Anime Day is a long-standing tradition founded in 1912. Since then, every April 15, otakus from all over the globe come together to celebrate this occasion in the form of conventions and meet-and-greets. Large scale conventions are not possible with the current COVID-19 pandemic. However, this did not stop people from celebrating this annual occasion.
Shonen Jump wished everyone a happy Anime Day, and asked otakus a question – “What’s your all-time favorite Shonen Jump Anime? and Why?” Fans of various shows responded with their answer and reasoning, which turned out deeper than people thought.
Its Dragon Ball. Because not only was it the first anime I'd experienced but its helped shape me in the years of my life up to now. Being apart of the community is just another bonus.

Being a part of a community of people who appreciate the same anime and manga as you do is also one of the fun sides of being an otaku. Happy Belated Anime Day!
