Hey there peeps! I'm Yuki~

So since I started this random topic...I shall mention how I came to love watching anime ~ I actually started watching anime since I was 3 - it was Sailor Moon I watched back then and I continued to watch a few titles over my childhood stage such as Slam Dunk, Detective Conan (Case Closed), Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X), Cardcaptor Sakura and a few others

BUT what makes me really hooked on anime was.....

MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM SEED series! I first watched it when I was 12, and seriously the story line...character designs as well as the catchy opening and ending themes caught my heart! XD Later did I know, I started catching it every single weekend when they air on my local TV channel and then began collecting anime merchandises. After that I began to watch more anime and collect more merchandises lol

Okay, that's all bout me. How bout you guys?

To be honest, I've only started watching anime on regular basis since this past summer. I saw all of Dragonball Z and a bit of One Piece when I was a kid sure, but not until recently did I really get hooked. Say I was late to the party, but I heard all of my friends going on about a show called "Attack on Titan" (apparently it's really popular?) and saying how amazing it was. So I decided to watch it a couple of months ago and I thought it was great. After that I wanted to watch other anime and see if there was any other good shows that I could watch. So I started watching a variety of anime and seeing what my tastes were such as Sword Art Online, Madoka Magic, Toradora, Akame Ga Kill, Black Bullet, Death Note etc.

Out of all of them though, it was Sword Art Online that got me really hooked into anime. Something about it was just so captivating and enjoyable to watch, even though it's arguable I've seen better anime at this point, and I just wanted more anime in my life because of it. I prefer the first half of season 1 over the Alfheim arc (mainly due to the damsel in distress trope and the fact that the fear and tension created by the possibility of death in SAO was gone), and Mother's Rosario made me all teary eyed. I just think it's really good.

So yeah, I'm still relatively new to the whole anime scene, but I'm slowly starting to prefer it to traditional TV. Shorter episodes, visually engaging, more varied etc. I just really love anime since SAO (and Toradora, come to think of it)and I try to get others to watch it as well, as...interesting as that makes people's opinions of me.

What got me hooked? Initially - it was a combination of Love Hina & Neon Genesis Evangelion. Yea, weird combo, I know - but both drew me in when I was 18 in different ways and got me interested in anime

What brought me back after years of basically not watching anime? Blue Exorcist. I saw it randomly "On-Demand" on my cable box when I couldn't sleep one night. Watched one episode after another. That and Fractale helped get me back, but that one was a different - very thinky show.

Too bad ya'll didn't start with Evangelion or something. That would have been perfect with what you said.


I think my sister was watching something and I joined in. I don't like admitting what the something was, but it was when I was 5 and we were overseas. I figured it was just some cartoon. I always preferred the art style - then many years later... Sailor Moon+Tenchi Muyo... I'd say Tenchi set me on the path more given the kind of shows I like though ><

I watched a few things growing up but I really didn't care until recently mostly because I was bored and ran out of stuff to watch... Now I'm stuck in the black void of anime and there is no escape. I've come to terms with it.

On the day I postponed wearing a helmet I walked near another construction zone instead of dawdling for quarters safely 3 blocks away. One firm brick too many hit my head. Ouch.

Honestly I don't remember what my first Anime was it was really long ago but my older brother that's 10 years older than me was a MAJOR Anime fan and so I pretty much just watched/read all his hand me downs. That's how I got into it Anime and Manga.

hmm i'd have to say it started with sailor moon, tenchi really did me in as well as ronin warriors, but ruroni kenshin really drew the last straw . during my high years didn't really pay much attention to it after I graduated and been working five days a week minimum I got back into it since I work a late shift and been watching thousands upon thousands of episodes every years after watching bamboo blade which sparked my interest again

Grew up watching DBZ on the television as a kid, yu-gi-oh afterwards never considered as anime but as a cartoon show though...
At the age of 17 I found the teamfourstar abridged series on youtube, one of the "dubbers" was starting an abridged series on Code Geass which made wonder what the show was about. It grabbed my attention and like aliens abducting cows in North America it took me to the world of anime ... and well... Code Geass ->Guilty Crown->Clannad->...
