Well I think pretty much everybody's was pokemon or card captor or something along those lines. My first anime (that I knew was anime) was DNAngel. I watched it subbed when I was like 12, and slowly made my way into otakudom since. It's honestly an average show but I loved it.

Yep I agree here.(on TV).
But my Really first Anime watched (on the internet) was Elfen Lied, too dark for me.
My first anime was Sailor Moon. I was very very young at the time and only caught random episodes on TV every now and then. I didn't even realize what anime was back then, just thought I was watching a weird kind of cartoon I guess. It's a nostalgic memory for me but hard to recall, couldn't have been older than 7-8 at the time. I've never actually bothered to watch Sailor Moon completely. I'm not sure how it would hold up being that magical girl series seem a bit too childish and or girly for me.
And the first anime that actually made big impact was Berserk, at around age 14. Not exactly an appropriate series to watch at that age but that's what happened and I certainly enjoyed the hell out of it.
Why you didn't listen, don't you want to live a real life, a life not centred around false hopes and disappointments? "Grow up", move on, you are not a kid any-more, its time to be someone. Apathy is death, worse than death.

The FIRST anime I ever watched was Sailor Moon. I didn't watch it religiously. My sister watched it more than I did. I wasn't your typical otaku fanboy when I was young so I just considered it a girly anime I didn't enjoy that much.
The first anime that I actually watched religiously (every Saturday) was Digimon and Escaflowne. Of course, I got mad at Fox for dropping Escaflowne so quickly (it was pretty violent for a kids show) but I thoroughly enjoyed Digimon and it was the gateway for me to try out different anime. I ended trying out shows like Cowboy Bebop and NGE, and found out just how dark and adult themed anime can be. That's one thing I always preferred in anime over American cartoons. While American cartoons always focused more on action/comedy for kids and specifically comedy for adults, anime was one of the first cartoons I ever saw that seemed more focused on providing action/drama for young adults.
