For a while now this has been among my favorite sites to look up anime recs, reviews, etc. I finally decided to get my own account to also help keep track of anime and manga I'm following or am interested in.
How did I get into anime? College, sometime in 2010. Before that I had been casually re-watching some of the stuff I was into as a kid (e.g. Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball, etc). A friend and my brother both kept recommending other shows so I gave a couple a try but was unable to follow up on them. I was still interested so I eventually made some time, ended up watching Naruto and after the first few arcs found myself completely hooked. It may not have been the first anime I ever watched but it did lead to my newfound fascination with anime and for that I'll always be fond of the series.
Anyway, after that I began watching more and more shows and got interested in manga as well :) Now, to my frustration, I always feel there's just never, ever enough time to watch anime haha.
As for my preferences, I'm pretty much open to any genre (of course, that doesn't mean I will actually like everything).
Rating: 0.5-Terrible; 1-Bad; 1.5-Weak; 2-Not really good; 2.5-Average, so-so; 3-Decent, above average; 3.5-Good; 4-Very good; 4.5-Excellent, great; 5-Masterpiece
*Those with zero stars I either forgot or, in some cases, purposely didn't rate (like ongoing shows etc).
