Starting Out
Introduction
" The mind is everything. What you think you become"
-Buddha
Your complete anime persona takes account of your unique personality and appearance, and develops
and accentuates those traits which have a natural place in an anime life. Your individual characteristics,
aside from being developed in alignment with your "ideal" anime life, are also contrasted with a group
of friends, each also committed to developing an anime lifestyle and persona.
Together, individual similarities and differences help create a dynamic and fun group environment. And
since no anime lifestyle is complete without some exciting plot-line, the group is put into action going on
adventures, working on projects, and achieving goals together.
In chapter 1 , you will take an extensive quiz to help you determine what anime personality traits you
have. This will help you find your niche among the friends who will take the anime dream to the next
level, providing a context for your individual character to be fully realized.
In chapter 2 , you will lay the foundation for bringing the anime dream to it's ultimate manifestation
by structuring your group around a Group Focus. The Group Focus serves as a kind of plot-line within
which talents will be realized and adventures will be had.
In chapter 3 , you'll learn how to plan exciting adventures. From fun afternoons to overnight trips adventures of all sorts are discussed in detail, as well as how to make them affordable and safe.
Chapter 4 discusses ways to add anime magic to holidays. In addition to traditional Western holidays
that are also celebrated in Japan, common Japanese holidays, celebrated in Japan and in anime, will be
discussed. We will review ways to incorporate those holidays in your life through small celebrations with
your friends.
Chapter 5 discusses group projects - activities that you and your friends can work on together such as
making a group photo book, sewing costumes, and making anime style accessories. External resources
and how-tos are also provided.

Starting Out
" Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones
you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore, Dream, Discover."
–Mark Twain
Aiming to live your life to the fullest in the way of an anime hero or heroine may seem like a daunting
task. More than that however, it should be incredibly motivating, fun, and exciting. You are creating
your life. You can make it an adventure, but it helps to have guidance.
In the first book of this series, we will start you off on your way to creating the anime life of your
dreams.
First, you will take a host of personality assessments designed to determine what kind of anime hero or
heroine you are meant to be. The results should inspire you to develop yourself and your story in
accordance with the power and magic you already possess.
Next, we will discuss the focus. The focus is where you apply to time and talents as you become the best
you can be. The foci discussed will naturally involve adventures and parallels to the anime world.
Finally, we will discuss projects, adventures, and holidays that you and your friends can add fun and
memories to build deeper friendships and hence, a deeper personal story.
Guidelines:
Before you begin your journey through this book series, take note of a few guidelines that you should
follow when reading:
1. This book series does not condone or in any way support harmful actions to yourself or others.
Taking roleplay to the level of everyday life can be empowering, motivating, and ultimately deeply
rewarding. However, roleplay or anime role models should NEVER be used to justify harmful, cruel, or
malicious actions towards anyone, including yourself.
2. This book series does not condone or in any way support putting your safety or the safety of others at
risk.
Going on adventures, having fun with friends, and working hard to accomplish great things should never
compromise your safety or the safety of others. Be smart about the projects and adventures you
choose and always think things through.
3. Other than rules 1 and 2, there are no rules.
All of the suggestions in this book series are just that - suggestions. Remember that it's your life, your
anime life, and you ultimately decide how to put it together. Hopefully, the contents of this book series
will help you on your journey!
4. This is your book - revisions are welcome!
If you have any suggestions for subsequent editions of this book, email [email protected]
with your revision request.
Enjoy!
Chapter 1: Complete Anime Personality Assessment
"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful
personality and duplicate it."
- Bruce Lee
When you and your friends go out together, who is usually compared to the goofball main character
with the big appetite? Who shares most in common with the studious academic character? What about
the character who is constantly fighting with, or making fun of, the main protagonist, even though both
are good friends? Who is the elegant one? Who is the tomboy and who is ultra feminine? Who is the
most childish of the group? Who is the biggest flirt?
Acknowledging that the possibilities for character types are expansive, in the beginning of this book, we
will take you through an in-depth survey to see what character traits match you best, allowing you to
carve out your anime personality.
By letting friends take the quiz, they will likewise be able to design the character they are best suited to
in an anime lifestyle. Short descriptions of each trait and ways of enhancing that trait are suggested.
Before beginning the assessments, get a clean sheet of paper to mark the question numbers and your
answers.

Assessment 3: Your Element
Scoring for assessment 3 is as follows:
always = 2 points
often = 1 point
sometimes = 0 points
rarely = -1 point
never = -2 points
Each element has 39 questions and can receive a maximum score of 78 points.
Add your score for questions 1-39. This should be a number between -78 and 78. This is your
tree element score.
Add your score for questions 40 - 78. This should be a number between -78 and 78. This is your
fire element score.
Add your score for questions 79 - 117. This should be a number between -78 and 78. This is your
earth element score.
Add your score from questions 118 - 156. This should be a number between -78 and 78. This is
your metal element score.
Add your score from questions 157 - 195. This should be a number between -78 and 78. This is
your water element score.
Since each element is equally weighted in the exam, you can take a ratio of your score for each
element over your total score to determine your elemental makeup. That is,
To determine your elemental makeup:
1. Add up the total score from all questions. This is your total score.
2. Add up your score for each element. These are your element scores.
3. For each element take your element score, divide it by your total score and multiply by
100. This is your percentage score.
4. For example, if I receive a total score of 200 and an fire element score of 40, that
means I'm 40/200 x 100 = 20 % fire element.
You can have a negative percentage score. This means you are particularly lacking in that
element. You don't need to be strong in every element, but you do want healthy balance. A
negative percentage may indicate an unhealthy imbalance of elemental energy.

Small features of your personality can add a lot of character. The following personality features
are common in anime, so if you possess them, consider playing them up to enhance the anime
character in you.
All of the anime personality features described below, plus many additional ones, can be found
on the tv tropes wiki. For each personality feature (called a trope on the site) they also have an
extensive list of examples from anime.
Adorkable - You have dorky personality traits, yet in spite of this, or because of it, you are
charming or even adorable. Your dorky qualities may come from being socially inept, shy,
clumsy, an otaku, overly sweet, or some other subtle characteristics.

Anti-Hero - An anti-hero is a person with traits that are the opposite of those associated with a
traditional hero, but nevertheless seeks to make the world a better place or do some good.
There are several types of anti-hero. On the good end of the spectrum, an anti-hero can be a
person usually aligned with good but lacking all of the qualities of a hero. They may work to
improve themselves and become a more classic hero, or they maintain their anti-hero traits.
Somewhere in the middle of the spectrum of anti-hero types are those who side with good, and
perhaps have positive goals they are working on, but they are generally mean, rude, or cold to
others. They definitely have pessimistic and cynical perspectives and may even be humorless. At
the evil end of the spectrum, an anti-hero may have some grand goals in mind, but their goals
tend to be selfish and morally questionable. They may limit good actions and intentions their
close friends and family, or they may not be interested in doing good for others at all. This
version is hardly distinguishable from a villain personality.
There are also anti-heroes who have most of the qualities of a classic hero, but lack the
motivation to be a hero. They are usually cynical or pessimistic. They may become more of a
classic hero as they establish positive goals to work on and as these goals become increasingly
important to them.

Badass - There are many kinds of badass. Most generally, a badass in someone with incredible
skill or fortitude that is demonstrated when interacting with others. The most common
examples refer to violent activity, such as fighting, but in the real world, many examples of
badass have little to do with physical violence.
There are numerous badass types including, but not limited to:
Badass Adorable - Someone that is both cute and badass.
Badass Angster - Someone who is badass but prone to brooding or crying.
Badass Bookworm - Someone who is badass because of some intellectual ability or
genius.
Badass Damsel - A badass who is also a woman.
Badass Pacifist - A peaceful person who is badass due to, or in spite of, their
unwillingness to bad down or use force to get their way.
Badass Princess - A badass who is also a princess (or ojou type.)
Beware the Nice Ones - Someone who is generally kind and unassuming, but can
become a complete badass when provoked.
Beware the Silly Ones - Someone who is generally funny and care-free, but can become
a complete badass when provoked.
Crazy Awesome - A person who is a badass because of their craziness. Or at least, their
craziness supports their ability to be badass.

Big Eater - You love food and have the appetite to support your love. You may eat giant portions
of food in one sitting, you may be always hungry, or you be always talking and thinking about
food. A healthy appetite is nothing to be ashamed of, but make sure you aren't overdoing it. If
your well-being is being negatively affected by poor food choices, try not to identify too strongly
with this trait. Instead, focus on making healthy lifestyle changes.

men) who are very attracted to bishonen.

around you.

Chivalrous Pervert - You find females beautiful and fascinating. You may spend all day thinking
about them, you may constantly flirt with them, and you'll probably feel the need to protect or
defend them in certain scenarios. If you have this character trait, make sure you emphasize the
chivalrous side and make sure you aren't engaging in sexist behavior. Your antics may be funny
to some, but if you are hurting or offending anyone, consider apologizing and keeping your
behavior in check.

Computer Charmer or Computer Nerd - The wrench wizard enjoys working with hammers, nails,
wrenches, and screws. The computer charmer, on the other hand, enjoys working with
computers. You may be good at building and fixing computer hardware or software, or you may
just spend enough time on the computer to really know your way around. Your friends may
seek you out when their computer programs are misbehaving. Your computer skills may come in
handy when your group chooses its focus or embarks on some of the projects and adventures in
later chapters.

Cordon Bleugh Chef - Despite your efforts, your cooking is assessed by others as inedible. You
may have incredibly strange tastes that only you find appealing, or you agree with your friends
that you shouldn't be let within 10 feet of a kitchen. This trait is both a curse and an opportunity
for humor. Laugh at yourself as you learn. You may eventually go from crummy to champion.

support your interest.

Deadpan Snarker - You are observant, especially of faults in people and plans. This characteristic
implies a cynical nature that you express to the amusement or annoyance of friends. You may
express yourself with sarcasm, or you may come across as a shrewd strategist, leader, or

to express genuine feelings.

Elegant Gothic Lolita - You dress in the elegant gothic lolita style of Japan. You combine a gothic
style featuring lots of black color and horror elements like bats and vampires with the ultra
feminine lolita style of frilly dresses, ribbons, bows, and lace. If you only possess the gothic
elements, you're simply a goth while those with only the lolita elements are sometimes referred
to as sweet lolitas.

Girl/Guy simply does not have strong feelings or does not understand her/his true emotions.

Evil Laugh - In anime, an evil laugh is usually reserved for super villains, mad scientists, psychos,
and Large Hams. It is characterized as a laugh that erupts when contemplating some misfortune
or devious scheme. It is often unusually loud or manic, making others question your sanity.

Fiery Redhead - You are the stereotypical passionate, outspoken redhead. You may be a fun
person to hang out with and a great addition to parties, but if someone or something makes you
angry, watch out. You keep things exciting because you are constantly fluctuating between
passionate drive, outspoken humor and observation, heated debate, and downright aggression.

Genki Girl/Keet - You are the personification of energy and enthusiasm. For some people, your
energy is a welcome motivator and source of amusement and humor. For others, your endless
enthusiasm can grate on the nerves or be exhausting. Either way, you are often a catalyst in
starting new projects, going on adventures, or getting into trouble. You may speak and act
without thinking, which may have humorous, embarrassing, or in rare cases, hurtful results.

Genius Ditz/Ditzy Genius - Although you are ditzy or absent-minded, you excel in one or more
skills, forcing others to expand their perception of intelligence. You may err on the side of being
ditzy, with only one or two specific skills to challenge that label. In this case you are a Genius
Ditz. Alternatively, you may be intelligent and skilled in many areas while being completely
absent-minded or lacking common sense. In this case, you are a Ditzy Genius.

Heavy Sleeper - Once asleep, you can sleep through anything. You can't find an alarm clock loud
enough to wake you. As with the klutz, being a deep sleeper can be frustrating but also funny.
Don't take yourself too seriously and when you are late to school or work due to oversleeping,
remember that many an anime character has shared this situation.

Hot-Blooded - You throw yourself head first into situations. This may get you into trouble
sometimes, when you act before thinking. You may also have a temper that puts a strain on
your relationships with others. Overall, however, your passion is a welcome addition to any
group. You excitement often rubs off on others. Your enthusiasm is so over-the-top you make
everyone grin and laugh. Unlike the Genki Girl/Keet, who is generally positive and enthusiastic,
you may become passionate only at times and it may not be positive. Unlike the Determinator,
who is passionate and persistant, you may become passionate for a time and then lose interest.
Your passionate reactions to life may also make you a Large Ham.

Idiot Hero - Some may consider you a fool, but your childlike innocence, determination,
idealistic goals make you an inspiration to your friends, who may also turn to you for leadership.
You may frequently make mistakes and get into messy situations, which friends may find
humorous, irritating, or both. However, if many cases you emerge triumphant, often due to
some underappreciated skills, through sheer determination, or due to a naively positive
interpretation of outcomes.

Jerkass Facade - While you are actually a caring, considerate person, you have reasons for
behaving like a jerk around other people. Perhaps you want to avoid getting close to others,
perhaps you want to appear more confident, perhaps you think that acting like a jerk makes you
more attractive. Whatever the reason, you have made a conscious decision to step away from
your innate considerate nature and behaving as though you are uncaring and/or arrogant.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold - Unlike the Jerkass Facade, you tend to behave like a jerk without
trying or making a conscious decision. However, beneath the arrogant, inconsiderate, or hurtful
emotional reactions, you are a caring, loving person. Don't beat yourself up if you have this trait.
In fact, most people have this trait to some degree because most people have protective
mechanisms they use to prevent being hurt.

Kawaiiko - Your behavior mimics that of a small child. The difference is, you are largely aware of
your cute behavior. The kawaiiko walks a dangerous line between appearing irresistible and
creepy. You should do what makes you happy, but be aware of how you appear to others. In
general, the older you are, the more subtle you should express your cute behavior to remain on
everyone's cute side.

Kuudere - "Kuudere" means "hot-cold." You have a warm, loving side and a cold, pragmatic side
that compete for expression. While in "cold mode" you may use silent treatment, non-verbal
cues suggesting disgust or superiority, cynical comments, or emotionless or overly logical
behavior.
There are three basic types of Kuudere: You may be a Kuudere because you have such good
control over your emotions, you stay calm and rational in all situations (in that case you may
also be a Stoic or Emotionless Girl/Guy). Or, you may be a Kuudere who is cold only to those you
don't trust, but warm to those you know and trust. Finally, you may be a Kuudere because you
alternate between your cold side and your warm side, often reacting to certain triggers that put
you in one or the other mode.

Large Ham - You have a knack for stealing the show with your over-the-top theatrics. You may
or may not intentionally garner attention, but you certainly don't mind it. You act in ways that
others see as outlandish, inappropriate, hilarious, or arrogant, or larger-than-life. While people
generally enjoy your attention grabbing theatrics, you may overlook others when they are trying
to express themselves and be heard. A Large Ham is appreciated most when he/she respects the
presence and voice of others.

Manic Pixie Dream Girl/Guy - Although not necessarily female, this personality feature is usually

considered crazy by some. You are probably also a Strange Girl/Guy.

Meganekko/Megane - "Meganekko" means "glasses girl", although those satisfying the criteria
for this personality feature may not wear glasses. The Meganekko/Megane is pleasant and

introverted, yet confident and reliable. And, at least in anime, characters with this personality
are often found wearing glasses.

Ojou/Princely Young Man - An Ojou-san or Ojou-sama is someone with high-class female
characteristics. Often, this person is wealthy, but not necessarily. The key to this personality is
that people treat her like royalty or at least, respect her formal attitude by reciprocating. She is
often found in a powerful role, such as the president of a club or council.
The Princely Young Man is the closest male counterpart to the Ojou. Like the ojou, this is
someone who is treated as an aristocrat and who assumes mannerisms and behavior to match.
This person need not be wealthy or be heir to a noble lineage, although they often are. Often,
this person has gained their status through a position of authority they acquired themselves or
through their popularity or charm.

The Quiet One - The quiet is very simply, a person who rarely speaks. This person can be male
or female. They are not necessarily loners, although they may come across that way. Because
they rarely speak, their words carry an extra weight. This is usually justified as the quiet one
tends to be thoughtful, speaking with care and consideration for what's being said.

Slasher Smile - A slasher smile is a smile that conveys no warmth. Instead, aggression, mischief,
or madness are typically implied by this exaggerated grin. This characteristic often accompanies
wild and crazy personalities. However, it is sometimes seen in otherwise sane personalities,
where it is brought on by some trigger or periodic mischievous thought.

Stoic - This personality is calm and collected, regardless of the circumstances. When everyone
else is jumping with joy or trembling with fear, this person seems unaffected. This person tends
to be brutally honest and can thereby offend others. The polar opposite of the Stoic is the HotBlooded personality. There may be a select few instances where this person displays emotion,
but their default reactions range from mild interest to detachment to outright disdain. While
the Stoic's outward calm is more intentional or due to a calculating mind, the Emotionless
Guy/Girl just lacks emotion or is confused about their feelings.

Tall, Dark/Light, and Bishoujo/Bishonen - This feature is a combination of appearance and
personality. In appearance, this person combines several (not necessarily all) of the following
characteristics: taller than her peers, voluptuous body, long hair, strong contrast between hair
color and skin color, regarded as beautiful by her peers. In personality, this person tends to be
mature. Often their maturity makes them somewhat aloof or distant. They are often regarded
with admiration.

Tall, Dark/Light, and Snarky - Like the Tall, Dark, and Bishoujo/Bishonen, this feature is a
combination of appearance and personality. In appearance, they are often tall and regarded as
handsome or beautiful by their peers. In personality they usually come across as arrogant or
constantly annoyed. They often view the people around them as idiots, and match that view
with snarky comments. Despite their critical eye (or perhaps because of it), they are often
mentors whose advice carries considerable weight with their friends and admirers.

Tomboy/Bokukko - Your behavior, appearance, dress, or sentiments may resemble those of a
male. You may be tougher than most of your female friends, or you may be as athletic as your
male friends. You may not like "girly" things, or you may have an interest in typically male
activities. The tomboy comes in many forms. You can embrace what makes your a tomboy
without identifying with all tomboy traits. The tomboy is often a welcome contrast to otherwise
overly feminine characters in many anime.

Tsundere - This is a person who tends to oscillate between two extremes of mood, usually
towards one person or group. At times, they are sweet, kind, and generous. Other times, they
are harsh, irritable, and annoyed. This behavior often stems from an inner struggle between
feelings of love for a person or group and the insecurity or disappointment that arises as a
response to those feelings. Typically, the "Tsun" or cold side is just a facade while the "dere" or
sweet side is the true personality. The Tsundere tends to apply to females, while Jerk with a
Heart of Gold is very similar but tends to apply to males. This feature is very similar to Kuudere,
except that a Kuudere's negative side is more cold or withdrawn while a Tsundere's negative
side is more irritated or angry.

Trickster - A person who plays tricks on others or who enjoys disobeying conventional rules is a
trickster. This person is not necessarily malevolent, they may just get a kick out of foiling
expectations. Although often they are simple in it for the laughs, at times this person can use
tricks to cheat or manipulate others. If this person is political, they may be disobeying societal
norms as a means of protesting an aspect of society they disagree with. They may also be an
Anti-Hero.

Yamato Nadeshiko - This is a very Japanese personality feature. "Yamato" is a term for Japan
usually reserved for poetry. "Nadeshiko" is a term for a wildflower found in Japanese highlands.
These words together refer to a woman who reflects a traditional ideal for a Japanese woman.
She is fiercely loyal to her family, friends, and respected authorities. Like a wildflower, she is
both delicate and strong. She typically possesses domestic skills alongside wisdom and
maturity. Physically, this person is often delicate with pale skin and long straight dark hair.

obsessive, controlling, jealous, or actually crazy.

Assessment 3: Your Element
Everyone has all the elements within themselves, but not in equal measure. Some people may
be fairly balanced between several elements, while others will have a single element that is
much stronger than the others. Celebrate your dominant element and feed it, but don't neglect
other elements in your life. Individuals have the power to balance their dominant element with
a supporting element, and this is actually recommended. Resonating strongly with only one
element can lead to imbalances in personal and public life.
More information about Chinese five-element theory as it applies to personality can be found in
the book Mastering 5-Elements by Tanya Storch.
Staying Balanced
According to Chinese five-element theory, it's best not to have one element in excess. In order
to balance your dominant element consider building the energy of your next strongest element
or building the energy of the element that naturally supports your dominant element.
In five-element theory, each element is supported by another element. Water supports tree,
tree supports fire, fire supports earth, earth supports metal, and metal supports water. You
need not focus on only one or two elements. Be supportive of as many elements in your life as
you feel like embracing.
Fire Element
Based on this assessment, you are a fire element. According to Chinese five-element theory, fire
people are the most energetic of all the elements. They are passionate, enchanting, and
romantic, but must guard against becoming too impatient or hot-blooded.
The fire element is naturally enhanced in everyone during the teens and early twenties. Fire
elements cultivate their energy by using the colors orange, red, and yellow in their dress,
decoration, and interior design. Hot foods like coffee, tea, soup, and hot meals are good for fire
people. Spicy foods like peppers, cinnamon, and curry are also good. As a fire, trying new things,
including new foods, is important to build your fire energy.
Fire power is boosted in summer, the fire person's most powerful season. When in the privacy
of their own space, fires enjoy wearing little or no clothing. Because fires are powered by the
sun, noon is the most powerful time of day for a fire. It is the time of day when they have the
most energy for exercise and work, and when their appetite peaks. Fires enjoy rooms with wide
open sunny windows. Fires are best suited for living in the southern United States (although the
southeast may be a bit too wet/watery for them) and may not tolerate northern climates well.
Fire energy is centered in the heart. For this reason, fire people must take special care of their
heart and are more prone to problems there.
Water Element
Based on this assessment, you are a water element. According to Chinese five-element theory,
water people are withdrawn and philosophically inclined and must guard against becoming too
passive or stagnant. Although the water element is misunderstood in modern Western culture,
it is the most valued element in Asian cultures, where water types are chosen as leaders and
heroes.
The water element is naturally enhanced in everyone during old age between ages 48-60 (after
this the elements cycle again, beginning with tree). Water elements cultivate their energy by
using shades of blue in their dress, decoration, and interior design. Each water element usually
has one special shade of blue that resonates with them more than other shades. Water people
are often picky eaters, but should make sure to include salty and bitter foods in their diet as
these support their energy. Waters should avoid food and drink at hot temperatures.
Water power is boosted in the winter, the water person's most powerful season. Winter also
provides the water person with a chance to hide - cloaked in layers of clothing or withdrawn
indoors the water person maintains their energy best. Night hours are the most powerful time
for a water person when they may shift from shy to talkative. Water people should pay close
attention to their insights and dreams during the night hours. Waters are best suited for living in
the Northern United States. Water energy is centered in the kidney. For this reason, water
people must take special care of their kidneys and are more prone to problems there.
Tree Element
Based on this assessment, you are a tree element. According to Chinese five-element theory,
tree people are the sweetest and kindest of the elements, but trees can sacrifice themselves and
are often taken advantage of. Their strength lies in their creativity and nurturing, healing nature.
The tree element is naturally enhanced during early childhood - from 1-12 years old. A tree
person may feel like a child at heart. Tree elements cultivate their energy by using shades of
green in their dress, decoration, and interior design. Each tree element usually has one special
shade of green that resonates with them more than other shades. Tree people crave sweet
foods and these are a source of energy for tree people. However, they should be careful not to
overindulge. Trees need lots of sweetness in their life but it doesn't all have to be in the form of
sweet food.
Tree power is boosted in the spring, the tree person's most powerful season. The morning hours
are the most powerful time for a tree person. Be sure to go to sleep at a reasonable hour so that
you can enjoy the morning. Tree energy is centered in the liver and failure to care for this organ
with a healthy diet and stress management can lead to skin problems like rashes and acne.
Metal Element
Based on this assessment, you are a metal element. According to Chinese five-element theory,
metal people are highly valued in modern Western culture. They are disciplined, orderly, and
rational, but may be less developed or open emotionally.
Metal energy is enhanced in everyone during midlife, between the ages of 36-48. Metal
elements cultivate their energy by using highly contrasting colors and highly symmetrical
patterns in their dress, decoration, and interior design.
Sour and pickled foods are good for the metal person. Metal power is boosted in the autumn,
the metal person's most powerful season. Late afternoon is the most powerful time of day for
the metal person, when they have time to work on their self-improvement and important
projects and hobbies. Metals are best suited for living in the Western United States. Metal
energy is centered in the lungs. Because metals are often in positions of leadership and
responsibility, they may spend long hours indoors and giving instructions, both activities that
stress the lungs. Additionally, metals have a tendency to be high-strung. All of these issues can
be helped, and the lungs strengthened, by regularly singing.
Earth Element
Based on this assessment, you are an earth element. According to Chinese five-element theory,
earth people are balance-keepers in society, getting along with all elements. They enjoy the
comfort that only comes with a life in balance.
Earth energy is greatest in enhanced in everyone during early adulthood, ages 24 - 36. Earth
elements cultivate their energy by using colors of the earth - browns, greens, blacks, and
purples, in their dress, decoration, and interior design. Some earths are also drawn to golds and
yellows, including gold jewelry. However, the most important consideration in an earth person's
wardrobe is the comfort of the fabric. Earth needs a balance of tastes, with nothing too spicy,
too sour, too sweet, or too bitter. Earth's often have big appetites and especially enjoy hearty
foods.
Earth power is boosted during the transition of seasons, when summer goes to fall, fall goes to
winter, winter goes to spring, and spring goes to summer. Early afternoon is the most powerful
time for earth's to recharge. Therefore, earth people should give themselves time to relax
directly after work or school. Earth people do well living in the Midwest. Earth energy is
centered in the stomach. As an earth, take care to cherish your meals and not overeat.
Summary
"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be."
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
Once you have completed all of the assessments, you may have developed some insight about
your personality, or ways in which you can cultivate an anime persona that integrates
seamlessly with your innate personality. Don't restrict your self-image to this collection of
categories, but use them to gain perspective on yourself and to develop your personal story and
that of your friends.

Chapter 2: Creating A Group Focus
" Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined."
–Henry David Thoreau
"I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear."
–Rosa Parks
"It is never too late to be what you might have been."
–George Eliot
"Do what you can, where you are, with what you have. "
–Teddy Roosevelt
You may have a group of friends built around an interest in anime, but in order to be like anime,
your group needs a focus other than watching and talking about anime.
At first glance, it may seem difficult to construct a group focus like the ones in anime, after all,
you probably don't have magical powers, arch enemies, or meet mysterious strangers on a daily
basis.
But look again at your favorite anime - can you find a realistic side to what the characters are
doing? Maybe, they are helping people and saving lives. Maybe, they are training and sparring
with martial arts. Maybe they are in a band. There are countless examples of activities and
pursuits that can be engaged in by you and your friends that will provide a canvas for adventure,
mayhem, and character development.
Your group may choose to focus intensely on one project or it may branch out to include
multiple foci. In this chapter we will review a few activities with enough room for development
and regular activity to be excellent options for a group focus.
