My Anime Memories

I promised Nicollzg to post about anime that work for me. It wasn’t easy, I had a blank mind when I started suddenly thinking of anime I like. What came to my mind is mainly old stuff, from 80s and 90s. Am I getting that old to remember only distant past?

I won’t (kinda) write about science fiction anime because it would dominate the whole post. I’ll write about sf anime later on, maybe in time for The 2015 Sci-Fi Experience, maybe later. I selected three themes: comedy, vampires and fantasy.
