Post Reply So where are you from, and how did you get into anime?
Posted 7/7/15
I'm from the U.S.A, specifically California.

I got into anime after chancing upon Fruits Basket

I don't remember how I found it. All I remember is that the first episode made me cry - which really impressed me and compelled me to watch the whole show. From there I actively looked for more of this weird "anime" stuff and that led me further down the rabbit hole.

First anime watched excluding stuff that was americanized was Akira. Prior to then had seen others as well, but nothing to get me into anime and manga as a genre. Prior to this, anime was just cartoons. Some violent.

Well, that changed probably 15 years ago. Went to a movie rental place back in days of vhs. Was browsing and peeked over at this one small shelf in back. Was a VHS with pic of a guy in a red jacket walking towards a sci fi motorcycle. Watched it, rest is history!

I'm from America, I got into anime when I was in High School. I started watching anime because I only find a few American shows interesting, so i started watching foreign shows. My first notable anime was Sword Art Online and got really into anime after that.

I'm from Texas. I enjoyed DBZ, FMA, Gundam 00, and Death Note when I was younger, but did not start to watch anime as a hobby until a friend suggested Anohana.

I'm from Connecticut. Got into anime in the beggining of eighth grade, at the time I was watching pewdiepie and he started playing these anime sorta looking games (I dont know what theyre called) and I sorta got interested in anime but never watched any. I started watching some of my childhood cartoons in netflix. Shows like: 6teen and avatar which then eventually led me to watch anime. I started watching some anime in netflix such as Rosario vampire, highschool of the dead, and other ecchi animes. Initially I was thinking that this is what anime is, ecchi since thats all I saw. But as soon as i watched shows like: clannad, clannad after story, fruits baskets, and angel beats, I realized that wasnt the case and theres more to anime.
