i loved pokemon as a kid. until my parents banned me from it for reasons like this. it then happened with every other cool cartoon i watched. digimon, cardcaptors, yugioh... everything.
thankfully, now i can watch basically anything, including (*gasp*) pokemon. but i cant be stuffed bothering with it now.
but this thing has left me with a strange liking for the anime style. its probably *because* i was banned from it so much. ive never really read/watched any anime, but find the style somewhat appealing. *shrug*. Stolen water is sweet, i suppose. (even after you don't have to steal it)
