    Speed Racer on MTV and Bio-Boosted Armor Guyver on VHS. I also liked Ninja Robots and G-Force on Cartoon Network, and I do remember the Night of the Vampire Robots, and anything Syfy showed on Saturday Anime.

    Pokémon and Sailor Moon were my gateway anime (if my icon is any indication.) Now my most favourite anime is Jojo and Madoka.

    I started watching Pokemon. Then I went to Yu-Gi-Oh and Dragon Ball Z. I am going to watch Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

    My first exposure to the anime style was Nick Jr.'s original line-up. Mostly forgettable anime aimed at small children that were either dubbed by Saban or *shudder* the Weinstein brothers. Titles like "The Koala Show", "Noozles", "The Little bits", etc. Not long after that, I discovered tapes of Voltron episodes at my local video store.

    It wasn't until the advent of Cartoon Network that I had a name and a country to pin to this animation style. In their first year, CN held this special weekend marathon of 3 anime movies called "Night of the Vampire Robots". The movies they showed were "Vampire Hunter D", "Robot Carnival", and "Twilight of the Cockroaches". A year or so after that came Toonami, and the rest is history.

    I wasn't even aware that Voltron was an Anime until many years later, but the first one that I can remember watching was the English dub of Speed Racer. I remember my dad putting on MTV in the before school and watching it while I was eating breakfast. Later on it continued with Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, and some others which escape my mind.
