What was Literally the first anime you remember watching?
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.
I obviously didn't know it at the time, but this is technically the first.
I don't know the name but I remember enough to give good descriptions of it
>takes place in some european or white country
>girl living with I think adopted family
>adopted dad fucking hates her
>throws her out of the house
>man travelling in carriage with 3 dogs and monkey becomes her new parental figure
>they travel together
>attacked by wolves in snowstorm
>the two smallest dog and new parental figure die
>girl, last dog and monkey travel to their destination
>some orphanage in the big city
>oprhange man owners a dick
>gets along well with the other orphans and stuff
>there was an episode where an orphan got sick and girls orphan love interest played the violin well to get money on a street performance for medicine
>eventually girls real mother whose mega rich is found
>girl reunites with her real mother and she also adopts all of her orphan siblings
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.
Isn't it one of those Euro/jap collabs like moomin?
Noozles, I was devastated as she meet her grandfather for the last time. That shit was too heavy for a toddler anon.
whats the first anime you remember torrenting
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.
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.)
probably one of these
viva la 70s
Probably Samurai Pizza Cats. Granted, I didn't know it was "anime" at the time.
>first anime I knew was an anime
Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan
>first subbed anime
Probably Doraemon (though at the time I didn't see how much different it was to other cartoons.)
>If its about the more action packed stuff?
I'd say Gatekeepers. Shun Ukiya was my cool "burāda".
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.
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
Lillibit gave me a thing for girls with long hair
so? better than a show about incestous bananas.
Literally? Like are we speaking on literal terms right now?
no course not, that's probably why op said he wanted to know litereally what the first one was
Maple Town Monogatari
Nobody's Girl Remi
I watched the male version of that one and the plot is basically the same.
Aside from the general stuff like Pokemon, Shugo Chara was my first
First movie: dub of Totoro when I was like 4.
First show: dub of Speed Racer
First torrent/sub: GITS SAC
My parents rented it from Blockbuster thinking it was just some dumb kids movie
>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.
this was on rerun next to speed racer for decades
Fuck knows, but I know my first experience downloading anime was through IRC. I fucking hated using that shit so much.
As for what the anime was, I'm pretty sure it was either Sonic X or Rockman.EXE.
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.
It showed in latin america and some parts of europe complete and in a decent time frame unlike in the US where it first showed after 2000.
They had it in the late 80s/early 90s only a couple years after the first japanese airing.
I wish I could've stopped before I came and been normal instead. Why anyone would choose to get into this media and talk with these people is beyond me.
Welcome aboard! Prepare to see autism on a whole new level!
Saint Seiya, 1994.
I remember watching this and being amused and confused.
I thought it was because I didn't know enough about "Asian stuff". Turns out it had more to do with the fact that it was a script-free gag dub.
Maybe DB, my country actually got it before z and it was cool
But obscure shit than only nostalgiafaqs remember... CyberCat Kuro-chan and Kinnikuman
I still want to find the full manga/anime of cybercat kuro chan
Watched most of Gurren Lagann in an anime club. It caused me to despise dub Kamina, but I grew to appreciate him sounding more like a teen trying to sound like a hero, rather than a guy who sounds like an old hero.
The earliest I can remember was Speed Racer, then came the regular toonami anime with some saturday morning series like shinzo and monster rancher.
This was back before torrenting was really a thing but Fullmetal Alchemist when adult swim was airing only the first half of the series for a long time before airing the second half. Was probably my first subbed anime too.
