    I used to watch those Japanese Nick Jr. shows like Grimm's Fairy Tale Classics. So those would be the first anime that I saw. The show that made me a full-fledged anime fan was Sailor Moon.

    I'm pretty sure the first anime I watched regularly was Pokemon, though there may have been some obscure ones from before that which I misremember now. After Pokemon, there came Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, and Gundam Wing (still the best Gundam series in my opinion).

    Yea mine was "Speed Racer" too before I knew it was a Japanese show. I still loved it! However after that it was "Sailor Moon." My brother is a big anime fan and he thought I would like it and he was right. I'm not into anime much but do like that and Tenchi. I do like Avatar though. And who could forget "Hello Kitty"?

    Samurai Pizza Cats


    I remember when I saw an episode of that after The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, and it was such a blur to me. Then last year, I saw the Japanese version on YouTube and fell in love with it, until I found out that only the first two episodes were subbed. Then I compared the Japanese version with the dub version, and they felt like two different shows.

    I mean come on, they changed a fox character into a rat for the dub, and even I knew that it was a fox when I first watched it at the time.
    I want to be a dentist.

    I know where you can download raws of the original. I've only seen those first two eps subbed too and some raws, but my Japanese is much too limited to get it.

    Anyway, the reason that Samurai Pizza Cats and Kyatto Ninden Teyandee seem like two different shows, is because SPC was "blindly written", I guess you could say. When getting the rights to KNT, Saban didn't have a script to go with it, and made stuff up for it.

    I really wish we could get a dub/sub of the series on DVD.

    It depends since it was a syndicated show. It used to come on at like...7:30 on weekday mornings here on a station called BKN (which was shared, sorta, with UPN).

    Speed Racer when I was 4. I knew it was Japanese; probably because my brother could read the Japanese names in the end credits.

    My first anime that wasn't edited or dubbed for US TV, though, is either:

    the movie Macross: Do You Remember Love? (A friend of the family was an early anime fan, and he had an nth generation bootleg of the film, without subtitles. It still rocked.)

    or the anime "Zillion" (Anyone else remember the games "Zillion" or "Zillion 2: The Triformation" For the Sega Master System? No? Just Me?)

    I saw both when I was 10-11 year old; can't say which I saw first.

    Grimm's Fairy Tale Classics and Robotech were the first ones I watched.
    Later I watched Speed Racer, Adventures of the Little Koala, Noozles, Sailor Moon, Hello Kitty, Maya the Bee, Astroboy, Voltron, The Lil' Bits, and I think Tenchi Muyo.

    Well here, it came on channel 39 KHTV at 6 AM. I never got up that early since I didn't have to go to school until 9 AM. It sounds like a good show though.

    For History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi fans, I think the next chapter will be the last. This anime has been running for twelve years.

    A creepy Alice in Wonderland cartoon I didn't even know it was Japanese at the time I discovered it was Japanese later from a website. Don't ask me why it scared me it just did here's the intro.

    Another one that I found to also be kind of scary was a Wizard of Oz one that was Japanese as well.

    Other than that all other anime shows were pretty much tame.
