Disclaimer: I have a naturally argumentative personality. I absolutely never mean to offend anyone. I just like semi-heated discussion.
With that said, I've been watching anime ever since I was little. My babysitter owned box sets of Ronin Warriors, Voltron, and Transformers, so there was no escaping the tractor beam that is anime. The first series that I remember watching on network TV was (and is probably the same for a lot of people my age) Sailor Moon on Fox. I'll always remember my first...
Anyways... I hold anime to the same standards as regular TV and Film. I'm also little picky about presentation. There has to be consistency in character design, and expressiveness. For me, when I find interesting characters (and I tend to hate or not care about 90% of scripted characters), I'm hooked. I can forgive a lot of things if I'm in love with characters (i.e Naruto). But on the flipside, it's hard for me to overlook stereotypes.
Please feel free to leave your thoughts on anything I've said anywhere on this site. I'll be more than happy to strike up a conversation.
