For a while now this has been among my favorite sites to look up anime recs, reviews, etc. So I finally decided to get my own account to also help keep track of anime and manga I'm following or am interested in.
Got into anime while in 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 have a soft spot for 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).
