My first anime was Akazukin Chacha. I didn't remember the name of it for the longest time, and I was always referring to it as 'that anime with the magical girl in the red cape' whenever people asked me about it. I remember absolutely nothing of it, but I remember that I always turned the TV on without fail to catch it when it aired.
...its not a problem for a guy to like it so shut up XD
Anyway, it was on a local channel a long time ago when I lived in California.
The first anime I ever completed was .hack//SIGN (and it is my favorite anime yet).
The longest anime I have ever finished was Fullmetal Alchemist (I can't keep up with the other series, lol)
I remember watching on TV some episodes of Speed Racer and Transformers when I was a kid -- but I'm not even sure which one was the first since I was just sorta randomly watching it on par with a lot of other stuff (these two are not even on my list because of that).
Anyway, my first anime I chose to watch and completed was Hellsing and immediately after that -- Evangelion (I actually bought them both together). Needles to say I liked them both (each one in its own way) and became quite a fan of anime since then.
First - Sailor Moon, then Mahou Tsukai Sally, then this shoujo anime - can't remember its name - it was about a little blond girl who comes to England with her mom to visit her dad (who was a lord) and her bigger sister, Sarah, but her mother dies in a car accident -- if someone knows what I'm talking about, please tell me. ^_^ But anyway these animes were watched between 4 and 8 years old or so.
Then the anime that I really got hooked on when I was little was Dragon Ball. I just loved it.
The anime that got me into anime was Inuyasha though.
I don't really remember but I think my first anime was Akira when I was about 7 or 8, my brother rented it and I ended up watching it. But when I was young I use to watch a show from France named Club Dorothe that used to show Sailor Moon, Ranma, Dragon Ball Z, Cat's eye...So those were my first animes.
mine was love hina xDD ~ saw it with my big brother a saturday afternoon... All new to anime, and it was in japanese so i though it was funny listening to their voices (i was about 5) but i read the subbys :P and really liked it xD after that i watched ccs and dbz and sailor moon O___O *pukes* I WAS 5!!!! xDD
My first anime was either Pokemon or Sailor Moon, I can't remember which. But at the time I didn't know they were anime. I think the first anime I saw when I finally knew what anime is was Spirited Away :]
