Hey my name's Bryan and I've been watching anime since the late 90s. Back then I just caught whatever premium cable like Showtime and Encour had to offer. Ninja Scroll, Goku Midnight Eye, Vampire Hunter D all come to mind. However enjoyable, I was never hooked by any of these titles. It wasn't until Adult Swim started airing the likes of Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, and FLCL that I truly became a full fledged anime fan. Since then I tend to always be currently tied to one series or another and will typically watch a movie or two in-between. I VERY MUCH enjoy receiving recommendations so feel free to message me some titles to watch and I will definitely check them out in time. I don't read manga, not that I really dislike it or anything. I just don't have the resources. I realize there is plenty available freely via the www, but I'm just not one of those people who can get into reading stories off of my pc or phone or whatever. So yeah, no manga at this point. I rate anime strictly on a 1-10 overall enjoyment level.
