    you guys forgot how at one time toonami ran on wb and then if you caught it at the right time, tom went into lightspeed to leave the wb planet orbit, and within minutes if you changed the channel he showed on cartoon network from his hyperspace journey

    Or the creator of sailor Moon seen the writing on the wall and yanked before sjws could damage the franchise.
    Such by turning Usgia into some sort of anti-male person or whatever other trash that scumbags like sjws like to do.
    To be honest not a fan of Sailor Moon due to my sister's always hogging the TV.
    Dragonball just recycles everything. You seen one season you seen them all.
    No, I won't change my mind in DB so don't bother trying.
    Gundam wing, I can't stand indestructible Mecha like Wing was which could only be destroyed by being blown up by it's pilot.
    Also robots that could only be piloted by super duper ultra mega god like children, story is also just rehashed over and over again.
    I just wish we got Macross.

    My only gripe with this, is The Critic is a millennial himself. Albeit right at the start of the generation. Where the end of it would be 1996. Just makes me chuckle.

    I really dislike that annoying and fat feminist host, she can't help but push her stupid politics. Such an insufferable SJW.
    And she claimed DBZ was "monster of the week"? What a fucking idiot.

    What do you want Nostalgia Critic to do next: Kids WB or the early years of Adult Swim?

  • Theonetruewonderfly

    Surprised to hear Doug say he was "too old" for Toonami. He said he was the perfect age for Fox Kids in the early 90's (in the "Fox Kids" video), I guess he was all "grown up" by the late 90's. Meanwhile, I'm around 5 years old than Doug, and I watched Toonami all the time. In 1997, my friends and I were watching Toonami in our college dorm rooms, mostly for the nostalgia fix of seeing Thundercats and Voltron on TV again, for the first time since the 80's. Then as 1998 and 1999 carried on, along came the anime craze that swept the nation and Toonami was the focal point for "action" anime (definitely in 2000 and 2001)...until Adult Swim carried it one step further in the early 00's. But I enjoyed even a more "kidified" Toonami (with He-Man and Zoids and Teen Titans). I guess I just never considered myself "too old" for Toonami.

    Wait, they....they didn't start with Thundercats and Voltron...*tears of sadness*
