The Great Boss Lady Challenge!!!

I have been challenged by the powers that be (at work) and I’ve accepted their task! The Boss Lady at work is tired of never understand my blog posts; specifically the ones dealing with Anime and Anime subculture. So I have been tasked with giving her an Anime crash-course this summer. I have a mere two months to educate her, with her ultimate goal being an intelligible blog post of her own on the subject. It’s going to being a challenging task, as I’m not even completely versed in the significant Anime and Manga series of the last two decades, let alone of all time. But I’m developing a short list of TV series and movies which should be an adequate primer.

So far the list includes:

  • The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Cowboy Bebop
  • Ghost in the Shell
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • 5cm per Second
  • Princess Mononoke
  • Spirited Away
  • Lucky Star
  • Akira

I know this list (which features four TV series and five movies) isn’t exhaustive enough for some Anime-Otaku, but I’m hoping it’s adequate enough to introduce someone to the genre. Besides, my personal library isn’t very extensive.
