Hey there, fellow chinese cartoon lover!
I started actively watching anime in 2013. I took a first dive into this vast and fascinating universe with Studio Ghibli movies, and the first series that I watched were Hellsing and Attack on Titan (meh, everyone has to start somehow, right?). I have seen many movies and shows and played through several VNs ever since. My most enjoyable experience concerning japanese pop-culture has been reading through G-Senjou no Maou (VN).

I also love most of the Studio Ghibli movies (especially those directed by Miyazaki).
I also enjoy manga, but I only read a few of them. That said, I haven't experienced enough manga to be able to rank or compare. But I definitely plan to discover more in the near future.
