Hi all, How long have been a Animme fan? How much are you into it? What was the first Anmmie you saw in your life? For me it was Gigator and Star Blazers. Do you just watch in on tv only or do you also collect ammime as well such buy it for a store or order it on-line. I mostly order mine on-line.

I've been an anime fan when I was in grade school. I love watching Sailor Moon during that time. As of this moment I'm already 25 years old but I still like to watch anime. I think i will be a fan for life.

Hmm. I don't know exactly how long I've been watching anime, but I think it's been awhile. The first actual anime that I go into was Dragonball and Dragonball Z. Back then I thought they were more like cartoons, but learned more as I got into it a bit more. I don't buy my anime, nor do I usually buy my manga(From a store at least). I'll get manga/Anime from friends, or something. Usually I wont buy it directly from the store. I may occasionally watch it on the television, or on a site that offers the episodes(Perhaps I miss one). I read manga more than I actually watch Anime. Anyways. Yeah. Have a great day.

I watched anime since still a kid, maybe more than 20 years. The first anime I watched should be Hananoko Runrun or Ikkyu, well, I am a elder person who liked to watch anime here maybe. For anime which I like not only watch on TV but also collect it as a set. Because I always the original version of dub is the best.

Does Doraemon count? If not, my first few animes are Dragonball, Sailormoon, Ranma 1/2, Tenchi Muyo etc... At that time, I was around 13 -14 years old (looking back, it's 15 years back)... Initially, I watched the above on our local tv channels (all dubbed in Chinese). As I grow older, I started to buy animes VCDs & DVDs (DVDs are much later around the year 2000) to watch. Some are bought from local VCD/DVD stores, while some others are bought from online forum member who import the DVDs from overseas.

i'm an anime fan for almost 17 years now. the first anime that really caught my attention was nadia: secret of blue water & zenki. i used to watched anime but those 2 really got me addicted to anime. and after that, i have watched many more anime that i already forgot some of the titles. its really fun to watch those cartoons coz their storylines are great.

I think i have been watching anime since grade school days. The anime that i've seen then is "Zenki". But i skipped 2-3 years because i got hooked up to games. Then my friend re-introduced me to anime. My comeback anime was Ghostfighter or Yuyu Hakusho. Some anime that i like are Law of Ueki, Wolf's rain, Full Metal Panic, Fate: Stay night and Beck: The Monggolian Chop Squad. I'm currently watching Naruto and bleach right now (i don't read manga because i hate spoilers .

I have been an anime fan for a few years. My brother got me interested in watching a few shows because he is big on anime and manga. I first watched Inuyasha and enjoyed it, now I watch that, Ghost In The Shell, Wolves rain (or something like that). and some other ones I can't think of the names.

Hello there my friend, how are you doing? For me i have been an anime' fan when i was a kid. Me and my brothers would watch Dragon ball Z and Sailor Moon. The rest that we watch are Samurai X, Yakitate Japan, Cooking Master Boy, Bleach and Naruto. My youngest brother likes to watch Naruto, Bleach and Cooking Master Boy a lot. He got a dvd of those too, like a compilation of series of those anime. And now that i can't watch these things here now because it is not available , i am still ok with that. Not that avid fan, but enjoying when i get the chance to see Yakitate Japan online. Happy Mylotting!

At this point of my life, I never had anime fave. I used to go for traditional cartoon characters.
