The first Anime I watched was Transformers. I was a huge fan of it when I was a kid, but didn't actually know it was an Anime. I loved it so much, I've still got a few of the First Action Figures made for transformers; which happen to be made out of metal; but not all of them have the original packaging
The first Anime I went out and bought was Hellsing. I've always been a huge fan of Vampires and when I saw it in my local Comicbook Shop, just had to buy it! Now I can't wait for the new OVA to be translated!
