The Caliph Stork with Latin subtitles:
There are a few mistakes*, but overall it's pretty good.

*Exclamatory quam keeps being used with the accusative where one would expect the nominative, probably because the translator got confused with the exclamatory accusative (which is used without quam). At 5:18-30 sibi doesn't make sense; it seems to be misused for tibi (I think this mistake is brought about by a feature of Slavic languages, where there's a single reflexive for all persons, right? Godmy explained something along these lines once). When the sorcerer counts unus, duo, tres, I think it should be in the neuter, unum, duo, tria, because he doesn't seem to be counting any specific masculine things.

No, definitely not the only one. Though I'm no longer so much into it right now, there was a period when I was around 18-20 years old when I watched a lot of anime.

Japanese anime Elfen Lied - the opening song has latin lyrics.
One of those classic Shonen-jump-style manga/anime which doesn't hesitate to draw breasts without nipples, like Love Hina or Outlaw Star.
