Default WHAT or WHO is the reason why you're watching Anime?

If I were to ask, it's because of Shanks from One Piece. Though I've watched some animes before One Piece, e.g. Dragon Ball, Hunter X Hunter, etc., He's the reason why until now I'm still watching anime. At first, I don't like One Piece because I find it kinda boring but when Shanks appeared in episode 4 and got spilled by sake (not so sure if that was sake or beer) I thought he's cool. Though I keep asking myself why the hell he didn't fight back. After that, I saw/heard my most favorite line coming from an anime character. "Listen up… You can pour drinks on me, you can throw food at me… You can even spit on me. I’ll just laugh that stuff off. But… Good reason or not… Nobody hurts a friend of mine." Because of that, I became a One Piece fan and a big fan of Shanks.

I think when I started watching tv as a kid the occasional anime series used come on like mysterious cities of gold and sailormoon. Kinda got me hooked then I moved on to gaint robo and I guess the hand drawn animeation was incredible, I remember watching Shadowskill which you could see such detail in the art work the colours and how good the dubbing was.....

The Sailor Moon reruns I'd watch or on DVD and the Toonami lineups are probably the reason why I still watch anime.

Not to mention I'm watching more anime rather than cartoons and a ton of normal cable shows since none of the cartoons are like how it used to be.

Hamtaro was my shiz. Hands down. B|

Default Re: WHAT or WHO is the reason why you're watching Anime?

As a kid, anime always looked interesting to me. My older cousins that babysat me were into it along with video games and pokemon cards. Since I looked up to them, and I couldn't keep up with the stories in each show/movie, I felt like it was just some cool older kid thing that I didn't understand. So that's where my interest began.

Turns out I was right all along, because I later started watched anime, and now I'm the cool one B).

Me, I'd have to say it was Sailor Moon that started it all. I even had the manga. But I didn't actually watch anime because of it being "ANIME" until Digimon and Dragon Ball rolled in. It kind of helps that both of them were shown next to each other every weekend mornings (Dragon Ball was at 9.30 and Digimon was at 10.00).

I used to watch whatever was on TV and was interesting. Then my sister told me we could watch anime on the internet. I have been watching anime ever since.

Pokemon and Toonami.

That's pretty much it. They were the gateway guys, and I was never the same since.

I'd have to say that it was Naruto that got me into anime. I'd seen stuff like Sailor Moon and Hamtaro before it, but I hadn't really known they were "anime" when I'd been watching them originally. xD;

Dragonball Z and Inuyasha was the key anime that got me hooked for good. I love good story line anime with great voice acting. If the voice actors are not good, it can kill an anime for me.
