I think a good majority of us can recall the very first anime we watched as a kid. For me, it’s Sailor Moon.
There are multiple reasons why we should be thankful this upcoming holiday season. One of those reasons is anime. Anime brought light to my sad little world. I’m joking, but there are things that anime brought to my life that I am eternally grateful for.
