Other than Pokémon like you said, my other "when I was little" animes were Dragonball Z. I didn't follow it or anything, I used to watch it on VHS at a friend's house when we couldn't play outside. I didn't know much about it, but I always remember we would play outside as Dragonball Z characters. I would be Bulma XD.

 

When I actually got into anime for good, my first anime was InuYasha. Some girl I knew at school showed me it. And I really like it--and from there she introduced me to the Adult Swim Saturday "ACTN" lineup--Full Metal Alchemist, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (and there, is how I met my love hahaha XD), FLCL and all that good stuff. "My big three" I followed were FMA, GITS: SAC and InuYasha. Once and a while I'd catch Cowboy Bebop and Evangelion, but those were usually on later, and I'd end up falling asleep. XD

I would have to say it was Pokemon followed by Digimon since that was all I could remember when I was younger thinking they were cartoons before discovering they were anime. I would say Inuyasha was the anime that got me wondering what I was watching and from there I was watching anime and reading manga from BORDERS. Anyone remember that place?

My dad introduced me to Speed Racer and from there I went to Dragonball. Everything else I got was from Toonami and the rest is history.

 

The first complete manga I bought was Real Bout High School. I still have my Borders card somewhere, although I think I might have gotten the series from a combination of Borders, Barnes and Nobles, and Waldenbooks.

I believe the first anime I ever saw was Dragon Ball Z. Most of my introduction to anime was whatever was on Toonami.

Sailor Moon was my first anime. it is to this day my favorite anime. Now the anime that got me started following anime like I do (I watch about 6-8 series a season now) was Shagukan no Shana. It got me into Jpop as well. Mami Kawada is my girl lol!

Probably Voltron. Back then I was like..5, I didn't know what anime was =p

Me and my cousin would watch random chinese dubbed Dragonball Z movies when I was 12 or 13; I would have no clue what the story was about, but the action was awesome xD

Hello!

 

Ah, those times. DBZ, Sailor Moon and Pokemon were the first ones I watched. Nothing too fancy. Does anyone remember Zoids?

I used to watch Hamtaro too but I don't why but I never saw it as an anime. :I

 

Even though it is....

Superbook! XD I was super young and had no idea what anime even was, let alone that it WAS anime, but it was definitely my first one. Also watched a few other random ones that I had no idea were anime over the years - like Saban's Adventures of the Little Mermaid - but I didn't get into it until Digimon. Others around that time were Escaflowne, Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha (watched episodes taped in Japan with no subs thanks to a friend of mine, lol), Fushigi Yuugi, Kodocha, Soul Hunter, Cardcaptors, Mon Colle Knights, and most anything else that appeared on network TV at the time.

When I was young, one of the animated series I watched was Voltron. I wasn't concerned about its origin or style at the time. (That's an attitude which I try to retain to this day, even if I don't always succeed.)

 

Near the end of high school, a friend lent me a videotape of Slayers TV. It was the first step into a much larger world. Over the next few years, I would rent, borrow, and buy dozens of other series.

There was a series/sequel that aired on TechTV something like ten years ago (remember Leo LaPorte anybody?) called: Banner of the Stars/Crest of the Stars. That was the first 'toon' I'd seen that had story arcs and character development.

 

That got me started on Evangelion. By the time it ended I was hooked on anime.

 

Started con-going at GeekKon when it formed and to ACen for the past 2x years. All of it awesome!

I remember Real Bout High School!

 

The first anime that I ever saw would have to be Voltron or Sailor Moon, I'm not sure which I was able to catch first. From there, it was love at first viewing. I sought out all of the anime I could find (which wasn't much at the time). I watched Dragon Ball Z, Ronin Warriors, and even some awesome movies like Golgo 13 and Vampire Hunter D during late-night showings on movie channels like Showtime or HBO. I even remember watching Project A-Ko (I think it was on the SciFi channel). And of course, my favorite animated movie of my childhood: My Neighbor Totoro.
