    I have vague memories of Robotech and the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. But the first shows I watch semi-regularly were Sailor Moon and Dragonball Z. The later of which put me into an anime watching frenzy.

      I remember watching Voltron but what I'd really consider my introduction to anime was Fist of the Star. I was flabbergasted and amazed at what I was beholding. I didn't even know animation existed for adults.

            I discovered anime late in life. My first one was Dragon Ball Z. Than I watched some space anime about grappler ships but don't remember the name. afterwards:
            Trigun
            Naruto
            Bleach
            Chrome Shelled Regios
            Full Metal Alchemist
            Flames of recca
            and many more, all ninja, samurai and fighting animes.

              UFO Robo Gurendaizā was my first, but I only knew it as "Goldorak", and it was in French, so I never understood a damn word, this was in the late '70s -- or early '80s -- it was on channel 2 in Quebec on antenna.

              Would you believe, I've still never seen it in English or original Japanese.

              I should really try and track it down!

                Like many people I first discovered Anime on Toonami back in the late 90s/early 00s with shows like Dragonball Z,Sailor Moon,and Techni Muyno.

                    Like a lot of people, it was Pokemon, but also a lesser known anime called Flint the Time Detective. I doubt anyone remembers it other than me and maybe a few others.
                    These aren't my rules. Come to think of it, I don't have any rules.

                      I remember it, tried to watch it, didn't care for it.
