I have been watching anime steadly for over 10 years, but actually really loved it as a child although like most I didn't know it was actually anime. Like Voltron, and Tranzor Z, (Mazinger Z). I had watched a few movies here and there during high school, like Street Fighter, Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter D, but was more a casual viewer. Then I saw Tenchi Muyo and Trigun and have been hooked ever since, I enjoy series alot more than movies. I usually watch 2-4 episodes a night after work and sometimes 1 or 2 before work if they are series I must see.
