It was awesome to watch Pokemon then on Adult Swim Dragon Ball, DBZ, and G Gundam. Then on Saturday night Adult Swim Yu Yu Hakusho and Inuyasha. Use to pretend to be asleep on Saturday nights then wake up and turn on CN Definitely started my rise into an Otaku!

DBZ, Sailor Moon, Ghost in the Shell, Zoids, InuYasha, YuYu Hakusho, Trigun, Tenchi Muyo, Cowboy Bebop, Gundamz, Outlaw Star, Kenshin, Evangelion......a golden age, seriously.....though i suppose this all was put on paper and aired in Japan way before we all saw it. Toonami and Adult Swim aired a lot of good--and bad--stuff at the time. My only regret is that the majority of it all was dubbed--though, I feel, the dubs were generally better than they tend to be now.

Toonami was my first anime exposure, Watching Gundamn wing, cowboy bebop, and Dragonball z. I would not be into anime or manga without toonami on cartoon network. Taking me back to middle school days, Great topic.

Got into Naruto and One Piece when Toonami played that back in 05~ or so.

Then when Toonami was cancelled, I started watching the episodes online.

and I found out about other cool anime like Bleach, and I got into that and many others that were 13~26 episodes long.

and now here I am, a casual anime fan.

back then when I was like 9-12, I was all toonami plus those morning Saturday shows too (think it was fox kids and kids WB...good times). Ibroke my neck tryna see every episode that came on around that time, but was hard to get the TV. Then my dad taught me how to use a vcr recorder and I recorded it when I couldn't watch, later...my cousin introduced me to YOUTUBE, after watching a couple eps of dragonball z, I expanded into watching different animated stuff, researching constantly, and now...im on crunchyroll heheh and it was impatience of waiting on new Naruto Shippuden dub shows that brought me here...heheh crazy, but I still watch bleach and onepiece in dub only, Im used to dub for these shows so i'll stick to it and I have a long ways to go before finished. I lost track of Onepiece when it disappeared from toonami years back so I've been trying to figure out for years where to go to watch Onepiece. I think I found a good site tho till I catch up to toonami's current ep. still hate reading manga tho, never did like that

I just hate how it makes people bandwagon on shows and act like they know everything about it, it aggravates me quite a lot.

I found anime through friends who watched anime on toonami then I influenced others to watch it, so it reaches kinda of far if there are more ppl like me.

Thinking back on it, Toonami got me hooked as well as Saturday mornings. Watching shows like Digimon, Metabots, Zoids, and IGPX was my first step into becoming an Otaku, but it was not until my friends took me to Sakura-con this past year that I dove head first into this new lifestyle.

Did anyone have this moment?

They were flipping thru channels and they randomly found some anime, but the next time they tried to flip the the channels for anime they never saw it again....


There was an odd channel on satellite or something that had some anime once in a while. Saw 3x3 eyes like twice flipping through channels but never watched.....wonder what that was about, anyway.....>.>.......

There were some anime OVAs and random "movies" that showed from time to time.

Once and a while I ran across an anime that was like....people in space and the spaceships were ornamented with spaceshippy-figurehead that, I think, doubled as a fighting suit but it was like a nude woman--I'm pretty sure there were nipples or they were REALLY obviously nude women because I recall flipping channels "for my parents" when that part came on (particularly the intro) and they were around......and I'm pretty sure there was, in this same series, a kid--potentially green haired--running track but he was extremely winded because he supposedly lost a lot of weight very quickly. Maybe I'm jamming two things together but I've tried to find out what this one was because I recall enjoying the few episodes I caught......but I can never find it or what it was called. If anyone recalls the spaceshipnips and what this one was called please let me know XD
