Hopefully this format will make things a little clearer in terms of what shows were ending and what shows began in this year. Not to mention what shows continued to be the kings of anime.
Of the five that continued through 92 from 91, three are still going today (Sazae-san, Doraemon, Anpanman).
Unlike 1991, there’s some big things happening in 1992.
We had some big shows ending – Ranma, Oishinbo, Yawara all wrapped up.
There was one HUGE shows starting, namely Crayon Shin-chan.
There was also some other shows starting that would turn out to be big hits – Sailor Moon, Yu Yu Hakusho
There were some shows that (eventually) made their way into English via legitimate means – Sailor Moon, Yu Yu Hakusho, Tekkaman Blade as Teknoman
But apart from the Magical Girl and Robot shows (and Cooking Papa!) on the list, everything else was fairly new to me. Some were positively obscure - Chikyu SOS Soreike Kororin was an NHK environmental cartoon for which I had to get the screenshot from a grainy nicovideo clip, the image for Sasurai-kun is of the manga as I could find no image of the anime and a show like Get a Grip, Tsuyoshi! that ran for over 100 episodes has no english wiki page (though a licensed puzzle game for it does).
And finally, there was a rare pre-1996 late night anime in the form of Super Zugan.
I’ll writing similar posts to the 1991 posts on individual shows, and then I may return to this post to revise these comments.
