Im vin a creature from Leicester, UK. Im going to bite you!

I started off watching pokemon when that came on sky one in like 99. However soon DBZ started coming on Cartoon Network. That was infinitely cooler than the kiddy pokeymanz. Briefly saw some of the other series they were showing on there. But couldnt see many due to the fact I never got control of the tv. Then the anime got put on CNX a channel we didnt have. So I couldnt really see anything for a few years. Then when I was killing time in the library at collage I found this magazine called SFX. There was this article on anime films and a synopsis of several. Allsuspiciouslyreleased by manga entertainment ... I suspect it may have all been a big ad. I read about Ghost in the shell and how it was the inspiration for the matrix. A film I loved as a teenager. And also Akira which sounded pretty cool. So I went onto play.com ordered the DVDs since they were pretty cheap, and that led me to becoming an anime fan. Years later Id recall that Id actually seen Laputa as a child when i was very very young and had a very poor memory of it. The part that stood out was when the robot thing was walking up a flaming staircase. I remember being scared of staircases for a while.. So laputa would be my first anime.

When I rate anime I tend to look at all parts of it as a whole, but my enjoyment of it can push the rating up or down. But at some point soon Im going to have to redo many of the the older ratings I have so far since I didnt put as much thought into them.

I tried Beck; it's pretty good...I'm glad you convinced me to give it a try =) I take back what I say before...the artwork's not that bad when you start to read it...it especially like the dog...patchwork always gets to me in the end...I've given it a 3.5* at the moment but I will continue reading so it's subject to change =)

That's good =D and ye I agree about sasuke...although I never gave the series enough time to see him grow up I also never paid much attention to spoiler warnings; guessing I'd never take the series up again...his brother's story seems really sad...whereas even in shippuden where sasuke should have matured with the rest of the characters he still seems a bit angsty and self involved =S
