    I started reading a manga called Yu-Gi-Oh! and I got hooked on it and one day I was
    flipping through the tv seeing what was on and it was Saturday morning and Yu-Gi-Oh!
    was on WB now called CW and I started watching the show when I was 12 and I didn't
    know what anime or manga was until I started paying a little more attention to my
    Shonen Jump magazines.

    Re: What got you into anime??

    When I was younger, my brother showed me some episodes he had on a tape of the series "Slayers" and I absolutely fell in love. He was a really old school anime fan, had imported tapes with subs that had been taped over and copied some 5-6 times, the image quality was garbage to put it nicely. However, from there I just found more and more that appealed to me through my brothers collection until I got out on the internet and started finding stuff on my own.

    Slayers is still to this day my favorite anime though! It was my gateway.

    Well, it's kinda funny... Before I was into anime I had this friend who watched it alot, and I was like... FREAK! get a life and stop watching all those childish cartoons. One they that friend told me about Airantou, a man stuck on an island full of (somewhat horny ) women... Like the person I am I just couldn't resist to check it out and what the hell, I liked it =D From there I began to watch more anime and also other themes of anime, although ecchi is still a big part of my collection

    I can't believe none of you have said Akira. For Me I was born in Goleta, California, So unlike most I never really saw a true anime. All I had seen as a kid but had no clue to what it was was Voltron, Robotech, Sailormoon and Ronin Warriors. It wasn't until the Sci-fi channel came out with anime midnight's back in the early 90's was when I first got to see or even know what the genre "Anime" was and it was by pure chance. I was at my grandmothers house with the flu and I couldn't sleep, so I was laying on the sofa watching tv and channel surfing. While I was channel surfing I saw the Japanese flag on the screen with the sci-fi logo and the words anime midnight above it and just couldn't figure out what "Anime" means, so I was a little bit curious to what it was and so I continued to watch the show. Luck for me the anime movie that was on was Akira and I got bit by the anime bug watching Tenchi Muyo, Outlaw Star, DBZ, etc. I love Anime for it's ablity to turn art from artwork into a full story like a tv show or even a movie but unlike those things, it shows a different perspective that live action can always strive to perfect but can never show or even come close to get right, that is why I am into Anime and it all started with Akira.
