I am a life-long anime fan, but I have been out of the loop for the last decade or so.
When my twelve-year-old niece started mentioning this new anime called “My Hero Academia,” I knew that this show was important to her. I needed to watch it so that I could be that cool Aunt.
But, as a professional mid-30-something with Responsibilities, I found it very difficult to simply sit down to watch anime like I used to. I didn’t want to get pulled into a binge, and 20 minutes did not feel like enough time to get invested.
