What were some of the first anime series you've watched? Why did you watch the series? Did you continue to watch more series, especially subbed anime, or were you put off entirely? Share and discuss!

Before I actually knew what "anime" was, Sailormoon, Pokemon and Digimon were the first ones I watched. At that time, I was too young to realize there was a specific term so, technically, Inuyasha was my first official series and it was subbed. That night I was just flipping through channels until it came on and thankfully I continued watching it or else I wouldn't be the anime watching, manga reading nerd I am today :B From then on, I started watching other subbed series that was airing on that channel until I discovered streaming x: So now I only watch them subbed.
And who knows: starting a new journey may not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun

I believe the first anime I watched in my life was "Captain Tsubasa" and I don't exactly remember if I watched the whole series or not, but definitely lots of episodes.

Definitely Pokémon. If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have even known what anime is, probably. xD" Second would be Yu-Gi-Oh, and the third, I think, is Dragon Ball Z.

InuYasha as a result of a late night and a bowl of popcorn with my mom when I was like 12 and we lived at a Budget Suites. It was nice, though, because the next day we got my neighbor into it and then our other neighbor and some nights we'd spend an evening all together watching it on Adult Swim. I was the only kid interested, though? The rest were younger adults, sheesh. I didn't know it was anime obviously, just a cartoon. That's what got me looking into it later and viola, animefandave!

Bleach. I don't know why, though I think it was because my friend was into it and recommended it to me? Something like that. They also recommended Hunter x Hunter to me like a year before I eventually watched it.

Pokemon and Sailor Moon, back before I knew what anime even was. When I was 13 I learned it was actually called anime, and after that got into DBZ, Yugioh, and Inuyasha, and the rest is history. xD

First anime series, hm.. when I moved to the US I think DBZ, Tenchi Muyo, Cardcaptors, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Pokemon were some of the first I've seen and were also the series to really get me into anime. Probably some more I'm forgetting but these four were my life as a kid.

First subbed anime I saw was the original FMA in 2003/4 or so!

Pokémon was definitely not my first anime, nor Dragonball. I'm going to say that it was Saint Seiya(Knights of the Zodiac) I loved that anime to death and I always wanted to be Sagittarius.

Other than Pokemon, the first I watched in Japanese was actually Sword Art Online, some fanboy recommended it to me saying "it was the best ever!!!" This was actually when it was still airing, before the 2nd arc started, so I guess it hadn't gotten too bad yet.

The first ever anime that I watched when I was much younger was a program known as Tokyo Mew Mew, or in English, Mew Mew Power. I don't know why I liked it, but it was fascinating to see them transform into their Mew forms and then seeing them fight the monsters created by the 'baddies', more commonly known as Kishu, Taruto and Pai.

My first English voiced anime =D
I also liked it very much and was sad when it ended in half because no other episodes were dubbed =)
I watched it later with subs =D

I used to watch it on some lame TV channel, something like 'PipGirl' ... I cried at the end of the second season when ...

This is a spoiler. Do not click it unless you want the program to be spoiled, or you have seen it before.

Yea. That was very emotional scene, I never really liked him that much, I liked Ichigo with Aoyama but Dren was pretty likable character near the end =)

For me it was DBZ back around the early 2000s. First thing I said when watching it was wondering if this was what crack felt like.
