Terror in Resonance, Tokyo Ghoul and Aldnoah.zero are what got me into watching seasonal animes. But before that, I've only watched animes on TV and SAO.

It was literally just curiosity. I had seen so many Death Note references growing up so I gave in one day and decided to see what everyone was talking about. That was 4 years ago and I'm still here lol

Sailor moon, Cyborg 009 and Ginga nagareboshi gin. Before those few morning cartoons but didn't never think some of them were "anime". Most stuff my younger self watched were shows my sister watched, so I just watched stuff from 90's-2000's with her and later when I got some understanding of english i started to search shows on my own.

Was changing channels as a kid and I suddenly saw this kid busting up a huge blue wave (kid Goku) and it spiked my interest.
DB has been a pretty hot topic back on my school, even the teachers knows Goku lol.
While DB was out I looked for other shows like it and saw Yu Yu Hakusho with this guy this time shooting a blue wave on his index finger and then the most epic asshole known to man Onizuka from GTO, basically my top 3 anime that made me into the anime loving dude now.

I never in my life thought I would get into anime as I founded it "childish" until my brother showed me a Naruto amv. I gave it a try and since then I got stuck on anime. =)

There was never really anything that motivated me to actually watch anime, it just simply happened during a spring break of mines back in 2012.

I was pretty bored one day and while on my Xbox I had this really shitty app named Crackle and it had a ton of random stuff, be it really niche western films, documentaries,etc. When browsing through its catalogue I saw it had a small anime section and decided to look at what was available.

Out of what they had, I started with Durarara and it pretty much was the show that simply got me into anime. Once I finished it I kept on watching more and more anime's afterwards.

In a way, I should thank Crackle for getting me into anime because at the time I would have never bothered to even look up shows on illegal streaming sites lol.

I just happened to see some anime on TV one day. Of course, I didn't know that it was anime...but it made me watch shows similar to that. I'm not sure what my first anime was though... It might have been Inuyasha, Pokemon, or Bakugan. (I only watched a bit of Pokemon because I just wanted to check it out; it didn't appeal to me. I preferred Bakugan. Lol.)

Anyway, Yu-Gi-Oh and Dragon Ball were two very important series for me. They are the root of my love for shounen anime, especially Dragon Ball. And a friend of mine got me into dark anime. I'm pretty sure that the first dark one I watched was Elfen Lied.

Man, those were good times. Watching Adult Swim as a kid, staying up late to catch Inuyasha and Yu Yu Hakusho were good times. I grew up loving Gundam Wing, G Gundam, and DBZ.

I know, right? It was actually late while I was watching Inuyasha. I had watched a whole episode for the first time (I think) and then the ending song came on. It was absolutely beautiful and the glowing Ferris wheel mesmerized me. Somehow, I ended up forgetting about it. Fast forward about 2 or 3 years and I'm watching Dragon Ball Z Kai, wishing I could do those cool moves! I totally want to go back those days...

Right? I know the feeling. Not a care in the world, time seemed to last forever and the world was at our fingertips. I feel that we all lose that as we become adults. Thats why I hold this medium so close.

well it was ecchi anime first then started to find shows with interesting stories. now I don't hate ecchi but I tend to stay away from it.

but Ultimately it was all Naruto's doing plus a little Inuyasha , without him there would be no anime life for me

Both are forever classics in my book.
Naruto is one of my all time favorites

Yeah. When I was younger, I didn't think much of the time I had. Now, I love the feeling of having all the time in the world. Unfortunately, yes, it does seem that we lose this. And I can understand why because I feel the same. Hopefully, I'll still have time for anime as an adult.

Anime tiddies. Sure, cool powers attracted me, but I stayed for the physics.

Or perhaps it was too sweet,

It was Sailor Moon on Toonami in 1998. I just ran into it while flipping through the channels, and I was hooked pretty much immediately. I remember that night, excitedly telling my sisters about this great show I'd found, and how I couldn't wait to see more. I quickly found out what "anime" was, and within a year of first seeing that episode of Sailor Moon, I was watching any and all anime I could find. I watched anything airing on TV, no matter how bad it was, I rented anime from rental places, I bought all I could afford on VHS, and so on. Sailor Moon got me into subtitled anime, too. The 5th season wasn't dubbed, so I had no choice but to watch it subbed, which I did in 2001. Sailor Moon was also my first manga, and the first anime merchandise I bought (2 Sailor Stars trading cards, bought on eBay in 1999). So Sailor Moon was pretty much responsible for everything.

It was intended to be 6 OVAs instead of 2.

Also, a manga was made after.

Captain Tsubasa and Saint Seiya just randomly started airing on national TV.

I was hooked on anime and didn't even know it was from Japan.
1 hour = 10,000 yen.
2 hours = 20,000 yen.
3 hours = 3 loaves of French bread.
4 hours = 4 loaves of French bread.

Watching the original DBZ, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Digimon, Yu Gi Oh! Beyblade etc. on TV as a 90s kid, thy were all dubbed in English and got me into anime. Back when we had to record shows with VHS instead of watching/downloading them online whenever we want

I watched Sailor Moon and Pokemon as a kid (In dub) I also watched Toonami and realized how much I hated DBZ. I watched a few eps of Chobits (dub) on Funimation after watching a friend watch Ouran HSHC (sub). Slowly got into SOL anime and here we are.

Upon returning this was the order how I got into SOL

SAO -> PM -> YLIA -> CLANNAD -> the rest can speak for itself

Not sure exactly. Cartoons at the time used these corny but 'rad' guitar riffs and I remember the anime then used a better version so I thought it was cool. More things but I remember that the most.
