Despite her mom’s wishes for a girly-girl, Marisa dove into everything nerd culture has to offer; anime, video games, comics, and pretty much everything in between. Her interests in Japanese media and World History culminated into a deep love of Japanese Culture and History, her main focus when it comes to panels and podcasts.
Marisa graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a degree in History and a minor in Cultural Anthropology. At UNCG, she served as the Vice President of the UNCG Japanese Club.
Marisa’s Go-to Anime: Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu, Haikyuu!!, Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, Yuri!!! on Ice, and Code Geass
