30 Day Anime Photo Challenge: Day 1

Yes, it's as fucked up as it looks.
Day 1
Your first anime

Instead of my first anime being the obligatory Sailor Moon, DBZ, or Pokemon, my first experience with the wonderful animation from Japan was actually Little Nemo Adventures in Slumberland. Although if it's asking for anime SERIES, it's probably an equally obscure answer...

Suddenly my childhood is making more and more sense.
Of course, this is during my childhood where all cartoons were "OH PRETTY COLORS" so I wasn't really aware that Japan itself was a country, much less producing these cartoons. So I guess in all reality, the first series that was produced where I was actually aware that it was an "anime" was...

yeah my childhood makes so much sense


  1. Haha yeah, a lot of the cartoons I watched when I was younger were americanised Animes =D

    One of the first Animes I intentionally watched was spirited away and loved it

  2. Tenchi Muyo. Definitely amongst the earliest for me.

    When I started seeking out anime specifically, Trigun was the first though. Damn awesome series that was, too.

  3. Samaria pizza cats! "would someone please cue that bird?" Awesome.

  4. love the tenchi pic...prolly cause i have that wall scroll

  5. Watched little nemo as a kid. various Americanized things over the years.

    The first Anime that got me into it big time was Gundam Wing, I didn't have cartoon network so a friend taped midnight run so I could watch it, along with other things like Tenchi Muyo, cowboy bebop, etc.

    After that we started downloading fan subs and watching just about everything that came out.

  6. Samurai Pizza Cats :D

  7. My first anime was Nausicaa of The Valley of the Wind. And it blew me away, although I didn't know it was anime at the time. One thing I do thank my father for was the type of movies he got us watching when I was a kid. I grew up on things like this and Jackie Chan movies.
