When I was 5 or 6, I used to sneak downstairs to watch [Adult Swim] back when they aired awesome stuff, and then when I was a little older they started airing awesome stuff like Wolf's Rain, FLCL, Cowboy Bebop and Gundam, and I was hooked. My biggest experience with anime was when I was 9 or 10 I think, around when Toonami was airing Gundam Wing and Outlaw Star...if I remember right. I was never the same. Manga was more or less around the same time, but Shonen Jump in Middle School was the main branch of that.

Now that I've been more into watching subs, I'm trying to teach myself Japanese in between waiting to start my medical program next year and looking to take college classes in Japanese so that I can learn better by speaking with others. The deterioration of my three years of German from High School is testament to how good it is to constantly be able to speak with others while learning. I don't really remember that much anymore. -sigh- That is exactly how I learned it in AP Psychology, mental recall decreases exponentially when dealing with lack of constant reinforcement or need to use a certain skill which is acquired through conversation with others. Languages are not impossible, but tough nonetheless.

Today I actually questioned why I knew anything at all regarding English even, because I don't suddenly recall when I was able to make abstract concepts the topic of long discussions, or even how to really initiate them, let alone think of what to say in them. It's odd.
The more I study languages, the more I wonder what it's like to be a child and learn them. I'll bet it's really fluid. -sigh-

Well the first anime I watched was Sailor Moon. I used to watch it every morning when it aired on tv.
And that was when I was around 4. I was an early bloomer
