My first anime I ever watched was Bleach. It got me hooked to anime hahah! I have no regrets lol!


^ That's the anime that got me back into the groove of watching anime again. Wow. Afterwards I was like I have to find others like this! 6 years later still love anime and more than ever. Nice 1st choice.


I actually started with manga and I used to read more manga than watching anime. The first manga I read was detective conan so that was the starting point for me to being an otaku. Thinking back it was 16 years ago. Lol.

My first anime i watched was Sailor Moon and i loved it so much i fell in love with anime after that :)


I think the first one I saw was Yugioh on 4Kids, but it was Dragonball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Ranma 1/2 that first got me into anime :3

I watched shows like Pokemon and YuGiOh as a kid but it wasn't until I randomly clicked on an anime on Netflix (I think it was either Fruits Basket or High School of the Dead) that I became interested in anime.

(Hi! Chou-chan here!) Since some of the family were anime fans, I was disposed as a kid to Cardcaptor Sakura and Mermaid Melody.


Well, technically it was a manga that I read first, that then got me into anime in general. It was Jing: King of Bandits. I couldn't find the anime of the series at the time, but the first anime I've ever seen was Mobile Suit Gundam Wing on Adult Swim. HOOKED INSTANTLY!
