Scrapped Princess deserves mention for being the first subtitled anime I watched, and made me realize how limited my view of anime was, because there was a lot of anime that wasn't available in the states.

Air also deserves mention because it introduced me to the concept know as "the feels"

Next up, we have an classic 2-girl romance. Where the main lead is an awesome, super cool, nice guy who's tormented by his evil super-star older sister, and he has the childhood friend and the forgotten child hood friend as his love interests. The one problem is he forgot about both of them....because HOLY SHIT ONE IS A VAMPIRE THE OTHER IS A WEREWOLF!
Like, i did not see that shit coming, and they only said it in the finale

That one sounds like Tsukihime; maybe.


It was not, but it was probably a Tsukihime clone/copy. I mean, I would love to aplaud myself for watching something as OG as that, but nah.This one was more like Campione style meh.

Maybe Princess Resurrection or Renkin San-kyuu Magical Pokaan?

I've never actually seen any of these... I'm grasping at straws now...

I guess it would be Ranma 1/2. Before I saw it, I never really saw anime as the diverse medium it is, and it probably would've never become a big hobby for me if I never saw it. It was the first "old" anime I had ever been introduced to, and through it, I was introduced to a plethora of anime: Inuyasha, Akira, Cowboy Bebop, and several others. Anime became something that I could talk about with my friends, and they introduced me to the likes of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Neon Genesis Evangelion,, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Sword Art Online. Before I saw Ranma, anime to me was just weird Asian Cartoons. While that still may hold true, it's also a lot more.

oooh, Love me Ranma 1/2. Their is a reason I own all the seasons and OVA's, and the only other to have such an honor is Dragonball Z.

For me it wasn't old school, it was one of those awkward periods where the Anime I was interested in was those odd ball Harems and Ecchi's, a whole new damned world.

Then I watched the first episode of Ranma 1/2, thinking "woah, genderbending the anime? Must watch" and ended up with a "Holy crap! The action! The comedy! THE PANDA!

Kuno, Ryuoga....all those fellows introduced over the seasons are awesome characters in their own right.

Mine is also a KyoAni rom-com, but probably not the one everyone is thinking of.

I watched the DUB of Angel Beats! a couple of years ago, back when I was only just starting anime (i.e. just watching all of the anime [including Elfen Lied in one night ] on Netflix) and I thought it was fucking RADICAL.

I laughed, I cried, I saw flaws that I didn't know where flaws, it was great.

Looking back (and having watched Clannad and After-Story), I recognize that it wasn't a good show by any means, but it was one of the show I watched and went, "Wow, that was a lot more than just fighting and needless gore".

For that reason, Angel Beats! will always have a special place in my heart as that shitty show that I love.

Madoka Magica and Hunter x Hunter. Both of them have shown me to never judge an anime at first glance. Both have deconstructed their respective genres succesfully and both are shockingly amazing.

Because I must compulsively correct people on the internet: Angel Beats! was by P.A. Works, not KyoAni.

Good story though! I haven't gotten around to seeing it yet but I'm looking forward to it.

Goddammit, I am sorry. I honestly thought it was KyoAni. Thank you for correcting me, I know how you feel.

I thought the general story was decent and the premise at least was interesting, but the show kind of shot itself in the foot near the end. Not knowing what a bad ending was helped.

I would still say to give it a try. There are worse things that people love.

Hayate no Gotuku definitely changed how I felt about anime in general. I pretty much watched Shounen, action, mecha and that sort of anime, but after watching that series, I really broadened my horizons, I have that to thank for my current addiction to Sket Dance

I'll definitely get around to it; I also picked up the ending at some point, so I won't be too let down when it happens.

for me it was Welcome to the NHK, it changed anime from something that was just kickass entertainment into something that I could actually relate to on a deep personal level
