I've gotten into anime around 2004. My country had one channel that broadcasted anime and that's how I got hooked onto stuff like Yu Yu Hakusho, Kaleido Star, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun and Kiddy Grade to name a few.
I'm a huge fan of Precure, having seen every season twice now. I'm willing to check out anything that's a magical girl anime! I also look for Shoujou ai, anything with an interesting premise, character designs that look promising or anything that catches my eye.
