How did I get into anime?
Posted On August 5, 2021
I started watching anime when I was 13.
At that point, I didn’t have a sense of what anime was, and I had no idea how to read it.
But I’d grown up on anime and had a good taste, so I went to my local cinema every weekend and saw all the new shows, whether it was something like Cowboy Bebop or Cowboy Bebenecar.
When I went back to school, I had a friend who was into anime and he was a huge fan of Sailor Moon, and he’d also become friends with my sister who was a manga collector.
So, I decided to become a manga reader.
I remember reading all of the Sailor Moon manga when I got my first credit card in high school.
My first exposure to anime was when I started seeing a lot of anime on the internet, but when I went out with my friends, I never got to meet the people I really wanted to meet.
So I never really started reading it.
I’d get on the train and it would be a series of episodes and I’d be like, “Why are there so many Sailor Moon episodes?”
I don’t remember much of it.
So that was my introduction to anime.
I guess it’s kind of like a first impression, but I started to learn a lot about it, so now I’m really into it.
It’s interesting to go through different kinds of anime, but the ones I’ve been really enjoying are ones that I really want to see more of.
I think the most interesting ones are the ones that really have a lot more in common with the original works than they do with the contemporary works.
There are also some really good shows, too, like Fullmetal Alchemist and Ghost in the Shell, and they’re very well-crafted and very enjoyable.
How did you get into manga?
I was always a huge Sailor Moon fan, so when I saw Sailor Moon being produced, I immediately wanted to see it.
My family used to watch Sailor Moon when I grew up, and then I grew older and grew a bit older and so my family would say, “Oh, your sister’s been reading the manga for so long, she’s actually really into the show now!”
So I thought, “Wow, this is really interesting.”
I started going to anime conventions at 16 or 17, and when I came to college I decided that it was time to start watching anime, and by the time I graduated I was hooked.
I still love watching anime and reading manga, but now I’ve become more into it because I know I can make my own manga.
So it’s really a case of being interested in different things and wanting to do something different.
What is your favourite anime?
It depends on what I’m watching.
There’s always something new, so if I’m just really into Sailor Moon and the Sailor Senshi franchise, I’ll probably be into Sailor Mars.
I’m into the Sailor Galaxy, so that’s kind and beautiful.
The characters I like the most are the protagonists and the supporting characters, and if you look at some of the characters, like Sailor Mars, they’re pretty cool too.
I like Sailor Moon for its unique way of storytelling, its characters and the way it’s made for girls and young girls to love.
I also love Sailor Moon because it’s very well written, which is what I really like about it.
How do you go about choosing anime?
I really enjoy watching anime with friends.
If I’m at home watching anime alone, I’m actually really sad about it because there’s so much anime out there, and it’s all the same people talking to each other about it and trying to make their own way of watching it.
With my friends we usually do it with each other.
We usually go to the cinema and watch different anime, too.
So we tend to pick shows we think will appeal to each of us, like Samurai Champloo, Ghost in The Shell, or Fullmetal Alias.
But if we’re at home, we usually just pick the shows that we enjoy.
What are some of your favourite manga?
The first time I read Sailor Moon was when it was a special edition and I was reading it at the time, so there were all these special editions and I thought I had to pick up this one, because it had Sailor Mars in it.
And I bought it because it was one of the first Sailor Moon volumes, but at that time it wasn’t a series.
When the anime series came out, I was like, Oh my god, I’ve got to get this one.
I love it, and that was the first time that I bought a Sailor Moon volume, so it’s been an obsession ever since.
What manga do you read?
My favourite manga is The Princess Bride by Suzanne Collins.
She’s a very beautiful author, and she’s also an anime writer, so she’s one of my favourites.
There have been so many of her works, but her most recent
