Actual: pokemon probably, maybe yugioh
When i knew what anime was: elfen lied
@speedway guy, wow. You started dark
@Pat Myckok, i started real
@speedway guy, Elfen Lied is fantastic!
@speedway guy, 0 to 100 real frickin quick
@speedway guy, my first was mobile suit Gundam seed
@speedway guy, Easy....Inuyasha
@speedway guy, Elfen lied!
@speedway guy, first was inuyasha but earliest I've seen was big-O
@speedway guy, lol same... well maybe Cannad first though, not sure.
Mine was Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood
@ZeroG1422, Naruto, 2005
edit: technically I watched Sailor Moon and a few others when I was a tyke
@ZeroG1422, I'm kinda a baby weeb. Mine was attack on titan in 2014
@ZeroG1422, started with Yu Yu Hakasho, but didn't really know what I was getting into. Watched Naruto and One Piece, which I enjoyed way more as a kid
@ZeroG1422, Yugioh-Pokémon-DBZ/DB-Naruto(basically everything on toonami)-Degeneracy
@ZeroG1422, Tenchi Muyo
@ZeroG1422, mine was Dragonball Z, Pokemon, YuGiOh, Sailor Moon and Yu Yu Hakusho. But Dragonball Z was the only one I watched all the way through. I started watching Yu Yu Hakusho again though. I didn't see FMA:B until 2 years ago and it became my favorite anime along with Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
@ZeroG1422, Akira and 3x3 Eyes for me.
Cowboy bebop baby
@PottedPlant, my first as well, still love it to this day.
Same. So many great quotes and of course the ending. Excellent.
I think mine was Guyver, bio-boosted armor from 1989. Then looked up some other anime at blockbuster and I think the next one was maybe Ranma 1/2.
Sigh, yeah I’m getting old.
@Genosis, you’re speaking my language. Original vampire hunter D, ranma 1/2, dragon ball z when it only existed here as a movie that was the whole fight with raditz and ended with goku starting snake way. I waited many many years for more...
Yu Yu, I rewatch it every year
Mine was Bleach and One Piece
@zuisher , One Piece is what pressured me into sub(mission)
Hahaha oh boy you young in’s...... it was DBZ up to goku landed on namek..... it was toonami when it was hosted by moltar....
@megamanx181x, same! I saw ssgoku fighting frieza for the first time not knowing what the hell was going on but it was cool. Then i started watching it at my house and it reset to raditz and when it got back to goku turning super saiyan i flipped shít because I didn't realize he was the same character fighting frieza until his hair turned gold watching it the regular way. I was happy to be a nineties kid
@megamanx181x, yeah idk if pokemon and yugioh count as anime’s cause they would probably be my first. I caught some random parts of like inyuyasha and yu yu hakusho back in the day but I was a little one and didn’t really watch them. First movie besides pokemon was probably spirited away
@Dephenistrator, what a time to be alive
@Richard Cypher, oh of course those count! My and my friend got Pokemon blue like two weeks before the anime came out and it was blowing our minds how a game and a cartoon were connected!
@megamanx181x, high five to another dude that started with blue version!
@Dephenistrator, damn right!!!
...my first time was princess mononoke.
Slayer for the win.
@Slightly Askew, Lina Inverse was bad ass
Speed racer and Voltron.
Inuyasha on adult swim circa 2005. Then Evangelion.
My first was evangelion
I got into it with DBZ , one of the OG’s and Yu Yu as well, Sailor moon because I didn’t know it was a chick show,
@DrSin, same here DBZ and Sailor Moon were the last shows after all the Saturday mornings ones passed
@DrSin, DBZ, Inuyasha, and G Gundam when they were on Toonami for me
Robotech and Voltron
The Akira movie followed by manga.
@Ewok612, though it is older than me. I was four or something when I saw it.
Funny enough, my first actually was Yu Yu Hakusho. I caught it on one night and the commercials always said "We'll be back with more Adult Swim." So I thought that was what the show was called. This was way before they advertised AS the way they do now.
Cowboy Bebop and Trigun
Voltron, and I mean the REAL Voltron, with the five lions. That hundred little cars Voltron can go f*ck itself.
Akira and Ninja scroll. Fists of the northstar shortly thereafter
Started with Akira, moved on to My Hime, Last Exile, and Fullmetal Alchemist.
I think mine was devil man cry baby
Yu Yu, Inuyasha, Kiddy Grade, Slayer, Kaleido Star after I knew what anime was, Sailor Moon before
Dam, i feel old after lookin at peoples firsts, lensman was mine.
My first was Yu Yu Hakusho. Feels appropriate.
For the Mexican American Kids that grew up in Texas, our Firts Animes was DBZ and that Soccer Anime, when they were barely starting DBZ in the States we also got the Mexican Channels which was already on GT by the time toonami barely came out
My starter pack was Naruto, FLCL, and D-Gray Man.
Candy candy, mazinger z, Butch the bee, and the princess of the of the 1000 years.
DBZ was my first then when I learned what anime was, SAO started me off
All about Overlord, then I dunked into months of bingeing Naruto for my 2nd
My first anime was Dragonball Z on Toonami, then came Gundam wing and and zoids.
Speed Racer... oh sh!t... I’m old...
Basic bitch here with dragon ball
My first was Sailor Moon when it first aired in the US.
Definitely a great place to start though. They'll have a healthy weeb future ahead of them.
The first anime I ever remember watching was Keke's Delivery Service
First animoo was either naruto or air gear
Strangely enough, mine was Blood+
@batdogsowner, and then I went straight to hentai
Yamada’s First Time. I was disappointed.
I started with rurouni kenshin or samurai X on crackle. Way back when in the year 20ot10.
@kdogzzs, watched fan subs of Kenshin in college, 2001ish.
Originally Sailor Moon when I was little. Reintroduced to it with Black Clover.
My first was Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, although it was the atrocious American rebranded Battle of the Planets with the voice of Casey Kasem. If you’ve only seen it in the American version, go watch it again properly, they really butchered it.
Mine was Haganai
