"Wow, Straxus* looks great! Nice tank mode, awesome robot mode... oh, but those ANKLES. Hrm, dunno if I'm gunna buy it now or not D:"

*called "Darkmount" on the toy because apparently Hasbro couldn't secure the trademark on Straxus.

I finally discovered this cartoon I saw as a lad based on a VERY vague description of the ending: Unico in the Island of Magic, and that's when I realized it was an anime.

So Jen and I dug around Wikipedia, and were quite surprised to find out how much anime comprised our childhood TV viewing. For example, of the 19 shows listed as "1980s Nickelodeon Cartoons", 6 of them were originally Japanese cartoons (and a good handful of the rest were originally from other countries as well).

Just something to throw out there. I mean, I'm sure a lot of us remember Voltron, Speed Racer, and Robotech, but Noozles? Maple Town? Little Koala? Oh yeah, we became weeaboos far quicker than we'd thought XD
