    My first anime was Sailor Moon. I didn't know it was anime. The fact that it was drawn differently than other shows was what I really enjoyed.

    My first animoo was Dragonball but not the era you're probably thinking.
    i grew up on Okinawa in the 80's so i got front row seats to the original broadcast at a young age.
    it's obviously not the first show i watched, obviously, but it's the first that's still memorable and relevant today.

    Hmmm, my very first anime was either Robotech/Macross, Akira, or the Dragon Warrior (based on the first game on the NES). It was so long ago, I don't remember clearly.

    First anime I ever saw? Sailor Moon and Pokemon, probably - both were huge in Russia.
    First anime series I actually finished? Either Cowboy Bebop or Attack on Titan, I don't remember correctly.
    First titles that got me into watching anime on daily basis? JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Ping Pong the Animation - I watched some titles on rare occasion, when I had nothing to do or watch, but those were two ones that really made me dive full-on into anime community and converted me from "casual observer" to "filthy weeb" :D

    I think all of them are good introductions - Sailor Moon and Pokemon are friendly and simplistic enough without being completely dumb (well, compared to some other titles out there), Cowboy Bebop is the best anime series of all time in any case (no discuss, you know it's true :v ), Attack on Titan is a cool and digestible flick, PPtA is a great "token arthouse anime" for your hipsterheads of choice, and JoJo is, well, JoJo.

    Technically My Neighbour Totoro or Sailor Moon, although in terms of knowingly watching anime, Welcome to the NHK! was probably my first, along with bits of Azumanga Daioh.

    ^ JoJo and Masaaki Yuasa series are good ways to turn you into a disgusting weeaboo. I approve.

    Does Voltron count? If not, it was the first two years of Sailor Moon.

    Dose Aeon Flux count as anime?

    Never cared for Chinese cartoons but most of my friends spent a couple of years trying to convince me to watch them. Got me to watch Angel Beats and Higurashi

    They're pretty alright for cartoons

    Death Note. I couldn't stop watching and forgot to even eat. At one point I didn't have access to a computer so I finished the series on my iPad. I watched all of it in 3 school days.

    Death note is recent and kinda sinister.
    Also I found a remake of Sally:

    The first anime I actually throughly watched was Black Butler, I have no regrets.

    That was one of my first. Very good, indeed. One hell of a show.

    I can't tell if you were making a reference or I'm just weak-minded.

    That was indeed a devil of a reference.

    Grimm's Fairytale Classics, the Noozles, The Fantastic Adventures of Unico, and Unico in the Island of Magic were my first animes, that I can recall.

    (Does X-Men count, given that it was animated by Saban?)

    I first became aware of anime as a distinct genre when a friend gushed about Ranma 1/2.

    Unico! :3

    My boyfriend found the complete comics at a discount when he was in town and I read a few. They're adorable.
