The first anime movie I saw was "Galaxy Express 999" in 1980, but it was an edited version, I wouldn't see the full version until 1995. Since then, the series that really got me hooked was "Tenchi Muyo!" and since then, I not only wanted to see other anime, but I since then began collecting anime. My collection includes the OVA "Tenchi", not to mention "Outlaw Star", "Slayers, the Motion Picture", "Tekkaman Blade II" "Blood Reign", "Plastic Little", "Dirty Pair Flash", "Princess Mononoke", "Tokyo Babylon", and right now I'm in the process of collecting "Neon Genesis Evangelion: Platinum Series" and "Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex".



Interesting history you have there. I remember 'Speed Racer' quite well. 'Racer X'..of course...being my favorite character. I also remember 'Kimba the Lion' and 'Astro-Boy'(which seems to be coming into the New Age today).

The one Anime series that I latched onto(while in Boarding School)was 'Sailor Moon'. Looking at the constant epitome's of Androgeny(the male characters of course)I felt that perhaps my own "look" was acceptable as well.

Plus...researching 'Tenoh and Michiru' made my life a lot easier. I felt that perhaps many people would understand real life human beings that are very much like those two Anime characters.

I didn't feel so alone in my life when I watched Tenoh and Michiru on Sailor Moon.

I held onto the two of them for years.

My collection has grown...and my home is an Anime Shrine. The first thing you see once you enter my home is a massive fleece blanket(that I plastered on my entrance hallway)of 'Kakashi Hatake' reading his romance novel.

After that...my home is a Shrine to many different series of Anime. 8-[

Pokémon! XDD
I was 7 years old when I first saw it. And I started to watch it because my friends played of Pokemon on the free times at school, and before I watch it, I wanted to play with them, but they didn't let me play, because I didn't know the series! XDDD
Then it was Card Captor Sakura,Dragon Ball, Yu-Gi-Oh, InuYasha.
I remember I used to watch Dragon Ball hidden of my mom, because she thought it was too violent for a 7 year-old girl watch. But I was just crazy for Trunks and I wanted to see him, so, I watched Dragon Ball without sound. XDD But after a while, she forgot about it and I started to see it with sound.
In my oppinion, pokemon was good until the 3rd season. after that, i stopped watching it everyday and i don't know any of the newest pokemons. XD

Now I'm a 100% FMA lover!! XD And I love Fushigi Yuugi too.. *-*

The first anime I ever laid my eyes upon was Sailor Moon. However, I hated the show, since its storyline was boring and all of its characters were incredibly obnoxious.

The first anime I ever liked, however, was Pocket Monsters. I stopped watching it in the middle of its second season, though, since I was beginning to grow tired of its plot.
