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!

Haha, thanks, it's what I'd call years of dedication, or some sort of OCD. XD

Well, what kinds of anime are you interested in?

Knowing what you like would better help me suggest some titles, or at least a few websites I know you can watch tons of free anime.

Hit me back sometime.

Hello. I just wanted to stop by and tell you that your sigs are great.  I really liked the Bleach ones. :)

It's finished, could be more authentic but I would say that about anything I replicate myself.

I like the site. It seems (even if it’s streaming video) to have one of the first published copies of a new weekly release of just about any anime over there. And they are already subbed.

Looking forward to the holidays? We have such thick fog here today, it’s a sure sign that the 97+ degree weather is over. Cant wait for the winter to get here….

Hmmm that's a good idea too. I would really like to see Havoc, Pai or Amber in action :) (i know that Amber has shown her powers, but not too much) Eh but what remains now is watch DtB again and again :)
