2. Favorite Anime You watched so Far
Welcome back Blerders and Nerders! This is officially Day 2 of our 25 days of Anime. I tried to give myself some space between the my late post of Day 1 so I won’t be doing TOO much.
Today’s subject is a bit hard for me. There have been so many anime series that I can call a “favorite”. Cowboy Bebop, Trigun and Gundam Wing are my absolute favorite anime series of all time but I don’t want to include one of those here. Instead, I will do one that became a favorite a few years back.
I came across Code Geass in 2012 when I was scrolling through my newly acquired Crunchyroll account. I was excited to look for fresh anime to watch in my free time. I didn’t know what I really wanted to watch so I added random series to my list and started watching. I started watching the first episode and for it to be a 6 year old anime, the animation was great. I was immediately drawn into the conflict of Eleven’s(Japanese) and the British Empire. What I enjoyed the most was the fact that the main character was essentially an anti-hero.
For me, Code Geass is the perfect mix of mecha and political dystopia anime. It has intrigue, great mech fights, political commentary, and fun scenes with supporting characters. It has a lot of character growth and conflict which are two things I LOVE in anime and to see it animated is great. Back to the main character, what makes him so intriguing to me is the fact that sometimes you can’t tell if he was justified in his actions or just blinded by his personal vendetta. I enjoy the fact that the lines of good and bad are blurred with this character while watching the others have a clear side.
