I really enjoy rewatching the Soul Eater anime on Toonami ‘cause I like to imagine how I, as a burgeoning child otaku at the start of the new millennium, would’ve reacted to a show like this, had it aired during Toonami’s original run.
Would I have been just as obsessed with this show as I was with Dragon Ball Z back in the day or with Fullmetal Alchemist when it first started airing on Adult Swim? Would I have recorded each new episode on VHS tape and rewatched it repeatedly throughout the week as I awaited the NEXT new episode, like I did with DBZ? (Still have those videotapes, by the way) Would I have made multiple trips to the bookstore every week just to browse the magazine section and see if Anime Insider had an article on it, just so that I could read up more on my new favorite show?
…Hmm. I dunno. Things to think about, I guess.
