How Anime modified Western Society

Anime News

Hahaha Hey you losers, is it alreadycarnival again? Hahaha! Hand over your cell phones, come on! Eh- Leave us alone! Or what? DUDE, ARE YOU NUTS?!YOU MUST BE OUT OF YOUR MIND? I’LL SMACK YOUR FACES, YOU STUPID GEEKS! What the hell is this?.

With the power of friendship!!! Yay!!! I was a typical anime kid. Because typical anime kids roastStrangers with flamethrowers, as you know. No, but anime kids sticktogether. Because especially my generation – the saturday morning kids – have ashared experience! And thereby also somehowthe same values. And the same knowledge, like thatfor a murder you need some ice in.

Some form and/or a fishing line. Legit the resolution of 70% of all Conan cases. Anyway, I was wondering how these anime made me the way Iam today? the way I am today? Every day after school it wasnothing but: Come on Mila, if you can't standthose medicine balls, you will never be a volleyball pro! But coach, both myarms are already broken!.

For crying 3 at once! Fire!! Ahh!! My first hardcore obsession wasobviously Pokémon – RED Edition. My brother had blue, but let'sbe honest team blue, just had not enough FIRE! Ehm yes… Okay. – Yes, let's be real. If there had been green, I would have chosen that, because BisaBae is just the coolesttoad of all!.

Turtle… or frog? Or dino? WHAT THEHELL ARE YOU? My dad had even bought us the Pokemon CD, but because but because it was onlyavailable in English, I can now dothe PokéRap in both languages. in both languages. Charmeleon, WartortleMewtwo, Tentacruel, Aerodactyl But on August 14, 2000, on mybirthday the first.

Episode ofDigimon aired on TV! I was looking forward to this day, and before the there was a lot of talk about it in N-Zone other anime magazines about it with fake news and mistranslations Uhh… that looks… neat. And Gabumon's attack is – Blue Blaster? And he smells when he is wet? Yeah, who can't remember thesegreat scenes. Hey, you dirty dirty brat. Maybe it's your coat that smells so bad?.

How mean, I'll wash already. But the further the series went,the more I realized: This anime is everything!!! Digimon is about 7 children (cough) Eight! …who are pulled into a digital world full ofmonsters. The DigiWorld is basically like a digital image of our world, which arose by networking all computers.

That alone was already arevolutionary premise in the 90s/2000s, when the internetwas completely new. Unlike Pokémon… … monsters are notlocked up and forced to fight because the trainer wants toearn the eight badges. The Digimon meet their partners oneye-to-eye-level as friends. Also they can speak to express their character. When they fight, they fight togetherand for each other as a team, because they.

Need to save the world or protect weaker ones. I think, Digimon's view on human relationship with animals is very based! Better than some other series. HA! Each DigiDestined has an emblem, which has a value or trait that the character stands for Courage, friendship, hope- Or light.

My favorite trait. Boy, do I feel light-y today. Yeah well, Kari was always a little bitdifferent. But that's how I learned as a childthat you don't have to solely focus on8700:03:43,780 –> 00:03:47,640…courage, but love,sincerity or knowledge are also valid and heroic. Also, Digimon was the firstanime for me that had a complex story over several story arcs – with continuous characters thatevolve – even over the.

First season. And it also did'nt shy away 9400:04:02,069 –> 00:04:03,220from adult themes. Dayum! Izzy happened to hear that he waswas adopted?! Dayum! Ken's brother is dead and died as a child? Dayum! Friends-to-Lovers will be myKink for life, man! And until today “Live yourDream” is my motto, because without it.

I could have not produced TubeClash at the time. It inspired me, I started drawing again and dreaming. Anime in general often convey valueslike friendship and 10500:04:24,664 –> 00:04:25,664standing up for each other. In addition, themanga scene is closely related to the LGBTQ+ scene. Where else can you findsuch a wide range of queerstories. Gay thrillers, romance, music mangas – you name it! If I had not discovered this as a little kid, I would have.

Thought for a long time that I am somehowwrong. Because if you don't see yourself represented anywhere, you get the feeling that you don't belonghere. In the anime scene i never get that feeling , apart from some toxic bubbles of course Among anime fans I feelcomfortable, because we have a high probability, that we share a bunch ofmoral values. The other day I was hosting a radio show with my boyfriend on the subject and it was just wholesome.

We got a lot of input on the question,what my german community 12200:05:08,650 –> 00:05:09,759learned from anime & manga: That gender is very fluid That sometimes the journey is more importantthan the destination That you don't always have to do everything alone I have learned patience: Only 1 new manga every 3months?! In the past we anime fans were theoutsiders. Nerds, geeks. But today manga & anime arrived in the mainstream: There are so many music references,Netflix, Amazon and Disney buy.

And Crunchyroll is a streaming provider that even specializes on anime! And now that we, the firstgeneration of saturday afternoon kids, have grown up and have earned a seriouspurchasing power in our capitalist system, BUY ALL THE MERCH we make sure that ourchildhood heroes can live on – like in the best Digimon movie of all time:Digimon Last Evolution Kizuna. Or in the worstDigimon movies of all time,.

DigimonTri 1-6! Don't remind me of those. How is it with you guys? What is your favorite anime? Maybe we can make a list of thebest anime in the comments together! Until then… Chiiuuaa!!!

Sharing is caring!
