I should probably spend more time in this thread welcoming new duders and dudettes... @omegapirate:
Welcome! New... *checks profile* duder! Definitely duder! Welcome to the smallest of the Whiskey communities, don't let that put you off though, it's cosy here and we're getting bigger each day.
Haha, so ZP is bribing people over here is he? Fair enough, the more the merrier, I can't guarantee he'll make good on his promise though, I haven't seen any hookers or riches lying around.
I've only really started gaining the bulk of my anime/manga knowledge in the past 2 or so years, but I think I've learned quite a lot, just try out a bunch of different things and see what you like, if I were you I'd go on CrunchyRoll
and try stuff until something grabs you.
