No. It was more or less part of my life throughout this corporeal existence due to reasons. I wasn't even aware it was 'different' until much later.

When I was young I was browsing youtube looking at random videos when suddenly an episode of outlaw star showed up on the recommended videos. Next thing I knew I was several episodes in and anime was awesome.

You could say I found out about JoJo's Bizarre Adventure in a pretty roundabout way.

It's not all that weird, but...

One day I was playing on my Xbox 360, and I noticed on the apps tab there was this app called crackle. I had no idea what it was, so I decided to check it out. There was actually a decent amount of anime considering it was all completely free. I stopped on this cute looking magical girl show. There were no screenshots, so all I really had to go by was the vague description and the cover picture. I was expecting something cute sweet, and fun, and was going to try it out as a joke, but what I actually chose to watch was Madoka, which was moving on to be an extremely popular deconstruction series.

Remembering this is amusing.

Had my rig parked somewhere in Colorado awaiting I-70 to reopen again so spent downtime in nearby motel channel surfing to supplant my boredom. Chanced upon CN (nothing else worth worthing) when Tenchi Muyo was on. Hmm, what the hell, give this a whirl.

No regrets.

Well I did watch Pokemon when I was young, but I never knew it was anime until much later, so I usually say I found anime through a Dragon Ball Z video game. (Budokai Tenkaichi 3) I was 11 years old, played it at my cousin's house on his PS2, and absolutely loved it. I later bought the game for myself and played the heck out of it, but it was months later until I actually decided to watch the anime.

I was researching geiko/maiko and learning about kitsuke and related topics. I stayed up late one night and caught some random shows on Cartoon Network...the rest is history. Initially I had absolute no interest in anime.

Whoop, Toonami and old adult swim FTW!!

I visited Mexico in the early 90s and realized they shitted on America when it came to all anime. They had already been done with all of Dragon ball and thats including GT

Nobody includes GT. GT is terrible.

No, I think I went the usual route, watching tv.

After playing the Zero Escape series (the first of which is 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors, or "999") I decided to go hunting for posters. I searched for "999 poster" on eBay, which returned items for Galaxy Express 999. Intrigued by the art, I looked it up and as of this post I'm on episode 111 of 113 and loving it. It was a terrific accident.

So when I was in college, a group of friends and I were hanging out in a common room, playing board games and talking. One of us had a rubik's cube (this will be important later). A random drunk guy walked in, and he thought it was really cool that we were all hanging out together (he was a happy drunk). He saw that we had a mixed up rubik's cube, and he said that even while drunk he could complete it in less than a minute. We gave it to him, and before starting it he pulled a necklace out from behind his shirt.

It was a core drill from Gurren Lagann, and one other person from our group recognized it. They started shouting the quotes (Yours is the drill that will pierce the heavens, believe in the me that believes in you, etc.). The drunk guy solved the cube in about 45 seconds, and he was joking and making us laugh the whole time.

Later on, that group watched the first episode of Gurren Lagann together. Most of us laughed and were entertained, but I liked it so much that I finished the show. This not only got me into Gurren Lagann, but also pretty much into anime.

That's a true story.

Anime has been apart of my life for as long as I can remember; even when I didn't know it was. I remember waking up on Sunday mornings, yes Sunday mornings, to watch some cartoons before I head to church. I remember watching Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon at the time and loving those shows. Yep, I watched Sailor Moon and I liked it. I was real young at the time, maybe 6 years old. Didn't know that those were anime, but watched them regardless because it was good. Didn't find out they were anime till I was older.

Of course, like with most kids I watched Pokemon so much, maybe even too much. Then came Toonami; the best thing to happen to a kid growing up in the late 90's. My family didn't have cable or satellite at the time, so my brother's friend recorded them for us and we binged watched anime when we got the tapes from him.

So yeah, that's how I was introduced to anime
