Similar to some people here, I started watching anime on Toonami. I'd get home every day and turn on Dragon Ball Z first thing. As time went on I'd watch all of them, even the late night on adult swim. Staying up until midnight to watch Evangelion, Trigun and GitS. I got really into the movies and would go to borders/suncoast to get new DvD's of anime that I had never heard of, or manga that I wanted to read. Anime has been a constant part of my life ever since.
