When I was about 5 watching Pokemon and Yugioh on KidsWB. Dragonball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Rurouni Kenshin when I was about 7. But I didn't really start experiencing the medium until I was about 13.

The first anime I watched was Astro Boy when I was super little. I didn't get heavily into it until I discovered Sailor Moon when I was 11 or 12.

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...



^This, and more of this.^ Except I was not fifteen when I started deliberately looking for anime, dial it back three years and you'll have the right age. Animated images are fascinating...

i was 6 or 7 and i found anime by randomly watching things on demand ( we had time Warner cable at the time) and i found this anime called Princess Resurrection and decided to watch it. It was my first ever an anime, It looked cool to me back then but looking at it now, it kinda sucks.

Learned about anime when I was around 10 when I saw Sailor Moon manga in the book store and thought 'Hey, you read that book backwards! Cool!' I picked one up and then I got hooked, and I decided to get more into anime and manga.

I was about 10 or 11, Fox actually started playing anime on the Saturday morning line up. They played Escaflowne for a few episodes and then cut it. My dad and I were hooked and actually went and found the VHS to rent. Fox had totally butchered it and when I got to see it in its unedited, subtitled, Japanese glory, I was addicted. We then found Record of Lodoss war and those two were my first experiences with Anime. RoLW was especially great for me because I had soon after started playing Dungeons and Dragons with my friends and named my Elf Wizard Deedlit.

Been watching anime before I could remember thanks to my older brother. But my most memorable moment for watching anime was when I was 8 and I watched Case Closed in the middle of the night.

I was in first grade and it was Pokemon- then later in 3rd grade toonami stuff like DBZ Gundam Zoids (also Yugioh not on toonami though). I started watching One Piece in 5th or 6th grade I woke up at like 5:30 Saturday mornings to watch that and Shaman King. Then Naruto in 7th or 8th grade. Then stopped watching anime all together in 9th grade mostly because toonami jetstream went down and toonami came on tv on saturday nights and it seemed like every other week I was busy on Saturday so I couldn't keep up. Then one day in college I wondered if I could find the end of Skypia arc for One Piece and I found it and started watching anime again.

It was before 10. Back then we didn't even know it was called anime. First ones were Speed Racer (Mach Go Go Go), Battle of the Planets (Gatchaman), Voltron (Beast King Golion), the one that hooked me completely was Robotech (Macross, Southern Cross, Genesis Climber Mospadea)

About less than 1
I never knew what anime was until I was 12-13 but I've always been watching it without even knowing.
I don't remember my first anime though, I think it's rather pokemon or sailor moon.
(I never knew what sailor moon was until I was 12 when I saw it on a girl's binder. I always thought it was a dream)
