My name is Raya, I’m 36 years old and live in Vienna, Austria.
I was born in Hannover, Germany and grew up living together with my family. I’ve been playing video games for around 25 years now. I also became interested in anime & manga through video games (we now own over 1800 manga) and later also in Japanese and Korean pop culture and fashion.
After I finished school in 2003 I decided to move to Austria to live together with my boyfriend Tom. I studied Japanese studies at Vienna University and finished it with my bachelor degree in 2009. I also took some elective courses from Korean studies, but I can’t really understand anything…
Today I work at a big Austrian retail and tourism company as reception and customer service manager. In my free time I love to read fantasy and science-fiction books or books by Japanese authors and of course also manga; watch tv or anime; play video and computer games, especially RPGs, MMORPGs, open-world action, fun racing, music or strategy games; play board and card games with my friends; take photos of everything and everyone with a great passion; create and enjoy good food; go shopping; swimming or play with my two cats. I love to collect skirts, wigs, nail polishes and eyeshadows.
In July 2014 our cute little son, Flynn was born, who is the new center of my life now :).
