In 2004, picking up the first volume of the 'Love Hina' was probably the worst and best decisions of my life. Good because it opened my eyes and mind to the new world of manga/anime and bad as it spelt certain death to my savings plan.

It wasn't long after I'd mowed down several manga series (working in a bookshop has it perks sometimes =D ) that my brother stepped into the scene with the innocent sounding 'I've joined a sci-fi/anime club at Uni'. As I was working full-time at the time I thought I was safe from his interests but I couldn't have been more wrong. After being forced to watch the first DVD of RahXephon (Bro: 'I've just watched this series, it's awesome. You've got to watch it!) I found I didn't need forcing to finish the rest.

And now here I am today, ripping through anime series weekly and keenly seeking out others that are just dying to be watched. Even backpacking hasn't stopped me as I've managed to keep watching round friends houses and homestays and I can't will I get back home so I can get back home so I can rewatch all my favourites.

As a side note, getting into anime and manga has also got me into j-pop and anime soundtracks which I listen to devotely around the world via help from a memory stick and Anime Academy Radio =).

You actually found someone to play mahjong with? Lucky.

Yeah, I also found that the more recent episodes of saki feel less like a show about competitve mahjong and more about a bunch of girls fighting. while the earlier episodes felt more like some weird comedy.

Well, just look at my watching list and watched list...it's quite comprehensive now and means that I can at least gain a few marks in the Sci-Fi AMV round as opposed to the first time when I was stuck at only knowing 5 :D

I doubt that it'll be a two week marathon, since the collection has grown quite a bit and I'm now averaging at least an hours worth or anime a day...bit bad for me, but since I don't have anything else to do, I might as well enjoy myself.

Take Care

Hey,

Nice to finally be able to see what you've seen that I haven't.  This way I'll at least be able to watch your shows since you tell me about them and I always forget :S.  Scary how many hours watching anime takes up...

Talk to you later :D
