The Anime fanlisting was launched on September 18, 2011.
It is entitled Wonderland, which means "an imaginary or real place full of wonder or marvels." It was inspired by the classic Alice in Wonderland story, in which the main character falls down the rabbit hole and finds herself in a strange and enchanting fantasy world. Likewise, I think anime takes you on a similar experience, since you are suddenly thrown into an unfamiliar world where anything is possible ★ Every character and his story has its own unique charm, and before you know it, you find yourself sucked into the crazy beautiful world of the anime wonderland ♥
Version 1 Welcome to the Wonderful Wonderland features a Studio Ghibli-themed design, with Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbor Totoro, 1988) as its main focus ♥ I grew up on anime, and Totoro was probably one of the first anime I saw, so it holds a special place in my heart. I admire Miyazaki Hayao and love his works with Studio Ghibli, so the bottom of the design features a blend of my other favorite classics: Tenkuu no Shiro Laputa (Castle in the Sky, 1986), Mononoke Hime (Princess Mononoke, 1997), and Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä (Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, 1984). The lyrics featured on the design is my favorite line from Change the World, performed by V6 and used as the 1st opening theme of the anime Inu Yasha. It is an upbeat song about charging into the unknown future with courage and passion, and I think it fits the theme perfectly ♪
Japanese: 孤独にさせない みんなここにいる どんな事も 突き抜けていこう It's wonderland
Translation: I won't let you be alone. Everyone is here. Let's break our way through whatever may happen. It's wonderland.
