    My first animes are Pokémon and Dragon Ball, but the first one I saw completely, all chapters, was Rurouni Kenshin. Other than that, I usually watched Shaman King, Digimon, Ranma 1/2, Captain Tsubasa, Medabots and Yu Yu Hakusho before going to school or before going to bed.

    Please forgive my horrible english as it's not my primary language.

      Well I used to always watch Toonami when I was younger and the first one I saw is hard to tell since I saw so many. The first one I really got into was Naruto and I watched it every week. I also saw some Gundam, Full Metal Achemist, Cowboy Bebop, Prince of Tennis, Bobabo, and some weird hamster show. Seriously does anyone remeber an anime about hamster's adventures in some back yard. I loved the action in them, when your a kid Dragon Ball Z is the greatest thing ever. I did have some moments where I wondered "What is happening?" in the more mature moments.

        I think it was Voltes 5, or Lupin the 3rd. Although the 1st anime I cherished much when I was little was of course Pokemon.

              Pokemon. I started watching it when I was in first grade and have always loved it.

              From there, I started watching Hamtaro, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Dragonball Z. But my favorite was Tenchi Muyo! which is still my favorite anime to do this day.

                Probably Pokemon or Dragonball Z.

                Although Pokemon is more a cartoon and it's pretty garbage to be honest.

                  If I remember right, it was Pokemon. I then got into more when Toonami was doing its thing back in the day (Dragonball Z, Gundam Wing, Tenchi Muyo, Yu Yu Hakusho). A friend of mine then showed me a few other anime movies and series (3x3 eyes, Spirited Away, Akura, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Hellsing). The last anime I ever watched was Great Teacher Onizuka. I tried getting into Bleach in the beginning, but lost track of it after watching about 20 episodes of it.

                  I wouldn't like to count all the ones I just happened to watch as a kid such as Pokemon or Yugioh so I'd like to think my first anime was Death Note.

                    It was Beyblade. I remember I used to be such a fan and frisked my parents to buy me Beyblade toys and such; after which came Pokémon and DBZ.

                        Sailor moon when I was in grade school! ^^; I still love the characters though I haven't gone back and watched it at all. xD

                        I think it was Initial D. Bought the live action film first and then Third Stage on DVD. It was probably the coolest thing I've seen and have been hooked on the series and the iconic music featured on the series as a result.

                          Speed Racer aka Mach GO GO GO. Didn't know it was anime at the time.
                          Sailor Moon and Ronin Warriors were my first consciously-knowing they are non-American cartoon.

                            My first anime is Dragonball, Ghost Fighter, and Slamdunk. I was like 2 or 3 back then, I didn't watched Pokemon until I was 6.

                              Aside from Pokémon and something called Tanoshii Moomin Ikka, both of which I watched when I was very young, my first anime was Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.

                                Excluding shows that I used to watch a kid on Cheez TV (Pokemon, Dragonball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh, Digimon, etc..) my first experience with Anime as a late teen was.. Bleach, certainly not the best Anime, but not that bad either.

                                From there, I think I pretty much jumped into Death Note and Code Geass, and haven't stopped watching since then. I'd estimate at least 50~ different series' being under my belt by now, including all the mainstream stuff (naturally).

                                Well with the exception of pokemon and dbz (which i would have seen when i was 6-7ish i suppose back when cheese tv was around =3) the first show i saw that really got me into anime was Samurai Champloo, terrific series. Still remains among my favourate animes of all time.

                                If I can remember correctly, it was Saint Seiya and I used to watch this a lot as a kid.
