I'm a 20-something person with a myriad of interests, including video games and anime. Recently I've been studying personal finance management, computer science and Japanese. You'll also find me frequently designing and building papercrafts.
Anime has become so prolific that it's a key part of childhood for almost anyone young enough to have grown up with a television in the house- so much so that many people become fans of anime without even realizing it! I can't tell you how many times I've come across those who are completely unaware that the nostalgic favorites they grew up like Astro Boy, Mazinger Z, Gundam, and Heidi, Girl of the Alps are part of this extensive industry. One of the wonderful things about anime is that it transcends so many cultural and social boundaries. It's a great conversation starter and a fun way to find and make new friends.
