O & E: My History in Watching Anime

“It is good to be young and single. Once you got a real girl partner, you will stop and put these things away.”

When I watch these, I am always watching alone. Since sharing this to non-Anime fans (in my case, my brother or parents) will just make them more uninterested in my favoritism.

It is a long history to start. So let’s begin! I will be dividing my story into Sagas or Eras.
