How did I come to know anime?
Well, it was a long journey, at first I watched DBZ (the only one that aired), but did not know what anime was. In middle school a series named Zoids was aired on Mexican television, it became easily one of my top five anime, but the family moved to the States so I could not finish it. In high school started doing some serious research until I found Zoids again on the net. I get my username from this show, so I am not joking when I said I really liked it. I do feel a bit disappointed that Zoids did not get much attention, so it was hard to find.
The rest is history, anime became my drug, I learned what anime and manga are, and did some serious time to look and download for more series, as well as buy DVDs. Where I currently live there is little to none anime popularity so I rely on the net, but when possible I buy the manga and anime DVDs of the series I enjoy, still my collection is too small.
I would watch almost any anime that is original, has lots of humor and action, some drama and mystery and full of surprises.
