Well, we didn't have no internet, but man I never will forget the night-anime on german MTV.
Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne, Lupin III, Inuyasha, and on VIVA we had X1999, Aika, Najica. I think there was a rerun of Digimon 1 on Tele5 around this time.
I pretty much watched everything available, for obvious reasons.

ADV used to do lots of unique and interesting packaging for stuff and had lots of extras on the discs. What I've seen from Sentai has been bare-bones and generic in its presentation.
And Sentai's dubs have been consistently horrible. At least ADV managed to make SOME that were passable.
And the only thing I can think of from CPM at all is the original three Slayers seasons. Which I got in box sets for just under 30 bucks each. Which is a whole lot better than Funi's releases, which have been asking 35-40 and up for just 13 episodes.

Why go full retard when you could have installed Win2K? That shit was solid as a rock, no memory leaks, and ran XP drivers so video drivers were still fine.

I had a pared down install at one point that booted at 52mb RAM usage with full functionality. And my record uptime was something like 4 months -- nothing amazing and would have been longer had I not needed to install some new hardware. But compared to 98/ME that would bluescreen every 2 days, it was glorious.

Oh, packaging. Yea the boom year sets were great. I have their Chevlier d'Eon box and I think it's the best non-Aniplex/NISA set in my collection.

On the topic of Sentai dubs, Steven Foster quit so their dubs should improve. I read an interview with him and it's full of so much spite and resentment towards anime and the fandom.

You technically couldn't since subbing back then was a +7 day affair for a decent group. It was mindblowing when a.f.k. did 48 hour turn arounds on Haruhi in '06.

Semantics aside, I did watch a bit of Tsukihime and Mermaid Melody when they were getting subbed. And Da Capo. But fuck that show.

I was watching Kimi ga nozomu eien, thought it was just your average romance anime and then episode 2 or 3 hit and everything changed. I was very moved by it back then, but now it seems kind of lame. The opening theme is very good and I still listen to it from time to time.

I was in 6th grade at the time, so I remember hyping it with my friends. We discussed the new episodes every day as they aired during lunch.

Later on, I imported the Naruto GC game (GNT4) and spent my entire middle school life playing that every weekend at my cousin's house.

Back on topic, I guess I watched a lot of Yu-Gi-Oh! at that time. I still don't think the dub is that bad; it's just shit.

This thread made me realise there are people on /a/ who experienced entirely different anime and internet culture than us

Being in 20s in '90s must really be cool

Group TAC isn't around either, though. I don't think I could sit through Girugamesh again.

Personally, I think Madlax was worse than Avenger. If nothing else, Avenger did have a unique atmosphere about it. I was interested in the story even though they didn't exactly bother to say what was going on.

Hellsing.
I remember being really young and watching this since my dad burned some DVDs of it, all I remembered from it was the cash intro music and Seras licking a lot of blood which arroused me and confused me since I really didn't know that feeling well being young and all.

Generator Gawl.
Saw it in the bargain bin at my local Hollywood Video and thought the cover looked cool. I don't think I even knew what anime was then. I don't think people even remember that show.
It was simpler times.

The intro was great. Anime, not so much.

>thought the cover looked cool
This is how my friend rented Legend of Black Heaven. Actual content was radically different, but awesome nonetheless.

Don't even act like this wasn't 10/10

He didn't stick around for long. Rest of the cast was fucking great.

Also Une was so good. Kick a guy out of a plane and then shoot him in the head for good measure.

The worst part is that we're only a few centuries away from solving aging. If you were born then, you could watch anime forever, be NEET forever, have a perpetual backlog, etc.

Is Samurai Jack considered an anime?

Lifespans will increase but it's pretty likely that we missed out on never aging and dying.

I had a 40+ hour a week job back then.
Arrived in PA from Cali, staring from scratch.
So, lots of NFL.
At that point in my life, I thot anime died out w/ Space Battleship Yamato, and thot Pokemon was some Saturday- morning US marketing scam 4 kids.
Online poker finally dried up in 2011, then my world changed...slightly. After trolling several episodes of The Booth at the End, I accidentally discovered Raildex. Same thing happened w/ Toonami after watching Squidbillies and Aqua Teen one night. Then they temp-banned me once from 2+2[it's a poker forum], I got bored, and found u guyz by accident.
Ya know what?
Fuck Naruto and Bleach. I miss Speed Racer, dammit.

Speed racer was the hypest shit.

You have failed us, oldanon

I didn't get into anime until about 2007, and then really get into it until 2010.

I was 12 in 03 so I suppose I would have maybe watched the odd Pokemon or Yugioh ep, although I think I was past that then and I just played Fifa.

I always missed that show, literally in 2003, was put on the late Midnight-start shift and by the time it was over I was back home.
>>
>>114550852
at pre 2000's I still feel, like I just watched Attack no 1, on a dutch channel and I couldn't understand shit.
Fuck, living in a commie state is not the best thing if you want to watch animu on TV.

Yomiko my waifu

I think it was .Hack//sign or Dragonball GT maybe.

>>114538566
One piece i guess
or some other anime on axn
>>
>>114538566
At the beginning of the year, I watched Love Hina which made me want to puke. At least the music was enjoyable and the manga was at least 10 times better.

Later during the same year, I was watching Azumanga Daioh.
I never watched a slice of life/comedy as good as this and nothing to this day came close to it.
>>
I dropped Last Exile at the 7th episode, should I continue?
>>
>>114551096
No, proceed to death.
>>
>>114542854
I'm not gonna lie, thought that was muv-luv for a split 2 seconds.

Felt the same way.
>>
>>114547567
Fucking Fox Kids plus national channels played a big role in popularizing anime back then.

I needed to laugh, thanks.
