tbh, I only ever watched DBZ & YuGiOh growing up but, I noticed that AKB48 had an anime so I watched that towards the end of 2012 and then I watched Death Note and then I just didn't stop watching animes. I've seen a lot now.

Used to watch Yu Gi Oh, Bey Blade, Metabots, Sailor Moon etc. as a kid. Then progressed to watching AMV's of said shows. Then, thanks to the internet, I found out about Bleach and Naruto. Showed it to my friend who then showed me Hana Kimi Drama version. Which then led me to watching Ouran HSHC.


All this in about the time frame of like two years... After Ouran it just led to me watching other shows, like Furuba, Special A etc.

I randomly bought the first Sailor Moon book when I was a kid. After that, I read the series until Stars (which was discontinued by then) and then began reading other shoujo series (Tokyo Mew Mew, Cardcaptor Sakura, Ultra Maniac, etc.)


My first anime was Sailor Moon. It'll always be my favorite. ;A; I'm super excited for everything that's coming out now, though.  :happy:

Then Yuyu Hakusho and Evangelion (my cousin recorded Eva in a VHS from a cable channel)

Then the 14kps Internet

Then those horrible Anime events -_-

I used to watch Yugi Oh, Pokémon on TV. Saw a CardCaptor Sakura movie in a shop, made Mum buy it. Several years later saw a Yugi Oh film on TV, reminded me of CardCaptor Sakura (lol), talked to my friend about anime, she told me about Bleach and the rest is history really.

It guess I started watching Gundam Wing and Dragon Ball Z at a friends house after school but It wasn't until a few years later when Cowboy Bebop and Gundam 08th MS Team started to show on Midnight Run/Adult Swim that I started to get into it for myself.


Discovered fansubs when I heard some people in school talking about how there was a new show called Samurai Champloo from the people that made Cowboy Bebop and I went looking on the internet for a way to watch it. The rest is history.

When I was a kid, UFO Baby, Cardcaptor Sakura, Super Gals, DBZ, Angelic Layer, etc. were shown on tv every afternoon/weekend, which sparked my interest. It became my habit to watch them all when I came home from school, regardless of genre.


The only thing that changed now is I became choosy, I now tend to pick those with romance (or shoujo). With a few exceptions, of course. :)

A friend of mine brought a manga to school in 6th grade and I borrowed it from her. (It was Hibiki's Magic). From there I went on to read more manga and eventually watch subbed anime.

I used to watch Pokemon when I was a kid. I was obsessed with Bulbasaur and collected cards, plushies, toys and stuff that were related to Bulbasaur.


There was a shop that used to sell anime stuff and I was a regular customer. Noticing that I bought a lot of things from them, the owner of the shop gave me an anime keychain (can't remember which anime) as a thank you gift. I saw the same anime on the television and fell in love with it. More anime were released and I watched some of them.

Doraemon, Detective Conan, and Ore Wa Teppei when I was a kid, then came Cardcaptor Sakura and Pokemon.

I only started searching up episodes on the internet after watching Naruto on Cartoon Network though, lol.
