I have just started writing DBZ fanfic as of 2005, though I've had ideas before this is the first time I've published them online. I've always liked Anime since Robotech and Voltron, and the days of Starblazers. Dragon Ball came to the US in 1994 and I really liked it then, but didn't realize how much the show was 'changed' for the american market. I became more of an Anime fan after dating a guy in 1995 who loved Ranma 1/2 and Fist of the Northstar. Since then I've slowly grown in my love for Anime in general. Now I'm hopelessly hooked to DBZ, Full Metal Alchemist, and Inuyasha. I enjoy learning about new Anime series and others that exist out there, and the joy of seeing the subtitled versions versus dubbed.
