I'll chronicle my attempts to no longer be a newfag. Although I've actually been lurking since 2005 or so I stuck only to /b/. Now I'm branching out into new boards and their own rules...
Clever idea, bro.
I sorta ruined anime and manga for myself. The first one I actually watched/read seriously the Naruto saga, which happens to be the generally-agreed-upon most cliche and buzzworded anime of all time. Then, after a 3-year anime hiatus where I basically did nothing related to Anime, I stumbled across AMV Hell 4 and saw the scene in End of Evangelion where Unit-02 goes SHIT JUST GOT REAL. I then proceeded to watch the entire NGE backwards starting from End of Evangelion.Needless to say, I've spoiled my appetite with the rotten raw pork of anime and then the ambrosia and nectar of anime.
I find your blog fun to read and very addicting, so I've decided to Follow you. I have a blog as well, which you can follow if you're interested. It's the life story of a badass, modern Pecos-Bill-type character told in daily vignettes. I'm looking for actual readers, rather than just clickers/supporters, so if anyone's interested, feel free to take a look. =)http://tornadojackson.blogspot.com/
