    What anime got you into anime

    Post by ghostfreak3012 on Mon Aug 20, 2012 4:20 pm

    First topic message reminder :

    The first anime i ever watched was Dragon ball but the first anime i watched and knew it was anime is full metal alchemist
    and after finishing full metal alchemist i wanted to read it. So the first manga i ever fully read was full metal alchemist.

    Well since the topic has changed Cowboy Bebop was really an amazing series to me. It's always gold in my eyes even though it has been broadcasted repeatedly. Always reminds me of a time when I would wake up at midnight and that would just be on air. rabbit

    Yeah a friend of mine at school had asked me to watch it because at the time I just watched mainstream battle anime. At first I didn't like it, but he asked me to finish it and I did. Then after that for some reason I just craved more school life romance, and that lead me into more and more genres of anime.

    Mine was Gundam, and the firt series of it too. I miss that entire show. I really hope it's aired again on Toonami.

    First one I ever watched was Pokemon, but like most children who didn't know any better at that time, I did not realize it was Japanese in origin.

    The one that got me into non-mainstream stuff and pretty much the medium as a whole was Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. Funnily enough, the only reason I decided to watch it in the first place was because of a total coincidence pertaining to a lady friend of mine.

    Lol no, she was just REALLY into Higurashi at the time. Gruesome psychological mystery stories are just her thing.

    I'm pretty sure her tastes have rubbed off on me a bit because I enjoy those kinds of shows a lot now too.

    Now that i look back it was probably DBZ and Yu Yu hakusho that got me into anime. They were both great and still are in my opinion.
