I can't remember which, but mine was either Dragonball or Dragonball Z on Toonami, though at the time I though of them as just cartoons. My real gateway anime ended up being Naruto, years later.

Mine was Sailor Moon. I know I fell for that one like any other elementary school kid. I had the dolls, toys, posters, and a bunch of other merchandise.

And now I have no idea where these things are now sadly.

I guess Sailor Moon was the first I remember seeing on tv (though it came on at a really ungodly hour iirc). However, the first one I actually watched seriously I can not remember. It was either Pokemon or DBZ. Either way those 2 are what got me loving the stuff.

"My first anime (and don't call me a noob) - was actually the Animatrix DVD. I really liked how each story was done by a different artist and had a completely different take on the Matrix story."
Have you watched the AniBatrix (AKA Batman: Gothic Knight)? It's the same concept (six shorts by different animation studios/writers/etc) but set in the Batman universe instead of the Matrix. It's pretty good.
i have gotham knight but have yet to watch it. I have it on Blu ray and im waiting to get a new HD tv after xmas to watch it. is it really that good?

as for the topic in question first anime i saw was when i was a kid and it was the Fist of the North Star movie. thought it was amazing

Either Pokemon or Dragonball Z. I forget which. My big brothers would watch DBZ and I liked it a lot...but I might've watched Pokemon before. Not sure.

I may have seen some before, but the first I remember strongly was Star Blazers / Yamato.  I think I saw that before I saw Leiji's other creation...  Still waiting for that to come up.

I think Akira was my first

I never got into Akira v.v

When I saw the part with his insides falling out, I just said to myself: "....well thats enough now". Rofl

The old stuff on Nikelodeon like puss and boots which was primarily done in a hayao miyazaki style, as well as little bits, Which lead to other shows mostly from blockbuster i was never into it for the most part just watched,  ronin warriors on tv, sailor moon which i watched simply cause it was on.

I feel out of favor with anime about the mid 90's realizing most of it wasn't any different then other anime, so i stuck mostly to high budget productions, and hayao miyazaki stuff.

*feels old* there are earlier animes i watched but its all ready starting to date my self and my age with the old nikelodeon stuff.

I'm pretty sure my first was Escaflowne. I was, like, 5, so most of it probably went over my head and I can't remember it.

Either that, Pokemon, or DBZ (none of which I still watch).
