Shonen Fanatic does anime review on all of your favorite animes, especially the shonen variation. I might do some other genres in between but I will do shonen types most of the times. Check out my site for new anime review.

It’s Only the Beginning

I’ve been watching anime since I was a child, Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon, Samurai Pizza Cats (who remembers that one?). I remember receiving my first anime figure, it was a Macross Variable fighter. It was awesome and I didn’t even know what Macross was.

Even though my entryway to anime seems so mainstream, what really pulls me to anime is the cutting edge storytelling. A lot of concepts and stylings are really exciting and not being told in the Western world and I can’t get enough of it.

I hope to share the same passion and views that I have with the world.
