7 Shows That Will Awaken Your Inner Anime-Lover

Animation is a beautiful tool that allows creators to tell wonderful stories. Just because these stories are from a culture different than what you're probably used to doesn't mean you shouldn't give them a chance!

FLCL

If you're a fan of colorful and beautiful animation that tells multiple stories, this one is for you. The first episode aired in 2000. Lucky for us, Adult Swim has recently renewed FLCL for a second and third season. This is an anime that can be watched and rewatched in order to gain new appreciation for characters and little details.

Steins; Gate

Steins; Gate was beautifully adapted from a visual novel. Every single character has a unique personality and something to add to the story and progression of the plot. When watching for the first time, I laughed, I teared up a bit, and I was glued to my screen in suspense and excitement wondering what was going to happen next. Steins; Gate is a sci-fi action with comedy and hints of drama. Although it is a bit slow to start off, getting to episode 12 is like a reward as things immediately pick up speed and things really get interesting.

Death Note

You've heard of this one before. There's a live-action adaptation on Netflix. Don't watch that. Watch the original, it's better, I promise.

Ping Pong The Animation

If you can learn to love the unique style of animation, you can learn to love Ping Pong The Animation. This is by far the most relatable anime imaginable. Were you a high school athlete? Have you ever done anything you loved to do competitively? If you answered yes to either of those questions, I promise you, you will relate to and thoroughly enjoy this anime. It's sad and it's happy. It has the capability to make you laugh and bring a tear to your eye.

Attack On Titan

You've probably heard of this one, too. Attack on Titan is fun to watch and keeps you on your toes when you think you're about to guess what happens next.

Sword Art Online

If you die in the game, you die in real life.

Interesting ideas and colorful animation

Cowboy Bebop

A true classic. Cowboy Bebop is an anime you don't have to watch in its entirety to enjoy. You can watch an episode here and an episode there out of order and still enjoy the plot progression and characters.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
