It turns out i've been watching anime almost my entire life, it just never went by that name. I always called Sailor Moon a "cartoon". But now that i'm older i'm REALLY getting into it. Not manga so much, usually i watch the cartoon, decide it has a horrible ending and read the rest in the manga :D They're all like my ideal reality in some form or another. Alas, i can only watch so much thanks to (wishing it was un)limited downloads GRRR!!
