Hello! My name is Katie, and I just turned 18.
I'd say inuyasha, because that's the first show that I recognized as anime. Ya I watched yugioh and pokemon but I just saw them as cartoons at the time.

Probably pokemon at an early age. Later on it might have been Full Metal panic Fumoffu

pretty sure i saw "anime" before becoming an Otaku, but the one (in that relation) that fully turned me? Dragonball Franchise ... don't care if it's not original, i remember in the old days, seeing Goku, Future Trunks, and Vegeta go super saiyan for the first time

omfg, still gives me chills

Heyyyy lovely here from CA~

The first anime I watched - before I even knew what anime was - was Sailor Moon and Yu Yu Hakusho (still one of my favs) <3

Hi, I'm Aaron.
I watched a lot of Yu Gi Oh when I was younger but I watched it like it was any other cartoon, not knowing it was an anime. The first anime I watched knowing it wasn't just an ordinary cartoon was Elfen Lied, which I watched when I was 10-11 (Thank my irresponsible big brother for that...). I know it was pretty intense for how young I was but I loved it and made me the otaku I am today :)
