Pokémon, but the first one I watched and cared about was Digimon. The first anime I watched and was actually aware it was anime was FMA.

I watched Pokemon, Digimon, Dragon Ball Z and Cardcaptor Sakura when I was younger, but I didn't realise they were anime at the time.

Fullmetal Alchemist would have been one of the first anime I watched, knowing that it was anime.

First anime I watched was either Pokemon or Dragon Ball Z on TV when I was just a little kid. I also watched Digimon and Cardcaptor Sakura at around that age.

Naruto was what got me hooked into watching anime although I didn't know it was anime initially either. First anime I watched fully knowing it was anime was probably Death Note.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Hare Hare Yukai was catchy enough that it pulled me in.

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.

Unfortunately Pokemon was my first :(.

The first series that got me interested in anime, however, was Rurouni Kenshin.

I don't remember exactly because it was 20 years ago. I didn't even know that it was anime, learned about this one year ago :) Until then I thought that my first anime was Captain Tsubasa

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.

Pokemon I suppose, many years ago when I was 10-ish. Followed by Yu-Gi-Oh!. Had no concept of what anime is at the time. First anime when I actually knew what anime is, Bleach.

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.

I remember DBZ on TV, so I was familiar with it, but I didn't care for it, or anime at the time. Naruto was the first I actually got into, so I consider it my first.
