I grow up watching anime on television since I was a little boy. 90's and early 2000's was the golden era of anime in Philippine TV, during this time we even got a primetime slot after newscast of anime dose. I remember that from mornings to afternoons, networks showed your favorite anime, which include Zoids, Dragon Balls, Master of Mosquiton, Monster Rancher, Lupin III and many others. After school going traits home was a daily routine for me just to be able to watch afternoon anime.

What really stack into my mind was the opening and ending sequence of every anime. While playing the song it excites you, as it meant another episode is ready.
