Day 1 - First Anime Ever Watched?
Hello, Vingle-world. I enjoy this site and reading what you all have to say - but I've never written anything on my one. But thanks to biancadanica98 , I've felt encouraged to share my thoughts on this fun little anime challenge.
I urge you to join in, too, if you are seeing this challenge for the first time!
So. Let's begin.
Unlike many of my peers, my anime obsession didn't begin at a young age with Pokemon, Naruto, or any other of those 90's original children's anime. My mother was very strict about what I watched on television, so every show I saw was extremely monitored. I think my mother falls into the type that thinks all anime is like an ecchi because she always told me that "that type of animation is of the devil". Sad, huh? I can't believe all of the animated adventures I was missing out on. Anyways, not the point.
During the summer after my last year in high school, I turned on Netflix and decided to try something new. I was getting tired of watching the same stuff over and over (mostly Disney movies) and, as a huge animation fanatic, I wasn't interested in trying any of the "popular" shows (such as OITNB, Bones, etc.). My step- brother, an anime fanatic since childhood, has always tried to get me interested in this new style of animation. Even though I LOVE animation, I always preferred the type of hand-drawn cartoon-style animation - such as the art that is seen in Disney's original films. Anyways, I finally caved in. When I was home alone with no one else around, I stumbled across this title, "Yamada's First Time" (aka B Gata H Kei).
