So one day, there was this magazine coming out in Norway, called Manga Mania and I thought, this looks interesting! Which was rather odd when I usually only bought Donald Duck... I think it was 2001 and I was around 12, that's where it started, the magazine featured series as Love Hina, Chobits, Blade of the Immortal and other cool stuff and I was completely breathtaken by the insane action and unique humour.
Being that I spent a lot of time surfing files on crappy filesharing programs as LimeWire and BearShare I quickly discovered fansubs and it didn't take long before I was watching animes as Love Hina and a later Naruto. Today I've watched a ton of anime, and some may call it a giant waste of time, but I cant think of many things I'd rather be doing.
I'll probably still have the same love for anime 10 years from now :D
