I first watched Dragon Ball when I was 6-7, because my older (by 11 years) brother was watching it.
at the time it was just another, (But much cooler) toon. later I ended up watching through the entirety of the series, including Dragon Ball Z.
I didn't really think of myself as an, "Anime fan." I just liked Dragonball.
I watched a good amount of anime on and off after that, but always dubbed.
around a year ago I watched FMA and switched to only watching sub. I've been completely hooked since then.

I was introduced to it by my bro.
So I sorta chose? But also, "Just happened to watch it." Not really sure which would be a more fitting answer.

Since I watched it when I was younger, but sort of got out of it. A couple of years ago a friend told me to watch High School of the Dead. I guess I decided to take his advice. Since then, it got me back into it again, and continued watching anime.

Generic DBZ as a kid on Toonami backstory. Then like 3 years ago I decided I would watch Dragon Ball and rewatch DBZ after buying Budokai 3 for nostalgia purposes. Then I had Toonami on by accident and got hooked on Soul Eater. Marathoned it on Netflix, looked for something similar found Fairy Tail on Netflix and marathoned that. Ended up exchanging my Netflix account for a CR account and I've been here simulcasting a bunch of shows since. I think that means I chose it.

I chose to watch it! I had watched Naruto since it first came out on TV. At that age I didn't have a concept on anime I thought everything was a cartoon as I was a kid and hadn't learned yet but a few years ago I eneded up deciding to re-watch all of naruto and at the time shippudden had been out for a while so I watched those too. As I watched through naruto again I found the Crunchyroll app on Xbox 360 and I was opened to a whole new world and ever since I live on anime. Don't even know what regular TV is anymore aside from Game of Thrones

It just happened. I didn't even know that it's called "anime" until I was twelve or thirteen, 6-7 years after I started watching. I didn't know that it's Japanese until around then, too.

Oh man, it sucks to see your generation having to run home to watch an anime show.
I take comfort that even if miss the show CR will play back it for me

Yes started with Pokemon a lot of DBZ early Naruo but CN had adult swim then got ON Demand which was AOD in the early days then became Funimation OD but then watched Funi Online for many years! Actually watched a lot on ANN which led to CR too!


Not trying to be a grammer Nazi but you are using WAY too much acronyms for just one sentence, I get the DBZ part but try to say the show's name next time for others

You made the right choice, CR is totally better than Netflix.

Welcome to the Darkside my friend..

Just one of those childhood things that a lot of us had to experience if we spend some time watching and exploring T.V. shows

That's actually an interesting question.

I started watching Death Note because I heard the premise and thought it sounded interesting, then after finishing it I started looking for more of that medium. Soooo...a little bit of both?

When I watched my first anime, I didn't even knew it was an anime. So, you can say it's just happened.
