My History with Anime

February 22, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Announcements, Other Stuff, Personal

I would like to propose a project. If you are reading this, there is a 99% chance that you watch anime, and I know that many of you have your own blogs. Since we all enjoy the same thing, I thought it would be nice for everyone to share their history regarding when/how they discovered anime, how it has become a part of their lives, and how they think it has changed since then. It can be as detailed or as short as you want, and it can be about anything anime-related such as: your favourite series, why you watch anime, difficulties in getting anime, collecting anime goodies, anime conventions, cosplaying, and drawing.

If you have a blog, simply write about your history with anime and send me the link. I will add your link to the list below and a new project page I created with links to everyone participating. If you have a banner you would like displayed, send that in too. In return, I simply ask for you to spread the word and link back to this post. If you don’t have a blog and would like to participate, worry not. Simply email me with your screen name and history, and I will create a page for you. I will also add links to any profile pages you may have (ie: Twitter, Youtube, MyAnimeList, MyFigureCollection). I look forward to reading everyone’s posts.

Nopy’s History With Anime:

If you’re a regular visitor to my blog, you’ll know that I love anime, but what got me started with this addiction? Like many anime fans my age in North America, my first encounter with anime was the original Dragon Ball series which aired for a short while in the mid 90’s before being cancelled due to poor ratings. Shortly after, Sailor Moon hit the airwaves and took the cartoon world by storm. I remember seeing newspaper articles describing the Sailor Moon phenomenon and finding Sailor Moon merchandise in every asian and toy store in the city. I was also swept along with the Sailor Moon craze. That cartoon (I didn’t know what anime was at the time) had everything: pretty characters, neat powers (at least to a kid), plenty of action, a bit of controversy, and a good story. In fact, I liked Sailor Moon so much that I spent whatever loose change I could find on the ground on Sailor Moon stickers, cards, temporary tattoos, and posters (loose change bought you a lot back then).
