Nostalgia (1/2)

Hi guys! Pérez reporting for duty. This past week I was really nostalgic. On Monday I saw Toy Story 3 in Starz. This movie usually makes my eyes watery in the final scenes when Woody says good-bye to Andy (first with the help of Bonnie and later by himself when Andy drives to the horizon.) The thing that officially made me nostalgic was in the night when I was watching videos on YouTube. I somehow ended up watching videos of Jurassic Park (Jurassic Park was a huge thing in my childhood :') ) So thanks to those movies, I ended up having a very nostalgic week remembering my childhood everyday. I remembered the videogames that I grew up with, like Super Mario 64, Pokémon Stadium, Chameleon Twist (I don't expect you to know it XD ), StarFox 64, TLOZ: Majora's Mask (I liked it more tha Ocarina of Time), etc. etc. I also remembered the TV shows that I never missed, like SpongeBob, Jimmy Neutron, Catdog, Hey Arnold!, Rocko's Modern Life, 31 Minutos (Latin Americans should know it :P ), Johnny Bravo, Tom and Jerry, THE SIMPSONS (my favorite show of all times).
Since this is an animé post, I will tell you about my favorite childhood anime's. So here we go!

1- InuYasha
Definitely my favorite animé of all times. I remembered being in 3rd grade and rushed the bus driver to go fast because I wanted to get home to watch InuYasha. It is simply an extraordinaire animé. I really liked InuYasha because of many reasons. I think that the 3 things that I liked  the most were the story, the characters (specially Aome :P ) and the battles. I really loved when InuYasha's demon part was released and he killed monsters so easily.

2- Dragon Ball
Perhaps the mot popular animé from all times. This animé definitely changed my life. It was the first animé that I saw. I remember having 2 T-shirts of Goku when I was in kindergarden!! This is my favorite animé after InuYasha. Trust me, it was really difficult for me to choose between Dragon Ball and InuYasha. I think that the best thing of Dragon Ball was the epic battles. My personal favorite is Majin Vegeta vs Majin Buu. I cried when Vegeta sacrificed himself to kill Majin Buu.

3-  Pokémon
Ahhhh Pokémon. "I've gotta catch 'em all" I really loved pokémon. It was so different, original than the rest of the animés that I had seen. My favorite season was Johto. My favorite pokémons are
Nidoking and
I have a complete list of my favorite pokémons generation by generation, and I'm going to publish it in my next animé post :D

4- Digimon
Digimon... Pokémon's arch-enemy (according to many people.) Even though I didn't like it as much as I did with Pokémon, this was a very entertaining animé. My favorite season was the third one. I didn't like a lot the 4th season and I don't want to see the 5th one. I really liked Guilmon and Gabumon, you could say they are my two favorite basic digimons... Like I said, my favorite season was the third, and for some reason, I don't remember a lot of the 2nd season.

5- Yu-Gi-Oh!
The animé that started a world phenomena almost as big as Pokémon. My favorite part was the saga with Marik. He is one of my favorite animé villains of all time! The best thing of that saga was when Yugi finally got the three Egyptian Gods. The episode I'll never forget is the match of Mai Valentine vs Marik. I still remember how she failed to summon Ra, and how she started forgetting her friends. I watched the show until the light dudes appeared in GX.

Well, those are some of the animés I saw during my childhood. I also liked to watch Ultimate Muscle (Kid Músculo), Sakura Card Captors, Beyblade (the original), Samurai X (I would have written about it, but I decided to write about it in part 2), Captain Tsubasa, Saint Seiya, Sailor Moon, etc.

I hope you liked this post as much as I liked writing it. See you next time!
So tell us guys, which were some of the animés you saw during your childhood (until you were 13)? Tell us in the comment section below. :D



  1. WTF????? How the HELL can you like more Majoras Mask than Ocarina of Time???

  3. You're welcome Lord Nebur.
    Well, one reason it is that Majora's Mask was my first Zelda game, also the first one I finished completely. Ocarina of Time is a great game, but for some reason I always liked Majora's a little bit more. So I guess it is because of the sentimental part XD

  4. Great article, You’ve done a formidable job. Thank you. Have you seen this anime's merchandise, its pretty amazing! I just bought mine at PIJ, it is so cool!
