Hello, I am a College Student from the UK and through out my life i have been around anime because of my older brother who watches anime but doesn't call himself a big otaku like you would see. I knew of anime and i never really used to watch pokemon that much when it was on. I was more of a Yu-gi-oh kid. Fast forward about 8 or 9 years and me and my brother were talking about anime and i said that if i were to watch one properly which one should i watch...He said 'Neon Genesis Evangelion'. I have never regretted that question as it got me liking anime alot more and made me check out some of the original anime that 4kids censored which were Yu-Gi-Oh and Dragonball Z. Loved them both.
Fast Forward again to about another year and i hadn't watched that much anime and i was reasearching on Cartoon's that i used to watch and i found the list of 4kids shows that they dubbed and i noticed 'One Piece' on there. I remembered it coming on TV and watching it when there was nothing on and throughout my life the damned 4kids theme for 'One Piece' was still stuck in my head and i decided to check out the original anime...I never finished that reasearch on cartoons as i was hooked to 'One Piece' and it's loveable, funny characters. These days i hang around with both of my friends that watch anime and they both reccomended me to this site and it has helped alot more as i have managed to research a lot more different anime that i would like to watch in my preffered genre's of TV and Film which is Horror and mystery. I still watch 'One Piece' and i am still a HUGE fan of it and it has changed the way that i look at TV and the way a creator can create a vast world to entertain his fans.
If you do wonder if i only watch Horror and Mystery, you are wrong as i do like other genres like Comedy and i am planning on watching 'The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya' soon.
