How did you discover anime?


Recommended Posts

What's your first anime? When did you watch it? What did you think of it?


My first anime(s?) was Pokemon, Digimon and Tenchi Muyo due to the influence of my bros. I was 8 at the time. I watched it in dubs though so I thought it was created by America @onions72@. It was only when I watched Ranma 1/2 and then Tsubasa Chronicles did I discover the world of anime (I didn't even know Japan existed at that time LOL).


What about you?

I thing my first anime was Digimon, but I was dumb so I had no idea that it was Japanese @onions77@


But my first intentional anime view was NARUTO ♥ and then on that same web site I found more and more and more.... I fell in love @onions68@

My first "real" anime - besides Sailor Moon, Pokemon and Detective Conan(oh my, that was part of my childhood XD) which was shown on TV - was Get Backers which I discovered through my brother. And then, many others followed. :D

I first discovered anime on television when I was in middle school (?). I thought it was so cool thinking, 'Wow. I can't believe America made these kind of cartoon shows!' only to find out much later that they were made by Japan and dubbed. -___-" Lol. I turned to Japanese anime completely when I found that the ones in America were not good enough when I compared the two.


The ones that I was only able to watch at the time were Pokémon, Sailor Moon, Digimon, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Gundam Wing. I'm unable to recall what other shows I watched.

My first anime was Ninja Robots. It used to air on cartoon network when i was really small (7 or 8 years old i think). At that time i thought it was western cartoon since i used to watch it and The Centurions and Swat Cats. After a decade i started watching Full Metal Alchemist/Inuyasha among others and knew that they were anime...

The first anime was Mononoke Hime or Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. I'm not sure, I saw both in the same year. However I had no idea that is anime. :) Well after I found GITS dvd among scifi movies and it was huge suprise.

Animated movies and cartoons are for childrens - that was my basic idea and GITS was like new dimension... I liked drawing style so I was looking after similar works and found "anime" :)

@onions41@ Good 'ol days... I remember running home from elementary school and plopping down in front of the tv everyday to watch Sailor Moon. I was watching all of those on the fox box, and cartoon network (tsunami?) and adult swim etc. I had a serious thing for Eriol Hiiragaziwa (yes I even remember his name to this day) from cardcaptor sakura when I was younger. Ah, the fanfiction... I was introduced to animes like Ronin Warriors and Voltron too from the next door neighbors (aka my babysitters). So I guess I was exposed to a lot of anime way before manga. Of course now, it's all about the manga! @onions59@

What's your first anime?

Sailor Moon :D


When did you watch it?

When I was 8-ish~ My sisters got me into watching it.. They are such bad influence.


What did you think of it?

From what I remembered, I was intrigued by it (dunno what tho) and Sailor Moon was my favorite character XD

I watched Dragon Ball Z and Card Captor Sakura...I didn't think much of them. They were fun...I think...I believe I was too young to consider anything like that...








He Was Cool

The Chronicles of the Grim Peddler

My first anime was Vampire Knight and I only watched it recently.

First thoughts on this anime would definitely be amazing as the plot keeps you going and I couldn't stop watching it.^_^ I would definitely recommend this anime to anyone who likes supernatural romance.^_^


I'll show you a sweet dream next night

My first exposure to anime was Voltron that my elder brother had on all the time. He loved it to bits, I liked it but didn't know it was anime since i was only 5 or so.


Then when i was around 8, my uncle bought Nausicaa of the valley of the wind for me and i fell in love with it. I had memorized all the lines, hummed all the songs and drove everyone crazy by live action role playing. I wanted nothing else but to fly and protect everyone from bad guys :P

Jeez I'll feel old.. alright my very first exposure to anime was probably Dragon Ball.. yes the original one... and Akira. I was... eightish? My mom's roommate at the time was a huge otaku so he introduced me to so much anime that I didn't realze it aws anime. Then I pretty much watched samurai pizza cats and sailor moon until they started playing more on tv. Umm first anime I ever bought though was 3x3 eyes I think-- that or tenchi muyo.

Pokemon was my first anime. A close second would be Yu-Gi-Oh! Both dubbed, of course. And around the age of 6 or 7?

My first shoujo anime was Sailor Moon. A classic, found at my local library. They had a dubbed VCR. Ahh, VCRs. Those are old.


status : currently unknown.

I prefer Fluttershy myself.

First anime? Doraemon, of course. ^ ^. When I was really really small, perhaps when I was only 3 or 4. I like it at first, and it made me wanted Doraemon and his tools, especially "Go to Everywhere Door". I first watched it in one of Chinese Channel. ^^
