When I first started watching anime, it was Poke’mon, and for me, it was a cartoon that I use to watch ever since I was a child. I remember when I was watching Poke’mon, my friends were laughing at me(I was in graduation and was watching in the presence of my roommates). So it was a little odd for them at the beginning. I am sure they have never seen an adult watching anime but later they got used to it. I used to watch Poke’mon just before exams also. so they tease me even now also.
In my second year, two of my roommates started watching Naruto and they started enjoying it (in 2014). Time to time they started suggesting me to stop watching Poke’mon and start anime like Naruto with a good storyline. But because I was thinking Naruto is same as Avatar, The first Airbender, it was a little messed up in my mind so I was not sure to start to watch Naruto. But after some motivation from my roommates and one of my best friends (He is a total Anime and Manga nerd), I started watching it. In the beginning, it was not very interactive and a little boring because of Naruto’s sadness but as the story moves forward, it became really interesting. At the time he joined team 7, it was at the top of its show. I know I am giving the spoiler and I am sorry for that but I can’t help it. One after another episode of Naruto, I was watching it like anything.
I am sure I was watching Naruto 8 to 9 hours daily, even more sometimes. In hostels, everyone uses to go for tea and for a snack and all I do is sit and watch Naruto. That was one of the best time of my life, I would say by that time I was an anime freak. I am sure other anime freaks can also relate.
If you watch anime, so it is like a Secret Agent, and other viewers are also like a spy and you both are completely clueless about each other. You don’t know if anyone watches anime until it came up either accidentally or you listen to someone talking about it and after that it is completely different. You start talking to that guy about good anime, good storyline, the anime he watched, you take suggestions about good animes and almost everything about the anime you watch or wanted to watch. This happened to me a lot, either in college or in the workplace.
The IMDb rating is 8.3/10 which is perfect according to me and I will definitely suggest you watch Naruto and Naruto Shippuden as both are equally good. Please excuse the typos and grammatical mistakes. This is my first blog. Thanks for reading.
