So I noticed quite a few people just finished/started doing this anime challenge and honestly I’ve been out of the loop lately (trying to catch up). I’m not exactly sure who started doing this but I figured I’d try my hand at it too!
Honestly, this is my second time doing this challenge but the first time I did it, I probably only got to day 4 before I dropped it. At the time I hadn’t been watching too much anime so trying to answer the questions was pretty hard. Since then I’ve watched a lot more stuff so I think I’m up to taking the challenge this time and possibly persevering!
I’d also like to do the manga and yaoi challenges so look out for those once I’m done with this one! (I’m actually more excited about these two hehe)
Day 1: First Anime
Like the majority of people I know, I grew up watching anime without knowing it was anime. As a kid everything was cartoons to me until I watched Inuyasha so I’ll dub that as my first anime. I probably started watching it when I was in 4th/5th grade and I only know this because I did a project on Rumiko Takahashi for Women’s History Month. Yeah, a lot of people advise you not to show your weeb but apparently I never received the memo LOL
I don’t actually remember what pulled me in about the show but it always made laugh and I thought it was cool that this normal girl was somehow transported back in time to fight evil demons and all that jazz. Not to mention that Inuyasha had dog ears!! He was my first anime crush :” )
Before Inuyasha I also watched your typical 90s kids anime like Tokyo Mew Mew, Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, Digimon, Pokemon, Dragon Ball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh, Naruto, etc. And by watching Inuyasha on adult swim I was also introduced to shows like Evangelion, Samurai Champloo, Case Closed, Bleach, Cowboy Bebop, Gundam, Paranoia Agent, and a lot of your older/classic anime.
Unfortunately, my memory has never been all that good so I’ve pretty much forgotten all of what happened in some of these anime (which I suppose can also be a good thing because I can rewatch these shows and re-experience those feelings I had before haha)
