I'm never gonna stop watching Pokemon, never...

I don't get why Ash/Satoshi gets so much hate. He honestly makes me like the anime way more than the games.

avatar

Childhood memories, favourite childhood show ever. Unfortunately I grew up and it can't seem to interest me anymore. I do miss it.

avatar

This show has made my childhood! I played almost every game that was available for the Nintendo Game Boy and I'm sure it made me a better person! Thank you Pokémon for being so great and for making me so happy!

The anime that ruled our childhoods

The Top Anime Classics To Watch Now (Including Pokémon)

Detective Conan

This anime is also known as “Case Closed” and as you can guess from its title, it is a detective series. The story has a twist, where the main character’s age has been reversed, so he looks like a child, instead of his own age. He gets into a lot of trouble while trying to solve his cases, especially because he is still only a high school student. He tags along with his best friend’s dad, who is actually a private detective.

Naruto Shippuden

This is one of the first animes I remember watching on my tv. The story follows a boy on his path to become the strongest ninja there is. In his way, there are many enemies that he must defeat in order to truly be the best there ever was. With a lot of enemies and also later some friends becoming enemies, it is a lot to deal with for anyone, especially for a young boy like him.

Hunter x Hunter

When Gon gets abandoned by his father, he must learn to navigate through life without him. His father is a well-known hunter and Gon decides to take after him and become a hunter himself. Besides wanting to look for animals, treasures and criminals, he is also determined to find his father as well. On his journey, he meets a lot of other hunters and encounters things he never expected to see.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
