    If you count the first one I ever saw, it's probably Sailor Moon. The first one I ever went out of my way to see, however, was Madoka Magica. I feel like the latter really got me situated with anime as a whole.

    I was just going to say "Sailor Moon", like Skeletalfox before me, but I just realized I did watch another anime years earlier: Yattaman
    Then I watched Sailor Moon, of course not knowing what an anime was, and then Dragon Ball.
    The first anime I've watched *knowing* it was anime was Vampire Princess Miyu, and after that - Fushigi Yuugi

    I've got most of the classics from when I was a kid: Dragonball Z, Pokemon, Digimon, Yu Gi Oh, Sailor Moon...
    Hmmm, those were the days!

    My roommate was a HUGE anime fan. After some convincing, he got me to watch Elfen Lied. It's hella disturbing, but I enjoyed every second of it!

    The first one I watched all the way through on my own was Steins;gate, which thoroughly blew my mind. Seriously, if you haven't seen it yet, check it out! It's totally worth it!

    I remember waking up one morning when I was around 7 or 8 years old, and catching Sailor Moon on television. I used to have a crush on Sailors Mars and Jupiter. ^-^ Back then though, I didn't know what Anime was called so I called them "those weird cartoons where people's mouths look like balls when they talked"...yeah, I wasn't the brightest kid lol

    Amazing 3. Followed shortly after by Gigantor, Kimba the White Lion and Marine Boy. These of course where the American versions being shown on US T.V. in the 1960's. The first series I got into watching in Japanese was probably Zeta Gundam after seeing it at a convention in 1984 and joining the C/FO in 1985.

    Dragon-ball Z before funimation or toonami started. DBZ is self explanatory, after that I went on to watch Tenchi Muyo the rest is history, don't think you need the whole history. Ryoko Wifu is best Wifu.:p

    Sailor Moon. However, Pokémon and Digimon in their respective first seasons were far more memorable for me when they first aired in North America.

    Probably Rurouni Kenshin. I remember Kenshin being my role model when I was a little kid.

    DBZ or Avatar the Last air bender.

    The title of this thread gave me the initial impression that it was about weebs and anime sex; I'm glad that was not the case.

    Given your tastes, I feel safe in recommending you watch Texhnolyze. The show shares a director with Steins;Gate and has a lot in common in terms of visual aesthetic, but with the same character designer and writer as serial experiments: lain. It's dark and brutal and very strange, but I found it incredibly compelling.
