I remember before I even knew what it was I had gotten the full set of Sailor Moon adventure dolls for Christmas. Some years later saw a random episode on a random channel, but didn’t fully get into it till it went on Toonami. Still big fan of the series now.
My all time favorite anime is Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Tenchi Universe (and Muyo!), Negima!, Shuffle!, Baka and Test, All Purpose All Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku, Ranma 1/2, Sailor Moon, OH! almost forgot Ah! My Goddess!
