I'm a first year university student, I major in Economics. My favorite past-time is, of course, watching anime and reading manga. Of course I don't do that all the time, I have a life afterall. I also enjoy reading books, playing games, surf the net, and try to(?) socialize with other people.
Technically, I've seen anime since I was a kid, my country happens to show more Japanese animation more than American cartoons for weekend kid's timeslot. But it was during 6th grade that I start to watch more variety of things when I learned of the word "fansub." It wasn't a serious start because I soon got caught up with online games. It was 9th grade, when I acquired ADSL internet and also that I got bored with online games, that I start to download anime like mad.
