As part of the 30 Day Anime Challenge, this answers Day 1 answering which anime was originally my first anime (s). To start with, as far as I can remember, I think that anime has been quite a large part of my childhood, even if it’s not been specifically anime, cartoon in general have been something that as a kid I’ve always watched.
From a very young age, I’ve always found anime/cartoons to be really entertaining. From the Saturday mornings watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to watching Arthur after primary and secondary school, it’s the one thing that I could do to just sit down and relax, at that point, I didn’t really get into anime until I landed upon a specific channel, Jetix.
Jetix had a number of great shows such as Sonic and Inspector Gadget. One of which was Naruto, I can still remember when I was first attracted to the show when the battle between Naruto and Gaara ended in such an awesome scene that I was just enticed that I had never seen anything like that.
I can also remember some memories from a while ago when I was a lot younger I saw an episode of One Piece during the Arlong Arc. So to put it all into one basket, I really think that the first major anime that I was first randomly introduced to were Naruto and One Piece. Although I’ve not been caught up with One Piece, I can say with Naruto that it was truly my first anime where I went online and watched all the episodes available.
So on top of what I’ve said about my discovery into the world of anime, how were you initially introduced to the wonderful world of anime? Go ahead and using the comment section below, let’s talk about which anime was your first.
