Six months ago I started hanging out at the anime club at my college and I started getting obsessed with anime.
People at the anime club were always talking about 4chan's /b/. I went to /b/ for a week or two, shit was ok, there were some pretty cool threads.
Then I was like "cool, 4chan has an anime board, I'm obsessed with anime now I should probably check that shit out." I lurked for a bit and noticed "hmm, this Lucky Star anime seems to have a fairly interesting art style, and people seem to enjoy it"
So I watched Lucky Star and loved that shit. Marathoned it straight through didn't get any sleep. That shit was like crack.
And after that I started posting on /a/ instead and I haven't looked back.
