    Default How did you get into anime ?

    How did you get into anime and what was the first anime you watched (knowing that it was anime)

    I got into it at the age of 12 when my cousin was watching naruto and I was like ow that's really cool, what is it?
    and everything else followed XD

    Naruto was my first anime (even tho I had watched pokemon and stuff before but I didn't know it was anime at the time )
    Made by the fantabulous Neshi-chwaan (Nesh)

    I was way too young to know,
    but some of the first I have seen were, Haidi, anime sanjushi, ribon no kishi, legend of galactic heroes, and some other very old stuff
    I only knew that anime were Japanese at the time the first episodes of neon genesis evangelion came to life in later 90s (and I was a grown up)

    I first started watching anime that aired on TV when I was 5-6 years old, or at least that's the time I remember watching Dragon Ball, Digimon, Pokemon. I can't tell if these animes are consecutively right, but the earliest recolections are of exactly these three animes. Over the years there have been less and less episodes showned on TV, so for a couple of years I was unable to frequently watch animes. So I guess the opportunity to watch stagneted for a certain time, untill I was thirteen and me and my brother got back on track at watching anime on-line.

    My first anime Was Kiki's Delivery Service. I saw it when I was 6 and visiting my great grandmother. So somewhere in the mid 90's and it has been with me ever since. 22 years now I have been watching anime.

    My first experience with anime was watching my stepsister watch this show ,which I still haven't found, and I was so amazed by the characters handled situations and the fights were BA and then my step brother was watching Naurto and I watched the whole first season with him I was unaware that it was anime at the time and was at a loss until I started watching naurto shippuden and researching more episodes that's when I really started to watch anime now I'm hooked and can't ( or won't ) ;P stop

    I get to watch anime at the age of 5 and up on the tv. ^_^ I used to watch Doraemon, Slam Dunk, Dragonball, One Piece & detective conan and many more. By the time i was 12(the time i joined this forum) i got hooked on Shaman King. SK was really the first anime that i loved, and because i didn't get to see some episodes on the tv, i went to the anime online. And followed after One Piece which i started to watch from episode 1. )) And later on, i got to watch more anime online...So yeah, that's how.

    I mistook Kagome from Inuyasha for Sailor Jupiter with black hair...

    When I found out it was Inuyasha I watched it on Adult Swim only... Would wake up, watch it, and then sleep. But then I just started watching FMA which aired after it and so forth. It took off from there.

    I just grew up with it. As a child I'd watch many cartoons on TV, and often I'd come across anime. Like after watching Cartoon Network, Toonami would pop up.

    I've always watched cartoons since I was little but my anime watching started with Dragonball and has branched out from there. I watch and love many forms of animation.

    Default Re: How did you get into anime ?

    I've been into anime basically my entire life, but back then I didn't realize anime was any different from other cartoons. When I was young I would just watch literally whatever cartoons came on TV, since I had just gotten cable, and among those happened to be shows like One Piece... that was a long time ago... but I think I started getting a better idea of the 'anime' side of things when I started watching Naruto and Kekkaishi, and my friends got me into Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Bleach. That was still several years ago, but since then I've expanded my interests and investigated more obscure anime/manga as well as a couple of the more popular ones.

    My first anime was Pokémon when I was around 8. Though the first anime I knew was anime was InuYasha, probably around age 11 or 12. I remember liking the music and the art, and it all just snowballed from there. The theme song Shinjitsu no Uta in particular is what first got me into Japanese music and the language in general.

    Thank you, Do As Infinity.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokemon as a child. Though back then they were just cartoons to me. I had seen various things on toonami but probably didn't get into anime till around late 2011/ early 2012. SAO was definitely a contributor to my anime addiction. My friend showed me it when it was airing it's first season.

    I was in middle school and I believe it was in 7th grade. A girl that was new to my school introduced me Inuyasha and I liked it a lot.
    I did watch Pokemon then too, but like other people said, I didn't know it was anime at the time.

    I got into anime, watching Pokemon, Digimon (my favorite anime of all time), Sailor Moon, Gundam Wing, Tenchi Muyo, Rurouni Kenshin, Cowboy Bebop, and Dragonball Z. Entertainment-wise, I had a great childhood. Anime was a big part of that.

    Default Re: How did you get into anime ?

    For me it all began with Dragon-ball! <3 Loved Goku.
    Then it moved to naruto, and that's when I learnt that all these cartoons were actually called anime.
    That's where it picked up.
    I have a on and off relationship with anime, I watch one or two series continously every year. I don't really follow new updated series; usually lose track.

    My first anime was Sailor Moon and Pokémon without even realizing it was known as anime. I can't remember what age I was at the time so I just assumed it was a regular cartoon like everything else. It wasn't until my late teens when my best friend from the States began mentioning about anime and manga and spending money on both. Of course I regret not showing more interest in anime back then now because I'm sure I would have had interesting talks with her and others and gotten into it earlier.

    I didn't get into anime for real until last year. I was checking around on my friends' likes on Facebook and noticed that at least five liked Avatar the Last Airbender, so I checked it out. I fell in love right away and wanted to watch more like it. I asked a friend about her favourites and some recommendations. A few months later I found out that my sister and fiancé watch anime as well. My interest with anime has increased since. It's definitely a lot of fun discussing what you're currently watching or have watched with my brother-in-law and my friend from the States.
    just believe

    It all started in 1995. I was walking under the train tracks in New York. There was a video-rental store with a katana and shurikens behind the glass window. I walked in and the shady chubby dude behind the counter was watching episodes of Dragon Ball Z on VHS. My friend and I were very curious about this so-called "Japanese anime". This was before the censored DBZ episodes were broadcasted on North American television.

    Shortly after, I purchased the original Vampire Hunter D (1985) and and the DBZ OVA called Lord Slug. These movies were recorded over used VHS tapes at the time and discreetly sold for around $8 each.

    I've been into Anime ever since.

    My cousin and friend begged me to watch it to the point where I was annoyed.
    I said if I watched a whole season they have to stop bugging me.
    First anime was Angel Beats
    Slap to the face
    Changed entire view on life and anime

    I first anime I watched was when I was 8 and it was Akira....... had no idea what was going on it was back when Mtv used to play anime on it. The Three series that got me hooked from there on was when I was 12 was pokemon, dragonball z, and gundam wing. A big thanks to adult swim or whatever they used to call it back in the day *old man status*
