Me & my History of anime :P
My start line
I started of with animes like Cardcaptor Sakura, Pokemon, Digimon & Sailor Moon when I was still young like 7 or so.. Great memories but of course I didn't know it was anime Xd
I finally knew what is anime when I watched random episodes of Inuyasha, Twelve Kingdoms & Shaman King on late night TV. Shaman King & Inuyasha was what made start off with the anime otakuness I currently have. I may not have continued on Inuyasha but I certainly when crazed about Shamn King. The absolute anime I will always love & the 1st one I ever completed by renting VCDs of it.
My inspiration spark came from Spirited Away. That awesome movie that blew me away no matter how many times I watch it.Its also the anime movie that inspired me to draw in manga style which shaped my current artstyle.Its also the 1st time I watched an anime in raw version since it was directly imported from Japan.
My otaku full blown symptoms came after my major exams when I was 12.I spammed anime since I had so much free time. Naruto, D.Gray-man & Bleach were the ones which I rushed through due to all that shounen excitement. We even had a D.Gray-man fanclub :D
OMG I'm an Otaku
Finally a full-fledged otaku, I watch & research. Squealing in excitement whenever I find a new anime merchandise shop.Going for cosplay conventions & researching about Japanese games such as Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan & others like vocaloid.. yup I think I am one :D
