Twitch is running a marathon of all 19 seasons of the Pokemon anime, including the movies, and it’s going to run well into 2019. While Rachel and I enjoy the Pokemon anime, especially the earlier seasons, we never really watched too much anime in our lives. We recently watched and enjoyed the Ace Attorney series, and we used to watch Sonic X more for nostalgia for the older cartoon rather than actually liking it, anime was never really our thing.
Yes, we really only cared for the Pokemon anime because it’s… well, it’s Pokemon. However, we have seen a couple of other anime shows in our lifetime, while we didn’t watch anything other people watch. Fruits Basket being one of them.
Fruits Basket wasn’t too bad at all, although I remember more of the manga from borrowing it from an old high school friend than I do the anime. Every once in a while on Saturday mornings I’d catch an episode of Cardcaptor Sakura too. That wasn’t a bad show at all, if I remember correctly.
We borrowed the DVDs from your friend too, I think. I remember watching it in the basement with you. I never read the manga, though I plan to… eventually. I’ve never seen Cardcaptor Sakura, though I do remember you mentioning it to me one time.
It wasn’t too bad at all, and I would like to try to revisit it, see what became of the show. I’m sure you want to watch more of the Fruits Basket anime, too. Yu-Gi-Oh doesn’t seem too bad either, but all I’ve really seen of that show was the original theme song. There are so many other anime out there… We should definitely try to find more that we’d be interested in, see if there’s any others we’d like to watch.
Oh, the trading cards… We should probably figure out how to play all those card games, especially with all your Pokemon cards! Sword Art Online is another anime that I’d be interested in seeing. It’s based in a virtual MMORPG and players cannot log out of their avatars until they defeat the final boss. Apparently the anime is set in 2022 which isn’t too far from now!
That’s sounds really cool! Though totally creepy because of how close it is… it’s funny how shows are set to the “future” and it’s like, well. Here we are. But that definitely sounds like a good one too.
