When I were a lad, this was all fields as far as the eye could see, and they used to show anime on TV. That's how I got into anime, stubling across Channel 4's Late License and watching shows like Legend of the 4 Kings, and Cyber City Oedo 808, as well as catching movies like Akira and Wings of Honneamise on BBC2. It was that which got me wandering down to my local video emporium and looking for more. But other than Ghibli, anime isn't on TV anymore. It may be streamed to high heaven online, but finding that is a proactive experience, just as visiting the video shop was for me. You have to know that it exists before you go looking for it. So how do new fans get into the medium? What draws them in? How do they discover anime?
