1st one that I can actually remember was Dragon Quest: Legend of the Hero Abel.
I used to get up super early to watch it at 6am during the whole "Saturday Morning Cartoons" era.
Dragon Quest had an anime? And it was released in America?
Wow, I'm impressed.
Star Blazers in the early 80s. Still one of my favorite shows.
Have you ever checked out Space Battleship Yamato 2199? (Also known as "Starblazers 2199," if you're interested in paying out the wazzoo for the DVD volumes) That has to be the best modernized update of a classic I've seen in ages.
