I saw Akira 15 years ago and didn't like it then I get Cheesy dubbing most of the Gundam (0080, 0083 series) I saw back then were Fan-subs so production quality was real spotty and I enjoyed those; Akira is just shit.

I've been a Fan of Robotech for 20+ years I know it's cheesy but I fell in love with it as a child.
