What moment in anime made you an anime fan? Everyone knows for the most part the first ever anime that they ever watched. As for some people it was Naruto, for others it was Dragonball and/or Sailor Moon, there are even Pokemon and Digimon for people that have seen it and didn’t think it was anime. I was in a majority watching the ramen eater and the fox. But, what I ask for the reader is what was the moment that made you love anime.
That very moment that made you want to watch other series. The moment that made you fall in love with the industry. What was it that made you want to read and buy manga, and not only made you a fan of the show. But, the anime industry itself. I personally pondered what was that moment for me. Thinking about the anime that I watched over the time. There were moments that made me hyped for sure.
For example the moment that Goku first became super saiyan was amazing to watch as a kid. Yugi vs Kaiba rematch was amazing. The moment that made me binge Naruto to current airing. That being the Rock Lee and Gara Fight. Seeing Rock Lee drop those weights for the first time was the definition of hype as a kid. Those moments were all hype and fun, but the first time that I ever took time and researched about the medium of anime and everything else.
It even shaped my taste as near all of my favorite series can somehow lead back to this moment. As I was at the end of episode one of No Game No Life. Seeing that opening for the first time. From the colors to the visuals the episode was amazing. But, it was so captivating that I took the genre as a whole seriously. Looking up what anime was, looking for all series like it. Eventually leading me to the never ending genres of harems and isekai. But, that story is for another day.
