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...

Wowzers.  You've got some good taste, there.

I've been meaning to see Voices of a Distant Star for a long time. I love the idea that nowadays a person can single-handedly create a professional animated film on their home computer.

I think that it will be viewed as a milestone in animation history.

Monster was a great if not an epic anime. Like you said you will have to check out Bamboo Blade. Its a lot different than anything on your watched list. Just a nice funny slice of life anime based around Kendo.

Not quite sure how I came by your profile.. anyways, what I wanted to say is that I'm impressed. You've seen really "heavy" shows for one who's rather new to anime (I, for one, would probably have been intimidated of anime if I had started with such titles ;_; )
