I was introduced to a lot of different things thanks to toonami. While I no longer have cable and cannot watch toonami... I am not really one to miss it as much as I should. I mean I have crunchyroll and funimation giving me all the stuff that I need these days. Still toonami did some great things for me.

For instance when I would attend summer camps for the majority of my summer break I learned how to set up the VCR. For those of you who are youngins that was the old school DVR. However, unlike a DVR, which can seem telepathic, the VCR required you to have a brain to use. By the time I got into high school I had a setup which probably could have landed me in prison for piracy. Still it was fun and I was forever worshiped in the family because I could set their VCR clock.

Still I am not all that excited that Toonami is back to be honest. It had its fun but things change. Now that anime is easier to get there is no real reason to have toonami around. I can watch all the shows that they play before they play them. Which is kind of sad, but... you know... that is just life. Still it was amazing back in the day. Especially when they got permission to just play tons of random anime in a one-shot fashion that you will never see again.

I got introduced to anime when I saw the movie Akira. The Sci-Fi channel Saturday morning anime is what got the ball rolling for my love for anime http://youtu.be/GEGzjlPk7sM

My first exposure to anime was also through the Sci-Fi channel (Sci-Fi, or Syfy, or whatever the hell they're calling it now's really gone downhill in the many years since then though).

Toonami didn't introduce Me to Anime, but it IS something that I feel very passionate about keeping up with, just because. I very RARELY ever miss it when each Saturday of the Weekends comes around. Go ahead...Ask Faietus if You don't believe Me!

It didn't introduce me to anime because I had seen anime previously but it was all still just cartoons to me as a kid.

What Toonami did do for me and basically a lot of other people was give anime a much wider exposure than it ever had and Toonami treated it as anime and not just as cartoons.

Ah, that would be the days before having to air the...whole....DBZ Buu Saga drove a Berlin-wall wedge between Cartoon Network and mainstream afternoon/prime-time anime fans, around the same time as the network was already getting a little too spoiled and crabby about the Hanna-Barbera reruns--
After that, the Williams Street potheads took over and mixed their airings of Bleach with fan-bashing pokes of "Anime is teh Geek", showing that the network was more on the side of their own Adventure Time stoners, who still believed that anime fans were weird little convention fanboys who watched grunting steroid musclemen hit each other.

As for me, my first anime was on VHS tapes, legit and il, as they should have been back then. Like the Narutards today, if you had to watch a show on cable because it was free, you were just too danged lazy.
(In fact, if I even say most of my 90's anime was on purple VHS tapes, no one here would have the slightest idea of why that was important.)

It was either Toonami, Jetix or Fox Kids. All of which were pretty damn great!
