As part of the anime challenge, today I will answering day 14 asking the question of which anime never gets old no matter the number of times you’ve watched it. I watch a bunch of anime, old and new, even catch on those that I’ve missed like One Piece of Steins;Gate, so this question is a little hard because I usually never rewatch anime’s once I’ve seen them once.
So to reiterate, once I watch an anime, I usually never go back to watch them again because usually the first viewing is the one that truly matters, a second or third usually points to things and clues you may notice that you’ll see and know what’ll happen next.
Usually the big anime’s such as Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Fairy Tail, Dragon Ball Z, are amazing that when you watch it once, you’d want to relive the moment when individuals within these Shonen anime’s such as fights or critical moments.
Those are usually what make it or break it for me when it comes to an anime, and it all depends on the first viewing that I may have. Lets start a little with Naruto.
Naruto as an anime is great, it’s full of mystery and an amazing plot which is supplemented by the anime, there are numerous times when I’ve gone back to an old fight and watch it through and just remembered the very first time I saw it.
This usually happened to me during the Naruto vs Gaara when Naruto tried to help both Sasuke and Sakura who were having their own trouble. This in turn led Gaara to re-evaluate himself into someone who isn’t a monster but in fact a friend and someone others can care about.
This can highly relate to Bleach too, the fact that I kept on revisiting olds fights such as Zaraki vs Ichigo, the very first time, and also the Grimmjow battles as well as those including Ulquiorra were key for me, they were amazing, and re-watching those scenes were awesome.
In regards to Fairy Tail, I don’t think there are many fights I could go back and watch. With DBZ, the whole anime is basically one big fight, and with that in check I think revisiting some key battles such as Frieza, is amazingly doable, however they do last quite a while so it’s worth getting some popcorn, Doritos and dip, and a drink of course, because usually shit will always go down.
Recently, you may have heard of an anime that has been getting a lot of praise for how strong the main character is, his name is Saitama and the anime I’m obviously talking about is One Punch Man!
This anime rocks, it’s one of those I don’t care anime’s where anything and everything goes. His abilities and powers transcend even that of an alien (Boros). There is literally nothing Saitama cannot do, he is a human god. And the fact that I’m mentioning One Punch Man here and now means that I’m nominating One Punch Man as one of those anime’s where you can watch it endless times and never get tired because every time he shows up, an enemy will get their butts kicked!
So what do you think? Do you agree with me, or do you personally think there are better shows which are valued as those which you can rewatch a million times and you’d never get tired of. Comment below and tell me.
