Today’s topic: May I tell you something about myself?

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:

Ninja Scroll
Sword of the Stranger
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
Tenchi Muyo in Love
Princess Mononoke
Ghost in the Shell
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
Legend of Crystania
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
Fatal Fury

Top ten anime series:

Record of Lodoss War
Fullmetal Alchemist
Cowboy Bebop
Bastard (OVA)
Samurai Champloo
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!

  1. 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.
