Hi everybody!

I was born in 1982 in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. I had the luck to grow up with anime series cause we could watch Italian networks which, as you know, have been with French ones the biggest western anime importers. Memories of those series are so important to me cause they were with me during my whole childhood. I still have memories of afternoons trying to fix damn' antennas to get a better image or crying when networks suddenly stopped a series I loved.
Growing up I started to collect vintage Japanese toys from those series (die-cast, dolls and vinyl toys by Popy/Bandai, Takatoku and more) and I quickly fell on the discover of cels. I just thought it was amazing to have the chance to own drownings which were used to make the series; not copies of them but precisely the ones millions of kids watched every day, the ones I watched when I was little. I immediately felt the magic of that.
I collect cels belonging to any series I liked when I was little. I honestly don't mind if some of them are not animation masterpieces; they have such an important memory value, and that's the only thing that cares to me.
It's a very tiny collection but it makes me feel better every time I look at it or when a friend of mine sees it and says something like "Gosh! I loved that series!" or "I perfectly remember that episode!". If you guys will feel even a little bit like that too looking at my cels, well, it means I haven't created that page for anything. ^_^
Any commentary and advice is always welcome!

PS: of course some of the series there come from the 70's (or earlier) but to me they all belong to the 80's context, a decade where those colorful images coming from fat convex TVs helped us to grow up happier. That's why I chose this title.
