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.


Quite similar to me! DBZ and Gundam Wing.. Ah I remember when they played those on Toonami years ago. Good times~

Without knowing it was anime, Pokemon. The first anime I watched knowing it was anime was Cowboy Bebop.

Pretty boring, I know.

Can't remember since technically I saw my first anime on Toonami way back when.

I'd always thought the first anime I saw was Akira, but having found Transformers G1 on here I guess I've been into anime a lot longer than I thought. I practically grew up on Transformers! Speaking of which, is it me or was Peter Cullen trying to sound like John Wayne...

My first anime was Geneshaft. I was just watching adult swim when I stumbled onto it. I thought it was a really cool anime.

I can't remember... lots of anime aired when I was a kid so it could have been Saint Seiya or Gundam. This was almost 15 years ago xD

It was Pokemon, you know, during the massive craze! It may not be the best anime in the world (far, far from it) but it'll always have a special place in my heart. Oh, the nostalgia! Bygone days of arguing over who had the best shiny cards. I miss the simplicity of childhood! ;)

Hmm, my very first anime. It was Neon Genesis Evangelion - back in the days of the glorious VHS cassette. But despite Ghost in the Shell and the occasional Ghibli film over the years, anime didn't really stick to me until fall this year when i discovered Claymore. And now I'm thoroughly addicted.

My first anime? Its a complicated question for me.

An episode of Teknoman I saw at my aunt's house when I was eight. Then there was part of an episode of Robotech (the third season, with the cool bikes that became armor) I saw when I was eight, too. I never caught the whole thing though 'cause I had to go to school. :P Then there was Ronin Warriors which I caught most of when I was nine years old. And DBZ which I caught in fourth grade on Fox, then in fifth grade on CN's Toonami. Finally in sixth grade at the age of 12, I saw the anime that made me realize there WAS "anime", Gundam Wing. So if you want to be literal, Teknoman, but I really only count G Wing. :D

Probably Pokemon, but that was when I was little and I didn't know about anime. So really it was Chobits

My first was Akira, when it was actually shown on british tv for the first time (ages ago now.... think it was channel 4 and it was split between 2 nights iirc). It was dubbed and cut, but it was still so different to anything I'd seen before!

Well I watched "Speed racer" ("Mach GoGoGo") when I was little and I didn't even know it was anime xD So I don't know if it counts. If not than I would say Elfen Lead (it was a strong start xD)
I'll be nicer if you give me chocolate and bishies ^^

I guess Dragon Ball was the first that I saw in the early 90s when it was on TV. At the time, I was around 9, so I didn't really realize that it was anime. The first that I actually knew was anime was NGE.

after i finished watching naruto i thought that i want to watch other animes and so i became an anime freak :D

i started watching anime not too long ago... maybe 1 and a half years ago at the most.

The first anime that I really followed with a dedicated passion was Rockman.EXE Axess or as it was known in the US at the time, Megaman: NT Warrior Axess or something along those lines. I still remember being heartbroken when...



I may end up buying the DVDs for that season if they ever freaking get released! Come on people it doesn't take 3 years to finish one season! *fumes*

Neon Genesis Evangelion, though I didn't understand half of the stuff going on. However like every kid at that age I watched Dragonball Z and Pokemon, seeing them now brings on such a sense of nostalgia.
I hate World of Warcraft

Technically, my first anime was Pokemon, but seeing as I was 11 at the time and didn't know what anime was, I think that hardly counts. :p

Since then, I'd also watched Dragonball Z, Cardcaptors, as well as Sailor Moon, but I also had no idea that these were anime.

The first anime, as it were, that I watched was Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. Needless to say with a movie that gave me a very good impression.

The first series I watched Inuyasha.

The first series I finished was FLCL.

I first saw Gundam Wing on television (dubbed...), then i considered anime by downloading all FullMetal Alchemist episodes. After watching FMA i got addicted.

Ghost in the Shell, followed closely by Hellsing.
One thing I've noticed is that actual knowledge and certifications are inversely proportional.

Mine was Ranma 1/2. It's a perfect anime to start off with. It gave a great taste of what anime could and should be.
