Oh, my. Look at all this nostalgia assaulting me. Why can’t I handle all these memories of I don’t give a fuck because I’m in middle school and I don’t find it interesting if it doesn’t have anime fights in it.
I was thinking that maybe I should browse my lists once again because my memory clearly doesn’t help. But there’s no need for it.
You see, back in the days I would watch anything anime. Does it have big eyes and speaks a language I clearly don’t and will never understand? Oh fuck, I’m gonna watch it like there’s no tomorrow. Until one day. One day I was watching Animax, the only channel that would broadcast anime in my country and there was this show. Again. Boring as fuck. So boring, I realized I never actually paid attention to it. Nothing ever happened, the main character was an idiot with no brain, afraid to speak and all that. It also had a horrible add. It was Kamichu!
Maybe I should start feeling bad for adding series I can’t talk much about. But it’s a challenge about anime I think was bad, of course I did myself a favor and either didn’t watch them or I completely erased them from memory. Life’s too short to deal with too much shit.
Kamichu! is that super plain and boring slice of life, mixed with a bit of fantasy. But imagine how poorly it had to be made if it wasn’t of interest for a fifth grader obsessed with anime who also didn’t have much to choose from. For real now.
I don’t remember much except for the fact that the protagonist seemed dumb, was afraid to talk, seemed to be constantly on (the bad kind of) drugs and she had a crush on her classmate. I think the character design and the overall animation put me off in the first place, but the story didn’t do any good either. I was too bored to even consider it a deal with it until it’s time for Inuyasha show. I think I liked to watch the news better. And that says a lot if you think about the fact that I was in motherfucking fifth grade.
Of course I didn’t watch it to the end. I have no idea what’s going on. They were making chocolate in an episode. They were going to school a lot. There were mountains. First show I’ve ever dropped. And it was as easy as changing the channel. Man, life used to be much simpler back in 2005.
I now find it ironic that my first disliked series was part of what was going to become my favorite genre. But shit happens to everyone.
