    Hello, wonderful ones! I'm just your friendly neighborhood alley cat. Nickname: Alley Tidbits: I'm a mother of a wonderful 5-year-old son and I am in my late twenties now. I've been a fan of anime since I was a toddler tbh and I'm okay with it. I'm not huge on anime/manga/video games as I use to be. It comes with age, but I'm still a kid at heart. I am down to earth, goofy as hell, and love adorable things.

    Yahallo! Iโ€™m new to AF and (being new and all) was looking for a club when I found the light novel club and just had to join. Iโ€™m creating this topic so this club can be less dead-ified! Anyways I started watching anime a couple months ago, did the whole otaku transformation thing and then found light novels and was like Ooooooooh- must get! And ever since Iโ€™ve loved reading light novels more so than reading manga and better than some anime shows. Now, I have sadly yet to finish a series, but I am a hardcore reader and can finish a 300 page book in like 3-4 hours (if I have the time). But more recently Iโ€™ve found that if I split up my book reading marathons, I get more out of them and like them more! So Iโ€™ve been reading smaller portions of books (like for instance, 1 No Game No Life chapter or ~ 1/5 of the book) whenever I have the chance. So thatโ€™s all from me (for now), maybe I can help liven up this club? I know with 3 members (probably 2, itโ€™s been a while since one member logged on) it probably wonโ€™t get very exciting, but Iโ€™m gonna try my best!

    Nice to meet you @Persona (โ€ขยฏ โˆ€ ยฏโ€ข) I'm Wedgy, or Grace if you prefer names. I think we have a lot in common. I'm mid-twenties with my own bun in the oven and I adore cute things myself. What I watch often shifts with my mood, but I prefer short series with good stories. I think you're right that our tastes change with age. There are a lot of series I used to watch in my teens I probably wouldn't have given any thought to had I learned of them now. Anyway, you seem like a cool and pleasant person so I hope I get to see you around more. (>^_^)><(^_^<) Ta for now!

    Himeji for sure! Mirai Nikki is a favorite anime in general and Yuki defined the word yandere. Lol. Death Note, lord...I both loved/loathed that series. Also, thanks so much for the kind words and wonderful welcome! Hello, fellow late 20s friend! It's great to know lovely people who have similar taste as me.

    I would say that most taste change with age. The only difference is ones personal preferences of what they consider to be better with their age range. For myself, I use to give any anime a chance and watched a wide range of genres. Now it is narrowed down to more of a slice of life, psychological, dark and out of the box animes. Though I do fancy my mecha animes, just not as passionate as I use to be. P.s. Thank you for the welcome. /).(\

    Welcome to the community. Like @ArchieKun my interest has mainly gone up with age, though it has more to do with my annoyance of how a lot of stuff where I live just does not seem to be enjoyable, or even have as much substance. I hope you enjoy your time here.

    Hello AF hope everyone had a good Halloween, and that you continue to have some awesome holidays. I just wanted to make a quick announcement regarding some changes we have made to better the experience here at AF for all members. We have decided to amend our no swearing rule. This means going forward members are permitted to swear, or use curses in their conversations on the forums. This however dose not permit the use of curses for derogatory purposes such as insulating/harassing another member. It simply means you may swear in conversations like we all do naturally. Additionally there is a message storage limit of 100 PMs for new members, but once you have posted a few times that number jumps all the way to 250. Thank you for taking the time to read this little update.

    So after years of being told to watch it, I've finally started watching Code Geass. 5 eps in and it's pretty good so far.

    Ooo, the way you described it had me wanting to know more. I will definitely try to watch it tomorrow then. It is my day off and my kiddo will be in school and the hubby at work. So I have the day to myself! Lol. The moments of peace you strive for. But itโ€™s the moment with them I live for. Iโ€™m so happy youโ€™ve finally succeeded! @Roxeg, thanks so much!

    @Persona welcome to the forum it is nice to see another cat around here... We're a pretty plesant group with a wide variety of tastes to talk about. I've found myself leaning towards reverse harems and romance as I age, but I still love my space operas snd darker series as well. Slice of life is something I enjoy on occasion. I enjoy crime/mystery anime as well but hsve had trouble finding good ones that do not hsve a hsrem as the main focus. Seems to be a 50/50 shot with that genre for me.

    It was strange for sure, but I really liked it. It has a very "timeless" feel to it, like if it was to be released today, it would still make as much sense in today's society as it did twenty years ago. That opening song is pretty good too. The guitar notes at the end are nice.

    No problem. Yeah, that is true that tastes change with age. For me, I kind of what to see some kind of story, where there is growth in the characters, such as those found in many of the routes in the Clannad VN. I do enjoy comedies too, but in that area, I am more a fan of Barakamon and Baka & Test than Grand Blue. I sometimes experiment with other genres though, as I might find something enjoyable, especially because if I stuff with detective, mystery, or crime fiction, things would be as tiring as the shows on Investigation Discovery.

    That is a very solid point you make to be sure. I did not even consider that probably because I have not had nor do I use live tv in over 12 years. Most of my media digest including anime comes from the internet. Though as you mentioned in the early 2000s thats when a lot of cable providers particularly the ones in America were offering a wide international selection where anime kept pooing up. Even though this is largely no longer the case it still helped push the community into the future, I am also going to move this topic to anime section. I think it will find a better home there.

    I feel the same way. I watched FMA around 2003 which was well before FMAB was a thing (outside of course its source material,) and loved it then. As such it was my first exposure to the story and naturally it's what I envision when somebody mentions it. I actually didn't even know that FMAB was a thing until about 2012 or so, and didn't even take the time to watch it until this year. Both of them have different plots going for them and they have extraordinary differences the farther in the series you go. So it wouldn't really be fair to compare them I think. They're distinctly different animes to me as far as I'm concerned and I enjoyed both.

    First crush: Earliest I can remember would be Setsuna Meioh, aka Sailor Pluto. I honestly watched the series after I was 21, but the eyes and hair were amazing to me. Then, I started watching Fairy Tail and fangirl hard over Erza Scarlet. So strong, and loves her friends with all of her being. And I honestly couldn't help myself.

    Took me some time to get through Heibane Renmei but finally did it - great series, might have one of my favourite endings, and might be one of my favourite shows! Now watching High Score Girl, need something funny and ... "emotionally demanding" - at least it seems so, head lot of good stuff about it!
