Welcome to Anime Vision (AV): a community where everyone can come together to discuss anime and anime-related issues (umm, because that's what it says in our comm description:) Hopefully this will become a great place for fans to come together to share their thoughts and exchange ideas.
Since jester and I just created this comm today, please give us a little while to get things updated and in order, but please feel free to post and introduce yourself.
And since I'm the first poster, here I go:
I'm a 30 year old stay at home mom, so I'm probably a bit older than the average anime fan...but I don't think that matters a whole lot! I've been watching anime for several years and I have what I like to think is a fairly broad taste--which means that I'll watch just about anything. I also like to finish a series once I start it because I like to have stuff completed and find out what actually happens at the end (even if it doesn't really end).
I currently own over 700 legally purchased dvds and about a TB full of fansubs. Please note that that was a dvd count and not a series/title count. The series/title number is somewhere around 230 or so for the legally purchased stuff, and I really don't have a clue what's all on my hard drive. I'm going to get around to doing an accurate inventory one of these days. And no, before you ask, I haven't been able to watch all of it, but I'm working on it!
I've known jester in real life for about 8 years now, and we've always wanted to have a place where we could go to have great discussions about anime; so when we both got accounts at DW, we thought we'd go ahead and make a place to do just that. So feel free to join us! Because we would love to not be the only two having an in depth discussion about the themes in Ergo Proxy, and why everyone should watch Saint Seiya at least once (I laughed so hard that I cried!)
So welcome to Anime Vision...because we all dream in anime every once in a while...
...and because it's a special occasion, I'll even pull out the FLCL icon :)
