When I was first introduced to Anime in my thirties, I thought it wasn’t for me. My daughter went to the Anime North Convention and when I dropped her off, I enjoyed looking at everyone that was so into Anime that they dressed up as his or her favorite characters.
One day my daughter and I were discussing the shows I used to watch when I was younger and I found that Cyber 6, one of my favorite shows, was in the category of Anime.
With more investigation into Anime, I realized I enjoyed the DVD Deathnote – Vol 1 and Vol 2. The storyline and the animation was amazing. The story was so intricate and the dialogue was interesting and intelligent, it pulled me in and kept me glued to my seat. I enjoyed the main characters, Kira, L and Near and I realized that I had to give Anime a little more of a chance as a genre.
I don’t think I would be a fan of Anime North but I have come to appreciate the art and the creative work that goes into that genre.
