Childhood memories (Part 1: Girls Anime)

I was talking with angelalia and somehow I ended up looking for an old anime opening to show her...
And now I've been transported down memory-lane, remembering all the silly anime I used to watch as a kid and the retarded italian openings we had.

I've got to share some of these gems with you, so not only you'll see what kind of child I was, but also so you can behold the italian power to totally butcher anime names and theme songs. XD

It was hard to pick just a few... so I have to cut it into different posts.
Tonight you get the first part.
Following should be Sport Anime and Magic Anime :P

This was one of my favorite anime. It was hilarious!
Italian title was 'C'era una volta Pollon' which translates to 'Once upon a time there was Pollon..'(better knows as Pollon combinaguai= Pollon the troublemaker).
It was the story of Pollon, daughter of the roman god Apollo and granddaughter of Zeus (yeah, they mixed greek and roman names), who spent her days in the Olympe making trouble for all the other gods with her best friend, Eros (who was an absolute retard). This girl was my hero XD

This was the coolest opening we had in italian. The story followed Jem, the lead-singer of a female rock-band.
It was badass for us kids, yo! XD

Lady Oscar
Oh, Lady Oscar. Italian translation of 'Versailles no bara', which was the story of this girl, living in France during the reign of Louis XVIII and Marie Antoinette, who was raised as a boy by her father and became the chief of the Queen's guards.
Sad ending, she dies during the Storming of the Bastille fighting on the side of the low class.

Listening to the italian opening is worthy it just to hear the singer near-orgasm eveytime she pronounces Oscar's name in the chorus XD

Occhi di gatto (Cat's Eyes)
Anime by Tsukasa Hojo, better known maybe for City Hunter.
It's the story of 3 sisters who run a bar by day and work as antics' thieves by night. Typically, the detective pursuing them is one of the sisters' boyfriend.
These 3 girls shaped my childhood... I played impersonating them with my friends countless times, fighting everytime over which sister we'd get to be XD

And I'll end it here for tonight... this took a long-ass time! And it's LONG! XD
