It Makes You Crave More
Does anyone else remember the various weird Nicktunes from the 90s? In my mind, The First Time gives the animation you’d expect but a modern tone and story. The kind that makes you wish there was a serious investment in cutesy queer stories in animated form. Especially in a serial format because, unfortunately, we still live in a world where shows featuring queer people usually have to be very dramatic, even if they are like Genera+ion.
This is why The First Time just gives you butterflies, for it is so pure, so innocent, and may make you a little envious.
You know those feel-good comics you subscribe to on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter? The one which is just cute, harmless, and reminds you that the world isn’t all s***? That’s what The First Time gives to you. Just a nice, no need for drama, strife, just the bliss of a healthy relationship, break from the world.
