Wasn't she also the voice of Timmy from Fairly Oddparents?

She also does a voice for one of the characters from The Boondocks, which is hilarious

Yes and yes. Cindy McPhearson in The Boondocks. I was also surprised to learn that she did the voice for Raven in Teen Titans. For some reason I could have sworn that was Grey DeLisle. :-??

My First Contact with Anime happened in the late 1960's. Though HORRIBLY dubbed then, I still enjoyed a lot of them. 1995 was when I was reaquainted with Anime, I.E. "Sailor Moon". Ever since, I've been hooked. B-)

When ITV showed Laputa one Saturday morning, somewhere in the late 80s. I'd never seen anything like it.

Sounds more like the Macross/Robotech series that Tenjen is talking about.

If I try hard I remember the group. Tough woman, hero guy, silly guy, tough guy, little girl, alien princess who's quite mute. One more girl I can't remember I think.

Scene where the princess bleeds due to an injury and they realize she's an alien cause of the blood color with her crying and such,

Once again, I'm pretty sure that's Mospeada. Just watched the series last month. It was the last part of the Robotech series here.

What got me into anime was when i watched Kimba The White Lion oh so long ago it seems like a dream. After that it was Speed Racer. Voltron i watched to but the one that i liked was the one with the, as it was called back then,the Drool Empire. The other one not so much. The there was Robotec and tons of others since then. You might say its been an obsession since i was 8 years old. (or was it 9). See its been so long that i cant remember what age i was. :ymapplause: :-? 8-}

Sometime in 1992, I saw Sailor Moon in the states and I loved it! After my dad saw what I was watching, he introduced me to other series on the Sci Fi channel (Saturday morning anime and their week devoted to awesome anime movies during the summer). Since then, i've been hooked. I'm not as much into anime as I once was (mainly b/c of the quality) but every now and then, i'll look for some of the classics and try to give the new stuff a chance.
Nothing witty here sadly. What I want to put here is too big. :/
