When I was 5-year old I started to watch my first Anime Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z, later on I got really into YuGiOh, but after YuGiOh finished on television I never really watched other Anime anymore. Didnt know that it was Anime though, but the first Anime I begun to watch afer all that was Naruto, when I was 7. Naruto got me back into Anime, and I still watch it.

I stopped watching anime altogether for almost a year, but this summer I have been watching attack on titan and it completely rekindled my love for the genre.

Interesting question

I actually saw my first anime when I was like 4. It was a kid's anime movie about witches or something and from that point loved anime ever since. But I kind of fell out of it and "forgot" how much depth anime could have. Elfen Lied brought me back to anime pretty hard and then Full Metal Alchemist solidified it.

<edit> And then of course, Ergo Proxy is the anime I've been searching to re-experience ever since. The actual depth and artistic merit of the anime.

v - oh yah, death note was one among the list that got me back into anime as well. It was really a few series that got me hooked again.

When I was in high school, I went through my Junior and Senior year thinking that I was too cool for anime. So I've been out of the loop from the anime fandom for about six years. It wasn't until sometime last year when I decided to check out a show that my brother told me about: Death Note.

I major in English at school so I'm pretty snobbish when it comes to what kind of shows I'll watch; if the plot is too boring or just plain stupid, I'll write it off as something not worth my time. Death Note was a show that came completely out of left-field. Everything about it was so fascinating: the animation was gorgeous, the music was grand and the execution of the story was sublime. Granted, the show wasn't too deep or super meaningful but it was exciting. I loved (most of) the characters and even tolerated that second half of the series that's usually hated on.

But anyway, Death Note was the gateway show that helped me realize why I loved anime in the first place. Actually, scratch that, it did something even better: it introduced me to the potential of the medium. That's why it will always be one of my most-loved shows.

Same for me! I pretty much blew off anime during Junior High - post college as well because I thought I was too cool for it (despite growing up watching Naruto, Bleach, etc). The main show that got me back into anime was probably Heaven's Lost Property. Despite the fact it's not all that deep, I think it's absolutely hilarious! Which catapulted me into marathoning shows for the past year.

For me it was Madoka Magica. I'm fairly late to the anime scene having only watched Sailor Moon and Black Cat before I found Madoka.

It was attack on titan for me as well. Ever since 2010 onwards, i gave up my hopes for the anime industry because it was bombarded with lot of recycled ideas that we've already seen tons of times in the past and the amount of fan service anime keeps on just increasing. Thanks to attack on titan, i got back into anime and made me remembered why i loved the anime in the first place. I just wish that there will be more original anime and successful adaptions.

Inuyasha, of all things.

Back when Toonami wasn't hidden away on Sunday mornings, I used to casually watch the shows they aired. I vaguely remember watching shows like Yu-Gi-Oh and Wolf's Rain, but the one show that really caught my interest was Inuyasha. I remember staying up late to watch it on school nights, and I was fairly young (and stupid) so I probably didn't get much out of it.

I stopped bothering with anime entirely for a while, though I'd occasionally be reminded about it. Until finally at the end of my junior year of high school something triggered enough nostalgia in me to make me re-watch Inuyasha out of curiosity. Because I had such a vague memory of it, I felt rather childish for watching a "cartoon" meant for young kids. After the first episode, I almost stopped. Second; kept going. The more I watched the more I realized that there was actual story and development, even if only enough to be casually appreciated, but it was still way more than I ever expected.

Watched the whole first series in about two or three weeks and thought to myself, "maybe there's more to this media form than I thought". But rather than take recommendations from friends or popular websites, I just stumbled upon a Youtube page with a list of anime. One name stood out as unusual, "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya". And thus I begin my first viewing of an amazing series on a whim late at night, and feel in love by the end of the second episode.

Since then it's been an interesting experience slowly exploring this fun, unusual, and occasionally beautiful art form.
