Hooked up in 04. I had inadvertently watched a little on tv during the early 90s as well though. Speed racer was the first. A traumatic experience. Animatrix was the earliest, in a sense, that I knew, that this one was anime, and enjoyed it. Founded a club(several dozens of members, who gathered few times a week) back in my fan-days, in mid 05. I had continually supplied my own local anime server, reaching almost 3ters (riffled through all of em too). That was years before the HD era came to modernize anime-world.  Practically abandoned Asian animation on April 08, and had stopped keeping a close watch during 12, but managed to get acquainted with oodles of titles still.

I am a big sports anime aficionado. And enjoy almost any realistic and ripe titles as well. Always on the lookout for arthouse and avant-garde stuff too. I've never learnt Japanese much; so don't have much worth watching nowadays. Besides amvs of course. That's why I returned to cinema for the most part. But prefer well-executed animation regardless of the country of origin anyway ;).

 Started reading manga profusely in late 09 and novellas in 16.

Welp. Erm...you got me there. Looks like you've seen a few anime based off Kenji's work (like Yodaka no Hoshi), which is kewl. Heh; funny enough, there's another story with the same name that I've been trying to find for about two years now after my former professor's website went down
Is good to see someone else who doesn't like Haruhi Suzumiya though :p

Only been here about two years in total now - this time for a little over a year, and before I was here for about ten months. Have another year ahead, and maybe another after that (assuming the town likes me). In Tokyo it's pretty dayumn expensive, from rent to food. Out in the countryside (which ironically is usually considered anywhere not Osaka-Tokyo-Kyoto-Kobe-Nagoya) it gets a bit better...though electricity and food is pretty high. No more paying 180 roubles for an apple not in season pls...or the same for 200g of chicken...which is the cheapest meat you can get...

I translated a little bit for a class I had once - only ever did the first volume for a Warcraft manga from English to Japanese. Adding all the retcons and making the plot interesting to read was not the easiest. Am sure it might be available somewhere, maybe :D

Heh - you're talking to one as well :p Yeh, Russia seems to have quite its share of issues lately - and having some active wars doesn't help. Having a set place is quite aight - beats bouncing around all over the place not sure where to go. Can always find local-ish stuff near ya; it's what I've done pretty much the whole time while here, and there's been some unique stuff I've found

That's a question I constantly ask myself. If I want to continue on here, it's not an easy task what with fully learning the language and having anything prior in the US not really count for anything. At the same time though where I was in the US isn't too good either, but I could move in with my current gf...or go for someone here and make living here possible so eh...is not an easy choice. For a good while I considered getting one of those online Teaching English as a Foreign Language 'degrees' and going to Ukraine/Romania until I remembered my loan situation and welp

Yeh, it was a nice idea but sheeze was it a lot of effort. Plus it was easy to miss a person (or five)

Hallo hallo
Yeh, do indeed 'teach' over here in a roundabout sort of way. Ye, moving isn't the easiest to do - especially if you have any kind of ties to a region or town. Nothing particularly wrong with staying in one town either; is more the norm than many let on.
Ye - way back when I used to be one of the greeters before eventually stopping due to getting busy with everything else

If you're interested in some unusual/out there animu, Night on the Galactic Railway is pretty decent

oh, it's on, Jet. I started slacking too but now I'll make sure I beat you by at least one :)

Hi Jet! the more anime I watch, the harder it is to find original stuff, which is y I like shorts - you do too, I see. and I found some inspo in your best lists, thanks
