Oh boy, it’s Day 36, and the question of the day is one that brings with it a ton of soul-searching, a monumental delving of the soul, and the human psyche. That’s right, today’s question is: Who was your First Anime Crush? And oh, man, this is a tough question. I mean, I’ve been watching Anime for a long, long time, and i’ve had so many crushes that have come and gone, but trying to actually remember my first… now that’s a tough one. But… I might have an answer. After thinking about this question for almost 2 hours, at this point, I think that my first Anime Crush might be… Shana, from Shakugan no Shana.
Shakugan no Shana is a show that I watched pretty early on in the days when I actually started getting really into Anime, and I loved it. Shana is a strong character, but naive, and the development she goes through during the 3 seasons of the show is immense. She goes from a violent, bitter, immature little girl to a strong, dependable warrior. Plus, she’s just absolutely adorable; your textbook tsundere. To this day, I still love Shakugan no Shana, it’s a great show, though a bit dated.
Surprisingly, this was probably the toughest question for me to answer yet. I mean, when you’ve been watching Anime for as long as I have, you start to lose sight of some of the smaller details, especially early on, as the years go by. What are some of you guys’ first Anime Crushes, and why? let me know down in the comments, and I hope to see all of you again tomorrow!
