Day One wants to know what is the very first anime you watched. To the best of my knowledge, that would be none other than the ultra-cheeseball classic, Speed Racer!
It was so great and terrible and wonderful and parody-able and had one of the greatest theme songs ever made… Buuuut, I also didn’t know that was anime at the time. The first anime I really recall knowing was anime would be G-Force. Apparently it was pretty terrible, and not so much in the good Speed Racer way, but I was super into it when I was 9-10 years old.
Both have seen multiple revivals in various mediums over the years (G-Force was sort of one itself), some better than others, but for good or for ill, these incarnations of two venerable classics are where my anime roots lie.
Thanks for stopping by!
See you space cowboy…
