my name is Marek, I'm from Slovakia and i became an otaku just recently. Though I have seen many, many episodes of randomly chosen series I still consider myself as a beginer at both anime and manga. If i should choose between anime and manga, the winner for me is definitely anime. I don't loathe reading(manga, books..) but i can honestly say, that I am fairly lazy person and anime is the perfect way for me to kill some time, daily.
Also I'm a great fan of Asian cinematography. Names like Shion Sono, Takeshi Kitano, Masaki Kobayashi, Akira Kurosawa, Toshiyaki Toyoda, Takeshi Miike are just a small part of people who I personaly admire. There are still tons of movies, doramas, animes that I would like to watch, there are still languages, which I would like to learn, there are places, which I would like to visit in the future and they all are tied with ASIA. If you hadn't noticed yet, I love Asia :P
I'll be posting here some of my recent experiences and also my most favourite pieces :)
These are jewels that i personally recommend:
