Does anyone here know if Nadia was ever broadcast on US TV in the 1990s or early 2000s? And possibly what channel?

I remember that it seemed vaguely familiar when I watched for the first time (afaik) a few years ago.

I recently showed an episode to my sister who recognized the OP right away; we both agreed we saw this on TV some time in the past.

I tried googling to see if it was on SyFy's anime block or Toonami but it doesn't seem like it.
I also remember seeing Escaflowne on TV, probably around the same time.

In 2005? yes, before 2005? nope and I remember when you had to have cable TV, like Comcast, to watch the series.

It actually aired on "Anime Network" on cable back then. The original channel that went belly up. It played alongside shows like Moonphase, Kino's Journey, Guin, Aquarion, Nightwalker, Tenjho Tenge and School Rumble.

Thanks for the responses everyone.

It seems really unlikely that my dad would have been paying for a cable package that included the Anime Network back then, unless it was available free for a trial period or something (which I know was the case during the brief period we had Showtime). So now I'm even more mystified.

Maybe this is just a case of the Mandela effect?

At least the mystery of where I saw Escaflowne is solved, that was Fox Kids apparently.
