Anime History: I started watching anime without even knowing it, because the first anime I watch was Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball when I was 5 years old. After that I watch Pokemon, Tokyo Mew Mew and (once I moved to America) Naruto. These were the first anime I watched. Once I was in America I met I bunch of other people who were into anime and took some of their recommendations. My first friend, who was a fan of Pokemon, told me about Inu-Yasha. I continued watching anime and finding out a bunch of others that caught my attention such as; One Piece, Bleach, Black Cat and Death Note.
Today, my favorite anime all fit into the genre of comedy, but I also like anime that challenge my way of thinking without being too dark. I may be "grown up", but I still consider myself a child.
Manga History: I started reading manga in six grade when I bought Skip Beat 1 and Amazing Agent Luna 1 at my school book fair. After six grade I moved to Georgia and I was a lot happier there because the school library had manga heaven. This was where I found about CLAMP because all of CLAMP's books were allowed at school I read everyone they had there. The public library there introduced me to Crimson Hero, Alice Academy, Meru Puri, Fruits Basket, Demon Diary, Me and My Brothers and Baby & Me. At my school Book Fair there I got Hollow Fields 1&2, Amazing Agent Luna 2 and The Naruto Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow (as a manga in color). Now, I'm back in Florida and have introduced to mangas and anime by Matsuri Hino and Yuu Watase.
Now all the manga I read are either ones that have similar themes to Hollow Fields and Amazing Agent Luna: a character being somewhere they don't belong and ends up having to learn how to survive, or where a character is made in a different way than our typical birds and the bees talk.
I'm into anything and everything until I lose interest in it. And by lose interest, I mean it either gets too confusing (I'll get to it when I'm older) or it's just too stupid. One of the downsides into knowing too much is being able to know when someone has made a mistake, and I find them instantly.
