I'm 22 years old. I must admit that I've been a fan of anime for quite a long number of years. Although the only form of anime I knew was in the category of children's anime, such as Pokemon, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Sailor Moon and the Studio Ghibli works.
I can remember me and my younger brother sleeping downstairs just to watch Pokemon and Digimon. I confess I taped nearly all of season 1 and 2 of Digimon onto multiple video-cassettes, and I would watch them over and over again.
I didn't really care at the time that I was watching anime, just took it for granted in a way. I spent one lonely (but happy) night once a few years back watching The Grave of the Fireflies around 3am in the early hours of an autumn morning.
Then I had hiatus for a period, now I'm back to watching daily dozes of anime, from my new favourite, Bakugan; Gundalian Invaders to old favourites such as Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh.
Recently I've taken to watching more mature anime content, such as the pure as hell insanely awesome Elfen Lied and Full Metal Alchemist.
I've also played a couple anime computer games such as Dragon Quest, Pokemon, and Final Fantasy X. I'm keen to try out Tales of Vesperia and FF XIII.
I'm only just got back into anime, didn't really care about into it until I realised that I most looked forward to at 7ish in the morning was my anime programmes.
I hope to be educated and immersed in this artistic artworld with it's big eyes, cats ears, colourful yet spiky hairdos and near perfect bodies.
And remember some anime programmes, movies or manga I may not have seen, heard of or read. But a few I have, such as Akira, which every anime fan has to watch, I think so anyway.
One neat thing I can do is watch anime wherever I wish. By selecting youtube on my BlackBerry Bold, I can watch Elfen Lied anytime I choose.
Thanks for reading...
