The oldest thing I remember watching was Saint Seiya, but I didn't know it was an anime. The first time I heard about japanese animation was when Dragon ball became popular (I was like 9), but for some reason, I didn't like it too much. Just watched a few episodes.
Then came Pokemon and it was the first anime I followed that I actually knew it was anime. I also watched Card Captor Sakura and Conan and some others series on the tv.
Then some friends began to go to anime events and one of them introduced me to Naruto (around 4 or 5 years ago) and so I got into downloading fansubs. The first anime's I remember downloading were Azumanga Daioh, School Rumble and Bleach (I dropped it some time later, however, along with Naruto).
And that's my story.

Since I was 4? But that doesn't count. I will say I started to get addicted to it near the end of last year 2008 when I started playing Stepmania Anime mix. I remember the first few shows I watched are Angelic Layer, Shana, Lucky Star, Haruhi, Sky Girls. Then at the start of 2009 I got into Ture Tears, Index, Toradora, Minami-ke, Nanoha, Kamen no Maid Guy, Kannagi, Kodomo, AIR and a few Detective Conan which I have 543ep, all Live actions, OVA and Movies (Not the latest 1 tho). All these are between Oct 08 - Mar 09. And from there on I started watching ongoing show such as K-ON!, Eden of the East and Kurokami and now because I'm running a forum so I get to watch way more stuff then before. Now I'm watching Needless, Saki, Bakemonogatari, CANAAN, Hayate no Gotoku!!, Haruhi 2 (Bloody endless 8), Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 and Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou. This is basiclly a simple version of my anime history. More detail on MyAnimeList if you want to have a look and see how much time I killed with anime. LOL! :P

I started watching anime since 5 years old, but i watched it only once a week because my local TV station just aired few anime and only on sunday. The shows started with Sailormoon, Dragonball, and Doraemon started from 7am-9am.Then Digimon aired when I was in third year elementary school. :bigsmile: I wathced Dragonball since kindergarten and the show ended when I was in second year highschool :shock: For now, many TV station airing most popular anime like naruto, eyeshield21, Bleach, and many more. I don't watch Bleach on TV because the dubbing is very horrible, so I watch Bleach from downloading in some fansub.

Does watching Pokemon/Sailor Moon/Digimon/Dragonball on tv count? I dont know which one of those shows aired first.

If not my first downloaded anime was probably Shana s1 but honestly I have no idea if I have seen something else before. If I had to guess I would probably say around 2006-2007. (actually Im surprised that its only 2-3 years, it feels to me like an eternity haha)

edit1: After a google search the first broadcasting of Pokemon on a german channel was ... 1999 o_o
edit2: Sailor Moon around 1997-1998 wtfff

Would mean its at least 8 years (considering that I didnt start from day1) that I was (partially) into anime, though the guess when I started active downloading is probably more or less correct.
