I started watching anime when I around 10 on Toonami. Dragon Ball Z, Tenchi Muyo, Gundam and others were my first taste of Japanese animation. Growing up, I kept anime in my life though Adult Swims block of anime shows that included Trigun, Yu Yu Hakusho and Cowboy Bebop. Hitting age 18 I started to reach to the internet for anime, getting in to new genres and finding old gems. I started to watch more experimental anime and shows that weren't very popular, some good, some bad. Now at the age of 22 I am re-watching some of my old favorights as well as watching some that have been on my plan-to-watch list for years. I plan to keep anime in my life as long as it keeps it's amazing art and storylines.
Something else to note, I probably won't ever watch some shows, that list includes Death Note, Naruto, Lucky Star and anything with exessive fan service or lack of plot.
