Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

What was your first Anime?

Recommended Posts

First anime in my lifetime: Pokemon/Digimon/YuGiOh or something. One of those Saturday morning things

 

Same with me. Pokemon made me delve deeper into anime at a very young age. Because of it, anime became the first thing I had as a child that wasn't taken away once I liked it, which is why I enjoy it so much now.

 

First matured series I saw was Ghost in The Shell: Standalone Complex, when I was about 8. I still think the series is fantastic.

Pretty sure that was Toonami.  Ah, the good old days. 

 

Ditto, or Pokemon, I can't remember which I watched first.  Haven't seen it in ages though. 

No, it was a anime about a man with a yellow afro, sunglasses and he had magic nosehair and fight the evil bald people empire.

I watched Hamtaro when I was six years old, but I didn't know what it was until much later. I actually started with manga before anime (I was a big reader when I was younger), but I think I started watching anime with Pokemon in 3rd grade because it was easily accessible.

My first anime was Shakugan no Shana. I just one day decided that I would check it out after reading a comment on a nightcore video on youtube about how good it was.

At the first episode I was like: "What the hell is this shit" and had to force myself not to quit

At the second episode I was like: "Hmm, i guess this is okay"

After watching the third episode I was hooked.

For the next couple of weeks my life consisted of nothing but watching anime and sleeping. (Yes, nothing else. I completly shut out all my friends and barricaded myself in my room.)

The first anime I saw that I can remember fully is My Neighbor the Totoro; I was at a daycare during the summer and it was some time while I was in fourth or fifth grade. If we're going by kind of remember when I was over at my grandparents' house they had cable while my parents didn't so I'd watch whatever came up on Nickelodeon and I watched these and only just recently discovered they were anime:

Edit: This one too...

Forgot because I remember I thought this and Little Koala as being the same show

 

I wonder if there are any DVD collections for those...

DBZ on cartoon network in the late 90s probably?

I don't remember, it was a long ass time ago when i saw my first anime, and i really didn't know what anime was until around 2006-07

Crap I'd forgotten about Dragonball. It's so ingrained in my childhood that I didn't even consider it

Don't worry, its normal mate. We all have these type of things that are ingrained in our memories because it was a major part of our childhood.
