I really got into anime through playing RPG's like dot hack and xenosaga.
transformers and voltron like 20 years ago
and robotech for me
then i forgot anime until recently when initial d got me back into it.
come to think of it, i used to watch pokemon and speedracer as a kid, so i guess that's what got me into anime, but i thought of them as just cartoons at the time.
dragonball (the original) back when i was 11 or so and dint know what anime was
rurouni kenshin kyoto arc got me hooked as a teen
Star Blazers baybee
lol...thats old skool...i remember Star Blazers..
i'll take it back even further.. Battle of the Planets, Speed Racer, Marine Boy!
evangelion, just bought it and watched it cus it looked interesting
my bro introduced me to anime by making me watch the original vampire hunter D. i checked into battle angel and some others. I've been hooked since.
i grew up watching anime on TV , they're just regular cartoons to me
Poltergesit Report at a friends house... hooked since
watched Sailor Moon as a kid growing up, then a friend of mine gave me the first book in the Gunnm series. After reading that entire series I decided to watch Evangelion(the series) and Akira. I'd say Evangelion led the way as far as anime is concerned, but manga got me into it.
I saw Fruits Basket during a Japanese Student Association thing. Great anime.
Voltron, although it was just another cartoon to me. Fastforward to highschool and Ninja Scroll and Akira.
I grew up loving Astroboy and Sailor moon. lol. Then transformers. Rented some animes from my local movie rental and i was hooked.
I was always kind of interested by the art work more than anything, as western style cartoons like bugsbunny and such never really did it for me.
Back in 1990 my cousin got a hold of VHS recordings ) ironic of how I acquire anime eps. today) of Akira and Urotsukidoji. I was blown away . I've seen Voltron and Voltes 5 before, but I couldn't distinguish between cartoons prior to that, cartoons were cartoons for me back then. I've been hooked on anime ever since, and 15 years later I still try to keep up with the est titles that come out.
well as a very little kid i watched My Neighboor Totoro, and fell in love with the different way of drawing. and started looking for it already then. i have been collecting anime since. soon after i started collecting manga too. and with manga my interst for drawing my self came.. been pretty much into pop japanese culture ever since!.
I was watching Thundercats, speedracer, and voltron but never knew that they were considered a different style of animation, Anime. When I was about 10 years old I started watching the original Dragon Ball and then the followup series DBZ. I also would see weird animated movies on hbo every now and then that were very serious and adult oriented, not that bullshit superman and batman are good so they never die stuff.
After that I just watched any anime that looked good. Then I got Anime on Demand and I fell in love with the shit.
Astroboy when I was very little? I dunno, i've just always liked it.
First was Dragonball years ago then Dragonball Z when it came to cartoon network. Then it was the Adult Swim shoes. Now its whatever i can get my mits on. The internet is a wonderful thing.
back when sci-fi channel used to show anime
Watching robotech when I was a kid got me my first dose of anime. Years down the line, my buddies got me to watch Akira (first anime I saw with subtitles).
Okay I got into Anime because I like to draw and anime and drawing comes hand in hand! ....I draw alot of anime now......and the first anime I watched that got me to like anime was a old anime called Noozles and sailor moon have to admit it...if it wasn't for these animes I would never of known!
