Um ... I think the first time I realized the thing ANIME was when my friends & I became hugely fascinated by the magical world of Magic Knight Rayearth. After that, I paid much more attention to Ghibli Productions, and went on to collect many MRK and anime related graphics.
However, all those precious documents were lost, and after a few years, our fanaticism deterioratd to the occasional mention, but now I'm back with an interest in MAKING graphics, and surfing for more.
My all-time favourite anime is ONE PIECE, but I also love Furuba (Fruits Basket), Groove Adventure Rave, Gudam SEED and of course, all of Miyazaki's works.
Hoping to see you around, Me. =)
