Anonymous asked:Has there ever been any sort of book or show that had such an impact on you that it changed the way you looked at life?
Oh hello! I heard about you anon~ I think you visited some friends of mine.
There have been a couple of things that I have read or watched that has changed my life, and therefore the way I look at things in my life. One of those things being Sailor Moon.
Not only was it my first anime, but it was the first female centric show I had ever watched. Not only did it show me that, yes, girls could be awesome, but Makoto in particular was one of the most amazing characters to me. I could relate with her a lot, and so I looked up to her and started to look at myself in a different light. My current self confidence didn’t stem from that, but it was definitely a start.
This is going to sound hilarious, and it’s not as life changing as the former, but another one of those first things was the Animorphs books. Not only did it open me up to thinking about fantasy books in a different way (besides being one of the first books without pictures that I read) and want to seek them out. That’s where my love of books began. I’m sure that I may have found something along the road of growing up, but not as early if I hadn’t found Animorphs.
