My Childhood Anime #3

So, I wake up with a sore neck after dreaming that I met Justin Beiber pretending I don't know him. He had such an odd face when I said that. But, he was really nice, a little arrogant yeah, but he was actually sweet in my dreams. lol I'm not  a fan of him nor a hater so it's a little strange that I would dream of him.

Our maid told me that grandma asked for mom's cook book and that she told her she doesn't know where the are. She then asked her to ask me and she told her I'm sleeping. Which was true, I was. But, I'm not gonna give the book to her. God knows it wont come back, and if it did. I don't know when or in what form. I really lost much respect for my grandma, then again, I don't think I liked her a lot as a child either.

On Spacetoon I watched an episode of :

9) Himitsu No Hanazono no (Eng: The Secret Garden) (Ar: الحديقة السرية) pub: (1991)

It is about a little girl named Mary that moves to her uncle's mansion. There she befriends a servant boy and his older sister. She later on befriends her crippled and arrogant cousin cole (collin) and trys to help him recover. Those kids discover the secret garden and try to liven it up again and discover the secrets that had occurred between its walls.

----cut off----

10) Sailor moon (1995)

Now, I never watched this in Arabic  In fact I watched this in Canada, but since I was under the age of ten, it was part of my childhood. I never had the chance to watch more than several episodes, but I still loved it, though I would never watch it again due to it being so boring. I had colouring books of Sailor moon and an action figure of sailor Neptune  I think this anime taught me what a lesbian was and the word "tiara".
It was about a girl, sailor moon  who was also some form of superhero. She had joined with other women to protect the earth. Or at least that's what I understood. They had to disguise themselves though, like every other superhero out there.

11) Bomberman B-daman Bakugaiden (Ar: بيدابول) pub: 1998

It was about B-da people who, were in another world and as most anime, fought the evil guys! Their way of fighting was to shoot B-da balls from their stomachs out to the enemy. I'm not sure how this was in Japanese or English, but in Arabic the main character's names were based on their colour. Red was hamraa, white was abyad, and black was aswad. Typically again, black used to be the evil, emo, angst, cool guy who eventually joins the good side.

I think I used to watch it for the sake of the really fun arabic theme song. My favorite thing about arabic dubs, to this day, is the creative theme songs they recreate.

Doraemon (Ar: عبقور) Pub: 1973

Now, this is a pretty famous anime worldwide. It is about a cat from the future who visits our boy protagonist (on the far left of the pic below) to warn him about the debt he will inherit to his grandchildren due to his behavior.  This cat, of course, is no ordinary cat. It is a cat with a magical pouch, anything can be pulled out of that thing. The cat, doraemon, helps the little boy overcome certain bad habits, escape trouble, and or face his problems. Very educational, though I think I was too young to really remember much of it all.


  1. OMG ALL THE FEELS♥ I grew up watching these anime series as well!

    P.S I've replied to your comment on my blog. In a nutshell, you can read Ouran High School Host Club, Hana Kimi and 1/2 Prince if you already hadn't.
    I strongly recommend 1/2 Prince and Ouran. :)
