What was your first anime?


Gay Pink Husky who cant afford a fursuit.
Ninja Scroll and Akira.

Whoah trippy. The other ones apply as my other first 2 anime experiences probably, as well, but I was trying to settle on a single movie and only managed to narrow it down to the two surefire earliest among the 4 you mentioned.

Now have you watched any Fist of the North Star and really not a whole lot else other than maybe first gen Pokemon? If so we might be "casual anime" brothers.

No I'm not to casual
I've seen dozens upon dozens of other anime since then.
I even know a small amount of Japanese, because I tend to watch with subtitles only. over the years I've picked up on a few words and phrases


Gijinka lover
mine was naruto but I did not even know it was an anime because it was on teletoon.
So my first real anime is Spice and wolf


My /first/ first was Fruit Basket.
But my first series finished was Lucky Star.

Then a couple of series later, my fangirl spams started with Soul Eater.

Sailor Moon was both the first anime I ever saw in my life, and the first anime I watched in Japanese when I became an actual anime fan. :)

My first was Lucky Star! I'm not really into anime the way I used to be, but that particular show has warm and fuzzy memories for me. I remember watching it over and over because I thought it was so cute ^^


Pokemon was the first anime I had gotten into. I remember see parts of Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z years before, however the episodes came on at 5 or 6 AM.

I'm not sure what my first anime series was, but it would come down to Gatchaman (G-Force version), Speed Racer, Twilight of the Cockroaches (even though that was a movie), Samurai Pizza Cats, or Sailor Moon. At the time these were airing on TV in the States, I didn't really try to catch these shows: they just popped up while channel surfing. However, Samurai Pizza Cats was the show that made me fall in love with the anime style, but I didn't catch another series until Pokemon came out.

The First Anime Series I watched was Dragonball Z. It may not be the most profound one, but it's definitely over 9000!



Then best student council

Pokemon really isn't an anime but it's the first thing I ever watched.

I think the first contact I had with anime was with Magic Knight Rayearth, but I never got to fully watch it. Probably the first one I got to watch on a daily basis was Dragon Ball Z <3


Mine was full metal alchemist due to seeing it on toonami as a kid, I loved the intro. Forgot about it till I was in middle school and saw the intro on youtube and I was like OH YEAH I KNOW THIS AHH and watched the whole thing, rest is history

I'm sure someone has mentioned it by now, but for me it would probably be the old (mid 1970's) Transformers cartoons.

I still remember the sound effects when they would go from robot to vehicle, and how despite all the blasters and lasers and bombs, it seemed no one ever really got hurt.

Voltron, Sailor Moon and Project A-Ko. I used to get up real early Saturday mornings and catch the obscure stuff they played on the SyFy channel back in the day. It introduced me to classics like Robot Carnival, L.I.L.Y Cat, and Akira. I soon went out and bought Slayers, Escaflowne, and Sorcerer Hunters. I have such a deep sense of nostalgia for all these, and I love re-watching them. Last anime I watched was K, and I really liked it. My love of anime has calmed a bit, but I still really enjoy the old series,

If we are being technical Pokemon, way back in 1st grade (about 20 years ago).

They used to play Princess Mononoke on the local cable TV when I was a kid. I was about 5 or 6 when I first watched it. I still remember the scene with the pig... it used to scare the life out of me.

The first time I saw Princess Mononoke I was fairly young as well and it scared me and seemed gross and gory (I think my child mind exaggerated what I was seeing). I didn't like it at all then. Now I love it and find it absolutely beautiful ;pppp Also I don't mind gory things now (my favorite anime is very gory) but I was saying I think I exaggerated it in my mind because it's not really particularly gory at all.


The first anime I watched was Fairy Tail, but the first one I watched by myself was Corpse Party: Tortured Souls


Although I don't really watch anime nowadays, my first anime would have to be pokemon. I also consider the movie ponyo and the anime series robotics: notes as first animes that I have watched.


Sow of Substance
I didn't care for anime at all until I discovered Spirited Away , and Howls Moving Castle. Still prefer old cartoons from the 30's. Hate , the Hanna UnBearable stuff from the 60's and 70's.


Slow as sickness but true as sap
If the term for art and anime has remained the same since I first saw it, it would have to be Pokemon, or maybe Princess mononoke was first and the Pokemon?
