Naruto, but this show is what actually started making me watch anime in general

Dragonball Z though I didn't know it was anime at the time. Inuyasha was the first thing I watched that I knew was anime.

this guy has a point, I definitely watched DBZ or Pokemon first but didn't think of it as "anime" just more cartoons. I also used to watch... I actually don't remember its name, the one with the magical pegasus/unicorn warriors? Saint something? I loved Sailor Moon too.

First show I watched that I specifically thought "this is anime, this is from japan in japanese" was probably Naruto? I really can't recall when I made that switch from considering shows cartoons to anime.

Pokemon and Digimon technically, but I had no idea they were any different from the other cartoon shows I watched. Not much later I watched some Patlabor in a kid's channel. I think it was Fox Kids.

It was only in highschool when my friends introduced me to Naruto. My buddy lent me a CD-R with the first season. They were in RMVB format. After that they introduced me to more entry-level shows such as Elfen Lied, Chobits and Hellsing. I had less than 15 shows under my belt by the time I found /a/ and started watching seasonal stuff with the board. Now I am just short of 500.

For most people in my generation it was the same. Everyone started with those shows and then either lost interest or moved on to become fully-fledged weebs.

Same thing for Visual Novels. Started with Yume Miru Kusuru, then moved on to Katawa Shoujo(the demo), Fate/Stay Night, and Ever 17. The rest is history.

On TV I don't remember. Probably something like Dragon Ball or Pokemon.

The first one I watched outside of broadcast television was Yu Yu Hakusho from a disk a friend of my brother hooked us up with.

The first one I went after on the internet on my own back in the day was probably Golden Boy, but maybe it could have been Love Hina.

Captain Tsubasa in the early 90s because l'm not a fucking american that only got into anime when it became shit.

Hayate no Gotoku
I started watching anime with Hayate S1 and was a Mariafag till the manga ended. The manga was a shitshow but I always kept myself updated just for a chance to see my waifu in it. And then the manga ended with only Hayate and Nagi. Fuck you Hata.

Doraemon maybe? I also remember some anime with a wolf and a one-eyed flying monster thing. I think there might have been a dinosaur of some sort dying while standing. It's been near 20 years since I've seen anything about it and I don't think I'll ever see it again.

I never got the name. It was some 90's mecha anime where the pilots would frequently be tentacle raped inside their cockpit.

Definitely Pokemon, Digimon, and DBZ. I watched DBZ religiously and rented just about every tape Blockbuster had on the franchise, and I still have a Red Ribbon saga tape sitting around at home somewhere. Tuned into Pokemon daily, still have my Pikachu gameboy somewhere. Digimon World on the Playstation was my childhood, so I got my dad to get a bunch of ripped DVD compilations of Adventure 1 & 2 as well as Tamers. Watched shit like YYH and Cowboy Bebop on TV whenever I happened to notice later on. Didn't think about what anime was until as late as Naruto showing up on Cartoon Network, specifically because of the network's sudden marketing of the show and the ad's pronunciation of the name vs. how it was said in the show.

The first anime I went out of my way to watch was FMA. After that, early Youtube was my friend for a bunch of garbage I don't remember up until high school. I typed up all this less as an answer to this thread and more because it was fun remembering what I did as a kid.

Angewomon is best girl.

Pokemon doesn't count, so it was CCS. She was my first waifu and I loved every fucking second of that show. I remember eating in like 5 minutes just so I could go up to my room and watch it.

It technically was either DBZ or Naruto, but I never liked them or watched voluntarily. And there were the Miyazaki movies on TV.

The first anime I found by myself and watched was Black Lagoon... or Girls und Panzer.
>>
Probably DBZ but outside of Toonami the first anime I ever sat down and watched because I knew it was anime was Deen/Stay Night when I was 11

And boy when I finished it and found out it was based off of a porn game I spent pretty much the rest of the day masturbating to as many of the cgs as I could find
>>
Sailor Moon or DBZ in the late 90s on Toonami, it's been so long I can't remember which.

pokemon
but the first series i completed was probably 'girls bravo'

The brought a bunch of cartoons over in the 80's but i didnt think of them as anime or even knew they were from japan. The first thing i remember is watching Vampire Hunter D on the original sci-fi channel back in 1993.
>>
Watamote, saw her posted a lot on /v/ and on /tv/ and decided to visit /a/ too. You had a lot of Attack on Titan threads back then and I liked the tight white pants Mikasa and Annie wore, some Free hate with nice shitposting... and then came Kill la Kill, Non Non Biyori and Valkyria Romance and I decided to stay here. It was more comfortable here than in Man of Steel or Dragon's Crown threads.

My first non-normie (from local tv) was Love Hina.

Moomin when I was young.

Voltron or something similar.

Voltron technically. The first one I sought out that wasn't on Cartoon Network was Rosario Vampire, and i watched it dubbed. Turns out that was a very poor choice all around.
>>
Probably Pokemon and Digimon as my first
but the first anime i did watch as an anime would be Bleach and Zero no Tsukaima

I always watched Cardcaptor Sakura (just Cardcaptors where I was) and Pokemon on Saturdays because it was on before some other cartoons I also watched. I think I was around 9 or 10. I never told anyone I liked Sakura because I was scared they would call me gay.

To this day I can still sing the english opening song.
