    My first anime was Hand Maid May recommended to me by a friend. It's a wierd ecchi harem and seeing as those are my now least enjoyed genres it's amazing I kept watching anime. xP

    Then after Aishiteruze Baby and D.N.Angel she recommended me Bleach, which I was obsessed with for three years (and still am a little).

    Let's take a trip down memory lane. The anime that started it all was Dragon Ball Z, and it escalated from there.
    Death Note, Vampire Knight, Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, Digimon, Pokemon, Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, Inuyasha,
    Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, D.N Angel, Spiral, Fruits Basket, Full Metal Alchemist, Ouran High School Host Club.

    My tastes keep evolving as new anime is introduced. Spread to numerous genres.
    Tokyo Ghoul, Ghost Hunt, Kamisama Kiss, Maid Sama, The Devil is a Part-timer, Is This a Zombie, Noragami, Gundam Seed etc.

    I look forward to new series, as well as re-visiting the classics.

    Can’t believe that I’ve never posted in this thread..

    Anyway, it was probably Mobile Suit Gundam 0079. I cant remember for certain. I remember growing up with Gundam, Rurouni Kenshin, Dragon Ball and DBZ, Yu Yu Hakusho, and the various Ghibli films.

    I would love to tell you all that my first anime I was watching was Dragon Ball z. But I want be completely honest with all of you. The first anime I started with was a cartoon called Dragon Ball z and of course Dragon Ball. Yes I am talking about Dragon Ball Z the anime not a cartoon. I did not start learning the difference in anime and cartoons till I started needing more then what cartoon network was giving me. I was about 8 or 9 when I started figuring out that Dragon Ball Z was originally from Japan and the original audio was in Japanese. I hated reading when I was a kid I was even in special classes for reading and writing. So to find out to get my fix of Dragon Ball Z I needed to read the newer episodes I figured to hell with it I will just start liking to read. And then I started with the computer in my grandmothers front bedroom. And watching it in Japanese and reading it in English. "How can you understand a dam word there saying. Well because I'm reading the words. But there going to fast. I go back and re-watch what I can't read."

    One time I called my mother a "Baka" and she asked me what it meant. It means I love you in Japanese. "Wow you learned that from watching anime. Yup sure did."

    After Dragon Ball Z I was freaking hooked.

    Once I would get home from school I would watch my DB, DBZ, Sailor Moon and all the good ones from the 90's. Or I would watch what I could until Walker Texas Ranger-Chuck Norris. would come on. I had the TV from about 3:30 to 5:00 and then 6:00 to 8:00 it was anime on cartoon network then Walker Texas Ranger on usa and the Raw. I think it was on Spike TV or something like that until it switched to USA. And once I got my own TV in the room it was all anime all the time. And now the anime habit has grown over the years to just watching online for hours a day.

    Pokemon and digimon were technically the first. But it wasn't until about 5 years later I discovered Shaman King on the Fox Box, and a year after that the 4-Kids dub of One Piece. Around then was when i was really hooked on the medium. A couple years after that I saw episodes of naruto in the passing (didn't have cable). Then one summer I had good internet access for a month...
