Dear reader, in one of my first articles i have written, that my first contact with Japanese Anime has been Sailor Moon. As it turns out this is not true and i wasn’t even aware that it is not. I have been watching Anime since my early childhood, in my native language of course, which is german. I found this out today, because i was searching for Nils Holgersson episodes on youtube and i thought by myself: “Hey, why don’t you look for the Japanese name of this Anime,” which is what i did. And by looking the name up via google i realized, that i was in fact watching Anime since i was a little child, contrary to what i have been writing in my other article.
The original title of this Anime is ニルスのふしぎな旅 (ニルスのふしぎなたび) Nils fantastic journey.
Another Anime from my childhood is 赤毛のアン (あかげのアン) Red-haired Anne or Anne of Green Gables.
Then there was 小さなバイキングビッケ(ちいさなバイキングビッケ) Little Viking Vicky.
And also 小公女セーラ (しょうこうじょサーラ) A little Princess Sara.
Not to forget スプーンおばさん Miss Pepperpot.
There was also シートン動物記 りすのバナー (シートンどうぶつきりすのバナー) Bannertail The Story of Grey Squirrel.
And last but not least ペリーヌ物語 (ぺりーヌものがたり) The story of Perrine.
These are probably only just a fraction of all the old Anime i was watching in my childhood. And all of those videos are bringing back many fond childhood memories. By watching these videos linked above, dear reader, i hope that you too will remember the good times, when you were a child.
