When I was 13, I was introduced (exposed) to anime by my cousin. Ever since then I have been watching a lot of anime. Been addicted to it at one point before xD I would buy figurings, posters and merchandise for the sake of the anime.
If the certain manga was made into an anime, I prefer to watch the anime rather than reading the manga. Unless I read the manga first and an anime was made. Most live action re-makes don't follow the manga and story line accurately which disappoints me. Therefore, I rather just watch the anime and read manga.
I have watched a LOT of anime and I can't remember all of them right now. But I will just post the anime that I really enjoyed watching.
So here's what I would rate under my top 5 anime.
#5 Ranma 1/2
Synopsis : During martial arts training in China, Ranma fell into the Spring of Drowned Girl. The spring was cursed so that who ever fell into it would take on the appearance of a girl when splashed with cold water. Hot water reverses the effect. This leads to several hilarious situations between Ranma and his friends and causes him to be the center of affection for several characters in the series, both male and female.
Synopsis : Risa Koizumi, taller than the average girl, and Atsushi Ootani, shorter than the
average guy—their constant bickering and comical love-hate relationship is well-known
throughout the school. They act similarly and love the same music, and their friendship is full of laughing, shouting at each other, and of course, lots of jokes about one another's height. But when Risa notices her feelings for Ootani growing, she's worried. She doesn't know if he can ever see her as more than a friend. With her friends rooting for her, she struggles to make him see how she feels about him, and that a romantic relationship between a tall girl and a short guy can work. Oblivious Ootani doesn't make things easy for her, but she stubbornly perseveres in her own unconventional way, determined for her feelings to get through to him, and finally be returned. If only she could do it without driving herself and everyone else crazy in the process...
Synopsis : Detroit Metal City (DMC) is a quickly rising independent death metal band. They garner fame by performing wild live shows and writing songs filled with hate, violence, and rape. The band is fronted by Sōichi Negishi, who takes on the stage name Krauser II. On stage he is a wild, unchained beast. Off-stage he is a tranquil, tender-loving person who enjoys Swedish pop music. He hates himself as Krauser and his two personalities collide, making his private life very difficult.

So these are the anime that I enjoy watching. Detroit Metal City and Lovely Complex are really hilarious. Good to watch when you want to past time xD Ranma1/2 is an older anime but I still enjoy the plot though it can be draggy at times lol.
Death Note is so so good. Very smart characters. And yes Naruto. Awesome. Not the fillers. The serious fighting parts. Just so good.
Last Monday (21 August), I had an excursion with classmates I never met before (from online class). We had a podtour called Dirt, Death and Disease taken from ABC Melbourne. My group of 5 were given the task of walking around the city stopping at the given stops on the map.
Though there were 13 stops in total (we only managed to do 10), I'm gonna post pictures of one particular stop called, Hosier Lane. Known for its artistic graffiti. Awesome.
This is graffiti! I can't do something so precise like that! And creative. This whole lane has graffiti all over and it has become a tourist attraction. Awesome xD I didn't manage to take pictures of all the graffiti. But just wanna display what I call art :)
Before the excursion, me and a friend were walking around the city and ate cakes and dessert. Happy xD
