Well on request of bunnyfingers I will attempt to create somewhat of a profile here that will make some sence. To kick of im from the Netherlands which should proof to be a real shocker or not it does not really matter :d, and I was born in the beautifull summer of 87 to be precise the second day of the official summer (I think). All the other basics are I'm a student; and I am into some basic digital art forms like web design etc.
The first animes
Well if im not mistaken the first real anime I ever saw and made me ooooee in front of the television was Technoman (Tekkaman Blade) which made me bounce around in front of it and made my imagination run wild i was 7 or 8 back then. After that for over I would think 4 or 5 years I never saw an anime again, untill cartoon network showed a commercial of DBZ which made me think what kind of crap is that, untill by accident I watched it and was hooked -.- and next to that Gundam Wing & pokémon(yes I watched and played pokémon) started and I followed it to and later some music channel aired cowboy bepop which I enjoyed a lot, so those are the first animes I ever watched.
Well after my junior high or what you non dutchies would call it, I went to some ICT education T_T which was donkey balls, but it put me in contact with some guys who were either talking about wow again donkey balls or naruto and bleach. They were always talking did you see the episode etc etc which made me think they were nutcakes :D. Untill out of boredom I downloaded some naruto... bad thing since I ended up liking it and watching up to episode 180 in I think was in one week. After I caught up my next show to follow was bleach witch repeated the same sequence and after that I started following some anime I saw pop up with good reviews :D. So if you happen to now an anime with a great story (for example Death Note) and some nice visuals point it out to me and I will watch a few eps and see if I like it ;).
So thats all I could think of hope its helpfull or something :D.
p.s. sorry for any grammatical or spelling mistakes I made and the over use of and :D
