I am a pretty laid back supporter of all things Japanese, but especially Anime. I have been watching anime since I did not know what it was. I was somehow drawn to the animation style of shows like Voltron, G-Force, Speed Racer, and even american shows that had been animated by Japanese animators such as Transformers and Thundercats (Ranken and Bass was one of my favorite companies as a kid).
As I became a preteen I began to look into newer animations. About that time I was hooked on three shows, Dragonball, Sailor Moon and Samurai Pizza Cats. This was a great time that led into my awakening as an American Anime Otaku. My first show that I watched uncut in Japanese was none other than Tenchi Muyo In Love the movie. I then opened a door to so many more shows. I am attempting to update my profile on everything I have watched but it will be difficult to get everything ^_^.
Some favorite Directors would be Hayao Miyazaki, Leiji/ Reiji Matsumoto, Shinichiro Watanabe, Yoshiyuki Tomino, and of course Shoji Kawamori.
If you can't tell from that list I'm a bit of a Mecha nut. But I am an open mind about anime and will watch anything at least once. From Yaoi to Pokemon and all the in betweens.
Hope to get to know you all and Please ask me any questions you may have or let me know if you need advice *bows*
