I started watching anime in the spring of 2003. After that it's become a part of my life.
My love for manga came later. About 3 years later to be exact. One summer changed it all. You don't want to be inside during summer ;)
I usually watch anime in chunks, or rather there are periods (when I'm free of studying and work) when I have time to watch all the anime I want to see.
I try to stay away from episodic type anime but as always there are exceptions.
I really like anime movies and other short series (those under 3 hours) so if you see one I haven't seen then please tell me.
