I guess I started when DBZ was being broadcasted on UPN Saturday mornings. Of course I was weirded out by it so I only saw bits and pieces of the show but my curiosity got the better of me so I recorded a couple episodes and that was it. When it came to collecting I meant to only get DBZ and Gundam Wing but it sort of went WAY beyond that which has led me to my very impressive collection.

I started watching anime when Toonami first came out back on March 17 1997!!!! That is I become a anime fan/otaku to this day!!!

I guess it started when I didn't even know what anime was and then I started watching Powerpuff Girls Z. Then my brother introduced me to Sailor Moon. And then I started to watch anime. I guess that's what happened.

In 6th grade, I met this girl who was obsessed with an anime called Black Butler. She would always talk to me about it, which got very annoying because I didn't know what the fuck she was talking about. She said to go watch an episode and I agreed. I watched more and more animes...

It was back in 2005, youtube was still new and exciting back then. Want to know how new and exciting it was? People would look at each other's favorites. Anyway I was looking at a friends favorites and there was a Samurai X video in there, things just kind of spiralled out of control from there.

Didn't really take off until Toonami, but before that I was borrowing tapes from my cousin for stuff like Fist of the North Star, Dragonball, etc.

Like many I was just a kid watching cartoons on Toonami in the late 90's/early 00's. Started with DBZ and Ronin Warriors followed by Gundam Wing and Tenchi Muyo/Universe.

Though it may not have been till Cowboy Bebop when I started thinking of anime as separate from other animated shows.

I started like most fans of today. Started with Toonami when I was around 4-5 years old. It started with Naruto and Gundam mostly but I eventually branched out and discovered the anime world. Lost interest in my repeat year of high school since I had to fix some things up in my life and focus on school.

Started watching agian last year after reading through some early volumes of Naruto. Got nostalgic, turned on some Naruto, Eureka Seven, etc and did a bunch of rewatches. Got a membership on CR and Funi and the rest was history.
