Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Thursday, July 16 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Spreading The Love For Anime
With the goal of coming up with a platform that spreads the love for anime, YouTube Channel "Double Dragon Broz" hosted Seahawks DE L.J. Collier for a chat on how he first got in to anime, his favorite anime shows, and more.
As hosts Amenz and Lycan chatted with Collier, they said "we felt that a lot of people around the world didn't realize exactly who shares that same type of love for anime, just as much as them." Collier's platform and influence as a recognized athlete helps break down stereotypes and shows that athletes love anime, too.
"Not a lot of people know that celebrities or different people who play professional sports like anime," Collier says.
During the nearly 40 minute-long interview, Collier, Amenz, and Lycan talk about how they first got into anime.
With more free time following the football season of his senior year at Texas Christian University, Collier began watching more anime. He played various games and wanted to better understand the characters and how to use them. After watching the entire Dragon Ball series in a month, Collier began to enjoy anime more and even began to channel the energy of particular characters while he's on the football field.
On the topic of watching anime and the certain stereotypes that can come with it, L.J. explains that there's no need to hide that he enjoys watching certain shows: "There's no need, it's so fun and so cool."
Collier hopes that recognized athletes like himself openly speaking about their love for anime helps the younger generation be open to share and be proud about the things that they enjoy.
