I started watching anime not so long ago in a place not so far away.. It has been an epic journey. Veni, vidi, vici...I came, I saw, I conquered.. if you can call it conquering.... Of course I saw the basics when I was young , Pokemon, Dragon Ball, a little Gundam and all those other shows that somehow made it to North American TV with their horrible dubs.
My anime watching started off with Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop (both recommendable series), and now I've fallen down the very slippery slope that has led me to the philosophy of giving any anime a chance; only 3 episodes worth, that is.
You'll notice my relatively high amount of anime watched... On that note, anyone looking to narrow down what to watch next on their list is welcome to pm me or find me on chat, I'm (mostly) happy to help.
