Born and raised in USA. First memory I have of anime was bits and pieces of older shows like sailor moon and inuyasha that I saw around the 5th grade or so. The times they showed that had I found was usually when I had to go to school or long after I had to go to bed. It didn't take long before I learned it was called anime, but it wasn't until I started college that I really had a chance to delve into the medium full force. Of course starting off with shows like naruto and bleach then quickly moving toward shows like speed grapher, usagi drop, tasogare otome x amnesia, desert punk, gosick, and no game no life.

I remember being three or four, and when my mother was having a tough pregnancy with my brother, she would watch Sailor Moon, among other shows. I would watch it with her sometimes, laying next to her on the couch to try and comfort her in her pain.

Years later, saw some shows like Digimon, Dragon Ball, but was never really a fan of anime.

Saw a movie on TV, by Studio Ghibli, who I didn't know at the time, Spirited Away, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Then later saw Howl's Moving Castle.

In the end though, what finally got me hooked and became a fan of anime was scrolling through Netflix and seeing Fullmetal Alchemist. I had heard of it before, so I decided heck, lets try it.

Yeeeeeeah that is when the addiction started.

HEYO! I'm from the everlasting cold and icy tundra known as "Canada" (as said by one guy I met in a video game once lol), and I got into anime accidentally, my sister decided to watch a show on Netflix... it was "Fruits Basket". I loved it. From then on I watched "Baka and Test" (or something like that it's been a long time), which I also picked up from my younger sister. I decided to branch out on my own and found SAO. FIRST season had me HOOKED! (emphasis on FIRST season WHY SAO WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY, GGO was pretty sick tho) and have been slowly drained of my social life as I continue to decline in addiction.



Wish me luck - Soot

Western US. Through video games. I eventually found JRPGs was a genre I enjoyed, and eventually started watching anime because JRPGs and anime share a lot of common tropes. Being part of the Pokemon generation probably helped.

That said, I legitimately don't remember which series I watched first. i want to say it was FMA 2003; that is, ignoring Pokmeon, Digimon, and other 4kids dubs that just happened to be on Saturday morning.

I'm from England.

When I got into anime would have been when I was 8 or so, my sister showed me Spirited Away, which I adored, after that she bought a studio Ghibli box-set, and we would watch all the movies multiple times.

Been hooked to anime since then, but it wasn't until a year or so ago I started getting really into it.

I am from the USA and Germany (born in New England, spent a good bit of time in Germany, then came back to USA for University).

I started anime well before I knew anime even existed. I thought Pokémon, Sailor Moon and Naruto were just... American Animations *gasp!* (I was ashamed of myself too). Ever since then I have really liked it, with Bleach, Pokémon and Naruto being my entrance point.

USA, Planet Earth.

I've been watching anime since before I knew the distinction between Cartoons (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Megas XLR, Avatar, Martin Mystery, Justice League) and Anime (DBZ, Naruto, Pokemon, Yugioh, Beyblade, Digimon). I actually got into anime after reading the Full Metal Alchemist manga during freshman year of high school.

By a stroke of luck, I stumbled across Toonami on September of the same year it was revived and guess what was on at the time? Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I was instantly blown away by its epicness. However, Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru and Sword Art Online were the catalysts that opened my eyes into the vast land of anime, and here I am today.

I'm from America, I got into anime when I was about 10 or 11 years old. I went to the library and was looking at movies, when I found Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase. I thought it was a cartoon, and that it would be perfect to watch on Halloween night sense it was about vampires. Boy was I wrong.

Later on, I found the Manga section in the library, it was hidden away in an odd place (probably so little kids couldn't find it). They had Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase, so read I read it. When I was younger I had a hard time understanding what I was reading, so the pictures in Mangas really helped me. This is probably why I kept reading manga after I finished Moon Phase. I later figured out that most of these mangas were turned into shows, called anime.

Once I got Wi-Fi, I slowly transitioned from preferring manga, to anime.
