Hello, and thank you so much. I don't post my YouTube videos here any more - I felt things were becoming a bit muddled and wanted DA to be for art - but it's great to hear people appreciate the reviews even here.
To answer your question, when I was a teenager I was very into anime but the older I got the less attached to it I got. That's not to say I think it's something you grow out of, but me specifically started finding the humour, voices and writing pretty grinding after a while. There are several I still enjoy though, such as Trigun, Black Lagoon, and Hellsing; things that are a bit more western. Though Hellsing may be stretching it.
NGE was actually one of the first animes I sought out and watched - wow, what an introduction - and I respect how unique it is, but it's not something I'll sit down and watch again. It's like watching Breakind Bad. Yeah, it's good, but Christ, I can't go through all of that another time.
