When I think about the geeky interests I have, anime has always been my first love before video games. I obsessively searched for and explored all the anime I could get my hands on. I fell in love with many and faithfully rewatched them when the mood struck. But as I got older and adult responsibilities took over my time, anime steadily declined for me. I could no longer keep up with what was new and critically acclaimed by anime fans, and anime was the last thing I seemed to want to watch when I had some downtime.
I may be considered old and no longer aware of what’s hip and cool in the anime world, but there will always be those few that will forever be evergreen in my mind. Ones I will gladly return to if I felt like revisiting my old love anime.

The last few months have been a non-stop project of settling in and furnishing the new apartment I moved into. Every furniture and their placement has been carefully considered to put together a room the way I want it. Until now I’m nowhere near done with getting every room setup. There’s still plenty more furniture to buy and small accents to tie everything together. But one room I’m almost finished with is my bedroom, and it reflects everything I have loved since I was a kid.

Beloved video games are no stranger to getting adapted for television, whether it be live action or anime form. Depending on the adaptation it can be faithfully done while providing an introduction into a video game some have never played before, or it can be a major letdown for those who have played the game and have been hoping the adaptation would further enhance what they experienced from the game. For The World Ends With You: The Animation it wasn’t the most exciting adaptation of a video game like I thought it would be.

We may all be so over 2020 that we’re looking to put it out of its misery once and for all, but I’m one of the ones who has turned a crap year into one of opportunity. It has been surprisingly productive for my creative pursuits, finishing some older games that have been sitting in my backlog for far too long, getting a lot of reading done, and watching some movies or shows stuck in my queue for months. Among those shows I’ve tried to finish up is Netflix’s Aggretsuko, however, I recently realized that this show is losing some of its appeal that got me watching in the first place.

Anime has always been my first love. Ever since Sailor Moon debuted in North America in the 1990s, it became my entry point into the vast and wonderful world of Japanese animation. I discovered Cardcaptor Sakura, Fushigi Yugi, Ayashi no Ceres, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and so much more. Manga followed closely behind, mostly because many of the anime I fell in love with were already based on a manga series. When homework and studying were done during my high school and college years, I couldn’t wait to spend my weekends or vacations from school diving into an anime series I was into. Now with those days long behind me, I find my anime viewing to be dwindling until a great sense of nostalgia (or boredom) nudges me to see what’s currently available on streaming.

If you happen to be a gamer and a fan of anime, there are probably some video games where you thought, “Man, this would be fantastic as an anime. It already plays like an interactive anime game anyway!” One of those video games for me is Square Enix’s 2007 Nintendo DS game The World Ends With You. Apparently, the anime gods have smiled upon us because it’s actually happening.

As we get closer and closer to 2020, there have been plenty of lists all over the Internet to reflect on 10 years of entertainment, politics, fashion, celebrity news, video games, and just about every topic you can think of. Finishing one decade and entering a new one feels significant, and yet it’s easy to forget what has come and gone as we move through the current of life. Before we put another decade behind us, I want to look back on some of the best anime that left the biggest impression on me over the last 10 years.

Two weeks ago, the weekend of November 15-17, was Anime NYC at the Jacob Javits Center. Being a longtime anime fan, the convention was something I was interested in attending but decided against going after purchasing a Saturday pass for PAX East next year. With the holiday season here and Christmas shopping for friends and family to consider, I had to budget my money wisely. When a last minute opportunity to attend Anime NYC on a Saturday came up, I naturally accepted the offer. Here are my impressions from the convention.
