Anime Newbie

I'm relatively new to anime (early 2007) when I was introduced to Cowboy Bebop. Even at that stage it was a slow transition, since I still had not "got what all the fuss was about". I subsequently dropped Cowboy Bebop after a few episodes, and picked it up again a couple of months later, and suddenly I found myself looking forward to the next episode!

Now I cannot get enough! hehe

The Type of Anime I Enjoy

I enjoy the character driven anime, with long over-arching storylines, with edge-of-the-seat drama and didn't-see-that-coming plot twists.

That isn't to say, however, that I wouldn't enjoy an anime like Azumanga Daioh, which is hilarious and currently enjoys (at the time of this writing) 4th position in my top 5 favourite anime.

I also enjoy the more poignant, heart-felt, bitter-sweet, balling-my-eyes-out type of anime - lots of drama and teary moments.

Background Info on Me

I am a freelance graphic designer, with a Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, a Degree in Computer Science, and a Diploma in Multimedia. I also come from an IT (Information Technology) background, and have spent much of my career as a computer programmer.

I have an interest in anything creative, such as reading/writing, playing the piano and computer generated art. I would love to try my hand at painting or sculpting someday...

Goddamit, the profile monster just ate all of the comment I had typed for you..... guess I'll have to do it all again...

Only just noticed the 5000 ep thing thanks to you! 8 to go, then I can have a party :D (I should save the 5000th til next week, then I can celebrate doubly on my birthday :D ).

Ecchi recs... It depends on how deep and quick you want to dive in (so to speak). Amaenaideyo is one of the few that has a storyline. Its a typical harem style show, so you will find your favourite kind of girl and probably see her breasts in the process... Oruchuban Ebichu is probably morally wrong and perverted, but had me crying with laughter. Eiken is a firm ISSUP favourite. The most over the top breasts and perverted innuendo, and its only 2 eps long. Golden Boy is the real challenge. Extreme perversion and unforgettable moment will have you in hysterics. Ecchi shows are not something to get your rocks off to, but have a delicate balance of humour to them.

You are going to love Gankutsuou (and that is a promise). The story is amazing, the music quirky, but the animation style takes some getting used to. Thats why its a firm choice in my top 5. If you do enjoy it, I would say give Kemonozume a whirl. Another show with a strange animation style, that will win your heart with the storyline.

Hope that helps on your path to becoming an ecchi connoisseur ;P
