So you never lived the onslaught of giant robot animes that were produced in the 70s? Legends like Mazinger Z and Great Mazinger, Jeeg, Grendizer, Gundam, Daitarn, Zambot, and so on, and so on? Man, I really pity you... I was a kid when those aired here (circa 1978) and I remember to be literally blown away by the overload of awesome those animes had. Think the impact Gurren Lagann had on /a/, only a hundred times bigger.
