I remember rounin kenshin was the anime that had me hooked in the late 90s.
But then I got tired of all the friendship crap from pokemon so I stopped.
Years later I watched zoids and .Hack/Sign and then again years later Toradora kept me hooked.

Ps. Still don't know why they classified some anime as harem when instead has a love triangle.

Originally Dragonball. The first anime I watched in Japanese with subtitles though was Bleach, shortly followed by Fullmetal Alchemist and Death Note. By then I was already reading manga though, in fact all the first anime I watched were only adaptations of the manga I was reading.

I watched Dragonball Z and Pokemon as a youngin', though that didn't really get me into anime. What really did was...Queen's Blade...

Pokemon, Digimon and Yu-Gi-Oh (More specifically Yu-Gi-Oh GX)

I'm not sure which started to make me watch 'properly' so to speak. Probably Digimon and Yu-Gi-Oh GX when I decided to rewatch them in 2012 and then moved on to other shows such as Naruto, One Piece and Attack on Titan the year after.

Omg! I just remember being hooked on anime since I was like 9yrs old. I wasn't allowed to watch tv so it started as a rebellion thing and turned into a life long habit ^^ and I think it was dragon ball.

I know when I was a kid I used to watch things like Sailor Moon or Dragon Ball (at that time, I didn't even know it was anime). I think that I've been on and off with anime in the past years. I mean I watched the mainstream things like Bleach or One Piece or whatever. But I feel that the anime that really gave me a starting point in watching more was:



I think this was pretty popular too. My friend recommended it to me, and I enjoyed it for the most part. Then after that it took off from there.

Shugo Chara.
It also began my career as a fangirl.
I mean, how can you not become one when one of the main male characters looks like this?

I had been watching anime with cartoons for as long as I can remember, but my "otaku awakening" was with Naruto.
I got swept along with the Narutard parade. The moment I started watching that show, I became an anime elitist. No longer did I enjoy cartoons the same way, no longer could I group Pokemon in with the rest of my shows.
Anime had become a separate, "cooler" category. Thus begins my long journey through anime discovery, mild weeabooism, an obsession with digimon, severe self-rejection, then acceptance.

I loved Dragonball, but that didn't really get me hooked on anime. Around 10/11 years ago I saw an episode of Naruto and thought it was really neat. Then, around 4-5 years ago I was really bored and remembered it, so I started watching it online. Once I caught up to the dubs I couldn't wait so I switched to subs and from that point on became an anime addict! It has its flaws but Naruto is still one of my favorite anime!

For me, it was Tokyo Mew Mew when I was 11. I just stumbled upon it on YouTube one day. Not exactly the best anime or my favorite, but very memorable for me.
