I started really watching anime in the year before I started college, probably around January '07. At that point I only watched Naruto. I got through all of Naruto and caught up to Shippuden before I started my freshman year. However, my best friend introduced me to other anime, starting with FMA, then Bleach. I begrudgingly started to watch them, and then found out how big and great the world of anime really is. After that point, I was sucked in and now watch anime regularly.
I enjoy many types of anime, from Shonen to Mecha to Psychological to Suspense. I've been fortunate to have hit so many of the good shows so far, even though I haven't watched a ton of anime, comparatively.
