anime!

For 16 years (since seeing Ninja Scroll at 10 years old lolrapescene) I had tried watching anime a bunch of times in the past and never really liked any of it. Studio Gibli stuff was OK, but was basically just Disney – popular shonen stuff like naruto, trigun, fullmetal alchemist, etc. seemed too childish – too similar to regular old american boy’s TV shows already out there. I watched other animes like Ninja Scroll, Akira, and Cowboy Beebop, but I found them distastefully gory and ugly. I thought that anime just wasn’t for me – and I didn’t ‘get’ other’s fascination with it.

 Then one day I turned on a random anime on Netflix by chance, just out of curiosity…and discovered the ecchi fantasy anime Rosario + Vampire. It was the lightehearted fun and kawaii of Studio Gibli, the excitement and imagination of shonen pulp, and the fanservice/adult themes of explicit animes I had seen (without being explicit itself). I had no idea such stuff existed!! So now I am totally hooked and love anime and manga!
