I would say my first Anime was My Neighbor Totoro when I was 3 or 4.
After that was Ranma 1/2
Followed by Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki
All of which were somewhere between 3-6.
I was Bred a Otaku lol.

Slap, from Maryland. 26 years old.
I was an otaku before I really knew what anime was. I knew I enjoyed series like DBZ, Yu yu Hakusho and such, but I did not know there was a whole name/culture with it until a friend of mine told me what anime was when I was a sophomore in high school. My first anime when I knew what anime was is probably Rurouni Kenshin. I know for a fact Chronicles of the Cursed Sword was my first real manga series because I borrowed it from said friend and I currently have a fair amount of the series. (Unfortunately, the series is no longer interesting to me)

I don't count anything from Toonami.

That being said...I think the first anime I bought was Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust at like, 13 or 14 from Suncoast, I think it was called. Some DVD store. Matter of fact I remember standing there, trying to look inconspicuous as I perused the anime DVDs, like I was actually looking for pornos or something. I'd pretend to look at other stuff until people left the vicinity and went back to looking.

Think I ended up with Vampire Hunter D 1 and 2, at least one of the original Hellsing, and a Yu Yu Hakusho DVD before that place shut down.

Then there was Anime Unleashed on G4. I barely remember any of that though, except Bubblegum Crisis and Betterman.

Gundam Wing, watching it greatly pushed me towards anime more then others at the time did.
