haha yeah i was in 6th grade i think when i was really into sailor moon & had only a set amount of tv time a week. i (really my mom) would record each week's episodes & id watch them all on sunday afternoons using almost my entire weeks worth of alloted tv time

i could never get into dbz the way so many of my friends/peers seemed to: at the very least every episode of sailor moon something happened & dragon ball z was just so tedious so often. & i liked the mythology of sailor moon more the secret identities & romances & lost civilizations...

also i have to say queen beryl's throne is legit rad even if all she ever did was wave her hands around

pokemon was the worst show honestly... fukken ash ketchum. always leaving the most powerful pokemon just lying around... "ill be back for you later"? ugh your supposed to catch them all you idiot

dbz blew my mind because dragonball was airing for a year or two before dbz popped up in syndication, and so it was like... suddenly here's the grown-up gritty version of this lil nigga whose adventures i was followin not long ago... dbz was like crack to me from 11-12 even though every episode was just 20 minutes of guys grunting and raising their power levels... i'd go online and read synopses of the manga & later seasons of the show... this was before CN picked it up so i was like captivated by how there were 900 more eps of this show that i'd never see because these vapid americans cant respect this animated artform of the glorious japanese empire

once i was 13 though i'd basically already outgrown it

my friends were still into it though and i'd sneer and be like pfft dbz's just an adolescent power fantasy *returns to reading superhero comics*

the multigenerational aspect of dbz was fascinating to me - even heroes get old and die!

haha the familial aspect of dbz was something that turned me off tbh, i loved that the sailor scouts essentially existed independent of their 30th century parents although chibi moon ugh

the whole mythology behind dbz was too convoluted & alien for me i think i needed the familiarity of the sailor scout's normal lives & identities. also the whole dbz thing seemed so pointless dudes were destroying fukken planets & it all seemed liked the most boring party imaginable

by the time i was 13 i was in high school & into 'serious' anime like evangelion & slayers (lol) & didnt care about either of these but i almost regret now watching the s series or any of the later sailor moon runs.

haha slayers... shoulderpads and megumi hayashibara, they dont make em like that anymore~

evangelion & ~escaflowne~ were my jams from like 13-15... cowboy bebop too but at the same time not so much

the sailor scouts secret identities (and HS drama) were deffo a big part of the appeal... plus the interplay between all the scouts' personalities was great... its all coming back to me now!!!

but i never got into these nearly as much as i was into NGE

yeah nge was def ~the jam~ 4 me although even there i really liked the smaller quotidian details early in the series - him going to school & chilling at misato's place, the logistics of their lives together~~~

i think i always really value series/books that both allow you to insert yourself into & spend time filling in the margins. with dbz the world was too lonely & alien just these empty grasslands and ice caps & the occasional time traveller or w/e. felt like there was 12 ppl in the entire world

nge is tailor-made for those angsty early teen years... its like the black flag of anime (idk)

definitely - eva was great at the lil quiet moments, though a lot of that was just a budget thing - it worked for them tho, like misato walking barefoot down the street on a summer night w/kaji, having taken off her heeled shoes and letting them dangle from a couple fingers - that relationship felt so ~grown up~ to me

kinda otm about lonely & alien dbz universe, which is why dragonball is way better to me, it just feels like more of a lived-in world instead of a blank setting for massive battles
