A post on the stuff that occupies almost 99% of my brain.
I’ve always been referred to and referred myself as one. Being an Otaku has become a natural process for me. Which basically means that Anime/Manga is an integral part of my life.
Now this event has made me go back the timeline, to ancient histories on how, where and when I started my epic journey.
Join me as I go back down my memory lane.
How did I start watching Anime?
It was a perfectly normal day. Sun was shining brightly and birds were chirping. Little Beth was running around the house causing chaos and destruction to the just cleaned house. Her mother was finally fed up of her antics and decided to switch on the T.V.
Little Beth stared at the screen as various channels went past. Suddenly she was enthralled by a Saiyan (she didn’t know he was a Saiyan/SS then though).
Thus, Dragon Ball Z opened her portals to anime.
Can you tell me how many anime you have seen or manga you have read?’
I’m more of a manga person than anime person because, my parents are against anime, so I stick with reading since early days itself. Other reason is that manga can be read from anywhere I guess.
You don’t need earphones for reading manga during a boring college lecture. *shrugs*
Hence the no. of anime I’ve watched is really low, some 50-60 anime only. On the other hand, I’ve read 300+ manga.
My favourite anime are Zankyou no Terror and Akatsuki no Yona while my favourite manga are Liar Game and Akatsuki no Yona.
Yes. I LOVE AKATSUKI NO YONA.
The funny fact is that I skipped mainstream as a whole, which is a bummer because everyone’s all over mainstream stuff.
Why did I skip mainstream? Because I wanted to explore from the insides to discover the true essence of manga’s.
Now I’m finally getting back to mainstream. Which means suggest me what mainstream manga/anime I should read/watch first…okay??
It would be a great help!!!
What was your first anime/manga?
As I already recounted DBZ was the portal.
Although this is my memory of what actually happened, I don’t remember DBZ and Pokemon in high detail meaning I need to re-watch those series.
So hence I’d say Zatchbell is the oldest anime that I have watched which I remember stuff about.
It’s kinda disappointing that I’ve watched Naruto, DBZ and Pokemon way back and now I can’t remember it. Which actually sucks.
But Zatchbell is my first manga. I read it when I was in Grade 5. Maybe that’s why I remember the details.
Hmm…. makes sense.
But whatever the case my starter anime would be DBZ, Pokemon, Naruto, Crayon Shinchan, Doraemon and Zatchbell.
Mind you these are the original early ones before they got corrupted.
Compare your anime love with anime stuff

Do you have any anime merchandise?
I have no figurines sadly. What I do have are
An ornamental hairpin/hashi stick
Ft hoodie (this is too small for me to wear now)
Posters of Zatchbell, DBZ and FT.
Nothing much actually.
State a few Otaku things you do?
After reading this one, none of you are allowed to mention this to me cause some of them are too embarrassing.
1 Saying Itadakimasu before every meal.
2 Saying ‘Aye Sir!’ instead of yes or yeah in daily conversations
3 I have this little voice in my head that says Baka in Usui’s voice and Daijoubou in Tenya’s voice whenever I’m in a tough situation. It creeps me out. Supposedly a side effect of too many anime.
4 Randomly speaking Japanese words and smiling at the weird stares given by other people.
5 An undeniable and unquenchable desire to go to Japan.
6 Fangirling with anyone who listens.
7 Shying away from all parties just to read manga.
8 Comparing actual people to anime characters.
9 Randomly transforming into Nyanmaru and saying nyan nyan~
10 Having more Kpop and Jpop in playlist than other languages
11 Having a glasses fetish (the levels of this fetish are skyrocketing)
12 And plus all other fangirl stuff common to every otaku like getting mad when people say anime are cartoon and stuff
On a scale of 1-10 rate your love for anime.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
WHAT SELF RESPECTFUL OTAKU WILL DO THAT?
BECAUSE LET’S BE REAL, 10 AIN’T NO SCALE TO RATE THIS AMAZING PHENOMENON.
I love it more than anything else in this world.
I love anime as much as I like Food.
Now, there that’s a more realistic comparison.
Yeah well, that would be my compilation for Otaku Forever. YESH I WILL BE AN OTAKU FOREVER!
Plus Otaku’s are some of the best friends you can ever make. *secretly points towards AnimeSama*
My rl friend always complains that I spent too much time with you people.
SO, WHAT DID I DO?
I BROUGHT HER HERE!
*PROUD PROUD PROUD*
YESH Bethy is smart~ hehehe
Thank you for reading
