Day 11- How did you get into Anime and what was the first Anime you watched?

I watched Pokemon and Cardcaptor Sakura as a kid but I didn't really know they were anime at the time. I was a big fan of Avatar the last airbender and after watching that I went to check out anime. The first one I went for was Fullmetal Alchemist.

Day 11: It was a self discovery! And quite a random one at that. My first anime I properly watched a few episodes of was Attack on Titan and then I had friends from uni recommend a few anime later and I havent looked back :)

Day 11- How did you get into Anime and what was the first Anime you watched?

Had some wonky internet for a while during Highschool. Found out about anime and decided to download some series to watch when the internet went down. Cant quite remember what my first was, but the first series I ever watched all the way through was probably FMA.

Day 13- The worst Anime you have watched?

Absolute Duo. Think I gave that a 3 or 4 on MAL.
There are several on my dropped list but that is one I ended up watching all of.

Day 13- worst anime I have watched:

I don't think I have watched enough series to even come across one that I just couldn't finish. That being said, i would go with Parasyte as the worst one ive seen all the through. Not that I think its absolutely god awful and no one should watch it but its just on the bottom of my list. What did it for me was the relationship between Shinchi and Satomi just made me want to pull my hair out at times XD

Day 13- The worst Anime you have watched?

I'll say bleach. Though I don't know about it being the worst. But it's the only one I got bored of and just never wanted to go back to. It is pretty good for the first couple of arcs. But about half way through (IIRC Ep 62-68 I think. It's been a long, long time since I watched it.) I just got bored and moved on to better stuff. It was a "Eh, I'll come back to it" kind of thing, except I never did.

I'll throw this in though. I've not seen it myself, but this is all I need to see to know that it aint good.

Day 14- Do you collect anything?

I have quite a lot of orchids which I guess could be called a collection.
I have some manga series I'm collecting books for too.

Day 14- Do I collect anything?

I did for a time collect retro consoles, but that's on the backburner. But I have a nice collection.

Got 5 Vinyls across 4 albums. 2 Iron Maiden, 1 Sabaton (the 2 disk album) and 1 alestorm.

I'm kind of working on collecting CD's of the bands I like. Currently focusing on picking up Iron Maiden CD's to get all their studio albums. I think I have 4-5/16 so far.

Day 15- Favourite Anime Character?

Alucard/TheCrimsonFukr

He's a pretty cool character, powerful ass vampire that eventually becomes omnipotent, cool style, Decently fleshed out for a stupidly OP character.

And his TFS Abridged version is comedy gold.
