How did you get introduced to Japanese anime?

I was much in the same position, @Imaginos1892. I remember watching Speed Racer every morning before my mom would get me ready for school, that was my ritual. Then, along came Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot, Tranzor Z, Robotech, Ronin Warriors. This was back before I knew what anime was. It wasn't until the mid-80's when I started working and started collecting and watching subtitled anime, which anime wasn't dubbed for anime released on videotapes.To this day, even though I now watch dubbed anime, there are some subtitled anime that I can't stand watching as dubbed. Such as the Gunbuster: Aim for the Top, the original OVA series. I've only ever watched that as a subtitled anime and I still can;t watch the English dubbed version. But it wasn't until I was introduced to the English dubbed version of Oh My Goddess, the original OVA series, that I became addicted to anime and the manga series.
