Your FIRST Anime~! - 07-16-2011, 07:08 PM
Good Morning Anime fans~!
I'd like to start something, if not, interesting for this site. Some of you may think this is a game but it's actually a spot to share your thoughts about our favorite entertainment. Here's what I mean ....
When people heard the word 'anime' the first thought that went thru their minds was Pokemon or Dragon Ball Z which were at the time Japanese cartoons for kids. Anyone who knows someone watching anime, without mentioning the title, ends up calling them retards, childish adults, or weirdos and thus created a stereotype where society looks down on them. That's ignorance at its best (sarcastically) - at its worst - level; people perceive things their own way, tend to make wrong assumptions, and they never take the time to think about what led us [members of AT] to enjoy it.
Simply I like anime because ... it's just interesting. The stories, the animation, the themes, the characters, and the impression it has onto me.
Gundam Wing was the very first anime I have ever watched in my entire life and my interest into it began nine years ago. Before seeing it I was into tanks, jets, and other war machines such as MechWarrior until I heard an animated equivalent of it and I was speechless. Things that I like since watching Gundam animes: The technical specs, the pilots, beam weapons and energies, vehicles and colonies, explorations of space, the possibilities of advancing far beyond the current era, and the consequences of human nature. Watching Gundam 00 recently brings me back to Gundam Wing these days. I have watched mecha related anime titles as well in the past:
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Full Metal Panic!
Gundam 8th MS Team
Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory
Gundam: Char's Counterattack
Gundam Seed Destiny
The Vision of Escaflowne
Martian Successor Nadesico
Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure
and more ...
OK, now it's your turn:
- What's the very FIRST anime you have ever watched in your life?
What is it that you like the most from it (either your first anime or your favorite)?
P.S. Sorry for the long post
