Yep, Ghost in the Shell and Akira here. And I remember watching the old dubbed VHS Akira too... nightmarish voice acting, but that didn't even phase me at the time. Then I watched Lain and Cowboy Bebop, long before cartoon network decided to air it. That really got me hooked. Shortly there after I started going to an anime club. This was back before you could download (high quality) anime online, so we watched 3rd gen VHS fansubs lol. This was right around the time that anime in america started to truly expload so it was cool seeing the that.

I mark my "birth" of being a truly hardcore fan when I went to my first con. Up until then I thought I knew alot about anime... I realized I had just barely scratched the tip of the iceberg after going to my first con. Several months (maybe a year come to think of it) later I saw Love Hina and that really changed my anime viewing habits. Up until then it was mostly action with the oddball comedy thrown, but from then on I've watched mostly bishojou/harem type animes (always making exceptions for other cool series).

Initially I came for dark edgy Sci Fi and kick ass action. I stayed for the great characters, artwork, and original plots. Also the wonderful but bizarre world of japanese pop culutre it allowed me to behold.

I have to agree on that. Being a student and working full time is stressful. When I sit down to watch, it all goes away!
