I believe my introduction to anime came with Toonami during the late 90s and early 2000s, though I primarily heard about it through the internet. My first two anime movies that I remember were Akira and Ghost in the Shell, two quite violent cyberpunk flicks. I also ended up catching a show on cable called Cyber City Oedo 808, which was also quite violent as hell. Hentai stuff was out of my reach for a while, thankfully. My favorite series back in the day were Dragon Ball Z (though its reputation for dragging out plots did turn me off after a while), Gundam Wing, Tenchi Muyo, and Cowboy Bebop. Bebop was especially a joy to watch, as I was on a huge John Woo kick back then, and several of the episodes had Spike going up against the Red Dragon in Heroic Bloodshed fashion.

A very understandable sentiment, truly.

Back in highschool, a friend of mine kept talking about Anime and I just remember looking at him all confused because I didn't know what he was talking about. But once I started watching the shows he was talking about, I was instantly hooked.

I think the first anime I ever watched was Pokemon, way back in the day. But that was before I even realised it was Japanese.

The first anime I intentionally watched was Naruto, after my older brother recommended it to me, and I've been obsessed ever since.

Saturday morning cartoons like Sailor Moon, Digimon, and Kirby. I didn't even know what anime was until I was quite a bit older and the shows had switched to stuff like Pokemon, Yugioh, and Shaman King. By that point I was hooked and my best friend introduced me to more shows like Naruto, Inuyasha, and Vampire Knight. I began playing the Yugioh CCG, branched into JRPGs like Final Fantasy and Tales of, and later got into visual novels by stumbling across Phantom Seeds somehow. I didn't make it into the anime convention scene until I was an adult, but I have a few cosplays under my belt. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be an anime fan forever as there's very few non animated shows that interest me.

I never got into anime through the morning cartoons or popular shounen (Naruto, One Piece etc) which, on the contrary, I was always annoyed to see on TV instead of the shows I liked...

However, I got into anime a couple years ago through the game (and anime) Valkyria Chronicles, which brought me later on to Girls und Panzer, Black Lagoon and Kantai Collection, and I began sinking deeper and deeper into the anime fandom... Now, I've got 100+ anime titles and 25-30 VNs under my belt (my first one was Everlasting Summer because I've always been interested in Soviet history) and I've never looked back!

I got into it because when I was younger, all I really had to watch was Amazon Instant Video on my mom's computer and since it has a pretty big anime library I clicked on one, probably Princess Tutu but Inuyasha or Fruit's Basket if not. Then my older brother probably found out about it and introduced me to more anime because he's a weeb. My memories from back then are pretty fuzzy. I got into non-vn anime games from my older bro from playing Blazeblue and Tales of Vesperia on the Xbox 360. Also let me just say that the Vesperia switch port announcement has been the happiest I've been in a while...I got into visual novels a bit later. One of the earliest I remember playing was Ripples and for a couple of years I really just played the quaint few visual novels that were on phones, like Stellaren, and then I got my own computer and started playing Narcissu and stuff.
