Before I knew what anime even was, I just thought it was a really cool cartoon. 
 
So a long long time.

 Started liking it around the end of last year. So I've only liked it for under a year.

When I was younger, like circa 95, I started watching shit like Dragonball and Fist of the North Star. They were the gateway drugs for me. Quite some time, I believe!

About two and a half years since I first actually got into it.

I first started watching when Pokemon and Toonami started which was around 1997. I was a big fan of DBZ for its entire run. I didn't fully commit to anime watching until 2007 (due to taking a break during high school with sports) and I've gotten up to over 100 series watched.

Over 100 Series watched? Wow! That is real commitment. I'm nowhere near that close. But, now that you mention it, I guess I should pace what Anime I watch.

A long, long time.  Since before "anime" was called "anime" in the West.  Hell, before it was even called "japanimation".

Since the days of the first Pokemon show (1997). Been a fan ever since I saw poor Ash get stuck with a extremely stubborn Pikachu on his first day as a Pokemon trainer that refused to do whatever he asked it to do. n_n

@BEN1000:
It gets easier if you watch on the internet while waiting for DVDs/Blu-rays to come in so you can watch them. The biggest way to watch a lot of anime is keeping up with the seasons but that has proven too much a task for me as I'm 3 or 4 weeks behind right now. You can find the list of anime I've seen in full on my profile.

11 years since I enjoyed anime and was actually aware that it was anime.  If were going for how long I've liked it even when I didn't know it was anything different than a good cartoon... hmm... probably like 23 years.  Voltron meant the world to me as a preschooler.

I think I've enjoyed anime since that TV show Ultimate Muscle came on. Or Pokemon, or Dragon Ball Z. However, that is what started me on Anime.

i grew up in the 80s watching re-runs of shows like kimba and speed racer,, then voltron and robotech. at the time i didn't know it was anime. once i got into high school . i started getting really into it. mostly from things they would show on the sci-fi channel. things like akira,macross plus and stuff of that nature.
