Your First Anime


#1

What was your first anime? and do you ever revisit it?


#2

I suppose a lot of people would be surprised, but my first anime series that I watched was the Bleach dub in 2006.


#3

Battle of the Planets, Later known as G-Force.

Yes I did revisit the Anime when it was shown on Cartoon Network.
Warning MatureOnly looking to see if G3 would have her panties showing.


#4

I have seen some anime before, but the one that brought me to TAN and into anime in a more serious manner was RahXephon. The first episode had me asking ‘WTF’ and I had to watch more.

(I was actually going to respond to this sooner, but something happened and it wouldn’t let me post. :< )

It seems that barely anyone has actually seen my first anime from asking around. It was Magical Pokaan, or the “more proper title”: Renkin 3-kyu Magical? Pokan. This was the first anime I watched all the way through, so I count it as my first. (Since I didn’t watch Pokémon or DBZ at all as a child. :blush: ) However, this was not the title that got me interested since I didn’t even know what anime was back then. :stuck_out_tongue:
As for revisiting it? I haven’t in the past, and don’t really have any plans to in the future. :s

The first anime I ever saw, I’m pretty sure was Akira. When I was like 5 and it freaked me out.

But, the first anime I watched all the way through was Trigun. And yes, I’ve watched it about 30 times. And it’s still one of the best I’ve seen.


#7

First Anime was Gigantor, in glorious Black & White.

The first complete Anime for me was Speed Racer.

Way too old, but still loving this stuff.

#11

The first anime I ever watched was Tokoyo mew mew and I haven’t watched it since, though I do have a friend who is obbssessed with it so I still hear about it al the time.


#12

I watched Speed Racer and Voltron when I was a kid without even knowing they were animes. But when I was in high school someone showed me a grainy, bootleg, VHS copy of Akira and even the crap quality couldn’t hide that I was looking at the coolest thing I had ever seen. Been hooked ever since.


#13

My first anime was Digimon. I didn’t even know it was an anime until some years ago.
And yeah I try to see the full season but I can’t find it any where :frowning:


#14

First anime watched Sailor Moon.

Reading this is making me feel old Mew Mew and Bleach, wow.

I can’t imagine how the BotP and Speed Racer fans feel.


#15

Not to mention Astro Boy and Gigantor…

Astro Boy, that one was after my Dad bought us a new console TV. It’s “big” color screen was 22"!

Tobor, how could I have forgotten that! That was another “Early Sunday Morning, before the Preachers gear up” show. Got a chuckle out of tobor | robot when I first hear it.

I didn’t get to see all of either of those, got shuffled around between home and two different Grandmothers a lot in those days. Only at home did I have a chance of catching them.

Thanks Newshawk for triggering yet another flood of good memories.
