I do recall seeing ninja scroll and akira really early in my life, regardless of the MAJOR adult content, but unsure if that was before or after pokemon.
Guyver, Samurai pizza cats, voltron, dragon ball z, card captor sakura, sailor moon, ranma 1/2 and gundam wing, outlaw star are all honorable mentions as those were "this is anime!" Moments in my tweens...
I'm old v.v
I recommend all of the above, very highly
