I don’t remember exactly when I found anime, just that growing up I was obsessed with Dragon Ball Z, Gundam, One Piece, Naruto and whatever else was shown on Toonami. I spent countless hours drawing my own Dragon Ball characters and dreaming of Super Saiyan 5 or creating my own pirate crew to sail on the Grand Line. Even more “obscure” series like Zatch Bell or Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo were incredible. I spent numerous weekend nights watching episode after episode until Adult Swim came on and it was time to go to bed.

I grew out of anime in middle school and high school. It wasn’t until I watched Death Note in college that I was sucked back in. I saw that One Piece was going as strong as ever and wanted to get caught up, so I figured I should read the manga to speed up the process. With that I found the Weekly Shonen Jump app and for the past two years not a day has gone by that I haven’t read a chapter of something.

This blog is just a chance to share some of the joy I get from the series I read and watch. I hope by reading it you find a new series to dig into or decide to pick up a volume of one of those Toonami shows you were also hooked on.

Thanks for reading Read This Way,
