Dragon Ball anyone? Although back then I didn't even know about anime... If we're talking about actually knowing we were watching anime - Bleach.

[SIZE="a"]My first anime was Dragon Ball Z. Of course then I was too young to really understand the plot, but the good guys beating up the bad guys was enough for me. I understood it... Just not very well :p it was easier to just indulge myself in mindless cartoon violence.

The first anime I watched knowing that it was anime was Inuyasha. Pretty awesome, one of my favorites too. Perhaps because it was what started me on anime in the first place.

As for the first subbed anime, it w as Wolfs Rain. I had remembered seeing a few episodes on AS so I went and hunts down the anime and watched it from start to finish. I couldn't find dubs, so I watched the subbed ones. That was before I realized how bad most dubs are.[/SIZE]

Depends, but the one I seriously remember back when I was like what 5?

Was Aoi Blink: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aoi_Blink

Quote:
The story opens with the meeting between our hero, Kakeru, and a mystical pony named Blink. Kakeru saves Blink from a thunder shower and in gratitude, Blink tells him that if he is ever in trouble, all Kakeru needs to do is call out his name and he will appear. At the end of the summer when Kakeru returns home, his father, a writer of children's stories, is kidnapped. Kakeru, weeping, calls out Blink's name and, as promised, Blink immediately appears, and the two set out on the trail of Kakeru's father. Only at the end, when Kakeru woke up from his deep sleep found out that all his adventures with Blink was only his father’s writings that shown in his dreams
Seriously, I remember how I was so deeply into the show that it was the first time I cried over..."a cartoon." The ending was just too much for a young kid like me back then. Even now I would freaking cry since it's somewhat like Angel Beats. .__.

What was the first anime you watched, knowing that it was anime?
Pokemon of course.

What was the first anime you watched with subs?

Gatekeepers. Really good stuff in AXN Asia back then.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gate_Keepers

Quote:
The story is set in 1969, a period of time in which Japan is experiencing intense economic and social development after the end of World War II in 1945. Unbeknownst to humans, alien/interdimensional beings have emerged with plans to take over the world by sending numerous agents to wreak havoc in cities, turning people into robotic minions. They are referred to as "Invaders" (インベーダー Invēdā?).
In an attempt to confront the Invaders and defend the planet; an elite but highly secret organization of peace-keepers called the Alien Exterminating Global Intercept System (more commonly known as A.E.G.I.S.), was set up with special funding from the government. They rely on the ability of "Gate Keepers", who have the power to open dimensional "gates" of a paranormal energy that give them their superpowers. These superpowers are the only weapons that have any effect on Invaders.
Although A.E.G.I.S. has branches around the world, the series focuses on the Far East division in Japan. The headquarters of the Far East branch of A.E.G.I.S. lies beneath Tategami High School, a facade created by the organization to mask the active recruitment of new Gate Keepers. Since many of the candidates were High School students, the location allowed the agents to be enrolled in school and be available for a mission at a moment's notice.

Inspector Gadget <3

EDIT: Hi there, digi-kun here with a fun fact involving this to drive it over the 25 character limit.
While Inspector Gadget was indeed created to be an American cartoon, most of the animation was actually done in Japan and Taiwan, therefore technically counting it as as an anime, similar to the Yugioh movie being pushed by 4kids.

I was a kid back then and I never knew what the hell is an anime and what's not.
I believe the first one is either DragonBall or Pokemon. My first Anime I watched, knowing it is, was Pokemon. For me, Pokemon is exceptional and my first Non-Pokemon Anime was Death Note.

What was the first anime you watched?
VOLTRON! -I was really young when I saw it though, don't remember much about it.

DBZ is my favourite from my childhood. such a great show. Gonna be picking up DBZ-Kai soon.



What was the first anime you watched, knowing that it was anime?
Possibly DBZ? I can't really pin down when I found out what anime was. It's an odd question. Maybe naruto.

What was the first anime you watched with subs?
Hmm... I can't really remember. I don't think I've really watched subbed anime. I always watch stuff on TV, while multitasking on my computer, so reading was out of the equasion.

Actually, back in the day, I did watch through subbed DBZ movies- if that counts.

Rurouni Kenshin and Dragonball Z - Anime was fairly new to America at that time, so choices were limited. but I think its safe to say it was the former that got me really hooked; I just loved the story and the characters.

Aside from the original Pokemon Anime, my first ones were probably Dragon Ball and Gundam, around the late 90's-early 2000's or so.

I am going to exclude Pokemon, YGO and DBZ to be honest as they are mainstream. So the first anime I ever got into was one called Elfen Lied lol. I was listening to music on youtube and found an AMV of it and all the blood and gore intrigued me so much, I decided to watch it XD

1. What was the first anime you watched?

Pokémon (shocking, I know). The show really did wonders for anime way back when.

2. What was the first anime you watched, knowing that it was anime?

Shuffle! Though oddly enough I've still never gotten around to finishing it.

3. What was the first anime you watched with subs?

None. I've watched a few episodes of Pokémon with subtitles (specifically the banned ones) but that's about it. I just can't seem to get into animes with subtitles, mostly because it's a different language that I'm not used to. If I ever do watch an anime with subtitles it'll probably be Lucky Star.
