The Dragon Ball Zed/Zee thing would tear apart our school! I just referred to it as Dragon Ball, since that was always the Japanese name.

Pokemon for a bit, yeah, but if I'm honest, I had no friends for my first year in Australia and these two guys who included me were right into Pokemon, so I got into it as a way to belong, really. Went to a different high school to them and pretty much lost interest straight away.

So, yeah, I know very little of this stuff, but Digimon just struck me as a lame-arse Pokemon ripoff. For all I know, maybe it was first or something. But that's how I perceived it.

He also did the artwork for the old school Nintendo game, that I fell in love with at the age of 5, Dragon Warrior (Or Quest, depending.) IV.

I still have that game. And a proper working Nintendo to play it.

Simple solution: 'Zee' is Dutch for 'sea', not a fuckin' letter!

That 'cause it was a lame Pokemon rip off.

Fair enough. Probably around high school people lost interest in it, anyway.

If I'm not mistaken, Pokemon and Digimon both were invented around a similar time, but in different parts of Japan. It's not that ridiculous of a coincidence if you knew what the Japanese were digging at that time. They weren't exactly similar, but since Digimon had the 'mon' at the end of its name, people bullshitted it immediately.

Never got into anything after that, though. Yu-gi-oh, what the hell. I got into U2 instead, then.

I was still about 13 or 14 at the particular time, if memory serves. All my friends were into it, so I got into it. But it didn't even last. I used to draw from the cards but that was about it.

Eh, in grade eight there were some people interested in it, but they weren't people I hung out with. My friends wanted to leech my copy of Age Of Empires and shit.

Ah, OK. And I never knew what the fuck Yu-Gi-Oh is beyond hearing its name.
