I’m so happy right now. The weekend is coming soon which means I finally get a break from studies and now I can discuss my favorite topic “Anime”(although I’ve been discussing about it everyday). So how I started loving anime, this is going to be a long story or rather a short one and for some reason wordpress is really slow right now.
Ok so how many of you remember Animax. For people who don’t know, Animax is a Japanese anime satellite television network, dedicated to broadcasting anime programming. The channel also dubbed cartoons in Japanese language.
What does Animax have to do with me loving anime?
Good question. I think it was 2015 when animax was released in India. It was november when I had go out to a for dinner and just before minutes leaving I switched on the TV to make sure my movie was getting recorded when I accidentely pressed the wrong number which led me to Animax and the first anime that was running was Naruto.
I know, there is no more accidental way than mine to discover an anime. Anyway from that day I started watching anime, I watched almost more than 70 anime on animax. From Naruto to www. working. It was a great experience for me as I’ve never seen an anime before.
My anime friend
I was happy that I was watching anime but I also felt sad that I couldn’t share it with anyone. I definetely did not think of blogging then, so I kinda kept anime to myself. Until one fateful day(not romantic kinda view), we 5th graders were supposed to sit with the 8th graders during free period.
I had two 8th graders sitting besides me, while I was in my own world thinking about anime I had somebody say something about anime. It was one of the 8th graders talking to his friends and from nowhere I had the courage to ask him if he watches anime, now for the twist, he said “no” and immediately I thought that my mind was playing tricks with me but before I had the chance to say sorry he said “the one who watches anime is that guy”. It was his friend who was sitting next to him, so this time I leaned back and called him.
Me: “psst, do you watch anime”
Him: ‘Yeah, so what”
Me: “Then do you know nisekoi”
Then we started talking about anime and other stuff. I guess he was the first person I ever talked to about anime. Well after that we were friends(I considered) for two more years when he left the school after finishing his 10th and now I don’t know where he is or what he does, well anyway I’m happy that I met a friend like him.
So what does a friend have to do with me loving anime. Well he knew a lot of anime and after a bit of time he started talking about anime I’ve never even heard of, of course that made me wanna know even more than him and in that same somewhat competetive spirit I started loving anime.
I indulged myself in watching anime and from that day on till he left the school was the most memorable moment of my life. Although I’m enjoying myself here with all you guys and now I have more than 200 friends, so I think I’m living my life right now. You know if I could have clubs at India then I would’ve definetely created a anime club.
Every now and then I think “Ahhh I should’ve gotten his number” but sometimes I think we’ll meet again, so if we do meet I’ll definetely be looking forward to it. The most surprising thing that would happen right now is that if he read this post lol.
Thank you for reading.
