I haven't a clue about my frist anime cartoon (most probably Pokemon, though), but I can remember that the first anime film I watched was Akira. I've since watched Spirited Away, and last Friday I watched Princess Mononoke. Methinks I ought to find the other films the guy who made those two has done, as I really enjoyed the two I've seen.
What's Howl's Moving Castle like?
Rumpity Dumpity Bump-bump.
If Pokemon is counted as an anime series, then that was my first taste, but I haven't seen the whole thing (as a corridor we ordered the first series of the Indigo League, so I'm slowly making my through the first 30 episodes from the start).
The first full anime series I've seen took me all of Monday, and it rocked my socks! Cowboy Bebop
!! Utterly fantastic. The characters are interesting, the plots are quite nice, the underlying story is good, the ending is satisfactory (even if sad), and though you're not shown too much of it the series Universe is brilliant.
Oh, and Ed.
It's only been a couple of days, but I'm really missing Ed.
Other than that, I've seen all the Miyazaki Studio Ghibli films (Nausicaa
had to be by far my favourite), Akira
, and the Cowboy Bebop film.
