Hello. I don’t know if you heard, but there is a new anime that just came out yesterday. It’s called The Dragon Prince, and it’s from the creators of Avatar: the Last Airbender! If you have been reading my blogs, you would know that I really enjoyed that anime.
I saw an advertisement for The Dragon Prince somewhere on FaceBook, and was intrigued, so I googled it, and saw the release date, September 14th, 2018. I bookmarked it in my calendar to make sure I didn’t forget. Today, I watched the first episode, and honestly, I wasn’t too impressed. The visuals were quite beautiful, but different than what I am used to seeing in an anime. There are some 3D animation effects combined with hand-drawn pictures, and I wasn’t sure how to feel about the style choice. Some of the characters’ personalities were a little off-putting too, but I remember feeling the same way about the characters in Avatar when i first watched it, but later came to love, so I’ll just be patient and have faith that it will be good, and give me enjoyment similar to that which Avatar gave me.
I really like watching anime. Ghibli movies really captured my heart, and ignited my curiosity in Japan. What about you? Do you like anime? What are some of your favorites? I loved American cartoons as a kid. I was a big fan, and watched them every day, or every Saturday, depending on when it came on the TV. What do you think of American style anime?
