when i finally stopped watching toonami i rented Akira, ghost in the shell, and princess mononoke. after seeing these movies i went out and bought them all and have never watched toonami again! :D I was just wondering which animes all of you die-hards strated out on?

Bought the dubbed Gundam Wing from an online place. Grew out of that fairly quickly.

ps I say it would be project A-ko on the scifi channel, I only remember the ending episode of the sayan saga, and the seven cities of gold thing is jsut too far back to remember how much I watched it.

Evangelion. Saw a few ads in the back of game magazines, saw a few music videos, did some research on the series, and decided to download a few episodes off Hotline (ok,me and klinky were messing around with Windows networking exploits and leeched the whole series off some guy without his really knowing it. So sue us).

And that started it all. I watch less anime now than I did before previously, admittedly, but I'll start it back up one day.

My VERY first anime would have to be, RuRouni Kenshin. I was in Hong Kong for a vacation, and I was bored, so I watched this english dubbed Kenshin, and I enjoyed it a lot! My first episode was when Kenshin was facing Sano, this was when Sano had that HUGE look a like buster sword. I thought it was awesome. Then I brought the game and the mangas and it got me addicted into other animes. Kenshin rules!

dragonballz back in the old days i used to watch dragoball z on channel 11 at 7:00 in the morning it was no problem because i had to wake up to go to svhool so i would watch while getting ready for school. Then i got dish network and started watching new episodes of dragonball z and gundam wing. Then i got bored with all re-runs then when adult swim started i watched cowboy be bop and then i stop atching anime for a while and then i saw trigun and that opend my eyes to good anime anime that is 100 times better than the crap they showed on cartoonnetwork and wb.

The first real anime i ever saw was Vampire Hunter D. Me and my friends were getting drunk after school in 1994. One of my friends brought out VHD and i thought it was the coolest shit i'd ever seen. Since then i watch every series and movie i can get my hands on.

Dragonball Z is what really got me into anime. But, I have been watching anime since before DBZ. Shows such as Transformers, Astro-Boy, and I think there is more, but I can't think of it right now.

Gundam Wing. My brother was borrowing the DVDs from his college roommate and he brought them home one weekend I was home too. Then I made him borrow Eva and Bebop and Trigun and VHD Bloodlust and Lain......hehe. Unfortunately borrowing wasn't enough. My checking account just isn't what it used to be. *sigh*

Cowboy Bebop on Adult Swim was what got me really into anime, beyond just something interesting. I had been watching Toonami for about a year before Bebop came on, though.

I'm hardly a diehard, but the first anime I saw was Vampire Hunter D. (I think. Not counting this creepy short on Liquid Television about an auto racer and a reporter, or something. O_o I vaguely remember that.)

Anyhow, a friend and I were having a vampire movie night and she brought that. Fun. After that, Saturday Anime on Sci-Fi, etc. etc. etc. To this day I don't think I've ever watched Toonami apart from a couple episodes of Tenchi my then-boyfriend made me watch. :P

the first bit of anime i saw was DBZ the episode were goku fights oarzu vegita, and unlike alot of you, i don't think toonami is all that bad, well nowadays with batman beyond(which isn't too bad) and power puff girls is ludicrice. but one night at like 3:00 am i caught the end of an anime, i have yet to figure out what it was. but right after that they had ninja scroll on, i knew i was trapped then, in fact ninja scroll was my favorite anime movie until i rented suikoden. (which i highly recomend) after that i started renting from blockbuster so i got to experiance alot of older anime's, the ones nobody even here would probably know about, but the first anime i ever owned was wrath of the ninja, i got that and wings of honeomase for christmas one year. after that i went every ware i found friends who owned anime borrowed alot from him watched ones over at his house. but one of my favorite anime purchases to this day was a year ago i used ebay to buy all the dbz movies on vhs. after making hundreds of copies for my friends i got to really enjoy movie 8, the brolly movie is the best part of dbz out of any sagas or movies.
