20, adult swim

12. I spent the night at my friends house, and he recorded it on VHS from Adult Swim. We spent all day playing War of the Monsters on PS2, and then we watched FLCL. First anime I ever saw outside of DBZ.
>>
14-15. I heard about it on the internet somewhere and torrented it
>>
>>133910362
13 or 14 or so, Adult Swim. This and Bebop got me into anime. 25 now.
>>
I don't remember, 9 or so probably. My weeaboo dad recorded it on VHS and I watched it with him a few times.
>>
56.
Ancient internet techniques.
>>
17. Heard it was a masterpiece with a three-dimensional MC and a great ost, so I decided to buy it on bluray to see how it was. It's a fucking masterpiece.
>>
>>133910362
32, I think? I watched it with an old college buddy of mine. That would have been about 8 years ago so I think it's in the ballpark.
>>
13-14. watched it on TV after renting it from local library.

Nearly 12 years ago

18, at a con in our room on adult swim.
like half the room had never smoked weed before and i generally always have some (especially at cons, holy fuck) so they were all fuckin' gone; recorded some interpretations of what they thought they'd just watched afterward. it was fun.

Probably like twelve on adult swim way back in the day. Good times.

Last year. Torrented Blurays. One of my favorites but disappointed I wasn't into anime as a kid.

I wish I'd seen this at 13, I was still stuck watching whatever was on the airwaves.

Either 17-18 or 18-19, high school or college.

I think I listened to The Pillows before seeing the series.
>>
>>133910362
11 or 12 Maybe, on Adult Swim I'm sure.
I remember my mom commenting how she liked it. I really liked the ED as I did with most anime airing at the time.

13. On Toonami the first time they aired it. I was spending that August at a cousins so me and two of my cousins my age stayed up for Toonami 6 days in a row to watch it on their hueg TV. And it was a miracle that we accidentally watched the first episode.

I couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect scenario to enjoy it for the first time.

13. The bookstore at the university my dad worked at were getting rid of all of their mangos. I got FLCL 1 & 2 and Cromartie High 2 for 20p each. As soon as I finished reading it I downloaded the anime.
>>
14.

On a 6-inch dvd player while my parents drove us across the country on vacation.

Those were the fucking days.
>>
I still haven't watched it. It looks super lame.

I was 11 and caught it on Adult Swim one Saturday night. I should probably rewatch it soon. Ride on Shooting Star is probably my favorite ending song ever.
Shiki no Uta is my second favorite[/spoiler}

>>133910362
16. watched it casually like any other anime or a movie. but i rember it as one of first high quality animation i saw. the way it managed to shine whilst remaining simple and crude still amazes me today.

Sneakily watching it on Adult Swim while staying at my dad's house and hoping he didn't come into the basement and find me watching "adult" stuff I shouldn't have been allowed to. I must have been right around Naota's age then. Fuck the inevitable procession of time.

Thank you, /a/

I think 14. They aired the first episode during an "mtv anime week" they used to showcase a ton of first episodes from different anime.
I was immediately hooked and saved to buy the dvd which I thoroughly enjoyed. They're still one of my favorite belongings.

I was 12 watching it on Adult Swim.

It's kind of odd how it happened. I used to fall asleep with CN on and I woke up one night and this show was just about to start first episode. Ended up watching the whole thing. "Wow that was neat!" Fell asleep. Next night the exact same thing happened I woke up right before the second episode. Watched it again. I had no intentions on setting an alarm up for this to wake up and watch it or stay up to watch it this just happened. I somehow managed to wake up before all six episodes and watched it all. Fantastic show I couldn't comprehend. Rewatched it in full when I was older to get a better experience.

The exact same thing happened two years later but with Abenobashi when that was on TechTV. Loved that too and admit to it making me love Gainax just for these few memorable nights.

I remember yearning for episode 7 that never came. It really was cool enough that I didn't want it to end so soon.
>>
I was still in high school when I watched it, so 16 or 17? I don't remember exactly when.
Friend burned it on a CD for me out of nowhere. Partly got me into anime more than just Toonami stuff.
>>
>>133910362

Bought the first two episodes on DVD at Sam Goody at the mall when those were still around. Fucking $30 for two episodes. I watched the commentary and Anno wondered if Americans would understand a spiral mound of poop after the robots shits the MC out after the firestarter episode. Whoever the fucking girl was on the commentary kept trying to shut him up about it. I was a very confused 14 year old.
>>
Watched it in my 20's. Maybe it was already too late for me. That's why I didn't enjoyed it much.

I remember that AMV, along with the Wonder Boy one, Hail to the Thief, and the It's Gonna be a long night one.

Most nostalgic period of anime for me.

>>133910362
Must've been like 11. My cousin had it recorded on VHS. He left it at my house so I can watch it. I didn't know that anime was a thing and considered it just to be a normal cartoon like I thought with DBZ. This is how my slow decent into becoming a weeb began and how I began to feel something weird in my pants. The scene in OP's pic was caused my first awkward fap. I didn't use my hands.

Interestingly, i was 14 and i watched it via recording it at night then watching it in the morning while i got ready for the schoolday as a freshman in highschool

to this day the ED of the show strikes me with a pang of anxiety because of how i would always hear it before i had to get ready for high school life


of course, i didn't really understand what FLCL was getting at until years after high school because im a fucking idiot and that would have helped a ton

Fooly Cooly was he first time I realized I can have more than a crush on a character in a cartoon. I can Get a boner.
It more or less was my gateway to Masturbation and looking up hentai. Though the PSP was the REAL gateway to using internet every time instead of my imagination.

Great memories.

12, Adult Swim. I had no idea what was going on, but I saw there was some cursing and some nudity, and I loved the ending song.

At the time, cursing and detailed violence in anime was a foreign concept to me. 2004 was the shit.

It came out around 2000, so I guess I was around 15. Fun little show. Ending seemed happier than the manga, at least. Naota was kind of a whiny bitch, though.

Well, now I don't know how to feel. First time I watched FLCL i thought it was just about wacky zany, coming of age kids learning about themselves ans their bodies.

Later, I look up the plot and the explanations and read all about how Haruko is an alien and about some king thing named Atomsk.

I fucking missed all of that shit.

11, nearly 12. Just the same age as Naota and just after my mother left our home. I wasn't sure she would come back and got uneasy as fuck. Watched all the episodes repeatedly. Was a kid, but had a bad feeling that I had to grow up soon.

I remember making my own episode 7 in my head. It was something along the lines of Haruko coming back back when Naota turned 18.

I was 13 at the time.
