Rurouni Kenshin for me back when it aired on Toonami
Clever recommendation thread, OP.
It's fucking Pokemon
Your favorite anime.
kill la kill
i still like it
Depends on when someone is getting into it -- both their age and what year. Plus, there's then the variable of chance for what they see first.
The answers end up having quite the range. Assuming you mean American, since that's all that I really know about, Sailor Moon, Cowboy Bebop, Dragonball Z, Naruto, FMA, Pokemon, even Evangelion, or older things like Speed Racer, Captain Harlock can all be correct answers.
Ouran Host Club
This....is actually true.
Since forever and for forever.
Anything on Adult Swim

Nobody cares about Japan.
yes i watched Z before the original series.
I think everyone on /a/ did.
I've never watched a single episode of either
Doraemon was aired in tons of places outside Japan
Nice try you pervert. We know why you really watched a show about a cat robot.
No particular reason
I didn't have television service growing up so by the time I got into anime I wasn't interested.
I plan on reading the manga someday though.
Anything that regularly aired on western television. If you exclude all of that, probably Eva.
I remember watching the first season when I was 4. In fact, waking up from my bed with mickey-mouse bed sheet across from my super-nintendo, walking into my living room and watching the first part of the St. Anne two-parter episode is the EARLIEST memory I can actually recall. Pokemon is, in a weird way, older to my mind, by a few minutes, then my own mother is. And I guess so is anime; since, because the characters spoke, the earliest words I can remember came out of an anime character's mouth.
Pokemon is babby's first anime.
Ranma 1/2.... Good times
Pokemon was my first, although I remember my sister liking hello kitty. I don't remember remember the first day of pokemon, but I was in grade school when it got big.
However now that you mention it, I vividly remember as my first real memory, the guitar riff from the Mighty morphing power rangers.
Dragon ball Z
don't lie /a/ you entered with this or slayers

For people who got into it as a kid: Pokemon/Naruto/Dragonball
For people who are trying to get into it as an adult: Cowboy Bebop
Probably all the 10/10 I have on my watched list, which I rated when I first started watching chinese cartoons.
Code Geass, Death Note, Madoka, Cowboy Bebop
