(In response to Shay’s Latest Video)
When I was growing up I loved Greek and Medieval history and culture. Frankly I never looked towards other cultures with much interest. I loved Greek culture so much that I swore I would always enjoy it. I wanted to travel to Greece and take in all the culture and food, but life always has new plans. It was seventh grade and we had just wrapped up with the Medieval section of world history and we jumped right into the Asian history section. Japan was a country from which I got Godzilla and Pokemon from. I never gave Japan a moment of my time simply because I was infatuated with Greek and Medieval history.
Low and Behold I discovered something precious and beautiful. A little movie that my teacher loved would become to beckoning beacon that would spark an obsessions. Spirited Away the surreal masterpiece by Hayao Miyazaki is just utterly beautiful. I remember being so fondly inspired, so excited to finish the film in our next class. It was stunning and it opened my eyes to what cartoons where and what anime was. After my class I rushed home and begged my mother to take me out to find this movie. Well a few car rides and a town hop later we found it.
This copy is old, it is a DVD and yet I could care less. It is and always will be the first anime movie that I ever watched. It has a place in my life where no other object has a spot. It truly is something phenomenal and it is an item I cannot bear to ever be apart from. It lead for a growing interest in further titles, towards further series and towards the inevitable OGZ. Frankly the day that I watched an anime was the day I opened a door. It isn’t a special door, nor is it a fancy one. It is my own door that lead me into a world that I would frankly not ever trade for anything. It was the moment I decided to get into this strange, new culture and I couldn’t have been more happy.
The day I watched anime is a day I will always remember and will always cherish. So what is your first anime or anime movie? Surely there is that one gem of yours that will always leave you smiling.
