I always liked animated shows and movies, because they were a door to another world, where bad things can happen, but no one gets hurt for real. And since i’m an only child with working parents and few friends, this is how i learned many things in the first place, for better or worse, because life is not a cartoon.
I grew up with Alvin and the Chipmunks, Batman, Bugs Bunny, Hey Arnold, Inspector Gadget, Ninja Turtles, Pink Panther, Pinky and the Brain, Rugrats, Scooby-Doo, Scrooge McDuck, Superman, Sylvester and Tweety, TaleSpin, The Flintstones, The Real Ghostbusters, The Smurfs, Tom and Jerry, and, as you already know, The Simpsons and Futurama.
But except for Sailor Moon, Anime never found the way to me, until i stopped watching German TV some years ago, and started to get my shows and movies exclusively through the internet, without all these ads and nonsense. Thanks to the “uBlock Origin” ad-blocking browser extension by Raymond Hill. In the past couple of hours i binge-watched and really enjoyed:
- Mardock Scramble: The First Compression (2010)
- Mardock Scramble: The Second Combustion (2011)
- Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust (2012)
