They had a channel called animax on my television and it aired my first ever anime that's not pokemon or dragon ball. I got hooked after that.

I was watching a stream on twitch.tv when the streamer started talking about SAO. I checked it out and I thought it was the best thing ever but now that I have watched over 200 anime, SAO is probably in the bottom %5

I just tried anime today for the first time. My sister used to watch it and I've wanted to try it for a while, and since I'm taking a Japanese class rn I thought it would be a good time to start watching anime for listening practice.

Partly because of the graphics, and partly because of a few friends' influence. :P Not very interesting, I was honeslty simply drawn in by the pretty graphics and interesting plots.

My first anime was a few episodes of Hetalia (other than Pokemon etc on tv) and the first anime I properly watched and which got me into anime was Guilty Crown, even though now I typically watch Slice of Life type of anime more often than action and other similar genres (I don't mind action though, I just want either emotion or laughter)

EDIT: I just remembered watching a trailer of Guilty Crown on Animax, which kind of pushed me into taking the plunge. I didn't really watch Animax (the channel) much though, I prefer to watch at my own pace.

Started with Yugioh originally, and because of it played the game on a competitive level (Have quit now though). After Yugioh, there was Pokemon, Naruto, One Piece, just anything that was on TV. Non mainstream anime for me started when I got to high school. This person at the time that I liked watched anime, and one of my other friends at the time who was close to them suggested me to watch Ano Hana, as it was one of their favourite animes. From Ano Hana came other animes and other genres. Fairy Tail was my next anime after that, and funnily enough, that's the only thing that I've still kept up with up to date for the moment (Manga wise). My favourite anime of all time though has to be Gurren Lagann.

I grew up with it. I was exposed to it by Cartoon Network in the 90s. I grew up watching shows such as DBZ, Pokemon, Cowboy Bebop, Gundam, Outlaw Star, etc. Too be honest, if you were from my generation and didn't know what anime was, you probably lived under a rock. We had a whole day dedicated to trading Pokemon cards at my school growing up.

I never had the Scifi channel as a kid.

My brother told me to watch Fairy Tail back in 2012, but I kept saying no. Until one day the just forced me to watch it with him, and I loved it from the 1st episode. And now seriously, I love anime so much. And I'm glad I started watching anime, it somehow led me to kpop. Weird but, Anime>Jdrama>Kdrama>Kpop lol
