Oh, this brings back memories. My first anime was Sailor Moon, when I was sooo little. I had the moon sceptre, dolls and everything. Oh, and Pokemon came after that. And digimon...I guess if you wanna count the first one I watched obssessively it'd be Fushigi Yuugi.
my first anime in *japanese audio* was Ai no Kusabi... as for tv series it was Yami no Matsuei and Gravitation (watched both at the same time)
funny i went backwards - from yaoi to shoujo to mainstream shounen xD;
My first anime? I've been watching anime before I knew what it was – I grew up watching my father's classic anime (i.e., Astroboy) and my older brothers' favourite early eighties anime (i.e., Transformers, Voltron, etc.) tapped on video cassettes (do they still sell those?).
The first anime that I got hooked on, which I hate to admit and feel totally embarrassed about, was Pokemon and Digimon. Yes, I was hit with the Poke/Digi/whatever-mon craze that hit North America in the nineties. I remember spending most of my pocket money on those silly Trading Card game – come to think of it I think I still have those cards somewhere...
The very first anime I ever saw was Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro
When I saw it back in the day it was a few years old. I've since bought it on DVD so I can relive my first anime experience whenever I want.
I think first time I watched it was 1991-1992, I'm pretty sure it was released early 80s or something so it was a good decade old by the time I watched it. I was only born in 84 though so guess that means I was 7 or 8 at the time.
Oh Lord. XD I guess it would be Pokémon then. I still remember first watching it. I believe the first episode I ever watched wassss... 'Charmander the stray Pokémon'. Loved it ever since, shame the dub kinda sucked as time went on. :/
Ok, upon originally thinking it was pokemon, it was actually The Moomins. Then Pokemon then digimon and then yu-gi-oh. Then CCS.
All in english dub when i hadn't a clue what anime was. DX
I think i watched the moomins when i was like 3-4.
If I watched any anime as a kid, I certainly don't remember. My first remembered anime experiences came when I would watch LDs(!) with one of my friends my freshman year of high school. We would rent anime from this Chinese video store. I specifically remember the Vampire Princess Miyu OVA and Fake, but I can't say if they were the first or not.
nmnm I think it was digimon..
my first anime after knowing what it is was inuyasha (but not from the beginning), and the first one after knowing what anime is and the one that made me start watching anime was fruits basket.
I can name my first 4. the first anime i ever saw was Dbz when i was about 8, i think, back when you could only see it very early on saturday mornings. 2 was Tenchi with 3 being Gundam Wing and 4 a random sprinkling of Sailor Moon.
