This is r0BSCENE-Pie with r0BSCENE-Pie in the sky.
So, Dragon Ball Z way back before it even aired on Toonami and was on actual broadcast television. Y'know, back in the day when there were actual Saturday morning cartoons? But I lost it when that show came out. I was out buying figures, untranslated manga, dressing up like characters for Halloween, imported the fighting game for my Super Nintendo. Yup, it was that long ago. To this day, you can still see its influences in my drawing style.
Ah to be an early teen again.

I'm Eric, I'm 30, and frankly my memory is fuzzy. There were a lot of shows I watched back in the mid-late 90's when I started to understand what anime was, but I can remember watching stuff like Harmony Gold's Dragonball and Voltron as far back as the late 80's. If I had to point out the one show that really made me an otaku, it would have to be Gundam Wing. Once I discovered mecha, there was just no going back.

The anime that first got me into it was Naruto and i was a senior in high school (I'm 24 now). I use to just play sports year round, too bad I didn't get into anime sooner :( nerd > jock
