I started watching anime on Cartoon Network a long time ago looking at Naruto and other anime. Then one day I wanted to see a episode of I think Bobobo online then I saw all these other results in the sidebar of different anime. I started to watch one video then I dug in some more by googling the anime and watching it online and I did it over and over again and after that I got into it.

My brother in law made passing references to some anime that he watched but I always laughed and brushed it off as childish. Then Hulu started putting up episodes of bleach and naruto which were constantly in front of the shows I was looking for in the "recent episodes" page. After a couple weeks of annoyance with scrolling down through them to find what I wanted I decided to watch a couple episodes and see what the fuss was about. About 15-20 episodes later I was totally hooked.

For me, it was the leap in artistic quality, maturity, quirkiness, and sheer awesomeness that attracted me to Anime.
Western animation is too stuck to stereotypes to entertain me, either its raunchy and satirical, kiddy and immature, or something with a good premise, only to be bowdlerized due to parental meddling.
Anime has its cons, but in the end, I still come for more thanks to adventurous plots, attention to detail, and fleshed out, relatable characters.
...
I love it all.

This guy got me into anime:


Let me explain, So I was tired and lazy and since I was "Studying" I was on google images looking at random pictures. I wanted a image of Morgan Freeman as god so I typed "Black God" hoping for Morgan Freeman. Instead i stumble on Black God the manga and quickly fell in love with manga that night. Then a week later I made the jump from manga to anime. So Morgan Freeman got me into anime.

Dragon Ball. Had to be the best show my 5-year old eyes had ever seen. Since then, I grew up searching for anime to watch, before even knowing what the hell it was called. "Well-drawn cartoons" was what I called it for the longest time.

For me it was Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon. They were the only "cartoons" that looked similar to Voltron which was dope!
The fact that the characters looked so different from "American" cartoons, I was instantly hooked! :-)

growing up I watched anime before I knew what anime was let alone the term
everything from the fox kids on Saturdays to toonami on weekdays
but back in 2008 I stumbled across a dvd release at my local walmart of Dragonball z orange set season 6 and that day I bought that set and I thought alright let the nostalgia begin.
so when I got home I started watching it then I saw a trailer for a series called Fullmetal Alchemist and after that one minute trailer I was intrigued
then I hopped on the internet went to funimation.com and saw episodes of this series and was blown away
went and bought that series and the rest is history was hooked for life.
