LinguisticFanatic here, and I've been watching anime for about 16 years now. I have nothing better to do than watch anime, read books and manga, eat, sleep, and work. So it'll be interesting to see how fast the "my life on anime" meter goes up considering how much and how often I watch it.
The one anime series that I make sure I watch every year is Escaflowne. I don't know why but I just love that series. I don't have a similar manga series since it doesn't take me long to read a whole series.
The quote that I live my life by is: "Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way." I will warn you though, telling that to your boss when you don't particularly get along doesn't go over very well.
My sister and I have a blog where we post screenshots for different anime series. We divy up the series that we think would have some nice images. You can find it at:
We haven't posted anything too recently since we were running around with current simulcasts coming on and also some life stuff got in the way.
