I have been watching anime on and off since I was a teenager when I found myself watching Gundam Wing and Escaflowne on some random channel.
I'm a fan of the fantastic, an enthusiasm which spills over into concept series. I can forgive a lot in an anime that has an immersive world or atmosphere that gives my imagination a new playground. I enjoy anime that deals with complex issues or themes but I wouldn't say I was the most sensitive tool in the lab and I often miss the obvious. I like prettiness and will watch appallingly boring plots for shiny drawings. I will also watch some pretty mindless stuff to pass the hours.
