A friend tried to get me to watch Naruto for like a year, i finally gave in and started watching it. After have seen some episodes i was like "Wtf is this ****, this sucks", but i keept on watching anyway. Then it got to the Zabuza fight, and i started enjoying it. Watched through Naruto and then i started pick up other shows, now i probaly the one that is the most anime geek of me and all my friends. This was around two years ago, and according to my profile at anime-planet
i have wasted over a month of my life on anime since then, but that don't register the shows i have rewatched.
