ferociousj asked: I wanted to bring this up at the last meeting: you and I had two of the three same foundational anime experiences (Akira, Fist of the North Star), but did you ever catch the old Appleseed OVA in its original, INCREDIBLY-foulmouthed-for-no-reason English dub? That was my third; didn't see Ninja Scroll 'til some time later.
I’m sure I’ve seen it, but I would’ve been a kid, so I don’t remember. My main Shirow anime as a kid was Dominion Tank Police, and as I grew up, I got more into the comics than people adapting his work.
This is an interesting thing, because there’s just a generation where exposure to anime was pretty limited and often in the form of some really bad or questionable dubs or TV edits. The sci-fi channel had these really sporadic and inexplicably chosen anime that were often pretty disappointing but occasionally were pretty rad. But because there was no real schedule, you’d usually start halfway into one (that’s how I first saw Iria).
Aside from catching Sailor Moon or Pokemon when they were on Fox Kids, I think these were the first three I saw:
With an honorable mention for Ronin Warriors, which I watched on the sci-fi channel early mornings before school.

Also, these guys are good live and I had seen them TWICE and still didn’t remember this song :v
Yeah, I’ve had them come up on Pandora before and they’ve been kind of hit or miss, but when they hit, I dig them a lot.
