Remember the anime or actually remember watching it?
There is a difference.
>>
>>153897272
Pokemon.

First I remember watching was Akira.

First I probably watched but can't remember watching were on Adult Swim like Rurouni Kenshin and Sailor Moon and Dragonball. Can't believe I actually watched so much Sailor Moon though don't even think my sister was with me, I was just into everything they showed indiscriminately I guess, although I only remember tuning in specially for DBZ.

Sailor Moon I think.

I obviously didn't know it at the time, but this is technically the first.

Probably pokemon, dragonball, CCS, sailor moon or stuff like that.
But if we are talking about some of the more older obscure stuff that we watched as kids probably something like calimero, wowser(?), ox tales or Alfred J Kwak(ahiru no quak is what it was called in japan.)
I also watched the once upon a time... series, but I have no idea which one, I think it was the one set in the human body.

Yugioh or Code Geass when I got serious.

Probably Speed Racer.

The first anime I watched knowing that anime was a thing would've either been Tenchi or Gundam Wing, not sure which came first, and the first thing I ever watched subbed was one of the Project A-Ko movies on late night Sci-Fi channel, I think.

>>153903414
It would've been Kazaa or something instead of torrents, but the first anime I can remember downloading was Zeta Gundam. (In postage stamp-sized horrible fansub form, or course.)
>>
>>153903414
Gundam Seed, I guess? Or Bleach.

some show on VHS that my parents rented on vacation.

I can't remember anything except that it was about huge animal mechs and that one was a gorilla that beat its chest to make a sonic wave attack or something.

My parents stopped it pretty early through the tape though since it was more violent than what they expected based on the tape case cover (I was pretty young at the time), so I have never been able to figure WTF is was. Had to have been made in the mid 70s to mid 80s I'd guess.
>>
>>153897272
Pokemon, when I was a little kid I was obsessed with it.
They used to air a lot of 90s anime here, and some local TV channels used to air obscure OVAs at night.

The old hunter x hunter anime.
>>
>>153897272
The first one I remember watching was Speed Racer, but I think the first I actually followed was Medabots. I'm not sure I knew it was anime at the time though.

This is actually pretty easy for me to remember, since it's what actually got me into anime. It was Eva, which someone recommended I watch because I liked Pacific Rim.

Same thing happened to me, although no one recommended it. I saw people comparing Pacific Rim to Evangelion and decided to check it out because the mecha looked cool. So, yeah, I've only been watching anime for a few years.

As for what the anime was, I'm pretty sure it was either Sonic X or Rockman.EXE.

>>153897272
Probably pokemon (which my mom would take me and my brother to rent from blockbusters after we got into the card game, I think the first we ever watched was the Pokemon Heroes movie), though it's possible there were other Saturday morning shows I'm not remembering. Incidentally, I think I actually knew the term anime at the time, but just thought it was a general "fancy" term for cartoons, and wondered why all these cartoons were Japanese or had had Japanese shit in them. I also fell for the 4kids jelly doughnut thing and thought that's what Japanese jelly doughnuts really looked like.
