When you started getting into things like comics/manga/anime/visual-kei/etc were you living in the US or Greece at the time? Was there a fan scene or friends that you shared this stuff with or were you on your own with you hobbies?
Hey, that’s a really interesting question. It was mostly me and the computer staying up till the morning hours leeching things off IRC. Aside from a couple people who were nice enough to send me bootlegs of X and Malice Mizer concerts, it was mostly just my own thing.
Comics were a bit more widespread, locally, but still by late junior-high everybody was thinking about souped up mopeds and girls and I was kind of like “hey look at this scrooge comic book it’s like from when he was a kid woah”.
How about you? I’d dig hearing some of the stories behind the great stuff you post.
