I was never really big on sports at all. So every time I saw a sports anime I was like "Oh its sports, I'm going to be bored with it." One day I decided to watch one to see how bored I would be. I ended up choosing Kuroko's Basketball, which was the best idea ever. That day I kicked myself so hard and told myself that I needed to watch more of those, and learn to be more apprecitive of sports anime and sports in general.

After watching Hunter X Hunter, I fell in love with the studio, and now worship it on a day-to-day basis. Although the Shounen genre is over-saturated with crap (Fairy tale, Naruto etc.)

I grew up in the short time Toonami was around in the US. So I would say Cardcaptor Sakura, Rurouni Kenshin, Yu Yu Hakusho, Pokemon and a few others were what got me into anime.


Okay. Toonami isn't a genre. Is there an anime series that made you fall in love with the GENRE?


I know Toonami isn't a genre. But the animes listed have their own genre's. Cardcaptor would be what Moe/supernatural? Kenshin and Yu Yu Hakusho would be action, etc. Those were the title's that got me into anime and in turn their respective genre's. From those I branched out into others.

Strictly speaking, Knights of Sidonia on Netflix revived my dormant interest in anime.

The genre surprise was Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid (hence the user name) which opened up a lot of relationship/romance series i wouldn't have otherwise entertained.

Kuroko's Basketball is better basketball than NBA basketball.

I had given a chance to sports anime with Prince of Tennis, but it was Haikyuu!! that made me stop disregarding a show just because they were listed in the sports genre


Wait, so, Haikyuu made you hate or love the sports anime genre?


Love it! Well, give a chance really. Prince of Tennis always felt like an exception to me, but Haikyuu!! showed that a sports anime could be more 'real' (the freak quick is a lot more doable than those tennis balls) and still be interesting. I don't have much of an interest in watching sports irl, so I thought 'normal' sports anime wouldn't be my cup of tea before watching HQ!!

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex made me fall in love with psychological anime.


I'm surprised you didn't say Ergo Proxy or Texhnolyze or Serial Experimentation Lain or Boogiepop Phantom.

But I guess those anime shows that I just listed are heavy psychological anime. By the way, have you seen any of these? I have seen a few episodes of these shows then lost track of time.

I mean no disrespect.


I rarely ever see anyone talk about or having watched Texhnolyze or Ergo Proxy. Both great animes btw.

Don't forget to add SAO and Bleach in that crap list.

I'm one of the few people that didn't really get into anime until I was already out of high school. When I was nineteen, just about to turn twenty, I watched Kanon (2006) and I was completely blown away by how much the story resonated with me on a personal level, and how much of an emotional attachment I developed for the characters. This was my first exposure to Visual Novel adaptation genre, and also the moe and romance genres as well. Since then, I've discovered amazing shows like Clannad, Air, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and many others, because Kanon was the show that really cemented my love for anime, and made me see that there was more to anime than ecchi harems, giant robots, and over the top shounen action series.

Not to say I only watch moe stuff. To be honest I hate those moe blob shows that come out all the time, and right up there with my love of Kanon and Clannad is my obsession with Evangelion and the Fate series. So I still like my manly action anime every now then too.

But all of that started with Kanon, and to this day it is still my favorite anime of all time, and it holds a special place in my heart.

Gundam Seed/Destiny is what got me into the mecha genre. I know everyone and their mother hates on it, but I have no ill will towards it. It's not one of my favorites nowadays, but I still enjoy it despite some questionable decisions in the sequel. Mecha is probably my favorite type of anime to watch because of it.

Haganai was the first slice of life rom com style anime I watched and I've been watching that style of anime ever since. It was the first anime I watched that wasn't one of the big longrunning series like Naruto or One Piece
