When I was a kid?
Saw some episodes of
They didn't air too much chinese cartoons in my country, and still don't.
Pretty much all the kind of kiddie anime >_< Actually I think my first one was Gundam or Pokemon? I cant really remember at the moment but I do know one of my personal favorite movies from back when I was a kid was Princess Mononoke and I am currently watching it on netflix. Still my the best Miyazaki film imo :P
*turns head at desk and sees all Tokyo Pop volumes*
if your talking about Evangelion, I have read them all. Just last few years, I've veered away from watching the anime and just reading manga. easier for me and I can keep up with a lot more series then watching only a small handful of anime.
Which reminds me I need to catch up on the latest X-Men Anime series missed the last few episodes of the recent series.
Yea I was the same with Negi as well. Still read Negi (slow to release online though, even though it appears to be ending soon). Only checked out the first couple of chapters of the Neo Negi series or whatever and wasn't as impressed.
I actually got into Love Hina from the calendar artwork (found the wallpaper of the crew in the hot spring and just fell in love with the look). Picked up the first couple of chapters and kept with it ever since. Haven't watched/read Love Hina recently though but it's a fun series. It was one of these two images that got me hooked:
The earliest I can remember would be watching Dragon Bball, Gundam Wing, Evangelion, and Zoids in the late 90's - early 2000's. I was only like 5-6 years old when a lot of these older animes premiered in the states so it's hard to remember them all.
