Tales of Zestiria the X episode 8. Normally, i'd say Pokemon but the one that truly got me was Soul Eater.

Just a heads up that I've modified this thread since there's already a longstanding thread for posting what you watched today. Please use that existing thread for posts about that: /forumtopic-679289/post-the-anime-youve-watched-today

The main focus of this thread is now just "What's the first ever anime show you watched that got you into anime" -- which has been done before, but not in a while.

Toss up between Guyver:Out of Control (OVA movie) or Macross: "Do you remember Love?"

First thing i watched today was the Nanatsu no Taizai signs of holy war ova raw. I couldn't wait for subs any longer!
Before i knew what anime was i watched Pokemon, Card Captors, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX,Sailor Moon and some Ghibli movies.
They led me to watching Naruto which was the first anime i watched knowing it was anime. i was around 9 or 10.

Oh, I've finally found the first old anime show I'd ever seen.



It was called Kum Kum

The next one was called, The Legend of the Four Kings.

I wanna say it was Naruto or Bleach, but it could have been Bobobo as well. Something on Toonami/adult swim

Not counting DBZ, Pokemon and a little bit of Sailor Moon. I would say what actually got me into anime is 'Bleach'.

I was really into Pokemon when I was a kid, but the first anime I saw when actually looking for anime was Shugo Chara. God, I was obsessed with Shugo Chara. I couldn't shut up about it if I tried.

I have always been into anime without realizing that it was called 'anime'. Like most people I started with watching Pokemon but also Digimon and Hamtaro since the beginning of elementary school. Even as a kid, I always knew those shows where different from western cartoon, but never knew the difference. Despite that I loved the style of anime, even some of my favorite western cartoon shows were inspired but either anime or asian style themes: 'Teen Titans', Avatar the Last Airbender, Xiolin Showdown, Mulan just to name a few. I even watched a few episodes of Random anime on Toonamine late at night when nobody was around like Naruto and Tenchi Muyo.

Sadly my family got rid of cable when I was in fourth grade and was unable to watch these shows. It wasn't until my second year of junior high that I got back into anime, thanks to youtube. One of my favorite Youtubers mentioned a show called Azumanga Daioh and said it was one of his favorite shows. Curious, I took to Youtube and Binged watched the entire series. I loved it, and from then on I read comments on the videos with suggestions for other anime like 'Lucky Star', which led to other shows.

Sorry that I am rambling but talking about a first anime has always been a personal thing for me. I have always enjoyed anime even without know what it was and still do to this day. I have met a lot of interesting people through the anime community some good and some bad, and made several friends because of our common interest in anime outside of the internet. Anime has brought me so much enjoyment, that I wanted to share.

Anyway, Blah, Blah, Blah, Answer to the Question: Pokemon was probably my first anime, but Azumanga Daioh is my first anime knowing what anime is... does that make sense?
