Animation is a fascinating subject, if you ask me. In animation, you can tell a large variety of stories. I firmly believe that there is an animation for any single story that you could possibly want to hear and see. Personally, animation has really impacted my life in multiple ways, in multiple stages of my life.
In my childhood, I was a Cartoon Network kid. I grew up on Looney Tunes, Scooby-Doo Where Are You?, Pokémon, and others that I can’t remember. Looney Tunes was great growing up with because I got to see the same cartoons my parents grew up with. Same goes with Scooby-Doo. Finally, Pokémon was my introduction to anime, much like some people.
In Middle School, I watched the Secret Saturdays. This show was awesome and I never missed an episode! It was all about a family of cryptozoologist discovering cryptids making sure the villainous V.V Argost didn’t get them first. The show made me laugh, cry, and even made me feel fear. One villain was a chef. Doesn’t sound too bad, until you realize he has a mouth like the Predator from Predator!
High School to Present is Gravity Falls and RWBY. Gravity Falls made me theorize like I never had before! Every detail of that show was important for the overarching mystery. RWBY is what led me to Allagesofgeek. Me arriving in AAOG also allowed me to become a writer for them. Now I have a decent amount of articles under my belt!
In closing, respect animation. There are so many beautiful films. Basically, anything from Studio Ghibli will take your breath away and you can feel the passion from the creators.
