I had like 6 VHS tapes of Chinese dubs + subs, including the 2 VHS Doraemon crossover movie special. (Had like cameos from 8 different anime shows) So yeah, I've been watching anime for a long long time thanks to my Asian heritage. (mwa ha!)

Hmm... I can't remember for sure. All were clumped in one short period of time.

They were Vampire Hunter D, Ninja Scroll, Vampire Princess Miyu, Record of Lodoss War, and Fox's Escaflowne. I'm not sure what order but Record of Lodoss War might've been first.

Ranma 1/2: Nihao my Concubine. The natural progression led to the actual series. I don't think I'll ever be able to forget Mousse and Shampoo laughing at the Chicken Guy ^_^

The first series I ever saw were on a show called 'Japanimation' that played from 10 at night till 5 in the morning. It introduced me to Akira, Vampire Hunter D, and Dirty Pair (the original). That was quite a few years ago, almost a decade in fact. I kind of lost touch with anime when that show went off the air, and in fact it was DBZ that got me back to watching anime again... :shock:

While I was a huge fan of Battle of the Planets - and even joined the Battle of the Planets fan club... (I was like 10 or 11 then)

I still consider that what got me into anime was "Star Blazers" or "Star Cruiser Yamato"

first anime

Postby WillWorkForTrigun » Sat Aug 10, 2002 12:01 pm

I used to watch lodoss war when it was on tv until frickin parents voted to take it off, with vampire hunter d, and all that stuff...
Akira was the first anime i've ever seen though, I saw the movie only a bit after it came out...
After that, nothing much until Mononoke Hime...

The first anime show I ever saw was Samurai Pizza Cats. Weird little show. A buch of cats that were samurais, owned their own pizza restaurant, shot out of the top of the restaurant like a bullet and went to save the day.
But the show that really got me into anime was... Pokémon! Yup, that whole Pokémon craze. Then it went to shows like DBZ and Digimon, and before I knew it I was going out and checking what other stuff I was missing because I only watched the anime on TV.

Ronin Warriors for me! w00t! Then after that, I believe it was Sailor Moon and Dragonball Z when it was on UPN, as well as Samurai Pizza Cats and Mega Man (Was that anime or US done?)

Although, once I started really getting into anime, I started watching DBZ again, as well as Outlaw Star, Cowboy Bebop and Trigun.
