There were multiple things I watched beforehand, but it was Death Note that actually made me want to watch more. It is a good story, though now I understand how self-absorbed it is. I can't decide which character is worse in that regard, but I definitely prefer Light, as L is too fake.

I got into anime because I was really hyped for the game Tatsunoko vs Capcom. I never expected it to actually come to America so when it was announced I wanted to get familiar with some of the characters. I started off with a little show called Casshern Sins which is gorgeous and amazing. I immediately fell in love and continued on to watch Karas, which was good but not quite as mindblowing. Turns out the Casshern/Roll combo was my main in TvC (great game btw).

I may be one of the few, but when Cowboy Bebop first came to North America, that's what got me into anime.
I think it was the first anime series I watched all the way through.

well Pokemon, Card Captors, Yu-Gi-Oh, Dragon Ball Z and digimon were anime I watched when I was young and Yu-Gi-Oh was the first I watched subtitled as online streaming was becoming more common but I would say the first thing to really get me into anime was tsubasa chronicle because I knew about it's connection to Card Captors bit I didn't know about the whole clamp universe until I properly looked into it and delved more into anime.

Long story short, Gurren Lagann. This is what broke the ice for me in getting a lot more interested in anime and it encouraged me to watch a lot more. Before watching Gurren Lagann, I barely watched any and thought I'd never like the majority of anime out there. Oh how the times have changed.

Casshern was my main in TvC as well before I even knew who he was lol. And ya Casshern Sins is amazing, definitely one of my favs.

Akira and demon city shinjuku were the first anime that I watched that got me into it. I saw them both on the same day (first Akira then Demon city right after) on the SciFi channel back when I was 8 or so. Started my love for Seinen too.
