I'm a thirty something art history major with a penchant for anime. My first intro into Japanimation was Astro Boy, followed by Science Ninja Team Gatchman (aka Battle of the Planets). The rest, as they say, is history. I am a fan of Rumiko Takahashi's Ranma 1/2 and her Mermaid saga. Most recently (the last 5 years) is Inuyasha. GITS; Full Metal Alchemist and Bastard!! are other anime series favs of mine.
