I started watching anime probably around last summer. And I loved it. I started watching Higurashi in July 2011 and then watched Death Note, Angel Beats and many others. The first anime I watched was actually The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which I watched back in 2010.
I tend to rate anime pretty high, as you can see in my ratings list. Unless I can clearly spot the flaws or I just don't like it for an unknown reason.
