Some of these aired about 2 or 3 years ago.
That is some weak shit right there.


You'd think since these votes are coming from a Japanese audience that you'd find more classic series

Death note introduced me to it and Naruto sealed the deal, though it's pretty bad now.

Robotech was the first anime I actually got into.
Then Lodoss
Then Nadesisco
My first big year for anime was 2010.
I probably saw my first anime around 2003.

This is, more or less, a listing thread so I wouldn't be surprised if it got locked.

Truthfully I'll have to say that no anime made me feel like getting into anime. I hadn't played videogames for almost a year so I just started watching anime.

I didn't get into anime from a show. It's more like I was exposed to it among my peers which got me into it. But to answer the question, Love Hina got me hooked.

Hey, OreImo isn't on the list, I'm special

In all seriousness though, I'd trade OreImo for any of those.

Seeing SAO having so many votes is depressing.

But mine would be Dragonball Z and Yu-Gi-Oh!(I'm somewhat ashamed to say).

It wasn't a anime that got me into actually seeking out anime.It was animated movie Heavy Metal and I wanted to find animation aimed at adults. So I went to a Sun Coast video store in the 1990s looking for animation aimed at adults and came across the anime section. I bought Ninja Scroll,Akira, and Ghost in the Shell. Although there is no anime movie that can compare to Heavy Metal.

I think it was Love Hina, which aroused my interest in ecchi/harem anime, or Highschool of the Dead, those were the first two, don't really remember in what order, but I certainely had a boner most of the time while watching hotd.

Parents got me My Neighbor Totoro when I was born/a baby. Grew up being addicted to watching that film which naturally led to other anime as a kid. Then Toonami came around and that just solidified me as a lifelong anime fan with stuff like Yu Yu Hakusho, DBZ, Rurouni Kenshin, G Gundam, Outlaw Star, etc. and of course other stuff like Pokemon, Digimon, Yu Gi Oh

But to answer the question it was definitely Totoro.

One Piece was also my first anime ever seen it was on tv and then I started watching anime on my PC, every summer I finish short animes that go from 1 to 30 episodes more or less in a week. I guess anime it's now an important part of my live.

I became an otaku after watching School Days(i had 30-40 titles on those times, maybe in 2010).
But i'm know, first anime in my life is "Flying Phantom Ship". In ~1997 year, on VHS. After this i completed Shaman King, and start watching Naruto(1st season) - this anime streaming on commercial TV, with full dub and of course censored(removes all blood scenes).

Mirai Nikki was my first anime but it wasn't until probably Steins;Gate that I actually got into anime.

I had "known of" anime for a long time, and had a few friends who watched it, but I always figured it was just another weird foreign thing that wackos on the internet like. Hell, I still think it's some weird foreign thing that wackos on the internet like. I suppose that just makes me a wacko on the internet.

Anyway, I digressed.

About a year ago a friend of mine basically forced me to watch Avatar (yeah, I know it's not an anime). I ended up thoroughly enjoying the series, so much so that I kinda got that feeling you get after watching/reading a really good piece of fiction where you feel sad it's over. I was so desperate to find something else with that same kind of "style" to watch that I decided to try out the whole "anime thing" that I had for so long scoffed at.

I did a quick Google search for good anime and I basically just picked the first one I found: FMAB. I loved that series even more than I liked Avatar, and at that point I was hooked.

Obviously I'm still relatively green to the whole thing (I think I've only got like 30-something series on my completed list) but I've definitely found a black hole for my free time. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, I'll let my future self decide.

I wrote a lot more than I intended. Kinda went off on a little spiel there...
TL;DR - Avatar (Again, I know it's not an anime...) -> FMAB

Voltez V
Mazinger Z
Doraemon(1979) not the 2005

I think pretty much everyone that grew up in North Americas first anime were Pokemon, Digimon, Dragon ball series. At least anybody that grew up in the 90s. Although I didnt start actively watching anime til i got hooked on Naruto/Bleach a few years ago

Naruto.....after that I started hear about other main stream anime like Bleach,Inuyasha.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

http://www.classzone.com/books/lnetwork_gr08/page_build.cfm?content=analyz_media&ch=30

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

Never thought much about anime since all I had seen before was the very mainstream ones. Then there was FMAB....

Well, I guess first anime other than naruto would be Death Note, but since my immature mind could only think of boobs and other female genitalia, I would have to say To love ru.
