My search engine was like a second home, with my family at home.
My parents’ Internet was so good, I didn’t have to worry about getting Google’s site blocked.
I could even use it to search for an app like Gmail, but Google was so awesome.
But I didn.
I used it for searching for anime.
I searched for books and movies I’d never seen before, but I also searched for things that seemed like anime.
And I did it all in Google.
I was hooked.
So when Google launched its Anime Search engine, I was ecstatic.
My search history was organized by anime.
My favorites were listed by name and by episode.
I got recommendations.
I had a list of things I should watch.
I’d found my new home, and I was so excited.
But when I first looked up “anime” in Google, I couldn’t find anything.
“Anime Search” seemed like a strange name, given that it was actually an abbreviation for the Japanese word for “animes.”
The first time I tried searching for an anime, I got the error message “You are looking for a Japanese TV show.
Please go to another page.”
And the second time, “You’re searching for Anime Search.
Please try again.”
I was in a quandary.
I knew I couldn’ t find any anime, but the search was still working for me.
I wasn’t sure what to do, but this didn’t seem like a problem.
I kept searching for “Animes” on Google, and soon enough, the search engine seemed to be giving me answers.
But these answers didn’t tell me much.
As the years went by, Google’s searches for “animated content” got more complex.
The search bar began to show up in new ways.
It would list the most popular anime and games on Google.
In some cases, the anime was on the site’s main page.
In other cases, there were subtler clues.
If I clicked on a link, I’d get a video description of the anime, or the trailer for an upcoming anime.
But if I tried to go to a specific anime on YouTube, I could see that it wasn’t available there.
I wondered if there was something I was missing.
And then, I saw that the search results for the word “animation” were not the only way to find anime.
There was also a list for the term “animator.”
But that list also included the word animation.
“Animator” was a strange term, because it meant “an artist” or “artist who makes animated films.”
But in Japan, there was no word for anime animation.
So why was “animators” listed in the search bar?
I didn’ t know what I was looking for.
The anime search was confusing and weird, and it wasn’ t obvious that I wanted to see anime.
So I thought about the search box.
I thought, Why don’ t I just say I want to see an anime?
I thought that would make sense, given the word I wanted: “Animated.”
So I clicked “Animate,” and a few seconds later, my search was redirected to a page where I could find a few anime-related links.
In the “AniSearch” section, I found a list called “Anchor Links.”
The list included links to videos that would show a user watching an anime.
These links, called “anchor links,” were an improvement over the searchbar.
The videos were still linked to the anime search bar, but they were more clear.
I clicked one of these links and it appeared as an animated video.
I started watching the video, and the video changed.
I watched a character dance, a song, a scene from an anime and a line from a book.
The video changed from a quiet movie to a loud music video.
The animated video was more immersive than the search, and its videos were easier to understand.
But it was not an easy task.
I found it difficult to make out the words in the subtitles.
Sometimes, the subtitles said things like, “This movie is the title of the book.”
Other times, the subtitle said things that were hard to understand: “This video is about the protagonist.”
Other than that, the video seemed to have no captions.
“What was the subtitle?”
I asked myself.
I didn”t know what the subtitles meant.
It seemed to indicate some sort of narration.
But the subtitles did not explain why the video was animated.
I began to think, maybe it’s because I had no idea what an anime was, and Google was just showing me the things I already knew.
So, I clicked the “anchors” link, and then I saw a list like the ones from “AnoSearch.”
The videos on the list seemed to show anime and video clips.
I followed the
