I like animated shows as a kid like DBZ and Pokemon, but I wasn't a true anime fan untill I saw Samurai Champloo. I came home late one night from my job as a clerk at a retail store, and it was on [adult swim]. I had been watching [adult swim] for the American content (Family Guy, Futurama, Aqua Teen Hunger Force) for a while.

I didn't truly have an understanding and an appricetation for anime untill I saw the documentary "From Scroll To Screen: A Brief History of Anime" that was an extra on The Animatrix DVD.

A long time ago I used to occasionally get to watch a Sunday morning kids' show where they showed miscellaneous cartoons, but I liked it best when they showed Kimba the White Lion. I knew there was something really different about it that I liked, but I was still too young to know about anime or even about Japan.

For about as long as I can remember I've watched anime, mind you, when I was younger I had no idea it was anime. I think what really got me into anime was watching FMA on [as].

I've been watching anime before I knew what it was.

6-7 year olds, propped in front of the TV, watching Littl' Bits, and Maya the Bee.

What got me into anime was when I was at my babysitters, I would watch TV during nap time. (I didn't have to take a nap, because I didn't get grumpy) That was the start of it. What really got me hooked was those years of waiting for my parents to pick me up from the boys and girls club.

the first time i've watched anime (introduced, although never really knew) was when tv here started airing astro boy (i was 4 or so) together with thunder cats, and speed racer.. i got hooked on astro boy (some episodes where still black and white LOL).. i remember mom would wake me up in the afternoon (afternoon nap, yes i was still VERY young) just to watch astro.. and then came the others as i grow up.. (story of my life XD) and noticing the difference between other 'toons' this type caught my interest because it had a storyline that bugs bunny didn't have.. after watching ray earth on tv i started to research.. internet wasn't available here at the time or it just wasn't feasible in my very small world that time... 1994 i think.. but i discoverd that it wasnt 'toons' was watching but anime.. after some years i was addicted to it when i later saw rurouni kenshin.. and then this is who i was.. hmm.. now that i think of it.. astro is the reason why i cant raise my savings..

Adult Swim was my first reali experience with anime that I can recall with accuracy, mainly Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop. My friends got me into it. But my first experience with anime was with various shows for children I used to get on video.

I watched anime as in Dragon Ball and Yu Yu Hakusho when i was 5 or 6, but i watched it like a cartoon, not anime. what actually got me into it was Nny showing me Fullmetal Alchemist, then i think i started One Piece and soon after i was watching anime like crack.
