So for like, 3-4 years I've been watching Anime- and it just occurred to me now to wonder how I got into watching Anime in
the first place, now I'm not asking how you got into it or what not. What I'm asking is did you choose to watch it or did you just happened to watch it and continued ever since.

I'm curious, tell me the truth- no shame if you did just happened to come across it.
And I know alot of you will be saying..

But yeah..

Don't call me Shirley.

Just chance. I happened to enjoy what they showed on Toonami, but kind of fell out of watching it when I was 10-16, before picking it up again because of memories of staying up late watching anime when I was young.

I didn't choose the anime life, the anime life chose me.

I came across it randomly a few years ago and found one I liked. I then found another and then another, and then another. It just sort of snowballed like that.

I didn't choose to watch anime I just have ever since I was little. Just one thing led to another and here I am. Nerdier than ever.

A couple of my friends in college were into anime. I tried watching Naruto and then got hooked for a few years on junky shonen shows like Naruto, Bleach etc. I'd say I chose to 'get into it', although I didn't really think of myself as an anime fan at that point. That came later. Rolling with pillows possibly included!?

I definitely chose to watch anime. As a kid growing up in the 70s and 80s, I had been exposed to it through shows like Star Blazers, Battle of the Planets, and Voltron, but didn't know that they were anime at the time. It wasn't until I saw an article in Starlog magazine that talked about anime that I discovered what it was.

I was in the same boat prior to college. I did know that stuff like DBZ originated in Japan but I thought of it as just other cartoons.
