    What was your journey to become an LN and anime fan(addict)?
    For me it went: cartoons > manga > anime > manga > LN

    a bit of BakaTsuki for Mushoku Tensei but it was through Rock's recommendation that I find Slime and NovelUpdates

    before that I was a physical book reader/collector, so my bookworming began when I was quite young

    I have been watching the 80's anime series ever since I was young (though I'm not an 80's kid) so yeh it all started there

    my first anime Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood on Animax ignoring Card Captors Sakura, DBZ, Ninja Robots on Cartoon Network, which led me to read the manga and get the story.....
    my first LN was SAO when i saw a FB post on it.....and it led me to BT and the novels and also the harsh DMCA plague that swept in.....
    my first WN was Tales of Demons and Gods coz i read the Naruto lookalike manhua.....

    anime (Speed Racer) > manga (don't remember) > CN (Stellar Transformation on spcnet) > other LN (started with Legendary Moonlight Sculptor; read some JPN, but prefer KRN)

    Never really took to the JP LN/WN series of those times (Baka-Tsuki era), so didn't mention them.

    old animes from Toonami ( back when it was just a segment of cartoon network and not a separate channel) like zoids, beyblade, yu gi oh as well as the old pinoy dubbed animes shown in GMA and ABS-CBN like dragon ball, flame of recca, and ghost fighter. transfered to regular anime then manga, went to look for the LN of kono suba ended up in sythewood and finally here in NU
