hmm, i dunno. it's either "Captain Tsubasa" when i was 2, or "My Daddy Long Legs" when i was 3.... i still remember when i saw the dubbed version of them on our TV... ah, nostalgia...

but if we're talking about when i seriously started watching anime, then it's naruto...

pokemon
digimon
cardcaptor sakura

Exact same, except CCS 1st. and all of them on Cartoon Network xD DBZ also used to be aired but i was more into cycling, exploring and video games then. xD
but i came to know all these fall under something called 'anime' and about manga some 2-3 years after (and 4-5 years after i 1st saw CCS).

Sailor Moon, mostly, with my sister.

But there was a night when I caught Macross Plus on late at night, I think it was on sci-fi... All my brainpower are belong to that specific spledidular moment in regantorian childhood. :333

^---Ranma is what it is called I believe.


First Anime's: Armitage III, Akira, Appleseed, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, DragonBall series (Most)

All that came on Toonami back in 1997. Voltron, Sailor Moon, and I think it was called Robotech, but I'm not sure.
However I didn't watch any of those faithfully. DragonballZ was the first anime that I watched faithfully and it even started my love and obsession with manga and anime. Gohan was even the first anime character I drew. :)

It's basically the same with me except for the manga it would have to be +Anima.

My first anime were Shin Chan, Samurai King, Pokémon, Digimon, and Dragonball Z. I watched dragonball Z with my brother when I was like, 5, I think. We watched it in Japanese sometimes for fun, and we laughed because it sounded funny :)
The first manga is Dragonball, since we had a Dutch version of it at home, around five volumes. (don't know how we even got those)

And the first anime I watched online, from start to end, was D.N.Angel. And it got me hooked on anime instantly. (even though it was shoujo..)

I read my first manga, Inuyasha, when I was like five years old. Not exactly ideal for that age, but it got me into what I do now.

My first anime was either Pokemon or One Piece, I can't really remember.

I probably watched Pokemon and stuff as a kid, but my first proper venture into the world of manga was Fullmetal Alchemist. After that I started watching Bleach and I slowly became more of a manga/anime fan. Now I am obsessed with it!

The anime that I ever watched was Sailor Moon when I was about 3 and it came out in Australia... after that it would have been the usual suspects, Pokemon, DBZ and Digimon... The first one that i would have watch online would have been Naruto.

The first manga that i would have read would have been Ultra Cute... it was on special 3 books for $5:cat_rosy:
but i havent bought any more since then
