20 Memories Only '90s Anime Fans Have
Dude, I heard Blockbuster just got a bunch of new box sets in!
Your first exposure to anime was on USA Network.
Home sick from school — or on summer break — your life changed forever with a theme song.
When Cartoon Express shut down, you upgraded to this.
You have really strong opinions on which Tom is the best Tom.
You were overly invested in the soap opera glory of Dragonball Z.
You were completely in love with all of these assholes. Look at their perfect faces.
Hell, one of their names even RHYMES with sex.
None of your friends were into it, so you found new friends.
Where you were introduced to the greatest feud of all time.
An Internet friend told you about this thing called slash fiction.
People on your Geocities fan site treated Neon Genesis Evangelion like the holy grail.
You heard the local music store also sold anime and begged your mom to take you to the mall.
Alas, they didn't have Evangelion but they did have THIS.
You tried to download episodes from a file share site.
But it's how you discovered AMV (Anime Music Videos) featuring series you'd never even heard of.
Suddenly this was your life mission, and that was okay.
Luckily, your best friend's mom's sister had heard about this thing called eBay.
You blew your allowance and/or retail job paycheck on DVD box sets.
But finally, somehow, you get a working copy of Evangelion and binge watched the entire series.
That was it. Anime was... amazing, epic AWESOMENESS.
