Well, I'm actually still a beginner with the whole anime thing. Most of the people around me, including my family, don't really understand why I like it, and the same can kinda be said about me. I don't know how I got sucked in, but I know I'm extremely glad I was.
You could say it all started with Kimi Ni Todoke, which I discovered around february and followed until it [sadly] ended, but I think it really started when I watched Howl's Moving Castle when I was a kid and fell in love with it [party because I had no idea what it was called, but mostly because of the story].
Since then, I've watched quite a lot of anime, but not nearly as much as I would have wanted. Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to watch as much as I want [due to school and stuff], but since it's summer, I watch every night.
I LOVE ANIME.
Ps. Don't you just love the way "Slice of Life" sounds? (:
