I have been watching anime for what has to have been ten years now. I started back when I was in elementary school with the shounen classics of Dragonball Z and Dragonball, Tenchi Muyo was another of my favorites along with several of the Gundam series. Basically any anime that used to come on Toonami back in the day was something I would sit down in front of my TV and absorb with awe. However, times change and people grow up, but instead of growing out of anime like many people I know did, instead my tastes started to evolve and with free access to the internet I began to search and watch everything I could. Over time I started to develop sharp tastes in one direction or the other but have otherwise maintained a rather eclectic taste for anime and the Japanese culture in general.
