I first learned about anime because everyone in my elementary was always fuckin drawing some naruto or dragon ball z in their notebooks.............i didnt like it yet tho

and i mean, when i was little i watched like Pokemon and Sailor Moon (lol) but i didnt really know that it was anime or whatever the fuck


and then when i was like in the 5th grade I liked that hatsune miku vocaloid shit and then i became some like kawaii weeaboo bitch but i didnt really watch anime i was just a kawaii weeaboo bitch

but i remember in like 2012???? i think, everyone was talking about fuckin Attack On Titan so i like watched it and i liked it. i think tht was like the first actual anime i watched that wasnt Sailor moon.

then in 2013/2014 i got really into Pewdiepie ( i still am, he is a ledge ) but he would play like those rpg games??? and he played corpse party and i was like reaaaaaaaaalllyy into corpse party (still am) and i watched the OVA and i was like addicted.............

then on netflix i started watching Ouran Host Club and My Little Monster and i was getting reaaaaaalllyyyy addicted

so yeah and i kinda laid low and didnt watch much anime since then cause like lets be real, most anime sucks ass

i watched toradora and then i finished it and cowboy bebop and chobits and i kinda just stopped.

then like EVERYBODY was talkin about Yuri!! On Ice and i wasnt gonna watch it because i dont like that stupid annoying sexulised yaoi sport crap...............but i got sick of it and ended up watching it and getting ADDICTED and now im here


what about yall? wht was ur journey

I used to go to barnes and noble and see Death Note all the time in the manga section, it attracted me first by the emo like drawing, and ever since thats been my first anime!
finished it in 8 months because I only read the books physically back then

It started with the Tenshi Muyo series on Cartoon Network. I was bored with the usual cable, network TV fare so started surfing. Tenchi was on. Though initially less than impressed I thought "What the Hell?". He and the situations the animators put him in was funny. Passing fancy only until I noticed Cowboy Bebop. What the hell's this? That was back in late '90's. I like jazz, always have. Yoko Kanno and Cowboy Bebop started it all.

I'd say Eureka 7 and FMA 2003 are what started my interest, my brothers and i stayed up late to see them on adult swim every night we could.

I'm not counting the stuff I watched as a kid-

I was on youtube and there was this one video about cartoon characters drawn as anime characters with the Powerpuff Girls z song in the background I think. Eventually an episode of Rosario Vampire showed up. I was like 13.

I found a part of Hetalia on the Apple store and downloaded. I started watching it and that was when I started to get into anime with Fruits Basket, Ouran High School Host Club and Soul Eater being some of the first that I've watched

Mm, I started in grade school (about 3rd grade) with Pokemon, which quickly escalated into watching nearly every Saturday morning/weekday afternoon show that aired (Ronin Warriors, Cyborg 009, Tenchi, Kenshin, Outlaw Star, Gundam, Zoids, DBZ, Fighting Foodons, Digimon, etc). However, I didn'the even know the term 'anime' until middle school, about 6th grade to be exact and I guess I owe that to Neopets.

Neopets is what got me on the computer, as before I had very little interest, which I later then started researching other things I liked. I believe it was Card Captor Sakura I was searching info on when I came across 'anime' and what it was (that plus fanfiction and AMVs), this, of course, spawned a monster and I found myself wanting, needing, to find more shows. Granted, I still stuck mainly to what aired on television.

As time passed things not only become more available, but I also started working and such so I was able to afford to by a few shows on DVD which expanded myou interest in different genres. By the time college rolled around, I ended up being the president of the anime club for a few years, introducing members to all sorts of different aname. Fun times.

Right now, I watch streams more than DVDs, mainly due to funds, but I am enjoying how easily accessible anime is now compared to when I first started watching it.

So, inconclusion, I've been watching anime for roughly 20 odd years or so.

I liked cartoons when I was young. Skipping a few years of gaming mostly, my brother showed me a filler episode of gintama involving hemorrhoid ninja and being the 9 year old I was, laughed my ass off (pun intended.) Searched "Hemorrhoid Ninja" on google, found Gintama, The rest is history.
I remember browsing the anime cr had at the time. 10 year old self was very weirded out
