Whenever DBZ started on Toonami. So, like 9 years old. I took about a 5 year break between then and now though.

I remember watching when SciFi aired anime on Saturday mornings. I think I was 16 at the time.

I was five years old when my brother made me watch Pokemon with him, then we moved on to Digimon. Then i moved on to Toonami, and then on to Adult Swim, and a combination of Code Geass and Naruto brought me onto the internet.

+1 except that after Digimon/Pokemon I moved on to Naruto and One Piece, then Slam Dunk and others.

Around the time normal Toonami started up, or just a bit before with Speed Racer on Nickelodeon. 
 
EDIT: So around 7-9 years of age...

Hmm...I started watching when Pokemon began airing on the WBKids! block of programming when I was roughly 6/7, so that results in me watching anime since 1997.

I was in second grade when Battle of the Planets started airing on my local TV station, so I would guess 8 years old, maybe?  I wasn't until I was a senior in high school that I was able to find VHS tapes of anime in comic shops.  Project A-ko and Bubblegum Crisis were the shows, although I don't know which I saw first.

I started watching anime when I was 14 (not counting the moment I started watching Pokemon (5-6 years old) ).

8-9 years old when Sci-Fi Channel aired anime movies and OAVs frequently during the mid-1990s.
