Today’s topic: May I tell you something about myself?
I LOVE ANIME!
The first anime I ever saw was back in 11th grade: Fist of the North Star. I remember watching it and thinking, WOOOOWWWWWW. Then the same boy who introduced me to that anime, showed me Ninja Scroll. CLASSIC.
From there, I grabbed any anime I could. At that time, Blockbuster had a tiny anime section. Most of it was so, so, then cartoon network began playing animes like Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist and Naruto–best anime ever. I ordered anime online, watched clips, rented anime from an anime dedicated site and watched, watched, watched.
Here’s a list of my top ten animes, series and movies separated.
Top ten anime movies:
Sword of the Stranger
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
Tenchi Muyo in Love
Ghost in the Shell
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
Legend of Crystania
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
Top ten anime series:
Record of Lodoss War
Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal (OVA)
Are you a fan of anime? If yes, what’s your favorite series/movies? Any I missed?
And now I leave you with an AMV. Enjoy!
I've seen snippets of about half of those series; I say snippets b/c it's more of my husband's thing, but I'm usually nearby writing or reading and occasionally watch. I'm always amused how some of the really serious anime still has spastic side characters – little cats/dogs/kids etc. It's such a strange mix. Some anime has really well crafted stories and has given me a richer understanding of some of the fiction I read. When I read Cassandra Clare's books I think of them as anime characters.
I haven't read her books, yet. But that's interesting that you can consider it animeish. Anime does have a lot of crazy humor. Fullmetal Alchemist made me cry more than once, great storytelling.
Naruto is by far my favorite. You might like inuyasha it's another great show
Bleach and one piece are also great animes
