Ever since I became an anime/manga fan back in high school, it never really occurred to me at the time how expensive this hobby can actually be. I remember only living and breathing Sailor Moon because it was the only thing I was introduced to or knew about. Then I discovered Cardcaptor Sakura followed by Fushigi Yugi followed by Ayashi no Ceres followed by Boys Over Flowers (Hana Yori Dango) followed by Revolutionary Girl Utena and…you get the idea. Most of the mangas I got into happened to have an anime to go with it or vice versa. I always thought most mangas naturally became animes once it was a hit in Japan, but it isn’t always the case as I eventually learned.
