Tatsunoko is probably one of the most important names in Anime. I shudder to think of an Otaku’s world without them. While we may have still ended up with Super Sentai without Kagaku Ninja Tai Gatchaman, but we would all have been the lesser for their absence. Speed Racer, my first favorite cartoon as a child, Casshan and so much more, Tatsunoko is one of the pillars of anime. If you have an hour and a half to spend, watch the opening and closing sequences of each Tatsunoko production from 1965 through 1983.
