    Aside from mainstream dubbed anime that I watched when I was a kid (Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball, Pokemon), anime never really interested me, and I'd even kind of avoided it as I got older. I've always liked things tangentially related to anime (like Pokemon), but I guess I always paid too much attention to some of the negative stereotypes that you see of anime.

    Then about a month ago, a friend recommended a series to me, and I figured I'd give it a chance, so I downloaded Crunchyroll. It turned out the series wasn't even on there, but I'd already signed up for the free premium trial, so I wanted to find at least one series to watch. Fast forward to now and I've binged through 6 different series totaling ~120 episodes, so I guess there's no looking back. I never ended up watching that series my friend recommended, and to be honest, I don't even remember what it was, haha.

        I always liked Pokemon and Digimon as a kid. I think I told some friends in middle school and they introduced me to Blue Exorcist and that was when I entered the hole.

          I was always drawn to the artstyle of anime, and that's probably what got me into it.

          The first adult-oriented anime I watched was probably Your Lie in April. It was a really good show with a very depressing ending.

          That said, most anime I watch are comedies, which reflects my taste in western cartoons.

            Other than Pokemon, my first couple anime were Attack on Titan and Sword Art Online. I wasn't really into anime even after watching them, even though I loved those shows at the time.

            Once I started taking Japanese classes at my university, I started watching Hunter x Hunter on a friend's recommendation and decided to go down that rabbit hole to practice listening comprehension.

              Flashback to a young Storm, who in his youth, hadn't quite come to terms with his sexuality (trust me, it is slightly pertinent to the story lol)

              Suddenly thrust out of his comfort zone by having to attend a new school halfway through his freshman year, he struggles to fit in. He meets a girl, she had that nerdy flair that one could detect from miles away, and Storm does indeed take notice. She was cute, and he was desperate. He spies a small lanyard on her hip, and from it, dangles a swordsman dressed in a flashy black coat with two swords.

              As a way to endear her to him, Storm went home and spent a long time searching for the name of the character, eventually discovering him to be Kirito, and he was from an....anime? Huh, Storm thought he'd try to watch the show so he would have a way to talk to the girl, and that's how I got into anime.

              I wanted to be able to talk to a girl because I had a crush on her :P And now I'm gay. Not because of her or anything. Just mean to say her and I didn't really work out >.> We still talk about anime all the time, though.

                  the first anime which made me watch anime is probably fairytail. I personally think it is a great anime for getting started into the community as the animation style and the story is really addicting.myanimelist

                    Pokémon is what got me into anime, way back in October '99 (very specific!). Then I started watching Cardcaptors and Digimon and then went from there.
