Couldn't see any of these threads around, so thought I would just dump one in.

Basic premise - just answer the question. What got you into anime? Personal interest? A show a friend suggested? General interest from anime memes?

I'll kickstart it - a friend suggseted I watch One Piece. Didn't like it, but got me interested in some other shows. The rest is history, apparently

Back in HS my friend invited me to an anime club. At the time I didn't know what anime was, even though I watched it such as Pokémon, dbz, haruhi etc. But the people there were so different and unique from the other people.
At the time the 'other people' were talking about jersey shore or real world and shit I didn't care about but the people in the anime club talked about things I liked, such as games and anime.
Long story short the people in the club brought out my love for anime and taught me to not be ashamed for my hobbies and interests

I got into it as a kid with things like Pokémon, Inuyasha and Sailor Moon among others. The art style grabbed me so I stuck with it.

Naruto was the first anime I watched when I was a kid on Fox Kids, I'd also watched Sailor Moon and Pokemon, but as a kid I had just assumed they were cartoons.

It wasn't until I was older that I got speaking to a friend of a friend who was reading a Manga of Naruto (which I recognised from the cover), and said I used to watch it but hadn't seen it for ages. She then proceeded to tell me that it was great but it wasn't her favourite anime, I questioned her on what anime was and researched it when I got home, watched a few (one being Full Metal Alchemist) and was instantly hooked.

I think inyuyasha started it for me. I don't think I understood Pokemon was an anime back then I just thought it was a cartoon. Same with Naruto when that came on lol.

Once I started high school I kinda just stumbled across it while watching toonami and I figured some more was on the internet and the rest is history.

I used to watch dubbed anime as a kid on TV but just considered it just a regular cartoon like Power Puff Girls. My eldest brothers always used to watch Naruto on the computer, I started to get into it and searched it online. Went on a random anime website, clicked a video link which happened to be Shugo Chara and the rest is history, I never left the anime world since.

Saw first episode of Sailor Moon back in early 90's fell in love with the art style and story. Then Evangelion came along and that really got me into Anime, Card Captor Sakura was the clincher just turned me into a avid anime watcher and also got me into reading Manga because I fell in love with the art work of CLAMP and have my own lil personal library of CLAMP's works.

I played Naruto Ultimate Ninja on the PS2 about a decade ago. I'd heard of Naruto before and what little I'd seen on the internet and TV I didn't mind so I picked the game up and really liked it. It got me into watching AMVs and other clips on Youtube and eventually I just started to watch full shows.

When I was a kid I liked to watch Yu-Gi-Oh! on TV along with a few other 'anime-like' shows, but it wasn't until I was about 12 when I found out about it by chance. I was obsessed with vampires back then and came upon a random YouTube video that said something like "Top 10 Vampire Anime".
Eventually I started watching others... and *boom* here I am today.
