I posted on Twitter that I would be doing this. I wasn’t challenged by anybody, but I had seen that other people have done this, and I wanted to try too! So, for the month of December, you’ll hopefully see one of these posts every day. And I’ll try to get a Friday post out too like normal, but we’ll play it by ear and see how this goes.
So, for today’s prompt!
First Anime You Watched
In technicality, it was D Gray Man. But I’ve only seen maybe five episodes of that. It was when I was at my friend’s house over the summer between sixth and seventh grade, and her brother had it on the TV, and we just happened to end up watching it. I can’t even tell you what happened in first episode we watched, but the second one I think had something to do with a nurse. I’m not sure.
We ended up watching the first few episodes after that, but I barely touched the show once that day was over. And I’ve never had any desire to watch it fully.
What I actually consider to be my first anime was Ouran High School Host Club, since it’s the first one I ever finished. I’d seen bits of a few other shows before I finished it: Fruits Basket, Sword Art Online, Fairy Tail, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Soul Eater. But I really consider it to be my first.
And I still love it to this day. Like, way too much. I have episode ten pretty much memorized at this point, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ve seen it fifteen times. This was mostly when I didn’t have a large amount of anime I’d be watching at one time, so now my rewatching is to a minimum. Mainly just with my brothers or like when Yuri on Ice had its one year anniversary I rewatched that.
Anyway, OHSHC is my go-to show when I’m down. Or I’ll reread one of the mangas even.
It was my first anime cosplay, my first piece of anime merchandise, the first manga series I ever collected, along with I believe the first anime I owned on DVD. It’s a lot of firsts. So, that’s my real answer for today’s prompt.
And, as a little sneak-peak, I’m going to be focusing on this show for my OWLS blog tour post this month, so look out for that!
There was day one, hopefully I can keep this up. Wish me luck!
