    That message took me about half an hour to make. I found a typo and was mad, and fixed it. I will never retype this. I will simply copy and paste it from now on.

    My first anime was when I was a child. They didn't call it anime back then. The series was TOBOR the Eighth Man. Robot spelled backward if you didn' catch it. Later Speed Racer came around. I didn't watch any anime for years. Was bored one day got online and found Gunslinger Girls. The premise of the story blew me away. This was unlike any animation I had ever seen before and from that moment on I was hooked. I am always looking for new anime. The storylines are so maleable because it is anime, but character depth brings it all to life. Throw in some great graphics and background art and what more can you ask for.

    Mine was Beast King GoLion (Voltron) back when it was on Cartoon Network in the 90s. I then went on to watch DBZ, Cardcaptor Sakura, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and Yu Yu Hakusho. It was Yu Yu Hakusho that really made me wanna watch more anime. Eventually, I ended up liking subs more than the dubs because of the original voices and OVAs. The only reason I watch dubbed anime is because I have an younger sister that wants to watch things I watch. Anime is one of them at least till she can multitask the anime and read subs at the same time like I did.

    The first anime i watched was thundercats. But that was i think what most kids my aged watched.

    Well "Anime" I went out and watched a long time ago in the 1980's Akira.

    I started watching anime because it was before normal people used the internet and you had to go to blockbuster to get VHS movies. I watched all the Action movies and shows they had in the normal section. I then started looking at other sections there was one called "animation" So i found them there :) I was really bored back then. Glad i found that section even thou it was small it was full of great anime!

    Yu Yu Hakusho at a young age was my first one i ever watched after that was InuYasha, saw pokemon but never took a liking to it. then ever since i learned it was it's own category of show when i was older and no longer had access to it on tv i started browsing around to find more i liked which led to Sword Art Online, Parasyte, Ghost in the shell, One Punch Man, Dead Man Wonderland, Didn't really care too much about what was in the shows whether it showed some nudity or blatantly showed a lot of it as long as it was either humorous to me or had some entertaining characters / fighting etc..., so i would also watch stuff like High School DXD & Senran Kagura and the list went on ever since i started discovering more and more anime i liked to watch.

    The First Anime I ever Watched was a Highly Underrated one called, "The Guyver: Bio-Booster Armor".
    I use to own the whole Anime on VHS back in the Day.
    Till this day i always come back to this Franchise and Wish it could have a live action HBO Show.:cool:

    My first was Death Note because I had seen the movie on netflix and really liked it; I got into anime because almost my whole friend group at the time liked anime and I didn't wanna be clueless
