I don’t watch as much anime as I used to when I was younger, but occasionally I still find some real gems that resonate with me personally. I want to share a few with you today that are meaningful to me as a person, but specifically with relation to my career in tech and entertainment software. I’m going to reiterate that the reason I’m sharing these is because of something I saw in them personally—other people (including you, dear reader) are likely to take away entirely different meaning. On the surface, two of the three listed below aren’t related to game dev at all. But I’ll explain for each one.
Additionally, if you want to watch them yourself, I’ve included a couple helpful resources for each. One, the streaming service where you can find them, and two, a link to a YouTube review from Arkada of the Glass Reflection channel—a resource I can’t recommend highly enough. Each one is not a huge commitment if you want to watch (only 1 or 2 seasons each), and the review might help you decide more than my personal thoughts.
Let’s get started!
