I'm curious to know about some people of how they started watching anime.



1. What anime inspired you to watch more anime or other types?

I started with Naruto on toonami after Naruto had ended I started seeing other types of anime, I have seen other anime movies forgot the names but it was fairly old about a girl with like a rabbit creature not sure, maybe you guys can refresh my memory.

2. What year did you start watching anime?
It was around 2004.

Ugh well I watched Naruto, Dragon ball z, Pokemon, Beyblades and One piece as a kid but I didn't think they were Japanese lol. I started actively looking for anime to watch after watching Clannad in 2010-11 I think, I don't know.

1. I remember watching Voltron: Defender of the Universe and Akira in the 80s, I think? I have always had an interest in animation. I do know that later on the films Ninja Scroll(I snuck and watched this with a friend) and Princess Mononoke were a few favorites that really inspired me to watch more anime.

2. So maybe it was mid 80s to early 90s. I cannot truly remember.

1. I watched anime a lot as a child. I watched Pokemon, Yugioh etc. I just didn't know it was anime. I watched Naruto in high school and saw random anime like Elfen Lied, Shuffle, Death Note etc. But it wasn't until a year or two ago I started watching a lot of anime a lot of the time.

Did you have to live in Japan to watch anime at that time?

I have vague memories of Dragon Ball Z from like, 1998 or 1999. And I watched a lot of Pokemon, Digimon, Beyblade, and Yugioh in the early 2000's. I guess you could say I've been watching anime for as long as I can remember. I got really into it in 2013 though.

1. My mate at Japanese school made me watch an episode of Angel Beats on his psp. Blew my mind that there was other shit than naruto, bleach etc which was the only stuff I knew back in the day.

2. 2010 apparently. feel like I've been watching it a lot longer though.

1. Venus Wars. It was kind of crap, but I was a little boy, so I enjoyed the explosions... So sue me.
2. Not sure of the exact date, but it was on SciFi when the channel was still pretty new, so it was somewhere between 1992 and 1995.

I think the OVA dates back to the same early '90s period? Must've been something else, or you're as bad at remembering dates as I am.

Pokemon introduced me to the genre back in the early 2000's.

I didn't become a serious fan until about 2004-2005 when I was in middle school.
