Must Watch Anime Movies - My Own List

Posted on at

Hello everyone!  I'm on my very first blog ever here on bitLanders.  My big thanks to my sister and dad for the encouragement and of course for the opportunity to earn while enhancing my little ability to write blogs. I hope I could spend ample time here while doing my usual daily activities (school and some house chores). 

I should have written a blog introducing myself and talking about my dreams and aspirations in life being young as 16 but I thought maybe some other time, I am more inspired to compose a blog about something I am so engrossed with or of something that interests me so much.

Now did you know that Anime production companies now provide products in 112 countries, reaching some 87.2 percent of the world’s population? It's amazing isn't it? The reason of this is because Anime has many kinds of genre that is suitable for different kinds of people. Anime are also hand-drawn which makes it more interesting.

Welcome everybody to my own list of few of the Must Watch Anime Movies:

Until one day Mitsuha and Taki wants to see each other face to face but then suddenly, they stopped switching bodies.
