Great article.

It all started for me when my dad showed me Devil Man, Castle in the Sky and Vampire Hunter D, which he recorded on Channel 4 in the early hours in the morning. Can't imagine anyone will ever find anime this way again though but it is far more popular now.... Thank God Very Happy

I had wondered how people saw Anime in the UK before Cartoon Network and and CNX.

I remember seeing Castle In The Sky on ITV around 1989

I only really became aware of anime as anime with Akira, though I grew up on Battle of the Planets and Ulysses 31; I also rented Warriors of the Wind long before I knew who Miyazaki was.

The following message comes from Carlo Bernhardi (I'm forwarding it on his behalf).

"Thank you all for taking the time to post your thoughts about my personal trip down memory lane, a mostly forgotten time of exploration and discovery, and thank you Andrew N. Osmond for plucking me out of obscurity!

It was way back in 2007 when I first thought that someone should chronicle those early days of the late 80's and early 90's UK Anime & Manga Fandom. After a year or two of procrastination, ok, ok, it was 2013 when I settled on a Blog instead of a website, it was high time that I organise my collection of fan letters and correspondence from Anime Pen-Pals, those early translated Manga that I still had, and boxes of all the paperwork that UK and US Anime distributors had sent me, and what paperwork I still had from the days that I ran my Fan club 'Anime Kyo UK'.

Even after these 18 months or so of cataloguing and blogging I estimate that it will take 4 years to post what I have, so please drop in from time to time to my little museum of the time the Anime Fandom forgot.

If you all could spread the word or offer encouragement, to keep me going that would make my day.

Thanks,
Carlo
