Hello! I'm Crystal. To be frank, it's been way too long since I last stepped foot into any forum... and the ones that I was once active in either moved to Reddit (which I still can't seem to fully grasp how to operate it) or completely deactivated, haha. So, it's nice to see an anime forum floating around that I can freely talk about my interest without much worry compared to my other social media!
A bit about how I got into anime: I've gotten into anime sometime... whenever 2006 happened, I think? I forgot what year it was, but I just know it was around the time when I was in middle school that I unknowingly got into anime (if I'm excluding the entire Pokemon, Digimon, Yugioh shows). Watched whatever that aired on TV. Funimation and Toonami started introducing anime that, in a couple of years, got me realizing that they were from Japan, lmao. Down the rabbit hole I went... watching a ton of those 2000s/2010s anime. Though since I've finished school and started working, it's taking me some time to crawl back to my large backlogs and watch a few seasonal anime when I have the chance. Some of my all time favorites are Kara no Kyoukai, Ergo Proxy, and Shinsekai Yori. Recent ones I'm watching at the moment is Otherside Picnic and Yashahime.
Hope to make some friends with you all, make great memories, and talk about a ton of anime and manga ! Thank you for having me! You can also find me on Twitter at @animeminafans if you ever want to talk outside of the forum too!
