Memory of an awesome TV Moment

Some things in our past stay with us at the back of our heads and don't surface until something triggers it.

When I was talking to the dark knight, I thought that the first anime I saw was Dragonball, then I remembered something even earlier – Tenchimuyo, then I thought again and remembered that it was actually the OAV of Record of Lodoss War. I must have been 10 years old then, so the entire theme of war was just too complicated for me to comprehend and the dubbing merely contributed to my confusion (fansubs are your best friend; never trust dubbing). I can't remember the story but the one thing I took away from it was the image of a badly injured Parn holding an unconcious Deelit in his arms against a burning background.

I was ten years' old. That picture just blew me away.

    the picture is something like this one, isnt it…


    haha… I loved RoLW… I remember playing the intro and end themes endlessly on the piano…

    (hey… you forgot your 美少女战士 ! I liked the SuperS Movie with the meteor-diamond-rose-thing-exploded )

  2. My word… that is what I remembered…
    How very very bizarre o_O; I wish my memory for mathematical proofs is as precise :p

    And naw, SM ranks forth – after Dad smuggled VHS tapes of it from HK. And manga wise, SM is (suprise suprise) only first runner up after DB :-)

    I still have great respect for SM. I think it is good exercise to constantly test how much suspension of disbelief we are willing to accept ^^;
