My first anime was Speed Racer in the early 90s. For some reason it came on MTV, so that was the only time my mom let us watch the channel.July 20, 2018 at 8:45 pm #30395JessicaSpectator

My neighbor Totoro. My uncle married a Japanese lady and she put it on. It was in Japanese, which I don’t speak. I was about 14 maybe? I watched it anyway because I found it so enchanting and then the cat bus! Oh wow I was so excited!. Started watching anime as soon as I could get a video store membership 🙂October 9, 2018 at 5:11 pm #30617SaraSpectator
Mine was Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel monsters <3October 9, 2018 at 5:49 pm #30618WrenSpectator
Sailor Moon! I loved watching it on Toonami. The little art segments they’d run during the commercials was the whole reason I started drawing! I wanted to be picked.October 13, 2018 at 10:42 pm #30622JanineParticipant
Claymore! I think I started with a winner. I’ve loved anime and manga ever since. 🙂October 14, 2018 at 6:17 am #30623RafaelSpectator
I had two big “anime phases” in my life:
The first was between the ages of 4 to 14, it began with Saint Seya and ended with shows like Inuyasha and Hellsing.
Then when I was 22 I decided to watch all the top 250 movies on the IMDB and I stumbled on Miyazaki’s films, first Spirited Away then Princess Mononoke and I was so impressed by their quality that I decided to dive into this amazing world again.October 14, 2018 at 4:21 pm #30624AnonymousInactive

For me it would be Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Dragonball Z and Digimon they used to be on back to back after school.July 13, 2019 at 7:42 pm #31167Gabrielle JonesSpectator
I think the first anime I ever watched was Pokemon, followed by Yu-Gi-Oh, Digimon and Sailor Moon. But I’ve always considered Cardcapture Sakura as my gateway anime.October 24, 2019 at 12:16 am #31288AnonymousInactive
Sailor moon and pokemon. Years later Angel beats and deathnoteAugust 15, 2021 at 2:54 pm #32274DanM86Spectator
First anime would be Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland although it had both American and Japanese animators in production. After that would be Pokémon back in the late 90s.September 29, 2021 at 6:56 pm #32311AbbiSpectator
i watched pokemon and some ghibli films as a kid, then intentionally got into anime through parasyte (i kept seeing memes of it on facebook and wanted to know what it was about!)October 18, 2021 at 12:27 pm #32333Daniel V.Participant
Like many 90s kids I grew up watching Dragon Ball and that was one of the greatest influences I ever had in my life. Goku truly inspired me to be a better person and doing what I consider right and this and that.
Many people probably see this kind of animes as “just a nonsensical, violent show with a bunch of overpowerered guys exchanging hits and energy balls”, and while that’s not totally inaccurate I just kept with the good side, which I think is much bigger than the bad side.
In recent decade I also started watching One Piece and, although I arrived late to “the hype” and I watched it just for curiosity, I soon got to love it, in some ways even more than DBZ. Once again I’m aware of the many issues of this kind of animes (I especially have a hard time dealing with the oversexualized female characters and mysoginist stuff) but the good side of these is so big… I guess I can simply forgive that.
Also watched other animes in the middle ranging from similar “shonens” like Bleach and Full Metal Alchemist to “more adult-oriented” stuff like Death Note and Monster. Although very old (much older than me, actually) also watched Mazinger Z and derivated spin-offs like Great Mazinger and Grendizer and I had a good time with these. Grendizer is one that keeps resonating often in my mind because my toxic relationship with technology in recent decade after this cyber-world being my passion for so many years, similar to how Dr. Umon had his passion for astronomy crushed by war. But these are topics that goes beyond anime anyways.
