So I've been into anime for quite a long time. You know, I'm that guy who was into Sailor Moon back in the day because that's all there was besides the Sci-Fi channel stuff. (Oh Man, do you remember Roujin-Z? Gall Force? I do.) And then as anime was made more available through retailers such as Suncoast and Media Play. They had all the stuff you could want. That was when I had free time, that was when I had a NewType subscription to sample every anime I could ever want. I developed my own tastes after experiencing all sorts of different kinds of anime over the years. Now that I'm out of high school, and I've started working, it's harder to find out which anime fits my needs. There was a point when I had a falling out with anime, but now we're in a love-hate relationship. There's a few here and there that I try, but every time I sample something new it's usually something I've seen before, or something that had the potential to be executed so much better.
So yeah. I've been watching anime for a long time. I think I have the right to poke fun a little bit at it. I mean, can you honestly say that anime isn't like that?
Evangelion wins big at the Tokyo International Anime Fair. While Gurren Lagann, Gundam 00, and Death Note also had wins in other categories.
Of course, congrats to Tekkonkinkreet, an anime I have never heard of before...
