Tosho Daimos. It started my affinity for Super Robot shows. I wacthed it when I was 5 but the episode where Daimos was almost defeated and crushed by that two-headed mech still plays clearly in my mind. They played it again 6 years ago on local TV and I still watched it after I came home from univ. :P

The first anime I've ever watched was Spirited Away. Yes, I am a late bloomer and it was my dad who introduced me to the world of anime.

Wonderful Adventure of Nils (ニルスのふしぎな旅 / Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige) or Tao Tao.

I didn't know those series had anything to do with Japan though. So I didn't know they were anime.

The first anime where I heard Japanese language was Inu-Yasha in 2000.

The first anime I watched as a kid?  I don't think I can remember, especially since I wasn't aware that anything I saw might have been from Japan.  Maybe Voltron or Tranzor Z if those are anime.

The first stuff that really caught my attention as anime were programs on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.  I think Cowboy Bebop, Inuyasha, and Outlaw Star were the main ones.  Dragon Ball (Z) and some other stuff that aired regularly about 2-3 years ago may have been in there, too.

Sailormoon, of course! I was like 10 years old or something XD
My fave character was Mizuno Ami/Sailor Mercury *^_^*
They've also showed some ooooold series like Candy Candy and Hana no Ko Lunlun on TV back then, but I can't remember if I liked them that much :3

The 1st anime I've downloaded was NANA but I stopped watching at maybe 5-6th ep.

Hokuto no Ken [ Fist of the North Star ]

I was like 6 ( '95 ),  watched it in my older cousins bedroom when he wasn't around.  I used to go around yelling "WATATATATATATATAH~" and throw a billion punches at my older cousin.

So,  not much different from today. XD

The very very first anime i remember watching on TV as a kid (back when dinosaurs still walked the earth..) was Mazinger Z (a.k.a Tranzor Z in da U.S), based on the manga from the master Go Nagai.

I also remember that every single episode had the exact same structure (i learned much later that this was normal for any japanese stuff made for the younger viewers), like :

_ "Oh, let's all have a picnic!"
_ "Oh yeah! good idea!"
_ "Oh, this sandwich is so good!"
_ "Wait, what is this ??"
_ "Aaaah! it's one of those evil giant robot monsters atacking us!!!"
_ "Aaaaa! we're doomed!"
_ "No! look, it's... Mazinger Z!"
_ "Ahah! leave it all to me. i'll destroy this evil robot! Come here, you fool!"
SLASH! BOOM! WIZZZZZ! ROCKET PUNCH! BLAM! CRUNCH!
_ "Ahah! victory is mine!!!"
_ "Oooh, thank you Mazinger Z..."

...  :sweatdrop:

Still, as a kid, i was totally hooked on that shit! :P

I probably saw a lot of odd animes when I was younger. Animes meant for very young kids were always shown on early morning shows when I was younger. All dubbed of course, have no clue what any of them were XD

First anime I watched and knew it was an anime, Sailor Moon. Dubbed. Into Swedish. Voice acting was pretty good, actually XD;;

Same with me:)  I watched anime when I was little. I don't know those english names and remember japanese names.
But I think my first "I know this is anime" -anime was Pokemon, Digimon and Magic Nights Rayearth, then came Sailor Moon (with Swedish dubbs):D

Looks like I'll have to change my answer again...I forgot about all the americanized anime I watched on WB so the first ones I saw that I knew were anime were Cardcaptor Sakura and Escaflowne.

well before I knew it was anime, I watched the hell outta Robotech. Later I found out it was a bastardization of other anime titles. Then I started liking anime. After watching GI Joe and Transformers where tons of people are shooting at each other and no one gets hit or killed. Or where planes explode and pilots always bail out instantly it was freaky to see people die and blow up in Robotech. Horray for violence!

The first one was Captain Future, then Saber Rider. But this time we thought, these were american, 'cause the synchros came from us-version.

Post by: BX_LeMans on September 16, 2006, 07:32:34 PM
The US-version of Sailormoon has got complete new characternames, when I'm right.
In Germany are only the japanese names spoken in english way. Usagi=Bunny, Rei=Ray
I could these syncho-studios :hits with chair: ...most german synchros are bad.
TV-senders are the same, they cut animes like OnePiece and Inuyasha for afternoon-program...

Let's see....early 80's it was Gatchaman (aka Battle of the Planets), Galaxy Express 999 and Macross.

Flash forward to the mid to late 80's, I was exposed to newer anime of the time; stuff like Bubblegum Crisis, Grandzort, Ranma 1/2, Venus Wars, Saint Seiya, Dirty Pair and Five Star Stories.

I still prefer anime from the 80's and early 90's. I think most anime nowadays is shit. Not all of it, though.

Akira, in high school. I think about all the money that I'd have today if I'd never seen that film.. I never would have joined that anime movie club columbia house thing.. I never would have obsessively bought all the Bebop, Evangelion, Trigun, Card Captor Sakura, Gundam, Chobits, etc etc etc.. never would have started listening to Jpop, or buying manga... But, I'd probably be obsessing over something else, right? At least these obsessions are fun. ^_^

Now this is an interesting topic for me.

Originally, I had wanted to say `Star Blazers' and `Battle of the Planets'.
But then I realised that this is not true - kinda.

The first anime that I watched were `Astro Boy', `Kimba the White Lion', and `Gigantor'. The only problem is.... is that I don't remember!!! :ONcry:

My mother told me that these were the first, but I actually don't remember them. But this has to be true because I actually remembered the theme songs to them even though I don't remember the shows themselves!!! :ONfrustrated:

I used to jump around and sing along with the shows around the house when they came on.

Then years later, I bought a cd with cartoon theme songs in it and they had the `Astro Boy' and `Gigantor' themes. And just before each song began, I had already started the sing the songs!

So yep, it's true, these were the first 3 animes that I actually watched. :)

Wow i cant remember which one i watched first but show wise i believe teknoman was first, it was called tekkaman in japan, great show oldschool, here's a pic:

After that either DBZ or Ronin Warriors show wise.

Movie wise would have to be akira or ghost in the shell.

Akira was the first anime I watched when I knew it was an anime, but I had a tape as a kid of the dubbed Star Blazers/Starship Yamato (still got it actually) and I remember really liking the start but not liking the ending :(

Pretty sure it was Robotech, Astroboy and Voltron (all turned to english) on local TV channel. So roboty~ :P
But first time I actually woke up and separated "anime" from "cartoons" was from my cousin. Which introduced me to stuff like Dragon Ball, Laputa, Totoro, City Hunter, Crying Freeman, Bubble Gum Crisis... etc.
 
Kids now are so lucky, with the net. Before, I'd nearly need to kill just to get some episodes of Hello Kitty!!?!~ :hits with chair:

For me it was Mysterious Cities of Gold, Ulysses 31 and Thundercats.

They are all kind of on the line though as they were joint projects with western TV stations.

Proper anime was Dominion Tank Police.

BOTUTESU PAYBUNI - Voltes V

I think when i was watching this, they also showed Shaider and Kamen Rider Black (and Bioman/Maskman, i think). Back then i was more of a metal hero/super sentai fan than an anime fan. It wasnt until Ghost Fighter (Yu Yu Hakusho) came out that i started looking for other anime.

i remember watching sailormoon back in the philippines and i think everyone  (or atleast everyone that was watching sailormoon back then- which was me and all the girls in my grade [haha i was the only guy watching this]) realized after a while(well we werent that informed in terms of sexuality back then) that uranus and neptune were lesbians.

the funny thing is that, few years ago, i watched the english dubbed version of sailor moon on ytv and they had something completely stupid made up as an explanation on why uranus and neptune are close (sorry i dont remember but i do remember it being stupid).

I saw about ten minutes of Nausicaa on TV when I was really little and didn't find out what it actually was for yeeaaars. It was worth it though!

The first and only series I really got into was Evangelion in middle school. I bought the tapes (mostly dubbed xD) for like 30 dollars a pop. What a huge rip off anime used to be.

The very first ... I belive it was transformers but there people that told me Transformers wasn't an anime, I can't say for sure because I was too young to remember.
I saw Zillion when I was a lot young too, but only one episode and I don't remeber a thing, so I'm not sure it counts.
 
The one I'd say I remeber well is Akira, which I hated. But thankfully that didn't made me hate animes at all, I've always been kind of open minded, so when I saw an anime I liked I was hooked into this like crazy.
 
The first anime I liked like hell was Saint Seiya.

Doraemon (i think its that one character that's blue and can pull stuffs out of its pouch) i don't think i should count this one since, i didn't really understand what they were doing, and DragonBall. At first, i didn't like dragonball cause, to me, the graphics look crappy.. but then i got into it.

The very first before I even knew what anime was was 'nausicca vally of the wind' or however you spell it. This was an OLD import and it was on tv. Way before a real release. I am talking when I was like 10 or something. I am 31 now :) so yea. Then after that it was Akira, I think the first release. Late 80's? Early 90's? I was like whoa!! cartoon boobies. I was early teen then as well! It was awesome!

The probably first cartoon as knew was an "anime" I watched is "Attack No. 1" (in my country called "Mila superstar") but there are several other "anime" like Samurai Pizza Cats I watched before but didn't know they are from Japan or something like that... so I dunno what exactly the first anime is because I was too young to remember olol.

Sailor Moon when I was like 8 or something. I called it "specially drawn cartoons" cause I could tell it apart from the regular cartoons (dunno how. =S)
I also watched Pokémon when it came a few years later, if you call that an anime.

The first i anime watched when I really know that it was an anime, was... hm... what was it again... arghh...
I think it was Peach Girl actually. XD

Post by: sweeety on August 03, 2008, 06:40:44 AM
mine was  Ribbon no kishi... no, not the musical, the real one. And I was about four and fell in love with it. Then it was Nausica and a bunch of other studio gibli stuff like Kiki's delivery service and others whose names I can't recall right now.

 Then of course, just like any other normal little girl I became somewhat addicted to Sailor Moon. My fave was sailor Uranus. Not just cause of the name XD but she had a freakin sword! Everyone else had those wimpy little rods, she had a freakin sabre!

 Then it was Shin chan and Pokemon, Digimon and other 10 year old stuff (tenish.. not exactly ten... maybe 12... nah not that old.. but I was into them as soon as they came out)

 also, did I mention care bears and my little pony there? I was ga ga over them as a todler! Also Barbie ads XD since she had no movies when I was a kid. Then I just watched Nick and Disney toons as well as loony tunes. God knows how many times I've seen Fantasia and Fantasia 2000.

 I also watched the goofy movies.. dunno if it counts.. and many many Mickey mouse toons as well as other Disney stuff.. what else? I used to watch Zoids, avatar and Gundam wing when I was like 14-15 somewhere around there.. I can't remember anything else..

 But I remember that without a doubt my fave and earliest memory of toons is Ribbon no Kishi :D

Robotech reruns in 1989. I was four but I remember watching it. Probably some Voltron in there, too.

When I was 14 I noticed the DBZ phenomenon but wasn't into it. Gundam Wing dragged me in just a bit deeper, but it was not until I borrowed a friends VHS tape of Gundam 0083 that I saw how awesome this stuff could be. I looked into some shows, and bought the first VHS of Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040, and that show got me hooked on anime for good. So yeah, 90 series later according to my ANN watch list, here I am. :)

Gigantor.  XD Does that count?  I used to watch that every morning before catching the school bus.

I think it used to play on the SciFi channel; Thunderbirds came on right after it.

It's hard to remember the very first anime I watched... I remember trying to watch Sailor Moon just to see Haruka.  :wub:

I don't actually remember what the first anime I ever watched was called. I've tried finding it, but never succeeded. It was a lot like Gundam, with the characters being space pilots who went in mobile suits. Only thing I can really remember is when two guys were fighting over a girl and then I think one of them got thrown into space. Fun.

The first ones that I can remember would have to be Pokemon and Sailor Moon. My childhood fantasies wouldn't have existed if it weren't for Misty. White lace lingerie anyone?

Then it was others were like Crayon Shin-chan, Digimon, Doraemon, and other anime you would see a lot growing up in Japan :japan:. Like ones even your grandparents would know.  :on lol:

The first anime I ever watched was Gigantor (aka Tetsujin28) on an old black and white tv with rabbit ears and 2 channel dials 1 (for VHF and 1 for UHF).  I think I was 3 at the time.

The first subtitled anime I ever saw were fansubbed VHS tapes of Kimagure Orange Road.

God, I feel old now.

Before I really got into anime I think the first shows that I watched as a kid were Voltron, Samurai Pizza Cats, Ronin Warriors, Dragonball, Sailor Moon, Teknoman, Pokemon and Digimon and that was when network channels showed cartoons early in the morning. *sigh* The good old days.

Pokemon and Naruto, actually. It's pretty embarrassing to remember that time, I was quite the Narutard for months and refused to watch any other anime as I didn't believe they could be as good as Naruto. Then I started watching actual good anime, and realized Naruto is fairly bad in comparison.

Before every episode that I will watch, <start sarcasm> I am always curious about what new gadgets the mecha will use, and in what order he will use it.  The most enjoyable moment for me was wondering if Voltes V will prevail in each and every one of its episodes.

Does Voltron count? If not it was whatever toonami had on. Dragonball Z was the one I remember most. Goku finally going super saiya-jin as a 13 or 14 year old boy, or however young I was, blew my freaking mind. Of course you had to wait 3 or 4 episodes for anything to happen so they dangled that event in front of you for a few days... it was torture.

My first anime was Pokemon and I was huge fan LOL
now I feel retarded and gay

Hey,you shouldn't feel retarded and gay. I liked it,and then I got into Digimon and then I didn't like it anymore. I did go through a phase of watching May and Max episodes 5 years ago but apart from that I haven't really been into Pokemon. I don't hate Pokemon like I used to but I can't watch episodes that I watched as a kid. No anime gets me excited and pumped like Digimon does.

But some parts of newer Pokemon episodes I like,like that Pokemon Hunter J character.

IIRC, it was Sailor moon that first got me into the anime world. I remember watching Esclaflowne and some Gundam series as well before really getting into the mainstream popular ones (DBZ, Pokemon, Digimon, etc.)

The very first ones were Doraemon and Anpanman, but I was too young to remember it. The first one I remember watching was Saint Seiya, but that was before I even knew what anime was. To me they were just regular cartoons like Tom and Jerry. The first one I watched knowing it was anime and got me interested in other anime was Shin Seiki Evangelion.

I don't remember what anime I watched first but what I remember was watching these in kindergarten to 1rst grade
Pokemon, Digimon, Yu-gi-oh, Dragon balls,
along with the anime they would show on adult swim.
which I think at the time was Gundam, Big O, and Serial Experiments Lain. I didn't understand what the hell was going on but my young mind was fascinated by it to the point that I'd stay up every Saturday watching them.

The first of what I could remember was Ronin Warriors. The one I vaguely remember is Teknoman (which I have been trying to find to watch, but no luck).

Yoroiden Samurai Troopers was turned english! man, it's so easy to get anime now! :bow:
Might be easier if you looked for the jap name "Tekkaman Blade"

Mine was Gundam Wing!  Back when it got aired on Toonami so long ago.  I rewatched it recently now that I'm older and can understand the plot better and I must say after watching 00 Gundam that 00 Gundam seems very inspired from Gundam Wing.

I was still a brat, didn't even know I was watching Anime, but I'm pretty sure it's either Dragonball or Sailormoon
Earliest memory were of Digimon and Pokemon, but I still didn't know they were Anime. I just called them cartoons, since that was what my parents called them.
What really got me into the world of Anime was Inuyasha. Man I loved that show. :cathappy:

The very first anime I watched, was Pokémon dubbed in Norwegian, but what really got me into and being a fan of anime, was Naruto, which I started watching during the summer in 2008.

My country used to play anime every Sunday. Most of them are legendary and almost nobody knows about them now. A few notable mentions as well as my first anime(s): Doraemon, Naruto, Dragonball Z, Digimon, Pokemon. Fujiko F. Fujio's P-Man, Ninja Hattori-kun, even Hell Teacher Nube and Ranme 1/2.

Speed Racer reruns as a kid, as they were airing on syndication.  The original Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon were really early shows for me, too.
