IIT: We post the first anime we watched that got us into anime.
That was 4 years ago
I got familiar with Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Digimon, Monster Rancher, Evangelion, and even Cowboy Bebop before, but I didn't care all that much for the medium itself before I met Escaflowne.
evangelion and trigun
is this /mu/?
Which, in retrospect, was possibly the worst place to start imaginable. Tons of parodies of things I hadn't seen.
First pokemon I didnt recognize it as anime I thought it was made in my country.
Then dragon ball z...then naruto bleach and death note got me in to anime I guess
Those Who Hunt Elves. I'm still all for sentient tanks
Two of them aired on TV.
one of them was linked on a fanforum of one of the TV-airing shows.
Europe does not show anime.
Note: I watched Digimon and Pokemon before these two. But I never regarded them as anime.
Dragon Ball Z on Cartoon Network.
That doesn't count, dammit!
first anime i saw was something pre-sailormoon..don't remember what it was. first thing that got me into anime was..err..too long ago, i don't remember
Always will be my most favorite.
anime that got me into anime
hmm.. Rurouni Kenshin definitely
Not the first 'anime' you've watched, the first anime that got you into anime.
First I watched: Maya the Bee, Heidi
First that made me aware of anime: Pokémon
First that got me into anime: Vision of Escaflowne
First anime I downloaded: Berserk
I loved watching Escaflowne on Saturday morning cartoons. I was so pissed when it got canceled that I went out and bought it on VHS.
Gundam Wing and one anime lead to another
fyi evangelion is a greek word so its a guh sound not a juh sound D: first anime that got me into anime... hmm. typical toonami crap took it from a few mvoies / ovas to full time hoby.
