Hello, The name's Giovanni. No, I am not from Team Rocket.
If you want to know why I am here. I am here because this site has some interesting features such as posting reviews, lists, and blogs that is all related to anime and manga. I have a knack for critiquing anime because I love to watch anime from time to time. It is alongside my favorite pasttimes, such as watching films and TV shows and critiquiing them as well, but that's not really something to talk about here since this site is anime/manga related. I also like playing video games as well. You may call me a nerd if you wish however I do have a social life. I don't always talk about anime, movies, TV shows, and Video games all day. But I do talk about them a little bit from time to time. I am not super obsessed with anime, but since I know a lot about certain animes with great memory, I guess I consider myself a hardcore otaku to some degree. I even go to an anime convention known as Sakura-Con. I also have been to Aki-con (which is located in Bellevue, Washington) I have been to Sakura-con twice and I think the convention is awesome. Aki-con is nice considering that it's halfway between the previous Sakura-con to the next. There are otakus out there and everyone has their own interests. If you want to know what my exposure to anime was, it started with Pokemon when I was 7 or 8 years old. If there was a more real exposure, it was Neon Genesis Evangelion (I was limited to watch certain episodes due to content). I will never forget the first time I saw the Evangelion opening, I was blown away by its presentation at the time. How did I get to see it? my brother came home from Japan from the Marines and he got to see the TV show and he really enjoyed it. He enjoyed it so much that he taped the show on tape and he bought volumes of the show on tape when it was released in the US. My brother got me into anime. when I was about 10 years old, I was watching some anime series from the well-known Cartoon Network block "Toonami". Shows like Yu Yu Hakusho and DragonBall Z were big hits and obviously classics. After Toonami was gone, I had a brief disinterest in anime maybe it was because I felt like it was more for kids. That is until a friend of mine back from high school broadened my spectrum on anime to some degree. I remember she was watching a show called "Hellsing" and I saw a little bit of it and thought it was pretty cool. She is also into anime and still is to this very day. She also goes to anime conventions as well which is how I ended up going there two times. after a while I realized that there are some animes for adults and teenagers too, little did I know that when I saw Yu Yu Hakusho and a little bit of DBZ, those shows were censored. . What's my friend's name you might ask? She goes by "BlackAngelReinae" on here. If it wasn't for my brother and this friend of mine, I wouldn't be here talking about why I like anime. It's thanks to them that I just have quite a passion for anime. To be honest I just love animation in whatever form. I don't know what else to say about why I like anime, I just like it and nothing's ever going to change that
Anyway, feel free to comment below or on my reviews and I hope to be friends with you soon.
