Hello everyone!

I'm Italian student, born 1991, graduate in Japanese language and culture. Living my life as a would-be rock musician, lover of books, music, videogames, languages, politics, philosophy and, of course, anime. You could call me a long-time anime fan, but my conscious adventure into the territory started only in 2008.

I watched anime for my whole childhood, only I didn't know I was. I grew up with stuff like Dragon Ball, Heidi, Digimon, Lupin the Third, Captain Tsubasa, and so on, but I didn't know it was something from Japan called "anime". Sure, I could tell they were somehow different from Disney or Cartoon Network stuff, but that was it.

Time passed, I somehow found out about the word "anime". My brother-in-law and my sister would often tell me about the anime world THEY grew up with, and, strangely enough, I got nostalgic about the stuff I didn't watch but kind of knew about (a sort of Sehnsucht if you will), like Mazinger Z, Grendeizer, Captain Harlock, and so on. So I started longing for that world I missed.

Then, something...curious happened. At that time, it was probably early 2008, the song "These are the days of our lives" by Queen struck me with the force of a thousand Rasengan. That is one POWERFUL song, it can make you nostalgic about ANYTHING. You'll want your childhood back when you hear it. Well, it made me nostalgic especially about what I had missed in my youth, and about the cartoons that made my childhood. At about the same time, I realised that everyone of them I still had fond memories of was an anime...so I kind of suddently realised that, with that nostalgia and huge fascination of mine, I already WAS an anime fan. So...I decided to throw myself in that world, with three goals: 1)To watch the series that made the 80's and '70's and that I had missed; 2)To watch and live again the series which made by childhood; 3)To watch what that "anime" thing has to offer nowadays.

I owe Freddie Mercury my time-consuming passion for anime and manga, basically.

I decided to start with the series that held (and still holds) the dearest place of the "Nostalgia Department" in my heart: Digimon Adventure. And that's how I discovered the wonderful world of FANSUB and the "Rule of Japanese Dub Supremacy". Italy, too, suffers the horrible phenomenon of censorship, poor scripts, and "let's-dumb-it-down-and-make-it-more-childish-for-kids" kind of adaptation. And then came Evangelion, Harlock, Naruto, and I went on from there.

Note that I'm not counting as "watched" the anime I saw in my childhood, so my "anime-life-o-meter" thingy counts only from 2008 on. Note also that my ratings are for the "general watching experience" I got, technical aspects are taken into account only to a certain extent.

Per quanto mi riguarda le ultime 15 puntate di Tamers sono tra i migliori anime che io abbia mai visto proprio per le caratteristiche che dici tu, il problema è che nelle quasi 40 puntate precedenti c'è il nulla. Soprattutto i personaggi sembrano non capire mai cosa gli accade intorno, questo anche alla fine.

Frontier è abbastanza scontata ma è più movimentata di Tamers e i personaggi sono un po' più svegli. Diciamo che non sorprende ma si fa guardare secondo me, il design dei nuovi digimon invece mi fa cagare xD

No non ho visto nessun film della serie ma li "pronti sul PC" quindi vorrei vederli tutti prima o poi.

Ho sistemato il profilo e tolto D'alema xD Hai visto davvero un sacco di anime, mi sento così insignificante al confronto.

Che mi dici dei Digimon? Per ora sono arrivato a Frontier che mi sta piacendo, le successive serie meritano?Tamers non mi è piaciuta granché, ho trovato tutti i personaggi solo accennati con tutto che erano pochissimo al confronto delle prime 2 serie. Poi anche tutti quei personaggi a cui viene affidato un Digimon senza che combattano mai o che venga mai approfondito il loro rapporto, ho trovato tutto molto superficiale tranne la saga del D-Reaper, quella è stata davvero ben curata, sia visivamente sia come temi affrontati.

Ti dirò che quasi quasi ce lo lascio xD

Comunque è tutto provvisorio, ho messo un paio di cose che ricordavo al volo ma appena mi va di perderci 2 minuti completo il profilo

Hello!  sothis is redesigning the anime-planet site, and plans to roll out an awesome new site design in July, we believe. The blog feature is not part of the new design, and it is going away.  More information about this here:  Announcement: the blog feature is being deprecated topic link.  (Be sure to check out the new site design when it goes live!)

The blog pages are going away, and will be gone when the site redesign goes live. Your blog here will be removed from the site.

So, if want to keep the information posted in your blog, you will need to copy this information someplace else on the site. If you have any questions how or where to do this, please feel free to get back to me, and I will try to assist.
