I'm sure this thread has been made before but that was a long time ago so lets make a new one. What was the very first anime you ever saw? What kind of impression did it have on you? I'll post mine later in the thread.
The original Dragon Ball was my first anime and I got so addicted to it then I watched DBZ and followed the series so closely that I looked up all the episodes and knew what was gonna happen seasons ahead. that was my gateway drug lol
Akira was my first, even though it was a movie I watched that when I was about 9, my dad bought it and he let my brothers and I see the movie. We really didn't get it much, just knew it had a lot of blood and gore in it. I watched it when I got older and finally understood the story line.
Mine was Dragonball Z as well. I used to be overly obsessed with this program. Taped every episode and watched it over and over again. I just loved the overall aspect of the show. The non-stop action and characters were just so appealing to me. I don't watch it anymore but I do sometime look up a few clips on some of my all time favorite Dragon Ball Z scenes.
