    Hello all

    Ok, so I FINALLY found a good place to watch anime online so I'm really happy about that. I've been living and working in China and Japan for the last 9 years and this is one of the only things that I can find that have English subtitles- so it's a big help. I've been into anime and manga for a very long time...just about 24 years. When I was in the US I had a large collection and most people thought I was crazy, until anime and manga finally went semi-mainstream. Every Friday I would go to a small import shop or drive 2 hours to get to Little Tokyo to find them...and I actually miss that a lot, but finding both new and old online is really great.

    I really can't remember my first anime or manga...and I don't really have a 'favorite' anymore. This is the only way I get any mental stimulation these days as I now live in the mountains of China in a remote town where I'm the only person who speaks English (well besides my husband but he's Chinese and doesn't talk to me all that much since we're always busy). So I spend all my time searching out new manga and anime. Up until last week it was really for me to find any anime with English subtitles. I can speak some Japanese and some Chinese but I'm not fluent enough to keep up with the dialogue (Japanese or Chinese dubbed which are easiest to find here). I actually found AnimeHere while reading manga on Mangafox.

    I'm into a broad range of genres but I don't like horror at all- and most Shounen is not really my thing either but if it's got a good story I'll watch. Shoujo is OK but it does get annoying when they are all weak women...so I try to mix it up as much as possible. Yaoi is my favorite, but it really just depends on what I find interesting at the moment.

    I'm currently watching Full Metal Panic Second Raid (since I really liked the first one but never could get any of the rest before), Hanbun No Tsuki ga Noboru Sora, and I'm trying to find a place to watch uragiri wa boku no namae wo shitteiru. It's a little tricky since I'm in China and we're behind 'The Great Firewall' so I have to bounce around looking for places that I have access to and rotating free proxies (they get shut down if the government notices them).

    I'm just really glad that someone was nice enough to make a site like this and I was lucky enough to find it- if anyone on the staff reads this please pass on my thanks to the rest. Thank you.

    Hi, I'm Koichi.
    So you like yaoi? Do you know "Yellow"? It's one of my favorite Mangas.

    Hello Daiuke Dark-
    Never really got around to reading Gakuen Heaven (watched the anime though) and I actually don't really know the English names of any of the manga I read...just the Japanese. Now a Daisuke x dark combo would be really NICE to read!
