My dad let me watch Kiki's Delivery Service at some point when I was a wee lad, thought I didn't actually learn what anime was until I was 12. The first anime I watched that I knew was "anime" was Minami-Ke or something, I think.
it was an anime on sci fi, or whatever they called it back then.. they haven't introduced it on cartoon network yet, but they showed some late night crazy animes every now and then i think on tuesdays? i don't remember what it was called but there was some crazy scientist doing some crazy experiments in a laboratory. we(me and my dad) didn't watch much of it. i watched a little bit of anime on sci fi...then they started showing the first part of dbz on cartoon network and i started buying vhs copies of slayers at a movie store. i also had a magazine that would come once a month and have a list of animes i could choose from they would send me in the mail for a subscription. most of the vhs movies i had came from there except for akira and armitage the third. pretty sure i found those at suncoast...as well as slayers. think i was about.. 8 or 9 when i started watching them on the sci fi channel. in 7th grade maybe 6th when they started playing dbz on cartoon network. anyone know when they started dbz on cartoon network? i graduated 8th grade in 2000. i got tired of dbz when they went to namek. i got tired of the filler episodes and cheesy over-exaggeration as well as the 6+ episode long fights that were complete waste of time and money. a friend of mine kept watching it afterwards and i got to see trunks come back from the future and heard about vegeta and bulma and i was like /facepalm, this is almost as bad as family guy. they should get some manatees to do their work for them or something. (hope someone here gets that reference). fucking level caps...smh
