Heck, I grew up on dubs like Speed Racer, Star
Blazers, Battle of the Planets, Captain Harlock
and the Queen of a Thousand Years... by the time
I got to college and Robotech hit the American
airwaves, I was already well addicted to anime.
Now that I'm older still, and the "little things"
like college loans, house down payment, car,
wedding, and furniture are long taken care of, I
have some extra cash to indulge my taste for
anime DVDs and cels.
Of course, the fact that we both live almost
entirely in jeans and free game-company t-shirts
(the unofficial dress code of the videogame
industry -- gotta love those tchatchkies!), cook
most of our meals from scratch (ever so much
cheaper than buying pre-made or eating out), and
hate shopping with a passion may have something
to do with WHY there's extra money... *grin*
