My first anime (back in 3rd grade) was the infamous sailormoon. :D its was my first taste of shoujo (and anime for that matter) and i was really into it. the glamour of magical girls and a bishounen in tuxedo got to my nine-year old mind. XD this was followed by others like Super Boink (yes yes super boink), Ranma 1/2 and Saint Tail. i only got to appreciate shounen a bit later with dragonball~ :)

Definitely Ranma 1/2. I watched all the other animes before Ranma 1/2 but it was really this anime that made me want to become an artist. And now i am. ^_^

My very first anime loves were Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z. Kind of a weird combination, but they were on Toonami every afternoon when school got out! I used to watch both of those shows every single day and eventually I started looking into many other anime ^^

The thing that really showed me into anime was a game called Gaia Online. It's a game based on alot of the same things. It has a whole forum dedicated to Manga/Anime/Comics. And that's where I got my love of Anime.

sailormoon and this dragon ball z got me to anime. i dont know why i liked the latter cause i realize now that i dont like it. after those two are ghost fighter, lupin, ranma 1/2, vision of escaflowne and curious play. i still love to watch anime today, but not as much as i love to watch then.

Oh honeymishi07.... your judgment is really terrible.... exaggerated.... Sailormoon is so nice.... I can see that you don't like anymore comics your read many years ago, but consider them infamous.... Me too I like Ranma 1/2 and Dragonball, but my favourite are Lamù and Lupin III. I love Lamù, her strange and crazy world.

Me too. My first was ailormoon. At 2nd grade I have already memorized the opening and ending song of that anime. It makes me laugh when I imagine those times that I was really addicted to that anime. Second to that was the anime Yuyu Hakusho (Ghost Fighter). My older brother always watch so I have no choice but to watch it also and it is such a good anime. I also watch Super Boink. I was really young by that time when that anime was shown on national tv.

My first show was Sailormoon. Major hit, can't miss it. Because of that anime I start collecting Sailormoon collectibles and get into watching other animes as well. The next is Yuyu Hakusho, great anime, I watch it from the beginning to the end. And of course another reason is because Sailormoon's mangaka Naoko Takeuchi is Yuyu Hakusho's mangaka's wife. I'd like to say that their work really gets me. Then a bit later I get into Dragonball. Still watching it's reruns.

Probably Dragon Ball Z. ^_^ but i've already been watching Voltes V with my brother on the late 90's when it was showed here in Pinas. But as far as really being glued to weekly series, it was really Ranma 1/2 and SailorMoon that got me hooked up to anime ^_^

I'm just now getting into anime because my kids have always watched it. I totally loved Sailor Moon. Originally, I was recording the show while my kids were at school. Before long, I wasn't just recording but watching the show as well.
