When I started watching the Gundam '79 movie compilation, Zeta Gundam, Gundam Wing, Gundam SEED, Gundam 00, Gundam Build Fighters and Build Fighters Try, and Gundam Thunderbolt Seasons One and Two. Since then, I dug as deep into other mecha anime as possible, and so far watched the following all the way to the end:

1. Cross Ange
2. Code Geass
3. Full Metal Panic
3.5. Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid
4. Star Driver
5. Gun X Sword
6. Kuromukuro
7. Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040

Mecha series I haven't finished yet:

1. Captain Earth
2. Eureka Seven
3. Aquarion

And it was from there, I learned that there were three different subgenres of mecha anime, as well, including super robots (mecha that defy the laws of physics), real robots (mecha that abide to the laws of physics), and hybrid robots (mecha that neither defy nor abide to the laws of physics).

When I was a kid, I used to watch Sailor Moon after school. But then Cowboy Bebop came along and the rest is history.

I'm going to ignore the ones from the childhood (you know pretty well which ones) and go back to September 2013.

I still remember it well. I was passing magazine stand in hypermarket and what happened? Fate, maybe but one book of manga catched my attention. Soul Eater vol. 9. Later, i checked it on Wikipedia and noticed that it also has an anime. I ordered the DVD and few days later, start watching it. OP plays and then i decided: this is something i want to as a hobby.


At first it was a slow start to me but when i discovered Crunchyroll back in spring 2015, more possibilities and fun. Could i ask more? Especially after i discovered that Love Live! is here.


It's been almost four years since i started this hobby and even though it does burn money at times (DVD and manga collecting), it's still better than back then. My life became better and interesting, to sum it up.

Finally, the first official anime i've watched? Soul Eater. It's my number 1 anime and it will always stay.

Phew, so much text. But at least it's done.

Naruto.
I was 11.
At the time the show was first airing, Naruto was 12.
I latched onto that escapist fantasy so hard lol. Stuck with it for four or so years.

When Shippuden came out, I abandoned it not because Shippuden was bad, but because online streaming had finally reached a point where I could watch currently airing shows in Japan. All of them. I wasn't restricted to a back catalog of previously translated work.
I leapt over to Drrr and I haven't stopped watching seasonal anime since.

Lets see, to be perfectly honest when I was younger I watched the standard DBZ, Zoids, Salior Moon and Outlaw Star but didn't really consider at the time the difference between Cartoons and Anime. It wasn't until Middleschool that a friend of mine (that I had a crush on) talked frequently about Gin-Tama and Yu Yu Hakusho. So trying to impress the girl, delving into anime like never before seemed like a no-brainer, and I quickly realized the nuances between Saturday morning cartoons and Anime. The maturity level surprised me (Wolfs Rain, Code Geass, Bleach) , emotion behind both character and plot that they not only projected but made you feel. So today I'm happy to say my interest in anime has never dwindled since.

Mine is weird how it started. I bought Sugar: A Little Snowfairy volume 1 on DVD at Best Buy years ago but wasn't thrilled with it. Then, over about a year's time, got the whole series of His and Her Circumstances/Kare Kano on DVD. I was a total newbie to anime but loved the art style. After that, my next anime was Fruits Basket which I ADORED. And I would consider FB the one that made the whole anime love take off for me, and I saved all my money for anime DVDs.

It first began with Digimon and subsequently magical girl animes like Cardcaptor Sakura and Tokyo Mew Mew. After that, I started to branch out more.

The only porn available to me as a teenager was through anime nudity. My parents assumed it was just cartoons....

So, my love of anime started really young. One day I was flicking through the channels and I saw this cocky asshole (Vegeta) just ripping into some greenish guy with long hair (Zarbon). I had no idea what was going on, but I loved everything about it. This was really the only anime I watched in my childhood. Then, later while at university, I started watching more anime that wasn't necessarily centred around super powers. I got hooked instantly on deathnote, although so far I had watched both animes in english. It was only later when I started to experiment, I had always seen this anime advertised with 5 star rating on netflix. I decided to give it a go and it was astonishing. I am of course talking about Hunter X Hunter. This was my first experience with anime in japanese. It became overwhelmingly clear that something is missing when listening to english dubs. Something that only the Japanese trained voice actors bring to their performance. Since then I have watched fullmetal alchemist, seven deadly sins, attack on titan, berserk (i even love the new berserk), dragon ball super, My hero academia, Fate, with my absolute favourite being one punch man!

However, it was only a few hours ago where I bought my first manga. I decided to buy a few volumes of one punch man and hunter X hunter now he is working again.

On my to do list is one piece, Code Geass, parasyte, Stein gate.

Watching Death Note. I really didn't know what anime was before Death Note. Everything was "cartoons." After I finished watching it, I wanted to look more into anime.

I've been watching anime off and on for decades, but never read a single manga. Until about a week ago. The one that did it was Sweetness and Lightning, a story that I related to so much, and grabbed hold of me so tightly that I immediately found the manga and plowed through all available chapters.

So I guess it's never too late, huh?

Sick of Disney; watched a lot of Toonami. So basically DBZ, and the rest is history.
