Back in the 20th century I enjoyed watching Anime, and unfortunately in those days to discover good Anime was a chore that could have been the thirteen task of Hercules. Sometimes not even a subbed version was available, or even worse dubbed in Mandarin (no disrespect to Chinese folks) and VHS tapes; all factors which led me to lose interest in this art.
2015 marks my return to Anime and nowadays we've glorious Full HD, DD/DTS, the Internet and I'm overjoyed to be back and also to join the MAL community; it feels like going home after a long trip, the smell of fresh-cut grass, or the warmth of the sun in the middle of a chilly breeze.
Manifesto #1 I've watched all the Anime listed here since 2015 (not including stuff I only watched before my hiatus). #2 I've watched all the Anime listed here with Japanese audio plus English subtitles (I hate dubbed Anime). #3 I've watched 100% of my completed list (I do not skip filler, recap, opening/ending, etc). #4 I've a minimalist approach, thus even though I watch single episode OVAs or short specials, I don't add them to my completed list.
