Wow, I didn't realize my introduction was so unusual. Only bombush claimed the same. My first exposure to anime was watching Shampoo chasing Ranma across the wall with Soun saying, "As a boy, she wants him; as a girl, she wants him dead." That was a classic introduction and Ranma has ever had a special place for me.

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.

I guess the first I watched was Pokemon, when I was in fourth grade. I still love pokemon. I'm playing Diamond right now! But I would wake up every morning at six o'clock or earlier to watch pokemon before school. I rarely missed an episode.

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.

Yu Yu Hakusho seems to be a popular first anime...I didn't even know that it existed untill last year. (That was the year I met my friend who is constantly talking about it...she loves Karama...how the heck is that spelled?) :D
There are no dumb questions, therefore, they are all of equal stupidity.

Akira

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
I\'m far from perfect, so forgive me for my faults.

I saw Dragonball Z and Pokemon and such on tv, but I don't really count that because they where dubbed. I dont like my anime dubbed.
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.

I saw an episode of Sailor Moon when I was about six, I think. :D

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. :D (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.
