it's kind of always been there. my brother and i grew up watching DBZ, pokemon, digimon, and other shows on tunami. i started reading manga when i found cased closed (i was 7 so arguably too young to be reading it). I kinda left it for a bit in high school, but started watching HunterxHunter and dove back into anime and manga. I even caught up with Naruto Shippuden right before it ended, though i cant say my schoolwork benefitted.
