I can alrready understand enough to watch some anime raw, I would probably learn enough so I could watch the rest. Idk what I'd do about manga though, I guess I could learn how to read Japanese if I'm already learning how to speak it.

If there's no dubbing or subbing, fansubs, then chances are there won't be REAL access to RAWs except importation which is pretty damn expensive. So I'd probably just give up on it. Plenty of good shows I'd like to catch up on, and I am a real MOVIE nerd. So I'd just start binge watching movies like I do with anime and then switch it up with TV shows, and SOME cartoons (although I can't name 10 I even like made in America, except a few classics which don't have linear story lines, and some of the superhero shows I haven't watched).
"If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine"
When the union's inspiration through the workers' blood shall run
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong
