Don't haze! Really, the first "anime" I've seen was probably Pokémon... a while ago, meaning years ago. Not too long ago, my work schedule had me staying up all hours of the night and I was able to catch some programming, specifically Bleach (new) and Fullmetal Alchemist (again).

Bleach intrigued me because the point I caught it in featured a different character or two for a couple episodes at a time. I didn't even know what it was called until I'd seen 4 episodes (never caught the beginning). I like it for the fight scenes, stories of friendship, bouts of quirkiness, and even sad/deep moments.

I found a site where I downloaded all the episodes and have seen it from start to finish in Japanese. I know much prefer to see subbed rather than dubbed anime. While it doesn't look as silly as live action movies, I felt the voices were off and have found that the subbed lines may be completely reworked to try to fit the targeted viewers rather than the original intention... poor Hitsugaya-teichou, he's been belittled the most.

I really couldn't watch just that series over and over, I do have limits. But it did inspire me to try to find more anime to watch. It's why I joined Anime-Planet, I like the recommendation database.

But I'm probably not the best anime fan. I'm not into the cutesy ones. Romance is ok, but I'd prefer it as a subplot, not main idea. Robot/futuristic(mecha) doesn't seem appealing yet. Animated or not, samurai stuff interests me. Drama/tragedy should be ok. And definitely, anything that can poke fun at itself. Suggest away!

No, no wild flailing. I just stole a few of his more subtle mannerisms (hand gestures, etc.), as well as a bit of his swagger. :)

I picked up a copy of Kung Fu Hustle, but haven't, as yet, had time to watch it.

I see You want to watch Claymore :) However it's as short as DtB, since they were being released on the same day :/ so Claymore have only 26 episodes :( But it's still great anime, although it's quite twisted :P Because it was obsesively chasing manga to some point and after certain episode, it started to have completely different plot..i don't know why

I don't just like the inner fights but I also like the outer fights as well.  The one that I really liked was when Ichigo fought kenpachi.  That fight was really cool.  Another fight I like is when Ichigo fought Rukia's Brother.  A also like Orihime and her powers.  The one guy that attacks for her is kinda cute, I think.
