How it started - my journey with anime
When l was young, l was always interested in movies and the engaging stories that seemed larger than life. I watched most hollywood movies that had came out during the year, and previous years as well and soon came at a conclusion - I yearned for more.
So I turned my attention to the anime world, an unknown land of mysterious visuals and stories waiting to be discovered. I had heard bits and pieces about anime, but never really knew what it was. So I created an AnimeLab account, chose a series that seemed interesting and ended up with........ Eromanga-sensei.
Quite bold for my first choice, cultured even. But I ended up really enjoying it; it had funny and exaggerated characters, bizarre storylines - but now l have Vietnam flashbacks whenever l think back to first meeting Megumi and her repetition of a certain word. Fast-forward a few years, and now l've managed to check-off most anime on my to-watch-list and catching up with seasonal airing anime. An impressive feat.
Steins; Gate, Psycho-Pass, Monogatari, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, Attack on Titan, Jojo's Bizzare Adventure, Nichijou, Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, Made in Abyss, Kill la Kill, Code Geass, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Fate - just to name a "few", are some of my favourites from my journey with anime.
Now, thank you to those who have read this far into this long story. I started the clothing brand as a side hobby, that l'd work on in my spare time as a way to distract myself from.
