Nostalgia Critics and Perspective on Quality

671022 Traversing through columns of shelves in a isolated video rental store, glamoring at all boxes stocked on each row with many titles to choose from. As a 7 year old child, I had strong sense of acquisitiveness towards any fine piece of artwork cover. Easily enamored by the covers of Princess Mononoke, Jin Roh Wolf Brigade, and Patlabor, these anime titles would be my selection for enjoyment on a weekend in 97′. I didn’t have the luxury of paid extra channels and the internet wasn’t as advanced to stream or download anime. Ah, the convenience of VHS rental stores and finding VHS tapes that only had one episode. I was exposed to Anime since my childhood, it was a delightful experience just to able to watch an episode of You’re Under Arrest whenever my father obtained a new VHS. Every episode I watched kept me enjoyed throughout harsh winters of British Columbia,loneliness, and partial escape from reality. Anime to me was more than childish cartoons, it is a form of medium entertainment deployed in different unique art styles. There’s an Anime for everyone out there, from all certain types of genre. such as, sports, action, romance, slice of life and etc.
