I got hooked to anime around a year back after watching Clannad and Clannad After Story. In India (atleast as far as I know) there is not much exposure towards anime beyond the childhood classics like Pokemon or Digimon and the like. I had no clue about the huge scope of anime storylines. After tearing up to Clannad AS, I have watched a lot of anime but i am not much of a hardcore action junkie and lean more towards comedy, slice of life and romance. I am yet to meet any person in my place who watches anime beyond the present mainstream anime and would love to chat with others.
