The lights are on
Maybe you can't read Japanese, but you don't have to in order to appreciate anime or to hang out here. Talk with others about your favorite manga, movies, and artists.
same as a lot of people in the 90s it was mainly DBZ YUGIOH AND POKEMON all at the same time...
Lets see... it was Yugioh when it came out on KidsWB then Neon Genesis & Lupin III on Adult Swim
((you know stay up past your bedtime getting the thrill of watching something you think you shouldnt) now i have H.o.t.D thanks Lupin)
Pokemon! Got to catch them alllll POKEMON!
My first anime was Black Cat.....I loved that book!
Speaking of which, I'm looking for another saga to get in to. Any suggestions?
Well... I'm probably "carbon dating" myself here but, "Battle of the Planets" AKA "Gatchaman" AKA "G-Force" was the very first anime I've witnessed as a child... The series debuted in the states back in the late 70's early 80's... It was an adaptation of Science Ninja Team (1972) which aired in Japan during the early 70's... Yeah, I'm old ;)
Rosario + vampire is a good series and Sword Art Online series is good too. I hear that the best version is the light novels though
DBZ was the first anime I've seen. That was the start of it all...
My Neighbor Totoro, I was 4 and 20th Century Fox had released the movie on VHS with a pretty great dub (I couldn't stand the Disney dub when it came out because I grew up with the 20th century dub) I guess they were playing it on one of the TV's at an electronics store and my grandma noticed that I was enjoying it and bought a copy for me, I still have the VHS and its a nice reminder of my Grandma now that she's slipping into a state of demensia and Alzheimer's

I think the first time I've seen it Anime is Dragon Ball Z, or maybe is Yu-Gi-Oh.
My first was Dragon Ball Z even though I didn't realize until years later what anime even was
Other than Pokemon and yugioh. The first anime I ever saw and acknowledged as an anime was The Prince of Tennis when I was somewhere in between 7 and 9. Made me want to play tennis and I still play tennis today
I like breath and exist and stuff
