I guess the late 80s early 90s. The first 2 animes that I ever saw were Voltron and Grimms Fairy Tales. But I didn't actually become aware of what anime was until toonami premiered.

I would say over 25 years, but only seriously for the last 3 or 4 years.

I have been watching anime since Sailor Moon first premiered on TV here in the US. My brother was very into comics and I went with him to a comic shop and I saw some Sailor Moon fan subs for sale mixed in with a lot of other anime VHS tapes and I started talking to the owner and found out that sailor moon was a "Japanese cartoon" and he recommended some other anime that I might like. Not too long after that Sailor Moon was moved to Cartoon Network and I found a lot of anime through Toonami. There was no turning back at that point. lol I still have a big love for magical girls.

Started as a kid in the late 90's with pokemon and dragonball then stopped for years. Then I couldn't sleep one night and ended up watching akame ga kill and parsyte on adult swim. I'm now hoked and have marathoned many series over the past 2 months.

I've been watching for about a year now. I did watch Attack on Titan when it got popular a few years ago, but only watched it until it ended. I didn't seriously watch anime until my friend said I should watch Fairy Tail last summer. Ever since then, I've been hooked.

One of my earliest memories is of watching an English dubbed version of Gatchaman (Not the "Battle of the Planets" dub). However it is only in hindsight that I recognise it as anime; I was far too young at the time to know or care where cartoons were made.

At a guess I would have been 3 or 4, so I have been watching anime for 32+ years.

I watched Pokemon in the late 90s (18 years ago, pretty much). I then watched other anime like Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Trigun in 2002. It wasn't until late 2006/early 2007 where I really found a lasting interest in watching more anime, though.

I think I only really started to get into it when Naruto hit the states.
So about 12 years I think?
