I came across it. In the beginning I didn't even realize that I was watching anime, I just thought they were cartoons that looked a little bit differently. I think my first anime was pokemon and then yu gi oh. And then it just started from there. Not really sure when I realized it was anime though. Probably when me and my sister started looking things up in the internet.

I don't get it.


Haha...well....I happened to see some AMVs from stuff like breaking benjamin and those kind of bands back in the days.
Alot of anime AMVs appeared, like Naruto, Bleach etc. So I happened to come across all of these anime, and chose to pick one of them and give it a shot.
AND NOW ANIME IS ALL OVER ME

I stubbled on an anime in my younger years which got me thinking about it. I liked the art style was the main draw at first [no pun intended muahahaha]. Then later on I got more into the Japanese cultural aspect of Anime as well as the story genres and just the entire thing in general. Had some dry spells between that but am fully and totaly addicted now.

Hmm let me see .... watched anime with my older cousins when i was a kid ( all chinese dub through ), after my family moved to another city, i stopped watching anime for a while until i saw Cardcaptor Sakura on a chinese tv channel, then stopped watching anime again until middle school where my shonen crazed friend introduced me to Naruto, One piece and Bleach. Then highschool come and i turn to videogames until college where i rediscover anime.

I guess I just happened to. I think my brother bought a Ranma 1/2 VHS from the comic store or something. From then on I loved it!

Prior to that though, I had watched stuff like Thunder Cats (which is "American" but actually animated by a Japanese studio).

hello minna! My story:

I was looking for a cool wallpaper back at the end of 2008 for my computer. So I went to google and typed in 'cool guy with sword' and got a nice picture. Put it as my wallpaper, went to ourdesktops.com, showed my desktop off there. First comment: "Awesome. Bleach is awesome". Went to google, typed in bleach, downloaded last two episodes (somewhere around 190 at the time) from an *AHUM* download site which was the first google result, have been an anime addict ever since. XD

So it just kind of happened with me, basically :3


These Bleach stories really gets me :]

All I had in my bedroom when I was 12 or so was a tv with an antannae. I only got two channels with that, and the local broadcast station just happened to be airing the Saiyan saga of DBZ. And in the rest of our house we only had basic cable (so no Cartoon Network).

Flash forward a couple years, and we got a better cable package that included Cartoon network plus my room got wired for it. By that point the few episodes of DBZ I had caught I thought I had dreamed up or something. People flying around shooting energy waves at each other was just so awesome and alien to me. But then Toonami started, and all that awesomeness came back to me... Plus I got into Sailor Moon, Tenchi Muyo, and all the rest of the anime that was airing on that block. In addition to Pokemon, which the craze had just hit and the anime was huge. My fate in anime was sealed that year. I was literally running home from the bus so I could start watching tv at 3:30 every day

I've been watching anime for a good 10 years now. I would watch anime on TV frequently and my older brother (whose 6 years older) was into anime himself. When we'd go to the video store (back in the day when renting VHS and, later, DVDs was a thing) together, I'd seek out certain anime I watched on TV and so my brother showed me to the anime section. From there I started choosing anime from the section, renting it, watching it and then looking for the next volume.

I remember loving Kiddy Grade, Angelic Layer, Cardcaptor Sakura and Galaxy Angel among others. Of course then my taste matured as I grew older, so I've been through an amount.
