Probably either Pokemon, Digimon, or Sailor Moon, but Eureka Seven was the first anime I watched from start to finish fully.

reading some of these answers makes me feel old. I would have to say officially it was Starblazers that I first saw and got me interested into anime (before I knew it even came from Japan) and would even watch Saint Sieya on one of the spanish channels and catching Ronin Warriors early in the morning before going to school, but I would have to say, Ninja Scroll was the final nail in the coffin that made me aware of this genre and kept me hook ever since.

the first show that I can remember ever seeing that I didn't know was anime was the original transformers, and Ronin warriors (I can;t remember which actually came first) used to watch both religiously as a kid ;p

However the first series that got me into anime (introduced from another fan) was Ranma 1/2, Tenchi muyo, and Devil hunter yohko. He gave me all 3 of those at the same time, which were incidentally his favorites at the time ;p Ever since then I've been hooked on anime ;p

Although Transformers is a joint US-Japan production, so not sure if that really counts as anime.

Akria or DBZ I really can't remember but I am pretty sure it was Akira. That was like almost 9 years ago or so though.

I remember watching the first syndicated release of Dragonball in 1995 (and sailor moon the same year). Before that I can recall watching the mashup that was Voltron (on scifi I think) in, maybe 1993 or 1994. According to wikipedia and ANN, Samurai Pizza Cats beats that out by a bit. I know I watched the initial airing of that show in 1990/1991. I think i'm going to have to go with that, despite everything on the list above being horrible rehash/rewrite dubs.

I saw Voltron the first time around which must have been in the mid 80's. I was always a Gobots fan though.... stupid cats. Didn't know they played it again. Watched SPC a little bit too when it came out. Probly just one episode cuz I can't remember a damn thing about it anyway :/
