I figured that I would post in the intros section as my first post since I usually never do that on a forum. I tend to get carried away when I start writing stuff, so I try to at least make sure the grammar and spelling on everything is correct (kind of). Anyway, let me explain how I got here… I’ll start from the beginning.
About two years ago, the first anime I watched all the way through was Fullmetal Alchemist. So earlier this year I was talking to one of my friends about anime and mentioned that the only anime I had ever really gotten into was Fullmetal Alchemist, he told me to watch Code Geass. I really liked it, and so rather than staying in the same genre, he told me to watch Lucky Star.
I was more than a little confused since he had me go from Action, Drama-ish, sort of mecha anime to… a slice-of-life comedy about a group girls with no real plot. Well, since I’ve been known to enjoy shows about nothing (Seinfeld), I watched it anyway and enjoyed it. Code Geass and Fullmetal Alchemist were good for a few little laughs, but this was pretty funny throughout the entire series. So six days ago, I was thinking that there must be another anime like Lucky Star out there.
Azumanga Daioh was apparently just the anime I was looking for. But where was I going to watch it? Well I found it here, so I signed up, and watched it all the way through. Azumanga Daioh was really funny so I started watching other stuff here as well.
Every anime series I mentioned, I watched the dubbed versions of because I just didn’t like the subtitles. While watching through Clannad I got to the last two episodes which aren’t dubbed. I was kind of disappointed, but I figured that if I’m going to watch lots of anime, I’m eventually going to run into shows that aren’t dubbed. So I decided that if I can watch a movie with subtitles (senior year of high school I had to watch a movie in Portuguese with English subtitles), then I can definitely watch an entire anime series with subtitles. Although my preference is still dubbed, I have absolutely no problem watching anime subbed if I really have to.
So that’s the semi-condensed version of what brought me here. So hello and everything like that I’m sure I’ll explore the forum more eventually, but right now, I have to decide what I should watch next. Bye!
