Having grown up in Southeast Asia, we got a different set of anime from everyone else in NA, and while it was mostly great (we got access to a ton of anime content that would have not passed here in the US at all back then), there were also some negatives connected to it (often bad dubbing, cutting and removing OP's and ED's, and, in some cases, the network's outright refusal to air the series in its entirety).

My first anime ever: Super Electromagnetic Machine Voltes V

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_DOIHQngJ8

I watched this when I was like, 5, and it took me until I grew up a bit to fully appreciate the story. While it followed the "Monster of the Week" format fairly closely, Voltes V had a very engaging and more mature story than most of the other series airing at the time, and having catchy themes and a really cool robot with really cool mechanics (at the time) helped a lot. When I was a kid, they didn't air the last 4-5 episodes, and kept re-running the series, but one of the local networks, GMA-7, took it upon themselves to re-broadcast the show, along with the last episodes. While the animation and the format didn't really hold up, the story and plot were still fairly strong, and up to today, I still consider it one of the best mecha shows I've ever watched.

First anime that I watched in its entirety: Princess Sarah

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xp2amj_a-little-princess-sarah-opening_shortfilms

This was the anime that not only I finished first, but when I started to realize that I love Japanese animation because it's so varied. This was a very melodramatic drama series, but I loved it exactly because it was melodramatic. No US-based cartoon series had a genre like it. And because it was a continuous series, rather than a set of one-shots that was fairly prevalent of 80's and 90's shows, you literally were waiting impatiently for the next episode to air. I was able to watch more World Masterpiece Theater series after this, like Dog of Flanders, Heidi, Polyanna and Remi, but Princess Sarah will be my first and favorite.

Anime that completely got me into the subculture: Akazukin Chacha

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3l24H0eizdY

I was never a big fan of shounen anime like Dragonball, or Yuyu Hakusho (though I loved Flame of Recca), but I really loved drama and comedy series. And Akazukin Chacha was a slam dunk.

If you haven't seen or read the series yet, look it up. It's one of my favorite comedy anime series, and the quality holds up until now. The premise is essentially a really wacky mix of fairy tale tropes set to a unique brand of silly comedy. It also doesn't help that the series conjures up the silliest-looking eyes I've ever seen in all of anime whenever they have funny scenes.

First anime would probably be Pokemon, haha.

But the first anime that I really considered my intro into the anime world would be Claymore. An older friend showed the scene where a certain character with the same name as me had her head cut off.....I was in 4th grade. Strangely enough, I ended up liking the show enough to finish it.

I thought I answered this before . . . .
It was either Galaxy Express 999 or Star Blazers.... Robotech wasn't out yet...

There was no Anime in North Dakota where I grew up so I didn't see one until I moved to Seattle in 1980...



There were shows that were produced by Rakin/Bass that were probably made in Japan, on national TV back in the 60' and 70's but these shows were not anime.

It was either Evangelion, Speed Racer, or Dragonball Z. A lot of anime is dubbed in Philippines when I was little, so it's hard to remember specifically.
