I'm just a film major who will watch about everthing within reason. I started watching anime when I was about in fifth grade with 'Sonic X' (about 3 times, 1 subbed), then got more serious the summer before 9th grade with subbed, so over 7 years. (Anybody who counts 'Avatar: The Last Airbender,' I grew up on it. I was six when it came out.)
My first subbed anime was recommendend to me by my brother after he finished it, "Shugo Chara," and I have since expanded.
I prefer more dark-toned series but I am open to everything.
I try to watch stuff not as entertainment, but more so to understand what I am getting myself into. Lately, I have been very interested in studio mentality; how a studio affects the works it puts out and any signature details they have. Directors are included in this.
Looked/Looking into: Satoshi Kon, KyoAni, Makoto Shinkai, Orange, Atsuki Ishizuka
I have a movie review channel on YouTube that covers anime, television, and movies (plus some other related material) that I mainly do because I want to specialize in editing and this keeps me on any editing software.
