Ah no wonder it lagged, most sites loads slow on phone, consoles and anything other than PC. And definitly loads slow on bad internet :P
Hmm that might just be horrible encoding though :P



Pretty much, the website wasn't even intended for mobile use to begin with, but I tried (and failed) anyway. =D

Its funny to hear OP's story, i know that its similar to how a lot of people end up involved with anime, but its almost the opposite of my own intro to anime. I got into anime only after i moved to Japan and even then it was just to help learn the language. For a while it was just meh to me, i didn't care what was happening on the screen or what the anime was about because hey it was for learning. Then one day i just found my self appreciating specific voice actors more than others and from there, rather then seeking out specific shows i was seeking out specific VAs. Eventually the rest came but it took a long time for me to fully appreciate anime as anything other than a tool to learn the language, specifically various slang ways of speaking.

Just a bit of advice to anyone who is following in my footsteps, (trying to learn the language through anime), you don't just watch anime and learn Japanese, you have to actually get other tools as well and completely immerse your self in the language for it to have any kind of effect. Anime became one of the best tools for learning conversational Japanese and helping with pronunciations (believe it or not), but only after i had a solid base understanding of the language its self.

I've been watching anime since my childhood. Welcome to the fandom! It's a fun ride, sometimes bumpy, but I think you'll get along just fine.

Glad you like anime.


Nah, you don't have to get that far before you start to not give a shit :P
I'm at 543 and I already have a pretty meh attitude towards anime. I prefer manga these days.

And OP, you must've gone to a shitty free site then. All the free sites I've tried have been good to me I stick to one these days though. (Yeah, I said it. Umad?)
Also there's this thing called "downloading" :P




I wanted to inflate the number so it does not shock him.

Technically, I've been too. This post was more about me starting to watch anime religiously, and how my opinion changed on it.


SAME! I'm coming up on a year of really watching anime. My stereotype of an anime fan was of autistic perverts, and the weird immature kids that I saw in high school/middle school with Naruto headbands. Obviously, I knew a lot anime fans aren't like that but still. I had a negative perception of anime. I really never thought it was something I'd ever get into. Now, I'm obsessed. Like, I almost like it as much as making music which is insane for me.

I have to say, your list makes me feel a lot better about myself And I thought I watched a lot this year!

I would suggest some great shows that would put other recommendations to shame, but you're not here for that!

I hope you have a blast watching Anime and other such things, just know that this has been going on for half a century, and there are plenty of shows that you've even begun to know of.
