I'm 23, right? So growing up a big part of my early anime exposure came as a result of watching Toonami.

Shows like Sailor Moon, Zatch Bell, DBZ, Inuyasha, and others framed the way that I would take anime in for the rest of my life (so far).
So today I was thinking about how, for the most part, I haven't seen these animes for a while. In remedy of that, I thought I'd write about and re-watch one of my old favorites, Tenchi Muyo!
I'm sure a lot of you have seen Tenchi Muyo. For y'all, hopefully this is a nice stroll through memory lane. For anyone who hasn't, though, hopefully you take this a reason to!
So the show is all about this guy Tenchi Masaki here ^^ who has the benefit of being a decendant of SPACE ROYALTY. Yep. His grandfather basically decided he didn't want to ascend to any kind of leadership in his familial space empire, so he peaced out and found love on Earth.
So we meet Tenchi as a young man of 17, living a quiet and peaceful life. Things are calm in the Masaki household, until an international space pirate shows up, which basically opens the floodgates for a number of extraterrestrial intrusions.
Ultimately, this is what happens. Yeah, Tenchi Muyo really got the harem genre started in anime. The premise here being that Tenchi is an honorable gentleman who prefers family over romantic engagements.
Not that the girls don't still try. Certainly, not every one of them is in love with Tenchi, but the ones who are get considerably combative about it.
The story doesn't stay on Earth, though. Eventually time calls ofr Tenchi to try and do right by his lineage, and so the whole team ventures into space.
I start forgetting many details here, so this is why I definitely need to rewatch. I know there's a lightsaber-esque sword, some cool battles, and lots and lots of harem goodness.
Queue'n it up.
Damn right now I'm rewatching yu yu hakusho lol which was one of my favorite animes on toonami haha
@Ashenwing159 yes! I love using Kissanime!
If anyone is looking for a good site to watch anime on, try Kissanime. It has Loads of anime in sub and dub. And for those of you who read Manga, there's Kissmanga too. It updates with the newest episodes of an anime roughly one to two days after it airs on television and it has a countdown to the next episode, which is accurate about 90% of the time. Anyways, I've found TONS of the animes I've watched on this site.
@Reoko that's what I'm doing xD
i loved this anime... im 29 and plan on getting many of the animes and shows i grew up on for my daughter who is 2. she already loves sailor moon and fushigi yugi and fruits basket
