Your level of anime fandom
We all watch and enjoy anime here, correct? If not and you're on this blog, that means you're either just getting started with anime, or you've stumbled here by accident! Welcome to you newcomers, but please excuse me while I focus in on those of us that have been familiarized with all that anime has to offer. It's how we've become such big fans over the years! Or huge fans...or gigantic fans...or super mega fans...
Just like a relationship with a real person, there are many levels to liking anime. On a most basic level, you can enjoy anime from time to time, and just happen upon it whenever something comes across your path. On the completely other end of the spectrum are the die-hard anime fans. Their houses are shrines to everything anime, they own every single piece of anime merchandise you can think of, and they only interact with real-life people by using anime dialog/mannerisms!
I'm guessing that most of us fall somewhere inbetween those two, and that leaves a rather wide open space for us to explore. Anime fandom brings in all levels of fans, some more dedicated than others. If I had to mark myself, I'd say that I'm a pretty hardcore anime fan...as much as my free time allows me to be, anyway! I watch anime on TV through shows and DVD/Blu-ray, I keep up with news via the internet and magazines, and I'm always on the lookout for new content.
Just how deep are you into anime? Tell us something about your anime interest that you feel exemplifies just how much you enjoy anime. There's no shame in telling us just how into anime you are. No worries about anyone judging you here. We're all just curious to see how big our anime fans are!
