I think it was either DBZ, Pokemon, or Gundam since those were the animes I saw in Cartoon network when i was very little.

Gonna give 2 parts. Cause it was DBZ, Rurouni Kenshin, and Yuyu Hakusho that first got me into anime in general. But it was Fullmetal Alchemist that first got me into watching anime subbed. I couldn't wait for the last 5-10 episodes to air when the show was first being aired on TV, so I managed to find a place to watch them subtitled online. That then led to watching Naruto and Bleach subbed and the rest is history.

Gurren Lagann was the anime that really got me into anime, it was my gateway to the anime world pretty much.

Before that, I would watch shows on Toonami every now and then. Out of all the shows on Toonami I really liked Naruto and one day Toonami/Cartoon Network had a Naruto marathon and I watched it all and got hooked on the series, then Toonami shut down, and I stopped watching anime for a while (Naruto included). Then years later I came across Naruto Shippuden on YouTube and got hooked on it again. I then only watched Naruto Shippuden for like 5 years and nothing else because I thought all other anime was too "weird"

Then when my friend forced me to watch Gurren Lagann about 2 years ago, everything changed.

Omg I'm basically the same. I was going to say YYH, Ruoroni Kenshin, or Sailor Moon. (But come one, of course DBZ is early up there too now that I read your post.) But I was so little and didn't know that they were considered the genre 'anime'. I just considered them cartoons. The first actual thing I watched where my friend told me 'hey watch this anime with me' was Inyuyasha then maybe FMA. Ooh and now that I think about it Cowboy Bebop was also on Adult Swim in the same time so that was close too.....

My memory is so bad I don't think I can remember the sequence of them all but those are generally my early anime days.

Edit: Gah and I just read back someone saying Pokemon. I used to watch that every morning when I was a wee lass as well along with just about everyone else alive, of course.

Mine was probably Dbz because i used to watch it on Cartoon Network/Tonami. But watching Naruto is what really started making me look for more anime lol.

I would say Dragon Ball Z or Gundam Wing or Pokemon would be the most likeliest candidates.
