Everyone discovered anime at a different age. We can discuss how it was different then from now.

Always been exposed to anime, I just didn't know it was anime, i mean all cartoons are cartoons when I was a kid.

The age where I consciously want to watch anime is around 15, after watching spirited away, I was just like... "I want to watch more of this stuff."

I'm 26 now...

As far back as I can remember, the very first anime I think I watched was Ronin Warriors. 22 now and still watching it.

I've watched cartoons all my life, which includes series that we know as anime these days but it wasn't until my teenage years that I discovered what anime was.
And not until my late teens and early 20's where I discovered that a LOT of the cartoons I watched during my childhood were actually made in Japan.

Been watching anime since the late 80's so a good 25 years or so. Don't remember the exact time I started watching.

I discovered anime at the age of 7. If only I grew up in the 80s.

!993, Sailor Moon. I still enjoy Sailor moon



I remember being really sad that Sailor Moon S episodes would only be available on cable, lol.

After cutting my teeth on Sailor Moon, I moved on to Rurouni Kenshin
OH, sweet nostalgia

I started off watching Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, ect when I was 4 but didn't actually know what anime was.
Soooo I'd say I was about 8? Maybe 7 when I first learned what anime was.

My first real anime experience was with the Pokemon series when I was about 8 or 9. I remember thinking: "Wow, why is the art so weird?" or something along those lines. Little did I know that I was destined to grow up into a full-blown otaku ...

I went on a hiatus when toonami was pulled. When I was in eight grade, Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood reintroduced anime to me. I don't even remember why I started watching it.

I found anime when I was either 4 or 5, one day I spent the night at my cousins house, he was watching TV instead of playing video games. So I sat down and asked him "What is this?" and he said "Dragon Ball" and I watched it, I thought it was pretty cool.

I later found out what channel it was on (Cartoon Network), then next Saturday I tuned to that channel and watched it again, then I repeated every week, I found my favorite show.

This is how I got into Anime, now I have been a anime junkie for 14 years.

Kind of all three. I know I saw anime before I was 12, there was some anime I really liked in my teens years, but I don't think I would self-identify as an anime fan until my twenties.

I use to watch Dragonball-Z on the AZN channel, they were so ahead of the episodes in America. I remember watching the Android saga and not understanding the words.
