North Carolina.

I grew up watching Toonami. I always preferred shows like Dragonball Z, Gundam Wing and Yu Yu Hakusho compared to many of the Nickelodeon alternatives around the same time period.

I don't understand what the "Where are you from" part helps answer the question O_o

I'm from England, don't live there now. and I got into anime from getting into trouble. My parents took away my games because i was bad in school and so i found anime on T.V for my spare time

I've watched Miyazaki movies since I was in preschool so I guess I was almost born into it. The first movie I remember watching was Totoro. I was 3. Mitazaki movies are still favorites of mine and I have a boxed collection. My grandma grew up in a very Japanese background and only speaks Japanese and Taiwanese, so that helped immerse me in the culture as well. It has always been the culture for me, not just anime or any specific thing made in Japan. My grandma is my adoptive mother if that helps.

I first started paying attention to anime more in around elementary school. Pokemon, of course. But I didn't consider that anime back then, so I guess junior high with Love Hina and Inuyasha. My best friend introduced me to these.

Well my first manga was monster musume at the recommendation from someone I knew. I didn't get into anime until over a year later though. A little over a year ago I was thinking about a show I'd seen on TV once that for some reason stuck in my memory. I spent a while trying to figure out what it was and it was Card Captor Sakura. That was the first anime I watched.

Then I watched a bunch of others including some anime of mangas I had read before. I've been watching anime for a year now.

I'm from the U.S.V.I, and I got in to anime when i first moved to the states.

My first anime is hard to remember, it either was DBZ or Sailor Moon, and something is telling me it's the latter.

I had been religiously avoiding anime and the likes to avoid being lumped together with others but one day during vacation I was ridiculously bored. I asked one of those really nerdy friends who have stereotypical hobbies, and got a recommendation.

Started watching anime before I knew what anime was. Started with re-runs of Kimba (Leo) the Lion on CBN in the early 80's, then Robotech. That of course followed with Transformers, which in turn led me to comic books when I was about 8. In the comic store I "discovered" Gundam and Macross. The rest, as they say, is history.

Now I have taken multiple pseudo-breaks from anime over the years, but off and on I have been watching it a long time. Mostly into newer anime these days.

When I was a kid I watched it all Digimon, Yu-gi-oh Rurouni Kenshin, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing and all the other Toonami shows. Id stay up all night just to watch all the early morning anime like Big-Oh and Trigun.
Then I started reading a lot in middle school standard stuff Naruto Bleach. Then i had a lull in my interest until I decided to watch AOT on Netflix and was immediately infatuated with anime again. After another lull when I didn't have netflix I used a Imaqtipie link to get a free month of CR and watched Parasyte The Maxim which once again sucked me in to the world of anime.

I'm from Moldova.

I had a friend in my school who was running with his hands at the back and shouting rasengan or chidori . I was curious why he liked Naruto so much and I started to watch it. I guess that's all (^_^)
