfortunately turn you down, you can totally blame Mai for that 😉
I am interested in people, and I like to ask the uncommon questions. 🙂
Well, I will now blame Mai88 for this situation. *cough slightly*
Mai, you are a lazy, cowardly BUT highly talented translator. You are a shame and a blessing for the yuri community. Hmmm… But if I think about it, you might be a real hottie… oooh yeah… ⓪益⓪
What? Shoot, got distracted in blaming by some inappropriate fantasies.
;-D Well, I might not be good in blaming after all.
I am done here, enough trouble for this warm summer evening. 🙂
Good night folks!
whaat? why blaming me D: and why would you know that I'm lazy and cowardly? (and I'm not that good at translating *cough*)
and what? Dunno what to reply on this… 😛
You had a hard time deciding how to reply to this, hadn't you Mai? 😛
By the way Anjealoni, nice fantasy you have there 😉
Mai was totally dumbstruck when reading this comment and I had a good laugh.
That was such a memorable moment 😀
I told you I like to ask the uncommon questions. Well, this was more of a surprise attack, but still… 🙂
Let me explain the first questions of yours mai. Lazy because you stopped answering in this comments (my popcorn got really old and chewy). Cowardly because you didn't ask the “interesting” questions (since I am not allowed to). The talented translator was just a honest compliment for your work.
About the other stuff…. *big smile* I leave you in the dark about that. Since I am the oldest one of the three of us (I assume the 88 stands for your year of birth, and not for something related in the dark past of germany), I will now use the right of the silencetreatment. ;-p
This is such a nice summer day, get out and enjoy the sun. Oh my, some pool pictures are appearing in my mind… ⓪益⓪

You have a girl and like it. Think you will like sex with the guy? Do you prefer one gender over the other? Curious, are you into hetero-H manga?
I imagine the lucky guy must appreciate yuri alongside you. no? Is the guy not liking yuri a dealbreaker? In relationship with a dude would yuri be included? 😉 You into dudes and chicks physically/emotionally/sexual/romantic?
Dude hope I didn't take my curiosity too far. Girls that are into yuri are like rare! It's interesting to ask you lena. You don't gotta answer 🙂
Let me just answer to the questions that I feel comfortable answering and that I can actually answer 😛
First of all, I'm not in a relationship anymore and I think I do prefer being with a girl, but then again, I never really thought about that.
I had a crush on a guy when I was younger and some years ago I fell in love with a girl.
If I had to choose, I would probably go for girls, but as I said, I don't think I can only fall in love with one gender.
And yes, I have read hetero manga and I still occasionally do, but I prefer yuri now, and that probably won't change 😛
Also, I think in a relationship, having similar or the same interests is probably necessary to enjoy being with each other for longer than just a few hours. So yes, if I date someone, then I'd like that person to at least enjoy what I like to certain degree.
But that's just the way I think.
Since I don't know whether Mai will show her face again in here, let me at least tell you that the 88 in Mai's name doesn't stand for her year of birth.
But even so, you're still the oldest 😛
Also, if I can say so, feel free to tease Mai as much as you want, this is hilarious 😀
In the future you see yourself marrying a dude or chick? I know girls who dated chicks but married dudes. Idk that's people I had school with. It's a good idea to try it. Date some, see how you like it with guys. Big decision for you.
I'm curious, imagine the usual sex acts with a guy you love, and the girl. Which feels better? Say you date a dude, think you can talk openly about sex/what you like/want to try with him? Does a ripped dude's body turn you on? I'm a straight guy, it's chicks only. I can't imagine being into a dude. Guess it don't work xd
What het manga you into? Here is a secret. I have little in common with most chicks I date. The trick is to listen what she got to say and make her laugh. It works 😉
I don't know who I see myself with in the future. It's just something I don't think about, because I don't see a need to do so yet.
Also, I'm not dating people just to try out how it works. Maybe that's just me, but I'd only date someone, if I already had a crush/was is love with that person.
I feel like it's a bad idea to answer to some of your questions, so sorry for that 😛
I'm currently reading Deadman Wonderland and Shingeki no Kyojin.
Well, they don't focus on a heterosexual relationship, but it's also not yuri, so I hope that counts 😛
What do you look like? 😉 I don't want you to upload a picture of yourself but maybe you have an anime character who looks like you? Or you could make an anime character with rinmarugames's character creator? 😀 That'd be great and maybe u would have some fun too! ^_^
I have blond straight hair that reach a little further than my shoulders.
Also, I have black glasses and brown eyes.
At this point, I already don't know how to describe myself any further 😛
I don't know about this character creator but it sounds like fun so I might give it a try 😛
Here you go 🙂
Thanks will try this out 🙂
Over a year later, and much has changed. There have been 6 more doujin releases since your comment, and it looks like there could be more on the way. There have also been 10 guest reviews, with one very lucky individual given the privilege to stand alongside you here at YuriReviews. 😉
A year later, and I'll ask again. How do you see YR evolving in the next year? It seems like everything you wanted to have happen did happen~
P.S. — Why didn't you put dirty blond instead of dark blond for your hair color?!?! It's technically a much more accurate assessment. 😀
Dirty blond? Hey now, though you might be right here 😛
But to answer your question, you'll simply find out in the next super secret poll that will hopefully happen very soon, not like you don't already know that 😉
More than one year later, and much has changed again. There have been 8 more doujin releases since your reply last year, and it looks like there might eventually be more on the way. We’ve also gone through some drastic changes, but we’ve become stronger because of them~
So another year later, and I’ll ask yet again. How do you see YR evolving in the next year?
