It was Card Captor Sakura, just because it took me about 5 or 6 episodes to notice that everything was in japanese (i was used to watch the brazilian dub, and the voices were very similar to the original). But I just get serious after Love Hina, the manga, that had many things in japanese to read.

I lov Cowboy Bebop and.. Ghost in the Shell. But FMA rocks too. The one that really got me to was Rorouni though, for some strange reason.
...Hmm... Interesting... How far do I have to shove my head up there to understand you again?

The first anime I ever watched was "Saint Seiya". I was very young at that time. After I remember I've watched "Saylor Moon"; "Yu Yu Hakusho"; "Rurouni Kenshin" which I love till nowadays for its perfect strokes; and most recently "Tenchi Muyo" (my fave character is Ryoko); And "Inu Yasha" that is a great view of japanese tradictions and myths.

I guess all of them helped me getting interested in japanese culture and language, even I've watched all of them in portuguese.

The first anime I have ever watched, which is also one which spurred on my liking for the Japanese language and culture, is 魔神英雄伝ワタル (Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru).

Thats a tough one, so many animes that i've watched. I would say my first imported set, Naruto! Since it's in japanese, i've picked up phrases and words from it. And this inspired me to learn japanese!

Well, the first anime I have ever, ever watched was Sailor Moon. (When I was 3 or 4) I watched it in Cantonese. I really did like it. That's when I started liking anime, but I really didn't know where it came from. ... After some years of pondering I realized it was Japanese. ^_^;;

Well, then I got more interested in anime so I kept watching dubbed versions of it. (CCS, Yu Gi Oh, etc...) Then I got to know a wider variety of anime, and I wanted to watch them... in their original language.

The first anime I watched in Japanese was Chobits I think. I was so excited! The second was X/1999... and so on... I think that was what inspired me to learn Japanese, and I love it! ~~ ^_^
