Day 1: Very First Anime You Watched
Hello Blerders and Nerders! I told you Day 1 would be late so I apologize! When you drive 10 hours, unpack a Uhaul for 3 hours and then still try to catch up on sleep, things become late lol. Anyway, lets get on with this day!
The very first anime I ever watched was the classic Akira. Now I had no clue what was going on when I watched it but the animation of it all had me stuck. I was about 9 or 10 when I first saw this movie so the subject matter was lost to me and I cringed at most of it because of the graphic nature. But when it was a non-violent scene, I stared in awe. I was not supposed to be watching this movie, especially by myself. I believe one of my uncles or cousins was watching it on VHS while I was supposed to be “sleep” (I am a master of fake sleeping). After sneaking and watching Akira, I didn’t see another anime series until I saw Dragonball Z in middle school. The rest is history. What really had me attached to Akira were the visuals. They were amazing! Bright, crisp animation along with detailed character designs. I couldn’t look away from it (except when blood was on screen because, you know…young). I like to thank Akria for starting me down my anime rabbit hole and I will never look back!
