Various Anime from the other worlds, dimensions, and timelines!
So, a friend of mine (sometimes my intel, or people who scout for information) has posted a sort of chain or called as the ‘bandwagon’ which tells about what are the ten Anime series that are influential, or likewise popular. This was actually originated from an another bandwagon which tells about the ten influential video games. So then, I tried joining this ‘senseless’ bandwagon and then I tried posting them daily the ten Anime series that I had in mind.
From the description, read below:
Day n/10: Ten animes that have had a great influence on me, no matter the era. One screenshot, no titles, no description.Basically, it was originated from a bandwagon Facebook post.
