Post Reply Your first Anime, life story?
Posted 9/1/14
Sailor Moon every morning before school with my father starting when I was around 3, maybe even younger I don't remember. DBZ before school every morning a few years later when I was around 7/8/9. Pokemon I watched religiously then too, I still have the Pokemon Movie on VHS. Yu-Gi-Oh on Saturday Mornings and basically everything on Toonami when I was like 10/11 yrs old.

I'm a lifer.

I was 9 years old and just happen to be bored on a Saturday and saw Dragonball. I didn't know it was Anime at the time and loved how it looked. I was with my younger brother and Dad and I'm so glad my father was asleep on the couch at the time or he would've changed the channel lol.

I moved onto Pokemon when I was 11 and then my teen years I saw Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Serial Experiments Lain. (Weird selection but it shaped my tastes for the future)

Also my first subbed Anime was Elfen Lied and I was 17. Blew me away and opened up the door into giving subs a chance. (Now I prefer them over Dubs usually)

Speed Racer. But i'm not counting that because to me, that was just regular cartoons as a kid.

My first anime was Girls Bravo. An ecchi harem. I think it was back in 2011. I was probably 18/19, staying in PA at the time for school and i ended up marathoning it over 2 days. I remember turning off my computer to go to sleep, but i ended up watching more on my phone
The reason i watched this was because i saw it in the history in netflix, from my brother. and i joked about him watching it and being a pervert, although he didn't even watch it. He was watching Death Note. Since then i fell in love with anime.

Ghost in the Shell (the opening left an impression on me around when it first aired on Adult Swim back in 2003 or so). It's the one I most acknowledge anyway, besides perhaps FLCL.

First anime ever was Princess Mononoke. But what really got me into anime was Death Note back in 06.

Like many others on this thread, my first anime was Dragonball Z. I even remember the episode; it was the one with Goku facing Burter and Jeice from the Ginyu Force. Been hooked on it ever since.

Sailor Moon, when it use to air on tv. I ended up telling my friends about it and we were hooked! We would pretend to be the characters, buy sailor moon cards and collect images from the internet. This was back in my middle school years, I think my friends at the time have lost interest in anime all together now, but it was fun times.

When I was in middle school DBZ was the thing to watch. I tried to get into it, but the overkill of the cliffhangers made me lose interest extremely quick. There was probably a show or two on Adult Swim I watched, but I don't remember them well enough to include them.

Then I think I watched something on Netflix, just because I'd figured it was the easiest outlet to watch it since I wasn't about to go pay for something I wasn't even sure I liked. But considering I'm a huge RPG guy when it comes to gaming, I figured the art styles should be similar enough to keep my attention. Still can't name the first show there either.

My memory on what came first is hazy, but I even opted to Amazon's Instant Video to see what offerings were there. The first show (and one of the maybe 3 or 4 I've even used Amazon for) was Clannad. But I hated the subtitles, I just couldn't do the subtitle thing initially. So the next step was finding something "dubbed", and of course I had no clue what to look for.

So the next day I found myself at Best Buy, where I ended up buying K-On (research on popular anime I think had me make the choice). I then bought The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (though to this day I have yet to complete the series lol), and ever since have been a pretty big fan.

Of course I'd not watched it with anyone else since nobody I knew was into it, and when my roommate found out it led to a couple weeks of harassment. He thought the premise of K-On was stupid (and probably though I was a creep lulz), but to this day I watch it alone. Still don't know anyone who's into it.

It's diminished as far as watching in recent months, but when I do watch TV it's normally an anime. Hell, I just bought the K-On Manga series (first manga bought), and my figure/merch collection grows monthly, but I digress. T
