Does anyone remember the first Anime that you ever watched? Where you were watching it, and with anyone else? Whats your Anime story?

I'll go first:

The first Anime I ever watched was on the Saturday morning Anime block on sci-fi channel in the early 90's. I was on a camping trip with the family and it was raining so our parents let us use the TV in the popup trailer while they went out. My brother and I turned on the TV and were mesmerized by Iria: Zeiram the Animation, and when our parents came back they were like what the heck are you watching?

Ever since I've been a fan of Anime, and watched it every saturday morning. Sadly I never knew of conventions growing up so never got to attend any.

I first watched Blue Exorcist, my sister had let me borrow her manga and I didnt want to wait for her to buy the rest to see what happened.
Ever since then almost every night before I go to sleep I watch anime. Ive loved it ever since and will continue to love it most likely all my life.

I remember going into Woolworths after getting my first ever paycheck and buying a Studio Ghibli film (Could of been Princess Mononoke or Howls Moving Castle) so I guess technically that was my first. However i remember watching the subbed version of Death Note better, and I was totally blown away by it. I was on my lonesome but I was young and in school xd That is the anime that made me watch other animes and here I am now, so addicted

Mine was The Moomins but I don't really remember it because I was so young. What piqued my interest was Naruto and the concept of using energy attacks in a fight that made big explosions. What's even funnier is I've only watched about 1 episode of Naruto all the way through when I caught it on TV. Now there are so many episodes I can't even be bothered to start it.

So I've watched a little bit of Bleach, Naruto, and FMA on Adult Swim before but I'm not going to mention those because they didn't get me into anime.

Earlier this year, I was working out a little. My brother was watching Attack on Titan on Netflix (my barbell and etc are outside his room). While waiting before I started my next set, I watched AoT with my brother. I wasn't particularly interested in AoT itself (though I did enjoy it), but just anime itself.

So not too long after, I got on Netflix, looked for some anime to watch, and just happened to stumble upon Sword Art Online. I enjoyed it very much so, slowly started watching other shows. After watching most of what I found interesting on Netflix, I made this account here. And now about 50-60 series later, I'm watching at least a couple episodes of something a day, finishing a couple series every weekend. I'll be attending my very first convention later this month.

Robotech episodes on TV when I was visiting relatives in California in 1983. Didn't really know about "anime" at the time, just a kid looking for "cartoons" to watch. But it's the first anime I can remember watching.

I think princess mononoke was my first but the anime that really got me into it was higurashi.
Sooooo mind blown after that I haven't stopped watching for years now.
Still looking for something like higurashi if anyone has recommendations.

I pretty much started watching DBZ and Pokemon around the same time, I can't exactly remember which one came first, though. I would always watch both of them with my cousins.

When I was 10 I saw the movie Spirit Away and began watching pokemon and DBZ. Now I feel like I watch nothing but anime.
