I couldn't put my finger on a single thing that got me into Japanese culture, but some noteworthy I recall would be some early samurai films I watched like 七人の侍 "Seven Samurai". I got exposed to some music and some manga around the same time and my interests bloomed. Then I explored my interests more by taking two years of Japanese in college.
I was at an intermediate level however it has been a few years since my studies so my Kanji has suffered big time. I would consider myself a rusty intermediate I suppose.
I would like to first regain all I have forgotten and then expand my Kanji reading and writing, everything else will naturally flow secondary from that. I also want to help others with their Japanese using what little I do know in the greater scheme of things. I would also like to make some friends that have the same interests in Japanese culture as I do.
