Ah, let's see...
It seems a few people would like to know more, so here goes.
Ah, I've been watching anime since the late 80's, if you count the American television broadcasts of Robotech and Voltron. I remember watching Nausicca when it was released as the heavily edited Warriors of the Wind, back around '88 or '89. Though at the time, I didn't realize the country of origin wasn't the US.
I suppose I really got hooked later on in junior high, when Samurai Pizza Cats and Sailor Moon began airing, since the shows Syfy (back when it was still the good ol' Sci-fi channel) aired late night, were only once or twice a month at best. I do recall watching Vampire Hunter D, and Robot Carnival, as well as Gall Force on those late night showings. Of the latter, Gall Force really hooked me, and I eventually found a VHS copy of the Bubblegum Crisis OVAs at a small mom & pop video store, my senior year of High School. That was the show that truly started my quest for collecting Anime. That and the first VHS of Ranma 1/2 I found at Blockbuster around the late 90's.
Since then, it's been easier to watch either streaming anime, or fansubs. I buy the occasional DVD now and then, and have been switching steadily over to Blu-ray as the titles are released. I highly recommend the Blu-ray version of Paprika, if you happen to get the chance to watch it, as it clearly benefits from the High-definition transfer.
