Tastes are tastes. I don't dislike Evangelion, but I loved Saint Seya. I was waking up at 6 o'clock in the morning just to be able to watch it (back when I was a wee girl). I loved it because it had naked male boys one of the most touching friendship stories ever on a cartoon. And it's concept was just awesomely cool (don't forget this was made in the beguinning of the 80's). And other than the Phoenix, no one dies and rebirths?

Comparing it to Power Rangers is like comparing Indian Jones to National Treasure... Come on, I do have you in better consideration than that

Re: How to annoy a nerd

Let me make this perfectly clear:

THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT SHOULD HAVE SURVIDED 80'S JAPANESE CARTOONS.

ROBOTECH !!!
I actually did some sketches of these (inspired by) when I was a kid.
Not that I am much of an artist...but I had to channel my ideas somewhere.
Lemme see if I can find them for y'all to laugh at.

+1 to you there as well.
I liked both. Robotech and Voltron.

But I think Voltron was a bit older than robotech...oder ?
And I believe they were one of the first ones to go mainstream outside Japan.

Re: How to annoy a nerd

Don't know Robotech. Voltron, I'm afraid, was too boyish even for me We had Battle of the Planets at the time Voltron was on TV, and I believe the most boyish thing I enjoyed at the time (couple of years later I had He-Man and Transformers for my viewing pleasure though ).

There was also something about guys ridding steam punk style metal horses (one of them was a pink girl, the other had a swiss cross). Don't know what that was anymore, but I remember I also found it nice ^^

Ah to be a child again!

I think it's time for Muppet Show marathon!

Let me just say you missed something truly special.

Music in my head just switched to Robotech theme.

Note to self : Look for dvd's for Voltron and Robotech...

Re: How to annoy a nerd

oddly, I don't remember Robotech either.....I've got a few VCRs full of saturday morning cartoons (never got to watch them myself, Saturday morning were 'German School' for my entire childhood), I will have to go through them for a little nostalgia

Another series which I used to love...

Phantom : 2040

I was not really a big fan of the original, but this maybe had more appeal due to the sci-fi angle.

Not familiary with that one either--although it does seem to be a bit after my time.

Luke Skywalker was in it though, perhaps I should check it out

Oh come on now.
We can talk about stuff that is slightly less nerdy as well.

Say...I don't know...G.I.JOE ?
