    That's how it starts as a premise. As it continues you see things change and how silly it gets. (not in a bad way either)

    I recently just got back into anime after a loooong break. The Ghost in the Shell: Arise was surprisingly good and it looked amazing. The Rebuild of Evangelion blew my mind. I'm enjoying this new version and the animation is incredible.

    If anyone can offer up some awesome cyberpunk series or movies I would be eternally grateful.

    Digimon is, even in the technical sense, an anime since it's origin is from Japan. I'd say I grew up around the same time Pinsir did. Back when the local channels started airing DBZ in the afternoons. Then they started popping up on Saturday morning cartoons and from there became prominent during the Adult Swim era when they aired late night anime like the original Gundam series.

    Makes sense. But, I feel so old now.

    When I was a kid... my mom bought a VHS fan-rip of the Macross movie, Do You Remember Love. It was all cartoons (it is all cartoons), but we tended to be aware whether something was homegrown or foreign-born (or just had its character designs and animation done abroad).

    I think, in the US, there must have been two or three separate anime "booms," the times when it jumped to consciousness (usually marked by an explosion in "the dangers of pervy cartoons of blood!" news reports). Each boom had a corresponding generation of kids being introduced to the difference, as it were.

    I remember the original Gundam series airing in the afternoon on toonami first before it went to midnight with 08th ms team and stardust memory.

    Those were the days, I miss Ronin Warriors.

    Did Toonami exist before Adult Swim? I didn't start watching Cartoon Network until those programs had been around for atleast a year or so.

    Yea, what t hedge coke said.

    They used to air Thundercats, Robotech (US butchery of Macross) and some others. I know Sailormoon, Ronin Warriors, Dragonball, DBZ, etc... came later.

    The original Toonami kickstarted my love for anime, introducing me to the likes of Sailor Moon, Gundam Wing and Tenchi Muyo!, shows I currently have in my collection which is quite large while I stream more anime these days than I watch on those shiny little discs.

    oooooo, you missed out on the Sci-Fi channel early years of Anime, before they had to cut it off for a good while and come back with the crap they gave later.

    Can you recommend any good streaming sites? I've been out of the loop for a few years and there's a few series I might want to casually watch. Hulu and Crunchyroll are the only two I can remember at the moment, but I don't know how deep their library is.

    Ya, I think I caught that second run of anime on Sy Fy..been awhile so I don't remember. At that point I had already slowed down on my anime watching.

    Well, I subscribe to both services, and their libraries are considerably large, offering shows in just about every genre imaginable. Now, it should be noted that Crunchyroll (my favorite of the two) only offers subbed anime while Hulu does have some dubbed shows, but the selection is very small. If that's no problem for you, then I recommend both sites, even though Hulu shows commercials, even with their paid membership. Netflix also shows anime, though not quite as much as Hulu and Crunchyroll. I hope this information helps.

    Yes, that is helpful, thanks. I prefer subbed actually, so it's not a problem for me. Seems lame that Hulu still shows commercials on a paid membership. The one show I had previously looked up was Tiger & Bunny, which Hulu had and Crunchyroll didn't.

    My three favourite animes are:
    - Cowboy BeBop
    - El-Hazard: the Magnificence Kingdom
    - Noir

    Does anyone know why El-Hazard isn't available on DVD in the UK?
