I first started watching anime around 5 years old. At that time when my dad was watching me he would sit me on the couch and put on Toonami and we would watch the shows together. Of course, at the time I didn’t know what anime was. I was happy just absentmindedly watching cartoons. I think the first show I actually started watching by myself was Sailor Moon. (of course)
This eventually lead to watching Yu Yu Hakusho, lots of Gundam, Dragon Ball Z, Tenchi Muyo etc. (I think you get the idea). I continued on the Toonami train until it was canceled and started buy manga. I got my first manga in 5th grade which was Inuyasha and then the first series that I actually bought all the books for and finished was Fruits Basket.
I will spare you my entire auto-bio but I just graduated college with my anime and manga obsession still going strong. I got a job and now I can actively pay for my addiction (greatest feeling by the way).
I decided that I could make a little money on the side by sharing my experiences with anime, manga, and Japan, since it’s something I spend a lot of free time doing anyway. I am by no means a professional writer, but I do love to talk (in this situation write) about anime and manga and I can’t think of a better way to do it other than here!
So please sit back and enjoy. And please leave comments on my Facebook page or on any post. I love reading other people’s experiences!
