Ah I see, for the most part I was more into the fantasy genre in novels. I watched movies with friends but as entertainment on my own I prefer fantasy novels. I was never really that interested in Scifi until anime to be honest. I liked stuff like Star Wars but was not really what you'd call an avid viewer. I started watching anime when I was like five though, but more casually like when I buy videos from Hong Kong but did not really get into it until a friend from highschool started lending me her manga and I really got into anime and manga.
Nah. I was a huge Sci-Fi fan before I became a moderate Anime viewer. Hell, before Code Geass (which got me hooked the moment I saw it) I was not really a huge anime fan at all. CG actually rekindled my interest in it completely when most (like Naruto) were just enjoyable.
