I started watching anime when I was in elementary. Now 10-15 yrs. after and a bit older, I'm still watching anime! In fact I'm watching more now bec. of the internet. Before you really have to wait for it on TV. And I think what's nice is that when you watch now these shows you've been watching before they are a bit different and better. Bec. you've grown more and you see the show from a different perspective. Example, when I used to watch Gundam Wing I was just interested w/ the mechs and the fights, but watching them now again you understand more the political implications and the motives of the characters.

Truer words were never spoken.

Where I started was Giant Robo's and Mechas and such, pretty much to the exclusion of everything else. I mean, I was a Battletech gamer (the cardboard type, not the computer type) so it was pretty much a no brainer for me.

Now, a little... OK, a LOT older and somewhat wiser, my tastes have broadened to include many titles and genres I wouldn't have given a second thought to. Whether this reflects a shift in my tastes, or just that I have seen so many of the Giant Robo genre I'm bored with the concept and need some other outlet to remain interested, well this remains to be seen. What I can say is I derive enjoyment from all kinds of titles, now that I opened the door those genres I previously discounted as not entertaining.

I can't see myself in the future without anime,

I'm almost out of college, and in a year far away to start searching for a job, and I'm more obssesed every day ...

and ten years in the past i was wondering the same, guessing if my love for anime, manga and stuff like that will end someday ...

but i guess that if you loved it from the start, you can't forget it that easily

Yes. I'll be watching it with my kids, and then my grandkids after that. My mom went through the phase of watching sailormoon, dragonball, and digimon with me when I was a kid. I can get her back into some REAL good anime. But I'm too lazy, and would rather watch it alone on my laptop. She loves anime. =__=;

There is enough variety in anime to be interesting to people of any age. Anime is also one of the greatest art forms, in my opinion. It combines premier elements of art, music, literature and symbolism. You may change what shows you like, but as long as you like good art, good story and good music, then anime is a no-brainer! Just like quality books, artwork or films.

I have been watching anime off and on for over 20 years. When satellite dishes first came out (there where two bands, but the first was the C-band) you could control the HUGE 12 foot dish and point it at several different satellites. You could get raw feeds and there was no encryption being used on all the channels. And even though I never understood a single word of the broadcast, it was a blast watching some of the raw satellite feeds. Everything was done on VHS so it was nearly impossible to get subbed shows and it was never complete, only an episode or movie here or there. I had family who were stationed in Japan, so sometimes we'd get some tapes in the mail that had some shows recorded.

If you want to see something from about 17 years back, check out Den`ei Shoujo Video Girl Ai. It's been been redone and you can get a torrent download of it from www.bakabt.com (former Boxtorrents).

I'm now in my 40's and enjoy anime even more. I never get tired of it. And I also spend time introducing others to anime. It's so much easier to obtain unlicensed subbed material. And now I'd rather watch anime than most anything else that is on TV.

What will most people do? Some will, some won't, so what! I certainly enjoy it and will continue to watch and build my collection of anime. This Spring provided some great shows, and now this some has some very interesting candidates.

Life's too short to not have fun and too long to be miserable. Have fun and watch anime!
