I think this depends.. The first anime that I watched was probably Sailor Moon, DBZ, Pokemon, Zoids...

 

The first anime that I watched that I was consciously aware of the fact that it was an anime, was probably Inuyasha. Hahaha... I remember the old days when it aired on Adult Swim at night on Cartoon Network. And I saw a commercial for it and was like "that looks interesting..." And when I looked into it, realized it was an anime and what anime really was.

Oh, god, trying to think of something that isn't like... pokemon or sailor moon. I just don't remember, but I DO remember I was terrified of cartoon network (channel 17!) because my mom accidentally flipped to that channel when I was like 8 and there were anime characters kissing.

 

One summer later, I stayed at my grandparents' house. I went into the living room and put a blanket over both the television and myself and watched things like Trigun, FLCL... it felt so liberating!! If my grandma knew, she would have killed me. I wish it still felt like that. Now I just watch anime every week with my boyfriend and my cat.

My first anime was Yamato Nadeshiko and it was dubbed to our native language so it was kinda sht. Like, srsly, our native dubs are effed up beyond saving.

Off-topic, but have you noticed how they use almost all the same voice actors for English dubs?

Probably Voltron back in the mid-80s.

 

Same, though probably 1988 or 1989 for me... if I remember correctly, one of my older brothers had some of it recorded on VHS. Following that I stumbled upon the original Dragon Ball run in 1995 - up to this point I didn't actually know what anime was.

 

The first time I started to hear about anime was in 1998, when a friend of mine started talking in hushed tones about the old Scifi channel's new saturday night anime feature, and of all of the incredible things that they'd witnessed on it. I was interested, so I decided to give it a shot. I was thus subjected to Project A-Ko (crap) and Demon City Shinjuku (crap!).

 

I wasn't impressed. Actually, I thought the whole thing was fairly horrible. It wasn't until that same friend invited me over later in the same year and introduced me to Tenchi Muyo (also crap, but I had lower standards at the time) that I particularly enjoyed anime without being completely ignorant of its origins.

not including things like Transformers and Pokemon (since as a kid I just referred to them as cartoons) my first true anime was Ghost in the Shell.
An anime is a cartoon. A Japanese-animated cartoon.

I didn't know what "anime" was until maybe the mid-90s, where I heard the term "Japanimation" and "Japanime". Edited by Guest
