Early 1990s when I started watching The Transformers (1984), though that was before I learned that not all cartoons are American (However, while the classic Speed Racer series was the second anime I got into, you may consider this what made me the anime fan I'm today if you don't consider the original Trasnformers to be anime)

Save Anime and Manga!

Back in late April, Otaku USA and a few news sources reported about the petition seeking to push the United Nations to illegalize the worldwide distribution of anime and manga (excl. in Japan). Good news is now there is a petition to crusade against this terror. To defend your freedom to watch anime and read manga, please sign this force-of-good petition at change.org.

Anime Online Viewing Status of 6/06/2015

Today, I finished watching Fleet Girls Collection - KanColle Animation Sequence. It is one of the best family cartoon shows Japan has to offer up to date. I hope it gets an official R1 DVD release, and I look forward to seeing the the series' sequel.

In the meantime, I still have Gundam Reconguista in G to finish watching. I believe I'm still at episode 8.

News: Worldwide Distribution of anime and manga maybe in Danger

Today is a sad day for otaku communities worldwide. For according to Otaku USA's website, a jerk in Berlin launched a petition intended to persuade the United Nations into making the international distribution of all anime and manga illegal, alleging that anime and manga threaten the morality of young people. So far, only 385 people signed the petition itself, but let's hope the ban never happens for our sake and for the sake of the Japanese media. I mean, hasn't Japan suffered enough?
