well, congrats on the anniversary I'm sure they'll be many many more to come. I have been watching anime since i can remember. Mazenger Z and voltron come to mind as some of the first anime that i watched...since then i have seen alot, and collected my fair share of anime on both DVD and VHS...i love the art and imagination that they can put into anime. all the worlds that thay can show...i'm getting older, and i think i'll contiune to like and watch anime as long as my eyes work.
so do you know what area of anime you really like yet? For me its always been the robots, and anything sci-fi...back then and today my tastes havent really changed that much.
