Your First Anime? Other Than Pokemon :)

I remember my first anime, it just happened to be yuri. Strawberry Panic, I freaking loved that series. It got me addicted. After that I later enjoyed animes such as Blue Drop, Elfen Lied (where I heard my now favorite song for life, "lilium"), THis Ugly Yet Beautiful World, Spice and Wolf, Shuffle: the boy who could be a god or a demon, Angel Beats, Air(so sad!), Clannad and Clannad Afterstory, Kannazuki no Miko, Kanon, Ouran Highschool Host Club, Fruits Basket, Higurashi no naku koro ni (and kai), Sasameki koto, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star(oh boy...:D), Myself;Yourself, YuruYuri, School Days(okay i didnt really enjoy this one :/ ), and many more. My favorite movie is also Spirited Away, love that film. Love noh face! So cute and creepy at the same time! :p

O.o, I've been meaning to watch Spice and Wolf! (I'm actually surprised that I've seen about 1/3 of the ones on your list ... I've only been watching for a few months)

The first anime besides Yugioh, Pokemon, and Digimon was Dream Eater Merry. Shortly after that I watched Guilty Crown.

Despite being a guy I've seen the first several episodes of Strawberry Panic and I liked them quite a bit.

I just noticed the date of this post. lol

The first anime I watched was Spirited Away. Hayao Miyazaki is a genius! I love his films. And my first anime series was Spice and Wolf. And my all time favourite is Ao no Exorcist and of course Bleach :)

After going through my first set anime series like Pokemon, Digimon, Sailor Moon, Yu-Gi-Oh etc it was Full Metal Alchemist the original series

My first was Sailor Moon. I wonder if people remember Hamtaro, I mean I thought it was really an adorable show.

and i LOVE YURUYURI!!!!!!

my first was bleach

My first FINISHED anime was fruits basket! >.< I'm finishing Death Note tho!( ^.^)

My first official anime I finished was Ultra Maniac.

i watched a few since poke mon. digimon , al the dragon ball series up to gt. my fav at the moment is helsing but i want to watch elfin lied, and the rest of helsing

My first anime was Sailor Moon when it aired in toonami I was 10 or so I bought the entire collection including the three movies a few years ago cause I still love it.. I also liked Spirited Away and I lovee Howl's Moving castle and of course Death Note : )

my first anime that i watched when i was young was hihi puffy ami yumi. i still like it, but later in life i started watching naruto, and than after that bleach and alot of other anime shows. i read the manga as well, but i like the anime better.

My first must have been Candy Candy or Gatchaman. Much later I got into anime after watching Shinzo and Gundam Wing.

My first was Gilgamesh or Akira

My first was Rurouni Kenshin. Man, I love that series, but then Ouran High School Host Club, Vandread, Fruits Basket, Kyo Kara Maoh, Kaze no Stigma and many more haha.

Shugo Chara x3

Avatar, my mother got me into that one, I saw the entire series about 4 times. <br />
after that one of my cousin's friends got me into death note, and immediately after, Higurashi.

Wolf's Rain, if I remember correctly. It was quite good and it got me into other animes. Quite early I came across Elfen Lied, though I was a little too young to see it legaly back than... Strawberry Panic was also quite nice, a little bit strange at first but you get into it once you learn to accept that the rules in animes are not the same as those of the "real world". There were countless others, but I would say that Elfen Lied, Higurashi no naku koro ni and Black Lagoon were the most memorable ones. And Puella Magi Madoka Magica was also really great, but I am wandering of topic, so I'll stop here.

Good answer ;)

My first anime was Sailor moon when I was too young to know what anime was, but Code Geass was the series I watched that got me into anime.

hmm my first anime was sailor moon and dragon Ballz then came Samurai X with kenchin then came the rest like sakura, shakugan no shana, fate zero, fate stay night, vampire knight, death note, bleach, naruto, my hyme, trinity blood etc... :) nonetheless :)

I think Ronin Warriors or Transformers.

Dragon ball, still my fav. <br />
and Spice and wolf kicks ***.

My first two anime's were Ninja Scroll and Fist of the northstar :)

Well my favorite is still of the very first anime's ever seen on TV in the US. That would be Astroboy.

dragon ball Z, when it was on tv even though i didn't know it was anime at that time.

Cowboy bebop was first then full metal alchemist then all the other ones after,and spirited away is one of my favorite movie was amazing

My first anime was Cardcaptor Sakura :) I think i was 10 when i watched it and it was the moment when i started watching amine:) 2nd Dragon ball z, 3rd Shaman King etc.

Wow..that is going back aways..Besides just the regular ones they showed on TV like Sailor Moon and Dragonball..I believe it was the Rurouni Kenshin's still one of my favourites, haha.

Robotech, when Toonami first premiered on Carton Network. The one that made an anime fan out of me however was Sailor Moon.

Princess Mononoke

Love tht movie

Me too. Have you seen Tekkonkinkreet?

No I haven't. I'll check it out

Definitely worth watching.

does the Macross SDF series and g <br />
force count as Anime?

Not sure, I don't know them

lol old old school

Ronin Warriors

then later toonami would bring Dragonball Z and Sailor Moon

My first anime was Card Captors and it will always be the anime that influenced me the most. That and Tokyo Mew Mew. :3 I still remember how I use to wish upon a star to become a Card Captor like Sakura. Hahaha, Man that brings back such nostalgic memories.

My first anime was Sailor moon and Dragon ball Z. Later I found the original version of sailor moon and liked it better, the one they had in Canada was edited harshly. Then Inuyasha and Avatar: the last airbender. <br />
Im also a fan of strawberry panic, its so cute!<br />
Right now I am watching Kuragehime, love love love!

I liked avatar too! My brothers made fun of me for watching it haha, and yay a fellow strawberry panic fanatic &lt;3

hahaha ya my brother never understood either. Out of the ones you listed which would you recommend to watch first most?

Oh definitely Clannad if you haven't seen it. Clannad, air, and Kanon are all by key animation and are wonderful with intricate story lines. You can see them all online. They are serious but have comic relief and great character arcs. But if you like gore, Elfen lied is good( I hate gore but somehow loved this anime). Ouran host club is hilarious and Kannazuki no Miko if you like yuri...the other ones are good but not my first recommendation.
