I started to get into anime when I watched the first epsiode of MÄR(Marchen Awaken Romance) on the Toonami block on Cartoon Network (or CN, before Toonami became dead then resurrected back later last year.) I guess I'm a late bloomer into the anime party since MÄR came on TV here where I live somewhere my junior year in high school (2006-2007 year.) Since then, I've became addicted to anime, always dreamed of being in an anime universe and have an anime character that I made up to be a part of any show that I've watched. I've read a few mangas too, and just learned what light novels were a couple of years ago. I am starting to get around to everything that I know about the anime universe.
For the most part, I do watch harem, ecchi, or fanservice shows. I do watch some fantasy or action shows if its good enough. Not really interested in slice of life or sports shows. I'm not really into sci fi or mecha, because I'm more of a magic and sword fight kind of guy than a machine and guns blazing kind of guy, but I am open to watching them.
