Same as Dark, I wanted to interact instead of just responding to discussions. I hoped to find older, more sophisticated minds in here. I remember being a teenager a lot like America remembers the 70s. What was I thinking? Then reliving that on the blogs is boring and tedious.
well, i am new to MAL and tryed to find somewhere to talk about animes, since in university no one like them (never try mecatronic engeneering in brazilian university, you will be the only one there who watch animes or read mangas)
I decided to join this club so as to begin discussing/talkin about manga and anime and other stuff with people. And seeing how I'm beginning to visit this site more often, then I will probably enjoy it a lot more in a community instead of feeling like a "One man wolf pack"
As the thread creator I just want you all to know that I have read everyone's responses and it's great to see all of the reasons to join this club. For me this club is exactly what I was looking for and I hope it is for all of you too.
I hope you all continue to enjoy the 18+ club and participate in the comments discussions as well. (^_^)
I simply enjoy anime as a whole and would love to be recommended to good anime by other people. Plus, there's not many people I know who are interested in a variety of anime like I am at my current age.
While there are some pretty awesome young teenagers and kids out there, the majority of them annoy the snot out of me. I had to wait for my age group to catch up to me and refuse to dumb myself down for the gakkis (I hope I spelled that right lol).
I stumbled upon this when looking around. I'm very shy but I do love anime and very passionate about it. Plus I don't know many people my age that I'm friends with that love anime so I keep the thoughts to myself. Plus I wanted to try being more outgoing. Don't like rp much though.
SteinsGate said: Joined because I think that the anime industry is a big show of art and philosophy, and I wanted to talk about philosophical matters that are discussed in anime with people with different opinions.
I joined because I'm 21 and I love anime and manga. So I figured hey this club sounds like me! Plus I was hoping to discuss anime with people more my own age like other people said since I'm mostly looking for stuff that is aimed at an older audience.
I blame xajrx's profile pic for me being here, it's really sexy LOL
Well, i do love hentais, ecchis, adult animes like Berserk, Hellsing, Elfen Lied, and more importantly, being able to chat with mature anime fans, kinda tired of joining 14 years-old kids groups and stuff.
PS: xajrx, seriously, i loved your profile pic man XD
I joined because this club's theme fits me perfectly. No one around me watches any anime and even when I finally find someone who does watch it, it's either Naruto or Bleach (which I have nothing against but it wouldn't hurt to go non-mainstream).
Also, a pet peeves is when people automatically class you as someone who is childish or immature when you say you watch anime/manga. They just don't get it when I try to explain that anime is NOT the same as your average American Saturday morning cartoons.
So at the end of the day, it's good to know that I can go to a place where we "adults" (which is a loose term mind you) can discuss about anime/manga without ignorant people butting in the way.
