I didn’t feel like giving you a list of books today. So here are my favourite Anime series. I haven’t actually watched any in years. But when I was a kid & a teenager I was much more into them. Lots of them are quite old. There you go, no particular order:
Hellsing & Hellsing Ultimate / 2001 & 2006 –> That’s how I want my animes to look like. I loved the style in both, Hellsing & Hellsing Ultimate. Then you get blood, gore, vampires, vampire hunters, vampires who kill vampires.. Throw in the church, ghouls and lots of guns, there you have it. Could have done without all the Nazi stuff in the Manga & Ultimate but teenie me didn’t mind and found the whole thing very entertaining.
Dragon Ball & Dragon Ball Z / 1986 & 1989 –> I am still a huge Dragon Ball-fan. I read the mangas as well. And yes, I watched GT but let’s not talk about it 😉 Still have to watch DB Super. Want to give it a try.
Tales of Little Women (Ai no Wakakusa Monogatari) / 1987 –> That’s how I got introduced to the story of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.
Ranma 1/2 (Ranma Nibun no Ichi) / 1989 –> So the main character is a boy called Ranma who got cursed and becomes a girl when in touch with cold water. He changes back to a boy when in touch with hot water. He’s also trained in martial arts and a lot of the series focuses on fighting. Ranma tries to find a way to change himself back throughout the series. Lots of fun characters. And also a guy who changes into a Panda ❤
Robin Hood / 1990 –> A teenager Robin Hood!! And I loved the German intro..
Sailor Moon / 1992 –> Was popular when I went to Primary School and was always on TV. I was a little girl and loved it. I even dressed up as Sailor Moon.
Attack No. 1 / 1969 –> in Germany it was called ‘Mila Superstar’. Awesome Volleyball Anime – so over the top and dramatic, I loved every second of it. Watched it several times I think.
The Vision of Escaflowne (Tenkū no Escaflowne) / 1996 –> Regular girl gets transported to another planet and finds herself in the middle of a war. Lots of fighting and magic and a bit of romancing if I remember correctly.
A Little Princess Sara (Shōkōjo Sara) / 1985 –> based on the lovely novel ‘A Little Princess’ by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
The Rose of Versailles (Berusaiyu no Bara) / 1979 –> Did I love this? I even got the DVD Box.. Watched it all over and over. It takes place in France during the French Revolution and follows a young female Palace Guard called Oscar, who was raised to be a man by her father. So much conflict, so much drama, super sad as well!!
Others I liked: Slayers, Shin Chan, Golden Boy, The Candidate for Goddess, Cowboy Bebop, Naruto, Kickers
