I started getting into the anime culture,watching a lot of anime,buying mangas and stuff when I was 13. I always loved watching the animes that were on cartoon network though when I was real young. I did notice a difference even when I was about 7 that anime was different than other cartoons. I would be like.. " What is this show... this is so awsome! and different! *eagerly glues to tv screen waiting for something else to happen".

Same as most here, if Pokémon etc. counts, it would be like 7 years old. But I actively began watching Anime when I was 15 years old. =)

I was an avid watcher of Pokemon and the like when I was around ten years old, but I think I was around 15/16 when I properly got into anime.

Technically I was watching it when I was under ten, just not realizing what it was. But I think by the time I knew what it was and started collecting many different series under the genre that is anime, that I was around 12 or 13, 7th grade-ish. Definitely before high school.

I voted for "10-15" because there is no option for earlier. The beginning with my Anime hobby was when i was 8. That was year when Dragonball Z was shown in Germany so it was the first Anime i saw, which i cant remember. Im sure that i saw Sailor Moon too but i cant remember so nvm. Since i started with Dragon i watched more and more Anime´s. When i got a little bit older and i got my first PC i started to watch more Animes. First i watched only Ger.Dub but then i changed my mind because i realized that Ger.Dub sucks and Jap.dub is the real thing for me.

I've seen some anime films back when I was a toddler, but it wasn't until I was 12 or 13 that I really got interested in anime through Kids WB and Toonami.

Started watching anime daily when I was 11, I had poor english back then but from English subtitles I learnt English =P

If it counts, I started watching anime at age 7, Pokémon and Digimon was airing on TV every day except for weekends.

Well, I have to thank anime as it helped me in both School and life, you know... You get wiser by watching really great anime...
Now I am 15 but I still don't plan on quitting watching anime!

I started watching anime back in 2003 when I was 14 years old. A friend of mine introduced me to the world of anime and I feel grateful for that.

If I don't count watching Pokemon as a kid, I started to have some interest in anime upon viewing the bastardized broadcast of Escaflowne on Fox Kids back in 2000. What really got me hooked was when Evangelion was shown on KTEH a year later on Sunday nights at 9:30 when I was around 10 years old, but I did not start watching any other anime series until I turned 14.

I got into "anime" when I was 13, through the typical gateway anime: Sailormoon. I would get up at 6 in the morning, a half hour earlier than necessary for school just to watch it.

Started at 6-7 with DBZ, Saint Seiya, Yu Yu Hakusho, Inuyasha and Rurouni Kenshin on TV. When I got introduced to internet at ~11, and discovered I could download anime, I spinned out of control. Almost got myself killed watching like, 30 episodes a day (xD). I'm 19 now.

I was 13 I believe, shortly after my parents split up and I discovered anime on Cartoon Network and especially early adult swim with Cowboy Bebop and especially Outlaw Star really got me into anime.
