My History With AnimeMarch 7, 2011 at 6:53 am | Posted in Miscellaneous | 30 Comments
as response of Nopy’s project . this isn’t Anime blog and I am not otaku after all , but I did blog about them 3-4 years ago when still regularly watching them,at least once they become part of my life since I don’t really have social life even now and of course they influencing toys and Figures collection.
I am 19 anyway so I can write this while remembering most of them lol
all fictions that fill my childhood and now are Manga,Tokusatsu,Anime,Roald Dahl’s Children Novel and John woo’s action movies(HK version) +
my mom always made me accompany her while watching korean or japannese drama.
For first Anime maybe a bit different from the other but somehow 80s anime filling more since local TV love to repeat classic one from 80s series the 5 that I can clearly remember was saint saiya,creamy mami,macross,Doraemon and a “magical” girl that able to transform into adult with any profession she want like doctor,detective,spy,etc (forgot the name >_<) these are the one when I was like 5-7 years old, here are some more that i barely remember but somehow Girlish anime took my interest more.
then the trend change and 90s anime take over like Dragon ball Z,Patlabor,Samurai X,Sailormoon,Cardcaptor sakura,Gundam wing,evangelion,Pokemon,Digimon,captain tsubasa( during 2002 world cup this really take over ) and mostly anime that focus on it’s merchandise like trading card game,Mini4WD,Crush Gear,Beyblade thingy.
I like Cowboy Bebop the most from 90s era 😀 but I watch them for the first time in 2003 hahaha
once I can read properly ,I grown to love manga a lot even more than anime, since I feel that most anime adaptation are sucks and somehow like to read more weird for modern teens eh ?. My mom and sister really give influences about reading not just manga of course,but this post should be about Anime hihihi let’s make it short I like gore theme manga,doesn’t really like sport genre prefer real sports, read any kind of manga shoujo,shonen,seinen doesn’t matter,my favorite art style will be CLAMP,and Yu-Aida, for modern shoujo manga only Ai Yazawa’s NANA really good for me the Anime and Live-action film also great.
So yeah maybe family influences have something to do with. same with My dad and bro that make me interested in action movies and sport-racing(especially Formula1 and MotoGP).
Basically In contrast of Toksuatsu, and Action movies, I love Girlish Anime especially magical girl genre but I slowly grown sick with them.
For “modern” era my main love are these : other than mecha genre(mainly gundam )since I like their merchandise more from model kit,gashapon to the action figures,somehow I watch the anime just to see new Mobile suit/robot and waiting for it’s Toys to be released 😯
* modern = above year of 2000
guess what ? click the image if you gave up 😉
these deadly ladies ^^ maybe action movies have something to do with this and how I love Firearms so much.
and Rozen Maiden still don’t know why i like this ?
for the last 2 Gunslinger Girl and Rozen Maiden I grow to like the manga more, the anime kinda lame for me 😦 especially when I re-watch them.
there are also bunch of other anime from A to Z (from Azumanga daioh to Zombie Loan ) but really these 3 are special for me.
but yeah those are the past I think the last anime series that I truly enjoy to watch are Jigoku Shōjo,Lucky Star ,Code Geass, and kara No Kyoukai, rebuild of evangelion looks good but I don’t really have feeling for it, after that none really took my interest 😦 Just fan-service overload,cute/moe, they might good but too often being used make me bored , and Gundam also boring…..but of course this just me 😉
