Hello! I'm Ghost (or Phantom, whichever) and I'd like to join.
I only just delved into Soul Eater about a week ago. It was a slow start, and I was hesitant because I haven't enjoyed too many animes in the past, but it ended up being amazing.. and not to mention my new obsession. I just began Season 3 of the anime and am so morbidly downtrodden because I know it's going to be over soon. Gahhh. But I plan on reading the manga soon.
As for my favourite character it is definitely Soul. /Truly./ His deeply loyal character is what makes me love him the most because I am a lot like him in that regard. I'd spill my heart for the people I love without hesitaton. Being selfless and an unfailing support is what makes him admirable in my head. I also share the traits with him of being mellow, collected, and easy-going. I suppose you could just say I have a connection to his character haha. It strikes a chord with me.
I always watch dub. I find it distracting to read and watch animation at the same time. My mind is split when I am doing such and I cannot focus and fully enjoy myself. So, I prefer watching dub, yes. If I spoke Japanese I'd probably watch the sub, though.. it seems more autentic and the original intent in their messages would get across, and make more sense. Not everything translates perfectly lol. Subtle things are probably lost, sadly D:
