Well it all started in my sophomore history class. I sat next to this really cute asian girl. We were friendly and talked a lot since we sat together in the back. Eventually walking out after class she invited me to go to anime club with her and watch some. Before that I didn't know practically anything about anime and so I thought why not I might meet some qts. I was dead wrong. She was the only qt. I enjoyed it so I became a member. Eventually "dated" 2 of the good looking girls and then moved schools so that was the end of that. I just graduated last may. What a ride it has been

I grew with it like cartoons, I began to run out of cartoons and the few left were terrible so I went full anime.

I saw Sailor moon once or twice as a young kid with my cousins.

Later on, in middle school and maybe high school, I watched DBZ, Outlaw Star and some Cowboy Bebop on Adult Swim.

My parents kind of stupidly bought me Jing: King of Bandits for my 15th birthday if I remember, which is really funny considering their stance on me looking at porn or masturbating, I don't think they even leafed through the thing. Or maybe I got it from a weeb friend I had in boy scouts, I can't remember, but I think it was my parents.

At some point a fujoshi attached herself to me and became my girlfriend which further enforced my slide down the slippery slope, I branched out to stuff like Love Hina, Claymore, eventually Ranma 1/2.

I went through a na**tard phase, I would prefer not to remember that this happened. Whenever I think about this point in my life I want to kill myself.

I finally started actually watching anime in a dedicated fashion with Lucky Star and Haruhi, after that it was inevitable that I would end up here.

A friend in college always carried his handheld consoles around with him and made a few passing comments about anime on occasion when he played some games, and it got me interested enough to try watching some shows just to see what the fuss was about. I watched Dragon Ball previously, but I didn't intrigue me enough to go looking for more.

naruto
>inb4 Naruto is a gateway anime of the worst kind. It's a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive shipping faggotry and DARKNESS. The normal anon can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad. However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable underageb& faggots who engage in every kind of faggotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look cool, the jutsus, peculiar, colorful clothes, the whole ninja faggotry and everything about the Naruto world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the pity-party character backgrounds, emphasis on revenge, and overall preachiness of the series make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average preteen and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes little kiddies and underageb& retards eat this shit right the fuck up. Naruto is basically THE series to attract the most hated anime fanbase known to /a/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to troll the fuck out of this show and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no Naruto threads ever encourage the newfriends to show their faces here. That being said, AB is really great, but Nyaa.eu and BakaBT are easier to get into.

Well sure.
A difference I forgot is whether or not you make it ABOUT the politics or leave them well enough alone.
A leftist faggot might complain about an all-white cast like an idiot, while a rightist faggot might complain about an obligatory minority cast member in a different movie like an idiot. Both the leftist and the rightist are annoying and getting in the way of the fun.

Anime that aired on tv were always my favorite shows as a kid, but I didn't know what anime was back then.
Then when I was 8 or 9 my older half brother showed me the naruto vs sasuke fight which blew my mind at the time.
Then I just watched every episode youtube and after that I just watched everything that looked like anime on youtube, because of that I watched a lot of the weirder ones first instead of the more mainstream stuff.

Suprisingly, 4chan, but I had always held an affinity for weeby shit and of course grew up watching DBZ/Pokemon

Back in the days of YouTubePoop being the cutting edge of memery (2008-9), I remember seeing one with a clip of "Mikuru Beam" from Haruhi and thinking the girl was cute, so some anon off /b/ told me what it was from and I watched Haruhi as my first full series.

After Haruhi, I watched NGE because of a recommendation thread on /a/ which held it as the ONE series everyone needs to have seen. I'd also always had the show title stuck in my memory from the Toonami days because it was so odd. I remembered seeing the episode with the Angel infecting the Magi computers one night in like 2005 while staying up late watching TV, and seeing redheaded Asuka on the back of an old Pokemon comic when I was like 9.

Watched TTGL after NGE, and then Eden of the East as it aired.

From 2009-2012 I watched anime pretty hardcore. Last full series I've seen was Steins;Gate

I still periodically return to /a/ to check out "wtf did I just watch" threads about EoE
