isn’t much to say. Instead I’m gonna show you a timeline and some anime. Oh and lots of good anime can also be found just right under this post with links to their MAL entries (Just for you! I’m doing this again after not saving it and crying over all the lost letters).
Althrough I started watching anime just a few years ago (with 2011 being the first year I watched a ton of it) we should start in 1998 I think 🙂
1998: is by the way the year the very fist Yu-Gi-Oh series and Cardcaptor Sakura started airing in Japan. There are also the first Pokemon movie (which is still good) and the second (!) Conan movie that came out that year as well. And if you still remember Flint the Time Detective you are a good fellow 😉
- Cowboy Bebop
- Serial Experiments Lain
1999: is the year the second Pokemon Movie aired in Japan. In Germany we got to see it one year after. Ah, sweet memories. Later we got Monster Farm airing in german television which originally also aired in 1999.
- Great Teacher Onizuka
- Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku
- One Piece (hey it’s good)
2000: is the year of the second Digimon Adventure series! By that time Shin-chan already had 8(!) movies out!
- Hajime no Ippo
2001: The very beginning of the Azumanga Daioh franchise starting as web series. Around the same time Beyblade got it first animated debut and Shaman king also got green light for an animated series. Even Kirby got a series back then.
- Spirited Away
2002: is the year of shoujo or so it seems! With series like Chobits, Full Moon wo Sagashite and Tokyo Mew Mew getting their anime AND Azumanga Daioh’s first tv debut all airing in 2002 it was a good year for young girls back then 🙂 But there was also the start of Naruto and Mobile Suit Gundam Seed.
- Full Metal Panic!
- Saishuu Heiki Kanojo
- Haibane Renmei
2003: The year in which the Sonic x series aired (late it is doomed to be a meme… gotta go fast). There was also Astro Boy getting a tv series and Detective Conan already getting it’s seventh movie. Even F-Zero got an anime.
- Last Exile
- Kino’s Journey
