well mine is the only anime i have ever watched. Gundam. i always enjoyed that show but i could never get into anything else, it all started one day when i was flipping around on cartoonn network and a show called G-Gundam was on. i wathed it for like ten seconds and gave up. Then i came back to it ten minutes later and saw robots fighting. Now that was my cup of tea. I continued to watch, then i grew the other Gundam series, Seed, Wing, ect. What is your number one show

Naruto :D

It has everything from comedy to action, drama, adventure and even a bit scary.. (Gaara's sick look)

At first I didn't like specifically the character Naruto I watch the anime just for watching it, I started to get interesteed (I watch random episodes at first) in the chunin exams then I saw Hynata and got a lot more interested and then Rock Lee then Jiraiya and finally Naruto's character. The will and all that grew on me because I actually jump and start screaming like crazy when he does those gutsy moves like when he protected Tsunade from Kabuto etc.

I was jumping like crazy "YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET'EM NARUTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!" :DDDDDDDDDDD and stuff lol :P

is a really good story

GTO and Kenshin off the top of my head.

DBZ got me into animes, or maybe it was MS Gundam

My favorite Anime is Naruto...and well what got me into it was that a lot of people I know on here and on the Vine are Naruto fans, and I figured I could give it a try by watching it.

My ultimate favorite series is Genshiken. I got into it when I was bored at Borders one day. I picked up the manga and was intrigued to read a book about otakus. At first, I wanted to read it to see how horrible it was because how can you read about a group of otakus but it ended up being fantastic. I ended up buying all the manga volumes and watched the anime.

My current favorite is One Piece, and has been for quite some time. Love the characters and it reminds me of anime series I watched when I was a kid, that felt like adventures (don't even remember the name of those series anymore, it was a very long time ago). Going from place to place, finding strange new places, heading toward a certain far away goal that who knows what it will really be.

Or something like that. I guess I'm supposed to hate it because it is shounen and it is popular... but I don't care about such things. And never will. I don't avoid series that are popular nor do I seek series that aren't.

What got me into it was simple curiosity. I found a place that had the openings / endings only, and I watched them many times. I remember thinking, by just watching the openings, that I wouldn't like the "long nosed" character, as he seemed too silly. How very wrong I was. Years later I remembered about the name and looked for the anime. I fell in love from the first episode and "Nami's arc" sealed the deal.

Anyway, my "most favorite" has changed with time, and if I keep watching it will keep changing. Before One Piece there was Saber Marionette J, Jubei-chan, and too many others.

My Favorite is Bleach
I got into it when someone recomeded it to me at a convention. I'm glad that happened :)

As of now, my favorite is Black Lagoon.  Akira was what really got me into anime but I was a semi-fan of it growing as a kid watching Voltron.
On a side note, back then (and a bit before I was born) there was some really awesome western cartoons.  The Hobbit, The Last Unicorn, Watership Down, the first Secret of Nimh, Rock and Rule, etc.  Hell, even some Disney stuff back then was good like The Black Cauldron. 

It's a shame that hardly any western cartoons include adult themes anymore.

Death note.
I was bored at like midnight and I turned on adult swim, the debut episode was on. I had no idea what it was but something about the colors I guess made me keep watching. I ended up really liking Light's character from the get go and I stuck with the series, even reading the manga (which I never do if something is on TV)

FullMetal Alchemist, and I really dont know why, I just love everything about it, and over all I think it's more than enough to be a candidate for the best manga of all time

Lately I would probably have to go with Ga-Rei Zero. I read the manga and then when it came time for the fall anime to come out I took a look at the list and saw that there was an anime made. Of course the manga and anime are completely different but yeah, awesome series. ^-^

Right now it's Naruto... because it's really the only one I watch right now.

My friend Rob got me into it when he showed me some jutsus from the show, and then I started watching the episodes.
