View topic - first anime you have watched
I know I saw another anime before that, but I couldn't remember the name to save my life. I think it was a film, I think "Saturn" was part of the name, and it involved a crew of women in a spaceship. All but one or two of the women died during the movie.
Also, I was having serious deja-vu when I watched 天空の城ラプタ the first time, as if I had seen it before, too.
Regardless, Ranma 1/2 was the first anime that I saw, realizing that it was anime, and it got me hooked.

The first 'serious' anime that I ever watched would have to be Trigun on Adult Swim. I instantly fell in love with that show, then right after that Inuyasha came on, and I've been hooked on Anime ever since.

I saw it back in... umm... 91 I think it was. Whenever the first VHS tapes of it started coming out. Anyway, me and my friend got our hands on it thanks to his brother taking a trip to NC and picking it up. It think it's what got me interested in Japan and it's culture, which wasn't highly looked upon back then. I'm guessing it was due to war and everything, but that didn't stop us from wanting to learn more. XD

So then after those, the first would be Fullmetal Alchemist, wich was great.
After that Azumanga Daioh and School rumble. All three way better than Dragonball z and Pokemon IMHO.
I've avoided watching Yugioh and whatever the name of those other anime was on tv.
Also I tend to like anime better when there's real Japanese culture in it. Like culture fest in schools and golden week and the outfits they wear.

The first anime I really watched was DNAngel. I saw an amv on YouTube with a song I liked, and I thought Dark looked interesting. One of the comments mentioned the name of the anime and that it could also be found on Youtube, and I was hooked after that. (Never did watch the ending though, since my favorite character disappeared.) DNAngel was also the first manga I read, I managed to find some of it at our local library. Didn't like it as much as the anime, but then I started reading everything else they had... and last month I bought seven manga volumes online for $42. And am in love with a scanlations website.
